What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Look at what I won!

  

Here is my desk this morning (I admit I used the push back method to clear up some space!)   I recently won a very generous box of goodies from Lulu, who had her 100th post giveaway...

 

Here are all the goodies before I put them away...

 On my desk is the lovely card she sent...

and the basket of tins to alter, gesso, decoupage tissues, a mini album, and some glitter...


One of the things Lulu sent me was a little "Anglicko Český" dictionary with some pages taken out, all ready to be made into an altered book. I was so inspired (and I remembered the project in Stamping Mathilda) that I started on it right away...


Here is the page where I found the word "anděl" for angel and "amen" for ...well, amen!  I am having such fun with this project because even with a few spare minutes I can work on it, looking for words and images and even learning a bit of "Český".  Since I just visited the Czech Republic (Prague) last month, it will make a nice memento of our visit there.

Lulu has some interesting projects and tutorials in her blog and also joins What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday sometimes. I hope you can drop by her blog and say hi.  Unfortunately, the internet connection at home is not working these days so I have been able to visit only a few desks this week.  Hopefully I will be able to visit more this week.  Thank you for dropping by and leaving me such encouraging comments!  Drop by the other desks in the What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday list for other projects and storage solutions or even just to feel better that yours is not the only messy desk around!

Holy cow, Peggy! I'm really impressed with all you got. I never win anything, but I don't enter any giveaways that put you through hoops. So glad you won. I'm wondering what the art chips are, as well as the art chip tools.
