I also wanted to incorporate a few color beads. Here is what my first try looks like:
I am delighted by the warm and friendly community of WOYWW bloggers. I love seeing the desks, getting to peek into such creative and interesting lives. I also appreciate each and every comment.
No desk is more fascinating than the true artist desk of the inventor of Workdesk Wednesday, Julia Dunnit. Julia has a lovely blog called Stamping Ground, where she shares some of her incredible stamp work.
