Does this still count...? :) WOYWW #230

So, it's not actually Wednesday anymore but I'ma still link up for the What's on your workdesk Wednesday, hostessed by the oober fab Julia over at Stamping Grounds. This week I have been making something very special for someone amazingly special...I feel privileged to have been able to do this for her and she knows who she is! :) It is not yet complete but these are the pics I got for now for you! Enjoy...:)
That's how the book started...and the beginning of the mess, as well...
This next piece is the spine piece with all the laces and ribbons sewn on...
Rough idea of finished piece, back cover on's really just more mess...
Getting closer to the final product...and I tidied...the buttons! lol
Bonus shot, cause I know you knew there was a giant pile of stuff shoved off to the left! :)
Will finish this and deliver it tomorrow...hope everyone is having a wonderful week and have a great weekend, too! :)

WOYWW #229...still! :)

Hey, I made it! :) I do miss getting around to visit all you fabulous crafters out there...if not because of how awesome you are then at least because of how your desks are always almost as messy as mine! :) Why would I go looky or show off my own desk? Simple. 'Cause I can. ;) Thanks to the super wonderful Julia over at Stamping Ground, where you can go find out what this WOYWW thing is all about and see more desks with creative happenings...happening. :) So, here's the pics...
Ya, not much happenin'...getting ready to make at least 4 cards though and do some is a card I made awhile back...the paper was partially patterned and then I stamped and embossed and diecut the hot air balloon, applied the washi tape and just generally had fun... :)
So, this is a bonus shot of the jewelry lots out a couple months ago (!) and then didn't make snot...except for a big mess! :) Nothing new there, right? lol
But, hey! Here's some roses for y'all! :) Arranged these today even...and posted! What?!
You can call me Super Woman. ;)
Now I have to get this up and linked and find out what some of you real Super Women have been up to in your crafty spaces...hope everyone is having an amazing day! :)

P.S. Did I ever show y'all how much my pup is lovin' our new loveseat?
Pretty cush, huh? ;) And isn't he totally posing?! Alright, hugs for you all! :)

WOYWW #227

For all those who were curious last week, and came over thanks to WOYWW hostessed by the lovely Julia at Stamping Ground, here's what was in the bags! And the paper stack that was sitting on the desk is fanned out for a little better view. Just for your info, because I am NOT sponsored, here are links with store names of where items were purchased; online at Two Peas In a Bucket and Joann's and Oh! My Crafts and in-stores at Hobby Lobby and Michael's and the Dollar Tree.
Too stinkin' cute, right? :)
The whole reason I had to have this particular paper pad...My dear! ;)
Can't wait to make Mother's Day cards, already and how cute are those owls?! :) Sorry if any shots are blurry, I was trying to get as much into each pic as I could so I wouldn't have to upload a bajillion pics, if you know what I mean! Thanks for stopping by to see what my annual splurge netted and hopefully it will inspire you to save up and take the splash too! (No one sponsors me, but seriously, they should, right?! lol) :) Most of these were super deals, like the paper pad discounted almost 70%, and clearance or discontinued items so if you love something, but can't find it, I am sorry about that, but you can still be happy for me, right? :) Hope everyone has a super fab WOYWW! :)

Back for WOYWW #226

It'll be brief but finally going to make it in! For what? What's on your workdesk Wednesday, all thanks to the super fab Julia over at Stamping Ground. So here's some pics:
Yah, it's a disaster! I'm happy with how that corner is progressing, though. The rest of the mess...well, it was time for my annual splurge. :) I'll have more pics next week, if I make it back of what is in the bags, so stay tuned and thanks for stopping by this week. Have a great one!

Spare time! If anyone finds it please return it to me already, like yesterday. :) I am taking a minute to update since it will probably be yet another Wednesday before I can join WOYWW again and so, to anyone who is wondering where I am, I am at home. Studying. And otherwise completely losing all track of time! Hope everyone is doing very well, until next time, take care! :)

