Oh yeah! My desk this week...
more tags you can see here, the 6x6" butterfly journal pages, learned to weave and made some rings and pendants in a beading class!
I had someone ask about my cutting machines and especially about the Big Shot Pro. Question was why do I need a Vagabond (on cutting cart to left of desk), a Big Shot, and a Big Shot Pro and what the differences were? I also have a Cricut.
The Vagabond is electric and I use it a lot when I have to cut a lot of pieces out of the same die cause it saves my poor arthritic hands some pain after a marathon of cutting out bits and pieces. The Big Shot rarely gets used (it was my first machine) and I probably should sell it but I save it for back up. Those two machines will handle all the Bigz steel blade and thin cut dies, regular sized embossing folders, and strip dies. The Big Shot Pro handles all the those dies plus the larger 12"x12" steel dies and the 8"x8" embossing folders. I can also cut 3-4 different die cuts at the same time or more then one strip die at a time which really helps when I am in a hurry. The Pro will handle Accucut and other broad platform dies so I can cut bigger things out.

If you would like to participate in WOYWW this week go check out Stamping Ground and Julia will tell you how you too can layout your desk and crafty possessions for everyone to have a good snoop through. I love seeing other peoples desks and projects they are working on and really miss it when I can't participate.
Okay I am out of here! It is just about 2 am my time and I am bone tired tonight... I am hearing my bed calling my name! Hope everyone enjoys their week and I will be back in the morning to go blog hopping and snooping on others desks. If you visit my blog and leave a comment I promise to make it by your desk this week!
