My Stampin' Up! Classes

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

My kid is at my work desk this Wednesday... (WOYWW #72)


Well, I caught my 10-year-old daughter working at my desk. She wanted to cover 10 scratch pads she found in a cabinet with some of my designer paper for a store her classmates are setting up in school on Friday. The design is all her idea (bottom photo). She said the white label is for each kid to write his or her name on the pad. The paper is from the Stampin' Up! Celebrations pack, and a Designer Regal button is the only embellishment. My kids have watched me stamp for years, so I trust them completely when it comes to using my craft items. And I love watching them create! I'm so proud she did this all on her own.

So what have I been doing? I met with three stamp clubs Monday (two at the same time) and still have all of the supplies for the projects in their totes. Aside from school projects my kids have, I'd like to get things like my punches and ink pads and such put back in place so I have an easier time prepping for a Christmas card class next week. But first, I get to enjoy a day at the Portland Regional Seminar this Saturday with many members of my American Ink downline. I'm excited! There will be demonstrations, make & takes, swapping and great displays. It's a wonderful way to spend a day!

Thanks for dropping by for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW). Now join Julia and the others at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/. Have a great week!

How FUN! I loved it when the kids thought they were being so sneaky - someday they'll learn that they never REALLY got away with anything! It should be a lucky week for all of us! See ya next week ;)

It's lovely to see the Children getting Arty and creative, my granddaughter comes over Tuesday night and causes havoc in my room. Wants to make things all the time, last night a folder had to use my bind-it-all now that shows you how advanced children are getting to be. Lovely craft room you have. Love and Hugs JO *96
