Thursday


I missed my "Work Desk Weds".  Not because I wasn't working , but because I was.  I finished all 93 of my Christmas cards.  A Batch cards for sale and started making Christmas presents.  I also tried something fun with my embossing machine ! I had cut a lovely piece of gold wrapping paper the Wrong size for the gift I was going to wrap, so I cut it into 5x6 pieces and put them through my embossing machine with wonderful results!


After Embossing

Cards made with the sheets: Luke getting in the picture....

Not getting enough attention, it is WALK time!  and Yes that is how tall he is, his big head over my desk!  When he wants attention he puts his head under my elbow and flips it up!



A set of shadow boxes I made for my mom:



 
 

 
These are 4x6 and my mother is very fond of Asian art also.

 
I started organizing my Stickles and Liquid Pearls.  The stitckles here are resting on double sided dimensional tape that I use for card making, it is really some type of auto adhesive that is wonderful for working with.  And CHEAP. 4 dollars for a roll the size of an Album.
 
 
Here I used Velcro to put up my Liquid pearls on the underside of my ink pad hold which is on a wall at the side of my work desk.
 
I made this on Tuesday for the Oriental Stamp Arts Challenge:
 
And Now with getting on with the preparations for Christmas.  We won't be doing a lot of shopping this Christmas  and I won't be making Christmas dinner till next Thursday when Roy and Megan Come home.  Until then we are busy with caroling and Church events and making things and enjoying our Family and friends. I hope you are all enjoying this season.  For us Christmas is 365 days a year, We Celebrate Jesus every day and are thankful for all that he has done for us!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Amen Ginny 365 days a year!! we have hearts full of praise for our dear Lord Jesus, after all it is He who helps and keeps us throguh each of those days, which he gives us, as we look to Him in faith for that strength guding and keeping....

    and wow what else can I say... I really love those shadow boxes (already admired your card) and your number of stickles, pearls and pads quite blows my mind...
    I sometimes forget things re cheaper for crafters over there and UK, as our all have the post cost down under added to them..
    However would not swap where I live for anything it is the best place in the world, that I have ever seen, so far!!
