If you are wondering why I am taking a picture of a tiny blue box and you start humming a galloping soundtrack complete with oooooooooooo eeeeeeeeeeee oooooooooooos, you are spot on. I am indeed making a tiny Tardis to hurl into that large Christmas ornament with ferocious snowmen and tiny whoville houses.. And the tardis will be wearing an "I heart heart Whoville" bumper sticker and be dangling (if I can manage it in 2 days) by a string held by the hand of the grinch. (It's a Doctor Who Goes to Whoville at Christmas mashup because the Grinch has a heart that's two sizes too small and the Doctor has two hearts). Faded Jeans Distress Ink got me in the Tardis color ballpark.

If all that is making you go huh? here is a nice soothing picture of a drawer that's been cleaned out, sorted and put back. The cloth is a piece of tack cloth to pick up all the sparkly embossing powder, the pink with the cord is my neglected glue gun, the light blue is my frequently used corner chompers and the pink is crop-a-dile, a round cork for pinning things down while they dry some baby wipes for cleaning. It is missing the cutting board with a handle (one side for heat embossing, the other for stamp carving and pyrography) .

And just reading the comments last week from all you smart creative Deskers, led me to a solution to the "Where are the hornets exactly" question. I put my camera on a tripod, a long, long tripod, set it to video and stuck it under the deck. Now I know exactly where it is, completely unsprayable because it is straight up from the edge but I'm thinking if I go out with a long hose wand and the nozzle tied to stun I might be able to blast them off at a distance. On the plus side, they are getting tired of vinegar lol.

I made a lot of things this week, used a HEAP of Jingle Bells, wrestled Cricut Craft Room and have been heat embossing for Scotland (you can scroll back if you've time and interest) and two cards with Moo-ment, but these two are my favorites.

This one is a larger, altered cow you've seen before. Altered so the legs can move (thanks to Tim Holtz tiny brads) and a moon made out of a white 2" circle punch and daubed at random in a "circley crater way" with the edge of a beauty sponge and Rusty Hinge Distress Ink. Less than an hour.

This one took 2 days to finish lol. You'll have to go to the post to read about it here because it's too long to type here.

So if you are wondering about WOYWW and you want to see other crafty Desks (or floors or tables) around the world, hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander. A goose will still have to be found on your own : D.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Oh, I totally get your mash up!! In fact I've been singing along while reading your post....I think we need to see photos when you've completed the whole thing though.
Are you going to have a Dalek-Grinch wrestling match too?? Grin...
Hugs, LLJ 26 xx

Neet said...

Ooh, please be careful with those hornets. I'd hate to read you had been stung.
Great cards on show and I can see why the second took so long. I spend too much time on planning a card so they take me ages too.
Have a good Tardis day.
Hugs, Neet 27 xx

I don't 'get' Dr Who stuff. I can only imagine you Whovians feel like I feel when I see paintbrushes!
Happy Wednesday
p.s. spellcheck wants to change Whovians to Bolivians! :)

Now I HAVE to go back and read - two days to finish a card, lovely as it is? I would lose the will to live, and probably end up binning it. But I guess I should read the story first - there might be a good reason it took so long LOL!
Tiny Tardis indeed, couldn't we all use one of them?

Happy WOYWW!

Hornets are such nasty critters. Hope you can get rid of them safely! Love the Tardis... I've just recently been watching past series and am up to Season 3 along with Torchwood (Season 1). Great cards, too! Happy WOYWW!

Well I will say 'Huh'.
Anyway the drawer looks interesting, Cropadile and corner cruncher, and what looks like a bar of soap.
Just love the cow, she is beautiful and the Happy day card is a very interesting idea.
Thank you for sharing.
