What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #3

I'm getting ready to scrapbook! Yesterday I got a batch of printed photos and am in the process of sorting them so that I can spend this afternoon creating layouts. While I did a lot of scrapping last year, much of it was for custom scrapbook-for-hire projects, and I'm looking forward to being much more ACTIVE in recording our stories and memories over the next several weeks. Here's a look at my craft table.


On the left of the desk, you can see the new Carl paper cutter Robbie gave me for Christmas. All those photos cover FUN memories from August through November of last year, and those papers on the right are layout INSPIRATION from yesterday's post on the Get It Scrapped blog.

Now, I need to grab my memorabilia bin and add in the bits & pieces I've saved to go with some of these photos, then I'm all set to start gluing pretty pieces of paper together.

Are you doing any creating today? Be sure to head over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see what's on other workdesks around the world this week!

Hi Melissa. It's Sunday and I intend to get creative all day. thanks for the scrapbooking link. I love how organized your work surface is. I want to get more scrapping done in 2017. Now that the studio is in somewhat order, I might just accomplish that. ;-) Creative Blessings! Kelly #41
