It's 'What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday' time which gives me a good excuse to blog again. But hey, where's my desk?
I am sitting cross-legged on my new thick carpet, in front of a makeshift desk made from an Ikea Poang Footstool. Never thought it would serve this purpose. You'll see in the background my actual desk but hey, I'm quite happy sitting here.
And here's the card I made:
Not so bad, considering I left all my craft stash in Malta when I came to the UK and now have to make do with what I have (or rather not have). Imagine, I don't even have a paper trimmer here yet. Oh man, was it a challenge to cut that background paper with just a ruler, a mat and scissors? No stamps or distress inks at all, nothing baby, nada. Back to basics. Hence, my new found love for decoupage sheets and stickers, they're certainly a godsend for crafters still building their stash.
I'm lucky, I know, to be able to indulge in a hobby when people out there are just struggling to heat or even keep their homes. It's sad. Hence, let's remember that for some of us, our hobbies become our refuge from whatever life throws at us.
I haven't done this in a very long while but keep visiting, I'll be putting some stuff up for grabs in the coming weeks.
