FLORAL BIRTHDAY WITH BUTTONS

Happy Saturday

Hope you are all enjoying your Saturday.  I've not really got down to a lot of crafting despite trying and only one card to post.

BUT I'll tell you the reason - I've had a bit of a sort out in the old craft cupboard...I'm intrigued (not nosey) when I stumble across craft room piccys on your blogs.  Some of you have the most divine rooms that I can only dream of. Anyway I've noticed a circular desk tidy carousel on quite a few crafty desks in blogland which I kind of thought 'WOW ... I wouldn't mind one of those!' I think the one I've seen is from Great Little Trading Company but they don't seem to have the exact one anymore :-( ... BUT all is not lost as I found a wooden desk tidy on Amazon this week and treated myself to it (early birthday pressie we'll call it) :-)))))) The desk tidy arrived TODAY so much of my afternoon has been spent having a clear out to install the new piece of kit.  Loving it already.  I will have to take some photos of my tiny little craft pod at some point and pop them on here but perhaps I'll wait until it's really tidy then another when it's really messy!!!!

So onto my card for today which I'm not entirely happy with but in the absence of anything else worth posting here it is ....

  2. Really lovely card there Sarah - what's not to like?

    I expect you know about What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) where crafters show their desks in all their messy glory each Wednesday? That's fun to take part in - although very time consuming if you're a 'sticky beak' like me and hop from desk to desk commenting. Sadly I don't really have enough time to take part very often now.

    Maybe we ought to have one week where folk show us their snippets in the Playground? :)

    Hugs, Di xx

  4. First of all, your card is so pretty, Sarah! Second, I'm in need of a crafty clear-out, too, so I feel you! I would love to see your photos! I don't think I've ever seen you on What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday (Stamping Ground), or have I just missed you? It's addicting and there are LOTS of desks to hop to, but it's very fun!!

    Also, can you put on of those "follow by email" or "subscribe" buttons on your side bar. I follow you, but when I get busy I miss a lot of posts. By subscribing, too, I will get notification directly in my email, so I won't miss any. Thanks!!
