WOYWW #442

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/p/what-is-woyww.html  and all will be revealed! 

Hello everyone! As we are getting colder and colder, our friends in Oz are getting warmer! Just a bit of jealousy there. . . we had our first snowfall this week.


 it's all gone now, but I'm sure it will be back!

Here is my desk this morning:
 A bit of a mess, as I am trying to make Christmas cards! I don't have a lot to make, I have made about 12 so far, of about 21. So not too bad! My favourite Santa stamp is there, I just find him so happy and joyous!
 Here is my card stash so far. Not much to look at!



Here is an "assemblage" I made last week, I didn't know where it was going until it decided to be an Advent Calendar! 
 All the extra numbers are velcroed to the back and sides. I used a 99 cent wooden plaque I found at a thrift store as the base, and the word on top is made from the woodmounts of my scrabble stamps!
  
I have been wanting to get a companion for Inky, and have fallen in love with "Pinot" (noir!) at our local Cat Cafe, and I hope to adopt her in a few weeks, once we are home for the winter. Hopefully no one else will get her before we do! She is also pure black and tiny, just like Inky! Hopefully they will get along. She came right up to me and snuggled and purred - she didn't do that with anyone else that was there!


Here is Inky, right after discovering her world was now white.

 She looks a little disgusted to me! But now that it has all melted away, she's back outside for short bursts, as it is still pretty cold! Pretty soon, she will once again, be an indoor cat.

Have a great week everyone! I will visit everyone as I have time, will visit all who comment (thank you!) and all who's number ends in the same as mine, and all who I have time for after that. 

And. . . Happy Turkey Day to all our American friends! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

WOYWW #441

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/p/what-is-woyww.html  and all will be revealed!  

Hello! I have to work on Wednesday, early, so I'm writing this Tuesday night, and it will be short and sweet!

Here was my desk on Monday afternoon:

 The ideas going through my head had to come out! I saw , in a group on FB, a way to use my discarded wood mounts! 

  


This one I used the image on the wood mount as a part of the design! I'm not sure what to call these- stand alone Christmas decorations? Maybe you have some ideas?
 
 I cleaned up the big mess, and here is my desk today (Tuesday)

Finally making some Christmas cards! I made a design I liked, and am now making a set of ten the same. Also started a new Christmas decoration (plaque?) using a wooden picture I found at a thrift store for 99 cents. I have ordered the Tim Holtz Christmas cut out people, so may wait for them to arrive (if I can) to finish this!

So that's it for me today. Inky is upstairs sleeping on the warm waterbed (it has gotten very cold in the last few days!) but I'm sure she would say "hello" if she could! I will try and visit everyone I can next week, those ending in my number, those who comment, and hopefully a few more! Have a wonderful week!

WOYWW #440

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/p/what-is-woyww.html  and all will be revealed!  

Greetings everyone! I have nothing to show this week. I have been busy working and recovering from work, hardly going into my stamping room at all this week. I will hopefully get in there this week, as I have several ideas floating around! Here is my desk this morning:


 Nothing much to see here except a Michael's bag! And here is what's inside: more glue for my unmounting project, and the Tim Holtz pile of cut out people.



I am looking forward to working with the cut out people, I've wanted this for awhile, felt that after all that work, I deserved it! So hopefully I can show you next week what's floating around in my head this week!

So here's my November garden instead. A bit of a sorry sight, but a few interesting things: 


Still some flowers blooming! Impatiens and Marigolds!
The beautiful red berries on our Crab Apple tree!
 



My geraniums aren't still blooming, but the pot still looks good!




 I have two kinds of Hydrangeas, one beside the other, but they look very different today! This one looks terrible,

While this one looks very pretty!




Well, hopefully I will have more art to show next week, and maybe even some Christmas Cards (we can only hope!).

Here is Inky saying "hello" and "Treat time please!" So I'm off to deliver treats! 



I will visit as many people as I can, anyone who has my ending # in their ending number, and anyone who comments on my post. I value all your comments and look forward to reading them!
I wish everyone an awesome week!

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/p/what-is-woyww.html  and all will be revealed!  

Happy November! I guess I better start thinking about Christmas cards! It is a rainy chilly November day here today, even Inky doesn't want to go out today!



Here's my desk this morning, not too exciting!



I had to work last night - Halloween night - but we got to dress up - I went as a gypsy!


 Here is my last week's journal page, and then I played with my Artisto App!



 So much fun!

Anyway, short and sweet today, must run off to the gym this afternoon! Hope you all have a great week, I will visit as many as I can, those with the same ending number as me, and those who comment on my blog, and maybe even a few more! I've been working a lot lately - kind of cuts into my playtime!

Another very busy day, late getting to my blog! It has started to cool down a little bit here in Eastern Ontario, but last night we were walking around in T-shirts still! Crazy weather! It is often very cold by this time, with frosts!

Here is my desk this morning. Not a lot different from last week's as I haven't had a lot of time to dedicate to my journal, but I did get a little bit done to it. Hopefully I will have more time this week!




Playing with my gelli plate! Starting to get the hang of it! Lots more to learn though!

We had our 33rd wedding Anniversary last Friday - here's the card I made for hubby!





Also some sketching: 

 This is my view, sitting in bed watching TV, of the wall in front of me. The bird is part of the wooden lamp. 

We had a lovely "fakesgiving", our version of a late Thanksgiving when everyone could get together! And the next day we went for a drive.



 Amazingly, we were able to have our apps on the porch!!


Appetizers!
 
My Mom and Step-Dad
 
 Spicy Moroccan Peanut Butter-Tomato Soup!

My DD, me, and my niece in the background! (she made the delicious soup!)


Sketching on the dock
The 3 of us!


Well that's it for today, a hearty "meow" from Inky (no she did not drink the wine!) - she's only allowed on the table when there is no one at the table, in case you were wondering!


I hope everyone has a great week ahead, sorry if I can't get to everyone these days, my time seems to be limited! I will certainly get back to those who leave a comment, and to all whose number includes an 9, since I will be #29!

WOYWW #437

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/p/what-is-woyww.html  and all will be revealed!  

I'm very late today, just got off my shift at work (which is going better!). We are going to be celebrating our Thanksgiving on the weekend, as DD was in California during the real Thanksgiving weekend. It will be a short post this week, as I haven't had a lot of time to do very much!  

 My desk this morning, started a new page last night. Also made a birthday card for a mother of a friend who is turning 99!

 
 And last week's journal page, with my favourite "Artisto App" rendition of it! I was hoping the letters looked like bones!

 



Beautiful, sunny, very warm October day - Inky is nowhere to be seen! I don't blame her. . .! She'll come by later when I'm sitting on the porch with my wine!
 



Well that's all for me today, probably won't get around to visiting until tomorrow! Have a great week everyone!
