Organize your Stuff: Week 21(round 4): WOYWW 115 & Pens & Pencils

Well, it is that time again! Time for WOYWW where we show off our work spaces…warts and all!

Here is our space today…

To get more spaces with their crafting, sewing, and more, please visit Julia...looking out of her house no less... at the Stamping Ground for the list!

We have been busy in our scrap room today. Creative Me is in card mode right now, and totally in love with the new Graphic 45: The Magic of OZ. This card was made for the Tuesday Trio design team’s Sketch 80: Women. And who better than Dorothy to represent! She did not sit in her house and wait to be rescued. Rather, she…and her little dog too…went off to find answers. She rescued herself, and a lot of others along the way.

The bonus Dorothy’s on the desk are destined for Operation Write Home (so that the troops can write their loved ones). Creative Me also made a tutorial today to show how to get text to scraps- without a stamp. For some of you, this is a no brainer (scarecrow pun intended). For those who have never tried, maybe this bit of wisdom (tin man) will give you the courage (lion) to do so!

First: Print your text in the desired font/ font size.

Step 2: Using repositionable adhesive, place your scrap of paper over the text.

Step 3: Re-run the page through your printer. Voila!




As for pens and pencils, the POW apologizes for prematurely showing our Copic Storage (as we were SO excited to have them delivered by the mail man). However, we did let OCD Me play on the internet, and are now the proud owners of the Copic Color Wheel (Fabulous spouse did remark on the number of blank spaces and how we are destined to be poor for years to come…he knows the shopping habits of the Inner Hoarder way too well!) and blank color chart.

Filling out the chart…yes, *sigh* that is all the Copics that we own… gives Creative me a good idea of what the color will actually look like rather than guessing from the cap.

Finally, our baby is growing up! Oldest Child helped to MC last night's Court of Honor for his Boy Scout Troop, where he earned 6 Merit Badges and was recognized for achieving two rank advancements (First Class and Star Scout).

Happy Wednesday!

I agree it’s good to have your own colour chart and I have one for my Promarkers, although there are still a lot of blank spaces on there. Guess I should do something about that, Lol!

Very cute card!

voodoo vixen said...

Mention the word Hoarder to me and I start shifting about in my seat nervously ever since watching the series on TV... I guess all those peeps must have started somewhere and look what happened?? I then go into crazy housewife mode for a couple of hours until the effects of said program wear off... then its back to normal for the room of stash!!
Congrats on your son - well done indeedy!!

Looks like it was a very happy Tuesday for your son - congrats to him! Like the style of your card, but so not into Dorothy et al..I do like the notebook edge, I must do that more.

Doone said...

a moggie = a cat

okienurse said...

cute card! I think all the husbands of crafters/artists look forward to beans and rice for the next hundred years while we buy and hoard all these goodies that only God knows how we will all use before going on to our heavenly rewards...Love the CTMH stamps. I decided to get the boxes to house them and kind of wish now I hadn't. Thanks for sharing! Vickie

Linda said...

That is a great card! And congrats to your son!

Tracy said...

I am loving that Dorothy stamp. What a great card.
As for the Copic chart....that was my downfall. I need to all the colours now to fill it in, teehee.
But just think some buy 3 coffee a day...that equals to 1 marker a day ;) Good think I hate coffee, lol.

Amy said...

That is a super cute card! Love that you are donating them to Operation Write Home....such a great cause!!

Becky said...

Hmmm, there's something very calming about your workspace today. I love looking at it :) Loving your card too. I currently have a thing for spirals.

Congrats to your oldest. He looks so handsome!

Oh, and that's what worries me about Copics, I would have to have them all.

Wipso said...

Neet said...

Must seek out that paper from Graphic 45 - enjoy!
Nice to see son growing up and receiving those merits. (I was a Girl Guide (UK) for years and only retired when I felt it was time to give way to younger ideas).
Thanks for sharing- Neet #19

Morti said...

WTG on Oldest doing so well! Am now going to go and find the colour wheel, as although I have the chart, I don't have the wheel and I think I must "need" it....

Thanks for stopping by!
