I think the better question this week is what's not on my desk? It looks like I have pulled out a large chunk of my card making supplies and not gotten super far with what I am doing. There's a good reason for that, I haven't! One of my co-workers has requested a special card for her daughters birthday and I'm not sure what I am going to do. A couple of ideas are zooming around in my head (like the base for a box card you can see), but I don't know which I want to do. I know, first world problems!

Anyhow, here it is, in all it's glory.

To join in the fun, pop over and visit Julia and she'll have all the deets.
Thanks for stopping by.

Rocking Your World Friday--Week 16

This week has fairly flown by, as has the first quarter of the year. The more birthdays I celebrate, the quicker they seem to come round!

I'll start with my smiles for the week. Such an intent look on his face! I'm not sure what his Mommy was doing, but I'm not sure he was pleased about it LOL.

Some happy mail in the post this week. A lovely postcard from Lisca in Spain. It was totally unexpected and not necessary, but definitely appreciated, so thank you Lisca for adding to my smiles this week.

And this, just because it made me giggle.

Now, onto the positives for the week.

The little Gorgeous had her second swimming lesson and had a grand time. And after swimming, Nana had a grand time as she convinced everyone that we needed to go out for an all day breakfast. Yum.

According to my son, the little Handsome has gained over 3 lbs in just four weeks.

Still loving the extra pillow time I get from our change in work hours. It does seem we are still caught in traffic in the morning, but the drive home is a breeze.

Finally some warm, sunny days have come along to lift my spirits.

That's it for this week, short and sweet. Off to link up with Virginia and Annie now.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Wow, how can it be Wednesday already? This week just seemed to fly past. Around here Wednesday means one thing only, and that is showing off our desks to other like-minded folk. Julia is the mastermind behind this and the original show me yours and I'll show you mine lady.

What we have here is a hot mess. Card making is in full swing, with lots of ideas floating around in my noggin that have to be channeled onto paper. I must get a card reader because phone pictures leave a lot to be desired and my camera is much better, but my laptop is in a mood and doesn't want to play with others right now.

Thanks for stopping by.

Rocking Your World Friday-Week 15

Wow how the time flies. Let's see what's been making everyone do a happy dance this week. Join up with Virginia and Annie and help make the cyber world a happier place. :-)

This week what Mr R has been trying to have happen for quite a while now has finally materialized. He now works in the warehouse instead of driving a truck all day. Why is this rocking my world? Because our hours have now changed and we don't start work until 10 in the morning which means an extra 2 hours between the sheets for me! Granted, we don't finish until later in the evening, but that also has its pluses as we are no longer stuck in traffic for our morning and evening commutes.

Our new grandbaby is doing very well. He is 3 weeks old today and has put on nearly 2 lbs since coming home from the hospital.

The little Gorgeous started her swimming lessons last Sunday and was happier than could be. They are half hour long, and she managed to stay focused on her instructor for 25 minutes. Not too shabby for a two year old.

Here are my smiles for the week.

Love my little ones!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week!

Not only is it Wednesday again, but I've been MIA for the last couple of weeks. Between getting used to new hours at work and that handsome new grandson of mine, crafting time has been hard to come by.

Fortunately I was able to sneak in a little bit of desk time and the evidence is pictured here.

A whole bunch of stuff and one card I'm still working on. What you can't see is off to the right is a stack of five cards waiting to be packaged up as well as a couple of samples with the project supply list for each one. I have to tell you, that container of samples and their supplies is a lifesaver sometimes when I need a quick card.

Join in with Julia and the rest of us and play peek-a-boo with some fun and crafty desks.

Thanks for stopping by.
