WOYWW #191

Hey y'all! It's that time of the week again...What's on your workdesk Wednesday? The ever so fabulous Julia from Stamping Ground got this party started so here are the pics of what's on my desk today:
What's all that?! Yee! It's my goodies from Joann's online! They just got here this afternoon! I got a pile of new stamps I am excited to use and a few more TH ink pads and reinkers, in colors I didn't have yet. They run a super sale on TH ink pads and can even get the limited color reinkers for $2.99 each! Of course I didn't figure that out until after this order so another one is winging crawling its way to me! I am very thankful they offer free shipping, because if I had to pay to get something a week and a half after I ordered it, I might not be thankful! :) I shouldn't complain though, I think the international folks have to wait that long or more as a standard wait time! Ugh, right? Who says we don't have any patience?! :) So next pic is what I have actually been doing craftwise for the last 2 weeks...drumroll please...
Ta Da! That is over 100 cards! They aren't all fully completed, most are just readied to the point of adding a sentiment and appropriate embellishments. They are all inked, though, with some corners having received special cuts and whatnot. This means I now have a stock of cards ready for last minute because I forgot spur of the moment events! :) Plus I got a few bookmarks started. I think they might make a nice inclusion in some of my future cards or something. Anyways, thanks for stopping by and have a super week!

WOYWW #190

Almost missed it, I did! :) Missed what? What's on your workdesk Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Julia Dunnit over at Stamping Ground! And here are the requisite desk shots:
Not too shabby this week...I'm having a bit of a tidy up and doing some fussy cutting of more embellishments, not that I don't have buckets of them around here! lol
Here is a bonus wide shot:
Yes, it is cozy, but my chair spins and rolls and everything is right at hand...or on the left hand, or behind me, or at my knee...and sometimes, rarely, I even have to get up to access stuff in the cabinets overhead. But not often! :) And because that desk shot was so tidy, I thought I would give those who love a mess a peek at my jewelry/hairbow desk:
It's a true disaster! :) Have to hop over to the linky party now, before midnight strikes! lol Hope everyone is having a lovely week. :)

Howdy bloggers! That's how you say "hi", if yer a cowgirl. Which I'm not. But I play one in the movies. ;)
So what you're really here for is to see my mess, and I do not disappoint!
Not this week, anyways. :) As always a humongous, a word that looks better spelled this way: hugemongus...I digress. A humongous thanks to the dear Julia Dunnit over at Stamping Ground for hostessing this most curious of all blog hops, the great grand snoop of the week, a.k.a. What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday! Go check it out and see lots more desks...and without further ado here is mine:
See my new Prima Songbird collection papers? (And the little stamp set there on the left?) Ooh, they are so lovely I have already made two card bases from one sheet and have started on another two bases from another sheet. You can see one in the background of the below pic, which is of an almost completed dress card. I think I still want to add a sentiment to the front or something...
This is the other baby boy card I've made for my mum to choose probably needs a sentiment on front, too, huh?
And here are my new Crafty Secrets stamp sets! They were totally on sale ;) and they are totally fabulous!
So, hopefully, I will have some more projects completed soon. If that silly schoolwork would stop getting in my way! Hope you all have a wonderful week and get lots of crafty and creative stuff done. :)

Just barely still WOYWW #188

Well, I made it this week and that's somethin', right? :) What have I made it to? You must go see Julia over at Stamping Ground for all the details and here are a few pictures of some things I have been doing over the last two weeks, since I totally  missed posting/joining last week. It was just too crazy around here! lol
It doesn't even look like I've been up to much, does it? :) I haven't been in this room too much the last few weeks, actually. But still I managed to get a few cards finished in two weeks. You'd think that would be plenty of time to at least get a few done, right? lol
This next card is one I made for my dear Sis to give to her husband, cause I know she thinks this sentiment fits him perfectly. :)
I don't know who this is for, but it sure was fun to make! The dress skirt just ruffles right off the just occurred to me the birds almost look like maybe they have made the dress, like in Cinderella, remember? And off the top of my head I do not remember where I downloaded the pattern from...but it was free! :)
This card was requested by my mom for a new baby boy in the fam, like a cousin or something...
Didn't make this and haven't even gotten to play with it yet because it just came in today, finally! I paid a ridiculously low price for it($5.99) but then that was made up for because I had to wait a ridiculously long time for it to get here! lol I hear you saying I needed to gain patience more than another crafty toy...and you are right! :)
Anyways, that's it for me this week...classes started today so...also Sunday evening we decided to install a walk-in pantry which involved demo (pleased my hammer swinging son to no end!) and then lots of cutting and measuring and moving all kinds of stuff all over the place so needless to say, but I will, my living room looks like a bomb hit it...but it's getting better because we finally got it all framed up, including the new door I framed in, and shelves put up so it's getting filled and my living room is getting makes me so happy! Which is a good thing because it has been a looooooooooot of work. A lot. Hope everyone is taking care and having wonderful visits all over the world! :)
