WOYWW and New Digs


It's WOYWW (What's on Your Workspace Weds) time again and when I look at the state of this desk, I ask myself:

Should I put away the supplies that I used for the last card (left)?
Should I start on the Sketchbook Project that is due at the end of the month (near left)?
Should I get going on ds' Tim Holtz-inspired birthday card (center)?
Should I work on sis' birthday card?
The last one won out because I couldn't wait to get into my new stash of Paper Smooches (PS) goodies. (I've come to love these stamps so much, I signed up for the monthly sets... *smile*)

Backstory on the card.... Unlike my ds' card, which will have his age displayed in front, my sis' card doesn't require that anymore. In fact, unless it's a major milestone, who wants their age on the front of the card? But, she did just move into a house, so I thought it would be fun to wish her well on the first birthday that she is celebrating in the new place. Hence the sentiment.


I can hardly contain myself about the furniture stamp set. It's called Vogue Abode and it's 60's funkadelic. I feel like I'm playing with a virtual doll house. Think of the possibilities! (I made pleats on the lampshade with a little bar stamp in the set.)

The "happy birthday" and the little hamster cutie are from Party Posse. (I put a little rose in his hands.... eek!) The other individual letters came from Alphadot set. So easy to create your own sentiment in PS' classic font with this alpha set. (I even used a chain graphic from this set to make the pull chain on the lamp.) Three sets that worked great together!

Thanks for visiting. I hope you're having a good day and that maybe this little scene gave you a smile. (Especially my crooked little framed painting on the wall. Lol.)

Check back soon because my next post will be ds' birthday card (since his day falls on Sunday.)

Oh, and for more inspiration, hop over to Julia's WOYWW blog. People from all over the world post their crafty workspaces there.

I <3 your desk! And I <3 Paper Smooches, but I wouldn't use 100% of their sets, so I buy selectively. :)
