Hello everyone!!  I am finally back on the net, my wonderful brother built my new computer to how I wanted it and came and set it up last weekend.  I am soooooo glad to have a decent computer again.  The last one just died about 3 weeks ago, but we had been nursing it along.  But all good now...I feel like I got my right arm back lol!!

What have all you gals and guys been up to?  I will be doing a lot of checking out later ;-).  Last weekend we had Craft Alive in town and I was demoing for the craft store that I do the Art Journal classes at.  It was a lot of fun and when I looked around...oh my... did I spend heaps!!  I was only supposed to do a demo for 2 hours on the 2nd day but for some reason it ended up being 3 hours...I couldn't believe it.  They say that times flies when you have fun...and it is true!! :-).

Here is my desk for this week starting the sample for the next class on the 11 April.  I got the idea from Finnabair...I just LOVE her work.

Not very interesting yet I know, but I will show you the finished samples next week.  The next photo are just some of the stash that I have bought in the last couple of months..

.....oh dear no wonder I can't save any money hehe.

The next photos are the samples that I did for the last Art Journal class on the 14 March, which was what was on my desk shot  in WOYWW 248.

Now off to see our lovely leader over at stampingground and check out some desks from across the world. Looking forward to seeing you all again!  Wishing you a wonderful  art/crafty week :-)
