Sunshine!  There is a lot of that on my desk today.  The window is open, the breeze is stirring the brilliant yellow, orange, red, green and gold leaves and I’m up to my elbows in projects!



We will start at the left, with the case of a Christmas card that my friend Kat and I worked on last week.  I’m one that makes prototypes of things before jumping in  and that was the first.  It didn’t turn out quite like I wanted so another is in the works.  Above it, is the other prototype of a layering technique that she and I also played with.  I’ve got the gist of it, just have to make some more.  The newly decorated binder is part of the Organized Christmas  plan that I’ve been following for years.  That binder however was always just a shabby grey, horrible thing really, but now it is all spruced and ready to march me through the season yet again.  Next to that is a card I’m working on for a lovely couple and it’s been quite a project but I’m loving the way it’s turning out.  Behind my water cup there is a birthday card that is a large easel card and off to the right, paper scraps, ruler, cutter. 

Not to fear if you’ve been here before and are missing the lovely array of my Copics.  They are now off to the right further as I was having a time of it using the monitor over in the corner, I kept rolling my chair off my mat onto the carpet and hitting my knee on the side of the cabinet when I turned round.  Since I’ve been spending more time up here my knee was really suffering.

Well I’ve spilled my desk and it’s secrets and now it’s your turn!  Drop me a comment and I’ll stop by to see you!  Be sure to pop over to see Julia at The Stamping Ground and check out some other amazing blogs!!!

Bad Bloggger!

I’m hanging my head ruefully and apologizing profusely!

I didn’t give due credit and I’m sorry, I totally forgot!!!

The Minion file for the birthday card came from Okieladybug’s Scrap N’ More 

The wonderful Christmas Tags came from Mels Stampz

The Christmas Stockings and the Halloween Silhouettes came from The Lady Wolf.

These were all free files and I thank them all very much for their time and talent in creating them and sharing them!!!


I won’t forget again Winking smile

I actually have been making quite a ruckus this week!


I have finally gotten around to using my Pazzles!  I’ve been saying for years (blush) that I was going to spend some time learning it and playing with it and well I finally have.  My start was a birthday card (you can see it in the previous post) and now I’ve moved on to all manner of things.  I’ve made some various Christmas gift tags and I’ve got some shapes out of black paper for Halloween cards!  Today I’m going to try my hand at some full on cards!

Now off you go to the happy world of deskers via Julia and the Stamping Ground!

One in a Minion…

So I knew I wanted to make my Dad a birthday card and really aren’t cards for most men the hardest ones to make!  I mean you don’t want to go all flowery and sappy and look if your Dad isn’t a golfer, fisherman or lighthouse kinda guy, things get a little slim for pickens Smile

So I broke out my Pazzles and my Make the Cut software and muttled my way though using it to create this card.


Now I honestly had no clue what I was doing in attempting to use the Make the Cut software as I bought it and never familiarized myself with it, trial by fire you could say.  Now that I’ve played with it, I want to learn to use it so I’m forcing myself to spend some quality time with it this week!

WOYWW #275

Hadn’t been at my desk in a while to do anything that I could show and tell about as it’s all been computer related.  On Monday however my gal pal Kathy came round and we spent the day sequestered with inks, stamps and papers!


Partial fruits of my labor are shown here after the clean up, not that we were using this table lol, I’ve got a 6’ foldable that I put up when she comes over Winking smile  So what have we a birthday card completed, 2 Halloween cards in need of insides, an unassembled Christmas card and 4 stamped poinsettias that have been cut and are awaiting coloring.  Having her come over reenergized me a bit and now I’m ready to spend some more time getting inky! 

Away with you now to see what else is going on in the world of deskers starting at The Stamping Ground and our lovely host, Julia!
