Killing the myth!

It's What's on your Workdesk Wednesday-day today and up until now there has been very neat and tidy pictures of my work space and well thought through posts. Today the myth of Mummylade the tidy crafter is no more.

My desk also goes BOOM on occasions =)

Just a quicky

Going to a PTA meeting tonight but I wanted to post the award I got from Carly. Thank you so much hun, I'm honored!

So, here are the rules for the award:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Put the Award on my blog.
3. List 3 things I like about myself.
4. Post a picture I love.
5. Pass this award onto 5 other people.


So, three things I like about myself...

- I put my heart into things that I do
- I'm not afraid to sing or talk in public
- I have a contagious laughter

And a picture I love would have to be of my babies. An old picture since they are 9 and 19 now but loveable nontheless =).


And I want to pass the award on to five bloggers that in my heart have that little extra:

Susie
Anna-Carin
Brenda
Kamilla
Julia

Woohoo, Monday again! Time for a new challenge at Die Cut Dreams, this time with the theme Teddy Bears Birthday. I bet there will be loads of cute entries this week =).

I used this supercute stamp from Elzybells and made a monochrome cream card. I'm so upset that I'm almost out of this wonderful ribbon now cause I bought it from a shop that has gone out of business =(

Allsorts - plain and simple

Today it's Saturday and I have a whole day of crafting and chatting ahead of me. I'm going to a craft event with my best mate. But Saturday also means challenge at Allsorts and this week it's time for plain and simple. That's a bit tricky for me cause I tend to overdo whatever I do (shush now friends and work mates, don't nod in agreement) so my DT collegues really put me to shame on this one.

But I took a plain wooden frame, painted it with white acrylic paint and added some flowers and pearls. You can't really overdo a frame so it's almost cheating ;)

DCD - Sweet little girls

Morning,

this week at Die Cut Dreams the challenge is Sweet Little Girls. All the sweet little DT girls got images from Digital Delights to play with and I got this little cutie that I coloured with Frayed Burlap and Stormy Sky. I chose blue and brown to try to get away from the all-time-pink situation =). The heart tag is a stamp that I embossed and cut out.

Allsorts - Colours of Autumn

At Allsorts this week the challenge is to use the colours of Autumn.
I made October for my birthday calendar using a bunch of stamps (the boy is Greeting Farm, the apple is Magnolia and the fruitbowl is Whiff of Joy) and backing paper from a paper swap. If you're wondering whatever happened to September you're quite correct =). I haven't made a September, it sorta fell between the chairs...

WoyWW

Morning,
it really feels like I've neglected this for way too long but here goes What's on My Workdesk Wednesday again.

The answer is "loads" but only DT work so no peeking today. Instead I will show you the strawberry pyramid that I made.

Loads of sand and soil, thank Goodness for healthy dads to the rescue =). The plants look a bit sad right now but it's autumn so they are excused.

Allsorts - new beginnings and DCD Christmas - Tilda in pink

Morning,
this Saturday I have two projects for you. The first one is my DT work for Allsorts where the theme this week is New Beginnings.

I made a new cover for my school year calendar - the life line I can't function without ;). It's always tricky to make flat projects (if I put flowers and such on this it would be ruined since I put it in my bag and take it out several times a day)


And my next work is made for the DCD Christmas Club where I am guest designer this week. The theme is Christmas Tilda in Pink.

I've used a silver backing paper but that's always hard to show properly, a gorgeous Penny Black stamp, MS lace punch and letters from a Sizzix alphabet.


Other challenges:

Sukkersött - monochrome (top card)

Sir Stampalot - distressed (top card)

Just Magnolia monthly challenge - anything goes (bottom card)

free sentiments

Taking care of a coughing wee one today, hot honey water and Hanna Montana on the telly...
Thank goodness for the laptop ;), I look like a caring mom in the sofa beside the feverish little poor thing but I am in fact surfing around in blog land.

I made two sentiments that might come in handy one of these days and of course I'm sharing them.

Wow, commenting on last fortnight's challenge at Stampin For The Weekend was no walk in the park. The amount of entries made my fingers numb. So, let's see how many entries this challenge gets. Cause it's Shabby chic/vintage.

I took this small tin can, painted it with concrete grey acrylic paint and pimped it up with some MS punching and flowers. The flowers are totally covered with stickles but it's hard to see in the picture :).
I'm gonna store some seeds in it, seeds from my summer flowers that I can hopefully this way revive next summer ;).


Other challenges:

Papertake weekly - just the one

Wild Orchid challenge - make it sparkle
