WOYWW #8 (97)

Yes - 3 weeks in a row! Welcome to another edition of What's On Your Work desk Wednesday! Where we get to be a little voyeuristic and peek into someone else's creative haven. Want to know more? Check out the Queen of Sharing - Julia Dunnit - and join in the fun!

I've been really busy, but wanted to make sure to get my post up on time. Prepping for my upcoming classes, helping the kids finish science projects, history projects, end of the year stuff...busy.

But not too busy to want to share my finished postcards and even a couple I've received! So, to start off here's my work desk...

If you've seen some of the older photos you'll notice that I've done a little rearranging. That blue shelf was made for me by The Big Guy when he built my punch shelves with the kids (thought I had posted a picture...guess not...maybe next WOYWW!) I've been wanting to move my Distress Inks and some things I use often to a place that was easily accessible and easy to put away. I'm really a bit of a piler/clear container kind of gal. Notice the glasses with the foam & felt? the one with my mini misters? the one with misc. ephemera? and what about my buttons? You get the idea...the other day I had been cleaning out one of my shrunks and found some French jelly jars...pulled those out and put them on a shelf. Will be filling those soon, too!

Pretty random stuff on the desk...needed to finish my planner pages for the next couple of months, so they are on the desktop, along with some IKEA votive holders (glass, of course! The IKEA in Denver is supposed to open this fall...woohoo! These ones are from Koln...)

I know some of you have been waiting to see the postcards. I have to finish processing my pictures, but here's one I received from Stephanie in New York.

She says, " ...This postcard began as a photo, which I took of the Empire State Building. I was driving home from work and was stuck in traffic on 34th St. near Macy's..."

Love that this postcard came with a story! Thanks, Stephanie A.

My second postcard has made quite the trip...all the way from the Netherlands! Isn't she pretty? This one is from Deezy. You can find her HERE.  She's busy!

I couldn't believe that the postcard had come with the ribbon on the front. Wondered how that went at the post office...

I did find out...when I went to mail my cards I learned a few things about mailing stuff. When I designed my cards, I was worried that they wouldn't mail it without an envelope if they were too thick or heavy. (What would be the point of that? I wanted my postcards to weather the process and look traveled!) Well, if it weighs too much or is too thick you are not required to put it in an envelope, but they will charge you as if it were an unusual sized letter. Most of my postcards cost a little over a dollar to send.

While I would love to show how I finished up my postcards it's almost 0100 here. That will have to wait for another post.

Thanks for stopping by!
