Organize your Stuff: Week 18 (round 4): WOYWW & Tools

Happy Wednesday! Sorry that last week was a one post-er, but kept waiting for that shot of Girl Friday and the missing tooth! Finally, here it is:
Her tooth fairy brought 5 “gold quarters” (5 one dollar gold coins, which according to the Illusive Middle Child, tooth fairies make…like Santa’s elves make toys) and a little Hello Kitty tin. After this though, she is on the reduced $1 per tooth rate. Not only did Girl Friday finally lose hers, but Illusive Middle Child lost yet another just tonight! (must remember to finish blog and go to bed before the tooth fairy comes!)

Here is our desk:

It is full of crafty things that Creative Me has been making. To skip ahead to other crafty desks, head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground.

First on Creative Me’s list of craftiness for this week, was our design team card for Tuesday Trio’s Sketch #77- Acrylic paint. We just LOVE these vintage Alice in Wonderland stamps from Clear Art Stamps and are always looking for an excuse to use them! Here, we painted our roses…er..brads red!


Next is a layout from Girl Friday’s 6th birthday. OCD Me really wants to get 2010 moved out of the D-ring temporary binder and into a permanent post bound. This was one of the missing layouts keeping us from calling it done (this and all of July and August). This is TRUE scrap booking, as all these paper blocks car scraps from previous layouts! Girl Friday even helped... it was her birthday after all, and helping is what Girl Fridays do best!


Finally, as you can see on our desk, we have been busy creating for our favorite charity, Operation Write Home using CTMH stamps. Girl Friday helped me put together these cards destined for our overseas troops so that they can write home... did I mention that our TV died this weekend, and the repair man does not come until tomorrow? No? Total family time in the cool rain that is our summer.  Oldest Child, who has been away from home for two weeks at camp almost had a coronary.


As for tools…OCD Me keeps our favorites in a scrapping tote for both ease of transport to crops and such, and ease of finding as Creative Me has a nasty habit of losing tools in plain sight on our desk mid project!

What are your favorite tools? My list will be up by Saturday…Pinky Swear! (We do not need to wait on pesky teeth this time!)

Way to go, Girl Friday!! Wish I had as good a helper as she obviously is :D Your red brad 'roses' were a clever idea, just perfect! Thanks for stopping by my post - I love my beach. I have to make the most of it when we're there as I live in a landlocked county in England, but we're 1.5 hours away from the south coast! x

When I was a kit it was just sixpence (in old money) that’s 2 ½ pence today so I think inflations has definitely hit the tooth fairy in a gig way Lol!

You have a great desk this week with lots going on, so thanks for sharing and thanks for stopping by my blog too.

Happy WOYWW
