WOYWW #293

Welcome to WOYWW…the “What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday”  blog hop created by Julia at the StampingGround,  so hop over there to join the fun.

This week: Still clean! ‘though there was a dicey time, during an emergency birthday card making frenzy that all the progress of the prior 2 weeks would be for naught.
So, here is what you see: a clear (definitely not clean) craft mat…perhaps time for a new one? The curly edges are driving me nuts!  The torn, ink-smudged cast-offs of said birthday card emergency.. some Altoid tins I WILL do something with…ditto the business card box...some lists on the right of the craft mat; and see the mug?  It was something I bought for a gift for a co-worker…then found something more suitable…isnt’ it festive! It is Lenox, though, and breakable…so I do have to be a tad careful! And it kept some tea hot for most of my cardmaking frenzy..a plus in my cold room (yes, I said cold…see the window…it was -8 last night)

And here is the card.  Another of my “non-resolutions” is to use all my tools, which includes the 4 Sizzix  pop and cut inserts I have; the possibilities are fascinating; but for some reason I am finding coming up with pleasing designs on/in them is just not happening…
So, while I finally figured out the inside mechanics, the cover is a tad boring; but time; which is a great muse-threaten-er  anyway, was against me.

Oh, also, last week you saw the items ready for me to delve into my 19th Compendium of Curiosities challenge. So here it that panel. I admit, I kinda like it—not enough to get a sewing machine...or needle and thread for that matter...but still.

Right, so there it is; now go see Julia and portal to other wonderful desks around the world. Have a wonderful week everyone.


  1. What a fun pop up card!! I have several of those myself, and sadly, I haven't used them yet. I think if I lost my internet connection (OH NO!!!), I would be completely content with what I have, and wouldn't want anything else....but alas...

    Happy Crafting!

  2. I like the sentiment stamp on the front of your cover. As for the pop n cuts. Look on Pinterest for some ideas. I waste lots of time getting ideas there...#39

  3. OMG I love the pop-up card it is gorgeous Kim, I LOL, as we are right next to each other this week! I love your panel too - what happens to it now? I am unfamiliar with these panels! Cx #69

  4. Very cool pop-up!!! I haven't done one of those in ages!! I agree with Belinda about Pinterest. I have much pinned that gives me inspiration and ideas. Happy WOYWW!

  5. Youre so good..make a resoultion and come good on it! The pop up is lovely, I really like the text you've used there, what fun. Splash out ona new craft mat or a non stick oven liner - they're heavier and less curly and do as good a job in MO.I wouldn't get the machine out too - hell, I've got stamps for stitching. If that makes sense!

  6. I live the 'one more candle' card!! That made me laugh a lot. I think you should treat yourself to a new mat though :-). Go on, you know you want to!!
    Hugs, LLJ 29 xx

  7. Great pop up! Hope you keep your tidy desk tidy.. I'm trying to do that too! Helen #5

  8. Lovely projects and like you there are always alterable possibilities on my desk. 78

  9. Have you thought of just turning the mat over so it curls downwards?
    Great card. I never invested in the dies as I can do them on my silhouette, not that I do it much! cough Cough!

  10. First off, the cover is not boring. I love it. But yeah, the inside puts it over the top fabulous! Go you! Congrats on your 19th Compendium project. Great piece. Creative Blessings! Kelly #69
