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.
