What's On Your Workdesk #146

Hello there,

From a very windy and totally not nice day, only conselation, lol, is that we have a public holiday today, so got some stuff done, not much i am afraid, lacking the energy................hehehehe

It's time for a WOW over at Stamping Ground and i thought i might as well share, lol, how in total chaos it is at the mo, serious!!!!
There are three pic's, different work desk's, the one i am busy putting the candy's together that were won on my blog, the other still a mess from my last hurried creation and the third where my cutting mat is, all the poly bags and scraps of paper, yikes, when i look at this, i realize how much i still have to do, so better get on with it............ hehehehe
You will always see my scissors and some ink pads lying around, have a different scissor for paper/tape/ribbon and fussy cutting and then some spares, lol, cannot run out seeing that i don 't have any machines to cut, all done by hand!!
And then, what is also prominent is my little drawers, have to have everything sorted and on it's own, just my way i suppose............:))
Ok here goes, hope you don't fall over from shock, lol lol

Hope your system were able to absorb this shock,lol, thanks for stopping by...........:))

A new challenge started over at Squigglfly and this one is so much fun, add a handmade flower to your creation....
Now it can be handcut, like i did, or cut with a machine or any other handcrafted flower, love this cause it brings the creativity out in one, cannot wait to see what you make..........:)))

I used an image by Fawn Palmer called Chi Faith, love these images, you can adapt to what you need it for, there is quite a few of these in the SHOP, shop mosey on over and have a look see!!

I used some tissue paper and cut out a few hearts, then attached them together with a brad, scrunged them up a bit, lastly used some Dazzle spray, think it looks nice, hope you do too!!
