What's on my work desk today?


It's Wednesday again so time to show and tell what's on my workdesk over at Stamping Ground's WOYWW .  I enjoyed having a snoop around eveyone's desks last week.  My desk is a bit different this week, with regards to its contents. 

 

My Tilda Stamp Club stamps have arrived and they are so lovely.  I can't wait to have a play with them.  There's also a Tilda I've just coloured and a stamp I used for my last card that I haven't put away yet.  There's also a Hobby Crafts leaflet to remind me that I must order my tickets for next month's show.



There's a jewellery making magazine that I was given on Monday that I've only managed to have a quick flick through but it looks great.  I keep buying the beads but I never really get round to making anything - I will One Day!  Also on my desk (aka dining table), but you can't see in the picture, is some of my floristry stuff.  Yes, my dining table is rather messy today!  I made two wreaths yesterday morning as it was my Aunt's funeral yesterday.  Floral funeral tribute are one of my favourite things that I make, it is just the reason why you are making them which is not the nice part.  I made a large heart wreath which was for Aunt from her two sisters:



And a closer up picture of the spray:


And this posy was what I made from my family:


Thanks for looking and I hope you've enjoyed your visit!

Oh your floristry is beautiful.
Have fun with your beads - ah jewellery - something I am scared to have a go at - in case I get into it!

Sorry about your aunt. But these wreaths are stunning. As someone who has worked with flowers, I know you did a great job. I was actually here earlier, but got that dreaded 503 error. Just came back to wish you a happy belated WOYWW (#2).
