What’s On My Desk Wednesday

Thank you so much for all your birthday wishes on Saturday, I thought I’d kept it under wraps, but it seems some people have been reading my profile! I had a very lovely day …. and some wonderful presents …. some of which have now found a home on my desk or in other spots in my craft room.
Jo Malone Candle
While I am crafting, I always have a scented candle burning, nothing posh ….. but oh my life …… now I have a Jo Malone candle for my desk, it smells divine ….. and all the posh bags and stuff that went with it made me go very girly …… I don’t do designer stuff, but just this once….  I will make a very gorgeous exception.
Also, while I am “fiddle farting” I’ve often got a bag of Maltesers on the go ……
Maltesers Dish
Well, now I have a beautiful mirrored dish to put them in, so much classier that the bag (or the box)!
I had some lovely craft stuff too. I really want to get into making some special pendants using Memory Frames and Memory Capsules, and now I have no excuse, though you may have to wait a little while to see the finished results, as it’s all a very new medium to me.  I was given some of the pendant trays that I’d asked about on this blog a few weeks ago …plus all the bits to go with them, I was very touched and thrilled.
And finally ….. my knitting has also found a new home in this lovely trugg, (another thing I have a passion for about!). Happy Days!

Aah, how lovely! Hehe...crafting is always better with some chocolate nearby...i have a slab of top deck chocolate on my desk too, :D.

And how nice about the candle! I have so many scented things (incense too) that are just lying around waiting to be used, i should just use 'em while i'm crafting! Good idea. :)

Lovely gifts Helen and it looks like you have loads to keep you busy.

Beautiful trug - I wanted one of those to display some of my minibooks but most of the garden centres round here only stock grotty plastic I got a basket instead.

Enjoy all your goodies.

WOW Helen! What a lot you got. **Happy birthday** for last Saturday. Please don't apologise for the triple show of cards. It just shows how different they can all be with the same idea. I for one love to view anything that you make. You are an inspiration to us all. TFS. ~Glen~
