Hi fellow desker's and crafty friends, I am pleased to report my desk is a tad tidier than last time you visited. Thanks to all of you who visited me here last week and commented. There were a few of you I didn't manage to reciprocate the visit to, and you shall be the first on my list a little later today.
Rod and I are enjoying our time alone this week, we had dinner out with friends last night. They are foster carers like ourselves with a boy the same age as 'A' so it was good to have a catch up and debrief a bit about the kids (compare notes so to speak....lol) as well as talk of other things.
This week I have been busy getting things ready for next month's edition of Unruly PaperArts, we are going Stencil Crazy for November so I have been following up on contributor articles, editing posts and the like. Being home alone means I have been avoiding the housework and spending lots of time playing with all my crafty stuff too.
Here's a few snapshots of my desk and my week.
I've been working with Christmas Stamps and Alcohol Inks for a couple of ATC Swaps, Stencils and Spray Mists for some upcoming Design Team stuff as well as my latest Quick and Easy Santa Card Kit for Altered Pages. You can see a glimpse of some of this in my middle photo above.
And just for fun! I've been playing with my Gelli Plate, and yesterday I finished my Summer Canvas. Today I have been creating some more ATCs and stuck a cutout of a photo of my eyes on a journal page I have been working on and off on.

So that's my desk this week, and what Wednesday is all about. I hope you all have a fabulously fun and creative week. For a sneak peak at more wonderful desks from around the world or to find out what I am on about head over to our host Julia's Blog here.
