The blue thing on the left is a mouse mat. I grabbed it from work, after realizing I have three in my classroom and never use any. I'm going to try if I get better images from stamping. Just got some new stamps from Rubber Dance, tried them out on a calendar background and a card. Alphabet stamps placed on my TacknPeel block, a pile waiting to be cleaned further back. A couple of pieces on the left are waiting to be heated (embossing powder already in place...) My heat gun shut itself down on Saturday, so I've been embossing over the toaster in the kitchen. A new heat tool has been ordered... if I'm lucky, the old one can be fixed and I'll end up with two. The yellow folder holds my calendar pages, still two to go and Christmas is next week! Behind it is a glimpse of my tenor recorder. This time of the year means C-music in a few places and that is there because I don't need it (playing descant and treble).
