What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #235

Hi Everyone! I have been away a few weeks and have missed you.  I miss all that crafty goodness you all display on your desks that make me want to play in my craft room even more.

I have an annual book club holiday party to attend tonight.  We all bring a book or two that are wrapped and meet at a local restaurant. We have a book swap and play trivia for prizes. Last year, I won a Christmas Cactus and  I was so thrilled I think I told everyone the next day (obviously I am still bragging!).  So I decided to put my Silhouette to work and created some bookmarks  for each member.

Book quotes

I used the’ print and cut’ feature to create the quote I placed on each book mark. The funny part is that my toner on my printer needs replacing so when I printed the quotes they started out green and then faded to aqua towards the end of each quote. The aqua matches perfectly and it looks I was trying for some gradient effect.  So I didn’t have to toss them.  I love that.

I was also pleased I didn’t have to by anything to make these little gifts for my friends.  I even shopped my ribbon stash and found the ribbons to attach to each.  Love when that happens.

Another thing on my desk or should I say my little side table is my Project Life catch up process. I am almost finished with the printing of the photos and will go in to add embellishments.

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.

I hope you all have a blessed day.


Hello Project Life 2013!!

Well it is another year and we begin another round of Project Life. For those of you who have never tried, you should check it out.  Last year, I did fall behind and barely posted pages.  But this year I aim to improve.  I think I may post a few weeks at a time to make it easier on my schedule.

This year I chose another We R Memory Keepers album. I tend to like the look and feel of them. I selected red because it just has the energy I feel for this year.

I also made a big decision to make my own journaling cards. I like the one’s Becky Higgins has made but I feel like I will be locked into their colors and some weeks, I have feel like they just don’t go well. I also thought it would be fun to use some of my stamps, washi tape and many other goodies that are crowding my craft room. So let ‘s see if  I make it through the year or if I cave and buy some cards. Perhaps I will mix some in with the ones I create. I am going to keep my options open and focus on fun and documenting because that is what it is all about.

I will post more pages soon some come on back with a cup of tea and relax.
