WOYWW and altered blocks

Hi all and can i just say thanks so much for all the lovely comments you leave,they are much appreciated and i love to pay a return visit.Am enjoying doing the world tour that is WOYWW where we open up our desks,craftrooms and reveal what we are all making/creating or just stroking.....lol
Anyway this is my desk as off last night and i know,its tidy even when i craft :)
Well today on my desk you can spot some lush papers which i used to decorate the blocks,blocks were originally yellow kiddies building blocks which i covered with gesso and acrylic paint and used chipboard letters.Can i just add the drink in the corner was to go with the blocks as part of a pressie and not my normal tipple......lol.Also some more blocks prepped,just need to decide what to do with them.The opened jar contains this and its fab.My distress inks are in the background,along with a beaded web coaster and my ottlite lamp.The silver case contains my promarkers and there are stamps in the clear boxes.
And these are the finished blocks parcelled up in a box i made with a acetate window.

Right off to link up over at Julia's if the post is up,if not will link from work and do my blog hopping later,have a good day and stay dry as its pouring here.x

  35. Great idea for blocks! I loved blocks as a kid and incorporated them with many other toys as well. Why not incorporate them in with my art? I chuckled at your silver case for Pro Markers, maybe yours is what inspired my latest marker purchase. I've been keeping an eye on the various desks for Copic marker storage ideas since my markers outgrew my basket. I ended up buying a black and silver container much like yours. Mine has a clasp with a small tumbler lock. The lock was purely extra, I don't think I really need to lock my markers up against marauding cats, but one never knows.
