WOYWW. #369

Well it is already that time again to show my desk and here it is ....

I have once again gotten back to the album I was working on awhile ago wanting to finish it up I hope this week to start on some new projects. Also I finished the challenge layout from last week for the local scrapbook store and here are a few pictures one of the whole layout and a few close ups. 

This is the hand drawn tv I made which I love retro look of it and am trying to draw up a template to post if anyone wants to use it for a layout. So that is coming soon I hope. This is a super short post today as my keyboard is charging for my I pad and it isn't easy to working like this.

I also wanted to say thank you to everyone who stopped bye last week and commented I really appreciate everyone's kind words. I will try to get to as many blogs hopping around before work and have been busy as family is coming for a visit and lots to do before the arrive. Have a wonderful Wednesday to everyone and do what makes you happy😀🤗😀

WOYWW #368

Head over to our wonderful Lady Jen blog for more information and to join as she is running it while darling Julia is recovering from her surgery. It is so great to travel the world via Internet and see what  so many creative spaces and artists.

It is Wednesday and it is time to have a quick glimpse at my desk with things I have been doing. I would of liked to have finished more this weekend but things happened and didn't have the crafting days I wanted. But I guess that does happen......... 

Here is me my new challenge layout I am working on for the local scrapbook store. As soon as I saw the  ephemera and paper I thought of a T.V playing video games. So I wasn't sure how the television should look and decided to draw one out using a light wood grain paper like back in the day. I did fussy cut out from the scrap paper a few robots to fill in the empty space. You can see my hand made template in the left corner. The black letters I am using for the title which I haven't decided on yet but  I need to get done before the end of the month. As soon as I have finished I will post the completed layout. 

Here is the other table I have been working at or bringing up the paper to sit at the kitchen table to be closer to the puppy and the back door until he is better house trained. I went to Micaels and picked up  another large photo case holder to I could hold all the little pieces ready to use. in the right corner I have started stamping out and cutting a few sets of the Tim Hotlz mini bird set for my sister not sure I will have enough time to finish it before Canada post strikes crossing fingers they don't. I am glad my sister birthday parcel arrived as it isn't late but excited she got it as it has been eight years since we last where in the same room together, but glad she liked everything. To the right is the pile of paper I still plan to fussy cut out. 

I did finish something this week these paper camera paper clips which where cut out on my Cricut some time ago and found them in my to finish bin I forgot about. So I glued them to paper clips and added them into my mini album book I made just after last year from a tutorial on line from a video on you tube (couldn't find the video to in how to make the book will look it down if anyone wants to make one for themselves) will still look for it but I can hear a thunder storm rolling in again and had problems last week with the rain storms we had losing internet at times. 

Want to also say thank you to everyone who visited and commented last week. Have a spectacular week everyone and thank you for stopping to take a peek.

WOYWW #367

Here it is already Wednesday and it is time to see what I have been doing on my desk. Julia the creator of this magical Wednesday is taking a break from surgery and recovering at home but Lady Jan has been hosting it to keep the weeks rolling forward and the link is ........
For more info to our dear Julia who started this her site is

For what you stopped by for my desk and not much as you can see is happening....

I put aside the mini album which is waiting to be finished but I Have cleaned up some of that bomb explosion I had last week and am almost finished. Yippie 🙃🙂🙃🙂🙃🙂 The biggest thing I did finish is off in the mail heading to my sister is here birthday box of goodies. The only real thing was after watching a few fun tutorials on you tube and surfing Pinterest I ransacked my paper to find sheets I can cut apart and make my own ephemera. So I can take a few sheets and sit, cut and maybe watch a movie since I don't have a television downstairs makes the time pass. I took a quick snap of some paper I found that seems like it will work.


I did receive a few ATC in the mail and they are stunning on the top right is Cindy's to the top left is Julia's and at the bottom in Angela's. Thank you so much ladies for swapping with me I so love your cards and it was great to get mail. I am going to hang another display string to hang them up on the wall.

Thank you also to everyone last week who stopped by and commented and other good news my two furry babies are finally feeling better and they are back to there playful selves. Have a wonderful day and do what makes you HAPPY!😎

WOYWW #366

I can not believe it is Wednesday already and you know what that means....desk hopping time.
Head over to Jan sites to where she is hosting while Julia is recovering from surgery.
If you would like to hop over to Julia's and I am wishing her all the best thought this time.
Julia's blog

I can not believe that it is Wednesday already as last week seemed to be busy with both my dogs getting sick and our little new puppy isn't 100% better yet so my time has been with them.

Not much from last week as I am still working on finishing up the mini album I started. To the left I am using recollections distressed colour paper and the spray bottle above is vellum adhesive. I still have out the mini Prima dolls which I haven't found a home for since making my ATC for the WOYWW anniversary swap and in the clear plastic photo container are the bits and pieces that match the paper collection so they stay in one place without getting lost. The rest of my room looks like a bomb went off in it as I am finishing up my sisters birthday box and have boxes of my destash craft items I need time to post up for sale.  Oh and the box of tea that has been sitting on top of one of my ink pad storage for pocket letters that I have put aside and hope to get back to and finish up.

Time to try and get around to as many desks as I can and would like to say thank you to everyone who took the time to stop and leave me such great comments. Have a wonderful day😎
