WOYWW #417


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! Hopefully everyone is enjoying a lovely Spring (or Fall!) day wherever you are! We have had a LOT of rain, but luckily we have had a few nice days in between.

Here is my desk today. I am somewhat in shock, as I seem to be putting things away as I finish using them. What is wrong with me? Obviously, not enough to do! 



Lately I have been so busy, I barely find time to do my index cards, but I have done them, here they are - I'm halfway through the 100 Day Project with card #50!





I did make a birthday card for DD, but as she hasn't received it yet, I won't post it until next week.

Garden: 

All the flowers from my beautiful crab-apple tree are already on the ground. I think the rain had something to do with that! I identified my giant pink flowering bush as Weigela.



I planted my herb garden this past week, put marigolds in my Perennial Garden, and planted 3 new perennials. I think this garden is now officially full!


can you "hear" the song in this one? 






 
I only have 2 little teeny gardens, this one and one I call my "grotto", which is next up for gardening. It will be neat to see this perennial garden fill in over the summer, it doesn't look like much right now!

Well, that's it for me for now! Inky and Penny want to say hello too!


Thanks for visiting! Now I am off to see your blog! I have developed a way to be able to get to everyone (I do 10 at a time!), maybe not all in one day, but I have been getting to you all! Thank you for your wonderful comments!

Congratulations to Julia and her awesome idea of 8 years ago! I've been posting since August 1, 2012, but I wasn't numbering them then, so I don't know which one it was! But 6 of those 8 years, anyway! We have such a wonderful group, and I feel like I have so many friends all over the world!

Here is my desk this morning - be prepared for a shock! (compare this to last week's picture here)


  I was down to a 4"x4" working space, so I thought it was "time"! Took much less time to do as I thought it would! But now I can't find my mouse pad. . .

Here are my index cards this week for my 100 Days Project:



and my garden! My crab apple tree is blooming, my favourite flowering bush (I don't know what it is) and most of the perennials I planted last year have popped back up!


and a message from Inky:


One last thing, I would like to extend my condolences to anyone who has been affected personally by the Manchester indecent, I know we have all been affected to some measure. Peace be with you all.

 Hello everyone! It's a beautiful sunny day here in Southern Ontario - hope your day is beautiful too! Spring is finally here, we had Mother's Day last weekend, where I got my traditional porch flowers! Now it feels like spring!



And here is my desk at 9am this morning:


messy as usual!


Here are the index (divider) cards that I made this week - today will be Day 40!

 
and my latest journal page:




And Inky oversees it all - when she's not outside! 
 

I apologize for not getting to everyone last week, it was such a busy week, I am hoping to get to everyone this week! 

Have a great week, I am now going to peek at your desks!

Greetings! Once again, a sunny day after a full week of rain, rain, and more rain. lots of flooding in Ontario and Quebec, especially Ottawa and Montreal, but we've had our road closures as well. Luckily, our sump pump is working fine, although it always seems to be on! But now we have buds and flowers! Yay!



 So that's the garden, thanks to all the rain everything is green!

Here is my desk this morning:



New stamps on sale at Michael's - couldn't resist!

All my stamp-filled binders so far! Still quite a few to go. . .

A look at my whole table. . . you can see the black paper in the middle left - that is where I work!

And here is what I've been doing this week:

My journal page is finally finished

My last 7 cards from my 100 Days Project


Someone asked what I was going to do with these, at the time I had no idea, but now I do:




 These are 5x7 canvases, with the sides painted black. I will try to sell them! I was thing $25CAD - what do you think?  About 14.00 in English pounds.

So that me this fine day, and here is Inky
 off on her walkabout!

Have a great day, thanks for visiting!

 Greetings everyone! Finally we have a sunny day, after days and days of rain - sometimes torrential!


No one was happy, especially Inky, who refused to go outside in the rain and cold (who can blame her?). Today the sun is shining and we are happy once again!

Here is my desk this morning:


 I have finished unmounting all my letter stamps, and I'm now working on my word stamps. I started with this giant monstrosity from 7-Gypsies. At the time I bought it I thought it would be fun. (it's huge)
 But it wasn't. All the words were on one giant sheet of clear plastic, and it was VERY difficult to pull off one word or phrase - I even managed to rip a couple, and then putting them back? Impossible. So it sat, untouched for years. But now - here they are, all ready to use! I had to cut them all out with scissors.

I found a use for the hundreds of photo album pages that have been coming with the binders I've been buying - you know, the old heavy sticky ones with the plastic overlay? These stamps stuck beautifully to them - I just cut them to fit. And if you peel off the plastic, the rubber stamps will stick to that (usually)! An AHA! moment!! That;s how I unmounted all my letter stamps - I stuck them to the photo album pages!

Here are my index cards this week - I'm up to 25! One quarter of my Hundred Days done!



Well, that's it for me this week, here's my other Fur Baby, Penny,  meowing and whining at me while I'm writing this. . .
so let's go get Inky from outside and have treat time! And then I will be looking at your desks! Thanks for visiting!
