A very late WOYWW

So late it's almost a WOYWThursday!!  T'internet is finally reconnected at work, but not until about 5.30pm so I couldn't post from work.  Had to wait until I got home, did all kinds of stuff and now, finally, I have had a chance to take a quick pic and here it is:
Not much of the desk on show I'm afraid.  You can just see the edge of my paint mixing wotsit on the left with a selection of chipboard bird shapes in it.  I intended to use them for something, but I can't remember what now.  The little black thing at the top was from a tube of some kind of glue, and I have found it very useful for unblocking my glossy accents from time to time.  The letters are MDF ones that I got from somewhere ages ago and never got around to doing anything with.  I finally decided to alter them this week and have been doing bits and pieces to them.  First I gave them a coat of Traditional Tan paint each, then another one for luck.  The pink then has some K & Co Madeleine paper stuck to the top then I swiped some tattered rose DI around the edge.  The other one I stamped a Wendy Vecchi stamp with coffee Archival Ink then swiped the edge with brushed corduroy DI.  Both of them were then coated with the very last of my transparent Croco and left to dry.  This evening when I got in from work I smooshed some walnut stain DI into the cracks then wiped the excess off with a baby wipe.  I've then spritzed some mallow pink and antique copper cosmic shimmer mist onto the pink one and some rich gold and antique copper onto the other one.  Not sure what I am going to do with them next.... maybe I'm finished... what do you guys think?
Ok, off now to see what's on everyone else's desks this Wednesday (maybe it will be Thursday by the time I've finished looking!).

I love the letters and the fact you're using things up that you've had in ages - I'm on a mission doing the same at the minute!

I love the different colours you've used!

Hi Kay - thanks for all your visits and lovely kind words and wishes over the past couple of weeks... really appreciate them.

Forgive me for asking - because you have probably said - and i've not been blogging - but what does JJ stand for... again, sorry if you've said!!!

As I mentioned, and you already know really, this is my first proper bloghop in over 2 weeks, so i'll have to come back and catch up with your other posts when i'm all up to date.

Take care
