WOYWW 203 Messy Mo!

Hi Everyone,
Sping has finally arrived, the birds are building nests in our garden which is always a joy to see and some of the veg I planted weeks ago has finally started to pop up so all is well but, oh dear have just seen  the long term forcast for this weekend coming, back to cold miserable and wet.  To cheer us all up for now though we have a day full of inspiration looking around the desks of the world and see what everyone else is up to.  To join in the fun click here where you will find all the info. courtesy of our host Julia.
Now my desk this week Oh dear!! Messy Mo indeed. This was actually yesterday as I am out all day today and did not want to miss joining in with the desks so I cheated a bit hope you dont mind Julia:)

Not like me at all, messy desk and all unorganised.  I was putting together a couple of cards for a future workshop entitled Clocks and Cogs I bet you guessed that anyway with all these bits of die-cut clocks on the desk.   Apart from the dies I am using two Indigo blu stamps a cogs emboss folder with aluminium tape, metallic distress stains as my metallic distress paints are still en-route and just in the centre you can see a lovely tube of my minds eye washi tape blue collection. You just sort of get a sneak peek an the bottom left hand corner of one of the cards but all will be revealed at a later date when I have finished them.
For those who saw my desk last week, I finished off my April Tag and one or two commented on the heart and card I had on the back, so I have popped a couple of little piccie's  of them
all on here for you to have a better look. 

As usual I will get around as many desks as I can (please bare with me it usually takes me all week!). I will visit at least all who visit me and any one who's woyww number ends in the same as mine. Hope you all have a lovely day.

  25. I gave up on having a tidy craft studio years ago, so your desk just looks like home to me. Love your tag for the TH 2013 April Challenge. Did you use Salty Ocean Distress paint on your tag? That's my favourite colour, and I like how it smells too? Does your paint have different scents? I think mine do - everybody says I am nuts. I replied to your comment that you left on my blog - I was so stoked that you did - thanks again.

    1. Hi, yes I did use Salty Ocean on the tag, can't say I have had a smell of them all though to see if they are different:)

  26. Doesn't look so messy to ME! I would say 'enticing', 'interesting', something magical getting ready to happen. TFS
