What A Girl Wants Desk Set



It feels like it's been forever since my last post. Last Friday was my birthday. I had a great day. Thursday night, at work, on my regular guests came in and gave $50.00 for my birthday! I couldn't believe it! I took Friday off, and my mom, stepfather, and Jenny came. We went out to lunch and then to Violette's. I spent my birthday money at Violette's. She had just got in a new shipment of Justrite Stamps, and I was psyched. I need more Christmas and Snowmen stamps like I needed a hole in my head, but I had to have them! Mom and Jenny made me card. I was cleaning out my supplies one day, and had a whole bunch of embellishments that I had made that I gave to them. I figured they could make some quick and easy cards. Well, they did, they stuck them to a piece of cardstock! It's a funny and crazy card. I will post a picture of the card this week. My friend, Victoria, and her 3 year old son made me cupcakes and he sang on the phone to me. It was so sweet. Dad sent some movies, and some cat treats for my fur babies. It was a good day.

Now, onto my project. I've been looking everywhere for a desk organizer box that would fit the larger cards. I love the template, From The Desk Of, by Lauren Meader. But, it only fits the smaller A6 cards. Then I had a "moron, your bus is leaving moment" (Bill Murray-Groundhog Day), and I just made it a little bigger and it worked! The desk organizer has a set of 5 cards and envelopes. I made a little journal with my Bind-It-All and added a few pens. The flower on the front is one that I crocheted and quickly attached it before Tedy could lose it. The directions for the flower can be found on Nichole Heady's blog. I made the little pearl embellishments on the front of the bows.
