What’s on your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) 100!

My work desk has been overloaded!   Join Julia for WOYWW!  Trying to be ready for my new shoppe has kept me busy with lots of diecuts.  dress forms, buttons, flowers, banners, keys, locks, etc!  I’ll also be working on some vintage inspired pins and seam binding.  I plan to offer kits for some of the projects and albums that are most requested.  I plan to have some items in the “shoppe” by next week.
WOYWW
Three of our teenagers were helping me and the love to use my Accucut…busy, busy!  Hubby was bust cutting down some boxes for me Smile.  All of my diecuts will be cut from recycled boxes.

Love your son's shirt, looks like you are getting ready to open soon. I just noticed the Shoppe button at the top of the blog. I'm now a follower! Let a few of us know when your grand opening is so we can do a write a post the same day. I would love to advertise your grand opening on my site, give up some details of what you will offer so we can post for you! Wishing you the best hon! ~Diane
