What's on Your Workspace #159


It's time again for What's on Your Workspace Wednesday. I haven't been able to submit for the last few weeks due to the craziness of the end of the school year but here I am now with a little backwards action. I took the photo this morning before I got down to the business of working on my dad's birthday card. When I finished it, I posted about it, so you'll actually find the card in the post before this one.

This post will just be about the mess desk in the studio. The large pile with squatter's rights on the left side of my desk is all types of baby-themed papers. It is there to shame me into making a few more needed baby books. The pretty flower topped accordion file is there because of my latest hair-brained idea to use it for small scraps. I do tend to use them for the "Made By..." stamps that I put on the back of my cards. A few Paper Smooches stamp sets are lolly-gagging about. I have a monthly subscription so there is never a lack of them around. The pretty brown card in the center of the desk is one of Hallmark's finest. I loved the design of it so I used it as inspiration for my dad's card. What looks like a big blue bloodshot eye in the top right corner is actually a wooden tortoise's shell. It decorates the top of a perennial block calendar that is showing the number "14". I guess I should change it to "20", huh? Lol. Finally, those pretty flowery paper is from a recently found set called Cutie Pie from Stampin Up. Recently found in my stash, that is. Lol.

Thanks for coming by. I did say that a baby card is next on deck. Watch for it coming soon.

Lots of interest on your desk. Your link was wrong, so I suspect you might not get very many comments. I managed to track down the right post, thankfully. Thanks for the opportunity of having a peep at your workspace - trying to make a few visits early this week! Hazel, WOYWW #87 x

Like your blog it is interesting and I love the way you have a go at yourself in jest. I think we are all like that is some way or another. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Cindy! Great desk space this week - you've made me chuckle with your descriptions. and the hippo card in the previous post too - the idea of a peanut butter and jelly throwdown is funny!

Sorry I'm a bit late getting round...
