Morning all, my desk this morning, it's a bit dark in there but I managed to get it photographed none the less. 

So why am I sharing this well the very lovely Julia over at the Stamping Ground helps us share our desks on What's on Your Workstation Wednesday 

For more information - head over here - loads of links to check out with fabulous desk 

More glue was needed at the weekend as you can see - in fact the desk seems completely infiltrated with glue if I'm honest - hence the baby wipes! 

The paper pack top right is a new buy from last week, geometric design

Here is the other side which I managed to not capture in the first photo - as you will there is also the base for another one of those boxes

which is hiding under some brads

Here is the stack of paper

And a better but slightly blurrier close up of the mini book I'm making using the amazing instructions from A Trip Down memory Lane (link below to the blog post).

This is the book partly folded up 

And this is the back, there is still a lot of pages to cover with the paper and I've opted out of the fastener, but I love the book and it has proved really easy to put together!

So there you have it my desk in mid-production mode!


  1. am liking this a lot - great paper pack, that! Helen #2

  3. Loving that geometric paper you have - is some of it metallic, looks so. Now the book has me interested as I like making books so I think I need to follow the link and see how it is made. Ah well, another distraction!
    Thanks for sharing so much of your desk
    Hugs, Neet 12 xx

  4. The mini book is coming along wonderfully Virginia. I printed out the instructions the other day but still can't make up my mind about colours/papers etc. LOL

  5. That mini book is FANTASTIC - clever you, it looks very complicated to make. I adore those geometric papers - it's funny, patterns, maps and diagrams have always floated my boat, much more than pictorial stuff. I like the muted tones too, very pleasing :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 1 xx

  6. I think the geometric design complements the design of the book. Happy WOYWW, Vicky #9

  13. Good morning I can not wait to see the finished box you are making and oh how I love mini albums of any kind been making them for years myself and have had a few special orders wanting them made. I have never seen that paper before it looks really cool. And for the glue I never think you can have to much lol. I have two extra bins I can reach for when a bottle on my desk runs out. Have a fantastic creative week.Hugs ~Anne L#7
