what's on your work desk wednesday

I thought you may like to see Paul's finished (part 1 of 3) Roman Soldiers.
Here is a wider shot of his desk, he has started undercoating the next lot. For those of you whom asked our desks are at a right angle I am under the window and he is along the wall to the right of me (I have my bookcase with all my embellishments and punches on to the left.

And here is my desk. The new stamps were an early birthday gift of my good blogging friend Heidi, the flowers and brads you can see are all autumn colours. There is a list of all the challenges, which I write down and take upstairs with me. The distressed ink is my favourite at the moment for edging papers with. The dark green ribbon was from Stamp and Create (also Lacey sells the Sarah Kay's)

If you are looking fo rmy ABC Card the glue dried terribly blotchy so I plan to do another one, have put the awful one on ABC rather than leave a blank space but it will be replaced as soon as I can get in my craft room tonight!!!!

I promise to visit more tables this week, this week has been hectic with the boys off school xxx

How nice that your desks are next to each other! My craft room is downstairs, my husband's office is on another floor- sometimes it gets lonely! Patsy

And gosh, do you sit at your desks at the same time and keep eachother company whilst doing your own things? I would LOVE that! I suppose being in charge of armies makes you tidy, huh...al those legions!

Katie said...

Fabulous soldiers! How cool that your desks are side by side!

You know what they say, the couple that play (maybe that should be craft) together stay together. It must take infinite patience to make all those soldiers. You are so lucky to have a friend who buys you stamps! Elizabeth #51
