WOYWW #141 - OMG I am getting Organised!!!

Help!!! I hardly recognise my "craftyoom"... It is getting sorted, ready for being sorted, and it is nearly half way!!! I can't believe it... What do YOU think?? If you want to sneak a peek at other desks, more worthy than this, just pop on over to our dear Mistress of the Desks, Julia, to snoop at many from all around the world... Meanwhile here is mine...

Can you recognise it then?? Even I have to look twice!! The drawers now on the desk hold punches, below and acrylic blocks at the top. My wireless comes with me every day from my bedroom, so I can listen to 5Live... The drawers to the right, next to my printer, now house my -

distress ink pads and blending tools. Each pad has it's own block, named, and set in an empty Ferrero Rocher box, as you can see in the bottom drawer. I have reds, oranges and pinks on top. Next come the browns, then the blues and greens. At the bottom are the purples and black, plus the archival and embossing pads. It works well, as I can easily lift out which drawer(s) I need... good eh??

So what am I making on my newly emptied and tidied desk - which is really much bigger than I remembered!!?? Well, I have been doing a card for the fragrant Freddie, for Valentine's... I cut strips of Kanban cream and black, and laid them diagonally across the cardstock.

 A closer view of the strips and papers. Yummyness!!

Here is the finished panel, with the addition of ribbons.

 I got carried away and forgot to take piccies of the next stages!! Mounted the panel on black and then a red crease card 8"x8"...

This is the central section. The hearts are triple embossed in red/black and red/gold, and decorated with corner peeloffs... The curled back pieces are parchment, cut and twirled, then stuck down so they look as if they are peeled back to reveal the hearts...

So here is the full view, set against yet another page of that WONDROUS Tattered Time pad from DCWV... I love that set of papers and can't wait to start my Laura Denison project, to make a mini album... I have the kit all set to go...

This final view shows the depth of the rolling on the parchment... I used this technique once before when I made a card for myself to express myself about my Taiji and getting my black jacket... Oh that seems so many eons ago. It's actually just gone 4 years on February 7th!!!

However, my Taiji is still inside me - it's what makes me strong... that made me able to take in my mother and all those attendent problems... better week again so far - we even took her to see the horses on Sunday, and she fed the pony treats from her wheelchair in the stable!! Great stuff...

So that's it guys... I got round a few more of you again last week, and I am aiming for many more this time, so thanks for dropping by and leaving your lovely comments, I really appreciate and need every one!!
Love and Light
