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! It's been a crazy week in this part of the world with the elections and the toddler in chief throwing his various tantrums. I wasn't able to get to everyone who thoughtfully left comments on my blog, I read them all and appreciated them all! This week, I will try to do better next week. I wore out two of my blades on my slicer from slicing up all my papers, so I had to go to Michael's to get more, which of course meant I had to check out the sales...
My papers are now all cut, I had to move them to a bigger box! I kept several 12x12s, and if I need a 12x12 for a special project I will just go and buy it.
So this is now my patterned paper supply, which left me with a whole empty drawer! (Minus the Christmas papers which are in their own box) I filled the drawer with my Big Shot boards, my TH people, and my slicer. Very convenient!
Here is my desk:
I'm playing around with a Tim Holtz Sizzix Bigz Die of a bell jar that I have never used before. I have a certain idea in my head, but I can't quite get it to work...yet!
Here is what I picked up at Michael's (you didn't think I just bought the blades did you?)
some new additions to our Christmas Village too!
And here are the cards I've been making all week while watching the snail paced election results:
Another Tim Holtz Bigz die...and the inside of the bird card:
I believe this is a Recollections stamp
Viva Las Vegas Stamp, again, one I have never used before
I found three of these in my paper stash, probably from a workshop many years ago. I don't have this embossing folder, but I like it!
I'm still working on the 3rd one.
In my paper stash I found a 12x12 page of Christmas words, kind of like the Tim Holtz books, but it wasn't TH. I cut them all out and I've used several so far! You see one on the card above this one.
Mittsy and Inky
The two rascals gave a bit of a scare last week, as I was sitting in my second floor craft room, I looked out the window and saw a big squirrel high up in the tree...but wait...it wasn't a squirrel - it was Mittsy! So I ran outside to check it out, thinking maybe the fox had chased her up the tree, and there was Inky as well!
They were both fluffed up, so it probably was the fox, but he was nowhere in sight. Inky was about 8 feet up, higher than I could reach, and Mittsy was way up at the top. As I was wondering what to do to get them down, Mittsy fell/scrambled/ shimmied down the tree. Inky decided maybe she could as well, and shimmied down with me ready to catch her. They both spent the afternoon inside after that ordeal, but when they went back out later, Mittsy went straight to the tree to sniff around! At least I know and they know they can get way from whatever chases them by going up a tree!
We have had some gorgeous sunsets recently, here is one from the other day, overlooking Lake Ontario:
Well that's it for me! Have a wonderful week. Mittsy and Inky say "meow"!
