What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday #485

It's Christmas time!  No, not really, but it is Christmas card making time. I've made some cards and I'm now working on the insides.  My goal is to make the insides and the envelopes are pretty as the outsides!

So what you see is papers cut to size and me in the midst of gluing the first layer inside the cards.  Oh and in the far left corner, a peek of sunshine after many days of clouds and crazy rain.

So now off you go to the Stamping Ground for more desk adventures!

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday #483

Good morning deskers!  Today you get an in-between shot of my desk, as in I worked on Christmas cards, cleaned up and am now setting up for some Anniversary cards.

There are some pre-decorated envelopes that are just random.  A set of Anniversary sentiments, and my bag of parts and pieces waiting to be used.  I've gotten very good at recycling all the scraps I had a habit of saving, those things take up a lot of space!

So that's it from here, pretty boring I know, but I just have to clean up in-between projects lol!  Off to the Stamping Ground where I'm sure you will find some very unboring desks!

P.S. If you want to see the post about my new space it's here: Change is a Good Thing

Change is a good thing

I'm almost all back.  Almost.

Recently, depression took hold of me after a falling out with my beloved niece and chronic medical issues.  Side effects of medication caused issues with my feet and hands and walking and creating became something I could not do.  My amazing husband decided that if going up and down the stairs to my craft space was too much, he would create a new craft space for me in my favorite room of our home, our all seasons room.

Seven windows and 4 skylights grace this incredibly bright and wonderful space.  I have views of my gardens and pond (as well as all the weeds that need to be tended lol!)  The room has the door the dogs go in and out of which puts me closer and means less bell ringing by Tucker. (ah!)  Currently, there is still a piece of furniture that I'm trying to rehome, but the room has become my favorite place to be.  I have a sofa and the coffee table my grandfather made from the window of a B-52 bomber!  I grew up playing under that table and it means the world to me to have it.

In addition, I now have a tv and an electric fireplace!
That's my cozy side of the room, the other side is all business.

A new electronics workspace.  No longer does my computer and gadgetry interfere with my creative space.  This isn't quite finished as I'm waiting on a single Alex unit to go under the monitor and then we will figure out some sort of shelving on the wall above.  Mainly for display purposes.

The crown jewel is my new workdesk and the bench seating around the windows, which, actually houses some wonderful big drawers!

The new desk is roughly five foot by four foot and gives me tons of space to spread out.  I have four of the Alex drawer units which basically hold everything but my stamps, dies, embossing folders and papers.  All of those items are in the drawers and we will be adding a couple of extra drawers units inside to maximize the space.  The only thing that I haven't gotten down here yet are my wood mounted stamps, I think one of the large Alex units will hold all of them as I've downsized my collection over the years.  

I've spent the last week organizing and arranging things so haven't really had the chance to create anything.  I hope to be able to do that soon, now that I have a bright new space!  The other upside is that my husband can watch tv while I craft allowing us to be in the same room and I love that! He joked that he was so awesome because I also have an annex to hold the stuff that wouldn't fit down here.  Mainly genealogy paperwork, paints, and canvases. I told him, he was right he is amazing!

What's on your Wordesk Wednesday #482

This will be quick because a much more detailed post about the goings on will follow soon, and an explanation of why I disappeared for a while.

So the desk is covered with all kinds of stuff as I organize a new creative space! Picture one shows the back side of my new huge desk with stuff that still needs to be put away.  Picture two is the front side of the desk, and my current project of cutting all my paper into the sizes I work with most.  Now off to the Stamping Ground you go.  Have a great day!

What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday #473

I am a bit behind today. 


My desk in all it’s mess.  Currently it’s displaying recent purchases that have been building up but not yet used.  The first image you see my dried out stamp shammy, my once white wiping towel, some pet stamps that need to be put away and some new beach theme stamps. Next a new tonic die and under it a new 3d embossing folder.  The cd cases are stamp sets my mom gave me that have to be put into folders.  Finally, some blank note cards and some dog and beach themed scrapbooking supplies.  The photo play dog set is called Cooper and friends and one of my Great Danes just happens to be named Cooper!

So friends that is it for me today.  Hop over to The Stamping Ground and see what other deskers around the world are doing today!
