WOYWW #246

Happy WOYWW Everyone! That is short for “What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday”, the brilliant blog hop initiated by our lovely hostess, Julia at The Stamping Ground….and you can see all the deets there.

I hope everyone had a great weekend; and those of you  in the Northeast are finally dug out…I still think Winter is my 2nd best season…but it’s definitely Dakota’s favorite!!

And, even with the snow, I managed to get to Massachusetts for another gelli plate play date with BFF Julie, (no pics this  time…but just wait to see what we’re up to!)  And I even got some time in my own room…making a birthday card for my nephew’s 8th birthday. 

So, the desk is after the card clean-up…The TH Birthday Blueprint stamps are top center…there are some photo corners in the little bin on the left…so I can finally get my Christmas Card Samples in their book.. some experiments of the card top-right….OH…and BTW…You can use Picket Fence Distress Paint  with Distress Stains to get a marbled stain effect….and yes, I should be able to tell which bottle I pick up---but still….The funny blotchy paper far right is my brayer roll off for when I do use the gelli plate. Oh, and the coolest..the pear is a gift from Julie using TH’s Industrial Metal technique to go into my pear basket wall hanging I’m currently envisioning…haven’t actually started yet, just acquiring items and ideas…
SO, here is the marbled paint/stain background, then the card…

And my Dakota…couldn’t not show her!

So, there it is…now go stop by Julia’s and hop around the world to other great desks! Happy Crafting everyone.
