What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #392

What’s on my Workdesk?  Well, I’ve been having some serious mojo problems lately.  I’ve been trying to get some Christmas cards made for a while now.  But I’m just having a lot of trouble sitting down and concentrating on doing them.

So I thought I would change “workdesks”.  I brought my scrappy stuff up to my Inlaws kitchen table.  I thought it might help get me going.  Well, I took almost a week!  Then I finally just turned on some Christmas music to get me into the mood and sat down and started creating!


I managed to get twelve cards done!  I was quite proud of myself.  But I still have about six more to make.

I don’t know why I do this to myself.  For the last few years I’ve posted on my Facebook to my friends asking who would like a handmade Christmas card from me.  I didn’t want to spend a lot of time making a card for someone that didn’t want one.  Well, I ended up getting way more response than I expected.  Each year I get almost 30 responses!  Yikes!  What did I get myself into?

And of course they can’t be just any kind of cards.  I really have to put my all into them.  Hopefully I can finish them BEFORE Christmas!

So that’s my mess for this week!  Lol!  Please check out the other talened ladies over at The Stamping Ground.

It’s been another busy few weeks.  Had a short visit with my son, too.  Just got home last night.  And it’s now time for another What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday!

I don’t really have a workdesk to show you this week.  I haven’t had a chance to clean it off yet.  But I did do some shopping, though, while I was up visiting my son.  I started my Christmas cards and needed some extra stamp sets.


Last year I sent out a message to my Facebook friends to see who would like a handmade card from me.  Surprisingly I got a LOT of replies!  So this year I’m preparing a little earlier just in case I get those numbers again.  I didn’t have a lot of Christmas-type stamps, so I took a little trip to Michaels and used up some of my many Michaels gift cards (my friends know me so well, don’t they).  I also needed some sequins because…well…who doesn’t need sequins, right?  And that date-style stamp I got from Winners because I had a gift card there, too!  🙂

I can’t wait to see what my crazy creative mind comes up with for these.  I’ve done a few cards already.  I’ve been using Pinterest for inspiration.  All that pinning has got to be put to use somehow, right?  (Giggle)

As I’m typing this post, it is almost one in the morning!  Sheesh!  If I’m to get any card making done tomorrow, I better get some sleep.  At least I will after I finish watching A Haunting on TV.  Yes, I like those scary kind of shows.  Anything about ghosts.  Anyway…

Last minute quick, easy Halloween costume idea!

With Halloween creeping up on us, are you at a loss for a Halloween costume?  Do you need a quick, easy Halloween costume idea?  I thought I would share with you how I decorate T-shirts using a freezer paper stencil, and a cutting machine.  In my video I’ll show you a couple more variations that I created.


I hope you liked the tutorial.  Question for you:  What’s your favorite Halloween costume that you’ve ever worn?


What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #384


Well…its been a rough week or so.  Dad (In Law) took a tumble while walking back from a grocery store.  He thought he was a spring chicken still, so he walked three very long blocks using only his cane (he has a walker).  He made it there, but tripped on a curb on the way back.  Someone called the ambulance.   (more…)
