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!

What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday #472

First and foremost I want to apologize to anyone that has commented and I haven't visited.  I stopped getting notification from Blogger that anyone had commented, when I checked today I had two weeks worth of comments, I am sorry if I didn't visit you.  I now know, that I must check the comment section to make sure comments are posted.   It's some 'glitch' they are supposedly working on.

Now on to the desk.  Well actually, what I just finished working on!
The first card is using the Concord and Ninth stencil. They have some papers that go with it, but the paper was grey and that’s not my thing, but I liked the stencil.  I used distress inks for the background and the flowers.  The second is a crazy dog colored with pencils on an embossed dog paw print background.  The banner die is really cool and is from Kat Scrappiness.  The last card was a toss together!  I had made a background using Oxide inks and then added more to it.  I decided to stamp the flowers from an old Angel Company set (one of my all time favorites) in similar colors of Palette inks.  I like how it came out sort of muted and chalky looking.

So that’s it from here.  Now hop on over to The Stamping Ground and see what the other deskers have going.  Oh, and if you click on that Kat Scrappiness link, it is an affiliate link, so I get a couple pennies if you buy it lol!  Have a great day!

What’s on Your Workdesk #471


Today you find me in the midst of working on my 2017 December Daily.  I took all the pictures, had all the supplies just haven’t put two and two together.  Now I am.  I hope to move on to actual scrapbooking after this, I’ve got so many pictures I want to get into layouts.  I’m going to attempt a hybrid of digital and project life style pages.
That’s it for me, now off you go to see Julia at the stamping ground to see what others are up to on this day!

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday? #470

Well, at least nothing creative.

I started (with husbands help) on Sunday a bit of reorganizing (he hung or rather rehung lol the shelves) and late Tuesday I finished up my desk area.  So on the desk, off to the far left is my Copic book, then my two-tier lazy Susan with all my Distress reinkers on the top and all my various vials of this and that on the bottom.  Copic markers and distress markers are next.  I got two new bins for my colored pencils and watercolor markers because they were tucked away an I haven't been using them.  There's a box with my spray bottle, some hand lotion and what not in it that was given to me a long time ago as a RAK.   The plastic bin housing the sunflower and other art (which I need frames for) has paper and such in it precut.  First shelf distress inks both regular and oxide and second shelf are my unmounted stamps, and third shelf are Christmas stamps and Tim Holtz stamps.  On the floor my bag of recycling, my trash can and the box, the bag is in is not recycle but is actually for spraying things in.  It's quite colorful in there!

So that is it from me.  Hopefully next week it will be covered in something magically wonderful!  Till then, hop over to The Stamping Ground where Julia the hostess with the mostest resides, she always has something going on!

Started a rainy Sunday reorgainzation.

It is time for a change so on Sunday I started to reorganize my creating space(s).  I know that on my desk and as close as possible, I'd like the stuff that I use most often.  This idea had me asking my dear husband to reinstall some Elfa shelves from a few years ago.  No boxes this time!
 This is where I ended up on Sunday evening.  My unmounted stamps are on the second shelf, all my coloring and inky goodies are close at hand.  I do not like the ink pads under the shelf sitting on the desk, they need a new home.   

Thing is, that's only half the battle!
 My Craft Box.  Sigh.  I have a love-hate relationship with this thing.  I love having the extra table, I love having the storage on the doors, I love having a place for paper.  I hate having to crawl on the floor to get to the stuff in the bottom, I hate the plastic pins used for the shelves.  The holes are not all the same size so some pins are so tight you need pliers to move them, others are so loose they spin when you try to put the shelf in.  I hate that I don't have a light over the table.

Well, it's Tuesday and here is where I am after 2 days of working on the box!
 I didn't change anything on the doors or the bottom (again with the crawling!).  I did spend some time moving some of the shelves and organizing my paper.  I sorted my paper by color and I even took apart all my paper pads and put them in there too.  Who knows, maybe now I'll actually use them when I reach for a color of paper.  In there middle are stackable boxes from Mdesign that I put my Christmas stuff in, they are clear and labeled!  My Christmas papers are on the first two shelves on the left.  Not sure what I'm putting on the others or how they will be arranged yet.  

I moved all my December Daily stuff to my cart, as well as my ribbons, Creative Chemistry supplies, adhesives and watercoloring supplies.  There are 2 drawers that stuff is just in right now, but I'm thinking all my stencils, stencil pastes and tools will end up in one of them. 

Finally, I have found the counter in the closet!
Those pesky ink pads are in there, but won't be staying!  I want the counter cleared off even more so that when I'm die cutting I'm not restricted like I have been.   It's hard to use your Big Shot when it keeps bumping into stuff as you roll it through. 

So that's it for now.  I'm itching to get making again!!!
