Cyber deals! New Copics!

My new Copics markers.

My new Copics markers.

I buy most of my Copic markers online from one store: Carpe Diem Store.  They have the best prices and if you order a bunch you can have free shipping.  So when they sent me an email with markers on sale for $4.19 each I almost cried.

Most people search for big electronics on Black Friday and I search for craft deals.  I had put my purchasing of markers on hold for a while.  But the deal was too good to pass on and I really needed to get more colors to add to my collection.

They arrived today and I always add them to my color chart to see how far I have to go to complete the set.  I like looking at them before I put them in my carrying case. It’s a little ritual.

I look forward to using them on my future projects.

Happy deal hunting!




What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #189

Hello Everyone!!

I am feeling much better this week. I finally went to the doctor and it appears yours truly has bronchitis.  Finally able to reduce the medicine so I think I will be as good as new in a few days.

My bulb finally bloomed in my reading nook.

I think the bulb in my craft room has helped in my healing process too. I have been watching it for days and finally they opened.  It is cold here but I can see the tropics when I look at the blooms.

My pretty flowers!

Ok, so what am I working on you ask?  I am working on my 2013 Project Life album.  I started in on the cover and printing the first two weeks of photos.  I decided this year to make my own cards instead of buying the kit.  So let’s see how long before I breakdown and buy a kit.  <hee hee>

Wide shot of my desk.

I actually cleaned up my desk so I actually am enjoying working at it today. So I was able to spread out and actually create.

Close-up of my project.

On the stool next to me I have a bag filled with the paper I intend on using for the album. I picked a vibrant color scheme because I am excited about all the possibilities for 2013.  My jelly bean jar was way too far on the left for my liking. I usually have it very close but as you can see it needs to be refilled (I wonder how that happened?).

My Project Life album.

Using some of my stash feels good. I typically buy new each project but I have decided to shop my stash for this year’s album. I used some Dear Lizzy letter stickers that I have been hoarding for way too long and snatched up a bunch of bright color papers and started creating the cover.

Well I have run on way too long.  Shhh don’t tell Julia how long I babbled!

I am off to go check out your desks for more amazing inspiration.

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!