WOYWW #220

The saga continues! Last night I had to move the dog cage/bed as it stuck out too far and the way I had to sit was making my back ache, can't have that! So I moved things around under the desk and added a shelf to the ongoing craft room will serve as another crafting surface actually, since I put it level with my desk, there on the left under the clock, see? (And yes, it was 1:15 a.m. when I took this pic! But then I was too tired to join up before going to bed.) Speaking of desks, thanks to the ever lovely and wonderful Julia over at Stamping Ground, here's mine:
I don't like that tangle of cords back there by the TV, but what shall I do about it? Hmm. That little shelf is turning out to be very handy, so glad I know how to run a power drill and find least in my walls if not in my life! lol ;) And do you see I still have room left for more stuff on my desk?! The pegboard to the left of the TH inks is still empty and under the little shelf there is empty, too. But my washi tape spinner is totally full and I have 15 tapes coming on a slow boat from China...first world problems, right? Here is a close-up of the right side of my desk. See my new Disney paper? Gonna make some simple cards for boys...while enjoying my raspberry lemonade. :)
Here are the cards I made out of my new Hello Kitty! paper. Very simple as they are for little girls and I couldn't have buttons or whatnot on there that they might remove and choke on. You know kids. My son wasn't like that when he was little, but I know other kids can be like that so safety first, right? :)
I'm thinking I will sell them in packages of like 3 or 4 or something or just give them to that thing for Soldiers...Operation Write Home or something? That's also why I didn't add glitter or any other bling, like I normally the glitter! :)
Hobby Lobby is the source for the new papers, by the way, and they are on sale 50% off this week, too. You're welcome! ;) Enjoy the WOYWW everyone and thanks for stopping by!

WOYWW #219

Hmmm, a desk...where did I put that thing?! Awww, I know and why would I want to show it off? It's all thanks to Julia over at Stamping Ground! :) Here are several shots, now that I am a little more settled in:
View to the left and the next is panning to the right...
My dog had to have his bed so I rearranged everything under the desk to make room for him. Yes, he is a little spoiled. :) But it makes a handy surface too! ;) Continuing to pan to the left:
And the next shot is walking into the paper section:
Here is the fabric section, almost filled up...
Here is all I got done craft-wise. Yep. Slow week, was still very busy rearranging and organizing.
Last shot, promise! :) I guess I did get this stamp made, from fun foam or thin foam, and stamped it in dark blue to see how it looked...pretty good actually. I will end up use it, I'm sure.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! :)

WOYWW #218

Today's post is thanks to Julia at Stamping Ground for hostessing this fabulous blog hop and my sister. My sister?! Hey, I have a quick question for you...what do you get when your sister has the brilliant idea to switch your craft room with your bedroom, since your bedroom is bigger and your craft room is, um, overflowing? You get this:
An almost emptied craft room freshly painted "White Chocolate"...that's not so bad you say? Try this then:
And another angle...
That is almost all my craft stuff exploded into my former bedroom...but the mess doesn't stop there!
This is from the doorway into my bathroom...and that was with the headboard out of there! My headboard is an antique fireplace surround thingy...cannot remember at the moment what those are called but it took up the space in the left of this picture making getting into the bathroom a squeeze. :) There's more mess though...
Part of my living room, there is a couch under there somewhere! And what else was(and STILL is) in the living room?
That's right! My bed, sans headboard, and completely disheveled as the dog and boy discovered it's quite the comfy sitting and napping spot. Well, as if that wasn't traumatizing enough, I hated all the crafty stuff in my former bedroom because there wasn't enough wall space(two doors, large long closet, 3 windows-one with an AC unit in it) for everything to go back up on shelves and be organized like I like it. So guess what we did? Yep. Switched it back! But I did take the opportunity to rearrange things...
I've sprung a window in the middle of my desk now! :) This is the view when I walk into the papercrafting space. The next picture is once I am fully in and looking to the left of where I sit to craft now.
 And here is a wider shot of the right side of the desk...
Here is a shot from the left side looking rightwards...and the card I made last night, still unfinished. :)
I started making the card because I figured I would play around and get things where I want them as I craft and the best way to do that is, well, to make something! :) Well, I hope you enjoyed the photos of before, after and especially during, and I also hope you never have this experience yourself! It's exhausting! :)

WOYWW #217

Just my desk this week...but if you want to see what I made when I made the mess then check out my previous post. :)
Oh, why show you my desk? Because that's the name of this game! :) Ask Julia at Stamping Ground all about it and see lots more desks...go on, it's fun! :) A few are even messier than mine! :)
And now you want to know where my desk is, huh? lol It's under there. Promise! :)
Got a melt pot this week, still haven't played with it yet. Please tell me your favorite thing to do with it in the comments, would you? Thanks! Have a great WOYWW and week everyone! :)
