Pi Day! And WOYWW #17,349

Happy Pi Day for all you closet (and not so closet) geeks out there. 3.14, always a good day in my eye being quite the fan of pie.

And happy What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday to you too! I might be a little off on the numbering, but I'm sure I'm close. WOYWW is all about snooping around at various crafty people's desks. If you're feeling a bit nosy, go check it out at Julia's blog The Stamping Ground.
This is my parent's table in New Mexico, also known as my desk for the time being. I confess to taking this picture Tuesday evening since folks will be descending on the place soon since my father's memorial is today.  You can see a small collection of Copic markers, my box of embellishments, the spring fling card pack, random papers, stamps, punches, the images from a magazine, and tweezers. I was using those to try to remove thorns from my hand but was unsuccessful.
Here is the rest of my Copic collection and my travel case of cardstocks and papers.  Here is one of the projects I made:
The Fine Print: Penny Black image magazine freebie, love stamp by Penny Black, border punch by EK Sucess, 1" circle punch by Stampin' Up, papers by DCWV, flower ribbon by Simplicity.

OK, this may sound weird, and I have never tried it, but some girls from work swear by it. Soak your hand in milk ( where the thorns are ? ) and supposingly in draws them out. I dunno if it works, but always worth a try. waving hi from the warm and sunny hills of North Carolina :)

Lovely card, very pretty! I always find it hard to know what bits to pack and what I can leave behind when taking a few bits away with me! x

Julia Dunnit said...

Well, for a travelled selection, you're looking pretty dug in and producing gorgeous stuff. Bit of therapy in times of crisis, huh. I truly hope that your father's Memorial has helped with your precious memories.

Pi day - like that but it doesn't work in the UK where we write the date as 14.3.12.
Hope your father's memorial went well and brought back many happy memories.

Hope everyone remembered the bad times and good, the jokes, stories of when your dad got up to no good etc - those are the best memorials. Hope it went well and helped....
Thorns?? What were you doing? Julia tells me off for washing up and gardening without gloves ALL THE TIME, but I shan't do that to you, no sirree. I've heard that putting soap on them draws the little blighters out, worth a try :)
Hugs, LLJ #26 xx

Princess Judy,

I hope your dad's memorial was filled with love and fond memories. Bless you and your family.

The traveling desk is a good idea. I should have a little set up like that when I go on trips. I love your cute little kittie card. Love the bouquet.

Hugs,
Kay
Not participating but wanted to stop in and say hi.

Just shows we crafters are versatile... produce great cards anywhere and at such a time as this . I hope the memorial went well and remember the happy times.

Well, pies are round so it is perfectly acceptable to eat actual pies on Pi day, math geek or not.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Thanks for stopping by and for the kind blessings. The secret to the traveling desk is my rolly cart. It was a much appreciated Christmas gift.

VonnyK said...

Hope your dads memorial went well. Love your travelling craft desk and such a gorgeous card on the run. My husband would love your pie reference, he is a maths teacher but we use the 14/3/12 here so it doesan't work.
Have a great week.

You are very organised being able to travel and make stuff on the go, the card is lovely and I hope your Dad's memorial service went well. Hugs.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Although I am late getting here, I hope your Dad's memorial went well. Art is always good therapy. That card is nice, too. I am impressed that you got all that artsy stuff in a "GO" bag!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I forgot to mention. I like Pi, too. I used to carry it out to 30 decimals. People thought I was a REAL geek!!!

Catie Cuddles said...

Was struggling the pi reference until I read some of the comments and had to go back and check out what you meant. It's a good day on the 14th march for me as its my daughters birthday!
Anyway ... Lovely card. Thanks for sharing
Woyww163, Catherine x
