if my desk is dirty

it means I've been busy, which makes my heart truly soar.

I think Fedex knew I was waiting on that imagine to make it's way to my grubby lil hands.... it ended up arriving around 5:30pm Thursday, right in the middle of me starting on dinner.  It was SO fun to get it out of the box and get it calibrated. Ok, so the calibration part was NOT fun, but now that I know there's an advanced place to go to calibrate the machine, Leah's a happy camper. No biggie now.

I've made so many cuts, cards, etc with it testing and playing.. and the only thing I have to show for it is this canvas I made last night.  My children have begged, pleaded, and gave me puppy dog eyes for the sweet images I've been cutting out. It cuts SO much better than the expression did.  Don't know what I'm going to do with that now that I think about it, I don't have room to hold onto it. The imagine takes quite a big chunk out of my desk space.. space I had just been complaining about that I do not have enough of.

This is what my desk looked like last night as I hit the sack at 2am.
notice the paint on my imagine
it will wipe off easily I think.

I finally dug into some canvas the family bought me for my birthday last year, I used three 5x7 panels to make this.

It's hanging a bit funky.. I need to adjust the panels just a smidge, it's a total PITA. lol
Some close ups.

Popped up my birdies and heart.

Love the rock candy.. clear crackle. yum. and pearls and i-rock pretties.

I found out last night I won a prize pack from Imaginisce's blog.. their Animal Cracker new line!! So excited about that!! :) Thanks Imaginisce!

Hope your weekend is a good one! :)
