My DD in Germany made this novel piece of ice art for her garden, from an idea she saw in pinterest. Simple to make, it is so effective. Greenery, berries, leaves and a string (for hanging it) were added to water in a large plant pot saucer. It was then just left to freeze. No doubt it will last a long time as the temperature is consistently much colder than it is has been here in England.
Mind you from all reports it looks like we'll soon be having a spell cold enough for me to try this out!
Congratulations to, (and I'm first in line for an autograph from) our lovely, famous Julia, founder and instigator of What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday over at the Stamping Ground. Julia created this weekly Wednesday blog hop around the world's crafty desks, otherwise known as the Big Global Snoop, and she has been featured in this month's Craft Stamper magazine. I agree with, and quote from the article that her blog "is generally a mixed bag of craft loveliness, craft irreverence and day to day opinion"
Rock on Julia, we love you!
So here's my contribution for this week and there are so many more if you pop over to visit Julia and see for your self, just click RIGHT HERE!
Despite a full crafting week my main desk is staying tidy, which I am sure will bring gasps of utter amazement from so many who asked just how long it would last after my big New Year purge.
Ner, ner, ner ner ner!!!!
The sink area has been transformed ......
so now the taps are accessible and I can use the draining board for messy matters.
Just look below at how Eeeeek! it was last week....
Still not completely there so I've got confessions to make in the form of a file box overflowing with UMs waiting to be cleaned and filed.
These red files hold my cardstock and ribbon stash but I've still to move the stuff "filed" on the floor.
Quite a flow of crafting has been achieved in my place this week, some to be revealed soon and some in my previous post and I also managed to make another 3 scarf/shawlettes using time which would otherwise have been wasted. It is so satisfying to produce some gifts whilst TV watching or as a car passenger. My easy knitting goes everywhere with me!
My DH is having a gallstones operation so apologies incase I don't get around to visiting too many desks this week.
Have a good week and stay warm!
