Wednesday Work Desk

Well, it's Wednesday again.  Seems this comes every week.... LOL! But the weeks sure seem short!  I have been busy getting ready for a class on Friday.  I just pulled out my big paper cutter and was getting started when I took this picture yesterday afternoon.  I've been staying indoors as much as possible because we have been reaching record highs, 111*F or 43.88* C.  Ugh.  We're supposed to cool down a bit later this week but still hot.  Anyway,  this view of my desk is part of a fun weekly blog tour of desks put together by Julia at the Stamping Ground.  And it's week 477!    And now for my desk....


Let's see... Left to right front....
Green embossing folder sitting on some dies, card samples in a clear box on top of directions, Tonic paper cuter, then my Platinum die cut machine with my red ATG adhesive runner under the plates.
In the back, my ScanNCut (which is sadly neglected), red box of acrylic blocks, cleaning rags, baskets of liquid fun, Ott light, and green basket of scraps.
Far back are shelves holding misc. stuff, washi tape dispensers, ribbon boxes, ink pads, and my FSJ team mascot.

I just finished my 4 Christmas card samples for my Aug. 24 class along with the directions for each card.  I was fairly productive yesterday and even got 1 card kit completed for the 3 coming to class.  Today I need to get the other 3 card kits done and even make a FaceBook Live video about 10:30 a.m. my time.  While writing this post I even realized that I haven't shared the cards for my Friday class.  Guess I need to get that done, too! So, here is one that the gals will be making.  All products used are from Fun Stampers Journey. The black layer was embossed then the center die cut before swiping with white ink.  Of the 4 cards for class this one is my least favorite, not sure why. There was a demo using this stamp set at convention and we were told that this is not a Zebra as we learned to pronounce it, but that it rhymes with Debra. Well, except for the first letter it's spelled the same.  Anyway, you probably had to hear it as it was demo'ed.






So now please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the links to other crafters brave enough to share their desks and even projects!

Hi Carol, and we thought we were having a hot summer at up to 34 degrees C (93.4F). I know that's not hot anyway in comparison to Arizona but here in the UK it is a big deal! Hope you manage to get all your projects finished in this heat. Have a good week. Sarah #13

Zebra v Zeeebra, it reminds me of the song 'Let's Call the Whole Thing Off!" It doesn't really matter as it's a fun stamp and a great card! You've been so productive this week Carol, puts me to shame!
Hugs LLJ 11 xx

Lots of fun things on your desk. Like the Cyclop we all have someone watching over us ! I really love the pretty flowers on your card. Happy WOYWW

I'd be lost at temperatures that high, 24 is perfect for me and it's only that cool at the end of the day, barely less at night... roll on winter! Great desk. Helen #4

Caro said...

Love the zebra! In fact I was going to order at my last FSJ workshop, but ended up ordering a lot more of everything else than I intended. Always next time! LOL Nice cards! Happy WOYWW! #25

It's hot here, too, Carol, but I bet you are like me and have AC, unlike our friends across the pond.

I adore those samples and the zebra is to die for. Thanks for the earlier visit. Happy WOYWW from # 1.

I find it so odd to read about Christmas cards while the Summer is here and temperatures rise to a point that it's hard to bare.... I do love the Zebra-card! Have a great week, warm (tropical!) hug from the Netherlands, Marit #21

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Carol, love the cards! Blimey, that's really hot, we're struggling with the high 30's, but then for the UK,anything over 20 is classed as hot for us! lol. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #7 xXx

Hi, Carol! Sounds like you've been very productive this week. Your zebra card is lovely. I really like the color scheme, great contrast! Have a fabulously crafty weekend! Julie {#29}

I hope your extreme heat has broken; we experienced those sort of numbers last year when we visited Page and Lake Mead....ended up swimming in our clothes just to cool off a bit! I love it, but I do know my limits!! I’m v impressed at your card workshops being ready. I haven’t bothered yet and am starting to feel guilty about it. I dont thinkI’ve been lazy but I really should make time for Christmas stuff...last minute workshop preps are just the pits aren’t they. You set e a fine example Miss Carol!

Visited a friend in AZ back in February and it was gorgeous but I hear from them it is a bit too hot at the moment. And I thought we were having it hot (although today is not - and yesterday was wet - back to our usual summer but cannot grumble).
Sounds as if you have been busy busy - getting ahead is definitely something to do in the heat.
Hugs, Neet 3 xx (late, sorry)
