Organize your Stuff (round 5): WOYWW 155

Well, Wednesday is here again, and that means that that we are one week away from the WOYWW’s bloggiversary! What is WOYWW? It is What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday… when the crafty bloggers from around the globe get together and link up to show their spaces and (if we are lucky) some of the crafts. Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see the whole list!

Here is a peek at our desk…

Creative Me is busy at work on our WOYWW Anniversary ATC…so, no peeking!

If you want to swap outside of the link up next week, contact us at

Creative Me has also been busy at work stretching her journaling skills by starting the 31 Days class by Ali Edwards (who also teaches the One Little Word Class) over at Big Picture Classes.

The POW likes this class, because we can feel like we are multi-tasking…being on the computer (as we seem to spend much of our days these days) and digitally scrapbooking our pages for the daily prompts. Creative Me likes the journaling challenge. OCD Me likes the fact that everything looks so neat and crisp, and the Inner Hoarder is just hoping for the chance to go digi scrap shopping.

(**The POW’s Warning: Family stuff here on out. Skip to the end if you were just here for the desk**)

Over on the Front, Fabulous Spouse’s Tour Guide Barbie days are over as he has been scooped up to be a member of a General’s staff. He found out on Thursday, and had to pack out by Sunday, and is now in the process of checking in to the American Base and his new (read longer hour with less atta boys) job, and is back to being the new man in the room and on the top bunk. So, I have another layout from the Joint Visitors Bureau instead of pictures...

This was our birthday week, and so The POW let it be all about us for a change. The little guys took their birthday mom out for dinner at The Ram (mom still had to pay though) and a slice of birthday ice cream pie.

Oldest Child was out of the house on a backpacking overnighter with the Boy Scouts, but we made up for it by going out for birthday dinner #2 (actually on our birthday) at the local Japanese Steakhouse… a once or twice a year treat for the kids.

Girl Friday and Illusive Middle Child started summer prep swim lessons. Girl Friday just happens to be the only girl in her class this year, but that does not make her any less girly or pink.

Illusive Middle Child had his last cub scout meeting as a Bear Scout. To celebrate, we made smores (roasted marshmallows in a graham cracker sandwich with chocolate. A week from Thursday he becomes a Weblo Scout (aka- junior Boy Scout). The Patrol that they chose…Atomic Squirrels (the patch glows in the dark).

SO that is our week.  Off to check out the desks! Leave me a message and I will do my darndest get back to you!

Love getting a weekly update on you and your family. See you next week!

Mary Jo Rhoda said...

Fun family photos! :)
And that class by Ali sounds great!
I know I could probably use some help with journaling at times. It is one of the harder aspects of scrapbooking for me.

Rachel K said...

Thank you so much for stopping by and being so nice. I love your desk. It makes me want to stop by and play.

(And yes, I was just there for the desk and skipped to the end.)

Your journaling class sounds interesting Amanda.
I had a dabble with digital scrapbooking myself last year but didn’t really take to it but I was actually looking at kits yesterday and thinking I might just give it another go.

Sounds like you have a nice birthday weekend with no less than ‘two’ meals out………and an ice cream birthday cake….that’s one spoilt girlie if you ask me!

Have a good week and ……
Happy Crafting!
