What’s on my desk you ask, how about what isn’t!


As you can see there is a lot of this and that going on and I’m sure that Julia at The Stamping Ground will be proud of me for having something actually happening!  Make sure to hop over there and see what goodness she has going on and check out some of the other wonderous desks!

So I’ve in the throws of Christmas card making.  If you peer there in the middle of the photo, near the towers of markers you can see my ‘card board’ (haha!) where my completed but not yet filled away cards are.  I put them there for safe  keeping and when the board is full, I put them in the cardkeeper that is on the floor in front of the board. So on the little desk top my big shot and dies, I got really irked because I couldn’t get a door die to work, it would cut but not emboss, grr..  So on the table and all around is my paper stashes (printed and patterned Christmas) my paper cutter, stamp blocks, glue and embossing powders.   I was really ready to toss stuff recently because nothing seems to be coming together exactly like I want.  I think the most fun I have had has been coloring with my Prisma pencils and gamsol!

That’s it for me.  Off you go and have fun!


  1. Hi Angie, thanks for swinging by..New Years resolution...use your Pazzles :) I love my silhouette..good to see someone has the same kind of organisational system as me!! I too have a little pre-filing space for my cards..Cx

  4. Your craft room is so inviting! I could see friends crafting together at your cozy table. I'm looking forward to making my Christmas cards and some garlands. But I need some pretty embossing powders! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #11

  5. Nice space! You seems very organized. Hmm guess I should have a profiling away spot....I just toss the finished cards on the desk behind me hap-hazardly. :) have a great week. Thanks for the earlier visit! WOYWW hugs! Nan G #22

  6. Your room looks quite organized. I hope to get more Christmas cards made after Thanksgiving. Happy WOYWW!

  7. We all have weeks when nothing seems to come together, but I always find colouring is very therapeutic. I am busy with Christmas cards too, but i am happy with that. I enjoy making them. Kate x #84

  8. Sounds like you are very organised with the card making.
    Have a great week making more.

  9. What an amazing caddy you have hanging on the back of your cupboard door. I have something similar in my office. Good for you getting stuck into the Christmas cards. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment.

    Happy WOYWW & Happy Crafting

  10. Oooh, what a lovely crafting space - can I come and play?
    Thank you for stopping by - I am rather late with my replies...
    Happy belated WOYWW and I hope your crafting week goes well :)

  11. Hi Angie,

    I'm impressed with all those markers! Coloring is always relaxing and it definitely helps me relax when things don't quite come together like I think they should.

    Thank you for visiting me already. I'm slowly making it around.

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (6)

  12. I like your card board! Great idea!

  13. Toss nothing. Walk away, give it a break and re-visit. Or call me to come play. You have enough markers now. I love the card board idea...quite inspirational and so nice to see how productive you are.

    1. Oh that I could pop over to play in your creative world!


Thank you so much for spending some time with me today! I really appreciate any comments that are left behind!
