Thank goodness for WOYWW (What's on your Workspace Wednesday) - it a least reminds me to blog every once in awhile! Just click on the fancy button on my sidebar to find out what this is all about!
So, one of my New Years resolutions was to work in my stamp room for at least 15 minutes a day. Doesn't matter what I'm doing in there, as long as I'm there. For some reason, even though all I think about all day is art, art seems to be on the bottom of my list. Ok, I'll do some art when I finish this, or I'll do it after this and that, whatever. I want to put it at the TOP of my list! So this week I started - 15 minutes a day. Two days in so far so good! Luckily I was reminded in my emails about WOYWW and I ran right up and took some photos. Here they are:

I was working on my Journal, stamping my words with clear stamps. I went from the word LIVE to the word BEFORE. In that moment between the 2 words, my E disappeared. Gone. How does this happen?? Has this ever happened to you? I took out my flashlight and went over every square inch of my workspace - no E. I checked my clothes. No E. Mind you it's clear, but I didn't feel it either. I asked to Universe to bring it back. Will check again today to see if it shows up! Strange. . .

Thanks for visiting!

What fun pages! love the colors! Great resolution to make just for you! I know Julie Fei Fan Balzer does something like that on her blog, 15 min a day. Great! Some days I get in there, and others, well the day escapes me. I am smiling about your E problem as I "lost" a clear stamp once, and it stuck on my bottom (have no idea I was sitting on it) until hubby asked why I was wearing my stamps! Enjoy the day! Winnie#68

Think your 15 minute a day is a great idea and one I should try. Sometimes it's hard to devote a lot of time to crafting and others it's hard to tear myself away. Your desk looks just like mine, productively messy, love it.
Thanks for calling by earlier.

This post is hysterical. I feel like I wrote this post verbatim. I have so many supplies, love art, but I spend more time wishing I was in my Sue-Dio (named my art room after me - Sue), reading blogs for hours, loving everyone else's creations. Lose your "E". Me too. Always lose at least a few things every time. Sometimes they show up in the strangest places and sometimes I never find them.
