Sneak Peaks on Wednesday

It's Wednesday again, time for WOYWW (What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday). In my case, that's sneak peaks time. What's currently on my desk goes on sale at the beginning of May.

I'm working on a teabag folding card making kit. And I'm in the process of testing the tiles I've designed to see if they look pretty enough when they are folded. I'm pleased with what I've got so far, and I'm doing step by step photography too for the assembly instructions. The haberdashery draw is open as I've just been looking for that jar of buttons.

Like my craft bag? I collect together what I think I might need for a crafting session from on top of my wardrobe etc and carry it downstairs in this bag. My mother made it for me. Like to get a closer look? I took these photos earlier when I was packing it on my bed. Some essentials like glue and scissors etc stay in it permanently.

And the peak inside - its got lovely pockets.

I'm so impressed with your tea bag designs. And step by step instructions are great, and take quite awhile to put together.

That bag your mom made is adorable. All those pockets are so very handy, keeps your supplies organized, and gives you the exact tote you need. Your mom must be a crafter to have created such a well thought out design.

Have a fun and happy WOYWW.

Way to go with the kit! Good luck with it.

I also like your little bag. That is a great idea to carry work items from one space to the next in your room. I keep looking for a large tray for that same reason. I need a portable tote of some sort. Thakns for sharing this idea.
