Its What's on your Workdesk Wednesday, so pop over to Julia's blog ( http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/2011/01/whats-on-your-workdesk-wednesday.html) to have a peek at what everybody else is busy with. You might be lucky and see a desk even messier than mine, even though I doubt that is possible.
At least I know one thing for sure today. I am not going to get this wrong, because its my desk and I know exactly who made the mess! I admit, it was all me and nobody else. You will see remnants of at least 4 different crafts lying around. There's the jewellery I made as Christmas presents, the giftcard holder for DD's birthday on the 28th of Dec, some knitting and of course the remnants of a last minute card for DH's best friend who's birthday is today.
In the background is a framed piece of art that somebody asked about. So here it is, the whole picture. It is a piece that my daughter did as part of her portfolio for her final year at school It actually has a long story attached to it and if you would like to hear the story one day, I will tell you. I decided to frame it with all her scrolls that she recieved in High school. We only included one of each for every sport and cultural activity, but she actually had 3 or 4 for each activity. Her blazer was covered in scrolls. Normally we don't actually make a big fuss of rewards in our family, because I try to teach my children that they should do things because they love it, and not because they will get rewarded for doing them, but because I want to be reminded of the story behind this drawing, I decided to frame it. It serves as a constant reminder of my child's resiliance, loyalty to team members and her ability to bounce back when many would just give up.
I will show you some of the results from the mess on my table tomorrow, because I have to run now, DH is shouting for some attention.
Have a great evening.
