WOYWW #203 and S'Pin Cushions!

Hello lovely and creative peep's who've popped over from the Stamping Ground linky party! And everyone else, too, of course. ;) Thanks, as always, to the ever fabulous Julia over at Stamping Ground for hostessing this snoop. So, you're here to look at my desk and maybe a few projects? Well, here you are:
Ain't she a beaut? :) I am so tickled pink! Finally one of my paper pads of Prima's new Divine line came in! And I promptly sat down and made like 12 cards with it! Well, they aren't finished at all yet, but they are all started. Here is a pic of some of my washi tapes, too...
They have expanded from one yellow bin to 3 now! :0 But they are so fun and easy to use! :)
There are 3 of the Divine Prima card bases I made, and the next is just a close-up shot of one of those.
I plan to put on more embellishments and some bakers twine in a super soft pink color and probably some bling or glitter or both! lol Another close-up: 
I just love the papers in this line and I got the coordinating stamp set, too. Well, I *had* to, don'tcha know? The smaller images(like of the Victorian lady standing, pink strip, red chevron, etc.) are ATC bases from Paper Studio, just in at your local Hobby Lobby and on sale this week. You're welcome. ;)
Next are some fabric choices...
For what, you ask? For my new S'Pin Cushion creations! It's a pin cushion that you can spin the top off of...why would you do that? Because you can store your extra pins in the jar below, just super handy for when you need them. :)

Those are the 3 I mocked up the other day. I'm really pleased with them and how handy it will be to have all my extra pins so nearby, instead of in a drawer or box elsewhere, and so prettily displayed, too. Thinking of selling them, too. Anyone have any input or comments?
Well, I better get on with this and post it and link it and get to seeing some desks! Hope everyone is having a wonderful, creative and fantastic week. :)

WOYWW #202

Warning: picture heavy post! I missed this fun blog hop last week and was determined not to miss it this week so here I am! Thanks, as always, to the hostess with the mostest, Julia at Stamping Ground! Go see her to find out what I'm talking about and to see more creative messes and "makes". ;) Here is my desk:
Really the yellow on that card is not that bright...hmm, well, anyways, that's the paper desk today. In my chair is my album of small stamp sets. Otherwise there is just lots of stuff on the desk. :) 
This is my jewelry desk, cleaned and recently reorganized with those fab billion drawer thingies. :) And I put in a new narrow shelf right above them, moved the pink basket over to the left side of the desk, since I'm right-handed it made more sense. What else...just generally tidied it, it was a disaster! :) Next are a few pendants I was working on...(not finished for the most part, either).
Thank you card:
Card blank/base:
You're a Dear card:
Queen of hearts/love card:
Blank card/base...probably a sympathy card, though...
Card bases/blanks:

I added washi tape and other embellishments to some pretty fab papers for those blanks, which while they aren't finished are at least at a point where I think I could quickly add something like a sentiment and they are ready to roll. Hope you all have a lovely week and enjoy the blog linky party. :)

WOYWW #200

What a nice round number, huh? And it's all about what's on your workdesk Wednesday...which, thanks to the lovely Julia Dunnit over at Stamping Ground, means we get to show off our messes desks. :) Here is a shot of mine from earlier this week:
And it got worse before it got better! lol Here is a close-up of the bottle caps I've been working on. They will become parts of necklaces, I think.
Here are a few cards, from some new paper, I worked on last night...blank for future filling in. 
And playing with my hexagon dies again...and some new paper. 
And here is my desk shot from today, actual Wednesday shot:
And some new stamps I scored at Micheal's. Except for the 3 ladies ads stamps the others all cost only .50$ each. Aren't they cute? I even know just the paper to use with them, and vaguely where it is! :)
Thanks for stopping by and seeing all my mess and creative endeavors from the last few days or so. I'm hoping to make a bunch of necklaces this week so hopefully I will be able to show you that next week instead of the same old boring desk! :)
Have a great one!
