What's on your Workdesk Wednesday?

06:14
My desk today is a mess again. I had a busy evening making some vulture's wings for my Son to wear in his School play this month. He is one of the vultures from the Jungle Book and needed some wings. A large cardboard box, some grey lining fabric, a glue gun, several burns and hours later and we have 2 wings which will have to do! They are not perfect but I think we will get away with them!

I received an interesting commission yesterday to make 2 matching albums telling the story of how two teenage sweethearts met to give to them as part of their Birthday presents. I did lots of rummaging through my stash for bits and pieces and papers to use and have settled on Elzybells stamps to help me tell the story.
I have a lot of them and think with some cutting sticking and a bit of altering, I can use them to illustrate the themes. I have a package of bits to take to my 'customer' to show and check I am going in the right direction. I made lots of cards this weekend, there is a pile of new Pollycraft cards on my tissue box which were made with new images yet to be released, they are a bit different and I know you are going to love them!
I hope you enjoy having a rummage around my desk, if you want to see more and maybe share a piccie of yours, please pop over to Julia's blog for more WOYWW fun!
Have a great Wednesday!
