WOYWW 299 I Am Back.

 Col. 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God  and the Father, by him. 

 Did you miss me?  My husband took me to Hawaii for a week to celebrate the fact that he proposed to me 49 years ago on Valentine's Day.  We had a wonderful Valentine week in Kauai!  We kayaked, hiked, and swam in the ocean, and just relaxed listenning to the waves.  I tried to upload the view of the ocean and palms on my background, but Blogger said my photo was too large.  I tried to resize it, but it still said too large.  But I will include some photos at the end of my post.  I don't want you to miss seeing the beautiful scenery that we saw for a whole week!
 
    I have done several cards since I came back.  My craft area was so nice and clean when I came back, but now it looks the same, a mess!  I also worked a SU! booth with my SU! Demo at our local Women's Fair for seven hours on Saturday.

I am on the left!
                                                                                     
We had fun helping ladies do Make & Takes.




Why am I showing you my desk? Because I am taking part in What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, sponsored by Julia at Stamping Ground.

My craft area as of last night with two of the cards I made this week.  I love using my Color Coach!  


I didn't want to come back from 80s and this view to teens and snow!

Love Kauai!

A Selfie!

Thank you for stopping by. Happy WOYWW!   Leave your number and I will stop by to see you!

Card Making, Scrapbooking, Memory Verses & WOYWW 296

 Col. 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God  and the Father, by him. 


What?  Another week gone by?  Happy What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday!  So, as part of this desk hop of Julia's at Stamping Ground, I am showing you what my desk looked last night. I was making kits and getting ready for card making for our Encouragement Ministry Wednesday after Bible Study.  Last week one of the dear ladies came over and we worked together on two die cutting machines, cutting dies of our Bible verses.  Last night  I made up kits for all the different cards.  Now that is all packed up to take with me this morning.

Then I am showing you a new addition to my craft room.  Hubby put together this desk that was my Mom's.  Don't know what I am going to use it for, but it already has the top surface full! LOL  

There is my  scrap page for my February Scraplift Challenge on Splitcoast Stamper.  If you are a scrapbooker, come join us!  Last month we had 16 entries.  No prizes, just fun!

Last there are photos of my memory verse project.  I memorized Col. 3:16-17 when I was participating in Busy Mama's 31 day Bible study of Col. 3. This was a wonderful study, and I love these verses and hope to truly apply them to my life. I am doing pages of my verses and putting them in this flip frame, so I can keep them on my desk handy and  in view.  I put these verses on Gelli print backgrounds that I had prevously done.











Thank you for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Wednesday.

WOYWW 295

 Col. 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God  and the Father, by him. 

Good morning!  It is suppose to be beautiful here today, and I am looking forward to getting outside and walking!  I have been doing my walking on a track at the YMCA this winter, and am ready for Spring! I know it is only January, but we have had a couple of beautiful days to tease us.

I took a photo of my desk when I finished making a card for our Tea Pot Tuesday Challenge on Splitcoast Stamper. I took it last night so I could clean it up as today a friend is coming home with me from church after Bible study to cut out sentiments and verses on die cuts, so we can take them to church next Wednesday for our ladies to use when making cards for our Encouragement Ministry after Bible study.  We usually have about a dozen or so that stay after Bible study and make cards, and usually we get about 30 cards made.  Some will do cards assembly line style, while others just create on  their own.  You would be surprised what these ladies can create,  and they are not stampers or card makers, like some of us who are obsessed with this paper crafting business!  So here is a photo of my desk, because  that is what we do on What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday.  We share peeks of our desks for Julia's desk hop on Stamping Ground. 

So you can see the sponges and ink pads I used to make my card.  I used my Birch Tree stencil for the first time.  And inked up Life in the Forest stamp set  for the first time.







And below is a photo of a card I made for my brother-in-law for his retirement.  I used another Lili of the Valley image this week. The plaid Decorative Paper is from a We R Memory Makers 6x6 pad and the orange paper is Bo Bunny, just paper from my stash!  I did stitching on it.  I like how  stitching looks on cards, just too lazy to do it most of the time.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes SU! mounted with buttons from my stash. I colored the image with Copics, and did paper piercing.  I made this card to honor our Featured Stamper this week on Splitcoast Stamper,.


Thank you for stopping by this week, have a great Wednesday!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 294

   Col. 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.


Good morning everyone!  Missed you last week.  You would think that I could manage one Blog post a week, but apparently not!  So I have been crafting quite a bit in the new year.  In fact I am trying to use forgotten stamps in 2015. One of the cards I am currently working on is an old SU! image.  In fact I just water colored the image, just don't know what I am doing next.  But of course I am using new stamps too.  Right now I am trying to design a birthday card for a gentleman who plays a lot of golf.  I have a new image from Lili of the Valley, that I am planing to use.  Their images are so cute, They are a new favorite.  And of course I have a scrap page on my desk too.  For the first time I have joined the Progressive Scrapbook Challenge on Splitoast Stamper. So, I am working on Task # 3 right now.  Anyway, that is what is going on in my craft area!  Just showing my desk along with all the rest of the deskers participating in Julia's WOYWW at Stamping Ground.




Below is a  card I made for my wonderful Grandson with a Lili of the Valley image!  I used SU! DP and a combination of Copics and Blendabilities. I used numbers from my stash and one of my homemade enamel dots.


Also, below, is a photo of the wonderful handmade Christmas cards I received from my crafting friends.  They are all so wonderful, I  wanted to share them.



Thank you for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Wednesday! :)

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 292

     Col. 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.


          I have tried to think ahead of what I might say on my first Blog post of 2015, but still haven't decided how I might begin my Blog year. So, as usual will just show you  my desk as part of Julia's Stamping Ground's World Wide Desk Hop or known better as WOYWW.  I have been scrapbooking. In fact I am the new hostess for the Splitcoast Stamper Scraplift Challenge.  What is a scraplift?  You are inspired by another scrappers page, and you lift it!  Each month I will issue a challenge for the scrapper to lift a page from a certain gallery, or from a certain scrapper.  This month we looked at last year's January gallery for our inspiration.  Come join us if you are a scrapper.
          Here is what my desk looks like this morning!  It doesn't matter how much space we have.  The more we have the more we use!


I haaven't even thrown away scraps from Christmas crafting!

I thought I would show you another view.

Have a wonderful week!  Thank you for stopping by.

What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday 291

    I am trying to reorganize for the new year, so first my desk must be a mess.  Then it really will become more organized.  Right now I am labeling some boxes for stamps that have been just loose in a drawer. So my label maker is out on my desk as well as all the little scraps. If you look closely you can even see one of my Christmas gifts.  I had ask for a deck chair for my iPad, you know one like on Julia's desk?  She was an enabler!  Sh! Don't tell her I told you!
    Also below are photos I promised of my finished gift calendars.  I made 15 sets of them.  Thank you for stopping by.  Here is a link to Julia's Stamping Ground.  She is our hostess for this World Wid Desk Hop!  Happy New Year!
