A New Year and a Messy Desk

2016 has gone and 2017 is now here. We didn't celebrate other than watching some movies and eating popcorn.  We were in bed about 9:30 but I did wake a bit when fireworks were set off a ways away.  And I have not been crafty this week as I've been busy getting ready to go to a conference in Las Vegas, NV next week.  Yesterday I spent over $1000 getting general maintenance done to my car along with NEW tires, ouch. But today I'm giving you a view of my messy desk that has collected a few things and has a remnant of left overs from playing last Saturday!  And to see more desks and possibly some great projects please head over to the Stamping Ground (our head desker, Julia's blog) when you reach the end of my post.

What is going on here?  Well, oodles!  What can I say. There's cards and directions for an upcoming class sitting on my red Cricut, my paper trimmer in front of it, some dies to the right, then the card I made Saturday sitting on my new MISTI, a piece of paper telling me what to bring to the conference with my ATG adhesive roller and my Amaze die cut machine at the far right.  My spray bottle of water for my cleaning rag in not where it belongs, neither is a box of glue dots and assorted other stuff that need to be put away.

This pic was taken last night as today I'll be cleaning my desk and making some cards so I'll have some posts while I'm away. Now please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out Julia's desk and the links to many more!

And I hope you have a fabulous 2017!!

Happy New Year Carol. We all do it, don't we? Have a HUGE space... and work in about 6 square inches - filling the rest with all sorts. Wonderful to see your busy desk today. Have a great time at the conference.
Take care. God bless.

Happy New Year to you. I love the desk, its a sign of creativity. My mom used to say that people who clean compulsively, have no time for any creative thoughts! LOL
Happy WOYWW!

Oooooooooo a Misti you will have to tell me how you get on with it as I keep looking at it and wondering do I or don't I as it is quite expensive.

Happy New Year

I like that you have all this bright green stuff on your desk, it makes it bright and happy. Well, so do all the wonderful things to play with. Enjoy your time in Vegas. Remember, you can sleep when you're dead. PJ #33

Busy desk! I always have tons of stuff taking up residence on mine too. Las Vegas! I like that city so much to see and do. I always sit near a door/window so I can watch the goings on outside! Happy New Year! Vickie #12
