On my work desk this Wednesday is my new cutting mat!! Pretty eh? Chris bought if for my birthday and I hate to make it dirty and all cut up... it is from the new range by Ingvilde Bolme... and as you can see I also picked up some her inks... they are like teeny weeny irons!! :)
I managed to finish the second little book of secrets and it is now winging its way to the UK so hopefully by next week I will be able to show you them both.
On my desk you can see the makings of a birthday card... male cards are even more of a challenge to me than normal cards... so hopefully our friend Alister will like this one.
I have heat embossed the letters and clock gears and they look quite nice now... not too glitzy for a malae card, I hope!!
On my other desk - where the old mat now resides is Alister's birthday gift... which brings me to the subject of Pinterest. Anyone else spend hours pinning all and sundry items to their Pinterest boards and never actually get around to doing any of the stuff that is pinned? Don't get me wrong, I love Pinterest, I think it is a brilliant way to organise all the things you take a fancy to and to be able to go back and find them without delving into your computer history.... but I pin and I pin and I pin... I never actually do any of the stuff!! So my resolution for this year is to work through my boards and actually try some of the ideas and tutorials... which is why Alister's gift is wrapped in brown paper and has popsicles/lollipop sticks on it... I have had the idea pinned for ages and never got around to trying it out... I quite like it!! :) Of course, it only works with rectangles and squares... wrapping round objects is always a nightmare and popsicle/lollipop sticks wouldn't really work.
Don't forget to pop over to Chief Inspector of Desks aka Julia for the linky list of noseyness!!
