Happy Wednesday everyone!
Today is a good day...FINALLY get all the children back into school! The high school my middle two attend has been rebuilt over the summer, so they went back a week later than usual. Peace and quiet reign supreme! Yay!
So.... my desk? This week is a bit of a puzzle for you... what on earth have I been making???
If you've seen some of the things I've been making recently it might be easier to figure out! Hmm..... stacks of buttons?
They're feet!!! Yep, lots of feet for a configurations box workshop on the horizon. Ten people, four feet for each box = lots and lots of buttons!!! They look fab when attached though, and its actually really relaxing glue gunning them all together!
Short and sweet from me today...will be round to see you all shortly!
Why not head over to Julias Place and have a wander around the craft desks of the world as well?!!
Love Trish xxx

  17. I love your workspace it looks so orderly! Great idea using the buttons to make feet. Its surprising how therapeutic can be when you have to do lots of the same thing . Good luck wwith the workshop look forward to seeing some results toni 146 x

  18. Love the use of buttons to make feet for those boxes! You have a great assembly line going there. Dani#16

  19. Whoa! TUBS of buttons. That is just crazy. Or maybe I am crazy because I want to run my fingers through it.

    It is always good to have extra feet on hand.

  20. Maybe I need to make some feet too shoot,all that I do in a day and there is still something left over! I love how you have lots of space to spread out! Tamika #162
