WOYWW 203 And More Chicken Wire

Ah..... Wednesday.  A great day to hop around viewing great desks on crafters' desks and get fun ideas and inspiration.  This tour is courtesy of Julia D on the Stamping Ground blog.  I don't get a lot of looking done but I do enjoy having my coffee or water and taking a little look when I can.  Do you remember my horrible closet last week?  That picture helped me get it cleaned up and a little organized.  But just a little.  I did have a couple bags to toss into the trash and recycle bin.  I really need to go through the 7 totes and do more sorting and tossing but at least when I'm ready I can get to them!


I have so many craft things to play with that I could open a store!!!  Maybe I'll do some blog candy one of these days....  Anyway, top right there is about 7 The Angel Company bags from annual conventions when I was an independent consultant with them.  I'm missing 2 bags but I think I know where they are.  The red one you see was made by a former angel to hold our catalogs with one in the "cover".  Top left are 2 aprons and my Scor-Pal bag. I have 2 shelves loaded with  magazines and other craft stuff.  Maybe now that I can get to stuff I might play more! But, with all this cleaning my desk got nailed.  Need to get it cleaned...


More scraps of paper, punches to be put away, new stamps to play with. Maybe tomorrow it'll look better.
And are you ready to see my last Inside Out card for my May 8 class??


I have the Cheery Lynn Designs chicken wire die and, by golly, I got it to work with the Big Shot!  Yahoo!  Again I used the Cowlik Birthday stamp set from Hero Arts and Copic markes.


I tried to get close enough that you can see the designs on the wire.  If you look close you can.


And it's a birthday card!  The text is from a Lawn Fawn set called Happy Everything.  I wonder if this class will be a go.  I've had 4 classes cancelled but most my "students" have gone back north to their homes.  Sure is discouraging to come up with classes but I have to be prepared for 2 a month.  Any suggestions for my 2nd May class?  And please don't forgot to click on Julia's blog at the top of this post to get to all the links for other desks!  It's pretty easy to spend an hour or two looking!

Busy lady! I love that chicken wire die- its ace. What about a post it note holder- you could do it Easel style, so it stands on a desk/by the phone. With a stamped image, or a photo?Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #114

I cleaned out the fabric from my work room and all the related magazines collected over 10 years. I do not miss them it is easier for the publisher to store them digitally and me to check in. Your desk is so interesting and your cards great.

Love the card... and the closet. Why is it cleaning one space up always messes up another? Never-ending circle. hehe Kelly #123

Happy Very Belated WOYWW. I had a big clear out recently, and gave stash away as well as throwing some rubbish away. How about a notelet set in a little box for your next class? Ali x. #32

This was a fun visit, Carol! I haven't been by for a while. You know you make me nuts with all that stuff and I just dearly want to come and help you sort through it! I shall have to watch the process from afar. Your card is fantastic. I hope your class is not cancelled this time.

Enjoy the rest of the week! I'm slowly continuing my snooping around WOYWW! Darnell #52
