WOYWW week 153

Good morning all.  Apologies for the absence last week.  Life is just taking over at the moment - not really sure where April went!!

So, here is my really messy desk today:
On my desk this week you can see a box full of gerbera that I have been making for a friend's wedding.  Next to that is a gorgeous new stamp set that I haven't had time to play with yet!!  To the right of this is the tag that I made for the Studio L3 challenge last week.

Not much creativity to share, I'm afraid.  Hoping to start getting back to my 'normal' self soon.  Pop across to Julia's for a nosey around everyone else's desks!

Thanks for looking.

    1. The gerbera is made from a Sizzix daisy die that have layered up to create a gerbera.

  8. Those gerberas are seriously impressive, Miriam. They may be from a die, but there is a lot of work involved in putting them together. Thank you for your visit this morning and your kind comments. Have a good week. xx Maggie #77

  15. Beautiful Gerberas, Miriam! I see you are another Really Useful Box fan! I've got 2 that size, full of pens and pencils. My aim is to completely stock my ARTHaven with RUBs one day lol!

    Your desk looks so familiar - you've got loads of the same things as me, so I felt quite at home!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog, and I'm glad you like the progress I've made so far on my pages. Keep an eye open to see how I get on with it!

    Happy WOYWW,
