WOYWW 24.3

I have to admit to still having things on the left of the desk that have been there for 3 weeks now! I've moved my altered Ikea drawers off the desk to give me more creative room, but it just means I can leave more on here LOL. I have my new Studio Calico Home Front papers all the way from USA - love love them and underneath some of the new Cosmo Cricket Material girl. On top are my newest grey collection of promarkers.
I am attempting to alter a Leane ellis design (sorry it is lovely but) to cover the hearts with Charles R Mackintosh type roses. I was having a go at doodling too - uhm started off ok then I went too far, just the same at school with colouring in....
At the back of the desk is the easter gift ready for my lovely neighbour.

Well you may have created some more space to be crafty in and it seems to have worked because that looks like a very productive desk in my opinion.

The gift bag looks very interesting too…….is that bunny ears I spy?

You were asking about my little photo studio.
I got it from this guy on ebay.

I did have a problem with one of the lights but they sent a replacement, on problem at all so I can recommend the service.

Nikki said...

You can never color to much or at least that's what my art teacher use to tell me you must add more ... might be the reason I can redo a canvas about 10 times lol
ohh at your new copics :)
hugs Nikki
