WOYWW # 402 & Un-mounting stamps

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."




Good Morning Deskers!  I just skipped over # 401!  How does that happen?  I know I have asked that question, before. I am wondering, why do I have a Blog?  I don't remember, but I think I began one so that I could take part in challenges that required a Blog.  So much for that! LOL  I am not too committed to it.  But, I have met a lot of nice people all over the world taking part in Julia's What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday Blog Hop!  I guess that is what you call it.  Check in over at Julias Stamping Ground and check out all the other deskers if you never have.

Here is what is going on in my space today!  I am little by little un-mounting my wood mounted stamps and putting them in smaller cases.  I put the wood stamp in the micro-wave about 9 seconds and then the whole stamp peels off.  I then take off the label and put it on the stamp.  You don't have to do that step, but I like the picture on there of what the stamp is.  Or, I have taken a photo of the stamps while still on the wood, and printed off on paper and put it as a cover on the case.  These cases were purchased from SU!, and they have a sleeve for the paper with the photo.  Most of these stamps are SU! anyway. The thing is  I was supposed to be freeing up space by doing this.  But what am I doing?  I am still using those clam boxes to store things in, like die cuts or pre embossed panels, or even pre cut and folded card bases.   I keep thinking of more ways to use them, so I still have them!  LOL  And  those of you who are un-mounting  your wood mounted stamps, what are you doing with the wood blocks?   I have decided to just toss them.  I am hoarding way too much anyway! 
                                                     So, here is my desk. 


Hope you had a great Valentine's Day yesterday!  Thanks for stopping by!

What's On Your Desk? Wednesday # 400 Scrapping and Playing

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."

Happy February!  I have been MIA since for a while!  I will sneak back in today.  Sorry, there is no photo of my desk, but here are a couple of projects I have worked on this month.  I took part in the Facebook online Creative Memories Virtual Crop a week ago and this is one of the LOs I did.  I am trying to do our photos from the 80s!  It is fun to remember those times as I scrap. Below that are some cards I made using stamps that had never been inked up.  The Hey Chick! one was a set I got for free , a Sale-A-Bration set from SU!  The Art Impressions ladies set is one I have had for a while and never inked up.  So scrapping and playing here, what are you doing.  I will be by later to see you! Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to stop over at Julia's Stamping Ground to check out all the other deskers!




Have a wonderful week!
