What’s on your Work Desk–Wednesday 230



Wednesday roll around so quickly!  Each Wednesday crafters from around the world post photos of their desks and what they have been up to on Julia Dunnit from Stampin Ground’s blog.

This week, I posted my very first video.  Without a camera and without a tripod.  I asked an internet friend how she did it, and she sent a photo saying it was her “redneck” setup.  I had to send a photo back and say, here is my Okie setup!

I just hung the IPad over an organizer on my desk, and started filming.  I redid it over and over and over, and decided I will never be perfect, I will learn to be better with time and added it to my blog post How to Make a Liner with your Envelope Punch Board.  If you post video’s to youtube, please share what kinda of camera you have and what software you use to edit it.  I would LOVE to know what you use!

You also see a card I am working on.  My first attempt on a card usually gets thrown away, while I am figuring out how to put it together.  This is really a cute idea, just above the “Christmas” you can see some flaps, you open the card this way and out POP’s a gift card.  Yep the gift card, kinda POP’s out.  Just figured out the card fold, I need to have a few of these on hand for Birthdays and Christmas coming up.  Will blog about how to put it together later so subscribe to my blog and you will get the update.

Just noticed a candy dish my dear sweet MIL painted. 

I will finish with the craziest thing I seen yesterday.  We have a little Yorkie with a very little bed.  My son has a 65 lb Border Collie Mix.  He spent the night Tuesday, along with “Donnie” his dog.  When I got up, this is where I found Donnie.  I have seen him do this before, he circles and circles and circles, until he can get his butt in the tiny little bed….of course, he looked at me with those sweet eyes, that said, “please don’t make me move” so I ran and got the camera!  Sheesh!

Hi Robin - your Donnie pic is still making me smile! Love those POP up cards - will have to watch out for your tutorial. Will also try and catch your video but I'm busy prepping for my craft fair (now that the snowman is finished!). Those little pots are flock - like fuzzy glitter but not glittery. The colours look lovely don't they? Thanks for your visit today, have a fun week. Hugs MMx #41

Hey Robin I just joined your blog I want to make sure I don't miss out on the pop up gift card post.I'll go check out your video on envelopes. Very ingenious how you rigged the ipad. Happy snooping Carole #65

Oh that doggy picture is the funniest thing. Aren't they hilarious with their antics? Thanks for visiting us already.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

What a daft dog!! He's determined to stay in that little bed...what I want to know is did your little dog sleep in Donnie's big bed?? Lol, that would be funny too.
Well done on filming your own tutorials, the very thought fills me with horror....*shivers*
Hugs, LLJ 35 xx

Pets can always make us smile. I am no expert at taping or bloging. I just do it for me and my friends. It is good enough for us. Peg R #71

That pic of the dog is so funny- they are crazy sometimes, our pets, aren't they? Love the card- brilliant idea. Have a great week, Shaz #56. xx

I watched your video, good for you! I too am beginning to make YouTube videos and am working through the beginner jitters. I use my Nikon CoolPix to film and then edit in Movie Maker (of course this is on my laptop). I just bought the envelope maker a little while ago, you have given me one more reason to love it. Thanks for your visit today. Kim #77

Your Christmas card is looking very elegant, but your sweet dog in the small bed stole the show for me. Congratulations on getting your 1st video up. Happy WOYWW and Blessings! #24

VonnyK said...

Your card looks beautiful, I'd love to see how you make it pop up. Doggy looks so cute in the little bed, I hope your yorkie wasn't underneath :)
Have a great week,

Your Christmas card looks interesting. I am afraid I keep mine as uncomplicated as possible because I need so many.
I did smile at the photo of the dog. When our latest addition was a pup, he took over the cats bed, but when he fell asleep he always fell out of it because it was so small. He is an Alsation-matiff cross so now he is ten months old he is bigger than either of our others, and not even his 'butt' would fit in the cat bed! Kate x #44

Hi Thanks for visiting me and I love the card on your desk, it looks really Christmassy. You are very brave doing a video, watched a bit of it and it is good. Really clever using the ipad
Well done.

Your Okie set-up looks great--congratulations on your first video!

That dog, what a funny fellow--great pic, all curled up in the teeny bed. Of course you couldn't make him move, not after all that effort! :)

Thank you for stopping by this week!
