What's On Your Workdesk... Week 151

It's another Wednesday and I've been pulling paper packs to make some cards. I have a home party to put on in a couple weeks and need to get my ideas together. So, my desk is covered with paper. Hopefully this afternoon I'll get some ideas.  And check out the Stamping Ground for more desks!  You get to see some fun projects, too!

I am loving the few new paper packs I got from Memory Works!   I love Simple Stories and Bo Bunny!  The very top pack in the pic is SS called Destinations.  I love the colors!

Anyway, today is my 1000 post!!  Oh my!! I would love to celebrate but I've been cleaning like a crazy woman getting ready for our son to visit.  He'll arrive next Wednesday and I'm so excited!  Plus I purchased a "newer" car, a 2002 Buick LeSabre. It is high mileage but the price was right, and my insurance didn't go up! Wahoo!  This is my 3rd LeSabre!  Now to get used to the different sounds, no tachometer, and hard seats (will be buying some cushions).

And, here in AZ, people have what they call Arizona rooms, usually a sun room.  Well, my AZ room is definitely a sun room! (But it's really the patio.)

We enjoy sitting outside when the temperature isn't too high. We have lots of hummingbirds that keep us entertained and quail that feed on the bird block just a few feet away.  And my garden... well...

I have different pepper plants, romaine lettuce, and cantalope in these boxes.  We have a sun shade because the sun will bake a garden. Oh, the tomato is in a big barrel in the AZ room.

So, thanks for stopping by!  Hopefully I'll have some projects done for a later posting!

That is a great pile of papers you have there, I love BoBunny at lot! Nice looking car too. I miss seeing hummingbirds, not seen one since I left Canada far too long ago. Thanks for the snoop. Happy WOYWW, Anne ~61

We just got a newer to us car. It's a lot bigger than what I'm used to. (It's a 7 seater) so it's been interesting trying to park etc to say the least ;)

Ooh I couldn't cope with that heat but I like seeing how you get round it with the shades etc. Pouring rain here today. (South East England)

Fun post, Carol! Those paper packs look YUM. I would shrivel up and die in AZ, but my husband, he's all for it--if it's under 90 degrees, he thinks it's COLD!

Super papers and I love your outdoor area, how fab, I have a small yard that I sit out in, more shady than going up my garden which is a real sun trap. Take care, am still working my way through the list, doing so in stints and making sure I have snacks to munch as I snoop! Zo xx 77

Yeah, for the Az room and a whole lot of sunshade time in the garden spot! Heat is coming. Sunscreen is at hand. What climbing vine/ blooming climber will adorn the ladder neatly hanging with smart angle along your home's front wall?
Your tomato barrel production center will add many a tasty red accent to salads and lasagna!/ pasta! mt23stamper Keep Looking UP!
