Hi all :)

Happy What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!  

Yes it's that time for a blog hop...take a look at Julia Dunnit's blog to discover more about this fabulous opportunity to have a nosey round other peoples' desks...

Here's a peek at my desk area:

To the left is a Decopatch project I'm working on for a friend's birthday present.  As you can see, I'm half way through covering my HOME letters.  Having coated the papier mache letters with Gesso/white acrylic paint, i then glued on an assortment of torn papers using Decopatch Glossy Glue. I painted over the letters with Ultra matte Finishes Sealing Varnish No.3.

On the right of this is a New Home card surrounded by some of the materials and tools i used.  Here's a closer view of the card:
Beyond this card is my new Awesome Auntie mug and coaster which i received for my 40th birthday.  You might just be able to make out the scattering of '40' confetti which I am still finding 10 days later!!  Behind the mugs are 2 gorgeous handmade birthday cards that i was thrilled to receive.  There's no escaping my new era!  One card from my cats said 'You're not're just 21 with 19 years of experience'!!!  Another said '40 & still a bit naughty'!!!  I also loved the card that said quite simply 'Keep calm and just lie about your age'!!!

I was completely spoilt and had a fantastic day brimming with surprises :) 
I absolutely loved my birthday cake which was designed with the theme of 'My Favourite Things':
Thank you Anushka Rampling for making this glorious cake for me.  I didn't want to cut into it, too beautiful and special! But i can confirm that it tastes delicious!!

Thanks for taking the time to have a look at my desk.  Your comments are really appreciated.  Looking forward to hopping round your inspiring desks :) 

Happy crafting :)
