WOYWW? New Drawers!

All right, all right.  Settle down.  Not those kind of drawers!  Drawers for my Distress Inks.  And woo hoo it's easier to get to them now.  I had them in the nifty Tim metal containers, which were great until I needed to pull them out, then there was no place to put them and work on the desk at the same time.  So now I have drawers. 
And I realize it's not technically on my desk but beside it. 
But if you are interested, on my desk is a calendar in progress made with Denami Designs chicken stamps. 
These guys are too cute!  But the problem is that they are very small, so I stamped them and then scanned then into the computer and then printed them out at whatever size I needed. 
Granted, the outlines become less clear and crisp when blown up, but they are still pretty darn cute.  I have January thorough May to share today, hope you enjoy!  Merry Christmas is almost here!  And just to brag a little all my presents are wrapped!  Which is a big deal, as I didn't have them wrapped until about an hour before family came over last year to unwrap them. 
So I'm ahead of the game this year.  And, big news, my sister (who is 24 years younger than me, pretty wild!) got an early acceptance letter to Appalachian State University so we are all very excited here.  Off to color and stamp and finish this calendar so I can start on another one for the kitchen, but it's going to be a scrapbooked calendar, no chickens, it's just to cruel to have the cute chickens in there looking at me when I cook...on the rare occasion that I do cook... chicken. 
Here's hoping you all have wonderful holidays and I'm going to have a lovely snoop around your desks to see what's happening.  And if you don't know about this WOYWW phenom, click here to be transported to the Lovely Julia, the Queen of WOYWW.  Happy Holidays to all and to all a good snoop!

I still need to wrap our pressies, before the recipients arrive, that is if they can get through the snow. My poor husband had to remove over 1 foot from the top of the Discovery this morning before he could think of getting our. He left me at home , enjoying myself sorting out all my storage into a sensible order, making sure that the contents matched the labels. Good fun. Love your calendar, anothe thing I meant to have a go at this year. Oh well, there is always next year.
Happy Christmas

Yippe, you're ready for the gift opening ceremony - and your calendar is ready. It is darling, very whimsical.
Believe it or not, I have a baseball cap I bought at Appalachian State University when I visited there over 12 years ago! Congrats to your sis ;)
Merry Christmas to all!

The calendar is soooo adorable. Love how you used the stamps, scanner and printer to get the chicks big enough for a calendar. Great job!

Thank you for the inspiration. Happy Holidays!
