What's on My Workdesk Wednesday 259? Demo Kits

Hello there fellow Desker!  Welcome to my desk over in Cape Town, South Africa!

a LOT has been going on on this desk the past week!
Changing this card kit above to the scrap page below on Sunday.
 Monday night: 
Making strawberry baskets (SVG Cuts) My hubby was testing the big camera lens he had just fixed (so nice to have a techi type DH he ordered the parts on line and did it while watching a Youtube had gone into the shop for repairs and came out the same as before for a huge sum of money!)  I had used the lens so much I had worn out the focus sensor!!! 

 This is me kitting up 8 baskets for future use 
Below is my desk as it stands this morning after kitting yesterday for the Tim Holtz technique demo I am running on Friday and Saturday for 20 peeps. 
We have an allocated power shut down for maintenance today, so not sure if I will get to many desks till later...



  1. You sure have been busy!! and a handy hubby too... have a great time at the classes while we crop! we'll be thinking of you. Helen 8

  2. It's good to have a hubby who knows how to get things done. I have a Bleubeard who only knows how to purr (grin).

    I'm in awe of those kits. It must take a lot of time and effort to get it done.

    Power shut down? Sounds devastating, especially if you need it for things like AC. But yo8u are in Autumn, so that might not be a problem where you live. Happy WOYWW from #2.

  3. LOVE how you changed the card kit to a scrapbook page .... Fantastic!
    Thank you for the visit already

  7. That's clever how you changed the kit into the page...great idea! And I just adore that little strawberry basket, so cute and useful for so many occasions, I should think!!
    If you could get to the Crop next year, then that would be wonderful!
    Hugs, LLJ 21 xx

  11. Hello there
    Just loving your strawberry basket there.
    Funny but we had a power shortage last week - all day. Lucky I was in work.
    Got your ATC yesterday, thank you.

  12. OMG! Those strawberry baskets are too cute!!! And I love your page conversion too.
    Your ATC has already that die. Thank you so much! Have a great rest of the week.

  13. Hi Bella
    What a great idea to swap out a card kit and make such a stunning layout love it !!! and how long do you all lose power for that is a shame to be without but kind of good to forces you to do other things Happy WOYWW hugs Nikki
    I thought the cow was too cute not to use :)

  14. I think that strawberry basket is about the cutest thing ever! I noticed your Martha scoreboard. I love mine so much, I went out and got the mini version of that scoreboard, and I think I love it even more! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #22

  15. That strawberry basket is so, so cute, clever you. Hope the workshop goes well. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy WOYWW

  17. Love the baskets. That's a lot kitting going on. 20 peeps for a TH demo...I'll be right over! :) One does tend to forget not everyone lives as we do in the states...a power shut down?! Hope you're have decent weather so you can enjoy the peace and calm brought by the power shut down. :) :D Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #10 p.s. not sure if I commented the cards below/above and the way we rearranged for the LO for the scrapbooker.

  18. I am so glad I never have to "kit" - esp. after Julia's admission earlier in the week LOL! Love the basket, cute as can be. As is your ATC - it hadn't arrived when I saw your comment this morning, then the day got away from me, with DS coming home and a few minor catastrophes that needed dealing with (we ALSO had a scheduled outage that I forgot about - 2nd one in two weeks! argh!) but now it HAS arrived. Yours will be in the mail when I drop off the dolls and my official swap ATC. Thanks - and love the card too. Great image.

    Happy near 5 year WOYWW!

  24. Fab cards and great baskets Bella.
    Must tell you, tv is my way/our way of spending time together in the evening. We each have our own space in the house during the day but like to sit together in the evening for thrillers like the one I mentioned. Guess we might not see one another much if we didn't LOL.
    Hugs and thanks for visiting me earlier.

  25. Bella, your strawberry baskets are GORGEOUS!!! I wish I lived close enough to take a class!!! I LOVE the double layout you made from the card kit too...brilliant!

    The food cards I made for my daughter's bridal shower really came in handy! And the baked brie with balsamic cherries and french bread chunks....OMG...BEST. SNACK. EVER!!
