WOYWW # 547

Good morning friends!  Here we are the day before Thanksgiving in the States and I'm getting ready for lots of parades, dog shows and football tomorrow and maybe even a bit of crafting!  If you have stumbled here and are wondering why I'm showing a photo of my desk it's because it's Wednesday and that is what we do.  If you would like to join in just blog about your desk and link up to Julia's blog.  Julia is the creator and hostess of this little bit of madness and we love her for it.  She has all linking instructions on her blog so come join in!

I've begun using the push back method again just so you know... it's beginning to be kinda cluttered at the back with little things that just need to be put away.  I've been making envelopes for my Christmas cards and the white strips are embossed snowflakes that will be glued to the outside of said envelopes just to add a festive look!  I haven't been feeling very crafty lately so I decided to work on some of the little things that have to happen before I can mail my cards.  It has sort of gotten me into the notion to do some flower making.

That's it for me today.  I'm off to link up and visit a few of my fellow deskers before my day begins!

WOYWW #545....

Good morning everyone!  Its once again Wednesday and the day I share my workdesk. If you would like to join in, you will find us all agreeable and none of us bite!  You can head over to Julia's blog for instructions on how to link your blog. 

It is 18 degrees here this morning with a little bit of snow on the ground so we are all just trying to stay warm.  It's kind of unusual weather for November but we seldom see snow and I was happy to see it. 

Now on to my desk:

Not much going on here...just some bits still needing to be put away from my last kleenex box I made.  The pens are Krylon gold and sliver leaving pens (new) that I use to edge cards or flowers to give a festive look. 

Next up is the Christmas card I made using my foiling machine.  The photo isn't showing the pretty shine from the foil but the sentiment is what is foiled. 

I had some gold cardstock so I used that for my card layering and some holly leaves from Heartfelt Creations.  This one will mail easily with no extra postage.

Well that's it for me this morning.  I'm off to link up and visit as many of you as I can today.

Tiny Shepherds....

Good Monday morning my friends!  I hope you had a great weekend and that you are ready to begin your week.  Our weather here in East Tennessee has been a continuing roller coaster day we are 65 and the next we have highs in the 30's.  The weather is forecasting snow showers for tomorrow with a high of 35 after we reach mid-sixties today!  That should be interesting!

I'm here this morning to share another Heartfelt Creations Christmas card featuring the Booklet Frames and Basics dies.  This card is inspired by a video Emma Lou Beechy did on the Heartfelt Creations Facebook Group a few days ago.  These dies are becoming my go to dies for all kinds of cards.  I can't seem to get enough of using them...there are so many possibilities! 

I actually have finished making my Christmas cards for this year.  Next on my agenda is making envelopes to fit.  That shouldn't take too long then I will be back on box duty; I'm almost finished with all the goodie boxes and I'm moving right along with the kleenex boxes too. 

In the coming days I will share with you the final Christmas cards and then we will move on to new projects.  I love spending time in my Craftroom,,,it keeps my mind and hands busy and out of trouble.

What's On Your Workdesk? Week #544...

Well another week has come and gone since I last visited with you but we have come to the middle of the week again!  I'm always happy to get to visit with you and spend time pilfering around your craft space!  I'm just a snoop at heart.  If you would like to join us just head over the Julia's blog and have a look around.  She has instructions for linking to her blog so you can become part of the blog hop. 

Although my desk is kind of messy, there isn't a lot going on...just working on another tissue box cover for the nursing home.  I need to make several more.  I have been sort of slow to getting these done but I've been doing some winterizing and I spread some grass seed to help my front yard.  We had a wind storm come through several days ago and I had lots of limbs down in the back so I had to get those to the street for pick up.  I've been moving outside cushions to the basement for winter storage and just getting ready for cold temps.

The kleenex box cover here will be for a man so no flowers for it.  I would rather work on boxes for ladies so I can add flowers but the guys have to blow too! LOL...

Well ladies that does it for me this week.  I'm off to link up and visit as many of you as I can!
