WOYWW Virgin (and My Scrap Tiffany Layout)

~Good Morning (well technically afternoon),
~How is everyone today? I am sick.... boo!!!! I have an ear infection and sinus infection, as well as a fairly horrible cold - but I figured I would still play along with Julia's fabby group - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday's.........
~So if you're coming here from WOYWW, let me introduce myself a little - I'm Vicki, I'm from Scotland and if you don't already know I am Angie's (shozzy's) daughter in law to be!!! I've been scrapping for about 5 years, and I'm on the Design Team for Scrap Tiffany. Welcome to my BLOG!!!!!

~Before showing you what is on my workdesk, I'll show you a little bit of my crafty space (well our crafty space), this is my table-top tote:
~And yes that IS a christmas gift bag behind it....... haha, I haven't finished unpacking it completely yet. As you can also see, I have a pretty neat tote - I cannot stand mess, and I have to have it JUST the right way.
~Next up, I bought a black and white retro unit at the beginning of last year, and this is all the little bits that are on top of it:
~The 2 ducks were both altered by me, we have a couple of badge it's, the teddy was from my sister when I had swine flu, my other sister bought me the cow cookie jar, our friend Lori made the wooden J&V frame for Jay and myself - and the ducks on top represent us - can you guess which one I am??? Jay made the CD box at the christmas crop and that green basket was actually bought last easter in Paperchase - I fell in love!!! Oh and the wooden mannequin - Jay bought me that to alter, so I must get around to that sometime.
~My other favourite thing in our room is:
~Yup the paint collection, don't you just love it??????? I never have problems finding paint for any of my projects, and as a scrapper who LOVES paint, ink and well anything messy this little corner of the shelf is amazing.
~Anyway so what is on my workdesk??? This:
~This layout isn't nearly finished yet, and infact it isn't even stuck down. It's using Basic Grey Wisteria, and uses several hearts in the design. I haven't chosen a title yet, and I'm not really sure how I'm finishing it yet..... but I'll get there. My "little miss vintage" notebook was brought from Paperchase too - I use it to write all my ideas in and draw little sketches. You can also see my slice at the side of the photo - one of my favourite tools. And my little Morph is there too - he holds my paintbrushes at crops!!! So that's what is on my workdesk this week!!!!

~Lastly today, I used this sketch for my Scrap Tiffany project this week, from the fabulous Design Dollies:
~I turned it around, and this is what I came up with, the challenge from Scrap Tiffany was to use black and yellow (without scrapping bees):
~So that's it from me today, thanks for stopping by and I shall see you all soon.
~love, Vicki xxx

Julia Dunnit said...

Vicki - how gorgeous and splendid to meet you - I feel like you just popped your head round Angie's dining room door while we were all there for a cuppa. Your room is amazing..I would lke the paint, just for the colour effect, but would probably be a rare user. Your bits and bobs that have stories make me smile...be sure to be doing a LO just like your WOYWW entry, huh! And you LOs and blog in general - super lovely - you and Jay sure have the gift.

Charlie said...

Gee thanks for visiting. A scrapper and a hoarder just my kind of person. My scrapping has been on a hold though as cardmaking took over a bit - but I will get back to that too. Love all your little things on top of your cupboard - I have loads of gifts on display like that - great fun.

Rachel said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I'm so glad I tidied before you did! The paint's amazing; it's not just a craft supply, it's a decorative feature too!

Paula Gale said...

Hi Vicki - thank you for your visits and kind comments on my blog and for becoming a follower. You asked about my pending op - I have a tumor on my lung (which they say is non-malignent). I'm having sugery to remove it on 23rd so that what the reference is about. Thank you for your wishes.

I think that you and Angie have a fab space - I wouldn't mind coming to play with those paints - its like a shop in there - you're very lucky to have access to all that stuff.
