What's On Your Workdesk? Week 149

Hello WOYWWers and Bloggers everywhere -
hope you all had a lovely Easter.

This post is going to be very short as there isn't much on my
workdesk in the way of crafting projects.  I haven't done any
crafting for a couple of weeks and this last week have been
enjoying the Easter break with family.

My lovely husband surprised me with the above goodies.
He told me he had an Easter egg for me, but he presented
it wrapped up and it wasn't at all egg shaped!
It's a beautiful butterfly tote bag from the Tim Holtz
District Market range.  I had bought one myself from QVC
a while back but the stitching became unravelled inside 
so I sent it back and they had no more in stock.

He also gave me some Pan Pastels ... he was asking me about
them a few weeks ago (he likes to keep up to date with craft products -
 well, that is all I talk about most of the time!)
 and I told him not to buy any as I have far too much stuff as it is,
 but he never listens (thank goodness - lol) 

I don't like bragging usually, but thought I'd share this with you
as I've nothing else to show at the moment.
My altered book is currently languishing at the corner of my desk
but as soon as I get properly back into my craft room,
it's first on my list of things to do!

That's not strictly correct, the first thing will be to 
catch up on my blogging friends and visit some WOYWW desks!

If you don't know what WOYWW is go to Julia's blog
and all will be explained! 

Thanks for looking and I'll be sure to come and visit you too xx

Hello SSD...I thought you have been rather quiet of late. How wonderful of your husband to get you lovely supplies you use. He is very thoughtful. I have spent most of my rainy dreary day cleaning my work table of piles of stuff...I don't even know how they accumulate! Feels good to find a space to work in when I do feel like getting creative. Blissful creating SSD...

Terry said...

Now you have a sweet husband! What a lovely surprise, even though you have an abundance of goods! Ha!Ha! Have a great evening!

Ann B said...

Wow, what a husband, not only fab presents but he talks craft as well. I would hold on to that one if I were you.
Love the bag - didn't think they were making any more of those - are you going to colour in the butterflies?

Managed around 50 or so desks yesterday so trying to get round a few more this afternoon.

BJ said...

Oh you lucky thing with the replacement bag from your DH. I had to send back the Wordplay die I also got from QVC as it didn't cut all the letters and I am STILL on the waitlist!!! Doubt my DH would even think to get me one if QVC don't come up trumps. BJ#42

Jester said...

I spy Tim's new book there too! Mine arrived today.
Lucky you - such a generous hubbie - the bag is fab! I look forward to seeing how you use the Pan Pastels.

Neet said...

What a lovely DH you have - what wonderful gifts. I am so envious on both accounts - the bag and the pastels.
Hope you enjoy them both and get much pleasure from using them.
Hugs, Neet #10

Beautiful bag, have looked at these a couple of times but just can't justify it! I have not tried pan pastels, let me know how you get on with them:)

I've been wondering what Pan Pastels are, do you think they'll be the next big thing like Promarkers? :)xx
