WOYWW #425

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!  

Somehow I screwed up and  people were sent to  a message that said there wasn't a blog post, obviously there is, so congratulations if you pressed "home". I didn't know how to fix it, hence the Lindart* which did nothing. Anyone else ever have this problem?


Hello all! I hope you are all having a lovely day! As we are all here to see desks, here's mine this morning:

 Still managing to keel it fairly clean! Here is the space behind me - things I need a lot, close by:


My chart for keeping track of gym days - so far so good!

This is the Birthday card I made for hubby last week - I am 2 years older than him for 6 months!


I'm almost finished my index cards-only 2 more to 100! I actually skipped 2 days this week due to stress I won't burden you with, so I only have 4 to share today:


 I needed some retail therapy due to said stress, so I bought myself some new Tim Holtz stamps! One is used on #98. You can see the stress on #97!

I was very lucky to be chosen for birthday candy from Nikki (http://graphixanddesign.blogspot.ca) who sent me a lovely package chock full of cool stuff! I used a paper from this stash on card #95, and have since made a "get well" card from the part I didn't use on the i-cad!. Thanks Nikki!



For those of you still here, some garden pics:
My perennials are looking a bit shabby today, but there are some blooms to come! 




The Hostas are blooming! 


And some teeny tiny cherry tomatoes are on the vine!



Well, that's it for today, Inky says hello!

WOYWW #424

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 fellow deskers! These Wednesdays come by so quickly, don't they? I'm getting a bit of a late start today, hubby's birthday is today, and I had to get all his birthday goodies sorted, made, and wrapped this morning! As usual, I forgot to take a pic of his card before sealing it up in an envelope, so that will have to wait until next week.

My desk this morning before cardmaking:


The checklist you see on the desk  is a goal that I set for myself, to go to the gym for 30 days, 3 times a week, before deciding to keep or get rid of my gym membership. As you can see, I've gone 2 times so far, today will be day 3

I am almost done with my 100 day project, to make an index card every day for 100 days -  I'm up to 94! 



and a journal page:

 
 The sad news today, is that our lovely 18 year old Penny passed away last Thursday morning. She had a long and happy life, and she went peacefully. Inky is a bit sad, going to the places where Penny usually sat or slept, not really knowing where she has gone to. Quite a bit more needy recently too, but that's OK, I need the cuddles too. I dedicated my index card #89 to Penny.

Now I'm off to look at your desks! Have a great week!

WOYWW #423

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!  

Good morning everyone (or afternoon or evening, depending when your are reading this!) We have been having nice rain-free days for the past few days, summer might actually be here to stay!

Here is my desk this morning:


 Not too bad, I've been keeping it pretty clean lately! I find I am MUCH better at putting away my stamps now that they are in binders!

Index cards, Days 82-87




Still working on figuring out Pic Monkey backgrounds - seems I could fill in the background last week, but not this week!

I made 2 new canvases this week out of my index cards:


Here is what they look like on my stereo. I have about 10 completed, they are 5"X7":


We are going through tough times at the moment with our elderly cat, Penny, who is 18 years old. She has refused food and water for over a week now, and is quietly slipping away. She doesn't seem to be in pain, actually looks quite content. She spent pretty much all day for the last few days outside, wandering from place to place. We are keeping her inside today, although I don't think she could get very far today. I will probably have the sad news by next week. Here she was last week:

OK, yes, I am a day late, and today is Thursday, not Wednesday, but I have an excuse!


 Tuesday and Wednesday at a cottage with DD Caitlin and her MIL2B in Prince Edward County, about an hour and a half from me! This view is of West Lake. (Caitlin, me, MIL2B Nancy)

So rather than skip a week (horrors!) I'm late. 

Here is my desk this morning:




And my index cards - skipped last two days, so we have days 76-81:




And another Smash Journal page:


It has been raining A LOT here in the past few weeks, we've only just started to have nice summer days, but the garden loves the rain! The tomatoes have shot up! 

 and the roses are really blooming!


 So that's it for today, I hope some of you get around to me, even though I'm late! Inky has become the "in-out" cat, goes in when I do, then cries 5 seconds later to go out again! Silly cat! Penny hasn't been feeling well lately, and is spending a lot of time outside, lounging on the porch.




I couldn't say goodbye without a showing from Canada's 150th birthday on July 1!
 Hubby and I in matching T's! I'm off to do some desk snooping now!
