What's on my Workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks....another week flying in and time to play along at WOYWW...aka Julia's place..where all those lovely crafters allow us nosey parkers to snoop around their crafty spaces....so what's on my workdesk today.
Yes...I finally got round to finishing off the Configuration Box  that I bought at the Artsycrafts Event and oh dear me have I set myself up for a bombardment of flack....yes folks...the crafter who has a real pet hate of naked buttons has committed the cardinal sin and is on her knees begging forgiveness...my buddies Debbi and Tina are probably laughing their heads off at this precise moment and what brought about this change of heart....plain and simple...the thought of threading all these blighters...life's too darned short.


And another of my "fools rush in" moments....now that the outside is decorated how on earth am I going to fit the lid.....but all is not lost...one of those "doesn't happen often enough" moments of inspiration....I cut a piece of chipboard to fit the back and am now in the process of decorating it to make a shadow box...
 voila....two boxes for the price of one....will share when it's finished....and no list of ingredients today...another of those "life's too short" moments...crikey where would I start....let's just say "All Things Timmie"
Hugs Kath xxx

Carol said...

Hi Kath, Hope you are well...by the sound of it you are on top form and I totally agree about the buttons!!! although I have a thing too about them being 'unfinished' or naked as you so rightly say :)
The box is one of the nicest I've seen, love the bright colours!

Hugs & Take Care,

Well....... the unclothed buttons look rather good on this one - though I do spy one or two that didn't escape getting dressed. Love the colours & no...... I think we'd be here all night if you tried to list those ingredients.
Have a good day.
