Organize your Stuff: Week 11/12 (round 5): Stickers & WOYWW 137


What!?! Is it Wednesday again? I guess that it What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) time again! To see other desks, spaces, and cool crafty goodness, pop over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and peek around the world!

Time has slipped away from us, as the Pacific Northwest has seen it’s first snow this weekend… all weekend. OK, since Sunday! LOL! Are you sure it is Wednesday, because we still have not seen a plow or a school bus. Hence, the lack of a Monday post. We were on the boot and glove brigade duty! LOL! (The POW is pretty sure that we are almost out of our hot chocolate reserves. Armageddon better not come tomorrow, or we will be woefully short on the non-perishables).

So, how did Creative Me leave the desk today (Ok, on Sunday…before the one inch of Snow-mageddon)? Not too bad actually.
Since some of you have asked, yes, those are all folders of clear stamps in their double decker baby milk crates. Creative Me is a total stamp addict, and it makes it easier to grab them when they are so close!

Also, since PA Me got us distracted by the shiny fluffiness outside, we owe you a peek at our sticker storage. We have two 3-ring binders with clear page protectors stuffed with stickers. Post it notes serve as moveable tabs for the sections. (That was OCD Me’s idea).

But what did we create?

Our design team entry for Tuesday Trio’s Sketch #102: Winter could not have come at a more apropos time. Snowman anyone?


As for the family, Fabulous Spouse is wrapping up his training with the “big guns”. The boys are green with jealousy. It will not be long now, and he will actually be overseas, and a little harder to get pictures from. Fabulous man that he is though, we are sure that he will come through for us! (*hint, hint, Baby!*)

Saturday was our first basketball day. Illusive Middle Child was the team ball thrower inner (what position is that? We never played and must not have been paying that close of attention during practice). We think that it was because he was the tallest on his team by almost a head.

Girl Friday hopped and bopped and totally abandoned her assigned person to chase the ball every which way. She LOVED it. Ironically, she was the smallest on her team! Afterwards, Illusive Middle Child was convinced that his team lost (because they were not aggressive enough) and Girl Friday was convinced that hers won (because they scored lots of baskets). Neither kept score. So, we guess that it just is a matter of perspective.

Oh, and this is how we spend our weekend evenings, relaxing on Skype with Fabulous Spouse and trying to conquer the world (or at least getting out our frustrations on a few unsuspecting cultures) in a friendly game of Civilization V with him. Gotta love a man who lets you conquer his world! (Well, unless he manages to conquer mine! LOL!)

Off to hop and visit the World! Won’t you join us?

That is a cute little snowman - and the card ain't bad either!! LOL I love the swirls and stars around the base of the snowman, was that two separate stamps??
Glad to know your DH is ok - my G3 was very envious about the big guns too....
Hugs, LLJ #43 xx

Annie said...

Fab card...it's a bit brrrrr here but no snow as yet. You appear to have one optimist and one pessimist in your family :-)
Have fun,

Your card is adorable! And I'm jealous of the snow! We love TX, but 65 degrees doesn't seem right in Jan. to this east coast girl!!

Sherry Edwards said...

Now that is a lot of clear stamps! How brilliantly organised you have them though. It sure looks cold outside from your photographs, stay safe and warm x

Thanks for already stopping by my desk earlier :)

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

We have cold, no where near as bad as OKie nurse so lovely frosts(see Lunch lady Jan) and today rain. No snow despite the threat but rapidly retrating bulbs after a very mild spell. I like autumn it is a long way away. Isn't skype a wonderful thing, I keep in touch with a close friend who lives in Switzerland through its magic :)

Katie said...

You have a wonderful and organized workspace! And it looks like you're having fun in the snow :)

I am so glad that last system went north and dumped snow there instead of the southern plains. I think Skype is the best thing. Kept me sane when my son was overseas. Enjoy the snow. Better stock up on some cocoa so you are ready for the new storm system to come in! Have a great week and thanks for sharing! Vickie #33

Great post - always fun to visit. I am having a rest from making little frocks - I have been making children's dressing up outfits for a friend instead!! Have a good week. x Jo

Princess Judy Palmer said...

All those stamps within reach. That's just crazy (but cool). I have to say I wondered what all those folders held.

Fun snowman card. That's as close to snow as I want to get. I'm a lizard and prefer a sunny rock.

Pauline said...

Love the Snowman card , the storage for your stamps is fab to ! Have a good week :-)

Whimcees said...

Hello!

Cute card! I love snowmen images! We are waiting for a big snowstorm to start tonight - kind of scary. Great photos of your snow. Wishing you a happy day!

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

Tammy said...

Love your card! That snowman is so cute! Look at all that snow and yes, I KNOW how much snow that is for Seattle. When I was at WWU, the city shut down at just the threat of snow. Cars can't make it up the icy hills and there aren't enough plows. Ah, winter! :)

Sunshine Girl said...

Great card - how lovely to have snow too, we havent had any here yet.

Lou said...

Lovely snowman card, beautiful family. Hope you all have a good week Lou x
