What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday - week 156. I haven't posted in a week - since last "Workdesk Wednesday!" I had a great weekend at the Portobello West show over the weekend, and have been puttering around, doing a little of this, little of that. Today I've been making invitations for my daughter's 6th birthday party: Stamping Ground to peek in on other's Wednesday projects!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday - week 155. Today's Wednesday - the day to head over to Julia Dunnit's blog: Stamping Ground to take a peek into people's work desks! Today I'm working on repurposing some bottle caps into magnets and brooches. A local store has requested a stock re-fresher, and I'm also participating in a market: "Portobello West Fashion and Art Market" on Saturday and Sunday.

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday - week 153. Today I'm working on some glass necklaces. Last Sunday's craft fair was such a success that I'm scrambling around, making some new stock for this upcoming Saturday's fair! Here's my workdesk today....it's funny how you see things more clearly in photo's. I didn't even realize that I was working alongside a lego plane and rubber snakes! Of course my coffee mug is always there too....and I see an old JJ Bean napkin (coffee plays a major role in my life it seems!) Paper-Ya is one of my favourite local stores! Stamping Ground" for a ton of work desk eye candy!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday week 152. I'm prepping for another upcoming craft show this weekend, so I've got tons of odds n' ends happening in my workspace this Wednesday! I've been drilling holes through scrabble tiles: first started making necklaces, I used to glue bails on top of them.....until I was at a fair, and the freaking tiles started falling to the table, while the bails and necklaces were still hanging on the stand. I think the problem was that I had them outdoors overnight in cold winter temperatures, then they were set up in a hot room, and the glue became brittle? I don't know, but I was SO EMBARRASED and horrified, I went out the next day and bought a huge drill press! Stamping Ground to have a peek into other people's work spaces this Wednesday. Some people have lots of things scattered around like me, while others are so (enviously) neat and tidy with their spaces. It's fun to peek into other people's worlds! Have a great Wednesday everyone!

A while ago, I was crazy about making magnets out of recycled ceramic tiles. I took a break, and have recently been bitten by the magnet-making bug again! These are much different from my old bird ones......but don't worry - birds will be sneaking into these new magnets too! Here's a little sampling of the newbie magnets: Got Craft? You're always sure to find something unique and awesome there! I've been cutting and glueing and packaging like a mad woman!
