WOYWW214, Blog Hops, Giveaways and Burlap Bags

It's Wednesday and that means we get to peek at workdesks around the world to see all the amazing spaces and projects being created.  Just head on over to Julia's Stamping Ground for all the fun.

 I finally got a chance to snap a quick photo of my new workspace.  This is just a tiny bit of it as I can't get the entire room in the photo.  

For those who don't know, my DH graciously gave up his office space and his big desk so that I could move into the larger room.  Now, the computer, and my workspace are all together. The built in shelving has a counterpart on the opposite wall with windows in between.  More on that later. 

I also have a quick way to transform a simple burlap bag using only May Arts Ribbon and Scor-Tape.

Scor-Tape sticks to the burlap like a magnet!
Two rows of gorgeous May Arts Crochet Lace.
Beautiful, yes?  I added May Arts Lace with Pearl Center over the Crochet lace. More Scor-Tape holds down the beautiful Jumbo Leaves and that awesome Shabby Flower.
Don't forget you can win your choice of May Arts Ribbons and Lawn Fawn Stamps/dies in the Blog Hop this week.  Yep, you can choose any ribbons you want...even these beauties.
Pop over to the May Arts and Lawn Fawn Blogs all week...there are 2 giveaways so you have more chances to win and be inspired by all the wonderful projects.
My project day is Friday...see you then!

Pin It!
