HA! From the looks of this desk shot I drink a lot while I work! I promise...the 'nip' bottles that you see are there to become future projects. Noooo...REALLY....I Prooooomise! LOL! You can also see the fabulous newsprint bags that I fell upon the other day! We were having dinner at Brew City and happened to order the right kind of beer and they happened to have glasses to giveaway due to a promotion the day before so they gave us a couple and they packed them in those AWESOME bags!!! I don't know what I was happier about...the newsprint fish & chip style bags or the free glasses! LOL!

I am currently working on two ATC's that you can sitting there from last night. One was heavily laden with Liquid Glass, so it had to dry overnight before I could continue and the other one just didn't get finished before I had to move on to other parts of life, so I get to play with those again, tonight! YAY!!!

Let's see...what else is there? Some Unity stamps that I pulled to do a card tonight or tomorrow night to post here on Friday, the fabric cuff off my dish washing gloves that came right off when The Hubbums was borrowing them to wash the dishes for me. He felt SOOO bad but as far as I was concerned, the dishes were done and I didn't have to do them...I can deal with the glove! HA! I think I may have to create a stuffy style doll just so she can wear that cuff as a skirt! And you also see some headbands and elastics that I picked up at the Target dollar spot to make some cute accessories! YAY!

She Could Go Anywhere as long as her nose was in a book


In addition to my desk, I have a tag to share with you today! This is made with a basic shipping tag and stamped with Scrolls Work stamps. I used #3041 - Carli's Chair, #4037 - Carli, and #5018 - Map. They are all stamped with distress ink, except the black portion which was done with Tombow marker. The book is simply vintage book pages with a cardstock cover and the tag is tied off with a bit of twine.

Don't forget that all stamps at Scrolls Work are currently 40% off for the going out of business sale! They will go down again, soon, but they are FLYING out the door, so if you have your eyes on something grab it while you can!

So, that is what I have for you this fine Wednesday! I hope you have a super fantastic day!!! Check out the other awesome workspaces at The Stamping Ground!
