What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #176

Hello Everyone,

First and foremost, I felt so much love from all the wonderful posts last week from: Maria, Joynana, Elaine, Lisa, Vickie, Julia, Bernice, Vonny K, Maggie, Deb, Dantiella, Mary Anne, Sandi, Kay, Anna, Tamika, Scrappymo and Kay (505Whimsygirl).

I was so nervous about entering my first contest and when I received all the wonderful warm comments, I felt like I already won.   Thanks for taking the time to look and write such thoughtful comments.

Craft haul from my weekend crop


I had so much fun at my weekend crop with my girlfriends. We spent from 9 in the morning until 9 at night laughing, snacking and working on fun craft stuff. It was at a store so of course I had to look and boy was that a mistake.  They carried three of my favorite brands there one,  which is MFT Die-Namics.  I just can’t get enough of their dies. They are so pretty.  So I bought a crown border, snowflakes, oval stax, jumbo fishtail banner stax, designer label stax and the cutiest icicle border dies.  Then I bought two new MFT stamps one of a little girl with snowballs and the other hugging a snow man.  I justified the insane total expense by saying they were tools that can be used over and over.  (Come on, that’s a good reason right?)


Cute storage I bought at Target.

Another thing I did while walking around the craft store was to get storage idea inspirations and one thing they did that I loved was have wire baskets all over the store with tons of cards in them for you to peruse.  Well I ran out and bought two wire baskets in the dollar section in Target and stuck some of my fall cards in them. In the back are pencils I bought in preparation for my boys’  Halloween exchanges in school. I am going to make something crafty to store the pencils for each child. I will post pictures when I create them.

A wider shot of my desk.

You can see some of my Christmas notecards I have finished and ready to go into my shop and some other images I finished coloring that are ready for use on some cards.  Oh and I made that little box when I was at the crop.  (see I did something) Mr. Huey’s color mist schoolhouse sitting there waiting for me to use it.

Well I am ready for some snooping and that’s just what I’m gonna do!

If you haven’t learned about this amazing creative journey you can take every Wednesday, then head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Have a blessed day!
