WOYWW - What's on your Desk Wed #141

My desk is a mess... It's been a while since I've uploaded what's on my desk but thought I'd give it a go again. Julia over at Stamping Ground   shows us hers and the rest of us... follow along BIG GRIN

I've given myself a challenge to only use the scraps of cardstock and paper that I've amassed over the years to create any new cards... I've also given myself to the end of March, to see how it goes. Hence the more than messy desk. Those drawers on the left side have a few of the stash pile, more all over my home. The card in the foreground is only done with scraps.

Then I also just picked up a package at the post office. Got my new Purple Cow "Wind It', Pin It, and Trim It gadgets. You can see a couple of wire forms I made using the Wind It gadget (on the left). Going to have fun with it. The Trim it has 9 blades in the housing to do all kind of cutting edges. I like it because it's all in one cutter... and then that Pin It gadget, which I haven't actually used yet, but has really nice staples of leaves, hearts, butterflies etc and can staple it anywhere on the page (magnetic type gadget).

So that's what's on my desk. Look forward to seeing everyone else's desk.

I am also using only my scraps or items I have on hand this year. It seems to be the year to use things up. Thanks for dropping by my place. Happy WOYWW from #3.

Well done for deciding to use your scraps - love the card I can see - I made it one of my resolutions this year, but still can't help cutting into new papers as well (Hazel, WOYWW #136) x

Gosh till the end of March? I think the end of March 2013 would be an appropriate time for me and my stash!! I like your card very much. Those purple cows, they get more clever don't they!

I love to use up my stash making cards and layouts. I belong to the Counterfeit Kit challenge where we copy a monthly kit...from our own stash.
So economical and so much fun.

Good luck with your challenge.

It must be the recession that has many of us looking at our leftover stash with a fresh eye ... I know I have pledged not to buy any new stash this year unless it is an absolute essential and, so far, I'm enjoying the challenge too ... hope you are enjoying your challenge. Have a great Sunday.
