Wow - Wednesday again! So soon! I guess I am a very busy girl - and my desk shows it! I only have a few minutes here and there to work these days, so my desk just seems to get messier and messier! If you don't know why I am posting such a mess, go to my sidebar and click on the purpley square WOYWW button to find out!

Here I am trying to get my Halloween week page ready - already Wednesday and haven't written in it yet.

This is last week's page

Still working on Project Life for my daughter's Europe trip, found a way to kind of get things organized...

There is ALWAYS one of these on my table, most likely
  two or three!

Well, there it is for today, as I said, messier and messier! I do have a Christmas project to work on this week, maybe that will show up on next week's messy desk! Thanks for looking!

What's On Your Workspace Wednesday - at least it keeps me posting once a week! If you want to know what it is, please click on the icon on the sidebar - it will take you right to the source! This week I made an anniversary card for my husband (29 years!) and worked on my DD's Europe scrapbook. As I mentioned last week, I have discovered Project Life, and although I'm not doing it the way it's "supposed" to be done, I'm having great fun with it. So here's whats on my desk:

 My messy desk, I spelled "Avignon" wrong on this journal card, so have to re-do it. Not a problem! Would have been worse if it weren't PL!

 I made some journal card templates - they have come in very handy. What I really want are some dies to cut these sizes with rounded corners. Do they even exist?

 This has come in very handy. I printed this sheet from the Ranger site and it makes it much easier to find the Distress Colors I need to use. You can also see the little sheet of banners I got at Michael's yesterday.

And these I got as well, not just for Halloween!

Have a wonderful day, now I'm to see what's on everyone else's desk!

What's on my Workdesk Wednesday

Hi! I haven't posted for this for a very long time - tho I've thought about it a lot! Today my workdesk is a mess because yesterday I got an inspiration to work on my daughter's France-Spain travel journal. I had started it a year ago, but just didn't like it. When I went back to look at it, the pages had stuck together. That's not good! I've been eyeing the Project Life journals for awhile now, and I thought it would be perfect for her, then she could even change things around, or add things, whatever. So that is what the mess is all about, transferring what I did in the first journal (the parts I liked) into the Project Life journal.

Bye for now!

Just want to wish all the wonderful Canadians I know Happy Thanksgiving! And all the lovely Americans I know - Happy Columbus Day (although I don't think there's any turkey involved. . .!)  So glad to have my wonderful daughter back home for the weekend, the best part of Thanksgiving!

Some more Fall pics!


And another journal page:

August 9 - I thought I journal in all the Frame stamps I have! My fav was the magnifying glass!

And my "F" page in my ABC quote book:

Forgive others. not because they deserve it, but because you deserve peace.


Have everything I need for Turkey Day! Hope you do too!
Love you all,

Still walking, and seeing wonderful fall sights! I don't think I've ever seen these red and yellow maple keys before. . .

And the be-headed scarecrows are out! Shades of Game of Thrones - scarecrow style!

And does anyone know what tree has these long beans?

Here's another journal page from August. . .

Still playing with Janet's style!

And my ABC Quote book page"E"

Everything I need comes to me at the perfect time

That's it for today! Thanks for looking, Love you all! ♥

 And my "D" page in my quote book. . .

Do not let the behaviour of others destroy your inner peace

That's it for today! Love you all! ♥

It's October!! Boy how time flies! Everyday I go for two 10 minute walks to get me out of the house and into the outdoors where I can see the seasons change like I never have had time to before! Here are some photos from my walk:

Yesterday was International Cardmaking Day, and while I didn't make a card yesterday, I made 2 today! Both are for birthdays, but I can only show one (wink wink!):

The cupcake is a little hard to see, but very pretty in "real life"!
I used the marker and waterbrush technique over white embossed cupcake. And then I used Distress Ink on the birthday word background, and misted it before stamping. Nice watercolor effect. Actually the first time I've actually liked this stamp! All stamps are Hero Arts.

How about a journal page:

July 25-27 2013     
  I found some very cool large black numbers at the Dollar store, and drew on them in white. Neat effect!

And a page from my ABC quote Book: 

Coffee keeps me busy until it's acceptable to drink wine

And now, the coffee is done, I'm going to have some wine! Thanks for looking, I love you!
