My Workspace is a crazy mess, but at least I got a cute card made out of the deal. Just say'n.

So...it's Wednesday and that, as usual, means it's time to share my workspace. It's a mess. I KNOW! You are totally shocked by that! HA! Or not. Whatever. BUT...it's only a mess because of happy things! You see, I got to take a little jaunt to a scrapbook store with a friend on Saturday and that led to new stuff and that, my friends, leads to me wanting to USE said new stuff! Novel concept, I know! HA! So....

WOYWW 11/23/2011


Here it is in all it's glory! Ahhhh....! I really do love that silly mess, you know. I know some people like everything nice and neat and can't work in a mess, and I'm all for a nice clean table, but sometimes that mess just makes me smile because it reminds me that I'm truly passionate about what I do. I just love it.

You Are My Favorite


And here is the most recent card to come from that mess. This is the card I made for The Hubbums for his birthday yesterday. He loves maps, so that background paper was perfect! And, afterall, he IS my favorite!!!!

You are My Favorite (detail)

You Are My Favorite (detail 2)


And that's all for today, folks! I may or may not post again this week. We shall see how it goes. I will be creating during the break for SURE, though! I hope all of my American friends have a very very Happy Thanksgiving! I plan on eating more of Mom's mashed potatoes than any person should! YAY! Many Blessings, my friends! Many Blessings!

Jingle Out!

This is a very cute card...It is funny how almost everything you own ends up on your craft desk right...and then you have like this little space to craft in...funny how it works that way...I always have that same problem....

Messy desks are the best, mine is a bit out of control at the moment and I think I should ban embossing powder from my room... can you see the floor in your space???

Love how you did the bow! have a great holiday weekend! I hear you like your mom's mashed potatoes?! :)

Kai said...

If you get any - and I mean ONE SINGLE IOTA - cuter, I can't take it! LOL! I was SOOOOO exhausted (I've been cooking, entertaining 4 senior ladies, decorating the tree, etc.) since 3 A.M.! I needed a short break & I headed right over HERE because I knew you would revive me. YOU DID! Thank you! Love the work space because it makes my sweet lil' friend HAPPY! Also love the card. Bet your husband did, too! Most of all, love YOU! Eat a bite of your mom's mashed potatoes for me, okay?

Marjie Kemper said...

Seriously? That is an adorable stamp! Love how you've used it with the map paper... it's perfect!

Karen B. said...

Oh goodness, you did get an awesome card out of that! It's what my area looks like as well. Mine is more concentrated, it is a smaller space. Looking forward to having some time tomorrow to clean it up!

Nancy W said...

Adorable card and my work area is a major wreck right now. And it's driving me nuts. Started cleaning it up so my nieces can create when they visit Friday :) happy Thanksgiving friend!

Annie said...

They say you can't make an omelette without breaking eggs and I think crafting is a bit like that...you can't make fab cards like that without making a bit of mess :-)

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah Jingle gal, I'm totally utterly comfortable with your working table; and you're right - it really really shows your enthusiasm and passion...and there's no shame there! Cute card.

Shoshi said...

Now that's what I call a messy desk!!! Obviously a productive one, though. The map card is great. Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving. Happy belated WOYWW, Shoshi #70
