Organize your Stuff: Week 8:(round 5): WOYWW 132 Vegas Edition


Today is Wednesday, and that means WOYWW (What’s On Your Work desk Wednesday). Today we come to you from the fabulous Las Vegas! Fabulous Spouse is on travel, and we are here with him…thank you Grammy!... and thus our work desk for this week was supplied by the Las Vegas Hilton!



We turned the whole room into a giant workshop, and went a little crazy. Good news is, December daily is half done (which is good news as so is the month!). Sorry, this is a heap of pictures. For other desks (with hopefully less pictures) visit Julia at the Stamping Ground!

Also, this week, we had to use a technique that we had not used in a long time for Technique Tuesday’s Sketch #97. This was a tough one for Creative Me, as we use most of our techniques rather regularly. However, if truth be told, we could not remember the last time we broke out our embossing powders (because they are just so darned messy! LOL!). and Voila! Technique found!

On the home front, we are preparing for the Holidays in earnest. We have seen Santa… (Fabulous Spouse’s Christmas party) and made gingerbread houses (more went into the tummies than onto the houses. Of that, we can assure you.

This week is kits. We will try to tackle them when we get back. Remember, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas! *Wink!*

PS-next week we will have the recipe for snickerdoodles as so many have asked about them!

I have to admit, I used embossing powder for the first time last week, too. It really IS messy........

What happens in Vegas is worth scrapbooking about (grin). Happy WOYWW from # 5.

Hmmm...Vegas is an interesting place but the two time I went out there I was more then happy to get home and unlike what Elizabeth said, what happened in Vegas stayed in Vegas. I wish I had gone with my husband but I went with too many single(and not) friends that I haven't traveled with since! Can't wait to see your pics next week. Thanks for sharing! Have a great week and Happy Holidays! Vickie #35

Elizabeth said...

Crafting in Las Vegas ... you're not alone because the Crafty Elf is there too ... but crafting in the Hilton has got to be a first!!! I'm with the majority - you have to craft about what happened in Vegas, you can't tease us like that, it's not fair. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #66
