What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday

I'm finding myself sporadically playing along with this challenge, as posted on Julia's blog and shared by my blogging friend Linda. It's fun to see what kinds of projects are currently on the tables of creative people!



I usually work on the floor but for this project, I made a conscious effort to TRY to work on my table. Long story short: I couldn't do it. I ended up using the table as a "staging" area but still sat on the floor to put together my project. I guess I'm a whole lot more comfortable sprawled out on the floor than sitting in a chair.

Today I've been finishing up a Thanksgiving mini album for a class I'll be teaching this fall at Memory Bound. I used the WRMK 4x6 tablet as the foundation for this little album. You may recall that I made a Halloween version of this album awhile back. And as soon as the product comes in, I'll be making a Christmas album, too!

This little album has over 25 pages of different sizes and configurations, pockets, and plenty of space for small photos. Many of the pages are actually journaling cards, so I decided to make this album about gratitude. The album has lots of room to write about life's many blessings.

It would be easy to add a few seasonal recipe cards to this album. Just punch holes and stick them into the album for a fun (and useful!) holiday keepsake.

I stand to work, and I firmly believe you need to make art where you feel comfortable. I was really impressed by that Thanksgiving album. Hope the class is a success.

I was here earlier, and tried to leave you a comment. I keep getting a 503 error. Not sure what's wrong with blogger, but it's making it hard to get through the extra long list this week.

Just happened by your blog and I have to say, I really like this album, especially the colors. Very beautiful!

Love the cute kitties, amazing they let you dress them up! Bloom where you are planted, if that's the floor then so be it! I just hope you don't make your class attendees sit on the floor!

It's lovely Janet, gorgeous papers, I am a sucker for a mini book I must be honest - all that potential journalling!

Glad I made it to see your gorgeous mini album as your linky thingy wasn't working properly.

See you next week.......A.xx
