Desks and Kisses

I bet this post title has you wondering.  Well, it is Wednesday.  You know what I do on Wednesdays.  Yep, it deskers day!  And today my brother will be arriving to help make some tough decisions over some family health issues. But I did get a picture of my desk.  And I hope to visit many shortly.  This is all courtesy of head diva desker Julia at the Stamping Ground.

I have been busy cutting 11 sets of 4 cards for a class next Tuesday at my local scrapbook store.  If I had more paper (I used up all the store had of the 2 different sheets) I could have easily sold more.  But here is my container finally filled and mostly ready.  I still have ink pads, acrylic blocks, and scissors (just to the right of the box) to pack but they will go in on Tuesday morning.  And you can see the little scraps of pieces from the papers I cut.

Here's another view of the card kits.  Hard to believe there's 44 card kits in there.  But look at what I got done yesterday .....

The LSS where I teach is having a May Tea on the 10th and I hope to be involved and teach a Make 'N Take of this cute little Hershey Kiss Tea Cup.  I found it on Pinterest at the QBee's Quest blog.

And the top.  I realized that all my photos but this last one that I took to make my own tutorial was on the wrong setting on my camera.  This last photo (there were about 15 taken of the different steps) was a retake.  And, if you noticed, there are 3 kisses in the first photo and only 2 in the second.  Yep, I ate one between the photos.  Yeah, I know, naughty me but I desired some chocolate.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

So now, please click on over to the Stamping Ground and check out all the fun desks and cool projects!

Carol, your card kits look great! Hope your class goes well (I assume it's for a class you're teaching?) And I love the Hershey Kiss teacup! I would have trouble with this project because I'd want to eat all the kisses. Happy WOYWW! ~ Laura #64

What a sweet little cup! You sound mega organised for the workshop - hope it goes really well, and that your brother's visit does, too. Easter blessings, Chris # 31

The card for your class look great - you'll have to show us a finished one. I can tell by the paper and colors that it would be right up my alley.

The kiss holder is very cute.

Happy belated WOYWW
Peace, Kay (13)

Well I hope the decisions are made and they weren't too painful.....doncha just hate being old enough to have to be the grown up!
The kisses cup is every sweet, we don't get kisses he, which is frightfully inconvenient.....!
