Hey all,
Gosh I missed y'all last week! I'm back today with more goings on than you can shake a stick at! :)

Jewelry tools are out getting ready to make charms for the next swap over at Ink Stains with Roni.. There's rusting powder above the tools, the results are on the far left. Not bad but the pieces need to be reworked. I've taken apart a book I'm working on as I've decided I want to stain the skewers. There's stamp plates all cut and ready for cling mount.

And front and center is a beautiful ATC from Robyn. Oh I feel so bad, mine is sitting on the counter all ready for the mail. I'm so sorry Robyn, I haven't been able to get out.

So why am I showing you my messy desk? Pop over and see Julia at the Stamping Ground for all the deets and links to join in the world's biggest snoop.

Have a great week!

Celebrate today!

  9. My word, Nan - what a lot going on. Rusting fluid?? You mean you are deliberately rusting things?? Am I missing something here?
    Have a great week.

  10. You're right, we started to shake our stick but our furry arms became achy at all the projects!

    Wilbear says he will see you in the queue for his signed autobearography.

  11. I do love the look of rusted things, but as yet I've not tried the technique! It looks like you have a lovely supply there! The last lot of stamps I stuck onto Ez Mount I managed to stick huge chunks of hair to as well! Was that painful! Have fun this WOYWW! Julie Ann xx #42

  12. Hmm! Mounting stamps - a tedious task but worth it for the fun you will have once they're done! Chris77

  19. Ooh, love that eye you have on your desk. Now when are we going to see that skewer book?
    Hugs, Neet 113 (and thanks for the visit you made to me. I am so late!)

  20. I glad there's other people that craft rooms seem to 'trap' and you can't get out! (I sometimes can't get in too!!) Thank you for my snoop!! Happy late WOYWW! Have a crafty week!!

  21. So busy and creative...that's what I just love to see...
    I think I have to have a few things going on as I get about you?

    The charms are turning out great...I trust they will be rusty looking...great for grungy/Tim H styled and masculine cards!!!

  22. Nan as always you desk has interesting things on it. Now I am curious regarding this book, skewer book? you must share next time I think there is a few of us here that are curious.

    Sorry I am returning your visit so late, still working horrible hours.

    Belated WOYWW greetings.

  23. Sounds like you've got a lot on your plate Nan. Like the rusting thing you've got going on, much cheaper if you can make things like that rather than pay lots of money for TH stuff! Have a great weekend.

  24. That is a pretty ATC on your desk. In fact there are lots of interesting things here. I find this so fun to look at peoples work areas. Next week, I won't clean mine first, as it was boring! LOL Thanks for the peek at your workdesk. :)

  25. Look at all those juicy cogs and gears! I love Steampunk so much but can't exactly tell you just floats my boat!! And I've had the beading stuff out this week too, making handbag charms which I shall show next WOYWW. And. NO bunting, I promise ;-). Though I've just had another request for a personalised one again,,,,,,,
    Have a fab week and thanks for stopping by!!
    Hugs, LLJ 54 xx

  26. Belated Happy WOYWW. You have such a lovely, creative desk this week

  27. Hi Nan
    I hope your friend is recovering and I know what you mean about hospitals as I have been MIA due to being in hospital.
    I am looking forward to seeing what you do with all your lovely beads and I have been having a look at your rust as I have just bought this stuff.
    Have a great day today and a wonderful weekend
