Clean off your desk challenge

8 Comments

My craft desk was a complete mess, so I created a swap to challenge myself.  “Clean off your desk Challenge” was a swap that you were to take a “before” photo of your craft desk top –yes as is, a mess…

I had tons of projects and supplies on my craft desk top. I wanted to actually UTILIZE all the stuff laying ON my desk top & not go into any other supplies around my craft room. Great idea huh? Yeah, well, when I actually was able to complete 40 cards from all that stuff JUST on my desk top, it made me really stop to think… DO NOT buy anymore new stuff.

Due to time restrictions, I was only able to make 40 cards…. I still probably could make another 60 with the supplies/stuff STILL on my desk top.  With my new position as work, I don’t have all craft time I used to have for my swaps right now.  Makes me sad that I can’t craft as much as I want to, but the OT pay from work makes me happier for my savings for my Galapagos trip!! 🙂   I’ll have time to craft again soon…. 🙂

I got a new underwater camera for my birthday! Its a Canon Powershot D10. LOVE IT! Its 98% just like my daily use Canon Powershot, but this new one can go UNDER WATER!!!  I played around with it in our pool with our dogs to discover the settings and such. Pretty cool! It even has a flash!!  Can’t wait to take it on my trip to the Galapagos Islands next year!! 🙂
