WOYWW 195

Once again it is Wednesday.  I'm even more behind than I was last week!  I need to finish up about 24 cards for OWH.  I have a goal of making one card for every day of the month to donate which means I need 28 cards.  I had 4 more, but I used them for an RAK gift.

Since it is Wednesday - that also means it is time to share my work desk and go to Julia's site - The Stamping Ground and see what others have on their desks today.

I got a new trimmer, but that is about the only thing that has changed on this portion of the desk.


And I've created some more cards, but nothing exciting going on over here either.

I will be doing some major blog hopping after work today.

Have a great day and be inspired.

  1. Hi April, You are going to be busy with 28 cards to do. Your new trimmer looks like the rolls royce of cutters, and that is a mega bag of googly eyes on your other desk all peeking out of the packet:)Hugs Mo x

  3. You have a very nice desk. In my vocabulary that would mean, you have a lot of pretty stuff that I could only wish for. :) Your desk looks like summer.
    Happy crafting

  4. Wow that's some goal! How do you like the new paper cutter? For paper it's great, nice straight edges but anything heavier, like chipboard, not so good. Happy WOYWW! Nan #1

    1. Thanks for the reply, April. Sounds like a very worthy cause. As they say here in Oz, 'Good on ya!'

  7. Hi April, thanks for visiting my blog yesterday, have to say I love your blog header, never seen one like that before....so much to look at.
    Your paper trimmer looks magnificent, what brand is it? although I shouldn't ask 'cause I've got three already!

    My owl mug worked fine, his eyes opened this morning with my first cuppa. The mini matchbox chest of drawers is being made for a swap (hopefully it will turn out ok)
    Cheers and happy woyww

  16. Your space is gorgeous--bits and bobs neatly in their places! Brilliant having your computer table right by your craft station, love it! I really like your blog! I also love how you are #151--because I'm usually way down on the list too, but I happened to wake up at 1:30 in the morning and thought I'd get up real quick and link up, so up a little higher on the list this time. But really, it doesn't matter, because often I will start from the last to do random visits if I have time that week. I work too--but crafts and art are my therapy! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #52

  19. I find I don't mind making Christmas cards when it's cold and there's snow on the ground, but come August and 100F weather and I really struggle!! I like you new trimmer, Fiskars make great products.

  22. Hey...your new trimmer looks great! How do I know it is great? Cuz I have one too!!!

    teehee Got mine for Xmas and love how straight it cuts...even the tiniest sliver slices so easily.

    That is wonderful that you are doing a card a day for each day of the month to donate. Those cards are so appreciated!

  25. Looks like you have been busy coloring and are about to trim up with your new snazzy trimmer. Dont know what to call pipins new friend yet and dont think that owl will stay on my desk, she will prob migrate off to another room to peek out at someone.. Pipin is really heavy and holds things down to dry for me so very handy little owl.. Thanks for visiting my blog..

    1. The trimmer is a Fiskars Procision trimmer. It cuts the paper straight every time. I guess because it's got those heavy duty bars. I do like it. And the blade is self sharpening. April

  27. Wow, that's quite the trimmer! :) I love the white cubbie you have in the corner there with the colorful baskets!! Hope you get the rest of your cards finished!

  31. Awesome job on OWH, April! How fun to get a new trimmer!! Thanks for coming by to visit me earlier! I've been busy on other things this week, but I'm finally getting a chance to do more WOYWWing desk-hopping. I hope you enjoy the rest of the week! Darnell #34

  32. Just doing my Monday morning catch up, I’m so behind this week.
    Your work room is looking as if you’ve been very productive April, even if you say there’s nothing much going on.
    It’s such a commitment to make one card a day but it’s a lovely way to build up a collection for charity. When I do the LillyBo cards I just slog at it and do as many as I can in one sitting.
    Thanks for stopping by this week
    Happy Crafting!

  34. Nothing is like a paper trimmer cutting straight! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your duel monitors. I work with 4 at work 2 each 27" and 2 each a bit smaller....Love it! I wish I had the space at home to do the same thing....some day!

  35. Your new paper trim looks great, isn't funny how you wonder how you did without it when you get a new one, even if it's similar to your old one!!!
    You have such a gorgeous, colourful space to work in.
    Thanks for visiting earlier, I am just managing to catch up after a hectic week.
    Happy WOYWW

  37. I gave up on my trimmers and got a big guillotine, so much fun and it cuts beautifully. I had a look at your newer posts and those cards are gorgeous. You have such a bright desk, I love it.
    Have a great day.
