I did a bit of reorganizing on my desk, since today
is all about our desks on WOYWW, our lovely
Julia here host the best blog hop around, if you want
a look grab a cuppa and have a enjoy..
All this stuff was all over now I had a swivel I got at
Bible For Missions for $1, my favorite place to shop.
all of my tapes and glues fit perfectly on it :O)...
Oh and my trusty glue gun which I've had for over 12 yrs.
I have some granite pieces I use for weight, they come
from my BL cottage when he built the wall behind his wood stove. 

This is a large sand dollar one of my Aunts painted,
I come from a long line of artists on both sides of my
family, there is a lovely little rock holding it up from northern
Ont, where I come from:).

I have a tiny elf who keeps an eye on my while I create.


I was playing with some gesso (added some black
watercolor paint) and sequin waste and bubble wrap
it was for another project, I didn't use any so they are in
my scrap pile for future use..
Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful creative day..

I see I've actually missed a few posts, so I've had a fun visit seeing the winnings and goodies, especially that delicious package from Julie Ann which took my breath away! Lucky you! And that sand dollar is the biggest one I have ever seen and such a priceless family heirloom!!

Thanks for all your visits and loving comments, Dianne! Have a great week and Happy WOYWW!! Darnell #24

Great stuff on your desk! I was thrilled to see that sand dollar! I have one very similar, and I looked to see if it was your aunt's but the signatures are not the same. I love yours too!

I thoroughly enjoyed my tour round your desk, with so many beautiful things to look at. I have a couple of sand dollars I brought back from Florida many moons ago, so yours brought back lots of memories. Thank you for sharing your world with us. Have a good week. ,xx Maggie #10

Oh wow- I so need to go thrifting soon. My work table (actually my whole craft room lol) is such a huge mess right now. The sand dollar is so pretty- what a relaxing scene to look at. Love the elf!
