Happy desk-hop day! Preparing for a day of celebration tomorrow, finally doing Turkey Day on the actual day. Must be the first time in years with the whole family in the same place. Not the extended family, mind, but at least our small nuclear one. We have a meal, a day with no work, a family film and some board games – relaxing and enjoying time together. Bliss.
My desk has my main birthday gift on it, a 12×12 gel plate. What fun that will be to play with. I dithered about getting the new A4 size, but really, I can mask of the unneeded part to achieve the same thing so going big was the best plan for me.
I shuffled stuff about to reveal better the things there. First is an insert and some possible cover choices for another monthly journal for my Traveler’s Notebook – I love the pink one and considering it for December. Can you see the No. 12 there? Not very traditionally festive, but I like it.
also playing with creating a stencil from a die cut, extending the area. I use one I cut previously a lot and really like it, but I wanted a bigger one. I think it will work. You can barely see the join!
And I did TRY to get a decent cat photo but she was pouncing on a toy that I used to tempt her into my office. Dang they are tricky to photo unless they are sleeping LOL! A bit blurry but still quite cute.
I have to sneak in a photo of my birthday gifties from the lovely Tracy. I am simply blown away by what a wonderful community we have here on WOYWW. A card would have been sublime, but a notebook? and a calendar full of the most gorgeous illustrations? AND a stamp set? Even the envelope is stunning. All those words to say I’m speechless LOL! WOYWW folk will know her blog for the whimsy, the colour, the emojis and the little drawings that flow from her pen or pencil like water from a tap. If you’ve never been, do treat yourself and pop round!
Have a fantastic WOYWW day desk hopping – I know I will, because tomorrow I plan to not touch my keyboard at all if I can help it!
