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 St. Patrick's Day! Living in a University town, St. Patrick's Day in the past was absolutely crazy. The downtown streets were literally packed with beer drinking students wearing silly hats and drunk by lunchtime. It was scary driving down the streets because you were driving though a wave of people who parted as you drove through. This year that definitely didn't happen, and since all the parties took place on the weekend and were fined if there were over 5 people, it was a pretty quiet year. I'm thinking next year they will make up for it.
So, onto my desks today. Here is my craft room desk
I made 2 "Mandala" style pages last week in my art journal. I was inspired by one of our own, Sue Renshaw, who makes gorgeous mandalas. I came across a set of Jane Davenport stamps that looked like it could be made into a kind of mandala, so I tried it!
When I started these pages I had no idea what I was going to do, so I glued on some scrapbooking paper, stenciled over it with triangles, then found these stamps. I used markers to colour, and you can see the stenciled triangles peeking through the black. I stamped the eyes onto sticker paper, coloured them and stuck them on.
Vaccines are happening all around me! People 80+ can get vaccinated, and people 60-65, but not us 65-80 yet. Craziness! Many of my younger friends are vaccinated. Hopefully our turn will come soon.
I will be thinking of Shaz on Friday, as her family says good-bye on last time. Goodbye but not forgotten, Shaz.
Well, that's it for me. It's s-l-o-w-l-y warming up here, the snow is receding, but realistically our date for no more below zero nights is May 24th. So it will be awhile, and we could possibly get snowed on again!
Here is Mittsy after less than 5 minutes outside this morning...
And now she's conked out in the hammock on my desk! (Inky's still outside)
Have a wonderful week, the kitties say "meow"!
