Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

WOYWW #149

Ah - Here we are again, having a snoop about people's workdesks. Join the fun @ Julia's. Here's what I have made this week. My Art Journal is turning into more of a Tag Store! Every other double page I am sticking in the month's tags and writing a bit about them too. The ATC on the easel is made with the left over pieces of another tag I made for this month's UKPC SWAP. The theme for our SWAP is Easter/Spring colours including Buttons and Beads. Last but not least is my "GOTH" scrapbook page. We'd been chatting on UKPC about whether we wore make-up or not and I happened to mention I used to wear a bit when I was a goth. This sparked surprise as to why I hadn't scrapped any "Goth" photos but alas it had been before my scrapping days. Anyway, I took some photos of my photos and have since printed and scrapped them. Gosh that was some time ago..... I even used to wear the black lace on the page in my hair! Sigh..........  

OK - So not exactly on my desk but I couldn't resist sharing the bunny-egg which came in my Easter Flowers. Looks like he'd be easy to make. The felt for his feet is heart shaped but sadly no fluffy bunny tail.

Well that is me for this week - BJ

And why shouldn't your art journal turn into a tag holder for now..they are very art indeed, lovely. I think even as a goth you were tidy!

How does your bunny egg NOT have a fluffy tail?! I know you'll fix that when you make some of your own. I was punk girl myself but alas no photos of the mohawk exist. I love that you used the lace you wore in your hair on the page. Great tags! And love the ATC. I have a love-hate relationship with those myself.

Love the layout of your goth page. Also like the cute bunny. Thanks for visiting my blog this week, I agree that gifts of 'basic stuff' are always most welcome. Anne x

Becky said...

I like the idea of adding your tags into your art journal. My one time try at an art journal was a total flop!

sandee said...

and baby bunnies aren't called bunnies ( another thing I learned ) they are called "chicks"...totally weird I think! lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Jacqui said...

Thank you for visiting me BJ and glad you liked the tutorials (not done this before but some asked ...! so thought I would have a go. I love your tags and ATC and the layout is great too. I am too old for Goth pics but there may be the odd punk one around! Jacqui #111

Sherry Edwards said...

A Goth BJ, who would have knew! Your tags look, well, tagtastic!!

Sorry to hear you had to send your WordPlay die back to QVC. I bought that too and so far mine's OK, although I haven't used all the letters yet. Can you remember which letters wouldn't cut?

Thanks for visiting my desk this week :)
