Desks and Gnomes

Hmmm..... Desks and Gnomes.  What do they have in common?  Absolutely nothing but I have both to show you today!  This is Wednesday, the day I show you my desk in whatever shape it was in yesterday afternoon at whatever point in time I grab my camera. And I link up with Julia at the Stamping Ground along with quite a few other crafters who are willing to share their desks. But I do have a project to show you, too.

But first, my desk....

I'm in the process of starting on some card kits for a home party scheduled Friday morning. Right now I have 4 confirmed (includes the hostess) and 2 maybes.  I'll be prepping for 8.  I'll know more tonight when we have dinner with the hostess and her hubby (good friends!).
So, on my desk from left to right in front: a pile of paper, a plastic box with embellishments for one of the card, my work space, a collection of PanPastels that we'll be using,  and my Platinum with scraps and some goodies under the platform and my ATG adhesive roller on top.
Middle is my ScanNCut, a little red bag with some cards and envelopes as the hostess gift, stamps and directions for the cards, my OTT light, and a green basket of odds & ends.
Back is shelving of misc., a shelf of more misc, then my ink pads.

And for my project....  Today our new Holiday Mini catalog goes live and I made some fun ornaments using a stamp set from it.  When I seen the "Gnomes for the Holidays" stamp set with coordinating dies I just fell in love!!  I seen a similar project  on a video and had to make these.  I think they're  adorable!

These little embroidery hoops are about 3 1/4" across and about 1/8" thick.

These would be fun as package toppers, too!  I'll be making more of these!

Ok, I'm done.  I hope you enjoyed my post.  Please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out all the links!  And who knows what fun projects are being shared!
