Hello Deskers!!  On my desk today we have...

an almost complete layout (hoping to blog later today) made from Cocoa Vanilla papers (I know we don't like loads of links on WOYWW posts but scrapbookers, check them out, they are new and are worth a minute or two of your time!)  Can you spot my WOYWW badge?  And there is an obscene amount of lace!!  I know I am a very lucky girl!

Most of it is 'short meters' of each new release.  I know this is not an ideal way to store it.  I know it will get tangled.  I know I will spend half an hour tutting.  I know I will spend half an hour untangling.  But it looks so pretty!!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you at your desk!


  1. Great job on your layout! And that lace looks positively delicious!!!

    Happy Crafting!

  2. It looks gorgeous and I agree about the tutting and tangling. I know this because I have recently spent two evenings untangling and sorting alternative accommodation for my ribbons. The foot high glass jar was just too much of a mess. But you've a tidier mindset than me, so try it and see how you go..worth it for the look! Love the look of the LO..would like to do some home scrapping myself actually...I consider this you telling me to get on with it!

  3. Oh pretty jar of lace and yes you will do all of the above but still look lovely in the jar mine are tangled in a drawer. Thank you for sharing. Happy WOYWW Anita #42

  4. The page looks great! love it. And yes, the lace is pretty that way :) Happy WOYWW. Shel#55

  5. Loving the jar with lace in it. I wrap my shorter bits of ribbon and lace round a dolly peg. Also hang some by clipping them with bulldog clips.

    Happy WOYWW

  6. Great job on the layout. Yes, I agree, the undoing of the mess is by far outdone by how gorgeous that lace looks in that jar. But I have to ask a question - CAN it be possible for a girl to have too much lace and ribbon???
    Take care. God bless.

  8. Lovely layouts your working on, Laura. Like you, I love lace, and have a pretty indecent collection myself lol! Thank you for your lovely comment - so glad you like my embroidery. Thank you especially for your prayers - they mean so much.

    Happy WOYWW,

  9. Loving that storage of the lace. What price beauty! the drawers- if it doesn't move, I color it!

  10. Your scrapbook layouts are both so cute and your jar of ribbons is very pretty. Yes, not ideal, but decorative, which is good in its own way.

    Thanks for your visit to my blog earlier and for the comments. :-)

    Happy creating and happy woyww,

  11. Wow, I could do some serious damage with that lovely vase of lace - how pretty is that? It really caught my eye, I can see it on bags, bunting, more bags etc etc! Lol. If you ever get bored with it, you know where to send it!!!
    Hugs, LLJ 20 xx

  12. yes you are right the lace looks so vibrant it is worth all the tutting later ! thanks for visiting Ali#21

  13. The lace does look yummy! However, I was oogling your washi tape. Some of those colors are really fab.

  14. Oh yes, it does look pretty! I think that outweighs the annoyance of the tangling :)
    Thanks for visiting earlier, sorry I am so late this week.

  15. Happy WOYWW and The page looks great! love it.
    Thanks for stopping bu earlier!

  16. I am officially in love with your desk! x

  17. Loving your layout. I am always in awe at those that can do these nice clean layouts with clean white space (I tend to throw too much at mine and inky hands means no white space for me!).
    Thanks for visiting my desk already

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
