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.
