WOYWW 171 ... No desk & Small Haul of Supplies

I've missed another week of WOYWW last week. I was out of town and had no internet connection. But I'm back this week and I still don;t have a picture of my desk. I have however... a picture of my FLOOR! That's where I'm scrapping as of the moment. My room's being tiled and painted so everything in it had to be placed in boxes.
Here's my floor...

Please don't mind my dirty laptop... these are some of the things I got when I went to Manila.

My favorite being the glass vials...
They're old medicine vials that are being sold for Php 4 / piece. I think it's expensive considering I could have gotten them for free from friends working in the hospital. But I don't think we have this in this shape here.  I think I should have gotten more if these. There are others but this particular shape caught my attention. I'm wondering what I should do with them.

Then I bought some flowers... again... they look like cabochons and they're just Php 20 / pack (50 cents).
This is the mixed pack. You could also get them in packs of a single design and color.

Then I got butterflies. Php 30/pack ( more or less 75 cents)
Again this is a mixed pack. Downside is, there's only 1 red, 1 black and 1 yellow.

Then I got what I call "half pearls".
They don't have any adhesive at the back by the way and they're only Php20/pack. There are other colors but I really wanted this one. There's also a bigger pack but I don't think I need that many pearls.

Then I got beads by strands. They're only Php10/per strand ( which means they're like 25 cents per strand)

So there you have it... Sorry not much of what's on my desk for this week. I'm hoping we could finish painting by the weekend so I can move my things back inside and craft properly. 
Now go and head on to Julia's blog for more crafty desks.

  7. Lots of fun waiting for you with those beads !
    Have you thought of painting the little glass bottles (dab on with a paper towel not a brush & build up in thin layer letting dry in between) then stamping on them ? Did this at a class a couple of years ago & they look great ! Ali #59
