WOYWW and my altered book

Well this week has zoomed by,just a few more days and its my time off for the easter holidays and i am looking forward to some serious craft time instead of the few minutes here and there, also pleased to report that my cold has finally gone, hurray :)  Anyway i am showing you my desk today as i have become a fan of the trend setter Julia from Stamping Ground who encourages everyone to reveal whats on their desks on a Wednesday no matter how tidy or messy they are! ( i am definately a tidy crafter......lol)
This is my desk at the moment or i should say as off late last night and you can see my altered book with its niche,been following the fab tutorials over at Elizabeths blog Altered book lover and really enjoying learning something new. My theme is my blog,nickname and its history. On my desk you can see various glues,acrylic paint (touch up a area on book) ink pads and my spider stamps and at the back my beaded spider coaster which a lovely friend Teresa got me from America.
This is my book before i covered the niche all clamped and waiting for the gel medium to dry propped up by my favourite drink. Anyway off to link up and have a nosey at some blogs before work. Thanks for popping in and i will return the favour,x

  14. Your altered book is coming along nicely Kay.
    I saw Elizabeth’s tutorial and was tempted by it but it’s so far out of my comfort zone that I’ve not succumbed and taken the plunge as yet.

    Thanks for stopping by this week.
    Happy Crafting!

  16. Hi Kay,

    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. I know I did the right thing but I have times of second guessing myself.

    Your desk looks nice and tidy and the altered book project looks interesting.

    Hugs,
    Kay

  18. What a fab idea to do a AB based on your blog! I might do one of those too! lol Well, after I finish the first one anyway! So glad to take a peek at your progress, have you linked it up on Elizabeth's blog yet? waving hi from my balcony in the hills of North Carolina :)

  20. Love the spidery spread in your altered book -- the silver ink is perfect against the black. I feel myself getting sucked into wanted to do one sometime. But it will have to be a seriously terrible book before I'll feel I can destroy it! (Thanks for visiting my blog.) Happy Wednesday from #152. :)

  21. Thanks for stopping by and yes, it is Julia! Duh!

    Your desk looks super busy.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow! That is quite impressive how you have the niche clamped within an inch of its life. I like how the book is coming along. A beaded spider coaster?! Cool! Although... not sure if that would encourage guests to use a coaster or run screaming.

  23. yup way too tidy... Although that's usually the way I prefer having my desk when I start projects. Thanks for the comments on my desk. Have fun with your altering the book.
    Have a great day

  24. Thanks for visiting my desk Kay. I wish my desk looked like yours, I am a messy crafter, and my hubby can't believe how much mess I make in the kitchen. Oh dear! Love your spider in the loo.

  26. What a fabulous subject for your AB - I hope we get to see some of the pages and read all about your name and how it originated.

  27. A very tidy crafting indeed. Love your book and glad you are feeling better. Roll on the holidays!
    Hugs Erika.

  28. I like the theme you have chosen and I don't mind spiders at all. We sometimes have massive ones scuttling across the carpet - just pick up our feet and ignore them. Good to see so many ABs on the go and watch everyone's progress.

  30. Now it's funny, I don't mind spiders, but webs give me the heebie-jeebies! LOL

    Wouldn't mind seeing a close up of that beaded coaster?

    Thanks for stopping by!

  32. Your AB is looking cool! I would be way to scared to try and make one of those. I haven't even had a go at a journal page yet! Thanks for visiting my desk and have a fab and creative week xx

  33. Kay, your altered book looks most intriguing! This is not something I have ever attempted. Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. The knitting is coming on apace now - it's something I can get on with while resting with my feet up - still feeling rough but hoping it will soon pass!

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  37. I must admit with being a newie to WOYWW I'm mystified by the altered books so will watch to see the finished article.
    Love all your spiders and cute Sam ;D

  38. That's a nice neat desk you have there Kay. I thought at first the niche in your AB was an unusual shape, but see from your main photo it's square. I did think about doing a different shape for mine, but in the end settled for a square.
