I haven't been very organised this WOYWW - no photo taken last night so I could link up early.  There was nothing on my desk last night and I was pooped!  This week I've had an enormous clear out/sort/purge/reorganise.  It occurred to me this morning that last week I showed you Christmas cards that I was working on rather unenthusiastically... Did I really put off making Christmas cards to tidy?  That can't be true.  I procrastinate, sure, of course I do, but putting things off to tidy?!  That is just crazy!!  It's usually put tidying off to do anything else!!

Anyway today's desk is pretty much the same as last week.  Christmas cards in the making.  Then I was joined by a 'helper' and everything was hastily swept side so she could have a run around on the cutting mat.

A face as bright as the sun :)

Can anyone help me?  As I went to crop and add my name to these photos I discovered the edit button on the photo section of google+ has gone.  Is it just me or has anyone else discovered this?  Also, how do you add your name to your photos?  What programme do you edit them with?  And most importantly, is it easy?!

Have a good week lovely desk hoppers!

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
