What's On My Workdesk April 25

Here are my pics for WOYWW!!
My desk isn't all that messy. After every craft outburst, I just HAVE to clear it away. Not just because my desk is right out here in the living room area but I HAVE to keep it clutter-free, somewhat...

 Here's my tiny collection of Stickles.I HAD more colors but that's a long story as to why I don't now, hehe. I need to get more.I love them!!!

...and here's my item to recycle this week. Yup, an empty Q-tips box!

My photos are kept in this box.

 Here's a tin of reuseable items. Sometimes I go thru my cards and take apart any that I don't fancy anymore. Even tho I may not like the card for whatever reason I CAN'T just throw it away! Oh no! I have to pull off anything that I can use again somewhere else on some other card or scrapbook page.

 Here are more treats that Hubby bought me! HUGE Big Turk and HUGE pack of Rolos.

...and he bought me some M & M's to nibble on. I don't have them opened yet.I think he asks every day if I have them opened yet! I'm saving them for...I don't know ,actually! Hmmmm, maybe I SHOULD open them and start chomping down on a few of them!

Oh, and here's our girl!!!
SMILE!!!

We heard some sad news today. A radio-host in Newfoundland ,BIG TOM , passed away this morning  at an early age of 39. He was really liked by many in Newfoundland and will be missed on K-Rock!! Saturdays in the Shed won't be the same without him! His BIG laugh will be missed,too!


Let It Snow?

What's On Your Workdesk Ap 18th

Well,I haven't done a lot of crafting this week so my desk is rather clean, I suppose. See my candy!!! "Good and Plenty" licorice and a chocolate egg. Hubby keeps me supplied with goodies like that!! Oh, and there are mints over on the left!
 Oh my! I opened a new container of coffee yesterday,and couldn't throw away that cover. I've used them before to punch dies and they were neat on cards!!!
 Had to go find my CHRISTMAS folder as I've been making Christmas cards lately too!
 I don't have much fabric but guess where I got these samples!?? From old wallpaper sample books! Those material pieces come in handy at times!!!
 Here are our tickets for TITANIC. Have to scrapbook them ASAP!

Well, that's what's on and around my desk today.
