WOYWW #201

This is the first time I have participated in WOYWW. My blog friend Regina reminded me to take a picture of my desk before I clean it up so I could post it. I always love seeing everyone's desks, so I thought I'd show mine!

This is the card I just finished. I work on a table, and have to clean up after every session, so I had to take the photo the night before.

The stamps I used on the card are on the left. You can also see one of my Xyrons in the photo. The cup has water in it so my paintbrush wouldn't dry out before I cleaned it. I used that to spread the Yes! Glue on my card.

You can also see two mesh desk organizers, one holds small paint brushes and my aqua painters, and the other holds blending stumps and Fantastix and things.

The wooden box is one of my treasures. It belonged to a great aunt, and is very old. She gave it to me when I was a child. That's where I put scissors and other small things that I use every time I stamp. Next comes some Krylon Spray, and a little box with a push pin and some scraps in it. When I use my Spellbinders, I use the pushpin to poke out the little bits into the box. I empty the box into the waste basket when I clean up.

Next comes my heat gun, which is barely visible in the photo, and a set of plastic drawers where I keep my most used stamp pads. In front of that is my Yes! paste and a glue runner which doesn't stick. There is also some Mod Podge, some regular tape that I use to stick my Spellbinders down with when I don't need to use removable tape, my wax paper, which is my most important tool when using delicate dies, some scissors, a roll of dimensional tape, and a little plastic container of watercolor I made from PearlEx.

There is also a glass jar of Ranger Nibs, Glossy accents, and a pencil.

To see what WOYWW is all about, and visit everyone's desks, go here to Julia's Stamping Ground.

Hi Kathi, I'm so glad you were able to join in on the fun. Happy crafting #87

Wow, my desk never looks that neat when I am creating!!!
I clean it off and then decide to do another card but in the end my actual working space is probably 12" x 12". Just the size of the cutting mat. lol

Helen said...

Welcome alone!! Thanks for leaving such a lovely comment - I think I'd prefer to work on the floor than have to move everything each time, lol!! Hope to see more of your desk/crafty stuff again soon. Helen, 8

Welcome; look forward to seeing your creations.

JD said...

Kathi, does you desk always look this neat? Mine never does. I'd be too embarrassed to show it right now. It's on my list to go clean it up after I get finishing commenting on my blog, and hang some wash outside. (It's beautiful here today...perfect weather). I'd much rather be outside working then in the house working. Believe me, even with our small yard, there's lots of yard work to keep me busy.

Kathi, You are YOUNG...and younger than I am. When I saw your photo posted for ODBD I guessed you to be about 20 years younger.

Hope you have a great day.

Welcome! Glad you're here! Beautiful card! JRS makes some cool stamps. I really like them too. So you use a brush to 'spread' YES glue? Happy WOYWW! Nan #9

JoelMcBride said...

Welcome to the wonderful world of WOYWW! I'm a newbie myself and have learned a heck of a lot in the past few months by visiting many a blogs! I didn't even know what Yes! Glue was until visiting your blog!

I love the work you have done with the cigar boxes - I should do something myself like this (after all, I am a cigar smoker so I could use the idea as a rationale for future purchases!)

Lovely card - Justrite stamps I see.
Love the blue craft mat, not seen one that colour before - must look out for one as mine is shot at.
How lovely to have that old box, treasure it always.
You know, you have enough there to be happy crafting - makes me wonder why I need all the stuff I have. Stay happy in your submarine.
Thanks for visiting me earlier and a BIG WELCOME to WOYWW - Hugs, Neet number 16 xx
