Ah I remember when I use to hunch over on the floor to do any stamping now I have a desk and it's such a treat :)  So I was grabbing my rubber stamp binder and it was falling apart from all the stamps I have in it and I'm not going to replace it but I've taped it all up for the time being and then I started to go thru my stamps and stamp and organize thru them. I organize them by company/seasonal. Some that I no longer using so I pop them away till I choose to look in my little box or trade/lend/give them with my sister.
So I'll be playing around with this for a while and let's see the stamps you can see are some
LOTV, Tickled Pink(retired) Elizabeth Bell, Whiff of Joy, Polka Doodles that I really have to cut and use they are so cute, So many stamps so little time.

thanks for looking at my desk and pop by Julia's to see everyone else's space

WOYWW + Happy Mail !!

WOYWW Check out what's it's all about here at Julia's
 My Desk this week is filled with Happy Mail From Kay We share the same Bd's and She sent me some fun Handmade goodies :) the cards are photos she took and the necklace/bracelet  she made I LOVE THE COLOURS IN IT and it's so soft, plus I really mostly wear handmade items, love Handmade any day. (oh yes I'm wearing it as a bracelet right now)The other happy mail is from  Robyn I was lucky to win her Spellbinder die so kewl haven't played with it yet  came to check out everyone's desk 1st :)  1 of 3 of my new James the Bear LOTV stamps he is so my fave the new ones are too cute . I found Loz selling off some of her used stash and couldn't help myself in getting a couple. Funny thing is it was quicker to get something from AUSTRALIA then From the States (still waiting on the mail man) and I bought them the same day go figure !!! but it also might mean I have to pay duty UGG!!!
So technically my desk didn't have anything on it till I opened my mail from after work
 I have been a tidy girl on the weekend I went thru my bulky cards and made a couple of box envelopes for them so now they can be sent with out being squished through the post

Oh and here's the finished card I was making last week it has the flowers on it but I did cut off the 2nd layer they where too big and added in some buttons used the hot glue gun to make it all stay in place and a little glitter 3-d Book that  is bound with some hemp.

WOYWW it's that time in the week where we all show our desks off at Julia's
I'll show you my finished Halloween Card using my newest digi from
Limited Runs She's in the store too
She's Called Scarecrow Girl and that's my Handwriting for the tag seeing I didn't have a stamp that would fit in it properly

So here's my desk LOOK AWAY if you don't want to see CHRISTMAS LOL but that's what I'm working on at the moment. It's those endless supply of cards I need to have to mail out to my friends. I'm Also trying to use up the last of one of my Christmas papers so I can get some new xmas stash of papers. I'm using one of my fave Stamps Motivet they no longer make rubber and only do digital but I have a few of them and have to use them every year, on a couple cards. I'm trying to figure out how to fit some flowers on the card but I honestly struggle using them. Some people there cards are full of them and me I move them around then put them back in my pile at the end.
So thanks for taking a peak at my space and I'll pop around and visit a bunch of you and anyone who leaves a comment :)
Also I still have Candy going on for Halloween ends Sept 20th

Hugs Nikki
