So this is my desk today, on the left a pile of roses & leaves made of air dry clay & painted with cosmic shimmer watercolours. Hiding (not very well!) behind the spotty caddy is my latest DT project using the lovely Beautiful Shoes stamps from Katy Sue & some shrink plastic. And on my cutting mat the project that will use the clay flowers. 

And the WOYWW crop....oh my! (See Mondays post for details) What a great time was had by all. I didn't get much crafting done but had a ball just the same :-) Met lots of lovely deskers and brought home this lovely pile of goodies.....

And a close up of those gorgeous ATC's....

And finally...... The Mötley Crop Crew in all their glory :-)) (Thanks to Gordon Mr LLJ for the fab pics)

Thanks to Julia the keeper of the desks, and Lunch Lady Jan for a lovely day out, I will be linking to Julia's Stamping Ground and travelling the world of desks over the next few days 

PS - for those who asked about the HOTP layering tools you can find them here - there are 2 different sets imaginatively title set 1 and set 2!! 

thanks for stopping by

  10. Looks like the crop was great fun...maybe next year! Love the air dry clay flowers. Happy (late) WOYWW. Pam#9

  11. My life the clay flowers are teeny! Aren't you patient! Am utterly delighted that you enjoyed the Crop, it worries me that you gals over do it when you have mobility probs. Your DH was a star too, wish I'd had a chance to nab him and say hello!

  12. Hi Debs
    your flowers at the crop were so delicate. it was lovely to meet you at the crop and to think we only live a few miles from each other. I see I didn't swap an ATC with you I will save one for if and when we get together for a coffee .The best day would be Fridays as I don't work that day.
    thanks for sharing

    Enjoy the rest of the week! I'm just popping in to visit this week, so no no. for me. xxoo Darnell

  14. You have a lot of patience to do those tiny roses. Looks like such a fun day at the crop, I've seen lots of photos around the blogs. You received some beautiful goodies too.
    Have a great week.

  15. It was so great to meet you at the crop. I'd forgotten how wonderful it was to craft with other people. Those roses are amazing; I'm so impressed you made them yourself. Just brilliant.

    Take care and have a good week.
    Cheers, Rachel.

  16. A busy-looking desk of loveliness! Thanks for visiting me on WOYWW #209 - I'm terribly late once again! Best, Deb's Pen Pot WOYWW 216, #115
