What's on your workdesk Wednesday???

Hello,
We meet again... at the mid-week mooch where you can check out droves of other crafty HQ's. Very interesting, intriguing and all thanks to Julia. So here is a rather grainy, quick piccy of my desk. Sorry was all a bit rush rush - just like my life at the mo...My last weekend before my hols is galloping towards me and I still have 3 full Design Team pieces to do. Major eeks...Anyway, what's occurring? I'm sorting out some cards for a sale... 

and there's a rather yummy, freshly donated heap of keys !


Just want to share a collage piece I made using square sections punch cut from vintage ads and photos. It is simply mounted on a book page and then onto card covered with polka-dot DP.
Loving the fun colour scheme and mix of black and white head shots. I tried to use a variety of colour, size and images, stamping just one word 'Vintage", which I am also starting to feel like. Don't forget it's the last week of July's inspiration challenge at My Mojo Monthly so if you would still like to join in, do hop on board. There are now 13 entries which is just great. Thank you!
Lots of you were curious about my sewing of last week, and so here she is. My altered apron...full-on girly flowery stuff to brighten up your day...see more here.

Not too much waffle today, as I have a crafty Dutch friend staying with me at the mo, and she wants to know everything about my kind of crafting... could be a long session.

So I'm checking out for now - Thanks so much for coming around and taking a peek. Will be seeing you soon too..

Elizabeth said...

Great post Sarah, love those keys - how lucky are you to be given them! Great collage too - another fab use for squares ... my mojo monthly card is still out as DH can't bear to put it away!!! I'm now thinking of making something similar to hang in our kitchen which he is in the process of redecorating. Never one to wear an apron, but I might be tempted to wear yours - so domestic goddess :) Elizabeth x #59
