Hello and welcome, visitors to Magpieheaven, where life is busy with my tutoring starting again and the cupboards are not bare exactly - but - a mystery picture for you: what are these?
They are dinky little models of what our cupboard doors will look like, evidence that they are an actual work in progress now!!! Kevin brought them over last Saturday evening and Mr Magpie forgot to tell me until last Monday. They measure 6 by 14 cm and I reckon they'd make a nice little diptych with some hinges on them! Last Sunday I left my unfinished kitchen behind me, spread my wings and fluttered by Ally Pally! I met some lovely crafters there and spent lots of money - ah well, it was my birthday treat! Since then I've been playing with my stash when I should have been reading 'King Lear' and 'Jane Eyre' for my tutoring! I loved the chipboard flowers on the Paper Artsy stand at Ally Pally; but my money ran out before I could buy any. I've been trying to improvise! I'll show you an idea I had - possibly for a Christmas decoration - in a minute. First I have to say if you want to know the meaning of this blogpost title and to join in with the best bloghop around hosted by the incomparable Julia Dunnit then click HERE and head over to The Stamping Ground. I will try to be brief, as I'm sure you'll all be leaping from blog to blog, eager to see other desks. I was lucky enough to get Happy Mail from dear Darnell on Tuesday! She took note of a comment I made on her blog about loving Moons with Faces and she sent me these beautifully stamped images to use! Thank You, Darnell for your generosity! I'll give them a good home! They are lovely!
Oh dear, not enough hours in a day! That reminds me I must get those wings into gear and visit some crafty blogs to see what's on their work benches today! Thank you so much for dropping by. It's always a pleasure to read your comments - they brighten up my day!
