What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 294

   Col. 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Good morning everyone!  Missed you last week.  You would think that I could manage one Blog post a week, but apparently not!  So I have been crafting quite a bit in the new year.  In fact I am trying to use forgotten stamps in 2015. One of the cards I am currently working on is an old SU! image.  In fact I just water colored the image, just don't know what I am doing next.  But of course I am using new stamps too.  Right now I am trying to design a birthday card for a gentleman who plays a lot of golf.  I have a new image from Lili of the Valley, that I am planing to use.  Their images are so cute, They are a new favorite.  And of course I have a scrap page on my desk too.  For the first time I have joined the Progressive Scrapbook Challenge on Splitoast Stamper. So, I am working on Task # 3 right now.  Anyway, that is what is going on in my craft area!  Just showing my desk along with all the rest of the deskers participating in Julia's WOYWW at Stamping Ground.

Below is a  card I made for my wonderful Grandson with a Lili of the Valley image!  I used SU! DP and a combination of Copics and Blendabilities. I used numbers from my stash and one of my homemade enamel dots.

Also, below, is a photo of the wonderful handmade Christmas cards I received from my crafting friends.  They are all so wonderful, I  wanted to share them.

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Wednesday! :)

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 292

     Col. 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

          I have tried to think ahead of what I might say on my first Blog post of 2015, but still haven't decided how I might begin my Blog year. So, as usual will just show you  my desk as part of Julia's Stamping Ground's World Wide Desk Hop or known better as WOYWW.  I have been scrapbooking. In fact I am the new hostess for the Splitcoast Stamper Scraplift Challenge.  What is a scraplift?  You are inspired by another scrappers page, and you lift it!  Each month I will issue a challenge for the scrapper to lift a page from a certain gallery, or from a certain scrapper.  This month we looked at last year's January gallery for our inspiration.  Come join us if you are a scrapper.
          Here is what my desk looks like this morning!  It doesn't matter how much space we have.  The more we have the more we use!

I haaven't even thrown away scraps from Christmas crafting!

I thought I would show you another view.

Have a wonderful week!  Thank you for stopping by.

What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday 291

    I am trying to reorganize for the new year, so first my desk must be a mess.  Then it really will become more organized.  Right now I am labeling some boxes for stamps that have been just loose in a drawer. So my label maker is out on my desk as well as all the little scraps. If you look closely you can even see one of my Christmas gifts.  I had ask for a deck chair for my iPad, you know one like on Julia's desk?  She was an enabler!  Sh! Don't tell her I told you!
    Also below are photos I promised of my finished gift calendars.  I made 15 sets of them.  Thank you for stopping by.  Here is a link to Julia's Stamping Ground.  She is our hostess for this World Wid Desk Hop!  Happy New Year!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 287

Hi WOYWW Deskers!  I am really late to the desk hop this week!  A friend and I were crafting and then I had to do my walking!  Then it was supper time!  So, now that Wednesday is almost over, I will share what my desk looks like.  My friend and I are stamping our gift calendars, so what you see is a part of her and some that she stamped.  We each got a started into our project!  Feels good to be started! She used some of my stamps and I used some of hers.  Nothing like getting to use new stamps to get you inspired!  Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out our hostess, Julia, at Stamping Ground.

Have a great week!  I am off to snoop in your areas! :)

What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday 286

Good morning to all you WOYWW deskers, and to the rest of you too! It is time again to show our desks!  This is how mine looks this morning.   I am still trying to get all the Virtual Scrapbook Night Challenges done!  I still have three more to do, before the end of the month.   I picked out the letters from some chipboard letters for my title on the page I am creating,  then realized two of the letters weren't the correct color.  So, I had to paint them, and the brackets. I am giving them time to dry before I complete the page. Still don't know what embellishments I will put on the page yet.   My calendars are all cut out now for 2015, but I haven't begun to stamp them yet, so they are all just stacked up waiting for me to get motivated. A Christmas card I made this week, is still on my desk. So that's it today.  Oh, be sure to stop over at Julia's Stamping Ground to check out what all this desk sharing desks is about!

       I remember at this time how  thankful I am for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and for my family, my friends, and my country.

                    Ps. 95:2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving,
and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

Thank you all for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 285 & Enamel Dots

   Good morning WOYWW Deskers!   And good morning to the rest of you, too!  In retirement, my mornings begin later and later!  It has snowed here and has remained on the ground  for 4 days so far, and my Dear Husband and I are already suffering from cabin fever!  What will it be like in the dead of Winter?!  So, I went over and took a photo of my work desk for today's desk hop sponsored by Julia at Stamping Ground.  Check over there for all the details.  I have begun work on my gift calendars, well at least cutting them out.  Thanks to a dear Splitcoast friend, we will have them again this year!  Also, I am still working on the Virtual Srapbook Night Challenges which last the whole month on November on Splitcoast Stamper.  But, now will get this post up, and then go to the Mall to walk to get my 10,000 steps (at least).  These last four days I have made paths in my house from indoor walking! LOL
     This past week-end I went to a wonderful Ladies Bible Conference with Susan Heck as a speaker.  She is a wonderful inspiring speaker and spoke on Bible Memorization and the Titus 2 woman, dicipleship.  I came away with a new attitude to memorizing scripture, by the book.  I am beginning with Titus.  That is a small book. :)  Ask me about it from time to time and hold me accountable!!!!

    I have included some scrapbook pages I finished this last week.  I will come by and see you when I get back from my walking. Did you notice up in the right hand corner, that I am walking the Pacific Crest Trail, virtually?  Thank you for stopping by!  Oh, I almost forgot, several have emailed me and asked  for the Homemade Enamel Dots directions. Here it is: Enamel Dots Tutorial

What are those stickers on my Ott Lite organizer??? LOL

For our Alaskan Cruise Album
Road Trip

Also took part in Virtual Stamp Night card challenges.
The challenge was to use an ice cube on your card!
