It's time to pop round the world and peek onto all the crafty desktops...yep, it's What's On Your Workplace Wednesday! Be sure to drop by the lovely Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/ and leave her a little blog hug as she is the one who hosts all this peeking.
I am still struggling to re establish my crafting routines. My room was a bit of a fright so I have spent a couple of evenings filing away all the bits and bobs on the main desktop. I attended the Clipper Street Scrapbook Store garage sale on Saturday and managed to get a lovely bunch of 12x12 cardstock and patterned paper @ 12 sheets for a dollar. Fifteen dollars later, I had a huge bag of paper to file.
I should have kept on with the job and got the embellishments filed away...instead I got waylaid by the realization that I now had enough clear counters to perhaps make a card. I put together a Christmas card and decided to try out the new Kraft chevron bag as my envelope.
A couple of strategically punched holes, a bit of coloured jute threaded through and voila!
I went with fine, brown jute as it went with the card.
As usual, my photography skills are lacking. I do something wrong when I take my pictures:( My cards always look bottom heavy and elongated on top. I never seem to get them square on. In this photo, it looks as if the red border is missing on the bottom of the PP rectangle. It is there, but it hidden in the angle of the photo. I used a florist frog to try to avoid this angled problem:( It didn't work!
Any critiques and helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
