Whats on your Workdesk Wednesday!

Good Morning, well I think you girls are all completely right Whats on your Workdesk Wednesday is ADDICTIVE. I am really sorry if I did not visit you all but I have four children and often get way laid from the computer or have on hanging off of me, wanting. I will try harder this week.

Thanks to all of you who visited me for such a welcome. You are a wonderful bunch and I am glad I found this wonderful Movement.

For those of you who asked the stella artois box is going to house finished projects as does the pampers box. Sorry that is not a more interesting story behind those x




Okay I tidied up a little as I felt I should show you it a tiny bit tidier. Today I wanted to showcase my ribbon storage.

I use this recycled washing tablet box. I have seen those bags where they have lots of holes for you to pull your ribbon through you know the ones you can store hundreds of ribbons in. Well here is my homemade version. Obviously it would look far prettier if I decorated it Maybe I will do that with another one. Watch this space.

Arghh as I am writing this Gordon Brown is resigning as PM and the Lib Dems have committed the sin of entering into an alliance with the Tories Arghh We are all DOOMED!!!!!!! I do like to speak my mind although others have said I should not but hey that is me.

What an honourable man Gordon Brown came across as in his resignation. I never thought he was in the wrong ,a Tory biased Media has forced him out. The Lib Dems have lost my vote and I thing quite a few more centre left votes xxx Anyway sorry if I have offended you with my rant but it prooves very cathartic to a girl who really should be following a political career.



I have also included a full length piccy for you to see what is lurking on the desk. I have a Sweet Pea image waiting to be made into a card and the Crafters Companion image that I had coloured has been transformed into a card.



Enjoy your snoop xxx I promise to try to visit x Hugs Pascale

The ribbon box looks great - and of course you have to try these things out to make sure they work before doping the prettifying, don't you? Now you can make it beautiful as your WOYWWAC project!

Lovley image for the card. At least you've made the effort with ribbon storage - I do have a obx like that but not many ribbons in, choosing instead just to stuff them in a plastic tub

Claireliz said...

great desk, as for the new government, I think the country should be run by mums & crafters after all there isn't much we can't put right over a cup of tea & slice of cake :)

Mummylade said...

very clever ribbon storage! I keep all mine in a mess in a big box...

Foil Play said...

Great idea for ribbon storage, Pascale :-)

Kay said...

Great ribbon storage idea. As for the politics... I voted for GB because I always knew he was dignified, and a bigger man than the other two unmentionables. I'm sure a lot of lib-dem voters are horrified at the sight of Clegg dropping his trousers for the tories.

Hi Pascale, I love your desk, esp the magnet board at the back. We too had elections here in the Philippines- first time it was automated. Usually it took weeks for the winners to be proclaimed, but now it was just in a matter of hours! That is at least nothing to rant about! But whatever is happening in the political scene there's always our art to keep us unstressed! Happy creating! Patsy from
