What's On My Workdesk? I guess you'll have to check it out!

Well let's see.  There is a soda, and an Ipad with a blog page I'm looking at, and water, a tiny wood stove (electric, no mess) and Graphic 45 A Place In Time Cardstock.  I've been working in the family room, so that my honey and I can share time together while he watches whatever it is that boys watch (sports, music videos, re-runs that we've seen a zillion times before).  Of course right now, he's outside between rain storms blowing off the deck and driveway.  Pine trees have a way of making a mess and my dogs have a way of dragging it inside.  So, what am I working on?  Hop on over to Ms Julia's fantastic blog and see what she's been up too.  Then skip on through the list of all the fabulous desks and be inspired by Julia and the followers.  Check It Out Here

Richard made me a shadow box that has 12 - 4x4 partitions.  I've had it for quite awhile trying to be inspired by a paper line or bits and pieces of papers I have left over.  Like a little squirrel, I've been grabbing seasonal elements to put inside each area.  Well, long story short (sort of short),  Graphic 45 came out with a line called:  A Place In Time and I am now inspired to at least start, and hopefully finish my shadow box.  Without further ado.  Here is.....January
and here is....December
I have to tell you, when my 4 angels were little, we made the Christmas tree.  It hung on our tree for years probably about 30.  Every year a bit or two gets lost.  Well, it will now live in the shadow box and hopefully one of the kids will want the box when I go on to the scrapbook store in the sky! Below is the shadow box.  I think my honey did a fantastic job making it. 
I guess I should get back to it.  I am going to do  October and November next.  Why you ask?  The  horizontal partitions come out.  The bottom has to be built in place.  It's easier for me to get my chubby fingers inside with the shelf above removed....and now you know the rest of the story.   I used the 12x12 sheets to make the cut-outs.  Some pieces are more than one sheet was needed.  I'll have snippets coming out my ears,,,,they'll make cards for every month.  Not a bad deal is it? 

Wishing everyone a most Happy Thanksgiving.  No matter where you live, we all have something to be thankful for.  I am thankful for each and every one of you! 

Hugs to all,
Mary AKA:  Glitter Grammy
