What's on your workdesk Wednesday? 116



Hello fellow desk hoppers, and a good day to you! Mine is already going pear shaped and it is only 7:30am! I just blew the clutch on my car so have had to call on the services of my mom to get me to work and a student to take me home. That is this morning sorted, now to start working on getting my car towed in to Renault!


But over to more exciting things! Here is my desk after last nights card making session where I have started to make Christmas cards already. I read Julia's post yesterday which debated how long is too long to make a card and have been mulling this over. It is an interesting concept. I guess with me it all depends on if I am experimenting with punches and dies or inks etc and not really worried about the time, but enjoying the learning process or trying to do a card or scrapbook page for a class, then it becomes about the money and time is money, therefore I need to get my A into G and move it!

Oh and the pile of 12"x12" canvasses in the right hand corner of the photo is the next project I have to work on for my samples using all Tim Holtz products. I am really enjoying this new venture and also have to make another 6 tag samples for displays. I used this as a good excuse to purchase the Stamper Anonymous set of "Stuff to Say" which has really wise and thought provoking sentiments. You can see it in the top left hand corner of my desk.

Well I guess I better get of this computer and onto the phone to get my car sorted...

For those of you who have no idea why I have been rambling on about my desk, pop over to Julia's desk at Stamping Ground and see what it is all about.

  8. Lordy - you're right..when I do cards for workshops, they don't take too long..my customers like to make more than one in a two hour paid workshop! And you're right again - I can see the SA stamps, but I can't 'see' them.....show and tell!
