A Pocket of Hearts and My Desk

I don't know about you but it seems Wednesday comes faster than every 7 days.  Maybe it's because I'm not getting much accomplished with trying to stay off my ankle.  Until today.  Today I have a class to teach in Green Valley, AZ and have 10 people coming to learn the Sunburst Technique.  I know one has possibly never stamped and called me to find out where to purchase the supplies she needs for class.  I asked a friend who is coming if she'd help me a bit and I think another will, also, since I'm still not walking without pain.  But this morning, you get the opportunity to see my desk and the desks of others through Julia of the Stamping Ground.  If this international blog tour is new to you and you want more info just click on "What is WOYWW" when you head over to the Stamping Ground at the end of my post.

I was going to have 2 different views of my desk for you but yesterday I spent too much time on my ankle/feet and had to sit with the foot elevated.  This view is from Saturday after I FINALLY cleaned it up and reorganized some stuff.  The eye lever area at the back of my desk is now cleaned and I have stuff there that I use frequently instead of digging into a drawer.

I still need to clean up some glitter that's stuck to the blue craft mat and table but I got most of it.  I still have a pile of small scraps to the far right.

This card is very clean and simple and a far cry from the cards I posted Monday and will post on Friday.  I actually did some mixed media on those.  This card is almost cased from one I have pinned on Pinterest. All supplies from Fun Stampers Journey.

And this card didn't take but maybe 15 minutes to make.  There are a lot of differences from the Pinterest card but the general look is the same.

Oh, last week I mentioned the Big Brown Truck that I watch for.  It's the UPS truck that delivers packages to our home.  Buddy, our regular driver, is a real sweetie and makes a bit of visiting fun.

Ok. You've gotten to see my desk clean and kinda busy and a card.  Now, please head over to the Stamping Ground and continue on your tour.  The crafty gals are wonderful and many share their projects, too.  Enjoy!  I'll be here until noon (AZ time) before I have to head in to where I teach.

What a beautiful card! I love it. (Might copy the idea if you don't mind)
Do be careful with that ankle. Otherwise it will take so long to heal.
Have a good week,

Lovely Valentine, Carol, and glad you have a nice delivery man. Our postman is very nice too. Thank you for your lovely comment, and yes, we are very relieved my hubby is OK. The nurse told him to relax with his feet up today but if you revisit my blog you can see he's been slaving in the garden instead! He's incorrigible! But at least what he was doing is exciting, and come the spring, it should be very pretty.

Happy WOYWW,

A pocket of hearts--that's great. Kudos on getting the desk cleaned up. You'll find that your frequently used items changes from time to time, so don't be afraid to change things out once and awhile.
