My Desk and an Inspirational Card

Monday, Monday.... oh, no!  I'm way off!  Having a long weekend has kinda got my internal calendar messed up.  When I'm waking in the morning I lay there and think of what day it is.  And I have to repeat it a few times once I have the right day figured out.  I hope that's not a sign of growing old.  Oh well.  But I digress.  This is WEDNESDAY!  It's DESKER Wednesday!  Yeah!!  You get the opportunity to see, not only my desk, but many others, should you decide to accept the mission.  Oh wait, this isn't Mission Impossible!  This is a very fun "mission" and I'll be heading over to view desks soon.  But first, if you haven't done this before and want to know more, click here.  Julia, our wonderful hostess, is taking some time off to recover from a surgery so please say a little prayer for her speedy and total healing.  But wonderful Jan is so gracious to fill in so head on over when you're done here.  So here's my desk... eek!


I have been busy putting my company catalog in a large binder.  That's 316+ pages!  That sucker is big and heavy!  Plus I've added special flyers, the Holiday mini catalog and some other important stuff (to me).  I'm thinking  I need a 2 1/2" binder as this 2" one is full.  So, far left going right... Red Cricut toward the back, a box of waxed paper (for die cutting) a pile of cards as I prepare for an August class, my catalog, the ATG adhesive runner, and the edge of my Platinum machine with some odds and ends on it.  Even with the Cricut is my stamp cleaner towel, a card I need to send to our granddaughter for her to give to her father-in-law, my OTT light, and a pile of stuff.


I got an order for 16 inspirational cards and here's one of them.  I was using my husband's camera to take the picture and that's where the streaks are from.  It's a Bell & Howell Splash and it's much more complicated than my Canon Powershot.  I even tried with my phone but I'm not overly pleased with it, either.  All products, dies, etc. on the card is from Fun Stampers Journey.


The gal how ordered all the cards was very pleased.  I still have 3 more to show.  I made 4 of each design.

Ok, please head over to Lunch Lady Jan's Fabric Frenzy to get to the links to the other desks.  Have fun!!

Very pretty card. Sounds like you've got a lot going on. That catalogue sounds like it might be quite heavy!
