I'm sitting to write this in front of the TV with scary red weather patterns lurching across the screen while they report on Cyclone Yasi. Really and truly, I think the Queenslanders have had enough!! My friend Jez is battening down with her elderly Mother tonight in Cairns. All the patients have been evacuated from the hospital where she works, and most of the staff are either in Brisbane or hunkering down like Jez. She's now having a glass of champagne, love her.
Well here's the desk today. There are lots of dragonflies in my garden at the moment so I've decided to use a couple of stamps to celebrate their lives dancing in the sunlight. If you'd like to see lots of interesting desks, pop over to Mrs Dunnit's Stamping Ground.

A couple of other things: I find my Scrubber Pad really useful, and at 2 o'clock from that, there is a hospital nail brush with black, very, very fine bristles. It's brilliant for clearing stuff out of the tiny spaces in some stamps without damaging them. (It escaped from somewhere to pursue a useful career on my desk.) I love using my stamp positioning tool and the stamping buddy for keeping the EP tidy on my projects. There's an assortment of stamp pads and EPs which haven't moved for a while.
On the right is my iPad with the cyclone info showing. By the time many of you read this we'll know whether Jez and every other Queenslander is okay. We have to change how we treat Mother Earth. The flood waters are just sitting around still in north west Victoria and the stench is dreadful. And the storms in North America sound pretty horrific. We've been ripping the life out of the planet for so long, it's no wonder she's going to dish out some major responses. Our species deserves a bite in the bum!!!
I wish the women would take it over - Mother Earth needs good house-keepers. Now I'll get off my soap-box. :-)
