WOYWW #524

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!

Greetings everyone! We have a glorious sunny day today - the second in a row! Let's home summer is here to stay!

We are here today to look at desks, and mine is especially messy today - that means lots has been happening! I'm making a gift for a friend, a journal made of envelopes, following a tutorial from Bohemian Crafting. I have fallen in love with this woman and her tutorials!

So here is my desk, I'm almost finished with putting together the project, I am just gluing the spine in this photo. I have so little room to actually work, I do most of my cutting and scoring on my lap! (click to enlarge)

and a sneek peek at the folder - more will be revealed next week!

I'm following a tutorial at Bohemian Crafting, and I keep getting ahead of myself, completing something, just to find out, no, I should have watched the whole segment first! Oh well, that's how we learn!

I was excited to buy some labels from Eva (from Bohemian Crafting). I've never bought anything like this from anyone before, always figured I could just make it myself, but I caved and bought them off Etsy. I'm so glad I did! I was expecting an envelope with labels...but I got so much more:

I got a lace covered journal (from inside a lovely decorated envelope)!

opened up...beautiful embossed pocket with lots of goodies sticking out! But I don't see any labels...

I opened this card next...
 but it doesn't open, it pulls out! (I remember seeing her tutorial on how to make this)

now for the right side, looks interesting (but where are the labels?)

a journal card pulls out, the flaps open up...

 the whole thing flips up, more journal cards...(but where are the labels? I'm beginning to worry...)
I find this folded up and sealed with a pull I open it? Pull the strip?
 I do, and voila! the labels!

Oh my goodness, that was more fun than I've had in a long time! This was so awesome, I've seen her make these journals on her You Tube channel, this makes them all so real! Thank you so much, Eva!

Well, I think I've used up all the time I have to share, the kitties are outside enjoying the weather (they just came in a little while ago for mid-morning treats, and wanted immediately to go back out - just like a couple of kids!)

So, meow from the wayward kitties, and have a great week from me! Next week, hopefully, I will share my project!

Thank you for your "late" comment Linda - I never worry about late! Lovely to read comments any time!! I was so amused to read about your kitties' antics too - they all have their funny little ways and rivalries! Lily and Ruby say Meow to Inky and Mittsy. I love your busy desk and all your supplies - not surprised you have to do cutting on your lap! I've got a lot more space but that just means I've got more space to make a mess and less space to work. I do have a separate surface for cutting though. I love Bohemian Crafting too - I often visit her site and enjoy her gorgeous journals. What a brilliant pack you got from her. I loved seeing all that fabulous vintage stuff.

Hope to join in WOYWW again this week if I can. I'm super excited about something happening on Wednesday!!

Happy belated WOYWW and hugs,
Shoshi #16
