What's on your Work desk Wednesday 194

If you are visiting from Stamping Ground here is a peek at my workstation for this Wednesday. After you read my blog check out other's work desk area you never know what ideas will come from peeking in on someone else work.

I finally got to work on my monthly mini album.
Here are some of the pages that I got to complete. I am so excited I actually got to work on some pages. I do like the size 6x6 compared to last years album that was 12x12.

One of my new years resolutions was to read more and I took a trip to the library to start. I also found a new love of Keurig. I do not like coffee but I was able to find Hot Chocolate and Tea (Letters used are by American Crafts Hugs Robin Egg Blue)

Now I just need to take some photos and print off some photos and this page will be complete. I work in a 50+ year old school building so I may need more than one page.

(* Note that the card with the brown dots really does not go with the page)

I am looking forward to finishing up the month

The paper is from the February Kit from Cocoa Daisy. The plan is to use the kit up before the next month's arrives. So far I am on schedule.

Letter writing

When was the last time you actually took a moment and wrote a handwritten letter? 

February is here and I try to write my friends and families a card and have them post marked by a town with a valentine theme. 

All you have to do is complete your cards and address them. When addressing them make sure to leave plenty of room for the postmark.  Add the needed postage to each card. Then in a larger envelope address it as Postmaster, Valentine Re-Mailing, City, State & Zip code.

Also include a little thank you for the postman that is hand cancelling each card.
My favorites are:

  • Loveland, CO 80538
  • Valentine, TX 79854*
  • Loving, NM 88256
  • Romance, AR 72136
*The young kids get a chance to design the postmark. Each year it is different.

Here are some examples from years past:

Are you planning on sending any valentine this year?
It may be fun to include this and make them even more unique.
Thanks for stopping by!
