Selfies? Yep, with my new (now 2 months old) smartypants phone I actually have taken a few - but for special occasions. And desks? Yep, it's Wednesday!! And can you believe next Wednesday is the last one for July?? Where is the year going? Anyway, today is weekly deskers day. Wonderful Julia over at the Stamping Ground has been bringing crafters together for over 6 years on a weekly basis! If you don't have any idea what this is about just click on the WOYWW logo in my sidebar to go to Julia's explanation and directions if you want to join in. When I started way back when there was over 120 taking part. Life has whittled us down to under 80 or so. I believe I have made a few friends here and love visiting their desks. Ok, now on to my desk:
I have just cleaned off my area and actually have Pinterest on my 'puter checking out some ideas to play with. But from left to right.... That green & white thing FAR left is the side of a new little trash bin from Fun Stampers Journey. The paper trimmer almost center has given up as the orange arm is worthless but I have a new Tonic paper trimmer coming. Then center you can see my blue craft mat with my Scor-Pal and scrap paper ready to go. To the right are my scissors, ATG gun, scraps of paper, and whatever. Definitely boring.
Recently I got my June "Kit of the Month" from FSJ and was challenged to make a selfie card. I have a tendency to have unfocused selfies and have to try many times to get a good one. This one actually wasn't too bad on the first try and was taken at our FSJ 1st annual convention June 4 - 6 in Scottsdale, AZ.
I took this pic just before convention started with the stage in the background. I had on sunglasses and a Hawaiian lei as part of my team "uniform". I think I'll be sending this card to my upline as she's been pretty encouraging. The stamped text is from the new stamp set "Selfie Love". Yeah, that name fits. I think I'll be using it more for scrapbooking, though.
I'm like the embellishments on this card. Can't say I liked the fussy cutting but I got it done. I printed my photo on mat paper.
Now you've reached the end of my post. Please click on over to the Stamping Ground to keep going on the tour of desks. And if you want to leave a comment, I'd appreciate it!
