WOYWW #245

Hello Everyone,

It's What's On Your Work desk? Wednesday. If you would like to know what this is all about, head on over to Julia's blog, Stamping Ground.

Here's my desk.
This has been a busy, busy couple of days, and it shows. I needed to make 21 bookmarks (90% finished),  fill treat bags with candy (finished), makes a gift for the teacher (40% finished), and have my son fill out the cards (hasn't even started), all in time for my son's class Valentine's Day party on Thursday (Friday is the first day of winter break). The stamp and die set I order, for the bookmarks, arrived on Monday.  I die cut, stamped, colored, sponged, added the kids' on the back of the bookmarks, and now all that's left is to laminate them (of course I'm out of laminating film).

The red heart box is for my son's teacher. I need to finish the flowers, add die cut hearts on top, and fill with chocolates.
Here's the other side my desk. The Copics I used to color the bookmarks, some new dies I ordered, another heart box, and my flower making tools.
After I got to a good stopping point with the bookmarks, I began making flowers for the heart box.  I'm using one of my new die sets, Sizzix Susan's Garden Mini Daisy. This is my first time using these dies, it's a lot of work, but it was a relaxing process. All these die cuts turned into ......

.....these flowers. Not too bad for my first try
It's been a mad dash trying to get everything done by Thursday.

Update..I received an email, due to inclement weather, school will be closed Wednesday and Thursday. Oh well.

Thanks for stopping by
Have a Blessed Day

Now THAT's a bummer. But it's better than the kids sitting in school for two days with no food. I had to laugh when our district closed school last week before even a single SNOWFLAKE had fallen. I made the comment to my friend that they didn't want to make the news like Atlanta did.

Regardless, I love those flowers, and I'm sure there'll be a make-up day where the kids can celebrate.

Happy WOYWW from #1.

After reading your update ... I could cry for you.
I hope the school will hold the party at a later date ... but knowing you I am sure you will utilise them for something else.

Thanks for popping in to say hi and leaving a comment. I am loving what is on your desk and such a great gift. I am working Valentines away from home but hey I don't celebrate it anyway LOL I really enjoy the process of making flowers too and have the susan's garden dies but have only dabbled a little bit, need to relax and do some more soon.

Have a great Valentines

Hugs Eliza 10

Hi Regina,

Those bookmarks are so cute. You may not know this but I'm partial to owls! I'm sure your son's fellow students will love them.

Your flowers came out look great! I hope you show us the final heart box.
