Another Wednesday, A Desk, and Class Samples

Ok, it's Wednesday again. And April is becoming an extremely busy month with hubby and I having a few doctor appts. each, my Honda car getting the driver air bag replaced on a recall, a funeral for a cousin (don't know when yet), and so much more.  Whew!  Tires me just to think about it!  But the fun part of today is our weekly tour of desks and you get the opportunity to see what many work areas look like and many great projects!  And this fun get together is put together by head desker Julia at the Stamping Ground.

I have just finished the last of the 4 cards I'll be teaching April 28.  On the far left is a set of butterfly dies sitting in front of my red Cricut. More right is another set on their magnet.  The little black box holds 3 Wink of Stella brushes.  Then the scrap paper pile where I stamp.  To its right are some new daubers from the company I'm with along with some ink pads, my lime green stapler, my ATG adhesive runner.  Now to the back half....  My shelves hold many things.  Top left 2 media bags with my PanPastels in them.  Then my Copic marker rack in the center.  And behind my Ott light my ink pad rack. Today I'll be working on ideas for my winter classes through an organization in Green Valley, AZ which I have to have submitted next week.  But do you want to see the 4 cards I'll be teaching?

The class is  called "Love for the Ladies".  Not quite Mother's Day cards but can be used as such. So many of my class customers moms have passed away so I decided to just make some fun feminine cards.  I'll teach similar for the guys next month.  All products used are from the company I'm affiliated with.  And I'll be doing more detailed posts on these cards later.

Ok, we're done here.  I hope you pop over to the Stamping Ground and check out the desk links.  I'm getting to stay home today so I hope to visit more than I usually do.

A busy desk filled with some interesting products. That is very nice of you to consider those who have lost their mother's and we so often need cards for women friends.

Oh I would love an ink rack like that...I have so many pads by so many manufacturers that I cent boil them down into a generic rack...I should do what you have and just find a brand I like and stay with it! Great cards Carol, and am super impressed and a little scared that you're turning in work for a winter schedule!!

Sounds like a really busy month for you. The cards look wonderful. I really like the two on the left.

Hi Carol, I'm sorry I don't mean to be a tease but I am often making the projects for The Craft Barn and they don't like it if we let on too early what we're making. Promise to show it though as soon as I can. It sounds like you are going to be busy too, nice cards. Thanks for the visit to mine and happy woyww, Angela x24x

Your ladies will love those cards, there's something for everyone!! The butterfly one really caught my eye. Life has a habit of getting in the way doesn't it? Hope all your family stuff gets sorted.
