WOYWW #182!  Wow... we're coming up on the end of the year and I'm going strong with posting to WOYWW. For the deets about WOYWW pop over to Julia's blog HERE.  And you're right, Julia, we are addicted and I treasure the new friends I've made along way!!!!

My desk is a bit of a mish mash...nothing productive at the moment. Just trying out some new to me techniques...faux leather using ink refresher and perfect pearls (thanks Neil for the post). Still haven't decided what direction to take the metal piece hiding off to the side (it will be a gift), a piece of wood covered in masking tape and gesso and the start of another clock (also a gift but no need to hide it as he doesn't use the Internet). Oh and I tried my hand at making some ATCs, the horses in the back and the butterfly hanging on the center divider.

So there you have pop on over to Julia's for the links and go cruising round the world to what all the peeps are doing. I am!




  1. Fab looking desk - all set up to play!
    Happy Wednesday,

  2. Lots of projects on the go... sounds like me - lots of things all at different stages! Happy WOYWW!

  3. Hi Nan. I love the metal piece that is hiding. It is too fab to be under that pile! Happy WOYWWW to you from Helen 37

  4. Hi Nan,

    It's nice having several different projects going at the same time. I always do that with my knitting - just in case I get bored!

    I really enjoyed making the altered tin. I hadn't done anything like that before and it was a blast.

    Thanks for visiting me already!
