Hello to All!
It's Wednesday, or close to it, which means it's time for the weekly desk hop conducted by the fabtastic Julia Dunnit at What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday (WOYWW). I've been having a crafty good time this week which is a parent on my desk. I hope you get a chance to join in the fun!
For those of you who only pop in on Wednesdays, you should know that I've started to get serious about using my virginal stamps and paper and dies and so forth and so as not to have to say that on every post, especially the word "virginal" since I don't want pervs visiting this space, I've coined a term for it: NBUS which means "never-before-used-schtuff." Some of my crafty friends have picked up the gaunt let (poor dear, so thin), so you may see that acrononymim on other blogs. Feel free to use the term and use up your NBUS!
Here's my desk:
It's not an antique. It's some cheesy foe fone that one of the twinks found at a yard sale. The wire cradle was broken so Papa brought it home to sodder it. (I'm sorry, I know it's spelled solder, but seriously, it shouldn't be.) The twinks are coming over on Saturday for a sleep-over and Henry will want his phone back, so I had to grab this picture of it with this NBUS (stamp) I knew I had lurking about.
I mean, what are the chances? Is that cool or what? I wish I knew who the manufacturer of the stamp was, but I don't because the set was cut apart before I knew I should be making note of manufacturerers for you guys. And when I say, "what are the chances," I mean what are the chances that I remembered that I had this tiny little NBUS in my Playhouse at the same time I had the phone in my possession and not two days after the phone had gone back home to Henry. You see what I'm saying? It's a miracle.
Naturally, I couldn't just take that picture and not make a card! So I made this:
I not only used NBUS, I actually CASEd an inspiration card that is pinned on my Pinterest board. THAT is a first! The inspiration card comes form the uber-amazing-CASly-creative hands of Laurie Willison of Soapbox Creations:
I'm also entering my card in this week's ColourQ challenge. Here are the delicious colours:
And glory beans, I cleaned my windows and about darn time.
Thank you all for hopping by for a visit! As always, please leave me a comment so I know you came by; I will return the flavor!
[For WOYWWers: On previous posts, I've mentioned that I'm compiling data regarding printers and I will share the results sometime next week. If you are interested in the results, please participate by letting me know in your comment what brand/model you use, and whether you like it or don't like it. Thank you so much! Mwah!!]
