WOYWW #143

Once again it is time to peek into the crafty, creative workdesk's of all our bloggy friends. If you would like to join in the fun, just click on Julia's blog here.http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/

I don't know if you  remember my stamps from last week. I've got all the images stamped off and coloured. I'm still working on  getting them made up into cards. I finally finshed some and submitted them for a few challenges. I have never done that before and have been wanting to delve into the challenges for quite some time.

The finished cards are at the back of my desk. I now have a little mountain of the other finished images from last week, to run through my big shot and then make into cards.

In typical fashion, I am putting that off and  as you can see I am just starting to stamp off even more images! I will use these on thank you notes. These ones will be great to take with me to DD's on Tuesdays.  I only need to bring 2 copic pens, 2 stickles, and the little baggie of images...easy to tuck in my purse!

Once little Miss C goes off to school, little Mr P usually plays with his trains (or toys) for about a hour or longer and then comes down looking for "'Gwamma" to play a game or play Go Fish. I have a game plan in mind and plan to work on these images while he is building trains.

I also have some ticket stamps out as I seem to go through a lot of these. I like a variety of sizes for both cards and scrapbook pages. Lastly the coffee and tea stamps on the left will be stamped off and made up into cards to hold a coffee shop gift card.

Just want to assure you that my desk is not always this tidy. WOYWW just happens to fall on the day that my neighbour and I get together to craft. I always set up the desk with my current project, on Tuesday night before I go to bed. If this was "what's on your workdesk Sunday", it would be quite a scary sight.

Hope you enjoyed this little peek into my desktop (and my life) and  I will try to get round to yours this week!

Sherry Edwards said...

That looks like quite a production line you have going on there. I bet once you do one challenge, there'll be no stopping you!

The small matchboxes used to be plentiful, and I don't know why our pound shops have discontinued them. However, today out shopping I managed to find a couple in a newsagents - so all's well!

Have a great week,

Sherry - WOYWW #6

Your cards are just wonderful!

Amy E said...

You desk looks wonderful and tidy and fun! I'm JUST starting to get into coloring stamped images (I'm more of a Cricut girl) so it's been fun looking through some of your work!

YAY for couponers!!!! I'm one of those crazy ones who gets upset if I don't save at least 95% on my total bill! I've really been slacking lately though...I need to get back on the couponing wagon!

I TOTALLY recommend the Scor-tape. It's the only thing I've found that even comes close to real Washi tape.

Thanks for taking a peek at my workdesk!

Shoshi said...

Beautiful bird cards, and what a neat and tidy workspace!! I am envious. Mine's a tip these days!!

Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. I tried my new mat today - it's under my non-stick craft sheet, and both are on top of my big quilting cutting mat (I also warped this one - warped bit now furthest from me lol!!) - used my heat gun, and NO heat went through! I'm impressed with it!!

Yes, I'm fairly techy - love using the computer as a tool for creativity, and so enjoying getting to grips with Inkscape! That's one awesome program!!

Happy belated WOYWW,

Hi Mo! Love your space and those cards are stunning! As for the cases on my shelves they are called Scraponizers and they come in different sizes for different storage uses. Those are 8 1/2 x 11 and they hold all my unmounted stamps. I love them because each holds a ton of stamps. Have a great day!
