Organize your Stuff Week 22 (round 5):WOYWW 150

Well, last Wednesday, we were on Spring Break and left home shortly after posting. So, now it is Wednesday again and while PA Me and OCD Me fight over whether to do laundry or dishes the POW decided to sneak on over to the computer and get up our What’s on your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) picture. Travel over to Julia’s Stamping Ground to see all the other fabulous Crafty Places, Spaces, and projects…and to make a friend or two!
Here is our messy crafty space…

Creative Me really needs to pick up after herself more! Here is her card for this week…

Paper: Bazzill; Stamp: MME; ink: Momento;
Tape & paint: Tim Holtz; floss:DMC; buttons: misc. 
This is a pretty cool card for Tuesday Trio’s Sketch 115: Frames. Recently, Creative Me had heard that using the Fabulous Mr. Tim Holtz’s tapes with his crackle paints had fabulous results… and the results were awesome until Creative Me stood the card up and the crackle started popping off! Timmy Fans of WOYWW, do you know the trick?

Anyway, Creative Me is pouting now, and PA Me has decided that she needs some quiet space, so Dies this weekend.

*POW warning: Family stuff from here on out. Scroll to the end if just here for the desk ;) *

This was an interesting week at the Front. Fabulous Spouse’s base was amongst those targeted by the Taliban. The good news, nobody hurt, everyone survived the late boxed dinners that were delivered to their work spaces, and the Office Dodgeball team actually won a game. The bad news, Fabulous Spouse’s visitors were rerouted, and no new pictures for this week…except my newest flowers sent from the Front. (PS-Girl Friday is seriously convinced that they are for her).

As for the family, this week was Spring Break…a holiday from school. The Scary Orb in the Sky a.k.a. The Sun came out and we had fabulously warm days that popped into the 60s! We also took a trek down to see the rescue wolves at Wolf Haven (on the only rainy day of course!)…

…as the educational component to our three day stay at the Great Wolf Lodge.

Never heard of it? It is a water park …

That is also Harry Potter-esque world called Magi Quest that has you running up and down five flights of stairs and waiving your wands...

...to complete quests.

Then we got home just in time to send Oldest Child off to go camping with the Boy Scouts, and take Illusive Middle Child to a soccer game (which they finally won!).  Now we are back to school and homework and the regular run around!  Have a great week!

Amanda, I love your creative space! As for the crackle effect, I have had some experience with decorator's crackle glaze and emulsion and acrylic but not on paper I'm afraid. It may be your substrate is too flexible.

I love all your personalities! Always makes me smile! Thanks for sharing the fun family photos too.

Thinking of you with your hubby in Afghanistan. Our nephew has just gone out.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, and glad you like my zentangle.

Happy WOYWW,

Loving the card but can't help because I am not a Timmy fan (don't repeat that on WOYWW as I may be beheaded for high treason LOL)
Looks like you and the kids had a ball over the Easter break.
Happy WOYWW

Its good to hear that your hubby and his mates are ok, that must be hard for you to sit back wait and wait for news. Sometimes the spouse does it hard.

Love your work and I am still curious about what is lining the back wall of your desk. LOL
