WOYWw #266

Welcome to another “What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday” (WOYWW), the brilliant blog hop initiated by our lovely hostess, Julia at TheStamping Ground….and you can see all the deets there.

Wow…busy weekend here in the craft room!  And the desk shows it! Well, actually not as bad as it was; I am truly making an attempt to at the very least put the ink pads away when done…(it’s only a few inches for Pete’s sake! )

So this week, after making 3 birthday of which I didn’t photograph for some stupid reason..I then started the 6th Compendium Challenge (which you can check out here), which is altering burlap panels…what you are looking at: a possibly destroyed burlap panel..ok, maybe not destroyed; but not sure it’s heading in the direction I had in my head.  I have the rest of the week off, so first thing tomorrow, after I organize and purge the hall closet and laundry room, is see if it’s salvageable…or if I spend the rest of the day shopping! (Have you noticed how many Birthday offers you get nowadays?  The beauty of having to register online shopping cart accounts and Appreciation Cards! There are the TH roses I plan to use, the Golden Molding Paste that got the better of me, a feather stencil I reeeealy want to try to fit in (Dylusions Black Marble ink spray is/was in my head)  some dies to the left, the water pen I just realized is still uncapped…the saying that will be my main focus of the panel  and a ton of other scraps, misc. pieces, and tools all lying about. 
And here are 2 of the cards; the lighthouse for my Husband’s birthday…colored with distress markers, and the cupcake for a co-worker, using the TH framelets die/stamp set, and also colored with the distress markers.

Whew!  So now stop at Julia’s to hop around workdesks around the world! Happy Crafting everyone!    


  1. My panel was a disaster at one stage and I rescued it! Left it for 2 days and came back to it. Hang in there. It will be stunning in the end! Says she who nearly binned hers! Love that cupcake stamp. #70

  4. Hi Kim,
    I went over and checked out the burlap panels - they are great. I'm sure yours will work it's way through. Most of the time what I think about and what it turns out to be are different - sometimes happy accidents, sometimes not so happy.

    I'm not participating this week but thought I'd stop by.


  5. I just know you will turn that panel into a stunner. It is just teasing you to make you do a fabulous job.
    Great cards there. Enjoy your time off.

  6. Gorgeous cards and I am sure the panel will be just as good.
    Happy crafting, Angela x #41
