Good morning!  It is time for What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday!  Check out all the desks at Julia's Stamping Ground.  I have been scrapping or at least planning pages for this week-end's Virtual Scrapbook Night at Splitcoast Stampers.  You can see the pages in the planning stage on my desk, and even some that I did last Sunday.  I am using some  BoBunny paper that I have had in my stash for a couple of years, or longer than that!  About time I used it.  My cup of tea is sitting there and also, the phone.  I have it on speaker and am talking to  my GF as I am taking the photo. See those doily die cuts? Or attempts?  The good one was cut on my GF's Big Shot.  I guess my Big Shot isn't tight enough.  I will have to add shims to make it cut right.  Anyone else have problems with the SU! doily die?  Please tell me what you do.  I am giving you two views. :)
    Well, that is it today.  Have a wonderful WOYWW!  Thanks for stopping by and for your encouraging comments!.   Now, I will go visit you and see what you all are doing  :)

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 254

Good afternoon, Fellow Bloggers!  :)
         I am late posting because I haven't been crafting today.  So, here is a photo of cards I did yesterday at a SU! workshop, and a new stamp I purchased.  On the right are my first attempts at using Gesso.  I used too much as you can see, and it made the card heavy.  So, I will take it apart and use pieces of it on some cards. :)  I want to take a survey here.  How many of you try things, and then don't use the results as intended?  
         Just thought I would tell you I took my snow photo off too early!  It snowed again Monday morning!  Can you believe it?  Here it is April and the possibility of snow is in the forecast again!

That is it!  Thanks so much for stopping by and for  your comments on my punch storage last week!
You can stop by Julia's Stamping Ground for all the details about WOYWW. 

Have a blessed Easter!

   Hello Fellow Bloggers!  What a beautiful day here!  I even changed my background from snow to Spring! Did this without  my tech support!
This morning I prayed  for energy, and God  answered that prayer instantly!  I have been cleaning on top of the upper kitchen cabinets and the top of the china cabinet!  I have to tell you the dust was deep, and I can't remember doing this recently.  I have been retired 5 years, and haven't done it in that time!  So, you can imagine how terrible it was!  I have the window valences in the washer now, I do wash those every year.  It will have to feel cleaner!
    All that cleaning, and I forgot about WOYWW!  And as you can tell, didn't clean my area.  I have been crafting, scrapping, and shopping!  I am so happy with my $3.00 pack of 12x12  paper pack, DCWV Tradewinds paper.  It is gorgeous and I can't wait to use some of it!  Also in the dollar bin, I found a 12x12 sheet with music dies on it.  A blogger commented last week about the calendar in the back.  That is a fun project we did at the last  SU! workshop I attended. I haven't been to any workshops since, and am looking forward to one next week!
     I have included a photo of the finished punch racks.  My husband got them all hung.  So now all my punches are hung, and I cannot buy anymore!!!!  Two drawers were freed up, and I have already filled them up,  one with my Gelli plate, and the other one with my watercolors.
     Have a great week! Thanks for stopping by  I look forward to going by and seeing you!  Here is a link to Julia's Stamping Ground, where you can read all about the Blog hop she hostesses and visit other Bloggers who show their space.  We are a nosy bunch! :)

WOYWW #252

     I have been AWOL for the whole month of March!  I also haven't done much crafting, but here is my desk showing some new "goodies" I got on Saturday at a local arts & craft store where I went to my second Geli Print Plate demo. They do so many techniques with it.  And apparently, you need more than one plate!  But, I didn't purchase another one, just bought some more stencils and stamps.  Can never have too many stamps!   Also, on my desk is an Easter card that I made using some of the first prints I did on my plate.  There are two little goodies that a Splitcoast Stamper friend sent me in a swap:  A teabag holder, and a little box with a package of gum.  Then the mess of paper and bags to your right  are kits I am getting ready for our Encouragement Ministry card making day tomorrow.
    In the other photo is some new Ikea racks that I haven't put up yet for my punches.  A girlfriend was in Phoenix at the Ikea store there  and picked me up some racks and two baskets. (one is up, already.)
    If you want to know why I am showing you my desk, check out Julia's Stamping Ground.
 Well that is it for this week.  Thank you for stopping by! :)
