WOYWW #378

It's Wednesday and it is time to see what has landed on my desk in the since last week. 

This is my desk late Tuesday night and yes I did tidy it a bit as I seemly lost my ruler under piles of paper and goodies. 

I am in a race to finish the last of the summer challenge layouts and I have finished 5 in the last 48 hours with one left to do later Wednesday afternoon. Glad I didn't take a picture of the floor as there is a ton of scrap paper that is laying everywhere since my daughter and me have been working on our happy planners and then doing the layouts.  On the desk is a bowl of ice cream my DH gave me since I have lost my voice and when I talk sounds like a frog. In the top left corner is my paper collection from photo play the happy glamper and to the far right I found 100 crayola pencil crayons, more so to practice my coloring with before I get a better set. I once again put away the stuff I picked up last week on our trip to Edmonton for my brother in law so I guess no peeking at that. The test went well for him and the doctors are now deciding to do a by pass soon and cross there fingers that will help, but he is at home resting from it all and back to waiting for the doctors to pick a date. 

Here is a quick shot of all the layouts to date and if you notice to the right is my ATG gun in a homemade stand from wood blocks and elastic bands and I love it no more hunting for it under paper or it sticking to where it shouldn't. Okay a few close up of the 5 layouts...

Well that's about it as this week is still rolling in to crazy tomorrow I get my car back from the shop, school starts for my youngest on Thrusday and it feels like winter so I will be in a race to get everything done outside before the first snow fall and I am crossing my fingers, knocking on wood it doesn't come soon but we do have heat on its getting that chill in the air.

Thank you to everyone last week for visiting and leaving me such beautiful comments to read. I am off to see what everyone else has been up to. Have a fantastic Wednesday and thanks for visiting today.

WOYWW #377

 Well boy has time really flowing by for me and I am back from a short break for WOYWW. Head over to our wonderful Julia's site who created all this amazing desk hopping.

Let me start out by saying my husband and I decided to go on a 9 day trip to Kelowna, British Columbia to visit his family, flight was booked and we where off in less then 24 hours the last week of July til til first week of August. It was just a vacation for the two of us and left our children at home but let me say their 20, 18 and almost 17 now and ground rules where laid down firm. We have great girls to.......and they where all fine and so house.

So what have I been up to lately......

Here is an over look of my work space and yes it has been all tidied and cleaned up as my oldest daughter spilled her coffee and it seemly went over both tables and at that time you could not see either table as it has been a dumping ground with things I have purchased and been making. I am glad to say after a month I have put it all away.

Here is a close up of my new Happy Planner I picked up and right beside it is a large pile of printed stickers. I do not have my Cricut hocked up to the craft room so I am fussy cutting them all out and yes it seems crazy to print out so many at once but we are using my husbands printer due to all the colour cartridges he has for his.......he thought he needed colour but not as many as he goes though black so much more with all the documents at work. So bonus for me I have only used one full one and have so many more to go.

Here is the other table with the album in the top I just have to put a few photo matts in and decorate the cover. The pen and glue runner is for my dear sister in law Josie who loved the album when they came for a visit in earlier July. So I am going to finish it all up and send it in the mail soon. The album is a new one I made as soon as we got back from vacation just had to play with paper and glue as it had been so long. I am just adding the photo mats and a bit of decorating and this one will be done. 

Also I did finish another one of my summer layouts for the local stores challenge and 6 left to do by the end of August....not sure I will make it but I am loving the ones I have made and have a few others on the go but did loss a few things due to the coffee spill and it really isn't to noticeable on this layout as I did my best to clean it up.

Just want to say thank you to everyone who is visiting and leaves me such wonderful comments as it trully brightens my day.  I am going to try my best today to hop around to as many desks as I can before we leave to Edmonton as my husband and I are taking his brother for heart surgery as it is a drive to get there and he has to be there for Thursday early morning. We're back to Friday afternoon and then we are leaving next week down to Calgary for business meeting for his company. So I will do my best to get around and to everyone have a fantastic week.

Hugs ~Anne 😎
