WOYWW Mar 28/12

 Happy WOYWW everyone! It is Wednesday and this is my desk today.  It is pretty clean today because I was just finishing off some gift card holders that I had started on Sunday.
And below is a close-up of three of the finished gift card holders! The dies for the holder and the coffee cup are from My Creative Time and I just love them!
If you want to see what crafters and artists from all around the internet head over to the Stamping Ground and join in the fun!

WOYWW Mar 21/12 .... Room Tour

Happy WOYWW! If you want to see loads of crafty workspaces pop on over to Julia's blog The Stamping Ground and join in the fun!
Today, I am not working on a craft so I thought I would show you around my space! The room is about 9.5' x 10' and this first picture is what you see from the doorway.  I have just started a re-organization so please excuse the mess!  That stuff piled on the floor will hopefully be gone very soon.
 This picture is on the immediate left as you enter the room.  I just got two more of the white cube shelves and that is why I am re-organizing.  Also a second Clip It Up with a second tier (pictured on top of the cube) so some stash will be added onto it as well.  See the bottom two shelves of the bookcase? Those are organized, ha ha!  Had to start somewhere :)
We are now moving around the room clockwise. This is the other bookcase which REALLY needs some re-organizing.  And also all the stuff just dumped on either side of it!

This is the desk where I usually take my WOYWW pictures.  Nothing much going on here right now.

 And finally the file cabinet that is beside my desk.  The cabinet itself is used mainly for work files as this is also the room I do my paperwork in but I use the top of it for any projects that are drying. There is a little box there with a coat of gesso drying.
Hopefully I will have everything re-organized soon and I can get back to creating!

 And look what I received in the mail!!  A lovely WOYWW badge from Julia!! (sorry for the picture, taken at night in artificial light).
Thank you Julia for the badge and for keeping WOYWW running every week, all your hard work is truly appreciated!

WOYWW March 14/12 and Clip It Up!

For What's On Your Workdesk Wendnesday (WOYWW) this weekI have my new Clip It Up! on my desk.  I have put most of my clear stamps on it and then I will use the little dividers/markers (bottom left corner of picture) that came with it to categorize them.
I hemmed and hawed about getting this but when I found a good deal on it I took it!  I am glad I did because I really like the stamps stored like this.  I am even thinking of getting another to clip all my 6x6 paper pads!
The only catch is where to put it, ha ha!
Want to play along with all the lovely crafters and artists at WOYWW?  Just go here to the Stamping Ground!

2 Cards in Different Styles

 This first card is the one I was working on in my last WOYWW post.  It is a Tim Holtz stamp with roses I Am Roses and a couple of little roses from Prima.  I think the paper is by 7Gypsies.
The second card I made a little while back and sent to the U.K., so I was  waiting for it to get there before posting it.  It is a MFT stamp from the Pure Innocence line.  Two very different styles but I enjoyed making both!

WOYWW Mar 7/12

This is (W)hat's  (O)n  (M)y (W)orkdesk  on this  (W)ednesday afternoon.  Want to see lots of other desks from all over the world?  Hop over to The Stamping Ground and you can join in with the weekly WOYWW fun too!

These are 2 of the ATC's I was working on last week when I took my WOYWW picture.

And these were on the top corner of my desk last week and I mentioned I had binned them into the recycling.  Well, I received a couple messages saying that perhaps I could still save them.  So I dug them out and I am so glad that I did!  I stamped the card some more and then stamped the Eiffel tower on some acetate and made an overlay.  So thank you to the people that suggested I take another look, it made me challenge myself a bit more and I really like these two ATCs!

Happy WOYWW everyone!
