What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Giveaway Blessings, Etc.

Hello, blog friends, here is my desk this morning...


I have been meaning to write a post about our visit to the Aeta community, where they gave us thank you gifts of their handmade necklaces made of  beads recycled from foil packaging...


I've been meaning to write a post about some earring giveaways I won...

The pair on the left is from Krishenka  and is made of recycled tshirts and sterling silver (the shop The Flower Press is where they are from).  So unusual and nice and light to wear.  The pair on the right is an OWOH prize I won from GraceBeading.  It has Red Paua shell centers and they are embellished with various glass beads and a Swarovski bead accent in each earring.  Such exquisite beadwork!  (Her pictures are so much nicer.)

I've also been meaning to write about how my Lenten ATC journal is coming along...
Well, obviously, I didn't get to write any of these posts.  The week has gone by so quickly and it seems like if not for Wednesdays and our WOYWW link party, I wouldn't get to post on my blog.  I hardly got to visit the desks last week since I was either out of the house or my internet connection wasn't cooperating.

My hubby had some foreign visitors last week and one of them gave us a box of pineapple cakes.  Here is the brochure that I kept for inspiration.  I love the colors of the graphics!


Next week, I'm sure the box that holds the pineapple cakes will be on my desk.  It has the same colorful graphics on it.

For more desks to visit or to join in the fun of showing off your desk, hop on over to Julia's Stamping Ground!

And while you're blog hopping, why not drop by Tales from an OC Cottage and join the fantastic giveaway...


and Wipso and Twiglet's Big Celebration Follower's Draw for a chance to win a mystery parcel full of goodies by Sisters Crafty Creations, worth over £50!


And join Home and Heart's Giveaway for a lovely necklace...


Happy WOYWW, everyone!

Pretty Things said...

That's a rocking work desk and some GORGEOUS things there!

Rachel said...

Still loving your journal. And that they're ATCs makes them so doable. I've been struggling with my playing cards so I think I'm going to draw inspiration from your desk and try something new. I'm also loving your watercolour palette: it's like a work of art all by itself!

Thanks for sharing,
cheers, rachel 70
