My Desk and Easter Goodies

We are definitely in spring with our weather so sunny and warm. I have been working on Easter projects to send to our kids and their families.  And since today is the day I, and many others, share views of our desks I will share my desk and some of what I have done. Also, this fun weekly view of desks and many great projects is put together by Julia of the Stamping Ground.  This is week 459! I've been involved since about week 185 or so.


My desk is pretty tidy at the moment.  I had to clean it up before I start on my next project.  It was an absolute disaster last Friday. What you see here is some treats and a card game on the far left.  The little green thing is a cupcake holder with a little thing of cupcake sprinkles in it. Behind that are 3 card bags I recently made.  Kinda off center to the left are my Easter cards.  Most just need a little message in them.  The striped bags have Dum Dum suckers with fun toppers and behind them are 2 baskets with their handles removed to mail.  To the top right of my blue desk liner are some of my stamping tools.  In front of my lamp is my next project waiting to be started.  And far right my ATG adhesive runner and the corner of my Amaze die cut machine.  But last week.....


Oh yeah, I  ran out of room to work! You can see the baskets with their handles ready to attach with brads. There's a card on the far left for our stamp club meeting Saturday and behind it a small bucket with all the suckers. Whew!

What to see what I have almost ready to mail?


The 2 baskets are for our kids that have little ones. You can see some of the suckers I topped. Finding boxes for those have been tough but I may have a couple.  In front are the bags have the suckers.  Part of the Easter Party in a Box that I purchased through the company I'm with had little tags in the shape of Bread Tags (which was easy for me to cut since I have the die needed).

Well, that's it! I have been very busy.  After cleaning our church Monday I planted oodles of flowers and a shrub and was so sore I could barely move! Definitely had my steps in that day! Yesterday after Bible Study I worked on the stuff above.  These pictures were taken yesterday afternoon..  Today I will be packaging and shipping these goodies.  I will also be finishing up our tax stuff to send out which means making sure I have copies of everything and get them in the envelope to our son. So I will be popping in and out all day checking desks.  Remember to head over to the Stamping Ground and check the links!

You're putting me to shame - I haven't made a single thing for Easter! The baskets are great, so colourful - I bet they go down well :-D

Oh my Carol. I'm feeling somewhat faint at the thought of all your activity. Everything looks great - well done. Out in the garden??? I have managed one, one hour session so far this year - just think it's getting warm enough... and down goes the temperatures and down comes the snow!
Take care. God bless.

Guaranteed inspiration over here Carol! Love the sucker toppers, what a great idea. The bags look lovely, I really like the bread tag use.

Great ideas! I need to finish my grands Easter stuff and ready to mail tomorrow. I think the gift bags will be perfect for their lip balm spinners. Creative Blessings! Kelly #25
