My New Desk Set!!!

A few days ago, I showed you my nightmare of a system for designing cards... notes, scribbled pretty much everywhere - junk mail, envies, old coupons, but, mostly junk mail and legal pads. So, I decided that I would come up with a fun little container of some sort to keep index cards in and when the moment hit, I'd grab an index card and sketch out my card. Well, with the help of some dp, embellishments and duo glue, I did it! This little wooden basket is now my inspiration station! Because my stamp room is kind of low key design-wise, I decided not to go too over the top with embellishments, I just kind of kept it simple. I also had enough paper left over to make a cute little desk calendar! It is not as cute as Theresa's (Click Here to see hers) but, I like it none the less!

I also like the fact that I had enough paper to do each side in a different style! Even though the back is plain, I just LOVE the paper!

Not much shaking in my craft room today! My hubby just came home last night from a business trip -- so we are off to go trail walking or something fun like that! It's so nice to live near the river & woods!

Happy Sunday!

p.s. Did anyone else go to the Gina K. Preview Party last night? I did for a bit but I must be too A.D.D! I couldn't keep up!! I knew I was in trouble when I showed up late and there were already 20 pages of posts!!! :-) Great new stamps though! Can't wait to play!!! My fave is actually the Stamps For A Cause Set - that will be in my stamp room for sure. It's so nice to know that if you buy this set, you can feel good about it because you are, at the same time, helping a terrific cause!
