A New Year of Desks

Today I start a new year of sharing my desk.  I've been doing this for about 6 years now through Julia at the Stamping Ground weekly What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday blog tour. This is week 500, can you believe it!!!  I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year's Eve.  We spent Christmas with head colds and lots of sleeping. Was a very quiet day! But I've been busy since then working on getting ready for 2 January classes and yesterday I finished the samples and directions for my 2nd class.  By golly, what a good feeling to be ready! Both my class samples are on my Upcoming Classes page, just click the tab above. We did wake to snow which is unusual for our area and it was beautiful!  Cold, but beautiful! This picture above is the tree out front of our house and there is a mountain behind it, Mt. Wrightson, totally covered with clouds. Needless to say, the snow was gone in a couple hours though it didn't warm much.

My desk has recently been tidied and has projects on it for my 2nd Jan. class along with the products used so that I can get some blog posts made. These are Bridge cards.  I scheduled this class last April as that's when I have to submit all the info for my Jan. - March classes.  Yeah, the cards I'm teaching are a bit behind the times but that's what was popular back then.

Anyway, you can see some stuff in front of and on top of my Scan N Cut 2. On top are my samples for my Feb. class.  In the middle are my 3 card samples with products used.  To the right is my Platinum 6 and lots of paper scraps. 

Here is a card I made last June as I played for the first time with this style of card. I actually made a bunch of these as I was involved in a swap of fun folded cards. I've been hanging on to this card for my class.

Please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out all the links to other deskers taking part today.  You'll probably see some great projects while you're looking!

Afternoon Carol. I wish you a very happy and blessed new year. My word - you have started the year with a bang! All that prep done and ready for your classes - trust they go really well.
No sign of snow here - even on the mountains - although it is extremely cold today, and the frost has barely gone yet!
Take care. God bless.

Happy New Year Carol - hope it's a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019! I do love it when you're prepared for something with time to spare, it doesn't happen very often to me so I love it when someone else is way more organised!!

Happy New Year Carol, and hey - snow in Arizona, I’d say that was a lucky start! You can’t be far behind the times with your cards, I don’t know what a bridge card is...but if the hello card shown is an example, I LOVE zig. Would really love to take one of your classes. You are super organised, and you should feel good about that!

Seems a bit of unwellness around Deskland, trust you improve soon Carol. That cactus card is very cute, well done. Hope the classes go really well.
Happy belated WOYWW 500! Hugs Shaz in Oz.x #10
