If you are accustomed to coming around on Wednesdays and seeing my desk you notices I was absent last week. And for good reason! I was at a 4 day scrapbook retreat called the Cactus Crew Scrapbooking Crop. I don't scrapbook but boy, did I get some cards made! So today, I'm back. I finished unpacking all my rolling totes yesterday morning, got stuff put away, finished some partially done projects, and opened a large box of goodies I had ordered.
But as you know if you've been following me I usually take part in What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday and my desk is finishing a project (just 1 to go!). This is all put together by Julia at the Stamping Ground and it's week 533.
I have on my work mat a purple tub that I made my own glue sponge. Works pretty good. I found the small tub, cut a Cello sponge to fit, and added Elmer's Heavy Duty glue. I was careful to let each addition of glue sit and swell the sponge until I got to the consistency I wanted. Next to it is a card that I just used the glue on some tiny word die cuts. Worked pretty good! Next to that is my Bloom Tool (aka Tool-In-One by Spellbinders) sold by Fun Stampers Journey. Then the pile of goodies that came in while I was gone. I'll be showing those on a FB live video at 10 am my time (Arizona, mountain standard time - we don't do daylight savings).
I will show you a couple cards I made at the Crop. I used some PhotoPlay paper we got as a gift and an embossing folder I won. The sparkly pineapple was part of a prank one friend played on another. That was a hoot!
So please now head over to the Stamping Ground and join in on the fun! Catch you around the web!
