It seems I've been on a roller coaster this past 2 weeks dealing with mom's illness and dad's anger over it. But I did take a few minutes to start on some cards for Mother's Day. And, you know today is the day I show you my desk along with over a hundred other crafters from all over the world. Julia, at the Stamping Ground, is the head desker who brought us all together into a giant blog tour! Check out her blog when you're done here and see all the great desks and fabulous projects. But here's a look at my desk today. Not much happening.
I'm giving you a larger picture of my work area and it is a disaster. But I know where things are! Let's see, left: Cricut, paper pile, trimmer, top of small shelf full of almost done projects. Center: stamps, Scor-Pal under my craft sheet, black ink pad, water sprayer & rag for cleaning stamps, shelf of LOTS of stuff. Right: OTT lamp overflowing with stuff, large ink rack, ATG tape dispenser, small paper scraps, & baskets of paper scraps. Quite a mess! I've cleaned it up a time or two then can't find stuff. Guess it'll stay like this for now. And I'll show you a couple cards I managed to complete this weekend.
You can see the stamp set on my desk that I used to make this card. It's by Close To My Heart called Mother's Day Occasions. I used some black & white papers and black twine to make this card. These clear stamps aren't real good about making a dark black image but hopefully with use...
This card was trying a different way of doing a sketch. It wasn't until I downloaded the picture that I noticed my boo boo. I had a good laugh but will not try to fix it. Do you see it?
Ok, now head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the desks. I didn't get much visiting last week as my brother arrived and we had some good family time and visited doctors to figure out the best way to go with mom's health issues.
