Wednesday Desk 444 and Coffee

I was a busy beaver yesterday and got a project started and some of it accomplished for our Church Coffee Shop.  And as I was starting I decided to take my picture of my desk for today's fun international blog hop of desks put together by Julia at the Stamping Ground.  (And truth be known I was watching The Nightmare Before Christmas while I was working on my projects!)


My desk actually got quite messier as I worked but I did manage to tidy it a bit as I finished the projects I made.  You can see a 2" circle punch but dog-gone it, it wouldn't punch far enough in so out came the cutting mat and my craft knife. I didn't even have a 2" die! I cut a 2" circle on my Red Cricut and used it as a template.  Bummer. But you can see some stamps on the far left, one of the projects in the middle, and my ATG runner and edge of my Amaze die cut machine far right.  Want to see what I was working on??


I found a pattern to make the basic 4 oz. cup holder on Pinterest and made these little holders.  I'll get back to some more later.  All products are Fun Stampers Journey though the pattern papers are retired.  I'll take these to church tonight and give them to the gal who runs the coffee shop. She has some great recipes to fill the cups and the proceeds from the sales go to missions.

I really need to get going on some Christmas projects for myself but wanted to get some of these special projects out of the way.  Hopefully today I can get a ways on them.  I also found a gift store that may be interested in selling some of my cards and such.  Need to stop by and see them again later this week.  Anyway, please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the links to a few dozen others who take part in sharing their desks and sometimes projects!

I love those cup holders. I do hope that they help raise lots of money for charity. It's annoying that the punch idea didn't work out! Happy WOYWW Sarah #9
