WOYWW #391

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to  and all will be revealed!

 This week I made one Christmas Card, and worked in my journal. I also decide my messy desk need a cleaning!

My one and only Christmas Card this week:

and my journal page - almost finished!

That's it for me this week! Hopefully a clean(er) desk will help with the making of more cards!

Thanks for peeking!

WOYWW #390

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to  and all will be revealed!

Winter has struck here in Eastern Ontario, we have snow, and below freezing weather, however, it is supposed to warm up on the weekend! Inky is not happy cat - she has her outside routine all summer, and now she refuses to go outside!!

Here is my "Nest" this morning, it's quite a trial these days to get to my chair, with all my boxes of stamps piling up around me!

I have to walk very carefully, sometimes I hear things crashing down behind me! Here is my desk this morning:

Quite messy, I think I will have to break down and clean it up!

 Here are parts of a card I'm making. . .this is a Hero Arts stamp with an added Santa and Sleigh - one of my favorite and most versatile Christmas stamps!
And here is the card: of course the snow is all beautiful and glittery!

Sadly I had to make Sympathy Cards this week,

And I bought some new Stickles - what a difference a little Stickles makes!

Thanks for looking! 
Happy Turkey Day for anyone celebrating tomorrow!

WOYWW #389

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to  and all will be revealed!

I have started making my Christmas Cards, so this is what my desk looks like today:

Here are the cards I have made so far:

This one needs Stickles - which I have lost!! Time to clean my desk...

These are the ones I made at a Stampin' Up Christmas Card class last week:

So, there's my start on Christmas!

Here is Step 2 of my paper towel journal page:
I added Washi Tape as a border- I think it is Tim Holtz tape

Well that's it for today! Short and sweet for a change! Thanks for visiting!

WOYWW #388

Another Wednesday - 4 in a row! Hopefully I can keep this up! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to  and all will be revealed!

I have been working on my journals this week - yes, I have two that I am currently working on. First, there is the one you are all used to seeing, my Journal #13, almost finished! Then there is a new-ish journal I am calling Mama Bird Journal #1. 

As some of you might remember, way back in the summer I had started working on a Life Coaching course called ARTbundance. Well, I am now in the very ending stages, I have 2 coaching sessions to do, and one "event" workshop to do, then I will hopefully get my certification!

If you would like to help me get to my certification, you can attend my FREE workshop event, on Monday Nov 14, at 10am EST, AND get lots of FREE goodies from ARTella at the same time!

Here is the workshop, it is called: 

Nurturing Your Nest with ARTjournaling

All of us have our “nest”, our place of comfort and safety. This workshop will help you to nurture your nest so that you can deal with the day to day problems that we all have. We will do this in two ways:
1-through learning about ARTbundance and ARTsignments
2-through recording your experiences in an ARTjournal – no experience necessary!
You will leave this workshop with 3 completed pages of an ARTjournal, and one to work on afterwards; some great insights, and the great feeling of having had FUN! There will also be a follow up email with more ideas, and how to make your pages into a book form.

This workshop is for you if:
1. You would like to find out more about yourself, and how to manage your own day to day problems
2. You have never heard of ARTjournaling and it intrigues you
3. If you have heard of ARTjournaling and have always wanted to try it but had no idea how to start, or even if you could do it
4. If you are artistic and want a way to use your creativity
5. If you are NOT artistic but want to try anyway! You don’t need to be an artist for this workshop, or even creative!

Now, I know you are ALL artistic, and perhaps the thing you would learn in this workshop (which is the very BASIC of Art journaling techniques) but you might be interested in the Nurturing part of it, how to make your art journal a Nurturing place through ARTbundance.. You can do whatever you like on your pages!

If you are interested, please click here:

Scroll down past the blue with the sunflowers, and I am there. 

OK, now that that part is done, here is my desk this week:

I am working on a journal page in my Mama Bird Journal, which is connected to my ARTbundance course. Here is the finished page:

This page is about celebrating the completion of my course - even though it isn't actually completed yet!

Here is the cover of my Mama Bird Journal - I made this cover years ago - now I know what it was waiting for!

Here is an actual clean spot in my stamp room (which I am renaming "my nest"):

Here is the finished page from Journal #13 from last week - I thought it was too bright, so I toned it down:

and here is step one using the paper-towel mop-up from last week:

One last photo - of me! In my Nest!

So glad you stayed all the way until the end - Thank you!

WOYWW #387

Another Wednesday - 3 in a row! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to  and all will be revealed!

I have mostly been working on journal pages lately. I did envision myself cleaning up my desk, but it just didn't happen! So here's what it looks like today:

Not a lot different, maybe even messier than last week!

Here is a paper towel I used on my last journal page, dried. I'm going to try and use it on another journal page! It's so pretty!

Here are the other journal pages I have been working on-

I love the colors in this one:
and I used my new feather stamps and die cuts

And step one of my newest page, not sure where it's going yet. . .

Well, that's it for now! I will go and peek at YOUR desks now!
