WOYWW #217

Just my desk this week...but if you want to see what I made when I made the mess then check out my previous post. :)
Oh, why show you my desk? Because that's the name of this game! :) Ask Julia at Stamping Ground all about it and see lots more desks...go on, it's fun! :) A few are even messier than mine! :)
And now you want to know where my desk is, huh? lol It's under there. Promise! :)
Got a melt pot this week, still haven't played with it yet. Please tell me your favorite thing to do with it in the comments, would you? Thanks! Have a great WOYWW and week everyone! :)

Diorama's and Some CASE cards...

Thanks to Split Coast Stampers I discovered diorama's and made a few, that I intend to keep! And one for give away. :)

This is the one to give away...

I plan to make a bunch more of these, they are so fun!
And thank you Pinterest for inspiring are the inspiration photo's and my copies:

Top is mine, bottom is inspiration...

Obviously very loosely copied...
And since I can't figure out how to get the words down where I wanted them I'll just sign out here! :)@Kalyn - Paper Crafts magazine

WOYWW #216

Hello lovely blog browsing beauties! :) Here for WOYWW? Julia dear sent you? Isn't she a doll? :) If you don't know what I'm rambling on about go check it out here: Stamping Ground. Here is my desk today:
Actually that's the area to the left of where I sit when I papercraft. It only seemed fair to show you that side since I showed you the other side and behind me last week. :) Now here is my desk today:
Here is the card I was working on...for fun. :)
Here is one I made earlier this week as I was trying to get some of my "inspirational" Pins to actually inspire me! lol :) But actually I think it is quite fitting seeing as how there was a royal birth so very recently...
That's it for me this week! Hope everyone has a great WOYWW and week. :)

WOYWW #215

Hello and welcome to my blog! :) If you came here via the ever fabulous Julia from Stamping Ground then you'll be wanting to see my desk, huh? I have several pics this week...
I dug out my card blanks/bases and worked on them, getting several gussied up. ;) That is, I embellished them. :) Hey, here is the reason I call it a craft cave:
My swiveling chair, with behiney in it, usually resides in that 2-3 foot wide space. Well, everything is right at hand. Or it is as I swivel. :) Someday I may clean this room out of the stuff that is just being stored in here and have more room. But I do like that everything is so close at hand...hmmm. Anyways, next are several cards, newly embellished and ready to roll:

Well, that's enough of that for now. But here is an anniversary card I made up, fresh, Friday last. It's one of those multi-fold thingies. :) Can you believe I had to find the directions again? It's been a year since I made one of these! And then the directions were so simple I felt stupid for not remembering them, oh well. :)
I did manage to give away or otherwise liberate myself of around 50 cards over the weekend! Now there is space for me to create more! :) Hope everyone has a fab WOYWW and many thanks to those who contributed their opinions on burlap v.s easel. I couldn't decide so I went with both! :)

WOYWW #214 and more cards! :)

Yep. Had a "productive" week and finished lotsa cards. :) And thanks to Julia over at Stamping Ground you get to see my desk and my cards. ;)
Mess, glorious mess! :) Most of that I got out to make the (unfinished) card in the center of the picture. Don't worry, I did get it finished and have a pic, at the end. :) And more finished cards...

Here is the card I was working on when I took the picture of my desk, which got worse before the card was finished, believe it or not! lol :)

So do you like the pictures better on the easel against the messy background or on the distressed burlap looking stuff? Well, let me know in the comments if you have an opinion and thanks for stopping by, as always. Hope you have a wonderful week y'all! :)

WOYWW #213 and completed cards...

Hello all! I missed you last week...did you miss me? lol :) Well, I'm making it for What's on your workdesk, Wednesday? Hostessed by the ever fabulous Julia over at Stamping Ground, where you can also see tons more desks by some crazy talented crafters! Don't forget; if you want to see the pictures bigger just click on them and they will fill the screen, full size like. :)
Here is my jewelry desk this week:
And here is my papercrafting desk this week:
And here is a bevy of cards I have completed in the last few weeks...

Some of my completed swing style cards...well, that's what I call them! lol 

The next 3 are the same card, just opened in different ways, and then shut for mailing...

Several of these "love" sorts will be given to my married friends who are girls, for their dear hubbies...

It seems masculine enough, right? :) I mean, I only put 1 bow on it! lol
That's it for me this week...hope you enjoyed and have a wonderful WOYWW! :)
Also, for my fellow American's, please enjoy a safe and fabulous 4th of July...
Happy Independence Day y'all! ;)
