Woop Woop, it's WOYWW all my crafty friends!!! That means, "look at my work space at your own risk, Wednesday!!" LOLOLOL It has been worse than it is today, meaning only a 8x5 space to work because of the clutter, so I feel pretty good about that! LOLOL So.......all that said, I do have some "actual" projects in the works on my space, so the "clutter" is justified!!! LOLOL Hey, we can all find a way to make it sound good can't we! LOLOL If you've got clutter to share, pop on over to Julia's blog, Stamping Ground, join in and share your mess, I mean creativity! LOLOL
As you can see, I have this and that on my desk this morning. In the foreground I have some ATC's I am working on and then behind them to the left a little, I am working on some tags. I do several swaps and challenges, so I am having fun making ready for some swap pals!!! To the left is my VERY FULL journal. I have a few pages left in that guy, although it has become increasingly hard to work in that journal because it is so FULL. Next journal, I will be trying a trick that I saw online somewhere, not sure where, that if you start in the middle and work your way out, it would lay better. Not sure if that is so, but hey, I will try anything! LOLOL I'm saving my pennies for a new journal (seriously thinking about putting a journal fund can on my desk at work...hee hee) because those guys are expensive! Phew! I love Dyan Reaveley's journals the best! This time around, I want to get the new square one. It looks like fun to play with! I've been a good girl this year, maybe Santa has been watching! LOLOL
Just above my journal is one of my coveted Stampin Up: Itty Bitty Background stamp sets. I saw that set last year over on a blog that I follow from Rachel over in the UK. She did a Christmas Card Series on her blog and each card was gorgeous!! She used this stamp set, but noted that it was a retired set. Well, that's all I needed to hear (you know what I am talking about crafters). I went on a mad search for those stamps because Rachel just made those cards pop with those stamps! Well I found the whole set on EBay for like a couple of bucks! What???? Yep, I felt like I had hit pay dirt! LOLOL I love those stamps! Thanks Rachel!!
Also on my desk are those gorgeous acrylic inks from Daler Rowney! I love, love using those inks! There are also a couple of Liquitex inks as well, but Daler Rowney has a Pearlescent line and they are just a dream to work with and the color and pearlescent effects are just dreamy! I had them out for the challenge that I did this month, but I decided to continue to use them for some of the other projects I am doing. Love!
The rest of the goodies on my desk are just things that I haven't put in their proper places. Probably things that are my "go to" items that, in my mind, if I put up, I will just be dragging out again, so hey, why put them up! LOLOLOL Kind of the same theory my husband uses for our bed! Why make it up, he says, we are just going to get back in it tonight!! LOLOL Men!!!
That's it for me today my friends! I hope your mid week is finding you being blessed of the Lord. If you feel like things aren't going exactly your way, talk to Him! He loves hearing from us!! In His Word He says, "Before they call, I will answer; while they are still speaking, I will hear." Isaiah 65:24 What a comforting promise from our Father in Heaven!! Abide in Him and He WILL abide in you! That scripture in John goes on to further say that no branch can bear fruit by itself, that it must remain in the vine! You tap into the Father DAILY and you WILL begin to bear fruit! It may not look like what you think it should look like, or happen when you think it should happen, but God has His own timing!! For me, I would much rather have all things in His time because I know it will then be blessed of the Lord!
Have a FANTASTICALLY BLESSED Wednesday! :)
