Let's Chat

Ingredients:  My Mind's Eye Lime Aid Fly a Kite Paper; PTI Grunge Me and Birthday Bash Sentiments

Ladies...before I get to my card today, let's chat.  How many of you are clean desk/work area freaks?  The older I get, I find that I can't start working unless my desk/work area is clean.  I simply can't.  And...I think it is getting worse.  At work, I have to have a clean desk before I can dig into a project.  Same at home when it comes to creating cards.  I must have a clean work area.  Anyone else in the same boat?  What's your favorite organizational tip for your craft room?  I'm about to purge and reorganize...I can feel the need to do this coming.  Too many things I can't find lately or things I know I won't use because I've been hitting Archiver's and on-line shops a little too often.  I'd love to hear your feedback.

Now...onto my card above.  This was for my dear friend, Sandy.  We're going to catch up tomorrow for lunch and a pedicure.  I sent this card to her earlier in the week so I think she's received it by now!  I'm entering it for the current Wee Memories Challenge.

  1. I love how that patterned paper represents a tiered cake and the birdies some candles, clever! If that wasn't your intention, I'm really sorry, but I think it is a FANTASTIC idea! And I don't think we can chat, my desk is a complete mess. Although I'd love to craft in a clean area, I find myself pushing things aside just so I can get to a flat surface. I probably have lost way more than I should. Time to change, right?

  2. I am loving the colours on your cards this week :) You have just the sweetest images :) Are you cleaning a space for me in your studio? ;) I have been getting bogged down with product too...not enough time to use it all. I blame it all on the paper companies!! I like a clean work desk area, with a clean SU grid paper...can't wait for the new studio, then I can really clean out the old stuff. However, I have tons of piles on the floor right now!! uhg! sweet dreams and have a great weekend!! Only 4 more work days!!

  3. SWEET and lovely CAS card for the Wee Memories challenge! Love the placements of paper strips and birdies...just delightful! Now we all have our own habits, so if you like a clean desk, that is perfectly fine! It's better than the other way around. I'm sort of in between. I can't function if it's too messy, but then when I create, I don't care the mess so much :)

  4. I like the simple, yet colorful design of this card (and I love the polka dot strip).
    I am working on my messy craft table. My husband just shakes his head and wonders how I can find anything. I read this post yesterday it motivated me to clean up a bit. Since then I have organized by inks by color into labeled drawers (man, I never knew I had that much ink!). Thanks!
