Workdesk Wednesday Again

I missed last week. Yep, busy cooking desserts for Thanksgiving Day.  I made Lemon Bars and Pecan Pie Muffins and they were a big hit. So, my desk was mostly in the kitchen along with getting some house cleaning done.  But here I am today (actually this is Tuesday evening).  This is my desk this afternoon as I was working on getting ready for a class on Friday and this view is part of a weekly blog tour of desks put together by Julia at the Stamping Ground.

I had just finished cutting the 3rd of the 4 cards and 8 of each. The 3 almost ready card kits are in the clear boxes in front of the right side OTT light. The 4th card with directions are on the left. There's also the dies I'll be using next to the card. Other than that my desk is empty but there are a bunch of scraps on the right.  Wait until tomorrow morning as I finish all the cutting then start getting all the embellishments together and packaged.  Yep, I'm early!

I have been busy making little 3D scenes for emergency Christmas gifts (those you need because someone decided to give you a gift and you were surprised). I posted one on Monday and the other will probably be this Friday.  I still have 1 more to make.  And I've been working on some Christmas cards.  Whew! I have a Christmas party Saturday at a monthly crop, one next Tuesday night at church, and 2 on the 15th!  I even got our dentist appts. postponed for a month as things are going crazy already!

Please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the other desks.  Since I don't have quite so much to do at my work desk I hope to get around a bit more.

Great desk Carol! I won't be able to work on the floor much longer, my knees do protest when I have to get up!!. Helen #5

That’s quite a production line you’ve got going there, Carol. I know the feeling of busy busy busy - no time to draw breath these days. I have a love-hate relationship with working to a deadline. Partly it keeps me at it and I get really productive, and partly it’s blind panic!! Must have a look for your emergency Christmas gifts - a good idea to have something like that in hand. Thank you for your visit - yes, quite a week with Ruby. Till my hubby can check all the defences (he’s out all day today so can’t do it) the kitties are banned from going out and will have to be indoor kitties for a bit. They don’t like it but we’ve got to keep them safe! I’m glad you like my flowers. They are really fun to make, as is the bread, for that matter! Those little embroidery frames are really cool. I have made several designs that fit that particular size and being small, they don’t take too long to do and they make very useful little gifts.

Happy WOYWW,

Wow Carol catching my breath here. Think I'd better get off and go get into my craft room.
Brilliant idea to do bulk. Need to adopt it!
