A bit of a mess ... some clearing to do and then to decorate the paperbag lying at the front ... the one at the back is the first of these I made and is there for reference ... this one is going to be a Christmas theme ...

To the right of me this little lady is taking up far too much space and is about to be demoted to her blanket under my desk ...

If you want to know why I am exposing my desk to the world check out Julia's great blog and while you are about it check out some of the other interesting desktops.

Our Creative Corner

Another tag for Christmas ...

This one meets the requirements for Our Creative Corner challenge - Chipboard (tag is made from chipboard), Angel and Buttons.

Here's a tag I made for the challenge set by Linda Coughlan over at The Funkie Junkie. I haven't done all of these - this is tag 10 inspired by this post ...

I am also entering this in the Take a Word challenge - the word is Angels and I'm a day late ... and Hels Sunday Stamper Vintage challenge.

Fabric ATC

Just sharing a fabric ATC I made for a swap (actually I made nine!) ...

The background is made from strips of fabric and lace woven together (sorry I couldn't get a better photo) ... I've then added a fabric 'patch' with a stamped birdcage and a die cut bird made from 3 layers of card and patterned paper on the top. The little circle embellishments are a bit like brads - they have little spikes on the back that you can poke though the fabric - I have had them years!

Resurrecting this blog again ... it's not that I'm not creating, just that I am lazy about uploading :-)) Anyway I am inspired to join in Julia's blog 'hop' today ... you will find dozens of other desks to visit here ... most of them much more interesting than mine ...

Some finished ATCs for a swap and some background paper ready for another project.

Edit 22/11/12 - sorry the ATCs are a bit blurry and a bit distant - deliberate because they are meant to be a surprise BUT they will show up on here in the future when they are swapped out :-)) and YES I do use the flat iron to straighten stuff out - it is nice and small and heavy,
