What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 61

Happy Wednesday! And welcome to my workdesk! I have two finished cards laying upside down, the last thing I did was to add a small "Made by...". I've been between cards the last three Wednesdays!
There's also a finished cardigan on the sewing machine. This week I've actually been using my sewing machine for a card, YAY! Poor machine has been neglected for so long now. And my head is spinning around ideas with fabrics, cards and acrylics. Maybe I'll come up with something...

Here's a close up of my ribbon holder, fake bow easy and small bags for thread. I used the backing cardboard from paperstacks for the ribbon holders and for the fake bow easy, the later did also get a decor paper for a fancier look.

I'll make a cup of coffee and go snooping around some desks at Stamping Ground, join the fun you too! Julia has a fab hanging bin, I think I'll make one too even though all the smaller paper pieces always ends up at the floor. And from there they'll make their way to all rooms. I've heard hubby sigh and pick up small tiny gems from the kitchen floor. At least I'm not in for diamonds, crafty goodies and chocolate are enough for me!

Hugs
Maarit

  8. i have the same 'problem' - I want to incorporate fabrics more and more into my work - but am afraid my experimental techniques might be the downfall of my machine - I'm looking our for a cheap and basic model that I can trash if necessary finding out what works and what doesn't...

  17. Like the look of that Cardi M, how clever you are. And the small bin is perfect for tape peelings and bits that I would normally leve on the desk..and I have my old little empty instant tea tub inside it as a removable liner. Am very happy about it! And although everyone says the weighted part is too big - it's not - I lean on it when colouring!!

  36. Hello Marrit,
    I LOVE your sewing machine cover, I really really should make one for mine as it is covered in dust!

    What a beautiful blog you have, I smiled at your comment about struggling to colour red, Ive got he same problem with dark blue! Trying to get the proper jeans effect is impossible for me!

    Your wallpaper in your crafting space is fab, So very tropical!

    Your space is so very well organised, I think you would make a very good school teacher!
