Until this afternoon my desk looked exactly the same as last weeks photo.I have had a tidy up in the hope of making cards tomorrow. These weeks are just flying by!! I have not done any paper crafting since last week. On Wednesday last week we went to Leeds to see my eldest son and family. On Thursday evening my D.I.L. and I went out on Thursday evening. We first had lunch at a pub in the village aand then went to Yeadon Town Hall to watch The Full Monty- it was brilliant have not laughed so much for ages.
On Friday DH and I took the boys to school and collected them at 3.30 as my D.I.L. was at work. I managed to do quite a bit of knitting that day (as wll as to and from Leeds) so am ppeased with that.
We came home on Saturday as I went to The Cake Show at Telford on Sunday. Had a lovely day there with other ladies from the Sugarcraft Class I go to. I bought a few new goodies.
Yestrdayafternoon we had Ella my GD and then again this afternoon. She made a card for her sister who has a rash. She is ok but Ella asked to makee her a card and was so proud of it. I forgot to tke a photo.

Anyway to my desk - if you are looking in and have no idea why I am talking about and showing you my desk then lick on the WOYWW button at bottom of my blog.

Above you an see cards, ribbons and a box I have been experimenting with. to the right are some new stamps I bought last week from where I go to cadmaking classes. The ribbons I bought at the cake show.

To the right of my desk the ribbons again, some little boxes I want to have a play with, some more stamps and some papers. The gorgeous little fellow at the back is my grandson when he was a baby - he is nearly seven now. Thanks for looking - I am going to try to get on the list a bit soner than usual.

PS I am going to add some photos of some of the cakes/ exhibits from the cake show. Everything is made form cake/ sugar in some form or another. Amazing creations - I don't know if I am inspired or should give up. ( PLEASE NOTE NOT MY WORK )
