WOYWW 139



...well in the blink of an eye wednesday seems to have appeared again!...are the weeks getting faster or is it just me??...anyway I hope you've all had a wonderful week filled with love & laughter & lots of creative crafty moments...



...as you can see there's not much going on on my desk...I was given this wooden calender which I am going to attempt to alter...having never done this before and i'm a little worried so i'm going to keep it simple just in case I make a hash of it and then it'll be ruined...i'll keep you posted..

...right its over to Julia's at http:/stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ to take a peek at all the creative desks out there...

  2. Oh that looks like fun! Altering things can be fun...just go 'with the flow' if you screw it up it won't matter because you can alway paint over it and start again! :)

    Have fun and enjoy!

    Happy WOYWW

  24. that looks a good product to alter as a first piece, just go with the flow and as you say keep it simple, so often less is more and you have to know when to stop.
    I will have to pop back and see it finished

  27. I'm always nervous about altering things, I suppose that's why I don't do it very often! Good luck with yours, I'm sure it'll be lovely!
    Doing the woyww rounds, looks like it's gonna take a while!

  28. Good luck with the altering, I have loads of things I've collected in order to alter and haven't had a go at a single one! Like you, I'm concerned about ruining it!!
