playing it straight.

2.7.09 desk

current state of my desk.
it is a mess and I am tired of it so I started cleaning and purging until my heart was content.
now to organized and rearrange, so I am off to target!
you can help me by taking this....
purge rak
lots of good papers, embellishments, mini album (including a pack of thickers) and stamps.
I am thinking of making a video post soon, what do you want to chat about, leave me comment and I will pick a winner on Monday. US residents only, this is a heavy box, sorry sweeties next time I will not restrict.


  1. needless to say, I love your comments on GG, Hills/City, and other tv shows! :)
    And whenever you post tutorials and how to's

    happy saturday, vee!

  2. How's bout GG? I've missed the last couple of shows. :) Looks like a lovely box!

  3. Wow! I can't believe you want to get rid of this stuff! Wish i had a permanent desk to work on. Mayve one day! Please don't mention what's going on in GG, series 2 only just started over here! (Don't count me in for the RAK, i'm an international). xoxo

  4. a video post about ur style / style inspirations both for fashion and scrapping would be AWESOME!! cuz i see a definite lineup of both through your blog. I'm not a us resident yet but if i win it'll be going to the US apt lol
    that stuff is GORGEOUS!!!

  5. OH MY GOODNESS !!! These goodies look awesome.I so hope i get to play with these. I've been unable to craft for almost 3 weeks, just got a new knee and still trying to get it to follow commands.
    Chat???How about how to take a picture of your work and get it to look as good as the real thing.AND how do you upload it to someones gallery and or thread.
    How to participate in an online crop?
    I'm not ms. techno savvy so this stuff baffles me.
    I love those

    Happy Weekend to you! I would love to know how you decide what layouts to send in for publication and what the process entails when trying out for the big magazine DTs.


  7. Oh, fun! Organizing always makes me happy (after I'm done that is!). Anything scrappy related would be fun to post about I would think, can't wait to see what you post!


  8. If you pick me, you won't have to ship it.

  9. wow, this stuff looks so yummy! Good for you for organizing, my space needs it badly. It would be fun to see a video post about how you put together a layout from start to finish!

  10. Haha I was going to say The City like someone else already has. Mainly what you think about Olivia? I think she is up to something! Or Bromance... strange show!
    How about mini-books?! I want to start making them and yours are always so awesome and inspiring. Maybe a little chat about that will give me the kick to get started.

  11. Hey Vee!! I thought of you when my tape of LOST cut off in the last 3 minutes this week! LOL...
    I was feeling bad for poor Sawyer when he saw Kate too! :(
    Hmmm... I like when you clean your desk... I think you should clean, say, your jewelry too ;)

  12. hey vee!
    how about chitty-chatting about all the things that are inspiring you right now to create.... maybe things that are un-scrapbook related but makes you want to create a LO.
