WOYWW

Hello!

Can't believe it's Wednesday already!  Time to get on your magic carpet and fly around the world peeking at craft desks!  If you're not sure what I'm talking about, head on over to Julia's blog to check it out and join in the fun! 

Thought I'd share a quick peak at my workdesk from my weekend!  Twice a year I go on a weekend retreat with 12 ladies - we pack up all our stash and craft our little hearts out for 3 days - it's awesome and such a special time with friends.   Clearly I was working on Christmas cards / tags.  Love that new Seasonal paper stash from Mr. Tim.... :)

(yes.... I'm a smoker..... don't hate me.....)
And here's one of my projects from the weekend - used Wendy Vecchi's ART PARTS and some wooden snowflakes.  My friend Matty gave me the snowflakes and challenged me to make something with them - VOILA!!  Hope you enjoy!

pearl paint in background, tissue tape covered in alcohol ink on frame, painted wood snowflakes with pearl/bling accents, chandelier tear drops, snaps on scalloped trim.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,

~ ellen. xx

Like the colours and the concept you came up from 2 snowflakes - wow! What do you do with the tags - stick them onto cards, treat them as cards? Would get more into them if I could 'use' them, for sure!

Susan said...

I am so late it is nearly Wednesday again! Your desk is so neat. Love your work too! Susan xxox #17

Really love that tidy desk and look at that stack of ink pads! Sorry I'm so late getting here. You would think since I had most of my obligations out of the way, I would have freed up a bit more computer time. Unfortunately, what happened was, I was so far behind, I became overwhelmed. Will try to do better this week.
