Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/p/what-is-woyww.html and all will be revealed!
Greetings everyone! I hope everyone is well, and happy! Here is a look out my window on Nov 1 - I want to take the same picture on the 1st of every month, just to see the passage of time...
This is my desk:
The Graphics 45 pages were from a Steampunk Paper collection and an Alice in Wonderland collection. I cut them all up so that would use them. I've had these books for many years, and never used them!
I spent the weekend cutting up all of my many 12X12 scrapbook paper books to 6X6 size (I rarely use paper larger than that) and put it all in this box:
and kept some 12x12 papers that wouldn't cut in quarters well
Why did I do this you ask? Because I had a huge drawerful of books and individual papers that I NEVER used. Or very rarely anyway.
Searching through those big books for a paper I liked was cumbersome and took a very long time, so I didn't bother. Which meant I had a ton of paper I didn't use. So now, I can flip quickly through the box of papers to find something I like and will use. I don't do 12x12 scrapbooks, so I don't need huge background papers. It was fun re-acquainting myself with every single piece of paper I have!
I kept my 8X8 books intact, as I only have a few.
I also re-discovered my Graphics 45 books, and as you saw on my desk, cut those up too. I am now much more likely to use those in my journals.
I also have 2 boxes of scraps to use, one for large and one for very small. I think I'm set!
I did make a couple of Christmas Cards:
This one used some SU paper, my new SU dies, and a die that I got for Christmas last year from hubby. The die cuts are backed by a rectangle of burlap that I found.
This one also uses SU paper and die cuts, and a stamp by Stampa Rosa
I was cleaning my office last week and found a box of treasure! Wow! It was like Christmas! I think this is where I found the burlap pieces I used on the card.
Halloween was a big success, we had more kids than usual, and everyone was doing "safe Halloween" - social distancing, masks, and there were even some candy shutes and candy "canons" at some houses! Here was our set-up: Everyone got a "hand" full of candies, and a bag of potato chips (crisps).

It got very cold and windy and we ended up in the car!
And this is what Inky does when I let her into my craft room: Her favourite spot to find new "toys"!
So that's it for me today, Inky and Mittsy say "meow" and I say "have a great week!"
