Gorgeous day! We're getting some rain! The desert southwest is quite dry and Lake Mead is dangerously low. We'll take all the rain we can get but it does raise havoc getting in and out of our home (our road goes through a gully that's impassable when flooding). But I've gotten a bit of desk time and even did some reorganization. And if you're wondering why I'm posting a picture of my desk area please click on the WOYWW picture in the left sidebar. Julia, the head desker, has done an amazing job pulling together crafters and getting them to show pictures of their desks.
I moved my little container of Copic markers to the shelf above and behind my red Cricut. I wanted them closer to my work area and horizontal rather than vertical. My little red container of acrylic blocks got moved to where the markers were along with bottle of stuff that doesn't get used frequently. For now you can see my 2 paper trimmers on the far left with some card samples for a September class. One is shown below, 1 in my last post, another in my next post and who knows when the last will be posted as it's still in progress. There's still a lot of organizing to do but I actually have some room to work at this point! Wonder how long that will last.....
I'm enjoying this new Pebbles paper with the turquoise wood grain design. The back side is a plaid which is ok. It's used in the leaves and flowes.
I cut the leaves and flowers with my Cricut using the Serenade cartridge. Add a bling center and some brads and voila! I seen a card on Pinterest using a fence like this but I changed it up to work for my class.
Here's the result of yesterday's rain. We got a 1/2" in just over 1/2 hour. This is looking down the road with the gully running right to left (about 3' deep) and overflow going straight down the road. It took about 3 hours before it was down and people could get through. Hubby has a 4 wheel drive pickup but he had to wait until the water was less than 6" deep to get home. There is a pickup at the far end of the road waiting for the water to go down.
So now if you want to hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground blog and see many desks from all over the world please click through. I will spend some time looking around today and getting some inspiration, giggles, and even opportunities to pray for someone. God bless you!
