well I haven't joined in at WOYWW for ages and ages, and the way my desk looked this morning I wasn't planning to join in today either. My poor crafty desk has been used as a dumping ground over the last couple of weeks and there was no telling what all was on it.
So I took a bit of a brainstorm and had a tidy up - am planning a bit of a clear out too so look out for some candy soon.

And of course what happens when you have a nice tidy desk? well it just makes you want to start crafting again doesn't it? so I emptied out the contents of the latest Angel Crafts ribbon kit - "a touch of pink" so I could be inspired. Aren't all those pink ribbons and bits n bobs so mouthwateringly tempting? Couldn't resist covering those beautiful twiddly Tando Creative butterfly shapes with glamour dust. And have you spotted the wee machine I got from Santa?

sorry about the shockingly bad photo - no daylight and used my phone.

So if you fancy joining in the fun, hop on over to Julia's blog and have a nosey round everyone else's desks

Here's the Touch of Pink ribbon kit contents:

1 pack of Kaisercraft Rhinestones in soft pink, 
1 pack of Prima Annalee clear stamps, 
2 x Chipboard Butterflies from Tando Creative, 
3 x Butterflies from Jenni Bowlin, 
2 x Prima Blossoms, 
1m vertical pink stripe ribbon from May Arts, 
1m pink/white stripe ribbon from May Arts, 
1m pink sheer with white spots from May Arts, 
1m sheer flower ribbon from May Arts, 
1m Pale Pink Grosgrain from Berisfords, 
1m pink sheer from Berisfords, 
1m hot pink satin from Berisfords and 
1m pink satin from berisfords
All served in a pretty organza bag

I've not even ventured in my room for 4 weeks so my desk is.....empty! Not a thing on it and it looks so sadly neglected.
The ribbon kit looks fantastic, I must go and check it out.

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas

Welcome back to WOYWW. I spotted the sewing machine before anything else! I guess it's because I am not a pink person, so the white really caught my eye. Sorry I'm late getting here. I thought I had been here, but when I had to reboot, I lost track of where I was and now it's 2011 already. Took me a whole year to reach you (grin). See you again on Wednesday.
