WOYWW 231

It's that time of the week again! A tour of all the fabby creative desks you could wish for... via the link at darling Julia's Stamping Ground.
This is my work desk, coffee stained papers in the foreground to make book pages, have started to stamp them up ready, and anyone that saw the strips from yesterday 
yes... these... and wondered what I was planning to do with them... 
If anyone wants to know how to get paper this colour and with the lovely crackle of aged olde worlde appearance then my tutorial is here.
they are now a little book.
which is part of the Flat Susan bookset I am making Neet... this ickle one is going to be a sign in book of names and blogs of all the lovely people who will have had FS as a guest by the time she finishes her world tour.  So I guess I had better get on and sort the rest of it out now too! LOL

  4. So THAT'S what those coffee stained papers were for! And I thought you were mojoless.

    Once again, I'm not playing in WOYWW this week, but stopped by to see your tutorial and what you were working on. Have a great Wednesday, dear friend.

  8. What a lovely idea and such a keepsake I am sure Neet is missing FS so much. I love the aged look of the pages and the stamped images upon them. Good for you but I do think you have quite some time yet to finish as she still has to come to Australia, she might even be here for the cricket test matches.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Happy WOYWW

  14. OOh! For me! Thank you so much.
    FS is zooming around America so it won't be long before she is wending her way to Oz.
    She is excited about that but not as excited as I am now about that little book. Thank you so much.
    Now off to look at the tute!
    Take care and thanks for your visit - I think I was still asleep when you called.
    Hugs, neet xx 22

  29. I've never heard of flat Susan... Heard of lazy Susan :P It's a gorgeous looking book. So unusual too.

    Thanks for stopping by Annette, I've seen a peek of how 'my' face is coming along on it's travels. You're right, brilliantly weird and wacky - can't wait for it to come home:-)
