Desk, Swaps, and a Halloween Card

This has been one of those weeks.  Saturday I pulled a back muscle and it still hurts. Worked like crazy over the weekend, too, to get 2 dozen cards ready and packaged to put on my rack at a store where I sell cards (2 dozen sold so had to replace), and yesterday... my Canon printer decided not to be among the living.  Hello Amazon!  Ordered a Canon PIXMA MX922. And wouldn't you know it that now I need to do some printing of invoices! Bummer.  May have to download them to a thumb drive and take to a printer or the library in town to get them done.

BUT!  Today is your opportunity to take a look at my desk and quite a few others, should you decide to enjoy a tour.  This fun desk tour has been organized by Julia at the Stamping Ground and it's week 431.  My desk has just cleared a bit from finishing some of the cards I had to take to the store.

You can see a pile of paper, stamp packages, and die packages on the front far left.  Center has 2 manila envelopes I'm working on to send off a swap of Itty Bitties (Card Candy) but I can't show those yet.  Far right is a package of envelopes.  Back part of my desk, left is my Cricut and baskets of often used stuff.  Center is my water bottle and blue stamp cleaning rag, and more often used stuff.  And far right, my inks. Top center, my phone holder ready for when I start making some videos for my team and customers.

I guess I'll show you one of the Halloween cards I made to sell.  All products from the company I'm with.

I bet this card will sell fast along with the other I made.

Ok, please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the links to other desks and projects. I need to work on a couple projects but will be visiting around them.  Have fun!

that is always a massive tragedy when a printer goes Kaput. Hubby just had that happen and had to use mine as my Canon Pixma MG7720 was working. he quickly learned to check paper as reports do not work on small sizes of photo paper. Canon sends lots of free paper when i order ink.

How fortunate to have a population that appreciates hand made cards.

Hope your back recovers soon. It's great that you have somewhere local to sell your cards and that they are appreciated. Great Halloween card; no wonder your cards are popular. Happy WOYWW Sarah #19

Argh, printers! Have spent a few hours sorting mine out this week, so am feeling your pain. At least I havent had to buy another yet. ALthough there was always the chance of it being heaved through a window! Halloween cards to sell, my word you are on it. Hope your back continues to heal..and fast!
