It's a beautiful Wednesday! The mornings lately have been below freezing so be having to scrape the car's windshield and back window but warming to mid 60's* in the afternoon. But it's also the day you get to visit my desk and the desks of many others who are brave enough to show you where they create. And our wonderful head desker, Julia at the Stamping Ground, has done quite the feat of bringing us all together on a weekly basis!
My desk is very busy. I've been working on an idea for a gift card holder for our church's Solid Rock Cafe gift cards. My first idea fell flat but this one looks like it may work. I'll have to post how it comes out later as I've a long ways to go. You can see some of it on my work pad.
I'm using the "Love You A Latte" cartridge in my old Cricut Expression (hard to believe that a 4 year old machine is basically obsolete already!) So much on my desk got shoved over to the far right and you can't see the terrible mess under the dark brown card stock (thank goodness!).
And the last few weeks you've seen a coffee cup on my desk waiting for decorating. Well, I got all 8 done and all are for Christmas gifts.
I used some stencils by "Painted by Me" and a paint pen purchased at my local Jo-Anns craft store. Unfortunately 2 stencils fell completely apart when I was removing them. The cups did have to be baked in the oven to make the words permanent. So glad to get these done!
Ok, now that you've reached the end of today's post please head over to Julia's desk and click on the links to oodles of other desks! I'll be doing some visiting and working on today's projects.
