A Busy Desk Preparing for Convention

Next week at this time I'll be on my way to Phoenix, AZ for our company's 3rd annual convention. But today (and yesterday) I have been VERY busy getting my trades and stuff ready (and I'll be at it all week). So my desk is busy working on the backs of my Biography Cards as I need to decorate the backs. But I'm joining up with Julia at the Stamping Ground and other crafters as we show you our desks in all their "glory"! Last week was the 8th anniversary of this weekly get together. I even took part in the ATC swap for the first time! But before I get going too much I better show you my desk from yesterday....

There are dies on the left and in the center. The ones in the center are sitting on the back of my Bio card.  They will cut the words Amazing Journey.  I think I'll do that to my cards in a neon green. Other than that my desk is relatively tidy but then I just finished packaging my Itty Bitty swap (our version of card candy).  I can't show those until next week but I can show you a boo boo.  These were made with retired items and I couldn't use them.  Bummer.

I made 4 items to represent the 4 seasons.  These would have been Spring but the egg die and the flower stamped image in them are not current (though I hope they'll be in our upcoming catalog). I'll save them for a future project where current product is not necessary.

Oh, as to my ATC I made, I'm pretty happy with it.

I used all product from my company.

My gal should be receiving hers the end of the week as I got it mailed yesterday.  If you are interested in what products I used please contact me but all are from the company I'm with.

Please now head over to the Stamping Ground to check out the links to many other desks. Maybe we'll cross paths along the way!

Lovely ATCs, pity you can't use those Spring eggs. Good luck in Phoenix (my son visited a friend there last year so I have plenty of visual references to the place). Sarah #22
