Over on the Rhedd and Rosie Challenge blog they are asking for trees/wood, their 29th challenge - I only just found it!

 I love Stampscapes - I really must do this more often!

Watch out for this guy!

WOYWW 251!

Not that many posts for me, but I'm sure there are some die hard WOYWW posters out there! Please check the paisley button on my sidebar for more info on WOYWW (What's on Your Workspace Wednesday)

So here it is - the messy desk, as it was this morning.

I had an idea for a project board. I have one for scrapbooking and I love it, but it's always in use. I wanted one for card planning. I found a few ideas online - one was all set to go for $30 or so, one was shown in a tutorial on a card blog. I didn't want big gaudy magnets that would take away from the card, so I used my very strong tiny magnets from my scrapbooking magnet board. I switched some round craft magnets for them, since I do Project Life scrapbooking, it doesn't matter what's holding the photos down, as long as they don't fly away.  But for planning a card, I don't want the magnets to distract from the card.
 I went looking for a magnetic white board, as the woman on the blog suggested, and found these Magnetic Die Sheets, thinking they just might work, and beside - I really NEED some of these! So for about $9.00 I bought a set of 3 (cheaper in the USA!) Well, they didn't work for the project board, buy that didn't matter at all. Then I remembered I had some new Dollar Store cookie sheets in the garage, and VOILA! A perfect planning board for my cards.     
The Art Bin sheets have a carrier to go with them if desired, so far I don't need it.

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is up to today!

Happy First Day of Spring!!!

This spring piggy was too cute to pass up! Looking forward to those spring puddles to splash in!

Here is a Spring ATC for you:

 This was made with Distress Ink swiped onto white CS, then sprayed with water and heat dried. I stamped a Character Construction stamp on top, then stamped a feather from the same set on another piece of white CS and cut it out. The feather looks better in "person".

I'm obviously into the spring greens and yellows, because here is my Journal page from yesterday:


 The challenge was to use a bird on my page, so I used one I had carved myself.

Have a wonderful first day of spring!

Here We Go Again. . .

Well, here it is March, and I haven't posted since February. Hard to believe time goes by so FAST! So it's Wednesday, the day for WOYWW (see paisley button on my side bar if you want to know more!) and here is my VERY messy desk. Not that there's any room at all to do any work. First job of today will be to clean it up!

And here's my kitten, Inky, searching for something new to play with. . .

 And she brings out a bag! The other day she dragged a piece of tissue paper 5X her size down the stairs - hilarious!

 This is the one that brings smiles and laughter to my day!
Hopefully I will get into this room today and get something done, even if it's only to make space for tomorrow!

Hope everyone is ready for Spring tomorrow! Yay!
