WOYWW 87

Good morning everyone.  In case you lost track...it's Wednesday and time to play along with What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  If you are curious about this, go on over to Stamping Ground and have a little look around and see what all my excitement is about!  Being the busy body that I am, I just love playing along with this.  You get a little look into the lives of so many crafters and each week it just keeps growing.  This creative lady has created a monster and I am happy to have become one of many bloggers who participate each Wednesday!


As you can see there is not a lot going on here this week.  Just an image or two that I have been working on for Valentine's Day, some of the flowers I received from Wild Orchid Crafts, some seam binding that I am distressing with some Glimmer Mist and Distress Inks, my new paper pack from Graphic 45 that I won from Joan's Gardens weekly card challenge.  Also the little plastic box at the back of the picture holds my Distress Inks that I use for coloring. 


And this is my new Baby!  And can I just say I love, love, love it!  My sister gave me a gift card for my birthday back in November  and I purchased this little number.  Since I love Spellbinders this is fast becoming my mostest favorite addition.  Of course, I'm having to purchase the dies one at a time, but they are beginning to come.  Can't wait to get them!  Since I have been unemployed, everyone in my family gives me money or gift cards for each special day and then I can purchase more crafting goodies.  I really love this idea as I can get many things I wouldn't ordinarily be able to have.  My husband has also done his share of this giving too!  I also try to purchase one or two things each month on my own.  This month it was the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts!

Well that is about it for me this week!  Now I just have to go snoop around a little!

Have fun with your new baby - I am similarly lucky too - I just hope there is not too much of a learning curve of using a new tool.

Glenda, Your table looks so clean! You inspired me to at least clean up my room so I could take a picture! I haven't gotten in the stamp room to pick up from last night(this AM) It is soooo cooold here. I probably would not notice it if I were still in Colorado, but this is Texas, so I am not getting out before I have to! I will just have to craft all day! Have a wonderful day!

Scrapcollectr said...

Yummy desk! It matches your banner and blog design perfectly (but then I guess that's not coincidental...hee hee). Can't wait to see what you make with your Grand Calibur dies. It's tempting because of the sheer size capabilities. Have fun!
Thx for visiting me!

Apologies for the lateness of this - I struggle to get round everyone each week. Lovely lot of goodies on your desk. I, too, have a pad of Graphic 45 papers, 'Le Romantique', and so far I have resisted using any of it - I just enjoy looking at it. Elizabeth x #96

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Sorry I'm so late getting here. I love Graphic 45. It is the ONE scrapbook paper I would consider buying. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment. I appreciate it and hope you'll come back to enter my OWOH giveaway.

Mommy said...

Wow what a great idea....I haven't made anything in a few weeks. Love seeing your desk shot and will have to see about doing this someday soon. Thanks for sharing...I have the grand calibur too and like buying one set of dies each month from cut@home with my 40% off coupon....makes for a pretty good deal on nestabilities etc. :)
