WOYWW #391

Ps. 107:1  O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

It is that time again! Time to show our craft desks. Stop over at Julia's Stamping Ground to see the rest of the deskers!  I have worked on several projects lately, so just decided to show you what my stamp off paper looks like that is on my work area. You can almost see proof of most of  the projects on there.  Short and sweet today!  Already been to the gym this morning, but haven't eaten breakfast yet!  Oh, alright, decided to show you cards I made, too.  But not showing my gift calendars I am working on until they are gifted!!! Have a wonderful day!


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope to stop by your space today, too, so leave your number.  Happy WOYWW!

Happy Thanksgiving! & WOYWW 390

Ps. 107:1  O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Good morning!  My desk is a mess today due to nothing working out as planned!  Do you have days like that?   Also, showing you a shot of two plastic organizer pieces I picked up for a couple of dollars at a store that was closing and selling their display cases etc.  I am uning one for envelopes and the other for anything that will fit in it.  It is three sided.  I find that if something is stored in a drawer, as neat and organized as that is, I forget to use it!  So put some things in this plastic display case so I will see it and use it!

Also, forgot to show you my birthday presents from a couple of weeks ago.  Some new Chameleon markers  and a Wash Tape storage/dispensor.  

Why am I showing all this to you?  Check out Julia's Stamping Ground and find out all about it, plus see many other bloggers desks from all over the world!

Messy, unfinished projects that didn't go as planned.  Also on left a few things I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby!

My new Washi tape organizer & dispenser on top left and on bottom right my new Chemeolon Markers.  Also on top by light you see an example of calendars I make every year for friends and family.

Picked up pamphlet holders at store closing  for envelopes and embossing powders & assorted items.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
Thank you for stopping by!  And for my American friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Feeling Thankful & WOYWW 389

Ps. 107:1  O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

I am feeling thankful this morning , that I woke up, that my husband is healthy enough to be playing golf today, and that I have a craft room full of crafty things!  I am kind of frustrated with myself, that a lot of times I complain.  Why do I do that when God has given me such a abundant life?  There, now I am whining again about whining!

I am here to show you what is going on in my craft room, because that is what we do on What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday.  Below are several shots of my desk and other parts of my room.  What is going on are several projects.  Not happy doing just one!  I am scrapbooking, making gift calendars, a card or two and if that wasn't enough, last night I began to unmount woodmounted stamps!  That makes them easier to use in the Misti! (Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented!)  I don't know how I stamped before having the Misti!

This doesn't look too bad, but this is the cleanest area! LOL

I got a ton of 12x12 paper at a craft show Saturday for a flat $10.00!  Some of it was even in color families or papers that would go together and in large ziplock bags.  I was even surprised to find chipboard letters, and stickers in all of it.

I even had to move "stuff" off my work space and put it on my cutting station!

It doesn't matter how much room, I have, I just cover it up!
That is what it looks like here.  I am off to see what you are all doing!  I am thankful for all of you!  Thank you for stopping by.  Happy WOYWW!

Scrapbooking & What's On Your Workdesk? Wedneday 388

Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Good Morning! It is Wednesday again! How does that happen?   I will show you a quick view of my desk, because that is what many bloggers around the world are doing today and  hooking up over at Julia's Stamping Ground!

I have been scrapping and making cards!  This doesn't look too bad, but not showing the floor or other parts of the room, which are messier.  I did accomplish some nice projects.  Below ia a layout I really am happy with.  I am hostess for the Monthly Scraplift Challenge on SplitcoastStamper, and my challenge this month was to incorporate mixed media on our scraplift.

I used  delli paper that  had  been used to get the  last bits of paint off the Gelli Plate.  
I used Tim Holtz Distressing ink (Vintage Photo) on edges of  all the papers, leaves, and  panel under photo.  I used a perforator to distress the panel under the photo.
I used SU! leaves thinlits for the leaves.  The base paper for the layout is KaiserCraft Secret Bird Society Collection and the scraps are from Authenque Genuine Collection.
 I added sequins for interest.    Since AnniePanda, (Joyce Ann) used a frame on her project, and that is who I scraplifted, I used this frame.  I found it in my stash and it is actually a rubber feeling file label.

That is it for today.  Thank you for stopping by!  Please leave a comment so I know you were here.  I can't wait to drop by and see what everyone is doing today.  Have a great Week!

Falliday Fest & What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 386

Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Good morning!

Oh, my goodness, I haven't posted for over a month!  How does that happen?  I have an excuse for two of the Wendsdays, because we took a 10 day cruise.  :)  Fun!  So without further ado, here is my desk today.  I have been doing challenges for the Falliday Fest at Splitcoast Stampers.  This one was for the Blue Christmas.

Here is a card I did for the Shaving Cream Stencil Tutorial Challenge.  I used the 6x6 Aspen Tree Stencil by TCW.  I applied shaving cream with drops of re-inkers.  I also used Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug EF under that.  I used Night of Navy and Soft Sky re-inkers and CS.  I think I used a drop of Watermelon Wonder re-inker, too. 
Here are a few photos from our cruise!

WOYWW 380 & 50th

Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Good morning!  How are all my crafty friends?  :)  I missed last week, I guess my excuse is it was our 50th wedding anniversary on the third and we went on a short get-a-way.  Would you believe we went back to where we went on our honeymoon?  We went back to the same restaurant, too.  We have the original ticket; it was $2.50 each.  This time for same thing as then, it was $16.00!  We had a delightful time!

First photo is of my desk for the What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, as we show our desks.  Check our hostess Julia's Stamping Ground to see what the rest of the deskers are doing.

I got a goodie envelope from my Stampin' Up! demo, Kelly, this week , just for ordering!
Beautiful Christmas and fun Halloween papers, ribbon, enamel dots, and the cutest little charm from the Christmas Trinkets. Best of all a sweet little note thanking me for my business!  Other items, some cut, fold, & tuck dies from Spellbinders that I picked up at Tuesday Morning.  A LOTV image I am going to color for a Christmas card.  Oh, and I tried using the brass stencils thru the Big Shot, didn't do anything  I must doing something wrong!  Well, you get an idea what is going on here.  Now, I must go see what you are doing!

Next is a photo of some of the gorgeous hand made cards for us and the other kind too.  I made the box and matching card for my husband. The card to the left of the box is from my BFF whose 50th was earlier this Summer.  She and I have known each other since 7th grade, (57 yrs.) She is 24 days older than me.  Just saying.  Thank you to my lovely friends for all your best wishes and cards! Oh, the background for the cards is a photo our son took and  had enlarged and put on wood for us.  It is on our mantle.  Of course the cards are in front of the statue of liberty and a ship in front of it. :)

Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments.  Off to see you!
