WOYWW 182 and more!

I'm back!  We got home Sunday evening and I have yet to get into playing at my desk.  And today, being Wednesday, is the day you get to look at my desk and see the mess!  Oh my... yes, it's messy! I had my overhead light on but it's still dark, but then, I took this picture last night and as of this morning, nothings changed!


I have a new OTT light!  Got it at Walmart for about $26. I am working on some card samples for a December 10 class at the AZ Scrapbooking store in Green Valley, AZ. And hopefully I'll get the clutter cleaned up and have a bit more organization when I get my samples done... yeah, right!  Anyway, the "fun" view is compliments of Julia over at the Stamping Ground.  She started this 182 weeks ago!  Check out her blog for more desks to view and even her post for week 181 for a bit of history!

I gave those plate candle holders to my stepdaughter and son's girlfriend.  At first they were trying to figure out what they were but then Cassidy's brain started smoking and you could see her eyes light up!  She has all kinds of ideas for decorating the plates or using them to hold goodies for entertaining!  Then Marci got going.  It was truly fun watching them chatter back and forth about what to do!  Well, I got started on mine but I need to get the votive holder for the top.  I found a little bell which is now glued inside the bottom glass....


It's funny how the top plate looks larger than the bottom but they are the same size!!  Here's a closer look at the little bell.  I still need to clean off some excess glue around the glasses...


I'll post the finished project when I get what I need.  Since all these were made for inside use I used E6000 glue.  Worked pretty good!

So leave a comment and check out the Stamping Ground!  Thanks for not abandoning me while I was with our kids!

Hope you like your Ott Light - I have been really thinking about getting one - I'm fine during the day but at night I get a shadow when I color. Love the plate candle holder - great idea and I can see it used for a couple of different things.

I love how the little bell is inside the glass! What are you using for the glue? E6000?
