WOYWW 716: Nothing To Declare

 A quick preprepared desk share today as I got this ready on Monday morning before the second cataract operation.  Please visit more interesting desks than mine at Stamping Ground.

Nothing on the desk as I won't be crafting for a few days and have already lowered my chair to near eye level to reduce bending forward once I start crafting again.
I also got a couple of days ahead with my #dailydrawing2023 as well. 
Here is the card I made with the stamps on my desk last week.
Will let you know next week how things went.  Not sure if I will be doing much commenting but will try and visit.  Stay safe and Happy WOYWW.

One Layer Diver Card

I decided that it was time to use a stamp set from Clarity Crafts that I have had for a while and never used so went ahead and made this card using two of the four stamps.

Two Little Birdies

 I finally got round to using the Clarity Crafts New Design Club die from September 2020 and decided to follow a suggestion on the accompanying project sheet, combining it with the first ever die from the club.

Still Going Strong; Daily Drawing Round Up

I am still going strong with my #dailydrawing2023 challenge.  The Seawhite journals I am using have enough pages for half a year each time.  Here are my drawings for the first half of February.

The prompts I am using.
I found an image which sums this up perfectly.
From my own imagination.
Copied from an image online but I didn't follow the tutorial (see HERE).
All my own ideas.
My Faber-Castell Polychromos.
A quickie!
And another one.
Another quick and easy drawing.
My crafting home.
Another quickie.
A quick sketch from life.
Seemed an obvious choice as I am from the UK.

WOYWW 715: Countdown

 Happy WOYWW and welcome to the weekly sharing of desks with Julia at Stamping Ground.

My desk shows some stamps that I am planning to use to make a card.  I have decided to use any stamps that have not yet had an outing and the swimmers fit the bill.  Pop back next week to see the final result.
My #dailydrawing2023 journal is still going strong.  Hoping that I won't need to take a break after my op next week but will catch up one way or another.  Stay safe everyone.

WOYWW 714: Next Op Booked

 Welcome to the weekly desk share as part of WOYWW - please visit Julia's Stamping Ground for further explanation.

I was working on a tag yesterday with a love/heart theme so snatched a quick photo.

My second cataract operation is booked for the Monday of half term (20th February) so as to avoid time off work.  The optician was really happy with the results of the first one when I went on Saturday so here's hoping the second one is equally successful.  I should be back to driving in time to take my car in for its MOT lol.

The latest drawings are still happening.  We should have had a parents' evening tonight and tomorrow but they have been cancelled so not sure what the meeting will be if there is one after school this evening.  Looking forward to visiting desks later.  Stay safe and Happy WOYWW.
