Another Wednesday, Another Desk

We are temporarily having summer the last couple days.  Temps have hit the low 90s*F and our air conditioner has been running.  I'm not really ready for this heat but then we're supposed to cool off a bunch on Friday and Saturday. But what's really hot is the ability to view desks all over Europe and the U.S.! I'm taking part in a weekly What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday week 462! This fun get together of fellow crafters is coordinated by our head desker, Julia at the Stamping Ground! My desk is busy as I work on 40 birthday card fronts for a special swap.  From 2002 to mid 2011 I was an independent demonstrator for a company called The Angel Company.  Many from that company are now in Fun Stampers Journey, too.  But there are 40 of us getting together for this swap.

From left to right.... my new Scan N Cut 2 (which I have played with a bit) with it's papers, etc. in front of it.  But I bet you can see the corner of the DVD movie of The Greatest Showman that I was watching yesterday afternoon when I took this picture.  There's the 2 remotes, 1 for the TV and 1 for the DVD player. Next on the white scrap paper are the 40 card fronts that I am coloring.  Yeah, I stamped a very special stamp that I got last week from the company to celebrate my birthday! It's a fun perk.  Next, a magnetic sheet with balloon dies.  I'll be cutting 3 different sizes.  I'm working on the biggest here and you can see the paper with the die on my Amaze machine.

In the back are my shelves of supplies, inks, OTT light, baskets of projects and scraps. and what not.

I have to have these fronts in the mail next week so I'm working like crazy but today I'll be at a hospital in Tucson vising my friend who is in rehab from a stroke 2 weeks ago. I should be home early afternoon and playing catch up on visits, etc. Tomorrow I will be making a special cake for a luau on Friday evening.  My cake will have crushed pineapple and cherry pie filling along with a yellow cake mix. Kinda appropriate.

Please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the other desks!  You'll also see many projects!  See you around!

I thought I had a busy card making session but 40 card fronts.. Wowieee!! I've always been a little scared of the scan and cut but heard great things about it, I think I am too much of an old fashioned girl and still love the sound of scissors cutting paper.
Your cakes sound delicious, enjoy and Thank you for sharing WOYWW.
Creative wishes Tracey x

Yum. Love the cake you made. One of my favorites! Sounds as if you've been busy. I hope your trip went well and your friend is on the mend. As to the temps, I wish it were 90* here. Woke up to 33* this morning.. second day in a row. Spring? Haven't seen it yet. I'm waiting. LOL Creative Blessings! Kelly #24
