WOYWW?

Nothing to show on my desk today on account of two small people hogging my PC to play Plants vs Zombies (Highly addictive it is too) So we are zooming out to the kitchen to show my temporary workstation... introducing What's On Your Draining board WednesdaaaaaayI'm in the middle of graffiti-ing a canvas for my eldest's birthday on Sunday. (The big 13!) I'm also trying to loosely incorporate the Fiskarettes competition sketch.Loving the way the nail varnish is retaining it's 3D glossiness as it dries. And yes, that's my QVC card being using as a paint scraper. *gasp* Well, I think I've used it a grand total of once in the years I've had it, so might as well earn it's drawer space.

I'm way behind on my blogging and hopping with the girls being home from school so am looking forward to a day of catching up with everyone today. Get the kettles on, I'm on my way.

Thanks for stopping by and if you want to play along with the desk nosiness cult that is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday then visit Julia here and link up so we can all find you :)

I love using fingernail polish in my crafts and I'm glad to see someone else using it as well! Happy happies Carmen de Duck.

  33. Wow I got tired scrolling down to get to the comments box - LOL! Soooooooooooooo many comments! I'm loving that draining board look this morning, the canvas is gorgeous and she's going to love it! I also have a confession to make I also use my QVC card as a paint scraper LOL - although I lost it last week (not finally lost just temporarily lost amongst those piles of things all around me) so I had to go rummaging through my purse, no sooner had I started using 'replacement' scrapper than my QVC one turned up!

    Hope you're having a good Thursday - thinking about you today - fingers and toes crossed

    Hugs
