WOYWW 321 and Beatrix Potter

   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.


   It is Wednesday again! And that means it is time for What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday!  I cannot believe how quickly time passes.  In retirement, it even goes quicker!
I don't know, maybe it is because I am having so much fun or am so busy.  It doesn't seem like I am that busy!  But here it is again, WOYWW!  Some of the things I have done since I last posted is sort through stamped images, scraps of papers, and die cuts.  I am trying to organize them for our upcoming DTGD Challenges.  We will have maybe up to  7 challenges a day for a whole week! I even colored a couple of images, so they would be done, if I need them.  That is when I found out some of my Copics are dried out.  I don't even use them that often!  So I am wondering what to do.  It seems like it would be cheaper to buy new ones with a coupon at a local store, than to send off for refills and pay shipping.  If I even need to do that!  Maybe I will just live with the ones I have.  I have never been into them as big as some are.  I like to water color and to use gelatos and chalks, also.  What do you think:?

      I also made a card for our Tickle a Teapotter Challenge this week on Splitcoast Stamper. I used an old stamp set for the main image (one that I had intended to sell, but now will keep) Tea For Two, and then two other newer stamp sets for the sentiment and label, Tea Shoppe, and Layered Labels, all Stampin' Up! sets.  Our challenge was to honor Beatrix Potter.  So, my card is supposed to be  Flopsy and Mopsy. It was a fun challenge.  I stitched one of the panels under the Copic colored image and put lace under the sentiment.  I used retired Baja Breeze, my favorite SU! color,  card stock as well as Whisper White.


My desk this morning.
I will send this to another Teapotter as a tickle. 

It was nice of you to stop by.  Be sure and stop by Julia's Stamping Ground and see the rest of the deskers.  I will try to get by and see as many of the deskers as I can. Right now, I am posting this at 1:00 a.m. on wednesday morning, and am headed to bed!  :)

What's on your work desk? Wednesday 320 (Wednesday evening)

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.

Hello fellow deskers.  I forgot it was Wednesday!  I have been scrapping tonight, and realized it was past time for WOYWW!  I completely missed last week.  So, anyway, here is a quick photo of my desk and one of the LO I just finished for Ann's Stash Buster Challenge on Splitcoast Stamper. We were suppose to include pre-made flowers, brads and baker's twine.

Still working on scrapping our British Isles cruise! 
Sometimes it is hard to choose what papers I will use.  I get it all out and end up with a big stack!

 This week-end I watched a lot of videos that were part of #LoveSummerArt event.  Result:
I did some more pages in my Mixed Media Art Journal.  Used my H20s, that I have never used before, and also Texture Paste, and stencils, also 3D-Stmpel Farbe ( a 3D Stamp Paint)  Really, just played in my craft room!






Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure and check out the other deskers at WOYWW at Julia's Stamping Ground.

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 318 Not Much!

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.


Hello everyone!  As you can see, nothing is going on at my desk today.  In fact I am not even there. I cleaned it all up before I left so my husband wouldn't trip over tools and paper piles when he goes into that room, while I am gone.  I took these photos before I left, so when I got to my Daughter's I could post them on my Blog.  Thank you to Alli H for telling me about this  program to do a photo collage, and to my Grandson, my tech for helping me to download the program and do the photo collage.  Also, he helped me change the background photo on my Blog!  That photo is from when we went to Hawaii. What would I do without my Grandson.  He is even the one that helped me start my Blog two years ago.
My fairly cleaned craft room


Happy WOYWW!  I will try to visit all of you when I am not visiting with my daughter and her family.  If you are wondering why I am showing you photos of my craft area, skip over to Julia's Stamping Ground and get all the details and even see more deskers!  Thanks for stopping by.

What's On Your Workdesk 316 Wednesday? and Scrapping

      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, fellow deskers!  I might get this posted earlier for a change.  So fun to visit you and I enjoy when you stop in to see my space and comment.  I have been trying to scrap a two page LO from my Brittish Isles trip, for two days now!  And today I might get it done! Hopefully it won't take me this long to do the whole album!   This is my  desk as it  has looked for the last two days.

 Another project I have been working on is trying to organize all my 12x12 papers.  On Pinterest I had pinned a video about how to organize your papers by putting together colored cardstock and prints that would match.  Whenever you would want to do a page you woud have the papers already together and not have to hunt.  Well, I think she had only about 50 papers she was working with, whereas I  have hundreds.  So one picture shows you my small start in this momunental endeavor.  Tell me, if you are a scrapbooker, have you attempted this process?  What do you think about doing it this way?


I seem to be stuck on getting this layout done.


I put 4-6 papers of like colors and patterns together in 12x12 page protectors.  A very small start to my huge stash!





















Thank you for stopping by!  If this WOYWW is new to you check out Julia's Stamping Ground  for all the details and to see some more desks.  It is really fun to hop around to all the desks and see what crafters are doing all over the worldl  Have a great week!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 315 & VSN Happy!

 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.

Wednesday is almost gone!  I missed last week and almost missed this week's!  I decided to go ahead and post anyway!  I am just showing you what I did this past week-end.  I participated in Splitcoast Stampers' Virtual Stamp Night, only it lasts a whole week.  We were to make each card in a hour or shorter,  The theme was Happy.  We had to make a shaker card, a card with a bee, a card using a stencil ,and one with a 50s theme,  just to name a few of the challenges. You can still play: VSN


These are the ten Happy cards I made for the VSN Challengtes. 

I embossed this one with Pool Party embossing powder and VersaMark ink.  I used a sentiment from a Inkadinkado clear stamp set, and cakes from SU! Quick & Easy.  The paper is TPC Studio (So Delish) and Pool Party by SU!  I used Spellbinders Tag dies, and square punch for the cakes. The Bakers Twine is  SU! Coastal Cabana.



So good of you to stop by.  If you want to see some more desks, just check over at Stamping Ground.  Have a great rest of the weeik!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 313

 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 afternoon!  There is not much going on craftwise here today.  But since we are showing our workdesks, here is a photo of all my space.  I need to clean off some of the surfaces before I begin to craft.  I did make a baby card yesterday and 13 scrap pages in May.  I will show you some of those pages below my space.  







If you want to visit some more desks drop by Julia's Stamping Ground.  You will learn all about this world wide Blog hop! Thanks for your visit and comments.  I am off to see you, now. Have a great Wednesday!

WOYWW Happy 6th Year Anniversary!

 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.
                                                



  Happy 6th Anniversary What's On Your Workdesk!  I haven't taken part for all that time, but already over two years! Hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and congratulate her!  She has provided us with this fabulous Blog Hop where we have met a lot of friends from all over the world.  We get to look at each other's desks and enable each other in our crafts.
   So here is my desk this morning.  I have been scrapping a lot in the month of May.  Virtual Scrapbook Night  on Splitcoast Stampers has been celebrating the whole month of May as National Scrapbook Month with 3or 4  challenges every week-end!  I have completed about 11 pages or so I think. Anyway, working on another one below.  I have my list of chalenges on my desk to mark off as I do them.  Also, this week I completed my first Pop-Up Book Card!  I am not good at scoring and cutting special cards, but did this one for about 4 different challenges on Splitcoast Stamper.  I will send this one to one our Teapotters, because we are doing something called Tickle a Teapotter!


My first Pop-Up Book Card


Thanks for stopping by and for your encouraging comments.  Oh, and Happy Anniversary!
