Workdesk Wednesday-All Work, No Play

Today is Workdesk Wednesday, the biggest snoopiest blog hop around.  This is my desk. It is tidied up again because I lost an important thing on it this past Monday.  Instead of just shuffling things around I picked up. In the end I found half of the important thing I lost, which is better than none of it.
I have lots of projects going on and none of them are crafty--meaning they are all school or work related--so I probably won't get to visit many of you. I will make a special effort to visit those who comment here though because you were nice enough to stop by and leave a message.

I've been to some Stampin' Up workshops lately and here are a couple of the cards I've made recently. The first one is a sweet and simple Halloween card. 
 The second one is a really cool fold card.  It folds flat with the white piece up front. I didn't think to take a photo of it shut so you could see.  When it is open the white piece really pops out from the rest of your card. I like the different patterns of paper on this card as well as the design. The jar is stamped on acetate to give it more of a glass look. Fun stuff!
I'd best be heading off to tackle the tasks I have today.  Have a great visit around the desks of the world and give my regards to everyone.

The Fine Print: All the card stuffs by Stampin' Up. Bat card made with pieces from Ghoulish Googlies Kit and Googly Ghouls stamps.  Cool folded card made with stamps from the Perfectly Preserved kit, papers from Orchard Harvest and a Labels Framelet.

You're doing that freaky tidy thing again - it's scary, but I'll forgive you as you nearly found whatever it was. Now you need to mess it up again, quick! Both great cards hun, love that cute little bat! xxx

That reminds me of the joke @what's worse than finding a maggot in your apple?'...Finding half a maggot instead!! Hopefully the important item wasn't spoiled by being in half!

Those SU cards are adorable! I used to be in a SU "club"--one of my best friends is a demonstrator--and it was great because even if I hadn't had time to make anything for a while, I could count on some art therapy at her house!!

School and work, they get in the way sometimes . . . ;)

Happy WOYWW to you!

That is a decidedly tidy desk you have there! What a shame about only finding half of the really important thing...hope that doesn't completely ruin it. I'm glad you've had some time for crafting, even with all that yucky schoolwork you have to do. :) Would love to see more details, when you have time of course, on the folded card...it looks like fun to make! :)
Hugs, Deeyll #77

100% of something is way better than 100% of nothing, and if that 100% of something is actually 50% of the real thing, then hey, it's all good!!!
Im learning that tidy with you indicates a manic state at work. I hope it calms.

I am a glass half full kind of girl ... so well done for finding something. Don't stress about visiting when your busy woyww friends understand. Gorgeous cards and do post a closed pic it really does look stunning.
