WOYWW 243

  I guess my snow background is really up to date today! I hear a lot of people have snow today, even some that usually don't get snow! We are cold, but I only have my photo today. :)  But I am actually doing some crafting!  This is what my workdesk looked  like after my friend from church came over and we crafted away!  We were doing pre- making of cards for our encouragement card making ministry.  We put together kits or samples for the ladies, so they can design their own or just  put together the cards.  Most of these ladies have never really paper crafted, and it is all new to them. They just want to serve the Lord. We usually have anywhere from 5 to 12  ladies that come in to take part in this ministry.  It is a lot of fun having fellowship with each other as we make these cards.  We make Sympathy, Praying for you, Thinking of your, Get well, and Welcome cards for new members. It has been a very rewarding ministry.

Check out Julia's Stamping Ground to find out more about WOYWW. :)

 Today, we printed off our sentiments and used the Cuttlebug Spellbinder dies to cut them, and then cut the colored cardstock for the next layer.

Well that is what my desk looks like.  What does yours look like?  I guess I will go see! :)
Thank you so much for stopping by and for your comments.  So fun to exchange ideas each week! Your comments are so fun.  I like how we answer each others questions as we "talk" back and forth.  Have a great WOYWW!

  10. oh you may be busy but your preparations are all calm and ordered. Great idea for a ministry I must agree, and you get a double whammy of the 'therapy' Aharon, putting together the kits for the ladies to put together the cards!

  11. I bet your ladies really enjoy working with what you give them. You are so organised. I just treated myself to one of those big tape things and it took me a while to work out how to load it. I ended up going to my default solve of all problems, a YouTube video, and it does work now. I am still not sure if it is for me. My daughter might end up with it yet. Hope you have a great week. xx Maggie #2

  12. I really like that die in the bottom photo and how it looks like an open book. I think your ministry and card making sounds very enjoyable. How nice to have a group to get together to do good work and enjoy each others' company! Thanks for the visit earlier. I don't always get a kitty in my desk pictures but pretty often. Some days they are off doing Important Cat Things.
