What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #549

on my desk…

Hello my crafty friends. Last night we had a little snow and now this morning I woke to no internet access. So I packed up and headed to my closest Starbucks. I arrived to find that they don’t have access here either so I will wait and once it’s up I will push this post live. The funny thing is that this is nothing compared to the storm we had last week and we had power and internet access just fine.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with WOYWW (What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday), head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world where we get to snoop on other crafter’s desks.

Today, my desk is a busy flurry of stuff. I am frantically trying to complete the ’12 Days of Christmas’ tablescape for our upcoming ladies craft day on Saturday. We are having a themed meal around the 12 Days of Christmas and exchanging gifts. Oh yeah, and maybe some crafting will actually happen!! So on my desk you can see the first two numbers that I have assembled. I will embellish them more once I complete assembling them. I am not a big fan of glue sticks but the creator of these files recommends using it so that I can easily move the pieces around when adhering them. I am using the glue stick to attach them to the inner components that enable them to be hung as ornaments. I don’t intend on using them as ornaments only as table décor. I will be sure to share photos next week of the completed set.

Cut components.

This is what they look like once I cut out all of the components on my Silhouette. I figured out a genius way to  cut them out without wasting a lot of paper. It took some focus but I was able to do it.

Putting together number two.

This is what two turtle doves look like before I fully assembled it. It was really great to use up some of my mounds of paper. I have so much paper in my craft room, I could open a craft store.

These are the components to allow me to hang them.

Above you can see the components that must be assembled and glued to the inside of the elements to give them dimension and to enable them to be hung. I am using the hot glue on this part.

They are really fun to assemble, and I can’t wait to see them all finished. If I can save them and transport them back home after the party I will use them next year at my home.

It is crazy that Christmas is two weeks away. I haven’t finished my shopping. I haven’t sent out all of my Christmas cards. I am a mess. I am not going to let it swallow me up though. I suspect I am not alone in this holiday panic and I want to enjoy the season. So somehow, I will have to relax and let it be.

Well I am going to head out to pick up my boys. Today they have an early release and I promised them lunch at Panera!

I’ll be around to snoop tomorrow!

Happy crafting!
