What's on your Workdesk? (Wednesday #83) The first for 2011!

Lots to see on my desk today Peeps! My new stamps (shhh don't tell my hubby!) for a start. Lucky he doesn't read my blog much...just checks how many hits I've had! LOL! Anyway, can you see it? My new pink baby! My ATG gun arrived, not in time for Christmas but it did arrive...yesterday! I've even had a go and it was super easy to load up the tape. I love it!
To the left you can see some new Stampin' Up punches and stamp sets that I mounted yesterday and to the right some Washi tape that just arrived with my stamps from The Greeting Farm.

On my scor-pal I have my first ever design team piece for the Anyone for Anya challenge blog. You still have time to enter your February Birthday calendar page and you can win a lovely Magnolia stamp. If you want some details on my calendar page click *here*

I also have my first bow that I made with my Bow Easy. I have had the Bow Easy for months and didn't know what to do. After watching a video tutorial on it I discovered how simple it was. Miss 5 has already lined up some toys that NEED bows after watching the 'magic' happen!

For anyone who is interested on the surgery I did last week on Dorothy the Dinosaur (see this post if you are confused) all went well and Miss 5 even commented that, 'She looks like new' (oh to see through the eyes of a 5 year old) and 'You're amazing Mum!' (This part is so true! LOL!)
Sorry for the long post today...I'm feeling a bit chatty obviously! Anyway, thanks for looking and if you feel like it, please leave a comment. I love to read them! I managed to visit everyone's desk last week, it certainly helped that there were less than usual! If you want to join in with the fun, link your desk to Julia's blog over at the Stamping Ground.

Don't forget to check out the Anyone for Anya Challenge blog...there's a new challenge every Sunday and great prizes up for grabs!

Thanks for looking...have a great day!

Delighted to hear that Dorothy's surgery went well. I think that one of those pink ATGs is eventually going to happen here; they seem to be essential. Glad Miss 5 is lining up even more crafty jobs for you...

Totally fun goodies on your desk. Thanks for sharing

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Children really ARE the best at making you feel like you have done a super thing. I'm glad the surgery went well, even if it's a patch job. And it sounds like you made someone VERY happy.

Those cards are super with the little bows on them. I was expecting big monster package bows (grin). Happy WOYWW from # 16.

Chelle said...

What great goodies. My Pink ATG is still in the box. I still have to place an order with the Greeting farm. #95

Linby said...

I think I may be stamping my feet soon as I see you are the second person with a pink ATG - so much cooler than yellow!
Love your desk and all your TGF stamps.

Tertia said...

You have so much to look at, wish I was actually there, because I am a toucht feely kind of girl. Oh, for an ATG gun, but they are not available in South Africa and with import taxes not worth bringing in. Sigh, maybe one day!

sandra de said...

Bow easy, AT, woyww and TGF stamps I don't think any DH would be able to understand what is happening on our blogs. I am very envious of your pink ATG which I never knew existed until I started this weekly snooping.Sandra #66
