Happy New Year and What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday 135

Another year has come and gone with its share of ups and downs.  All in all, I'm very blessed and I want to work very hard at keeping that in the forefront in 2012!  Wish me luck!

What's on my workdesk?  A bunch of assorted stuff!

I have some new gadgets and toys after dragging my husband with me to an Archiver's store in Katy.  Good thing that place isn't closer to where I live.  Sheesh!  I also went to Michaels to spend the gift certificate my oldest daughter got me for Christmas (Thank you, Erica!).

I now have a Copic colorless blender, clear, silver and gold Spica pens, and a set of Bic Mark It permanent markers.  I've been intrigued by Copics, but didn't know really where to start in purchasing them.  Then I saw a video on Stamp TV showing how to get started with alcohol markers on a budget.  I haven't tried it yet, but since I've never outgrown coloring from my childhood, I bet I like it!

After my quasi-success with Top Note Die mini albums for Christmas presents, I'm now trying my hand at a paper bag mini.  This is as far as I've gotten so far.

See those little blue bins in the background?  I picked those up in the Target dollar bin one day.  Right now one is holding scraps, one is holding small pre-stamped pieces looking for a home, and the other is holding my most-used ink pads so they're right at my fingertips.

So, what's on YOUR workdesk???  Check out all the other amazing desks by going to Stamping Ground.

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!

  3. Well Sheri, I like the little blue bins..but OMGee, they are little, my scraps box looks like a trunk compared to that! You clearly work tidy! Am fascinated by your paper bag book, please don't forget to keep showing it as it progresses! I have to say that I have Copics, almost never use them and rarely colour in these me will ya?

  4. Hello Sheri love your workspace it looks light and area. Also like the blue tins. I have promarkers and I do love colouring in but need to practise a bit moree. have a Happy 2012.

  6. I have good luck with Target dollar spot, too! I bought a wire mesh bin to hold stickers and over this past weekend bought a painted oval "bucket" (for lack of a better word) to store stamps in, as the one I was using was getting too full.
