WOYWW #489

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!

Brr! Getting very chilly here! Just changed over my spring summer clothes for fall winter! Of course, now that I have done that we will get record breaking heat! (hope not!)

My desk last week was so messy, I only had a small space to work in, so I decided yesterday to tidy up:


But. . .I got distracted by a cigar box I found while continuing my clean up to the side, and had an idea. . .

Remember the stencils I got last week? 


Here is what I have used them for so far:

In my junk journal: 

on the matting of these photos:


and these two birthday cards for friends:


That's it for me today, Inky is camera shy today, so I will say "meow" from her, as I'm sure she means it, and "Have a great week!" from me!

Hello all! I hope you are all enjoying nice weather - we actually broke a heat record yesterday with 21C. I don't know if that is good or bad considering the news we got yesterday about climate change. But the weather is nice anyway.

My DD was visiting last week, and so I really didn't get to my desk at all, except to make her a (pretty lame) bookmark. I will make her some more this week (hopefully). As you may or may not know, we had our Canadian Thanksgiving this past weekend. Do you have Thanksgiving where you are? It is a time to feel thankful and grateful for what we have in our lives. I feel that everyday, but it is nice to celebrate it with loved ones as well!

Here is my desk this morning:


and my new stencils!

Now for some weekend pics-we went to a place called Upper Canada Village on Saturday night, usually a reconstructed village from the 1800's, now transformed into Pumpkin Inferno! All of these are made from carved pumpkins! 


Owls. . .

This one was part of a 60's theme presentation, complete with music and flashing lights
  Under the sea...

famous paintings. . .


and so much more! You can google it and see more photos if you want!

Here we are tat the end, I bought myself a spiderweb hat!


and now Thanksgiving. . .DD and her Grandma (my mom)

DD and her Uncle Ken (my brother) (he made the pumpkin pies!)

and dinner! Turkey fresh out of the oven. . .


and my plate. . .


and Monday we went for a walk down to the lake while the soup was bubbling away

 It was sad to see her leave, but we had such a lovely time!

Here is my fall garden this morning:


and Inky overseeing it all!


If you had Thanksgiving this weekend, I hope yours was as lovely as our was! Inky says "meow!" and I say "have a great 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!

Hello everyone! It's cold and rainy here in southern Ontario, hope you are having better weather! I was only in my stamping room a couple of times this week, and my desk looked like this this morning:



I had a good friend in hospital this week who had an emergency triple bypass, so I gave her this card that I had made previously, as a get-well card. (she's doing well!)


And I have prepped my junk journal page for Thanksgiving which we are celebrating in Canada on the weekend. The white page on the left is waiting for my new stencil to arrive, I have plans. . .


And my Day of the Dead journal page is finally finished! All I needed was the white to finish it off, and I was able to do it with a fine liner bottle of white paint + extender to get some beautiful fluid white lines

And here is Inky, all tired out after "helping" me change the sheets on the bed!

  
Inky says "meow" and I say "Hope you have a wonderful week!" 

PS: I'm hoping to get to as many of you as possible, but my DD is arriving tonight while I'm at work and we have a lot planned for the next few days, so I do apologize in advance if I don't get back to you this week, I will try and make up for it next week!

Happy Fall everyone! It is definately fall here in Ontario, we are hoping some semblance of summer comes back for a little while anyway! 

Here is my desk this morning, still working on that journal page! (Got the date wrong - oh well- looked exactly the same yesterday!)



Here's my journal page, almost finished, added some hair and other things this week.  I am following "The Day of the Dead Sugar Skull Art Journal Class" by Nicole Bray. 

Put up some fall decorations (as one does with the change of seasons!) I used Artisto to make it "artistic". This is my coffee table.


My front door. . .


. . .and my mailbox


Inky says "meow" ( she's having fun scaring the pigeons!) and I say Have a lovely fall week!

Another Wednesday morning - they do come by quickly! I have been busy the past couple of days with an online tutorial called "The Day of the Dead Sugar Skull Art Journal Class" by Nicole Bray. So here is my messy desk today:



Here it is partially finished, I still have a ways to go. The colours should be more vibrant, but I don't have the expensive paints and paint pens she does. I probably should have used my Dylusions, but I didn't realize it would get so muddy. I'm sure by next Wednesday it will be finished. Not quite my style, too busy, too many layers! I will probably do another one when this one is done. I like the skull though!

I told you I would show the birthday card I made last week, but as usual, I put it in the envelope and sealed it before I remembered to take a pic. But I did take a pic of the envelope!

The card was bird-related too.

We have been having beautiful weather lately, but by the weekend things will cool down again, and we will be getting the tail end of the Hurricane Florence that devastated the Carolinas and Virginia. It was so sad to see this happening, Myrtle Beach is one of our favourite places. I hope everyone is OK, and that lives get back to normal soon. So sad for the lives that were lost, especially the children.

I thought I was doing so well with my tomatoes until it got really HOT, and a squirrel, or raccoon, broke off a big branch of my cherry tomato plant!



So I just stuck the branch into the tub on the porch where my lettuce had been.. .
 Wow-now bigger than the mother plant! Lots of flowers too! I guess it was just too hot in front of the porch, I will have to plant all my veggies on the porch next year. And I planted more lettuce there too.

Well, time to leave you, I will visit as many as I can next week (my work hours have gone crazy these past couple of weeks - I'm so tired!). Inky says "Meow" from her favourite chair, and I say "have a great week!"

Hello all my lovely deskers! Once again, my desk on Tuesday, but exactly the same on Wednesday morning. Here it is:



and to my right. . .
 A question about the Dylusions sprays - mine seem to have mostly stopped working, especially green and yellow, any tips? And my 2 1/2 inch punch has not only stopped working, it exploded.


New journal pages! This one from a week ago is finished


and this is my new one. I hated this one at first, but kept following the "inner voices", I like to think of them as the journal page telling me what to do, and this came out. Click to see the words! (I love it now!)


And Inky has been reluctant to go outside lately because the temperatures have dropped considerably, but they are now slowly warming up. Here she is contemplating pigeons. . .I say yes! Eat them up! But she has never killed a bird in her life, so her answer will probably be "nope"! I have no idea where these creatures have come from. . .


Anyway, we both wish you a wonderful week of craftiness!
