It’s that time of the week again!  I do love my wednesday nosey around everyone’s desks. Go check out the wonderful Julia’s blog, The Stamping Ground for the list of everyone who is taking part this week.

What’s on my desk this week ?    Not much as I have not been doing anything crafty for a couple of days. After the half term last week I’ve had a few jobs that needed doing that I couldn’t really get done with the kids at home. My kitchen is now sparkling clean, all the cupboards have been sorted out and I’ve had a little re-arrange of things. All the beds have been stripped and aired, laundry all done and floors all mopped.  Domestic Bliss!   So that’s my efforts at housework done for another year . . .lol!!

So back to my desk. These two items arrived in the post on monday:


First up is ‘Passion’ my Blue Nose Bear. He was a limited edition one and I couldnt get him locally so I ordered him from the wonderful auction site we all know so well. He is No.68 in the collection, and yes, I have them all!  There are 4 new releases out this month too so Im going to be adding to the collection again soon.

Underneath Passion is my bumper bag of sponge brushes which I got from an art suppliers here in Ireland for a fab price of €2.50!  I’d seen them up in town for 80p each - £1.50 each so I was very please to find this bag of 25 for such a great price.  I need the brushes for the new class I signed up for on Big Picture Scrapbooking called Got Paint, so hopefully I’ll have some artwork to share with you later this week as the first class was issued last Thursday but I have not yet had the time to start. Now I have my brushes there’ll be no stopping me!

Thanks for stopping by today!
