Ok, I am way over my head right now...this is what I'm working on right now:

1.  Christmas in July event
2.  Engagement Party decorations (casino theme)
3.  Baby Shower decorations (guitars)
4.  Assisting a friend with vinyl cuts

But it's all fun!  I'm pretty much done with the items for the Christmas in July event.  If I do anything else it'll be extra. 

Like I said before, thank God for the Cricut.  That thing is chirping away as I cut out multiple layers of the shapes I need.

I did have to make one run to the craft store to get some teal and silver paper for the guitars.  Gone are the days of baby blue and teddy bears!  LOL

Anyhow, here's a look at my desk:

I am making these cute big flowers for the photo backdrop for the engagement party.  They are so easy to make!  I found this pdf off of Pinterest of the cards.  I printed them for part of the centerpiece so I didn't have to purchase cards, but thought they would be great for these petals.  I will make some plain white and red ones too.  But these are so cool!!  They measure about 13".  I will attempt to make a couple bigger ones too.  So fun!

Here's a shot of the bin that's holding the items for the engagement party.

Go HERE to check out the other work desks.  Lunch Lady Jan is still hosting the WOYWW while Julia the regular host of the blog is recovering from a medical procedure.  Since I started posted here, I have yet to correspond with her yet.  I still wish her well on her recovery.

  7. Wow, Dorlene. Are you a party decorator? Or just helping friends out? I LOVE those bows. Thanks for stopping by my blog. As to the organizing... I have learned how to 'dive in' without having a panic attack from Tiffany Spaulding - creator of the Scrap Rack. Even if you do not use the scraprack, the organization classes take you step by step through the process. You won't get it all done at once but you can take the class over and over to keep you motivated until you are happy with where you are. If you've not heard of her, you can check things out at Hugs and Creative Blessings! Kelly #32
