WOYWW #398

Happy Hump Day!
It's Wednesday and I've been really good about posting my work area on the WOYWW (Stamping Ground) link each Wednesday.  Well, this week, I decided to mix it up.  I didn't take a photo of my craft room work area, but my actual (9 to 5) work desk.

Well, actually just the craftiness and fun stuff of my work desk.

These flowers were hand cut, drawn and layered using papers that should have been tossed.  Recycling at it's best LOL!  I watched some YouTube videos on making your own flowers and as I was on hold, I started cutting some out.  After cutting the flowers, I used a fine point black Sharpie and some highlighters to randomly color them.  I may do a video on making these because they are super easy and fun.  Plus a great way to use up scraps!

I altered this board awhile ago, see LINK here, and I love the quote on the scrapbook page to the right.  I made that page years ago on a Monochromatic challenge.  The frame to the left was made by a good friend of mine.  Oh yeah, and my hand written index card.  Apparently I'm on hold a lot at work, LOL.

This little album is made from toilet paper rolls.  This houses some of my favorite photos of my kiddos when they were little.  All of them are laughing.  It's a great Pick-Me-Up when I need it at work.

Check this link out to see more about this canvas.  This has been hanging in my cubicle since I won the First Place ribbon at our local festival.

The "pretties" on the corner of this frame are ribbon scraps I just can't toss.  Whenever I get a little something at work, instead of tossing the ribbons, I cut a little piece and tie it to the corner of this frame.  The heart charm was found and no one claimed it so I added it too.  This is a picture of my parents when they were in high school.  I love this picture of my mom pinning the corsage on my dad.
Click on over to Stamping Ground's blog to check out the other deskers.  You'll be amazed at all the wonderful things people are making.  Have a great week and stay warm.

  15. now that is a great 9 to 5 workspace you have there. Had I had one like that I might not have retired as soon as I did but I shared an office with people that would rather toss my art then preserve it! Sorry I am so late getting around but...I made it!!! Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my desk earlier! Vickie #54
