Whats on your workdesk Wednesday 126?

Wasn't I just writing to you about my desk yesterday?  Well here I am again.  A lot has happened on this desk in a week I can assure you!  Doesn't look like it right now, but I can show you the fruits of my labor so to speak...

My friend came to visit again on Friday and we managed to put 3 double spreads together for her wedding album, so maybe it won't take us a lifetime to do after all.  Unfortunately I did not take any pics of the pages we did before she whisked them off home to show her hubby who was returning from a long business trip this past week-end.

Here is the box of stuff all ready for the Make n Take I am running this coming Friday at my local Scrapbook shop.  I am teaching about 25-30 people from 10am - 12pm all about Tim and Ranger's products and they are going to get a hands on chance to create with paint dabbers, distress inks, distress stains, color washes and alcohol inks.  I am also going to be using Archival inks, Adirondack inks and some distress powders as well as some clear embossing powders.  So quite a lot to get through in one 2 hour session...

Also on the Vagabond is the tag die and next to it are the packets of 12 cut tags and the piles on top of card stock ready to go through to make a total of 20 packs for the 12 Tags of Christmas I am teaching in JHB on the 17 December.

So as you can see lots of prepping and not much creating going on here.  I hope to get this all done and dusted then I can go back to doing something for my scrapbooks!

It was my sons 7th Birthday on Monday so the week-end was dedicated to his party and family time.  He asked for cash from his friends so he could go shopping for what he really wanted which was a Mario Galaxy game for the Wii and an electric train track.  So far we have the Mario game...  Not much crafting was done by me... Something to be remedied this week-end I hope!

Now it is time to do the great desk tango and hop all over the world starting at Julia's desk where she kindly hosts us all each and every week...except I see that Mrs Dunnit must have overslept, cos her desk is not up for viewing yet!

  12. Sounds like you are one busy woman this week. I spend twice as much(or maybe more time)when friends or family come to craft with me but it is always a lot more rewarding in the end. Desk looks great! Hope you have a great week. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #68
