WOYWW #142 and a wonky birthday card

It's What's on Your Workspace Wednesday again and I have not one but two desks to show you. One is located in the post below this one. It shows you what my real studio looks like.

(The HB greeting comes from Party Posse.)To hang the image I used the brown twine that Kim ties around the stamp sets in your order. Crafty frugal, huh? Lol.



The inside is meant to make my old friend feel better.... it says: The more the candles, the more the wishes.

Do check out Julia's WOYWW blog for lots of fun desks to visit this week!
