Wow, that's such a clean desk! ;) I know it was a staged shot. Haha :)
I love your card, though I normally do not like the red and black color combo, I think you've pulled it off there! :)
I seriously have to get some studying done but hope you get a chance to mess that desk back up again soon. :)

Good lord..I had to rub my eyes. Make it go away Sandee, I don't like it! Am slightly intrigued by the fact that you keep bling in the same drawer as eyes!!

I was just thinking, boy she has cleaned up her act...wonder if she is giving up creating! So glad to hear it's only temporary! Have a great week!

Angela Secrest said...

It's nice sometimes isn't it, to just have a blank slate. Nothing pressing to be done, nothing screaming finish me! Sometimes a fresh start is just the ticket to make a big ol mess!

So extremely tidy! I loved your factotum comment. My new word for the day. I am one!(I think..I've been just calling it "maid service" ..factotum sounds much more impressive. Saw that you are in Hendersonville...I'm about an hour south (G'ville). We visit H. from time to time. Lovely city. Nice to meet you...always nice to find a good nay-bor! Hugs

Katie said...

AH! A clean desk! I love it! I do the same whenever I clean mine, I enjoy it...for just long enough for AJ to see it...then I mess it up again...oops!
