What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #209 - Snip, Snip, Snippets

Not such an impressive desk, actually I'm not sure what to call it....Maybe just IT.
I will be honest...not much happening on this desk.  I've kind of come to it, dropped things I've been working with, not on, and moved on to another location.  I did finish one of the projects I was, and the word to concentrate on is WAS going to take with me, but I am 98% not happy with it, and though it is now finished, I will not be taking it with me.  I will however, re-make it when I come home.  It is a project that in my head looked wonderful, however, when I actually started making it, nothing went well....soooooo that said, sometime in the future, you will see it....I hope!

There are lots of talented folk who have completed fabulous projects and they are bravely showing their desks and proudly showing their finished creations...Ms. Julia gives us all a place to meet on Wednesday to share what we have or have not done.  So....check out Julia's desk and then  click around to see what everyone else is doing.  Start here.  Before you go, let me tell you some of the amazing items on my desk...a pencil....ohhhhhh, a ruler.....ahhhhhh.  TV remotes, an envelope that held an amazing card from my friend Dee Dee (I'd post it, but I will have to take a photo later.)  My Weight Watcher calculator.  Now why is that on my craft desk....I have no idea!  A jar with some gold leaf things that were given to me by a neighbor, some glitter that I think might belong to my friend Brenda W.  Brenda is this yours?  And the protective covering pieces from double stick tape.  What an exciting desk!

So, now what have I done that actually went well.  Well, let me show you......
Monday is our girls group crop.  I have been so busy getting ready for my vacation, I really hadn't planned what I would work on  I grabbed the box I took last week and pulled out some of the scraps left from my Graphic 45 Bird Song collection.  I had quite a few bits and pieces.  And one piece that was large enough to use to frame the out and inside of this card.  I like using pockets with tag pieces for the inside of my cards.  One reason is the cards can be recycled by simply placing a new tag inside.  The card stock is mostly pink and I love framing pink with brown.  .  So that's it.  This is my snippet card for the week.  Di has been partying the week away, but managed to sneak into the playground to check on the unruly gang.  Want to see what she found?  Check here.

I've put my little card into the mail.  My friend Thelma should be getting it soon.  She's having a birthday soon, and to ease her into her 91st year, I'm sending her a card a week until the big day. 

Speaking of birthdays....today is my daughter's birthday.....HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMY!  Wishing you a most happy day!  I know she'll be having a fun weekend with my sweet son-in-law.  Enjoy your weekend!

I'm off for now.  Heading out to see what everyone's been up to.  Have a wonderful week. 
Hugs to all,

  6. that's quite a mixture on your desk today but i guess we all have times when we just 'dump and go'. I love that pretty paper you have used for the tag card. Lovely card altogether. Kate x #33

  8. I've had that happen too -- great ideas in your head and than either can't quite interpret it or doesn't turn out like you had hoped. Brigita #113

  11. Hi Mary, thank you for visiting me and leaving such a lovely comment, which has enabled me to visit you in return. I love the ohhhhh's and ahhhhh's in the comments about what's on your desk, though you neglected to mention the beautifully formed waste from your sticky dots and the delightful 'pins in cork' creation to the back of your desk.lol Really like the wallet card from last week and the great pics of the fury caterpillar and hummingbird how lovely to have them on your door step, so to speak.
    Have a great weekend
    Happy art making
    Hugs Lottie #45
