What's on Your Workdesk this 5th day of Christmas?

OMGosh!  I can't believe my workspace actually can look this good.  Take a good look, it is staying  this tidy for all of one week.....lol   I do clean up, it just never stays this way for more than a few minutes.  My DH said he had forgotten what color the surface of my desk was...hehehe. It will stay this way until Thursday  Yikes I am going thru withdrawals.  I have several projects that need to be done, I know my space will be back to normal in no time..I know silly me..gotta have the clutter to create.  This neatness is blocking my mojo...my desk looks so naked and lonely, it needs stuff all over it to be cozy, warm and happy.  

I visited everyone again last week.  Oh, wait a minute I actually visited some more than once.  I do think Julia was testing us!  Sure she forgot to add Mr Linky, she just wanted us all to go a little crazy...haha    I visited quite a few before I got a number.  By pure luck I ended up with #5, although I was more like #50..lmao.  I guess it added some excitement.  Guess I am truly addicted to WOYWW that Julia's got going every Wednesday at The Stamping Ground..I did kinda freak at first when I couldn't find Mr Friggin Linky!!!!!! oops.. 
The only reason my workspace has stayed tidy is that I have been organizing my stash too!!!  Yikes can't wait to mess it up.  Yes, thats a Cricut Expression underneath that purple blankie.  Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.  I can hardly wait to go on blog-a-bout to see what's on your workdesk..lol.

What's on your Workdesk Wednesday? 81

OMGosh I did it again!  I managed to visit everyones blog and left a comment on all but one...the link was bad..sorry.  I get a real kick when visiting, never know what you might find.  There's always something to see and really fun!

Thanks to Ms Julia Dunnit at the Stamping Ground for starting  WOYWW.  I am hooked!  Let's see if I can visit everyone again this week.  Thanks to everyone for sharing your workspace,  can't wait to go on my blog-a-bout!

My little corner is slightly better this week.  There's actually room to work.  As you can see I am working on Valentine's projects.  Had to turn my finished treat bags as they are a surprise.  I will share them in January.  I included a pic of the floor, most of it has been tracked and  equally deposited all over the rest of the house...oops.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.   Happy Holidays and creative crafting in the New Year to all you wonderful peekers!!!!

What's on your Workdesk? Wednesday 80

Well, I guess what they all said is true. This WOYWW at the Stamping Ground is addicting.  My workdesk is a little neater than it was the last time.  It was clean for about a minute..lol

I was in the middle of putting away all my crop stash.  As you can see I didn't get far.   I got some of it out of the totes and thats it.  Had to rush off to the little kiddies Christmas Program.  Now I am too tired to do anymore.  Maybe next time it will be clean....probably not. I have also added a pic of the ornaments that  I was working on last week.   

Call me crazy...I actually visited every single blog last week.  That's right all 123 of them.  I left comments on all but a few.  I tried to leave a comment on every one.  I give up if the word verification booted me out...no time to mess with that.. sorry.  Won't sign up for hosting sites just to leave a comment either.

Allthough it seemed to take forever visiting I had loads of fun.  Hopefully I won't get to frustrated with word verification this time around.  My goal will be to vistit everyone again...OMG x 10..

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday 79

This is my first posting for WOYWW at the Stamping Ground.  It's about an  hour until it is officially Wednesday in my time zone.  What the heck it's Wednesday everywhere else already right?  Besides, if I wait till it's truly Wednesday my time I will be in bed  or when I wake up everyone will have posted already. 

Julia can kick me to the curb if I am not following the rules.  Are there really any rules?   This is what my desk will look like when I wake up in the morning.  After all, I am in bed already writing this post.. It will stay this way  unless the Crafting Police come in the middle of the night and make me clean up...LMAO

I look forward to actually participating and leaving comments this time.  I have been enjoying every one's posting's for a while now.  It is such fun to see the diverse creative spaces...lol

My space is always chaotic when I am working on a mass production project, OK every project!   I spend a lot of  time looking for what got lost in the mess!  Needless to say my work area is always full of lost treasures.  My DH just hates the stuff that tends to migrate to the floor while I am working.  I do clean any non workspace like the floor's chair's etc. every day when I am done.

This little area is designated as my Ornament production area.  I have been making these for my clients.  I hope this organized chaos doesn't scare everyone. 

Wow, it's actually almost midnight!  Yippee I guess my post will be on Wednesday after all.  Better get to it then.


Hey, it doesn't look as messy as I thought, it actually looks worse.  Oh well gonna click the publish post anyway! 

Thanks for stopping by and looking, Hugs Marjo

Merry Christmas Rupert Claus Card

LOL x10:  I woke up this morning and saw my original card and was mortified!  I try to post my creations hours if not a day after it is finished.  That gives me time to make any adjustments to my design.  I posted the original card at 3:00 AM.  Duh..no wonder it had to be fixed!  As you can see Rupert looks much better in the adjusted version here.  I guess I learned a valuable lession...hahaha

Here's my fixed card.  Thank goodness for UnDO!!

I just love my Rupert Claus digi, heck I love all the little dragon's.  They are all so darn cute!  I actually embossed the red tree with my cuttlebug cut it out then embossed it with embossing powder.  I think it looks flocked...lol  I had fun creating this card.  I do believe that the dragon's make me smile while I am crafting..go figure..  I entered my card into the following challenges:
