Work Desk and Milk Cartons

Hmmm, I bet you're wondering about my post title. How do these items go together?  Well, they don't. But today is Wednesday, the day I share my desk top with you in whatever shape it's in and I am sharing a project along with it.  My desk was very busy yesterday afternoon as I worked on a project for Valentine's Day for our 2 great grandsons, yes, great grandsons. They are 7 and 2 but they both have birthdays in May.   Oh, and this fun tour de desks is put together by Julia, our head desker at the Stamping Ground.  Head over there at the end of my post and check out a bunch of desks and projects!


I am about done with my project in this picture.  You can see my red Cricut (sadly not getting used), some dies and stuff in front of it. Center working right of my desk is my project laying on its side, some stamps I used on it, some candy,  some paper scraps that I need to put away, my Black ink pad, my pack of paper I just finished with, and my Platinum machine (a BIG die cutter). And there is various whatnots all over, tools, twine, and so on.

And what did I finish making?



I made a little milk carton of candy for the oldest of the great grandsons!  I got this die in December and it is so fun!  All products are from Fun Stampers Journey.



I did some paper piecing on the 2 dinosaurs for fun.  They really pop!  And the 2 cartons together...


I will have these in the mail Friday. I still need to make 1 more little goodie for our almost 3 year old grandson.  Not sure yet what I'll make.

Anyway, I'm done.  I had a few more pictures than usual but I had to post the whole set. Please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out more desks and projects!  But before you go I'd appreciate a comment of what you thought of my milk cartons!  And I'll be checking the links myself so maybe we'll cross paths!

Oh those cartons are lovely - your GSons will love them! Especially when they're at an age when they don't mind getting smooched by their Grandma hopefully :-D

Hi Carol, I know what you mean about cutters being slightly 'off'. I think it was shazinoz told me a while back that very often the actual edges of the machine that you butt cardstock against are very often not perfectly straight. It works much better if you have grid lines/markings on the base that you can line up against- they tend to be straight. It does seem to help. It can also be that the cardstock itself is rarely cut square, so that is easier to correct by not butting to the edges. Have a lovely day, Hugs, shaz X
