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!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 284 & VSBN

    Good morning!  Here it is barely still morning as I begin this post.  I love being retired!  It is 11:58 AM and I am still in my jammies and robe!  It is not even up to freezing today and I don't think it will reach that high today.  Monday it was a record breaking 77 degrees here, and Tuesday 37, and now 25!  So, retired is really a nice thing to be today!
     Here is a photo of my messy desk.  I think it is messier than our hostess, Julia's.  I have been scrapping pages for Virtual Scrapbook Night on Splitcoast Stampers this week.  I have done 11 pages for 8 challenges out of 15 challenges.  Though, I am not finished with the challenges, I think I need to take time out to clean off my space before going any further!  There is supposed to be 13 feet of work space, but as you can see there is none.  In fact, I had to get down on the floor with my cuttlebug to cut out some dies for layers on my pages.  Hopefully, by next week, I can have the space cleared off so I can show you some of my pages.  Thanks for stopping by and stay warm!  Check over on Stamping Ground to see more deskers!

Hello, everyone.  Sorry, I didn't post last week!  It was my birthday week, and I just took the week off to celebrate!  I celebrated with friends on three different days, as well as with my husband for a Birthday dinner at Olive Garden! I received many birthday phone calls from friends and family.  One of my friends came over on my birthday and we stamped and played in my craft room.  I recieved fabulous handmade birthday cards, and lots of crafting goodies, and two vases of flowers!  So you see, I didn't have time to post.  Here is a photo of cards made by my crafty friends!  Another is a photo of me with flowers our son sent, and the last two are of my friend and I in my craft room. My week was blessed with friends and family. I do praise the Lord for his many blessings!  So that's my desk this week!  :)  Check out Julia's Stamping Ground to see what other deskers are doing.  Thanks for stopping by!

My BFF got me lots of goodies, including an envelope maker.  

I had such a blessed  birthday!

My new toy!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 281 & Thank You Enablers!

Happy WOYWW everyone! I recently  watched a hilarious You tube of a crafter who blamed all the You tube tutorials for her craft spending. She used to be happy with one kind of adhesive, some paper and photos.  But now, she says she has purchased all different kinds of adhesives: glue, red line, ATV, dots, dementionals, etc!  She now has all kinds of pearls, embellies, etc, and an abundance of paper!        
Well as I watched that I realized that before I started looking at all your desks, I thought I had everything!  LOL  I have been participating in WOYWW since September 2013.  Since I started you have enabled (to just name two) me to want  a Gelli Print Plate, and Zentangle pen and paper,  I even went to classes for both of those mentioned!  So many other things too!  I just want to thank you, really thank you for introducing me to new crafts.  I really enjoy it all!
     Also, what I enjoy is when you make helpful comments!  As you can see, I still have my unique marker holder, (was a spice rack I bought at a garage sale for $2.00 about a year ago.)  I asked you what I should do with it, and several said use it to hold my markers!  I liked that and the look of it too!  But, alas, the markers kept falling out the back and under the cabinets, where it was difficult for me to find them.  After that several suggested putting a back on it.  This is the deal, they would then fall out the front because it isn't deep enough.  Now, I am thinking as I collect my SU! blendabilities, I will leave them in the boxes, and maybe they won't fall out as easily.  Maybe?  For now, anyway. :)
     Then last week, I ask about putting a thank you for your comments into the comment box.  Thank you Krafty Karen, and Rasz for helping me with that.  I think I was successful, even if it is so small and low.  Don't know if anyone will notice it.  I will tweak it sometime.
     All of this to say thank you to all of you deskers for your comments, and for all your enabling!

And now for why we are here!  To show our desks! And if you want to see more desks check out Stamping Ground, where our hostess Julia has everything all layed out for us.  I made that card in a Blendability workshop, and have been practicing on some oother flowers.  Also, some quilling I have been playing with, and a reject card, mabe I will use it for something.  Then some buys at 60% off from Michaels!  Yes, I guess Michaels was the enabler this time! :)

Have a great Wednesday!

       Good afternoon!  I wasn't going to post today, but here I am!   Here is what my desk looks like for all you WOYWW snoopers! :)  Completed scrap pages, cards from a SU! workshop yesterday, and a new toy!  I got this EK tulip edge punch for $3.99 today and was excided to come home and play with it.  I think it will make fun pieces to put on cards as well as great boarders for scrap pages. I am a fan of  EK punches, because if something doesn't work, their customer service is great.  I speak from experience.
      It has been a great day so far! Our Son called us this morning and we had a wonderful chat with him.  It is always nice to hear from our kids who are gone from the nest and live far, far away!   And then we had a wonderful time of Christian fellowship and Bible study this morning, at our ladies weekly Bible Study.   A great way to begin the day!  I hope you are having a blessed day today!

Stop by and see Julia' Stamping Ground and the other deskers if you want to snoop some more desks! Thank you for stopping by!  I am late, but I will come by and see you.  Hugs!
