WOYWW # 337

these are of course tuesday early evening shots rather than Wednesday am. this no light thing is really cutting into play time around here. If you'd like to play along with us this blog hop starts here at our hostess Julia's blog

I had some happy mail arrive and there really isnt a whole lot of time to play with it right now, today will be a hauling things from the barn to the garage for the booth set up Thursday night. ( so, it all has to be dusted and such too) 

Knowing that I did go upstairs for a couple of hours tuesday after work this is the off to the left view, and I dont know if I mentioned it before but, I took all those larger than square sized dies that were in the avery elle pockets out of that basket off the table a few weeks ago and put them into a metal file drawer ( that is big enough for A-7) and that freed up another 6" of space on the table. 

 piles of scraps that extend off the table past the cutting space over the top of the basket filled with embossing folders on that rolling cart.

 so, its probably a compulsion of some kind or another but, I find that when I do start cleaning up scraps and things, some of them become very simple gift cards while I am cleaning. this one is 3 1/2" square and all the ones below are all 3" square cards.

 that used up a bunch of scraps.

 some more of those wooden snowflakes that got glittered a couple of weekends ago.

the bitty wooden flake in the center on this batch is a SU one. so, it's a bit more delicate and a little smaller than the Micheal's ones. I am going to shoot some views into the containers heading to the school tomorrow night later. :) and I almost have the table cleared off when I quit last night. which is good I ordered some December daily things and plan to do that again this year. (just need an album, I have lots of stuff and pages) I even picked up one of those fuse tools and hope to play with it sometime next month too. I will probably have a posted in advance shot next week and no real way to link it up.

Now that's my girl - clearing up and then finding a use for the scraps you cant throw away, and may I say brilliant results. I take it the reindeer is for Christmas. Don't let the clearing up get in the way too much but I know what it's like when you can't see the wood for the trees. x Jackie #21

Great job on making all those gift cards out of scraps. Looks like you have some fun new things. You are always up to so much how do you have time to play?!

Well, for one thing, it is nice to see someone else's desk isn't neat. I am tired of looking at all these cleaned off area. Because mine is not neat. How can you be crafting if your desk is all cleaned off! :) Well, I know it inspires you to craft, but once you begin crafting it is a mess again. Great job recycling. #52
