Busy Desk and Some itty Bitties

Yep, Wednesday. Desker Day.  Hump Day.  What a week - computer had issues, we had 1 1/2" rain last night with floods, yeah. Been interesting.  But today I'm joining up with many others to give you the opportunity to see my desk and the project I was working on when I took my picture yesterday afternoon.  And our head desker Julia at the Stamping Ground brought us all together!  She and her hubby has been enjoying a vacation in the U.S. (and looks like she's been having a great time for the few weeks they've been here).  I hope they have a safe trip home.

This was my desk yesterday.  I've been preparing to hold an Open House to celebrate the new catalog of the company I'm with.  What's on my desk here is one of the door prizes I'll be giving out on Friday.  What you see is:
Left: my Cricut with the Christmas cards sitting on top for a class I'll be teaching the 28th and a large bag of bags in front of it along with some embellishments in a plastic box.
Middle: my Itty Bitties sitting on a kraft sheet in front and tools, etc. behind.
Right: my Hot Marks tool (used to seam a plastic bag to fit my project) and my Platinum machine and ATG adhesive roller in front and light, ink rack, and paper scraps in back.

Do you want to see my Itty Bitties?  These are basically Card Candy but when I was involved in a swap of them the hostess changed the name to make them more unique to our company.

I used assorted dies, papers, inks, PanPastels, and embellishments but just 1 stamp set with coordinating dies.  This is the 2nd time I've made these but these are a bit bigger than I wanted but still, they are a door prize so who cares the size!  I had an interesting time editing these pictures as my Photoshop Elements 11 quit working. I'm sure it's a result of the computer issues I had last week but I have #15 ordered!  I really like Photoshop and have been using it for 20 years.  I'm not utilizing it to its fullest but I am used to it and it's fun to play with.

Please now head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the other links.
