What's on your Workdesk Wednesday 278

Well hello ladies,
It's a beautiful warm day here in Brisbane Australia it's 32 the kids have been in the pool, my groceries have been delivered and now it's time to do some crafting in between getting snacks for the kids, breaking up arguments.
It is the last week of school holidays here, so of course everyone is home today...
I got a special delivery of prima stuff yesterday hello beautiful new things to play with, I love both of these ranges so much the colour's the embellishments wow I am so into Prima again right now...
I am slowly sorting out my garage it's a slow period, it gets frustrating because I tend to  pull out everything when I'm doing a shabby inspired kind of layout so it always looks like a bomb has hit it.
But I have a few projects on the go right now gathering stuff to make a memoboard, making some christmas gift card holders, have photos printed to do another layout what about you  what are you working on right now...
What does your workdesk look like today?
Well just wanted to say a big thankyou to Julia for organizing our weekly blog hop around the world to check out everyone's workspaces it's so nice to see what everyone is working on.

I just downloaded a new movie off itunes for the kids to watch it's still out here in the cinemas so they are watching this right now, yes I moved the still back from the tv lol, these two were so excited to watch it.
Well I guess I should say goodbye, I hope to drop by as many desks as I can and say hello so see you later for now....

What's on my work desk Wednesday #276

Hello hello hello and Welcome to what's on my workdesk Wednesday.

I've been a bad blogger and haven't posted in ages but hey I'm here today blogging so I guess that's a start.
As for what's on my work desk hmmm I've just moved and only have half a garage to put in my craft gear so I have a lot of stuff at our other house still to move over.
I've been working on this year's Dec daily album so the place I worked was in this spot, I really need to get motivated to get my craft space sorted out as I hate working in here.

This is the new place we moved in too and I really love it, but it's not as big as the other house which has taken a lot of getting used to, but can't complain we're surrounded by trees it's kind of whimsical in the garden, the kids can actually climb a tree and play hide and seek lol.
And having a pool is always a good thing especially with our Aussie summer's.
Okay so this is the start of my Dec daily album I feel in love with one of Teresa Collins Xmas lines and then found Bo Bunny's Xmas collage and fell in love so I'm using them both in it.

Thank you to the lovely hostess Julia from The Stamping ground for hosting our weekly blog hop if you would love to join in and check out fellow crafters blogs then click here
And a special happy birthday to my son Max, we've just got back from seeing The Ninja Turtles at the movies and now it's cake time.

What's on your Workdesk Wednesday 261

I have to say I have been awol for ages, but hey it's time to get myself back into action and find time to create, I have a new place to craft and it has taken time to get it sorted out but it's finally becoming a place I craft at...
But for my workplace desk right now I'm set up upstairs on my dining room table watching Hell's Kitchen lol.
At the moment working on a few different things as usual I am in love with anything Tim Holtz inspired so I've been working on his folio's and some of his new stash, so addicted to his Wallflower paper stash so in love with the colours they just totally inspire me to document the everyday happening's of our lives right now.
I've also done a pop up birthday card for my little princess who turns 3 next Monday which is below.
Thanks for coming and visiting my blog post and thanks to the lovely Julia from Stamping Ground for organizing this weekly blog hop.
Oh I forgot to say I was lucky to get nearly front row tickets to see the Musical The King and I last week here in Brisbane and wow the set was stunning and as for the performance bloody brilliant, so I have linked you a little snippet of The King and I...

A Compendium of Curiosities challenge number 2

I decided that I really need time to craft, it's just seems to get lost with all the everyday drama's that is my life, so today I reached for my Tim book and read the distress glitter pages to get some inspiration, checked out the challenge on Linda Ledbetter's blog and got to crafting...
I decided to make a folder which will go in my May folio, it's going into the cooler months here in my part of Australia so decided to get Ms Sooky a new hoodie, and yes my pooch is named after Miss Sooky Stackhouse from True Blood.
So had to take a photo of her wearing her new clothes, can you tell she is not impressed with it lol, but the photo was to cute to not document.
Gathered my stash of which included chipboard, Wallflower paper pad, rubon's, distress paint in a couple of colours, glitter of course I stuck to clear as that is the only one I had and used my inks, paints to colour it up.

For the distress challenge I
used my inks, sticky embossing powder and distress glitter for my stamped images
I inked random parts of my diecuts used sticky embossing powder and glitter and then used some gold dabbler paint on it.
I then used distress glitter with glossy accents on my cut out florals
Then the label tag has distress glitter, glossy accents and a couple of colours of distress paints.

April's folio filled up with memories

Last month I had fun playing with the smaller sized Tim folio's, I decided to document the month and use the folio instead of my normal project life album and loved how it came out...
