A Desk Full of Christmas

Yes, I am working on a Christmas project.  I need to make a bunch of banners and I thought it was a good time to start die cutting the banner and pennant pieces.  And today is the weekly What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday put together by our lovely head desker, Julia at the Stamping Ground.  I'm sure I'll be shocking some who regularly take part or follow.  Many involved in this weekly blog tour are getting ready for the annual WOYWW Crop (which sounds like a blast!). But enough of my chatter, here's my desk from yesterday afternoon:


So, what's here.  At the front of my desk from left to right, my banner dies, a pad of retired Christmas paper and 2 die cut pieces, a pack of red card stock, and my Platinum 6 with the plates sitting on the card stock. And on the back of my desk all kinds of supplies, ink pads, and oodles of what not. Oh, and the box of waxed paper was used to hold some special washi tape for my card kits for my Christmas in August class this coming Friday.  I just didn't get it back to the kitchen pantry.

Did your jaw drop as you see my working on some Christmas projects?  Have you started on yours? Some of our kids requested banners so if I don't start soon I won't get them mailed so they can use them in time.

I won't be showing my desk again until Sept. 19 as we're going to be seeing some of our kids, grandkids, and hopefully great grandkids. I do have posts scheduled for while we're gone.

So.... I hope you enjoyed my desk and please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the other desks.  I still have to prep for a FB Live video (10:30 am my time in AZ) but I'll be clicking on a bunch of desks in my spare moments!

Yes, my jaw did drop! But I guess if you have classes and workshops to prepare for then time is of the essence! Have a wonderful time away with the family!
