WOYWW 267 - New Desk Action!

Hello dear friends.  I love Wednesdays.   It's the day we meet up at Julia's place, otherwise known as Stamping Ground.  Another week that desks are shared from around the world.

I'm still going through boxes and have made some progress.  I've taken two grocery bags full of books to the used bookstore and dropped off some household items at the local thrift store.  I'm happy with the progress I've made but it's definitely going slowly.

I was lucky enough to receive the ATC and Tag below from Debbie Rock.  Aren't they great!  Please visit her blog HERE.

I also received a card and tag from my pen pal Theresa.  She is one talented lady!
The desk is seeing some action, although not a lot.  There's copies of the little girl I used for my ATCs (which I'm making a few more) and also some of my photos that I plan to make into cards.  In the carousel are some Crayola brand oil colors.  I haven't played with them yet.
I love the photo of the cow checking me out.  Notice the stack of papers?  They were on sale a few weeks ago.  Other things I see are a Tim Holtz stencil, some of my Stampin' Up ink pads and a how to sheet from Hobby Lobby.
As always, I will visit those that end in the same number as me and those that visit me (please leave your number).  I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week.

Hi Kay! Thanks for dropping by my blog. It was a treat to see your name. I have lost track of so many friends with that change over to blogger. I prefer the Google friends and never seem to find time to read both!

Checked back on your blog. Can't leave multiple comments like I used to since got Windows 8. Just lets me leave one message till i close my blog and sign back in again. Major pain!

You got some lovely ATC's and have been knitting up a storm!

I loved all the pictures of doors, roofs, buildings and scenic places around your area. The architecture is amazing!

Hi there Kay! So good to hear from you and to see you using one of those carousels I'm still pondering over :-) Debbie's tags are amazing aren't they - I met Debbie at the crop and she's a lovely person and very talented.

Happy WOYWW my friend!

Good morning. I'm just doing a quick run round my favourite blogs before starting my sewing...and boy have I got some to do today :-)
What fab things you've got to show and tell this week. Friendship from all over the world is pretty special isn't it?

How do you keep your carousel looking so clean and white? Mine is decidedly grubby looking (maybe after being hit with one or two sprays :) and other things).
Lovely goodies you have been on the receiving end of, it's nice to share work isn't it.
Hugs and thanks for visiting me (and FS which you do regularly)

Hi Kay, Debbie did some awesome tags and ATC's didn't she? Great bargain I gather with the papers- I have so many and rarely use them in my cards anymore! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #64 xx

How are you liking your desk carousel? Sometimes I think about picking one up but I don't really have the space for it.
Good job of downsizing STUFF. It is always a great feeling to have less things and more space. Your workdesk is looking good with some fun stuff going on. Thanks for sharing your happy mail with us.

Connie said...

Hi Kay, It is so much fun going to the mailbox and finding something other than a bill or an advertisement, right :) I think that it is wonderful how you and your stamping pals exchange art.
I love the card that you send me with the wooden cross photo. You have a great eye for the camera.

Oh, and your desk looks wonderful . . . love the white organizers.

Have a wonderful week.
Connie :)

Hey Kay it always seems to go slower then we want silly tvs they can redo a whole house in half an hour lol your desk is looking good. I didn't know crayola made oil paints look forward to seeing how you like em. Fabby little tags you got there.
