Woohoo I made it back again this week :) a wee bit late but still I am here. Not so clean desk this week. I printed out these journalling tags from Creativity Prompt. Avital is gracious enough to share journalling tags for your personal use only.
The second photo is a pillow that I need to finish sewing and my swap project for next month's stamp club meeting. I picked Easter out of the jar lol And in accordance with Virginia's challenge of altering the alterables we have haha I decided to use the little cardboard gifty box that I have had for so many years, I can't even remember lol
Above you can see a page from inside my Quotes notebook. I just write down the ones that I think I will use in my scrapbooking, art journalling or even cardmaking :)
Now I have been remiss in answering questions left in the comments :( So, here goes :)
From March 31 WOYWW
   Paula Gale-- I don't have to hide my stash from the "other half" as there isn't one. Just me and the kiddos at home.
   Paula Gale and Cher- my kiddos are not into artsy stuff like me, so I was not sure if daughter would like the art piece I made her or not.
   Brenda (Butlersabroad)- the room I took over is supposed to be the dining room. Although for the life of me I can't figure out why anyone would want carpet in here haha So I took it over for my crafts.
From May 5 WOYWW
  Liverpool Lou (Anne)- I received the star hanging thing from one of the very talented ladies in the Altered_stArt yahoo group I am in. :)
And also a big thank you for all the cudos on my art journal pages, I am still learning and it is just so much fun for me. Kinda lets me be a kid again to just go with the flow :)  Ya'll did have me wondering what a cotton reel was though :) Then I looked at the picture and realized it was my spools of thread :)
It will probably take me all week to get through the list of desks, I noticed it has grown considerably :)
Make sure you hop on over to Miss Julia's blog to check out the rest of the desks. I can't say it will take you just a little while, it will take you a LONG while but it is just so much fun.
Hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week :)
Till next week :)

Glad to here that you've taken up the challenge of using all those items up that we've promised to use/alter etc in our crafting life - I'm still fighting with the nut tins but I will not be defeated LOL! Loving those tags that you've got on your desk! Made me giggle thinking of you trying to fathom us out on the cotton reel comment! Hope you're having a fabulous day! Hugs

Kerry, you even cut out in tidy piles! Welcome back!! Love that you have so much going on - and imagine how good it will feel to have used up something that's been waiting...I should know, today I used ONE sheet of 12" paper that I know I've had for at least 5 years! Your cursive handwriting is so lovely - I hope you journal by hand on your pages??
