WOYWW #206 - Décopatch and more...

Oh to my desk this week for WOYWW - lots of little projects too see.

I took prompt delivery of my new décopatch items and papers from DécopatchMe. The Pensive Cat and a little Chest of Drawers. Can't wait to get going on them.



Also I drilled a hole in a wooden spoon which I'm going to décopatch too. Woman at work in workshop, mind your fingers!

So - yes, I have gone décopatch MAD since Craft club last week where I first did my initials "BJ" and since then a little box.










At another craft club we did rosettes and I made 6 cards and an ATC from them. Earlier in the week I made a CD cover mini-book. Lastly my Craft Barn Alpha Challenge piece. Try finding a special day beginning with "K" - not easy!













So pop along to Julia's place to join the WOYWW fun this week, and visit desks all over the world.

You must have posted early. I saw this pop up on my sidebar. I finally sat down to my computer for more than two minutes, and had a chance to look back at a few of the things you've been making lately. Sorry I haven't been around.

Kissing Friday works for ME. And those lips are delightful. I really like that color combination, too.

No number yet, so I'll just say hi and be on my way (grin).

Sorry!!!!! What I hate is that you cannot undo your link. I was aiming to delete the link and add todays link, next thing I know it's darn well gone and posted it and you can't undo it. So, I'm actually really number 7 and you are number one!!!!!!! Hope you have a good day anyway,

ANNETTE HUSBAND said...

Elizabeth said...

Hi BJ, the real #1 this week due to Neil's blip ... couldn't sleep, huh! Your desk is super colourful this week and I love the projects you've been working on. Saw C&Cs programme on decopatch and think I'm going to have a go at that some time. I'm well impressed at 'woman in the workshop' - what with you and Julia both turning to wood, I think there's a seismic shift ahead :)) Have a great day. Elizabeth x #37

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I love your first picture today..all the colours look so bright and cheerful! The purples are gorgeous...I'm on a real purple patch at the moment..have bought some new tops, all of which feature purple in there somewhere!
The deco patch looks fun..is it quite quick to build up the layers?
Hugs, LLJ 29 xxx

Darnell J Knauss said...

Oh, my word, BJ, I feel like a sloth after reading all that you've accomplished this week! Wow! Love it all and BTW, "kissing" is a super "K" word!! Have a wonderful week! Darnell #37

Julia Dunnit said...

I'm loving your latest addiction..there's only one shop round here that sels a selection of the papers and I'm always put off by her choice..and the price. Your initials look fab, and my word, it's turned you into a prolific crafter! And you get No 1 slot after all because Neil's link was incorrect and he asked me to remove it! Good luck at the dentist - it will be fine. Don't forget to breathe!

Helen said...

You really are addicted aren't you... hope the dentist is ok (I share your fears) if you want to pop round you are more than welcome... excuse the mess!

Annie said...

Wow!! BJ your desk is amazing with lots of gorgeous goodies. Your projects are amazing.
Have a wonderful WOYWW. ( already a follower )
