what's on your workdesk? Wednesday . . .

(looking for the blog candy?--you can find it HERE!)


I just finished off this pair of tags, adding the
embellishments at the top--okay, it's true, I am
completely hooked on using those lightbulb shaped
safety pins (mine are from Altered Pages).


All of these stamps are from the Relish Reading plate
by Rogue Redhead Designs.


The tags fit in the pockets of this little book--rats, I forgot to
take a pic of the book with the tags pulled!!!

Either way, I'm linking this up with the Reader's Art Quest at the
brand new blogozine, Unruly Paper Arts--Inky Backgrounds. If you
haven't had the opportunity to check it out, consider this your
formal invitation to join in on the fun! Plus, these thoughtful
looking vintage images, they're perfect for the Favorite Vintage
Style challenge at Frilly and Funkie. A little frilly, a little funkie, yes?

So what's on my workdesk? (THANK YOU to the wonderful Julia,
for graciously hosting this every week.)

Not a whole lot of anything right now, in my tiny cleaned off
spot, and guess what? Everything has migrated back to the art
room from the living room, so there's only ONE workdesk.

To celebrate the occasion, and several others, I'm having
a little giveaway with some blog candy--you can find it HERE!

Wonderful images and I'm loving the color palette you used. The tags are terrific and when combined with the folder they make a sensational piece of work. Love the embellishing with the tulle and the seam binding too.

I'm thrilled that you joined in the fun with us for our first challenge over at Frilly and Funkie. Thank you so much for playing along and I hope you will be a regular with us!

Hugs,
Linda
