WOYWW #411

Welcome to the “What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday” blog hop hosted by the lovely Julia at The Stamping Ground, where we open our craft rooms up to have you peak at our desks. 

I just don’t know what is going on with me, time, or anything else for that matter.  But if ever there was a need for a time-turner…that would be now!  But I can say, I have managed to fit in quite a bit of crafting--just haven't had time to blog about it!  Mostly for the Wanderlust class. Unfortunately it’s been to get the projects done, without enough free time to really relax and explore the concepts or techniques.  But I’m still naive enough to believe that will change. 

But, for what you came for: Here is the desk as I left it Sunday evening.  This is Week 15’s journal page drying.  We got to paint mermaids…in the style of Mandy Lacefield.  My face not even close! LOL!  But it is my first person without the use of rubber stamps or stencils…so I’m putting it in the plus category. 

Here is a Birthday card for my Sister in Law with stamps and dies from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I went crazy when I saw the stamp set...and it’s corresponding stamp set…and the two coordinating paper sets…but the samples I’ve seen must be on cards much larger than A2, as there just doesn’t seem to be the room to show off those beautiful papers-so I haven't used them yet.

And here is my Brother’s Birthday card…using Tim Holtz products.  I thought it came together so well, I made another and gave it to my favorite Starbucks crew with some Lindt Truffles for Easter. 

And here is another Wanderlust Journal page..using objects found in nature and Gelli plates.  This was a lot of fun, even though I had to raid my herb pantry for bay leaves, as this was from a two weeks ago when we had 22 inches of leaves to be found outside then! LOL!

So that’s me; now go back to the Stamping Ground to portal off to other creative desks.  Stay Crafty my friends.
