Whats on your Work desk Wednesday 351

Its a  chilly start to a Wednesday morning here.
On my desk today I have my two Crop-A-Dial  which I've been using to make holes in some tin pots & then setting the large eyelets I've had laying about in my craft room.  I plan on putting some small plants in the finished pots .& will probably find a home for them on the kitchen window sill .
If you would like to find out more about What's on your Work Desk Wednesday pop over to Julia's place where you'll find all the details. http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/

  5. Sweet little pots and a great use of the eyelets. Linda #17

  6. Great to see what you are doing with eyelets.... I am sure we all have a stash in the back of our craft cupboards.

  7. I've never seen coloured eyelets before, you're going to have fun with those!
    Hugs, LLJ 13 xx

  8. Oh that's clever Jill...I have too many of these under used resources! The plants will love it and you've used up stash that you probably wouldn't use on paper any mire. Win win I cal it!

  9. Now I feel guilty as that is a forgotten tool here. The Crop-a-Dial is very useful though. Have a great day and happy woyww, Angela x 28

  10. Love what you've done with your metal pots, Jill. I've got a little one like your oval one which I keep bits of kitchen paper and baby wipes in while I'm working. Seeing your Cropodiles reminds me that I really want one!

    Thank you for your visit and your nice comment about my kitty album page - glad you like it! I'm having fun with it.

    Happy WOYWW,
    Shoshi #21

  11. I never think to use it for anything other than paper :-(

    The pots are looking good!

    Happy WOYWW

  12. Morning Jill,
    Thanks for dropping by my page, and your nice comments.
    I love those pots, they would look good on anyone's window sill.

  13. I'm always amazed at what the Crop-A-Dile will punch through. I use mine a lot, eyelets not so much! It's good to find a use for them and your pots will look great on the windowsill. Top spot today. How about that?

  14. What cute pots! Thanks for sharing. These would also make great holders for your scrapbooking stuff.
    Have a great day!

  15. Lovely pots and they will look great on your window sill.
    I have loads of eyelets but never got the hang of using the gadget that sets them so its been in the drawer for years.

  16. Those are very pretty. What a nice idea! I didn't realise the crop-a-dile would go through them. I'm sort of learning how to use mine.

    Have a great week

  17. Hi Jill, love how you are using the eyelets! Great idea. I must have thousands of the darned things- bought when they were the 'in' thing. I don't make that mistake anymore! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #12 xx

  18. I'm just in from my afternoon school run and having done the morning school run and a full day of sewing in between I'm feeling rather jaded but as you can imagine those little ones never fail to put a smile on my face so it's all worth it.
    Thanks for dropping by at mine earlier.
    What a clever thing to do to your pots....love the effect.

  19. Hi Jill, I've just begun linking to the party. What a fab way to use those. I have a case of them too. Thanks for the inspiration! xoxo

  20. Looks lovely,

  21. Happy WOYWW and congrats on the 1st place. I have always wanted a Crop-o-dile. No idea what I would do with it, but I just love making holes! Ali x #42

  22. Aren't the crop-o-diles amazing? They work with almost anything! Would love to see the finished pots with some plants in x

    Take care. God bless.

    Happy WOYWW!
