What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday week 147

  
Another week another workdesk - well the same one,
but with different things on it!

I'm working on an altered book following the 
brilliant guidance and classes currently being given by

I'm on Lesson 4 and have just stuck together some 
of the pages with various different mediums,
and given each page a coat of white paint and distress inked the edges.
I'm hoping to get the rest of the lesson completed 
before the end of the week.



I was lucky enough to win a giveaway last week from
it's the lovely Spring felt basket and all that wonderful lace! 

If like me you like having a snoop around other desks,
go directly to 
you'll see why when you get there!

Have a great week, whatever you're up to
and enjoy the sun shine if you have it :)

I read your AB posts and what an adorable niche you've created! That's such a cool theme - I look forward to how you're going to explore it. I've got my pages glued together and tagged and am now starting to decorate them. Thanks for the visit - I look forward to seeing everyone's progress.

That packet of ribbon and lace looks interesting - good win!

I really want to do what you are doing with the book - I have all the bits, but I get too busy with making cards. I will go and have a look at Elizabeths blog cos I didn't realise she was doing the workshops.

Thanks for the snoop,
Happy WOYWW 147

Neet said...

Love those cards of lace - did you buy them like that.

I don't think I ever showed my room as it was when it was completed by the BSB as I didn't blog then. I might have shown some photos as I do have a few in an album. I really couldn't find them on my blog. If you are desperate to see email me and I will copy a couple to you. My button is on my side bar.
