My first WOYWW!

Welcome to my first WOYWW hosted by Julia over at The Stamping Ground.

Well, here is my work space. My friend said "Gosh it's tidy!" and my husband knew something was up when I emptied the overflowing bin and threw out a load of bits of paper! All for WOYWW! I'm sure it won't last!

 
 
 
Looking a bit closer....
 
 
 
 
You will see my nearly finished double page spread recording our recent trip to Austria (It was a working trip as we accompanied some wonderful students with Special Educational Needs) I just need to add the name of the place where we were, and I have another picture of my husband I want to scrap.
 
 
There is also a little chipboard frame which I have had for ages, which I gessoed (?) Painted it white, and used some crackle glaze on it (which was a Christmas pressie from my lovely friend Ali H, over at Craft Cauldron))  then stamped some little snowflakes on it with Distressed Ink. I added some embellishment snowflakes and a recycled silver flower from a Xmas card. 
 
It will sit on my kitchen dresser for a few weeks until the sun comes out and I begin to feel Winter has finally gone.
 
 
I have some pretty Papermania gardening toppers waiting to be made in to some cards ready for some friends birthdays coming up soon and a just started journal page which won't load up for me to show  you!
 
 
 
Thank you for stopping by!     And lastly...
 
AThought For The Week 
 
A life spent making mistakes is not only more
honorable but more useful than a life
spent doing nothing.

  3. Lovely tidy desk. I know the feeling, thinking I need to make it messy- problem is I cannot craft like that - if desk is messy my mojo just runs away!
