WOYWW 161

HAPPY 4TH JULY to the American Desks.
Messy desk day again!!
How did my desk evolve into this mess in 2+ days? This is my desk/tables set up for making Christmas cards for Stockings for Soldiers Project
which I am the coordinator of the card section


This side of the desk is the stamping side, under the large transparent mat I have tissue paper etc being flattened out. Each bin are cards at different stages of finishing
Then I move to this side and finish off with painting, colouring or adhereing. The white container h oldds cards I have received so far 515 in all so far to make the 3000 requirements in 3 months. The black box holds cut up cardstock ready to be used
This is the breaktime side, when I get tired of making cards I crochet or read and have dinner here
Then within an hour this is the result of the fruits of labour..opps the MnM jar is empty...
I didn't eat it-hubby did!!!

For the food lovers, baked potato, sausages and salad 
(hmm I must put more colour in my salads lol

Hey Bridget!

You are quite orderly in your method of cardmaking! I made a card (it's been so long I was just a bit lost) last night so my desk is a big ol' mess, running off onto the floor.

That's great that you are leading the charge for the cards for troops - how nice of you!

The food looks mighty tasty - and there's nice color in your salad!

Happy WOYWW
Hugs,

Sunshine Girl said...

I think your desk looks very tidy! I like the way you store your rolls of twine on a kitchen roll holder - might try that myself as mine are shoved in a bag and unravel everytime I go to use them! Good luck with the mammoth card making tasks, have a fabulous week and thanks for sharing. Sunshine Girl - No. 58

Julia Dunnit said...

That's a huge undertaking Bridget..I love the organisation you're putting into it, lucky you've got a 3 sided desk huh! You've made me hungry now, have to go get some brekkie.

scrappystickyinkymess said...

I am having, as you saw, a bit of a cardmaking marathon myself - Maybe I should do similar and make cards for a project like this. Trouble is I just HATE making Christmas cards :) Your salad looks like MY salad - toamtos and red onion is all it needs.

KatzElbows said...

That's not a messy desk, that's a desk with lots on it, but it's all really well organised. When I grow up I want to be just like you. Good luck with your project. I'm glad you don't have to make 3,000 cards all on your own.

cheers, rachel #53

Hi Bridget, I always enjoy visiting your desk because it's always so interesting and productive, and there's always FOOD!! I haven't had any lunch yet and my mouth is watering!!

You've got a regular card factory production line going on there! I'm amazed at how productive you are, and what a blessing it must be for the soldiers to receive the cards. Well done you!

Thanks for your lovely comment! You will be pleased to hear that your ATC is now on its way, and I hope you enjoy it!

Happy WOYWW,
