It is the last Wednesday this year that I will share my desk… because next week, on X-mas day, all hell will break loose on my blog as the Top 2ooo Musical Blog Party starts December 25th! (And as far as you did not know yet: YOU too are invited to join the party!)
But today is still ‘normal,’ so come on in and I show you a golden oldie scrapbook layout and of course a photo of my desk! Oh, and I throw in a brand new art journal page also…
Let us start with a “Golden Oldie” layout.
(I don’t create ‘traditional scrapbook layouts’ anymore but every Wednesday I dive into my albums and lift a ‘golden oldie.’ The layouts I pick are random, YOU – blog readers – name the number of the album and layout to show. Let me know in a comment which album you want me to open next week – to avoid that you name layouts that have already been requested, you can find a list showing the ‘free’ numbers to choose from on this page.
Today’s request came from Nan G. from Froggy Designs who asked me to publish Layout No. 4 from Album 4.
I found a very appropriate layout (spread) – at least the time of year is right – because the spread is themed New Years Eve 2006… but I also find it a very boring spread! I made it in the ‘early years of scrapbooking’ and there’s not much to see but a few photos (of which I blurr some too, because I don’t want to put the face of a friend online without permission.)
New Years Eve 2006
In the same album, in the plastic covers before this spread, there’s layout #3 and that one is, if possibly, even more appropriate… Since I am looking forward to next week and have music on my mind all day I show that one too!
Listening to the Top 2000 (December 2006)
The official Top 2000 list for this year will be announced next Monday… which is rather late, as in former years they published the official list in the first week of December already, and I/we could start creating much earlier!
However, that is beyond my control. I will publish the link to the list of this year – along with all the info about my Top 2000 Musical Blog Party – as soon as it is made public ( Monday) so we can start to create to the music right then and there!
And here is the last photo of the year of my desk how it looked this morning.
This photo is taken for “What’s On My Work Desk? Wednesday,” Julia’s weekly event. On woyww-day, crafty and artistic individuals around he world share pictures of their desks. Hop on over to Julia’s blog Stamping Ground to find out all about it.
I did not plan to send out Christmas cards this year, but last week I decided to create at least a few cards to send to my dearest loved ones and family. I hope to finish these later this week and send them before the New Year.
I wish you all a nice, bright week and – in case you are ‘not around’ before Wednesday: happy holidays!
Hope to see (a lot of) you next week to play along at least one time with the musical Top 2000 party… (yep, again I mention it… can you tell I am looking forward to this event??!!!)
