WOYWW 73


It's Wednesday, so that must mean that it's time to see What is On Your Workdesk again. To join in the fun, pop over to Julia's blog where all those inviting links are kept in a central location.

Today's desk is a little more disorganised than creative. I don't actually know where most of my crafty things are at the moment. I suppose it's all part of rushing around trying to get the house (and myself) back to normal after my visitors.

Still, I have managed to make some christmas cards. I tried embossing and then running over the (snow or snowflakes) with my white ink. I am fairly happy with the result so might try with other shades of card stock later. I also managed to use my paper weaved embellishment (that i posted about a few weeks ago).

I can also spy my halloween punch that i was using for some of my cards in the last few weeks, and a sentiment that i wasn't happy with from a previoius card order. Did I mention before my hatred of throwing things out? I'm sure i can do something with the shape, lol.

Off out early this morning, but will be hopping over to see lots of desks later this afternoon. Thanks to everyone who left lovely messages last week, hopefully i managed to return the visit.

Happy Wednesday!

Love the space. And it looks very organised to me, but I guess it's all in the eye of the beholder. The cards are great; who makes the stamp with the three houses? Thanks for sharing.

Not throwing things away is the best philosophy! You can surely reuse those scraps and bits and pieces! It is allowed for a desk to look busy: if you still are able to get some crafting done, it's just fine! Thanks for commenting on my blog! Happy crafting #47

Susan Allan said...

Thanks for your comment. I hate throwing things out too. I shall be doing crochet work with fabric strips, hopefully!!!

It's always a bit odd and empty when visitors leave! The cards are coming along great, and I keep everything too, and I mean everything!

Hi, See a very busy desk now that your visitors have gone, hope you had fun. Love your Christmas cards in the make. Liking your weave card as well, I'm a bit of a hoarder myself and try not to throw paper out that I maybe use later he he. Thanks for the peek. Hugs JO.xxx~88

Thanks for sharing! I like to make up little kits of scrap paper and random things like punches I'm no longer wanting and gift them to kids.

Looks like you have a blue theme this week too. The white ink on the blue looks fab, especially the dots. Makes me think of a snowy night!

Sherry said...

It looks like a busy desk! I like the Christmas card with the houses on too.

(The weather here in England today is drizzle, grey and overcast - bet it's a bit better where you are!)

Thanks for already coming to visit my desk - see you next week!

thats a definitive creative desk, thanks for sharing!
Sorry I am late passing by, my internet went down wednesday evening, how inconvienient

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

This is the third time I have tried to leave a comment. It's not blogger, it's me. I was here about four hours ago and thought I left a comment, but I couldn't sit long enough to make sure it took. Sorry I'm late getting here, but I'm taking it slow and sure, and it's still hard for me to sit for any length of time.

I wanted to stop by and thank you for your sweet comment on my blog and tell you how much I like the card with the house. That must be a stamp, because I see you are starting another one. Happy belated WOYWW (#15).

Shari said...

I think your cards turned out wonderful. Thanks for sharing your workdesk and sorry I am late this week.
