WOWWW -193

And what a fun mess that is! I am almost done with my Valentines for my co-workers. I recently purchased a big shot off Facebook. I found some sell boards there and met a lovely lady who does what I do. Isn't that the biggest blessing! Meeting new folks who love to paper craft as much as you do! Anyway, I purchased a big shot from her along with a Sixxiz mini milk carton die. I am loving the big shot, as it takes fewer turns to crank the cut out than my grand caliber. My Grand Calibur has a larger platform, so it's still my favorite, however the big shots ability to cut thicker material like chipboard will enable me to do some fun altered art projects that I have been wanting to do.

See that big round wooden bowel....found that at a thrift shop. That was something I bought that never, ever had a home. I was about to toss it out when I tried it out in my craft room. I put a lazy Susan under it and toss things I am working with, in it. These are the things I need to put away, when the project is done. As you can see, it's has proven to be a good catch-all!

My favorite way of meeting new craft buddies, is through this blog. On Wednesdays, I plan to visit craft rooms all over the world. Pop over to Julia, at the Stamping Ground started this 193 Wednesdays ago! For a wonderful time exploring how other folks organize there craft rooms, you simply must visit! The photos you will see is, "what is on there desk on Wednesday morning". Usually messy, just as mine is. This is one time, you will never feel guilt for not cleaning up befor company!

What a great desk, the bowl works well for a catch all. I have a big shot and just recently discovered that it even cuts foam core.

Thanks for your visit Robin and reminding me about the gallery of cards I have posted. I forgot all about that. Now I just put everything on Pinterest.

Hey Robin, thanks for your visit yesterday. I used a Quickie Glue pen and then put Glamour Dust over the top of the glue.
Glamour Dust is easily the sparkliest glitter I have found, though you sparkle when you use it too. ;-)

Hi Robin,

Thanks for leaving a comment. About the silly deoderant balls... the plastic that holds the rolling ball in place is quite soft. I cut it with the craft knife that is on the craft mat. If you look hard, maybe magnify the photo, you will see a series of slits which fold back and the ball pops out.

I have a Big Shot too, and use it quite a lot, more so recently when many more dies have been created that appeal to me. Many of the really early Sizzix dies I found rather unimaginative. The milk carton packages are great.

All the best,
Ros. #154
