hence: adverb

from this place
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello WOYWW stalkers......errr.....visitors!
What's on my desk, you ask? Well, yesterday there were 24 little Christmas Tree table place cards which will hold a dinner mint in each one for the guests of the lady who commissioned me to make them.  I delivered them today to Art MoB for pickup, hence there is nothing on my desk today! 
I had a couple of people ask me last week about the round silver thing off to the right which holds my lamp. It's something you put a cake on to cool after it comes out of the oven, I got mine from a Thrift store for 50 cents. It has an added benefit of holding my stickles upside down while I am working with them.
 
entering my place card boxes in:
 

Cricut cartridge - Tags, Bags, Boxes and More , 1.5"
Fiskars embossing plate - Snowflakes
Ranger's stickles - Frosted Lace, Xmas Red, Green, BabyBlue, Golden Rod
sequins and beads - misc.
Tattered Angels - Glimmer Mists, Pearl
ScorPal - Score tape
Aleene's Tacky Glue
 
Have a great day y'all :)

That cooling rack is a great idea. Unfortunately, the one I had free with my microwave, that sat in my kitchen cupboards just taking up space, finally got thrown away about a year ago- now I find a use for it, lol. I shall be looking in charity shops for a new one now, lol.Have a great week, Hugs,Shaz #54

The place cards are great, and even better is the fact that they hold chocolates!!

Thanks for visiting the bears today :)

Cute placecards! And the cake cooler is a great repurposing idea. :)

Sunshine Girl said...

Those place cards are lovely and I love your little cake thingy for keeping your stickles upside - I have only just discovered that trick but have yet to try them since storing them all upside down in a box! Thanks for sharing. Sunshine Girl no. 21

Wow Sandee! Love those lickle name boxes. How fabulous are they and you must have patience of a saint to make them. But then so must the lady who wanted them - 24 to dinner!

Hi Sandee,

Cute name cards!

Haa. Realtor came over yesterday - ALMOST ready to list my place. Although I'm going to try to sell it for one month by myself. I've been packing and getting rid of things left and right. I'm exhausted....

Hugs,
Kay

Just noticed your paper towel holder...brilliant! Your desk has some fab storage/organization pieces and looks like it would be wonderful to craft at, everything seems handy and like its set up really well. Thank you for the surprise I received in the mail, you have such a sweet heart! I really wasn't expecting it at all. :)

Hey! That's my cousin "Name Goes Here"! ;-) I love seeing repurposed kitchen stuff being used in crafting. Your idea of the cake cooling rack is excellent and certainly easier than baking a cake.
