Organize your Stuff: Week 13 (round 5): WOYWW 140

Is it Wednesday already? It is one of those double edged swords these days. We find that the days are flying bye, even though each individual one takes forever! So, as we blink, we find that it is What’s On your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) time again. The Fabulous Julia at the Stamping Ground hosts this adventure of spying and peeking at wonderful artists around the world and the spaces where they entertain their muses.
If you look, you can see *gasp* a layout at which Creative Me is still working. The POW, motivated by Super Bowl Weekend (*Go Giants!*) wanted to scrap our plethora of football pictures. However, three months of three kids at play is over 1000 pictures to upload. Then, there is the issue of Costco actually printing them… So, the POW not wanting to lose momentum grabbed our Holiday Party pictures for Creative Me to use.
Creative Me was already warmed up and in the zone after completing this card for our Design Team entry for Tuesday Trio Sketch#105: Using Kraft to Craft! Creative me broke out our Tim Holtz and CTMH stamps and some Momento ink to bring plain Kraft paper from drab to Fab! as Week 13 is stamp week.

If you can’t tell by all the stamps on the desk, the Inner Hoarder has a little bit of a stamp problem. (just a little, teeny, tiny one).

As for the family, OCD Me has begun to get the house back from the brink of Chaos after the power outage and four days of living like cave people. Why does it take such little time for the kids to undo that which takes OCD Me and the POW forever to accomplish?

Fabulous Spouse is fitting in fine at his new home in Afghanistan. He has even gotten his first care packages…even though they are taking about 8 days to travel the world. Also, he has had snow! Here he is next to the snowman that the Germans made this week.

As a family, we celebrated the Super Bowl. Illusive Middle Child was pulling for the Patriots… because his Dad is a Patriot…but the rest of us were rooting for the Giants (Girl Friday because of Madagascar and “All Hail the New York Giants”).

The family was undecided on the commercial winner. It was a toss-up for us between the Naked M&Ms and Dog with the Doritos as hush money.

Other than that it has just been the same ol’ routine. The POW has yet to find the clone who is supposed to help with the driving. PA Me must have lost her in the power outage. Also, the leftovers are breeding in the refrigerator again. We may have won the battle, with a total fridge cleanout, but we are loosing the Food War!

Now have a great WOYWW day! Happy Hopping!

Love that card Amanda, especially the mini page at the left - does it open like a book or is it just for decoration. Glad your DH is settling down in Afghanistan - it must be worrying for all of you but bet you are proud of him as well.
Love your desk and I spy a colour wheel - just what I want.

I was rooting for the Giants too, since my beloved Packers fell earlier. The naked M & Ms was my fav this year although anything with dogs makes me happy! Gorgeous stamp work! ~Happy WOYWW # 30, Robin Panzer Art Studio 33 (ps. the numbers changed, someone must have deleted so you are now 37 instead of 38 if you're leaving your number. I'm glad you did, it makes it much easier to visit back!)

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Power cuts are a major pain, but four days?? What on earth happened. Did your energy suppliers cut the cable or something? And it's boring having to eat all the stuff out of the freezer... hope it improves soon!

I enjoyed reading this post. You certainly wear many hats! The scrapbook layout looks nice. And oh my, trying to choose a few photos out of many must really be a challenge!

I watched until Half Time -- I thought Madonna bombed bad..... Didn't see either commercial you mentioned - may have to pop over to you tube to check them out.

Happy WOYWW

There's alotof juggling to do while you're other half is away, huh. Made easier when you know that he's settling, I'm sure.
Love your DT piece, it's gorgeous. And I don't know where to start when you say about 1000 sporty photos...I feel faint!
