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.
First, for those that congratulated me on my epiphany of last week; I’m actually not retiring until 2030..(ugh!) but am boosting my retirement funds by acquiring items now, rather than later..so thank you, but it a bit off yet. (really just a way to remove the ever so slight guilt over purchasing stash instead of applying the funds into a new car, or whatever)
That being said….there is some new acquisitions for my future happiness; the dies thanks to enabler Shazsilverwolf (Thanks for the tip!), some more stencils, and a few Christmas Stamps (cause you can never have enough??!!)
The rest of the mess is some items I used for the 3 cards (and yes, I fanned them out before taking the picture) which are techniques from a Craftsy online class: “Wild cards: 21 Techniques with your favorite supplies) As this particular lesson uses Distress Markers, I was pleased that these where uses/treatments I never would have thought of…so Cool!
I still need to acquire a larger container for my additional Distress Spray Stains and Paints; cause they can’t keep hanging out on the desk like that! And I really need a better marker storage; the Distress Colors of 2015 are running havoc with my storage space! (for those in the know: Will there be additional colors in 2016? I may need a bigger desk! (And see; that would mean a bigger room once we downsize..this all goes into that 15 year retirement planning; can’t move into a one bedroom senior living apartment…unless Hubby sleeps in the garage! LOL!)
And here are those cards;
|This one the border is too thin; but will be better next time|
So that’s my desk, now go say Hello to Julia and see what this WOYWW phenom is all about! Have a great week everyone!
