What's On Your Workdesk 179 and I did it!

Well, here it is.  I'm a day (or 2 late), but I'm here.  I was putting together a card this morning and I had to giggle while applying the glue.  Most of the gals that I crop with use this "punch glue" and at any time during a class or a crop you can here the tapping of the glue applicator against the paper.  I noticed one week, that we all have our little pattern that we like to use.  Mine is dots, some use swirls, and wiggles, but I noticed that we each do the same thing over and over.  So, if you use glue, are you a creature of habit?  So this is the desk and that's my pattern!  Check out Julia's blog hereAnd while you're at it....share what your work space looks like.  We'd love to see what you've been up to. 

This is what I've glued:

I recently discovered Northwoods Rubber Stamps.  If you haven't seen them, they are WONERFUL!  I colored this one with Spectrum Noir pens, which by the way I've been working on becoming accredited and guess what....I now am!  Thanks to Jennie and her gentle criticizm and some wonderful videos.  So this is the first one I've done alone and though far from perfect, it's better than a few weeks back.  It's a snippet card and I've used lots of pieces and parts that I had laying around.  So, I'm going to post this on Di's blog, Pixie's Crafty Workshop.  If you've not played with all of us, now's a great time to start.  A great way to use pieces and parts.  So check it out Di's blog here.   

I guess I should close for now.  We're going to a new restaurant that opened a few weeks back.  I don't think sweatsuit is proper atire.  I'd best get ready....

Fun days ahead, field trip tomorrow, play day on Sunday and Monday....I probably should do some housework at some time.  (or not!)

I want to thank everyone who follows me on this journey of joy....please know I do visit your blog pages, though I don't always leave comments.  I love seeing what everyone is doing.  I find it difficult to leave comments when I'm on my Ipad, sitting in a chair with my dog and Baxter gets down right grumpy if I move him over so I can type.  But I do enjoy reading about everything you've been up to!

Have a most wonerful week,


  1. I dont really like glue, I dont have the patience to wait for it to dry, the only glue I like is the hot glue gun

  3. Made me laugh, if only everyone would change from sweatsuits before a restaurant dinner!!! I don't use a lot of wet glue..too impatient , but when I do, perhaps the impatience is obvious...I squeeze a blob and then spread it all about. Messily. Well done with your colouring, good for you for staying with it, the card is fab.

  4. Gorgeous card there Mary. Love postboxes as you may gather from my 31 October post!
    Lovely image and I will have to look out for this make!

  5. I'm a little tiny blob kinda gluer - I find it's much easier to control that way. Love your snippet card - those little birds sitting on top of the mail boxes are cute. A late WOYWWer so I hope you've had a great weekend. Elizabeth x #75
