WOYWW

Hello............. I'm sorry for being awol for a couple of weeks life has a habit of just getting in the way of crafting sometimes! ......

To say sorry I've got a little treat that I've tagged onto my workspace but please feel free to pass on by! I wanted to share with you a great tutorial I have found...

I am not sure about sharing my first shot taken without any tidying up what so ever but I'm sure I'll get over the shame! hehe.... it's lovely seeing nice tidy desks but what about the nitty gritty? well, here's mine... (hides in shame!)

My desk last night!

I was lucky enough to be invited onto a DT & here's the start of my next project for them!


My desk this morning waiting to post some Atc's to a very talented crafter in America. :)



Not sure if we are still doing these.... but, here is my full swing!!

Oh dear! I've spread out! onto my guest designers highchair!


Thanks for looking.xx I hope to call by yours real soon. If you are new to WOYWW (can there be anyone left!) please pop over to our dear Julia's blog to see more scrummy yummy desks. (Proper desks!)

~♥~



A little treat or may be not!


I know nearly everyone has heard of Tim Holtz but have you heard of Tom Butt's .......



Tom is 38 months old! & loves nothing more (apart from Peppa Pig) than crafting!!

One of Tom's favourite things to make at the moment are flowers! Oh my mum would have been so chuffed!

Here is Tom hard at work..... having fun! Please see link afterwards to one awesome fabby crafters yummy blog!

Tom has already chosen his stamps & has been stamping on a sheet of A4 printer paper....


Time for a bit of punching out!


(sorry for blurdiness, it's impossible to get little ones to stop & pose - sometimes!)



then it's time to get inky!


nearly done!


still not sure I should be scrumpling my flowers.... :(


mustn't forget to put the lids back on Mum's ink pads...

Time for lots of yummy glitter..... & ..... ta daa......


now to ...... fasten the flowers altogether with a brad.....

Tom's finished flower......

Tom's little flower's came about after discovering Colleen's fabby blog Happy Little Art when Colleen appeared on Inspirational Tips, Techniques & Tutorials. Colleen really does make the yummiest flowers. :) & lots of other scrummy, yummy creations.

I'm sure it's okay for me to add a link here. Don't forget to say Hi...xx

Thank You again Colleen for your inspirational tutorial.XXX

Have a lovely day everyone..xx Finger crossed it's fine & sunny wherever you are..xx Thanks for calling today & a big, big Thank You if you get time to leave a comment. Hugs, Gez.xx

  14. Aw missed you and your washing machine! Tom made a wonderful scrummmmmy flower, I seem to be making those scrunched up ones, but other people's always look better, I'll take a tip from Tom and add more glitter. Your atc's look fabulous and well done on your DT spot, and...you crafting space isn't untidy at all! It's..actually very very tidy, with loads of things going on, love it!
