So I ‘discovered’ a blog last week called Stamping Ground and besides being just a delightful read she does a thing called, WOYWW which is What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday.
Now, I don’t know about you, but often when we are out driving or walking I wonder..What’s it look like inside?, What sort of garden do they have out back?, What does their studio or workshop look like? So now I get to be a voyeur and see other people’s workdesks! Since these folks are showing me theirs, it’s only fair I show mine.
Anyone that knows me even just a little, knows that I like being organized so my current project involve putting labels on my Copic Ciao markers. When I decided to stick my proverbial toe in the water with Copics I didn’t want to invest a lot of money into markers that I may well hate (read have utterly no success with) so I went with Ciao. Of course like a really good potato (or in my case organic corn) chip, once you start you can’t stop. (I’m convinced there is something in the ink that makes you buy more because every time I use them I end up placing an order for a few more colors!) I digress..
Over on Splitcoast Stampers in the Copic Storage discussion thread a gal posted a pdf that has the Ciao numbers in 1/4” circles that you can punch out and adhere with a little glue dot to the cap. No more digging through the markers to find the color I need.
Here’s what they look like attached. Not all the colors were on the sheet as it hasn’t been updated since they converted some colors to Ciao’s but I think I can figure out how to make 1/4” circles with those numbers on it.
Another project on my desk is a box containing beads (no I’m not getting into jewelry making!) I love these little hat pins that are showing up on peoples cards and I’ve had these beads for years got them back in the day when I was making domino pins to swap at conventions..yup! So all I had to do was get some pins and those rubber earring backer thingy's. I’ll get around to them, after I finish the markers, the OSW masculine birthday cards and those blasted cigar boxes that are still waiting to be altered… I will, I will!
So now I’m off to peep into other’s rooms, oh I can’t wait!
