WOYWW 376--I Love Crafting

Hello and happy Wednesday! How are you? I hope your week is going super duper great. Sometimes our desks can tell the whole story, so why not visit all the deskers right here: What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday.

My desk is telling a story of how I'm drinking coffee...of course...and working on making some cute little cards. I found a huge stack of little white envelopes in my stash. I thought...hmmm...why not make cards to fit these envelopes and sell them in my friend's store? (I know, that's a little backwards) So I'm stamping out the sentiments I want, choosing the cute patterned paper, and getting busy with it. I love this tiny little paper cutter I have from We R Memory Keepers--it's perfect to trim out my little stampings.
Okay...I'm a messy crafter sometimes, but there's no avoiding it! Plus, I'm having a great time, cutting, crafting, stamping, making and of course watching YouTube and Netflix. I just finished the entire first season of Stranger Things...oh my goodness. I'm in love with that show. I'll say no more, because I fear any comment will give something away! All I can say is, please hurry up and make season 2!
Darling daughter just got back from Harry Potter World at Universal Studios and bought me this adorable I Love Lucy has a travel lid she knows I do love Lucy! Of course I also love Harry Potter, but DD REALLY LOVES Harry Potter, and she cried with happiness her first day on park. She picked out her wand, drank butter beer, rode the rides, saw Hedwig, and enjoyed the HPW restaurants for breakfast each day.

So now, it's a happy magical desker day too as I muggle through my cardmaking. See you soon.

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch


  1. Afternoon Sandy. My word, you are one busy lady there this week! Great use of those envelopes - they would only stay stuck in a drawer, filling up valuable space, now wouldn't they?!
    Sorry - total ignoramus re Harry Potter - you mean to say there is a HARRY POTTER WORLD?!!! Oh my!
    Take care. God bless.

  2. Hi Sandy, great idea with the envelopes. I have some similar, I think that I may have to try this. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #8. xxx

  3. Sandy good luck with your card sales! I need to get busy on my Christmas Cards! I love your desk and my girls and I love I love Lucy as well! Watch the oldies for sure! And.....We are HUGE Harry Potter fans, so I am quite envious of your daughter! Muggle through the rest of the week! :) Blessings Felicia #42

  4. Oh what a good idea - I have a box of odd sized envelopes that I just can't throw out as it's too wasteful - it seems obvious now you've said it! I love 'I love Lucy' too, and I love that mug - aren't you lucky having such a lovely daughter!
    Have a great week,

  5. It's not backward...I can make a whole bag which started out as just a small scrap. I'll spend ages finding all the perfect complementary patterns and colours to go with it. You're in good company!
    How fabulous that your daughter is such an HP geek, I love it πŸ˜ƒπŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

  8. "Stranger Things" - must investigate.
    I would love to go to Harry Potter World - I know nothing about it but am sure I saw a picture of the street where the shops wee - it would be awesome to walk along there.
