Okay... here's my desk as I left it last night....

I know.. clean? Sort of. About two-thirds of the top is cleared ready for the next project.
The stuff to the left - the stacks of night shirts for the girls I still need to trim with puff paint, and the witch hat door hanger in progress. I need more flowers. 

A shot at the full length taken from the office door. 

And full scope of what you can't see in either of the other two pictures.
My punch rack is attached to the end of the work table, you can see a pile of stuff by the paint can I need to go through. The paint can is being used for cubby's I'm painting. The stack to the left  is all of my fair ribbon binders I told you about, the September Paper Pumpkin kit and nesting Paper Mache boxes for one of the 13 Days of Halloween projects.

Speaking of 13 Days of Halloween... I started on Monday October 2nd HERE and am putting up a new Halloween-related item every day through Friday the 13th.

And here is today's project - 
13 Days of Halloween Day 4:

I was inspired by THIS Pinterest post.
The actual post is on a Bloglovin' blog that has a pop-up at the bottom requesting you sign up for her newsletter. There is no way that I can see to get rid of it without actually signing up or connecting with her on FB. 

You'll see that mine is quite different. I think she used the larger card mat. Three banners will not fit across a standard 4.25x5.5 card base.

Since I'd already cut three circles/ mats/ banners, I turned them in to three separate cards you'll see throughout the 13 posts. 

I used the Spooky Fun stamp set from last years Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog as well as the Designer Series Paper, washi and bakers twine from there. The three Black Rhinestones are from this year's 2017 Holiday catalog.

I intended to have the witch hat door hanger today but I ran out of flowers so I need to pick up some more at $ Tree before I can finish the project.

I'm racking up the Halloween cards and I intend to mail every one. 
I'm not sure what tomorrow's post will be but Friday I'm hoping to have the video of the beginnings and first week of my October Daily album. I hope you'll come back.

That's it for my desk this week. Who's Miss Julia and why am I here?  That's my desk? What's on yours? When you are done visiting me in the Ozarks, please hop on over to Stamping Ground where Miss Julia has a long list of other studios you can peek into. No standing on an up-turned milk pail to look in the window. We open the doors wide and welcome you.  Please leave your number and you'll be among the first on my list. 

Creative Blessings!


  1. Afternoon Kelly. Goodness. You are going to be busy if you are aiming to post something different every day. I admit I don't do Hallowe'en at all - so no orange and black will appear on my site...
    Take care, girl. God bless.

  5. Sounds like a fun October challenge! Your first card is very cute! What a long expanse of desk with nothing on it! Lots of space to work and spread out - I have a feeling it will be very busy very soon! Thanks for sharing, have a great week! Lindart #32

  6. Hi Kelly, nice and tidy today. Great cards too. Have a good woyww and happy crafting, Angela x11x

  7. You're right Kelly, no milk pails. I sometimes wonder if I ought to provide proper warning though! your desk looks like a landing strip with all that stacked at one's huge! i don't think I possess anything Halloween related, it's a little thought of thing here, so I love your idea for 13 days, that's a lot of fun. And some work gal, good on you!
