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:

WOYWW #422

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!  

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!

WOYWW #421

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 all! Another power outage planned for today, but not until 12:00, so I at least have the morning to get things done!


Here is my desk at 9am this morning:

 No art on it because the last workshop I took from the Woman Unleashed Retreat was about relationships - we had to fill out these forms. The info may result in a journal page, I don't know yet.

But here is the last journal page I made for the retreat. You had to turn your journal 90 degrees every few minutes to get a different perspective on your work, and add to it. The more I turned it it, the more I hated it! Finally I added the magazine woman and some paint, and it's at least acceptable now.

Here are my index cards this week, I'm up to 75! I had to skip a few days where I was just too busy:


And it is a BEAUTIFUL sunny day today, just after a rain, everything smells fresh, the dew is on the flowers, so I thought some garden pics would be nice!
 My little perennial garden is starting to break out in flowers galore!

 This is my little corner-of-the-driveway "grotto", small but oh so pretty! The roses are on the other side, and you can see the bird feeder on the upper right. We feed the birds, the squirrels, and the rabbits from this feeder!

Our first red rose:

The tomatoes are growing like wildfire!
 And here are our first pink roses, picked a few days ago:


Hope I didn't bore you with all the garden pics! I have such a small garden, but it gives me so much joy!

Here's Inky, doing what she does so well!
  
I hope everyone has an awesome week, full of joy, creativity and love! I'm off now to visit yours!

WOYWW #420

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!

Strange day today, the electricity was off from 9am to 1pm, throwing of my whole WOYWW! This was a planned outage, and if I'd had my head on right, I would have done all this yesterday, but I didn't. So I'm starting late. And then on Julia's website it said #421, but I know it's #420! AND last weeks #419 is missing from the website, so I lost out on seeing many of the posts last week, since I didn't get around to it until very late (busy busy busy!!) So if I didn't get to yours, I apologize, and if I didn't reply to a few who got to my desk, it was because the post was missing, so I will go to you first today! 

Here was my desk this morning. I took the first photo from the door, showing my nice, formerly clean chopper, now full of STUFF! I was doing a journal project yesterday and I needed a lot more room. 



This one is of the desk - I like all this room to work!


I joined a Women's Online Retreat called "Women Unleashed", and there are 2 workshops a day. I know I will only be able to do one a day at the most. On the weekend I made a journal called a "Cosmic Smash Journal" which was the first activity of the retreat.



Side view - and it smells like maple sugar!

My first workshop was yesterday by Shiloh Sophia, called "Embodied Succulence" - here is the page I did:

 It was all about having a conversation with your body, getting to know and love your body! And we had to name our "lady" so I named her Lady of Growth". If you would like to join, here is the  link at the bottom of this page

If you want to follow me to see the progress of this workshop, and/or to see my index cards, you can follow me on Instagram @lindart61

 Here are my daily index cards from my Hundred Day Project from last week:






No garden photos today, but we are eating the lettuce, and fresh herbs!

Today 16 year old Penny says hello, she's never too far away!

So I am off to visit yours, not sure how many I will get to this week as it is even busier than last week! But I will make an effort!
Have a wonderful 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 WOYWW day! We are having a lovely sunny and warm week so far! Hubby put on the AC because he can't stand humidity, while I say "what humidity?" LOL!

Here is my desk this morning:

 Still not too bad! Only one stamp to put away! I'm on a roll!

Here are my index cards this week, #58-64


My tiny garden is doing well - we had our first lettuce harvest yesterday! 


 and some perennials about to bloom. . .

and hubby's precious Morning Glories are sprouting! 


We had a wonderful weekend celebrating DD's 31st birthday (belated - she spent the real one in Las Vegas! My girl knows how to party!)

 and when we say the water is high this year on the lake (Ontario), this is what we mean:



Inky says "hello" as she surveys her territory!



I hope everyone has a wonderful week, and that any Dads celebrating this Sunday have a great Father's Day! I'm off to visit yours now!
