What's on your workdesk Wednesday is here again!

It's one of those weeks again! Seems I take take 2 steps forward and three back, but what the heck! It is sunny outside, and the garden beckons..but actually I have to go and look for a birthday present for the Packing Pixie, and like all men, he hasn't a clue what he would like, although the word "watch" keeps coming up! I feel a trip to T K Maxx coming on..mind you there is a Hobbycraft round the corner, and Maxx's always have the most wonderful boxes in store...lol
Anyway on my desk today is a new toy.. an electric Big Shot, and it arrived yesterday, and was set up this morning, and oh life is so easy now! No turning of the handle, no humphing and grunting to get it all through! Love it! ( if you would like one, email me as I will do them on special order)
 My normal desk,( the one with the mess, push it back, pull it forward, can't find it ) desk has a bunch of beads on it ( bought this week from Punky Pins,on the advice of my DD) and I have yet to go through them, so they are piled up ready to be sorted into a box or bottles depending on how I feel! The first aid tin is my bargain of the week, and was £2 in my local antique store, and contains the most gorgeous mother of pearl buttons! Was amazed when I found it, and grabbed it immediately.
Do pop over to Julia's to check out all the over WOYWW participants, and I will be round to see your workdesk later, as have a birthday card to make, and a present to find!
Hugs

ooh what a great find - the box with the buttons...

i know what you mean about the grunting - i have a cuttlebug which i think has contributed to some of my pain today - well, there no one else to blame - but i won't go rushing for the all singing all dancing electric big shot... just yet anyway.

Love the first adi tin, how fab :) The pink Inca stuff looks wonderful. I was thinking of getting the new Sizzix diecutter when it's launched but have been wondering instead about the Big Shot.
