What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #11

Over the past week, I've taken a couple of classes at our local scrapbook store, however there are little bits I need to do to complete the class projects. So, today my craft table has an assortment of projects waiting to be finished.


On the left, that pile with the yellow flowers contains four cards, each partially completed. That long one on top is an accordion-type card. The brown blocks have all been decoupaged with stamped paper, but I want to put another coat of decoupage on them before adding the tacks that will hold the Happy Easter tags I created during another class. In the center of the table are some trading cards that Robbie picked up at a recent card show. At some point these cards were obviously adhered into an old album, and I'm slowing working on getting the remaining paper off the backs. There's also a little package of purple stencils that I want to try out in my journaling Bible.


You can also see my small tool tote that I use to carry a few supplies to classes and such. There are a few extra things in there that I want to put back in my carousels before I put it away. I'm hoping to get these items cleared off by tomorrow as I have edited and ordered more photos for the custom scrapbook-for-hire project I have in progress.

Remember those vision boards I was working on when my desk was all messy a couple of weeks ago? I finished those up and shared them in a blog post HERE.

Joining in today with Julia at Stamping Ground for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. What's on your workdesk this week?

My very first thought was WOW you have so much flat space to create in, then I kept reading and seen you scrap and thought ah-ha... :) ( I don't really do much of that anymore but, I remember laying two 12" sheets side by side for perspective and was having a V-8 moment haha. :)
I am curious to see how the blocks will turn out. thanks for the earlier visit, ~Stacy #42

Melissa, firstly thank you for popping by my desk, and now here I am with you, I have a theory, when making cards a clean desk is an absolute must? I can think of no other explanation for the disparity between your neatness and my - quite frankly - chaotic work pit... . I do hope you enjoy finishing your bits, they look very enticing and I'm sure you will be drawn into adding to them until they are complete, Dx @43

Even with a lot of projects, your desk is well-organized. Mine, of course, is neat as a pin since I cleaned it before we left on our trip!

You are always a busy crafty lady. I see you are employing my all-time fave tool - Undu. It is a miracle worker. Did I ever share with you that I use Undu to clean the covers of used books I acquire?

You certainly have lots of projects on the go. I love those carousels they seem really handy. Sarah #26

Getting the paper off the back of those trading cards truly is a labour of love!
