Yes, my second What's on your Workdesk Wednesday. If you haven't already come across this you can find it here. It's great fun. I visited so many different desks last week. Can't say I made it to all of them, but I tried!

Anyway, here are a couple of shots of my desk as it is today:

This is the pile of books I am looking through at the moment

Here is a journal page in progress. Off to the right are some glossy papers I patterned last week and as you can see I've used one of them to do some punching. In the top right corner are the finished postcards for the swap going on over at Artists in Blogland (see the button in the sidebar). Those of you with sharp eyes and good memories will notice that one of the postcards is green whereas last week they were all blue. I didn't like the third one so ditched it and started again. 

For those of you who were interested last week, here are the shirts I made for hubby - all finished now - and samples of the alphabets I carved from the pile of erasers. I managed two alphabets, one set of  numbers, and still had some left to do some border-style stamps. What fun!

Looking forward to travelling the world via your desks when Wednesday arrives with the rest of you :)

  7. Gosh you have been so busy the shirts tags and journal book, I do love what you have done with the page.

  8. You are so clever. Those shirts look fab.
    I just cleared out my pile of magazines. Every couple of months I go through them and tear out what I think I will do someday and then then they get filed.
    Love the backgrounds too.
