What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #88

Whew! How prepared am I? It's the wee hours and I'm photographed and uploaded for What's On You Workdesk? Wednesday. I can't believe it! Here's the state of affairs right now:


I'm all hot and heavy on an Altered Ancestors Little Fat Book swap. I'm having a blast pulling my "instant ancestors" together. I can't wait to see my pages, much less the finished book that will be sent back to me with one of my pages and a bunch made by fellow swappers! 

Here are the very beginnings of the three pages I'm focusing on right now (11 pages total). They will get loads more embellishment, including as much T!m Holtz product as I can squeeze on. Get this - the pages are 4"x4" and the active embellishment area is actually 2.5" wide to account for binding on the left side. That blank strip on the bottom right page is my guide so I don't go into the binding area (it's not attached). Talk about small canvas! I can't wait to show you what I'm going to do with that dear (innocent) lady... it makes me giggle just thinking about it. :)


Handy dandy T!m Holtz embellishment storage. I was so happy to put it all into this container - the packaging takes up so much space!


So anyway, that's it for now. If you want to play along and have a snoop around work spaces all over the world, check out the Queen of Snoop right here!

Thanks for visiting! Last week I did much better visiting other WOYWWers, but still didn't make it through to all 150+. It seems I've joined a quickly growing movement!

Cheers,
Susan

Love your pin cushion with all the decorative pins in it, and the little storage box is really useful, packaging does take up so much space doesn't it? Good luck with altering your ancestors!! Got a few I wouldn't mind altering too!!!!

Clever embellishment storage! I agree, the packaging takes up sooo much room. I need to come up with something like this! Star 102
