It's Wednesday again!! I can't believe it :-) Time to look at the desks of friendly crafters around the world - it's truly addictive. Click on the WOYWW button in my sidebar, find out what its all about and join in.

Thank you for all the lovely comments last week. I'm sure there were one/two questions I should answer. I will have to pop back and look at the comments.

I  am rather late this week. I was out all day yesterday with friends and then came home and changed and went out again ( with same friends) - we went to an Indian restaurant and had a superb meal. Also out again today.

So to my desk.

Not terribly exciting is it - I have had a big tidy up. Last week I was making a few bits for my D.I.L. to take to a craft fair. After I had finished I had to clear up before starting working on makes for my class.

The Craft Fair was very quiet and although advertised as Vintage and Handmade Crafts it was more Vintage. Sarah sold a few of her things and one/two of mine but it was very quiet on the whole. We popped along with DS and the girls to give some support. 

Below are the things I made. Found lots of inspiration/directions from Pinterest. Adapted to make my own.

The little boxes above are filled with chocolate hearts.

Below are the cards I gave my granddaughters. There were chocolate heart lollies in the bags.

There are small ' angel' key charms in the little bags.

Bunnies and Chicks filled with mini eggs.

Little bags of hearts.

Finally my Valentine rose and heart from 'My Secret Admirer' - looks like DH's writing :-)

Below the card I made for DH. Who also cooked us a delightful dinner.

Hope you all had a good week. Will visit all who end in same number as me and hopefully a few extra. x

  3. I just love the things you made. Especially the chick and bunny boxes. What a shame they didn't sell. But as you say, it probably wasn't the right place as people were coming for other things.
    Thank you for visiting and for your kind words,
    Have a great week,
    God bless,

  4. Happy WOYWW. You have certainly been busy. So many wonderful creations. Ali x #43

  5. Your cards are Beautiful!! And your desk is much cleaner than mine! Is that TP I see on your desk? I have lately been keeping a roll on my desk and it comes in handy when I don't need a big piece of paper towel! Lucky you to have a husband who cooks Indian food! YUM! Thanks for visiting!

  6. What a lot of lovely makes you are showing us today. Love the cards and then the boxes etc that follow. All look very professional.
    Mmm... an admirer - he must be smitten if he sends a red rose.

  7. The cards are lovely, thanks for the inspiration and the visit to mine. Happy crafting, Angela x 34

  8. You are so clever, I love your cards and those bunny and chick boxes are just gorgeous. I'm hopeless with anything papery and gluey, wish I could do that. Such a shame about the fair. Have a great week, I'm going to have another look at the bunnies :)

  13. Loving all your beautiful cards and bags.

    If you want to tease your hubby, send yourself a Valentine card and just put a ? in it. You show it to your hubby indicating you know it's from him:) Wonder how long it would take before he's quizzing you on who could have sent it:)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy WOYWW

  16. Hello Anne. Goodness - you were SO busy. I'm sorry the fair didn't go too well, though, after all your hard work! hopefully you can use the items you made in another way... Thanks for visiting. Mrs D and I had lots of fun, thanks. It nearly didn't happen, as I had to call the Dr to John - so she had to come to me in the end - but we got up to lots of mess and mischief!! Managed to make a few cards in the chaos...
    Sorry it has taken all week to get here - computer issues.
    Take care. God bless.
