What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 257

Hello fellow crafty people, 
Sorry I am posting this so late (late night at school moderating GCSE and A Level coursework .. fun, fun! Then I had a worksheet to sort out for tomorrow ... sigh).  Anyway, finally made it up to my craft cave and  this is what my desk is looking like this week.

As you can see, I am in mug mode this week.  I'm in the middle of making a mugs for various occasions using vinyl cut by my trusty silhouette.  My friend is leaving work at half-term and she rather likes to eat cake.  Another friend has a baby due in a couple of weeks so I am making her a mug to go in a little baby preparation kit I'm putting together.  The middle mug I painted at craft club last Friday.  I loved doing this and definitely intend to do more.  

Finished impending motherhood mug.

My 9 year old has taken rather a shine to this one so this one looks like it will be stopping at home.

Well that's all.  I'd better be going to bed after a quick nose at other people's desk. Please leave a comment if you drop by.  Have a fabulous week.

Ela xx


  1. Oh wow Ela these are super! (Could do with a bit of cake right about now!). I love the baby one that is so funny. Thank you for visiting! Cindy #36

  2. I think that is so cool that you are decorating mugs :) ~Stacy 93

  3. Great mugs - especially the momma mugs! I have done a bit of vinyl with my Cameo, but not mugs. I think I need heavier duty vinyl than what I have on hand to stand up to the washing. Charmaine #94

  4. Hi Ela - what a lovely idea, making personalized mugs for folks! I've never tried anything like this, but it looks like fun. Hope you manage to stay on course with the marking. My DH is always beset by it, and not helped by the cat always wanting to 'help'! Have a great week, Chris # 47

  5. Cute mugs... I love the idea

  6. Ela,

    These mugs a fantastic and how clever of you to be able to decorate them yourself, I have never seen anything like this before on WOYWW, good for you. Now don't over work yourself, craft and relax.

    Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment.

    Happy WOYWW

  7. Hi Ela,

    Those mugs are great! I've seen mugs decorated using sharpies. I don't know what vinyl cut is. I have a Cuttlebug but not a silhouette - are they similar? Yep, maybe you should write a tutorial?

    Thanks for visiting me already.

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (17)

  8. Sorry I am so late visiting not sure where the week had gone so having a quick fly round the desks before we start again, thanks for sharing your stunning mugs - Nicky 11
