woyww...1st anniversary :0)

Hello woywwers...today woyww has reached its one year anniversary. I think Ive now joined in about 5 times but have been watching for longer. So today here is some of my table...there is just far to much mess to show anymore as i opened up the other side of my table and having more space meant more stash had to fill it lol.
Julia set a little task to make something to pretty up your desk/table/workspace and here is my humble little ......TAG :0) Its not grand or useful but it is going to hang above my desk (...I'm now saving for one as I'm not moving for another year). Ive used my cute stamps and stamping up and memento ink, some primas and a jewel...kept this side very plain and simple.
Then i decided to do the other side. Used the same stamp set and have added some glossy accents to the flowers and stickles to the butterfly which is raised on some foam pads.


The pictures might not show it very well but i machine stitched the edges of the tag....and if you look below there is a new addition to my workspace....my sewing machine. Ive finally dragged it out of a cupboard and got it working. I'm not great at sewing with the machine but think if i practice who knows i might even end up with some straight lines.

Thanks for dropping by and don't forget to go visit Julia who started it all for a full list of woyww.
