What's On Your Workspace Wednesday 66
Normally, I try to use WOYWW to inspire me to create something at this desk and then show it to you but today I have to show you what the desk looks like after I created yesterday's card (seen above as well). I'm just a little pressed for time this week so you have to check yesterday's post for the card.
Items of interest:
Can't live without Glue dots. I just don't trust my tape runners enough. The red tape runner on the desk, I can proudly say came from a dollar store. When I saw that the store actually had a scrapbooking/card making tool in quantity, I bought the quantity! lol. They are a little aggressive with paper (they won't give it back if you try to pull something back up, but I like that...they're feisty.) Still...a glue dot must chaperone when a card is being made.
The flowered box holds the cards you see in front of it plus many more of their friends. It comes from a kit called Project Life by Becky Higgins (of Creating Keepsakes fame). It encourages one to take a photo everyday for a year and journal about it. I'm trying to do it, hence the cards on the desk. I used to keep a little journal for jotting stuff down but I find it is much more efficient to write directly on the cards and put them in the album to wait for the photos to be developed.
The kraft envelope is the Unity stamp I used for the card. (Yesterday's post details that.)
The stars to the left of the stamp envy are actually foam dots that I picked up at a Ranger warehouse sale. There's one every year. You take a big bucket (that they provide) and you have a cordoned off area of their warehouse to peruse. Fill the bucket and then pay $4 a pound for your goodies. I've found that foam dots take up space but don't weigh alot so I try to get lots of those. I've also tended to get lots of stamp pads that I don't need so I think I need to start giving away blog candy. Hee hee. I can't make the sale this year which is okay because I've done okay for the past two sales. I can sit one out.
The little Altoids box isn't a sweet treat. It's being recycled as a holder of small charms like the gold heart that's on my card.
Sorry for the long post but I'm going to make it just a bit longer because a very nice commenter on my post last week said she tried "for ages" to see my alphabet list for the baby book. Here's the list. I'm sure there will be more words added because I want to come up with more that are better for a baby book. Thanks for looking this week!
