My ever changing work desk is once again on display for the WOYWW# 244 world wide blog hop, the fun starts here at Julia's work desk in the UK! Grab a cuppa and enjoy. Since I am doing this about 1 am EST I'll be doing my hop in the a little later in the day!! But I did want to join in now, it gets so busy as the day progresses!
At my sitting work desk I am making a few random "Use It up" birthday cards. I am finding I need about 100 feminine birthday 25 masculine and 15 kid cards a month now so that means I really need to keep making them all the time. Making these cards brought me to another conclusion.
I decided I was driving myself crazy. This is the last card made with my scraps. I whittled away my scraps to a mere 1/2pound or so. The rest that really were really good I put in a box to go to a friend of mine who will use them for one of her projects!.
I learned something in this: I need to stop "batching" card components and from now on what I don't use I am going to toss, I don't have the room to store bits. I'll keep the scraps only for the week and If I haven't used them I will donate them. Since I cut down my 12x12's I have a lot less designer paper left overs, so I'm just going to "let it go and be free" in the frugal sense, just make the cards in sets so there won't be scraps!
Any way after deciding to cut myself free from that little ball and chain, I organized my standing work are to get finished with a few projects and get those supplies out of my way.
My Finished birthday cards: 5x6 size
By The way, I am using glue about 90% of the time now and I am quite happy with the results. My layers are sticking much better and this week I only used a few feet of ATG tap instead of a half dozen rolls of ATG tape.
Check back tomorrow for some cards I made with a great new stamp set, So fun!! As long as the snow doesn't cut the power down for me to post!!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great day! Enjoy WOYWW#244!
