What's on your work desk Wednesday (lost track of which number due to hols!)


Hello all, here I am back from my holidays in sunny (very sunny!) Norfolk. Actually I've already been back a week but with the heat last week I didn't really feel like doing much when I got in from work, hence no post from me for the last WOYWW.

The holiday was lovely, we stayed in a little cottage in a country village and did lots of cycling. We also went to the beach quite a bit too. Oh, and we ate loads of food, some of it a bit strange...here is a photo of some 'Iffits' (apparently this is Norfolk's answer to tapas). The delicacy on the right of the picture is pigs ears! Much nicer than they sound, honest (you really aren't convinced are you?!)



Anyway, back to my desk for this week. I've been having a bit of a penny black stickeroo fest this week. I've had them in my stash for a while and thought they would be perfect for 'Thank you teacher' cards to sell at work. I also made a cute good luck card with a colouful hedgehog and some bright papers, just deciding which challenges to enter it into now! The bright colours co-ordinate with my stripy box (which now holds my inkpads, you were right it was too small for my growing collection of rubber stamps which now occupy the various drawers in/on the desk!)



If you are wondering what this is all about, pop over to Julia's blog at the Stamping Ground and check it out.

Have a great week everyone, hopefully I'll get a bit more crafting and blogging done now the weather has gone a bit cooler!

Can't say pigs ears appeal, no. I will take your word for it lol. Love the shots of your desk.

Your desk is far more appealing than the pigs ears. Makes me SO glad I'm a vegetarian! Happy WOYWW.

Glad you had nice weather on your hols...it's not so nice here in Norfolk this week!!

Have to say I've never heard of 'iffits' and not sure I want to lol but as someone said above your workspace is a nice distraction from them!

Theres a challenge on the Pollycraft blog called 'Bright & Bold' which you could probly enter http://pollycraftchallengeblog.blogspot.com/2010/07/challenge-52-bold-bright.html

I thought that 'thing on the right' was a chicken carcass!

Hels Sheridan said...

Your desk looks fab,..certainly not a pig's ear... yuk, couldn't eat one of those I am afraid... mind you, what is porky scratchings...maybe the piggy's ears wouldn't be so bad after all ROFL

FlipSyde said...

I like those thin pull out drawers. I think it would be much more useful for storing paper than the large drawer I cram all of mine into. I bet I could find drawers like that at an office supply store - is that where you got those? Also, I love the food picture. Before I clicked it, I wondered, "now what is being made here?", after I saw it I knew: satisfaction.
