it's Another Wednesday, Another Workdesk

Well, it feels like I've had a little time between last week and this week for some reason.  I went to a meeting last Saturday then spent the day shopping for certain items.  I found the Snow-Tex by DecoArt and a lamp for the kitchen window.  I wanted the lamp as the daughter got her dad a cool wifi light bulb! Yep, we can turn it on and off and dim or brighten by telling Alexa!  What a hoot! But today is special, it's the day you get the opportunity to view my desk and, if you click through to Julia at the Stamping Ground, the links to many other desks! So, don't faint when you see the following....

I have been very busy!  I've been playing with Spellbinders November Large Die of the Month!  I have made a cute Christmas tree with a little box in it and 2 shaker cards!  The Tree was posted yesterday and the shaker cards will be Friday and next Monday (at least that's the plan).  If you click on the picture to enlarge the cards and tree are near the base of my OTT light just to the left of the ink pads.   Also there I have a pile of card stock sitting on my ArtBin of Spellbinder dies, some green dies that coordinate with the stamp set under them, some markers (I cleaned my computer desk and those have not been put away),  a Spellbinder deer die I got free, my baggie of foam pop dots and my Platinum 6. Behind those items, who knows what.  I really need to clean my table!

Here is our new lamp on the kitchen countertop.  I would love to find 2 ceiling light fixtures to match.  Our current fixtures came with our manufactured home and I'm tired of them.

I do have a request... I've been trying to make some graphics to share on Pinterest and maybe Instagram.  How does the following look?  Is it big enough?

I love how some of the projects on Pinterest show a project and it's close up along with some text all together and I was playing on my Print Shop a bit.  I haven't the foggiest idea what I'm doing.

Well, hmmm.... I started this post with that.  Anyway... you've reached the end and please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the other desks.  You'll even find some cool projects!!

Afternoon Carol. I don't do pinterest, so can't help there, I'm afraid - I'm sure many others will though! I've seen the adverts on the TV for getting Alexa to turn lights down, answer questions, etc... fun, but I don't suppose I shall get around to investing. I like the lamp on your kitchen top - it's in a great position there.
Take care. God bless.

I popped to have a look at the Christmas tree box - it's so clever and a really great idea, perfect for popping small gifts into and making them look amazing!!

Those Christmas tree shaker cards are so cute Carol. Sorry I can't help on the Instagram/Pinterest front. I can just about edit a photo to add to my blog or Facebook but I am not very technologically inclined otherwise. Happy WOYWW. Sarah #4

Hi Carole, I'm really on the fence about these 'smart' gadgets! Not sure if I like the idea or not. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #9 X

your graphic looks great, Carol. I've already pinned to my Christmas card board ;-) Love the card, too. You made me giggle with the wifi lamp. I am just so not that techy. LOL Does sound fun though. "Alexa, turn on the lap" hehe Great for when your hands are icky and you need to see the faucet. Now to have Alexa turn on the faucet. ;-) Creative Blessings! Kelly #27
