Wubba Wubba--It's WOYWW!

Announcer's Voice: It is Workdesk Wednesday!
And the crowd goes wild.

I'm glad someone is excited because there ain't much happening on my desk.  It looks about the same as last time with a bit more thrown on for good measure.
That's because I truly haven't crafted much lately.  I did organize my 8-foot stack of paper and turned it into two 4-foot stacks.  I have this theory that it will be easier to retrieve things from the lower bins this way.  And yeah.... they aren't really 4-foot high but I have the paper to make them 4-feet high.  That's a pile of magazines you see in the upper right hand corner.  There's another project for someday.
Here's a photo of my office, the place I spend most of my waking hours (but only because the boss gets miffed if I sleep on the job).  I'm due to get a new cabinet that locks soon so I had to empty out the old one.  Let me say, this file systems sucks.  I can't find anything, it hurts my knees to crawl around on the floor, and the metal bits on the hanging files are all tangled together.  My office is really narrow in case you are wondering why things are spread along a line.
I did do some crafting. I went to a Stampin' Up workshop last night and made some great cards. It got me in the mood to do some stamping once I free myself from servitude (the job, ya'know).  Plus I got to peek at the new SU catalog coming into play as of June 1st.  There are some fun new stamp sets coming.

The Fine Print: All the everythings on the cards most likely by Stampin' Up.  The pear set is a hostess set and it is to die for (or to eBay for). It has the square lattice embossing folder on it.  The butterfly card has one of those double mounted stamps on it (the grass), the butterflies are from one of those cut and emboss things, and the frames are the framelets. Fun stuff.

If I got down on the floor I doubt I would get up again in a hurry, must be great to have 'young' knees. Love your pear card, the stamp is a definitely a stunner.

Beautiful card Judy, and waaaaaay too much paper/card for your good health :)

Laughed about the Spanish Cats photo book - look again at mine. I bet they wouldn't have caught a fisherman's cigarette end in shot :)

I only noticed when I got home and don't have fancy cropping stuff for photos - or to be truthful I was just too dog tired!

Very cute cards, am loving the grass stamp? I want that one! lol As for your question, no those weren't real watermelon seeds....but that would have been an excellent idea! I used some black 3 dimensional paint for them. I hope you have a wonderful day, waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

I now have this image of a Very Pregnant Mum with millions of kids at her feet!! Do you need an eye test?? Lol :) My Mum would have laughed her socks off at that!
Nice butterflies btw - but your gold card on the previous page is the best :)

I really like the pear card can see it opens a bit different like that funky background. You will have to drop by and see my smiley piece of wood on my desk. I put it there after your smiley bacon and eggs the other day. Sandy :) #92

You can't go wrong with that pear hostess set, I've made some really nice cards with it. You did beautiful work. Hope your office gets put back together so you don't have to crawl around anymore! Barb #170

great cards and I love the organization of all that paper. Have a great week. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. Vickie #28

Love the pear stamp (of course it would be a hostess gift). I think your new system for papers will help unfortunately if I put things in boxes (even clear ones) I don't seem to be able to find anything!! We all need a new filing system. I am thinking of a conveyor belt that slowly moves past my desk with all my stash on a continuous loop. But then I am so scatty I would probably just sit mesmerised by the stuff going past me. Have a lovely week.

Neet said...

I may have this wrong but I imagine you to be reasonably tall - visions of your filing on the floor leaves me agog!
Love the pear card and I have those butterflies - gorgeous!
Hugs, Neet #25 xx

Caatje said...

Ah yes, organizing the stash is a continuous effort isn't it? I love the card with the little butterflies!

kassa said...

Hey there, will having 2x4ft piles of paper stacks stop a crafter purchasing more [can't live/breath without me delicious papers] Me thinks not - cause it wouldn't stop me! TeeHee!
I'mliking the pear card very much, lovely colours.

Oh Judy, forgot to say YES Leo does suit his black mask as he is always rooting around for trouble - double trouble!!

CraftygasheadZo said...

Lovely cards, can see why sorting your piles helps, but how do you get the bottom one! Take care & enjoy WOYWW, hope your Thursday is a lovely one. Zo xx 80

Shoshi said...

Oh Judy, love the cards, especially the butterfly one! I love things with a bit of dimension, and the grass and the flying butterflies are full of movement, all set off by the beautiful blue frame. Just gorgeous!

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. We've been quite busy recently and I've not been too well, and the weather is FAR too hot for me!! We had a lovely day out today, though, to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and visited the museum which has just opened again after an extensive refit! It's all go...

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #133
