WOYWW 'week 60'

Hi Guys...
Not much to show on my desk this week except for a new craft sheet which I really don't want to use because it looks lovely and clean......... and my fab new stamps from Banana Frog that I won in their Blog hop.

The Flowery thing is made out of metal using the Martha Stewart punch, but not sure what I'm going to do with it yet!!
My attempt at 'Shabby Chic' didn't happen for me last week so kept going and you can see the finished result in my previous post.
Dashing off to work and I'll catch up with you all later. Have a great Wednesday.

xx

P.S. If you've arrived here on the off chance and are wondering what's going on hop over to Julia "Queen of the WOWWers" blog to find out what it's all about. Link is on the side of my blog.

Holy cow, that wall hanging from the previous post is gorgeous. I think you did a good job on Shabby Chic. Maybe a bit more chic than shabby, but still quite lovely. I'd hang it on my wall!

It looks like you have two or more of those mats stuck on top of each other. Am I seeing things? And I love the MS punch. I had no idea you could cut metal with them. BTW, I have some of those wooden matching blocks, too. I have no idea how I'm going to alter them, but you made me think about them, at least.

Sid said...

Very neat desk !!

Happy WOYWW! I spied that tacky glue! I Love that stuff...one of my favorite glues haha. Someone else has told me about Supertacky glue... I'll let you know if it has wings or something..Somehow I'm dubious that it can beat out my beloved tacky glue...
But, I am just so totally sure that you feel the same way :)

metal?? using a Martha Stewart, I can't get any of mine to even cut card, they just jam up...I mean jam meaning the non sticky stuff, eventhough it does stick... great desk, and like the new stamping thingy! Have a good WOYWW, ((Lyn))

Rosie said...

Now that's a nicely organised workdesk, and I can see all your stuff properly too. Lucky girl winning those stamps - why does that never happen to me??

itsamistry said...

That's a great desk. I can see so many lovely things on there. Funny I spotted a remote control last week on someones desk and asked if it was waiting to be altered.

I've never heard of the Banana Frog it that a new company or just the name of the blogg?
