Happy WOYWW! WOYWW? You ask? It is the What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday blog hop hosted by the lovely Julia at The Stamping Ground where we open our craft room doors to show what our work desks look like on Wednesday. And to show what fun crafty items everyone is working on.
I know…I’m not sure what happened either. And it didn’t just happen at my journaling desk..lookit: it happened at the card making desk too!
All this open room is sorta freaking me out. But it was necessary as I have to get into full card making mode for upcoming birthdays, a few fall craft fairs, and…you are all thinking it…Christmas.
That is a Sheena Douglas 3D Embossing folder I had gotten from the Home Shopping Network craft Marathon months ago. I'm just now trying to use it; it didn't come with any sandwich instructions, and I have the Vagabond and a Big Shot, and I just can not find a way to get it to go through the machines! Too thick with two cutting plates, too thin with crease folder and all the shims...any ideas?
I also did get some creating done this weekend. Here is the finished page of the second half of Kasia’s Wanderlust lesson on using photographs and trees.
And then, to avoid the hoarder syndrome: last week’s really, really, nice watercolor journal? Look!! I used it! It came with a set of water color pencils, so I used my new Darkroom Door stamps (I just had to get thanks to an Instagram post-I have a thing for grape hyacinths!) stamped in pale gray, then colored with the pencils and watered down to blend. I didn’t ruin the book; the pages don’t suck, I don’t have to hold this book to immaculate standards. It is just a book, with really, really nice watercolor paper. (OK, now I have to do that with the Dina Wakley journal…shame to have that sitting there never to be used!!)
So, there you have it. Now jump back to Julia’s and see some more creative spaces. Stay Crafty, my friends!
