well, this is what I left the table looking like on Sunday evening ( on purpose knowing I wanted a mug shot on wednesday ) how bad is that? I am laughing at my self just a little bit, but under construction are some spool shaped card bases done in kraft with a free template I found on pinterest a few years ago ( you can snag one here) and this is a trace it by hand pattern ( I did blow mine up on a copy machine until it was almost A-2 sized then traced the pattern to an old file folder and kept it to trace around) . and I then stamped the sanded background on the kraft with some cocoa Memento. ( these were set aside to dry) in the below shot also there is some random not smooth Neenah that was spritz with some Heidi Swapp mister sprays off the top of my head I forgot what they are called but one was teal and the other was a seafoam color and they have a little bit of a shimmer. The SU stamp box full of sentiments needing diecut has not gone down during the last two weeks. maybe later after the booth. 

If you'd like to play along here is a link to Julia's blog where you can read about it and see everyone else's desks who is playing this week. 

well that handy basket for scraps ended up being a dump situation so, I cleaned up all the scraps and put them away like I used to ( which makes me happier plus, I may use them up that way) I found I did not want to dig in this basket so, then it was just handing there empty and I remembered I had stencils buried in the closet somewhere (because, I bought two of her sets HS) and so for the moment they are all in here together ( I don't know how long that will last I seriously do not like to dust things each week so, most the open containers are covered with old towels and I just move the towels to get to what I know is under them.

Thanks for the peek and for the comment on my area. You asked how I would use those Gelli prints. I was thinking of cutting them down to size and using for backgrounds on cards. I would stamp on them, or layer on them. Who knows? :) You know I am just playing!

I think our desks will always under construction because we continue to add to our supplies. That's good though. I am not good at learning how to resizing things. Diane #111

that's an awesome idea for stencil storage! I'm keeping mine in a huge 12 x 12 scrapbook binder thing, but it's a pain to get them out of it.

Hi Stacy,

Boy, I hate dusting too! I have my stencils in one of the drawers of my salvaged dresser. It might be time that I share the dresser and the closet, where most of my supplies are.

The photo of your desk looks nice and organized!

As for the bird feeder; yes, the sun faded it so I decided it needed a good touch up. I found some other spray paint that I have so may use that on the flowers. I can't wait for the days to get longer so I can actually do things outside once I'm home from work.

Thank you for visiting me already!
Happy belated WOYWW

Yep, I get it, am almost at the stage of wanting to chuck out my scraps and start again, but really,I can't and won't, they are too good...but the thought of keep diving in ..ugh. I think on the whole though, you are very very organised!

Thanks for popping over to my desk. I had to have a major tidy earlier in the week as I could not get in my craft room to work! So hard to throw things away.
