WOYWW #176

Hey, lookit me! Getting back in on the WOYWW action, finally! Thanks Julia for hostessing. Not much happening on my workspace, though...but here are the pics:
General mayhem, huh? Yah. I've no real excuse, I just haven't felt like I've had time to get any crafting done, ya know? I'm still not unpacked from our recent trip, for one thing. And schoolwork has been piling up. But I did get this far on a card:
This is one of my new Sizzix embossing folders and I'm looking forward to making some Thanksgiving cards with it. I plan to embellish it some more and get some real color onto the leaves, then use it as the focal piece on a card front. Anyways, thanks for the read and any comments...hope everyone has a lovely week. :)

    1. The folder is great, huh? I'm actually only going to use it for Thanksgiving, since I don't keep Halloween personally. Hope you're having a great day, too! :)

    1. Sandy your link isn't working for me! :(
      But thanks for thinking it doesn't look too mayhemish. lol :) The distress ink labeling is pretty simple, just sticker paper cut in strips, inked and slapped on.

    1. Ali, I got it at Hobby Lobby and it's made by Sizzix, simply called the Fall set. You can find it online at places like scrapbook.com, not that I am affiliated with them or anything. If you don't have a Hobby Lobby nearby you can order it online at hobbylobby.com and use the 40% off coupon on it. Hope this helps! :)

  16. I don't know what everyone is going on-and-on about your desk for when that card looks awesome so far! Maybe it's because I love the Fall and Thanksgiving!!

    1. Probably! We're getting excited for some good turkey eating, aren't we?! :) But mostly they are going on-and-on because that's the point of WOYWW...you get to see everyone's desktop, the good, the bad, and the truly disastrous! And don't you know mine usually falls into that last category? lol :) So, it wasn't too bad this week, actually. You should check out some of my other posts labeled WOYWW...heehe...but, since you've seen the whole of the room, just seeing the desktop may not do much for you! lol

  17. I was admiring that embossing folder the other day. I didn't get it because although I like the look of cards made with embossing folders when I actually make on myself it feels naked. So I'll just admire yours instead. Look at all that yummy glitter glue off to the side!

    Bummer about your test score. My test was open book so in theory you should get everything right, right? We'll see. It took a long time to hunt down all those answers. This is when being a fast reader is a curse. It means less reading comprehension in the long run.

    Thanks for your kind kitty words and yes, cancer still sucks!

    1. That is so weird! I mean about your reading comprehension...it's supposed to improve when you speed read, unless you are just skipping over the text and considering that speed reading??? *shakes finger at the naughty girl* lol
      Anyways, I love open book tests. I can use the back of the book like no other! I am so thankful for the subject and name indices. :)
      You're welcome and yes, cancer still sucks! (Hugs)

    1. Yes, you do spy new stamps! The local Hobby Lobby got some new stuff in a few weeks ago at just the perfect time. A dear dear lady I know had given me a generous gift card and so you see some of my new toys she helped me get! I haven't gotten to play with most of it yet, can't seem to find the time! Now, if only there was a gift certificate for more time. lol :)
