Whats On Your Work Desk Wednesday

It's that time again....time to get your snoop on thanks to Julia over at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/. Don't feel guilty, everyone is doing it! Thank you to everyone who stopped by last week and left me a lovely comment. I've been trying to make it to more and more blogs every week as long as I don't have kids melting down. ;)

I can't show you my first desk, as it has a work in progress for an upcoming ATC swap! So here is desk number two. I unpacked Mr. Vagabond and used him this week which was fun! Love that I can cut grunge board ~ super cool. The IKEA spice jars now have buttons in them since the flowers wouldn't fit. Wow, let me tell you, I didn't realize I had so many as to fill all the jars. Now that they are separated by color I will hopefully use them more.

These are the shelves to hold the new button jars. They come in natural wood, so I painted them a dark brown to match my desks. Can't wait to hang these babies up on the weekend!

More projects for my lil girls room. I found these awesome felt place mats at Bed Bath and Beyond and they were only $1! To spruce them up a bit, I added some stickles. They will be a boarder for one of her walls. She especially loves the butterflies!

Thanks for stopping by!
Much love,
