WOYWW #515

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!

Hello everyone! Although the temperatures are still hovering around zero, it's starting to look like spring in Southern Ontario, Canada! The snow is gone (thankfully!) and the ice is off the lake. The birds are chirping, and Inky is keeping close watch:

"Potted cat"

But you are here to see my desk, so here it is. Not much happening, I'm gesso-ing my pages in my junk journal. I have been off work since last Friday with severe middle-back pain from repetitive use (work) so I haven't done much. I will probably be off about 2 weeks, and hopefully will be right as rain by then.

 I did go and spend my Christmas money before I was laid up:

  and here it all is, $100 worth (actually, I went over by about $20!), so about £69.00

So I got my first Lavinia stamps, these are so much fun! I plan to use some in my journal

 and a dragonfly die cut, and an embossing folder
 a stencil, and some neat vellum sayings
 some Tim Holtz Washi tape, a new white gel pen some Clair re-inker (expensive!) and a fine-liner bottle

My friend Marg has more Lavinia fairies, so hopefully we can get together for some playtime!

I promised to show you the birthday card I made last week for my Son-in-Law. He posted a photo on Instagram of a trip he made to Lithuania, and I couldn't help but snag it and use it for his card!

 Which nicely lined up with the new season airing of Game of Thrones! If you know the show, you recognize the reference!

And here is Mittsy to round out the post, still chasing  shadows on the wall! She's getting very good at it!

PS: in case you were wondering, this wall is carpeted! I don't even bother straightening the pictures anymore...we will just wait until she's too old for chasing shadows!

Have a wonderful week! I'm hoping to be able to spend some more time in my craft room on my "holiday"!

I did laugh at the cat photos. Mittsy is certainly very agile! Hope the back is better soon, but at least you'll have some time to play with the fabulous new stash. Great themed birthday card! Happy WOYWW and meow to Inky and Mittsy. Sarah #2

Love the “cat wall!” Ours would love that! The fight over the top spot in their cat tree! Enjoy those Lavinia stamps. I haven’t secured any (yet) They do have their own lovely style!

Your cats made me smile - one pretending to be a plant and one climbing the walls! I do love Lavinia stamps - must dig mine out again soon. I really hope your back gets better soon. Thanks for sharing and have a very Happy Easter, with love & God Bless. Caro x (#15)
