New Beginnings & WOYWW #396

Joshua 1:9 "Have not I commanded thee?  Be strong and of a good courage:  be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:  for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."

I hope you all had nice holidays and are having a nice beginning to 2017!  Like with all new beginnings, it takes a little work. My photo of my desk for What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday is staged, I confess.  I just wanted to show you what I am doing.  I am trying to get organized for the new year, make a new beginning.   I have been making a notebook with tabs for all the challenges on SplitcoastStamper.   I have included my birthday lists of all groups I am member of in the back.  Hopefully, I will not miss making a card for an upcoming birthday! :)  Do you see those cute little jars with bakers twine in them.  Is that cool or what?  I scored them on clearance at a local stamp store last Friday.

I did reach my goal of 100 pages scrapped in 2016!  Now, I have set my 2017 goal as 100, also, since I know I can do it!  It isn't like I even need to print photos!  I have hundreds.  I am trying to scrap the 80s right now!  And when I get all caught up with that, I can begin my heritage albums, because I have all my Mom's photos, and her Dad's photos!  And that is just one part of the family's.  I have all branches of the family's photos from husband's and mine!  Everyone gives me their photos, because if they didn't give them to me, they would trash them!

Don't forget to check out Julia's Stamping Ground to find out all about WOYWW and to visit all the other deskers!  Maybe, you want to join us and show us your desk! :)

Happy New Year and WOYWW!  I hope you are having a nice new beginning!  Thank you for stopping by!

Happy New Year! & WOYWW 395

Luke 2;11 "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord"

I cannot believe we are about to celebrate a new year!  2017, no less!  Ok, I am going to show my age!  I can remember when 1984 was a book about the future! LOL  Or how about the movie, "Space Odyssey 2001"?  hmm!

                                Happy New Year!

Here is my desk and here are the calendar gift sets I made this year.  I have set a goal of 100 layouts this year.  I have about 7 more to do before the 31st to reach that goal! We received so many cards this year!  I had to show off the handmade cards!  If you want to see more about What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, check out Julia's Stamping Ground. 

Trying to scrap some older photos.  

I did 15 sets of these.

So tickled with all the handmade cards we received!  Love everyone of them!  Thank you!
Thank you for stopping by!  Thank you for your comments!  Again, Happy New Year!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #393 & Four Fold Card

Luke 2;11 "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord"

Late, I know, but I made it! Short this week!  Showing my desk that is cleaned from the last project waiting for the next one!  Check  out other Bloggers desks at Julia's Stampin Ground. Also, I thought I would share  a project called Four Fold Card.  I followed a You Tube video by Dawns Stamping  I normally do not do special folds because I must measure wrong and they never come out right.  But, I really liked this one, so I am showing it off.  So, that is it!  Have a great week!

Wow!  Enjoy this clean desk!  It won't stay that way too long!

This is the result of using a Scor-Pal and watching of Dawn's Video at least  five times!  It is a pretty cool card.  The top photo is the card open and the lower left is the front with the card closed.  Bottom right is just another view of the inside.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week!

WOYWW #392 plus scrappy time

Luke 2;11 "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord"

Oh, my goodness, it is Wednesday again!  Just a quick post to show you my desk, because that is what we do on Whats On Your Workdesk? Wednesday.  To see more about this, go to Julia's Stamping Ground!
I have finished my Christmas cards and even have most of them mailed, so I have been scrapping!
First, I will show you a layout I did for my Scraplift Challenge on SplitcoastStampers.  I scraplifted another SlitcoastStamper Scrapper.  Then below are  photos of my workdesk.  One shows all the photos spread out as I work on some more layouts.  You see my big pink adhesive runner.  Can't scrap without that.  In the other desk photo, you see a Stampin' Up! Scrapbooking/Paper Saving Template.  I have forgotten about it and just recently started using it again.  Since you cut out the inside of your 12x12 paper for this, I got out my smaller paper cutter where you can do this.  Also beside that you see my order that I received from SU! this week.  That is it; that is what is going on here.  Now, I am headed out to tea with friends, and then Christmas shopping.  Ta Ta! :)

I am scrapping a 50th anniversary trip we took back to the same place we went on our honeymoon.
Thank you for stopping by and peeking at my workdesk.  Leave your number so I can come by and see you.  I love seeing what all of you are doing, too.  Happy WOYWW!

WOYWW #391

Ps. 107:1  O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

It is that time again! Time to show our craft desks. Stop over at Julia's Stamping Ground to see the rest of the deskers!  I have worked on several projects lately, so just decided to show you what my stamp off paper looks like that is on my work area. You can almost see proof of most of  the projects on there.  Short and sweet today!  Already been to the gym this morning, but haven't eaten breakfast yet!  Oh, alright, decided to show you cards I made, too.  But not showing my gift calendars I am working on until they are gifted!!! Have a wonderful day!


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope to stop by your space today, too, so leave your number.  Happy WOYWW!

Happy Thanksgiving! & WOYWW 390

Ps. 107:1  O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Good morning!  My desk is a mess today due to nothing working out as planned!  Do you have days like that?   Also, showing you a shot of two plastic organizer pieces I picked up for a couple of dollars at a store that was closing and selling their display cases etc.  I am uning one for envelopes and the other for anything that will fit in it.  It is three sided.  I find that if something is stored in a drawer, as neat and organized as that is, I forget to use it!  So put some things in this plastic display case so I will see it and use it!

Also, forgot to show you my birthday presents from a couple of weeks ago.  Some new Chameleon markers  and a Wash Tape storage/dispensor.  

Why am I showing all this to you?  Check out Julia's Stamping Ground and find out all about it, plus see many other bloggers desks from all over the world!

Messy, unfinished projects that didn't go as planned.  Also on left a few things I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby!

My new Washi tape organizer & dispenser on top left and on bottom right my new Chemeolon Markers.  Also on top by light you see an example of calendars I make every year for friends and family.

Picked up pamphlet holders at store closing  for envelopes and embossing powders & assorted items.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
Thank you for stopping by!  And for my American friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Feeling Thankful & WOYWW 389

Ps. 107:1  O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

I am feeling thankful this morning , that I woke up, that my husband is healthy enough to be playing golf today, and that I have a craft room full of crafty things!  I am kind of frustrated with myself, that a lot of times I complain.  Why do I do that when God has given me such a abundant life?  There, now I am whining again about whining!

I am here to show you what is going on in my craft room, because that is what we do on What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday.  Below are several shots of my desk and other parts of my room.  What is going on are several projects.  Not happy doing just one!  I am scrapbooking, making gift calendars, a card or two and if that wasn't enough, last night I began to unmount woodmounted stamps!  That makes them easier to use in the Misti! (Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented!)  I don't know how I stamped before having the Misti!

This doesn't look too bad, but this is the cleanest area! LOL

I got a ton of 12x12 paper at a craft show Saturday for a flat $10.00!  Some of it was even in color families or papers that would go together and in large ziplock bags.  I was even surprised to find chipboard letters, and stickers in all of it.

I even had to move "stuff" off my work space and put it on my cutting station!

It doesn't matter how much room, I have, I just cover it up!
That is what it looks like here.  I am off to see what you are all doing!  I am thankful for all of you!  Thank you for stopping by.  Happy WOYWW!
