WOYWW #307

Happy Wednesday!  It is a coolish wet morning this morning but the garden just seems to love all the rain!  Glad it did because the youngest cat didn't.  Poor Ghost I don't know what kind of life she had prior to coming to us as a stray but she is absolutely scared to death of thunder and lightening storms.  Ghost will cower under a table near where we are sitting or meow outside the bedroom door till it passes.  Poor baby must have been trapped outside in a storm or something! 
Ghost checking out what I am doing in the craft room and making sure I am doing it right!

Speaking of craft rooms and desks that is why I am here!  Welcome to What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!  I am here two weeks in a the world coming to an end?  OMG!  If you are wondering about WOYWW go check out Julia's blog Stamping Ground and she will fill you in on the details.  I am not showing my desk this week but the desk where I have been working the last few days.  I have gone back up to my daughters house and worked with her while she makes things for a baby shower she is giving Sunday I have been making birthday cards.
Here is a picture of Heather across the table.  I think she is looking for a pattern or something to continue her project.  The theme for the shower is honey bee's and flowers and she has been having a lot of fun research and making things for the party.  We are sitting at 3ft x 8ft tables and both our tables are covered with stuff.   I was making the cards from a kit from Close to My Heart and it is the first kit like it that I have ever used but I have really enjoyed making the cards cause the directions are awesome and everything is in the kit to make the project.  I have been in a little bit of a creative slump recently as far as making cards and scrap booking so when I had a party earlier this month I got a kit for each to make hoping it would get me back into it.  Heather sells CTMH and you should go to her site and check it out.  Lots of fun things to see. 

 Close ups of the cards.  The kit came with everything it took to make 5 of each card with a little left over.  I was once told never to send a card with a naked envelope so as you can see I decorated those also.
 The poor animals were just about going to rebel and every so often would come over to the tables begging to be taken back down stairs to their beds.  Looks like they have a rough time if the craft room and need saved doesn't.  It was after midnight when we called it a night so they were more then happy for me to go home!

Hope you have a great week and I hope to make it around to visit desks.  If you visit me I promise to come visit you...just leave a comment!

  2. Ghost is the perfect name for your cat! It seems no matter how small or big our workspaces are, we fill them to the max! Have a great week. Helen #5

  3. Sometimes it's nice to take the pressure off and have somebody else come up with the ideas. Stress free crafting.
