Happy WOYWW, dear friends! It’s time for another rendition of What’s On Your Work Desk Wednesday – the place where we share our workspaces, our latest creations, and share what’s new!
What Did I Create This Week?
I love receiving cards that contain subtle little surprises.
I’m not talking about cards stuffed with gifts or cash (although, of course, they’re always nice to receive!)
I’m talking about cards that – upon reflection – bring a smile to your face because they contain a deeper meaning or even something “punny” that wasn’t apparent at first sight.
That’s the beauty of today’s card – A Note Of Thanks – which features lovely vintage-styled musical elements from Close To My Heart’s B1266 – My Heart Stamp Set.
On the surface, it’s “just” a pretty thank you card – but it’s perfectly designed for the music teacher or the music lover that you owe a “note” of gratitude to in your life!
Subtle touches of iridescence add a nice sparkle to the otherwise soft and subtle color scheme of this card!
But – the craft room isn’t the only place that creativity struck this week!
Create With Joy Is Now On Instagram – Join Us!
A few days ago I decided to open an Instagram account. I really wasn’t sure what I would find as I was unfamiliar with the landscape, but turns out, I am loving it! So far, the community seems very friendly and welcoming. My account is still in “starter status” as I begin to share photos and connect with my friends, but if you are on Instagram – I’d love to connect with you! Just click on the photo above to instantly transport to my account and connect with me – I will certainly follow you back!

Where, Oh Where, Are The Crafty Coon Cats?
Ever take a photo that becomes an instant favorite?
This week, I shared a personal experience and how an interchange between the Crafty Coons helped pull me through. If you’d like to see one of the most special photographs I’ve captured of them – and hear a great song – be sure to visit us at Wordless Wednesday!
Feel free to share a photo – and feel free to be as wordy as you like!
