What's On My Workdesk Wednesday...

Morning folks...woohoo it's Wednesday and time to play along with that worldwide phenomenon...yes it's WOYWW or Julia's place where lots of cool crafters pop in to share what they're up to in their crafty spaces so let's cut to the chase and I'll show you what's on my workdesk this morning....woohooo my "12 Tags of 2012" prize has arrived from another worldwide phenomenon...the fabulous Tim Holtz Team...big hugs and thank you to 2 of the nicest guys on the planet...the gorgeous Tim and Mario...they are always so generous...
I'm itching to get stuck into making a Tag Book with this fabulous MDF album I bought at The NEC from the lovely Rob aka MDF Man to hold all the technique tags from Tim's Creative Chemistry 101 online class...
but that's a project of mammoth proportions and today there are far more pressing issues that need attention...after being away for 5 days at the NEC and lots of cubbyhole crafty days prepping for "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" and other workshop stuff...the larder is well and truly Old Mother Hubbard bare so today is going to be a mega cook-a-thon kind of a day...stocking up the freezer for those "I just can't be bothered cooking days"...but it's not going to be easy....big girl knickers will be required to focus on the job in hand because temptation is everywhere...The Papeterie has just taken delivery of lots of the new Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Art Parts and Stamps and you know me...I have no willpower when it comes to fabulous crafty stuff...so how I could say NO when these gorgeous goodies demanded to come home with me on Saturday...
all entirely necessary you understand to kick start some ideas for my Altered Art "Art Parts Wendy Vecchi" Workshop at The Papeterie on 19th May...
so if you want to come along and make something similar to this...give Charlotte a call on 01224 802337 to book a place...places are limited so if you snooze you may well lose.
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

  28. Ooh lovely stuff Kath. I've read about the GJWHFun weekend and it was clearly as marvellous as you planned and hoped...big kudos to you gal. And I understand the need to re-stock and batch cook...otherwise the day is just a stop start thing and the stop always comes bang in the middle of your flow!
