Organize your Stuff: Week 5 (round 5): WOYWW #128


Well, it is that wonderful time of the week where we wander the world and whip up some WOYWW (What’s on your work desk Wednesday) love for our fellow crafters!

This is our work desk today…

Our scraps are still not organized (*Sad face*). However, they are getting better… (I'm not dead yet...) The POW even made OCD Me put the dreaded scrap pile on the left into the picture.

For other savvy WOYWW'ers, hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground!

This week we have been working on finishing up Fabulous Spouse’s Iraq album as we only have about six weeks until he leaves for Afghanistan. Six weeks! Aaagggghhhhh!

We also put together our Design Team card for Tuesday Trio Sketch# 93: Autumn. Creative Me was in a truly zen place when she got to work on this sketch. This card is made from our scrap pile with a white scrap inked up for our moon.

The copper leaves arrived just that morning (along with the words and the acorn) from our monthly Heartstring Designs kit. They were inked up with Copic markers (which have alcohol inks inside)!

PA Me totally blames Creative Me for our not cleaning. Inner Hoarder did not help either. We think she opposite of helped by locking OCD Me and the POW in the closet and then batting her eyelashes lovingly at Fabulous Spouse to take her to the CKC Scrapbooking vendor faire.

With a hypnotized Fabulous Spouse in tow, we increased rather than decreased our stash of scrappy goodness. Most of our buys were Afghanistan related. However, there are no photographs…so in true Mission Impossible fashion, that he can disavow this at a later date.

Also, Illusive Middle Child got his second place trophy from the football season that would never end (we have been playing since August 1st!). This Sunday will wrap up cheerleading as well with the league indoor cheer championships! Woo Hoo! Wish us luck!!!

Did you hypnotise your hubby before you entered the store or did he just glaze over after hours of being dragged around?? Lol. Blimey, those 6 weeks will just fly by before he goes to Afghanistan, make the most of them.. May he travel and return safely.
Hugs, LLJ #45 xx

Your card is lovely, I really like the leaves and how you have them blowing across the card.

If you like scary, jump off the couch show, you have to check out Walking Dead :)
I have to check out Terra Nova, I have never heard of it.

Ohhh Snap said...

Busy week! (love the Monty Python reference). Sounds like you are on track for the album. #23

Elizabeth said...

Lovely post - enjoyed reading it immensely though had to check what PA meant again :) Batting eyelashes usually does it - and my DH goes into a catatonic state too as soon as I mention craft shopping :) The Afghanistan album is looking good - love maps, and the swirling leaves on your card are lovely - a great use of your scraps. Hope you have a great week. Elizabeth x #78
