WOYWW - 19 January 2010

What's this? Wednesday again already?! Where does the time go?!

Every week I swear to myself that I am going to visit all the WOYWW desks... and every week I fail miserably! So my apologies to those folks who I didn't get around to this time - I shall try harder this week! :lol:

So what's on my workdesk this week?


Actually quite a productive desk this week - and still fairly tidy following my massive blitz a few days ago... although the clutter is starting to build up again as I pull out stash for projects I'm working on. I have actually managed to get a bit of crafting done in recent days - a couple of ATCs and a scrapbook LO, as seen in a previous blog post, and what you see on the desk today:


A birthday card for my mum - bit of a last-minute make as it's her birthday tomorrow so I need to post this today! I bought this fab stamp a couple of months ago and immediately thought it would be perfect for a card for my mum! :lol:


The finally-finished faux dichroic glass pieces that I have been working on, off and on, for weeks! I finally got around to doing the final step in the technique by adding the UTEE. I'm quite pleased with the results.

You can also see in the main picture another in-progress set of ATCs... the background is sitting on the mini-easel and the stamped clock faces will also form part of the design. The background isn't finished yet, I need to do some inking to bring out the cracks of the crackle glaze.

Thanks for stopping by my blog - please do leave a comment. And if you're new to WOYWW and are wondering what it's all about, head on over to Julia's Stamping Ground blog for the full list of workdesks to take a peek at.

You are mega-busy! The stamp on your mum's card is lovely and she will love it. The jewellery is coming along nicely and ATCs are fun to make. I only make them because I like the size...just keep mine, just for fun!!!
Have a great day

That new stamp is great, and you've made a nice job of the card for your Mum. The Slice is quite good for making masks. Interested to see your variations. Thanks for visiting.
