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!
