My desk is pretty clean because I went on a paper clean-out spree. I went through 2 large baskets and pulled out 2 LARGE bags of scraps that I'll sell as grab bags at a class next week. I'm not teaching at the local scrapbook store anymore but I still teach a couple classes at the local recreation organization. I started this cleaning because I couldn't find a card I just made... and it's still missing.
The bags are pretty full and rather heavy. I just need to declutter my desk. I still have the 2 baskets on my desk but one is pattern paper and the other solids. I also pulled oodles of stamp sets of which many are listed on my sale page. (Sorry but only sales in the U.S. at this time.)
Here's the cute little guy I was working on last week. He stands over 1' tall. The hat is removable to put a battery tea light or small gift inside. He is from SVGcuts. I was signed up for this class but ended up with a conflict and got a kit instead. He took about 3 hours to assemble. (Thank goodness for the site's video!)
I combined buttons that matched the hat band with some gems to put on his front.
I stamped a couple holly pieces to add to the hat band. It's hard to see that I used some Clear Wink of Stella on the leaf veins and berries.
I found this little black bow in my stash and added it to the red "scarf". So much prettier than just the red!
And the face. I used big gems for the eyes and little ones for the mouth. You can see the scarf tie here without the little black bow. Just too plain!
Now that you finally got to the end of my post please leave a comment if you are willing then pop over to the Stamping Ground and take the grand tour of desks! I so enjoy seeing what others do and make! I get lots of inspiration and some organizational ideas! Grab your coffee or tea and have fun!
(And please forgive me for the length of this post but I really wanted to show you this cutie.)
