What's on your desk Wednesday!



Wow!  I over-slept!  And now blogger has changed the way you upload pictures, again.  I think they love reminding me how tech-challenged I am.  The first pic above is an example of little, tiny bottles I have been collecting.  These are in my window, at eye level and right next to my head while I'm working.  One has a magnet glued to it.  I'm making that one a tussie-mussie (or is it tussy-mussy?) to wear at work.  I also made one for my bulletin board.  Totally non-essential crafting, huh?
Otherwise.  Continuing with mother's day cards, I love, love, love K and Company "Blue Awning" papers and other elements.  I know they are a year or two old but, I can't help myself.  They work year round for me.  I also found out that some of the Deja Views "Butcher Block Blue" set (very old) works with them.  Anyway, here's one card made yesterday. 
Side note: finally broke down and bought a proper pair of scissors.  Naturally, I had a coupon.

  3. Love the little bottles - no idea what a tussie mussie is though...united by a not so common language, huh! Love your Mother's Day card, you use the Blue Awning so well. And can I put this in your head: if you keep bling in seperate places for seperate jobs..what happens if a wedding pearl would erfectly finish a christening card? Do you cross borders?!!!

  14. You have a lot going on at your desk. That card is wonderful. It's a similar style as I make. Those lovely bottles sure hold some colorful flowers. A great reminder that spring is here. Hope your WOYWW was wonderful. Sorry I'm so late getting around this week.
