It's Wednesday Again!

This is my desk this week, not much on it eh? Not much different to last week, just a few more 'Christmas hearts' and some tissue!
Last week someone dared me to show all my desk as I usually only show the work area bit so here it is!

As I said last week it is a total mess! Everything I have used gets shoved to the side which is why I only have such a small space to work in! Even under the desk is full of boxes and papers (mostly all the things I use regularly) so they are there on hand ready and waiting for me.
I have tried to be tidy and it just doesn't work for me, I'd spend half my time just looking for what I wanted if I put everything away!

Here is how my wreath (inspired by Leandra in her article in Craft Stamper) It looks a lot brighter in real life! All the flowers are made from metal,corrigated card, cream card and accetate all stamped, grunged, painted and stuck to the circle with silicon glue!

I also 'tarted' up my pantry this weekend. It really needed it and now I have freed up 1 whole cupboard and 1 shelf in another to squirrel away 'goodies' ready for Chirstmas!

This is whats on my desk this week! I found some georgous wooden hearts at a local garden centre at the weekend (yes I went out, yay!).
So instead of making christmas cards this year for my family I am going to give them a decorated heart! Also on my desk (which looks quite tidy in the photo but don't be fooled you can only see a little bit of it and the rest is.. well.. very messy!) is some of my new Tim stash given to me by my hubby for my birthday (I aslo had some stamps and some aquatones from my lovely son and lots of non crafty things to!)

A closer look at the hearts 2 christmas ones and 2 birthday ones. The little flower at the bottom is a sizzix bigz die (comes as a flat flower which is cut spiraled and you form the flower by rolling it around a paint brush or kebab stick).

WOYWW this week

Well I don't know where the last week went! (well I do, grandkids off school, hubby off work so there was no chance of doing anything crafty, well not for me anyway)!
So I am making up for it this week!
Although not much has changed on my desk, there are a few flowers appearing here and there! I was rather taken with Leandra's (from Paper Artsy) wreath in this months Craft Stamper. I won't say too much so I don't spoil it for those of you who haven't got your copy yet!
So I have decided to make my own version of it! Here is a closer look of my flowers.
I need lots more yet!
