How Did Wednesday Get Here So Fast?

My desk... I've been so busy working on various projects that it was a disaster up to yesterday! Then I cleaned it to start on the project for my video later this morning. I have the base card started on a card I found on Pinterest called a Pinwheel Tower card.  I haven't gotten very far yet. But I hurried and got a picture so I could join up with Julia of the Stamping Ground and a great group of crafters. This is week 632.

My project in pieces doesn't really give you any idea what it's gonna be. It took me a bit to decided that it's going to be a Christmas card.

But this week I finally got in my new pencil case from Amazon.  It actually holds all 150 of my Prismacolor pencils, my other good 48 colored pencils, and my good 48 watercolor pencils.  So nice to have them all together as their boxes were falling apart.

 This is 11 1/2" tall, 8" wide, and 3 1/2" thick fully loaded.

It has 3 double sided flaps and the front and back insides.

This will be great for the next crop/retreat I go to! I'll have it all together! I got it from Amazon.

So what is your desk looking like?

A nice tidy desk there Carol. another card fold i've never heard of, look forward to seeing it complete. Your new pencil case looks just the ticket, i'm not good at keeping my pencils in cases, they never stay together for very long. Enjoy!! Happy creative week ahead & WoywW Tracey #9 x

Love that case! It reminds me of one I have for all my interchangeable knitting needles. And LOL! My saga about that darn Pinwheel Tower and You Tube was on my blog sometime in the last week, I think. Drove me MAD it did, but I got there in the end. I have since seen a sort of hexagonal one (I think) that looks kinda cool too.

Enjoy the process and share when you finish it!
Happy Desk Hoppin'

it's probably a good thing I doon't make cards, Carol. I have not heard of that fold. I am, however, in awe of your new pencil case. And properly sorted by colors, too. Well worth the money I'm sure. Happy WOYWW from # 6.

I have two similar pencil cases, it is so good to have everything together. Yours is the third pin wheel tower card project I have seen. I think it’s great fold. Looking forward to seeing yours when it’s finished. Happy WOYWW Angela #7

It's good really that we do woyww as it encourages you to tidy up a bit. Not sure what kind of mess I would get into if it wasn't for tidying up a bit to take the photos. Loving the pencil case. Hope you have a lovely creative woyww. Hugs, Angela x16x

Loving that pencil case, fully loaded! I will quote you, probably often and out of context…” I have it all together”!!
Pieces of card for a Christmas…oh my Carol, you’re starting to make me have a creeping panic!!

The pinwheel tower card sounds intriguing, I haven't heard of that before. I love the pencil case - it's a great way to keep everything in one place.
Hope you have a great week,

I'm going to have to look up that card fold idea, Carol - I've never heard of it before. Always something new to learn, isn't there, and especially through WOYWW1 Love the new pencil case. I haven't put anyhing into mine yet, and I had it for my birthday at the end of May!

Happy belated WOYWW,
