Organize your Stuff Week 19 (round 5): WOYWW 146


Whether the weather be hot, or whether the weather be not, Happy Wednesday! It is that time again when we take time out of our day to snap that picture of our happy craft place in all its glory…sometimes neat…oft times not (we raise our hand at that one!). This fabulous peek-fest has been coordinated by our lovely Julia at the Stamping Ground. Come pop on over to her place to see over a hundred fabulous places and crafty spaces.

Here is our disaster area…
Federal funds are tied up in committee, but hazmat suits have been issued and TLDs must be donned at all times. PA Me does not really seem fazed by this. She figures that it will sort itself out when Creative Me needs more space. …besides OCD Me is busy doing laundry, dishes, and keeping the kids' schedules straight!

Stamps:Avocado Arts, paper: CTMH, button: unknown
ink: Momento & Copic, twine: Queen & Co., punch: Fiskars
Creative Me does not mind the mess. It speaks to her Mojo Muse (this definitely does not make OCD Me happy). So, this is the card that Creative Me was able to craft for her Design Team Entry for this week’s Tuesday Trio, Sketch 111: Something torn. Creative Me just loves this Avocado Arts stamp set…and living in the Pacific Northwest… AKA: Starbucks land, we can foresee this being used often!
*A POW PSA (Public Service Announcement): The rest of this post is family, so skip to the end if you just came for the peek.*

Well, this week, the world was green, and not in a let’s hold hands and recycle kind of way. It was St. Patrick’s Day. Therefore, everything, including the Front itself was Irish…if just for a day.  Word from the Front was that those in Her Majesty’s Royal Army were issued shamrocks.

The rest of the lads and lasses had to find another way to represent and show a little wearing o’ the green.

Our little clan back stateside wore green as well (although the POW was quite sure that we were going to have to put the Come Hither on them before we could get a family shot).

They also had some green “brostaches”…the Oldest Child begged to be disavowed and not posted… even though he took the extras to school to share with his friends.

It has been a total Irish weekend.  Dress up for school on Friday, Disney's Darby O'Gill and the Little People for Pizza and a movie night on Saturday, loaded baked potatoes on Sunday, and Guiness beef stew and Guiness molasses bread on Monday!

We hope that you enjoyed yours as much as we enjoyed ours!

Gracious, you gutys celebrated St Patricks Day harder and for longer than anyone I know over here! I love the sight of your desk, it's a wonder to me that you ever get a chance to sit at it. IS that notepad edge punch new? I have a small one and love it, over use is a distinct possibility!

Awesome card and love the green mustaches! I hope you sort out your desk issues. I agree - sometimes I love the mess because it means I'm creating and using stuff but then I can't stand to create with no space so something has to give. Hope you have a crafty Wednesday!

I loved catching a peep at the desk. Yet I have to admit, peeking in at family stuff was even better! LOVE the brostaches and how fun to celebrate St. Pat's day all weekend!

Lisa-Jane said...

I wish I knew some people who celebrated as I would love to join in! It sounds like fun even though I don't understand brostaches. Love the card too and I want that punch! #77

I need a green moustache too!! What great kids you have to join in the fun like that - even the eldest, who must be at the awkward teen stage :) You celebrate way more than anybody here does, good for you. And Guinness molasses bread sounds really different, is it like a dark rye bread??
Hugs, LLJ #68 xx

LOL. If that's a disaster area, my workspace would be condemned.

Fun St. Patrick's photos. They will be neat to scrapbook.

It's funny - Julia asks us to keep our posts brief, but we all love to hear about more than just the desks! Gives us more of an insight into people - LOL

Love the green, love the card (it seems that coloured, abandoned lines on white paper are de rigeur this week - go see Spyder's blog!) love this post....

Love that punch. I have the smaller one also, your desk looks like a busy place. But, the party looks like more fun.

Neesie said...
