What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #761- Two Projects and A Mess!

 Hello, Crafty Peeps!

One of my first crafting promises to myself for 2024 was to enter more challenges (I rarely do) and the first challenge I wanted to participate in was WOYWW! I really enjoyed this challenge but had to stop for health reasons. The challenge is self-explanatory, but you can go HERE to get a better explanation!

It is fun to visit the blogs of these creatives!  All the blessed messes, the squeaky cleans, and the awesome inspiration are great ways to get over the "hump."

I have two projects to share this week!  

Gift Bag

This is the result of "extreme" procrastination.  I ordered the gift for my Rheumatologist three months ago.  My appointment is today at 8:20 am.  So, in the middle of my original mess (see below) I had to stop and start on this project.  I wanted to recreate a design I saw on a greeting card over at Lavinia Stamps.  I added my own elements.  I think it turned out okay!   My doctor loves fun socks, so I got "doc socks" as a fun gift and a beautiful "aerospace engineer" ink pen as a real gift!
The Final Product!

A Gatefold Card
This month on my challenge blog A Place to Start, our theme is "Create A Gatefold!"  I was following a tutorial and wanted to create a scenic gatefold.  I made a video for my YouTube Channel, but due to my procrastination, I won't be able to finish editing that until I come back from my treatment today.  Which means it won't get done until tomorrow.  I always have chills after the treatments and generally spend the next day or two in bed.  Hopefully, I will be able to add the video to this post tomorrow night.  This is, after all, a New Year!

The Finished Card

Thanks to everyone who visits!  I will make my visits as soon as I get home!  It is 1:00 am here and I have to be up at 5:00 am.
