woyww - sprays and a box

My desk this week is littered with sprays and left over metal parts and tools.  The little box is slowly air drying in between sprays of colour.  My heat gun has broken. The plastic on/off switch broke in half and fell out. I am thinking of  buying a heat tool from the hardware store in the hope that it would be better made and hopefully last longer.  DH thinks they could be too heavy duty and mumbled something about burning the house down.  I can see his point.... I think the heavy duty heat guns are used for encaustic work and stripping paint.   Hoping there is a woyww out there that has researched the best heat guns around the globe.

On a completely different note ...

Have a great woyww.

woyww- box of metal and other things

An almost clean desk and a box of metal bits drying after a spray coat of gloss varnish.  I forgot to take a photo of the box I was decorating last week.  So this time I quickly took a snap of the new one I am playing with.  On the left is my little radio, getting on to 30 years old and still going strong.  The elastic band just keeps it all together.  

A close up of the lid,  heavily influenced by Finnabair.
 Rumour has it she may be back in Australia towards the end of the year..... Yay.  Seriously considering joining Facebook so that I can keep track of her class information. But the thought of Facebook puts an end to that idea.  I will rely on well informed scrappers to let me know when she is ready to take bookings. 

Finally a few lemons for my DH

and a chicken for no reason at all.

Have a lovely and creative woyww.

woyww - metal bits

This week I actually have a photo of the desk and no pears near the desk!  What you see is a collection of metal bits and the small box I am decorating.  After all the bits and bobs have dried I will add some glimmer sprays and see how it all comes together.  

I promise this is the last William Bartlett pear I am showing on woyww.
I have promised DH I will move on to other fruits.  Possibly a lemon to capture the expression he keeps making.  
Have a lovely woyww and easter break.
