WOYWW #608

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! I'm very late today, and I have an appointment very soon, so I'm not sure when this will get published! Sometime today...

My 2 desks, first the cold one:

and the warm one :

The warm one has gotten all the love this week as I was busy making my pages in my Bullet Journal for February. I did not want to do "hearts", I ended up doing "Funky February" using my Dylusions stamps and a sticker book I bought years ago.

I had fun with the lettering, and my biggest buy of the week was sticker paper! I stamped on the sticker paper and was able to use in in my journal, and I could colour it with markers. Big game changer! The background on the first page was a background I had made in 2015 I think, and just printed it on sticker paper. February is the worst month of the year as far as I'm concerned, so I'm glad I made it fun!

And here is Mittsy, being not-so-ladylike

to say "meow! Have a great week!"

WOYWW #607

 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! More than halfway through January already! Very excited about Biden's Inauguration today! I hope everything runs smoothly. So many of us will happy to see the Orange Menace gone (apologies if I have offended anyone!).

But we are here to see desks, so my first desk (the cold one) is here:

It looks strangely neat...I must be getting tidy in my old age...

And the warm one is here:

That's more like it!

I started working in an old journal that I found, to get some practice in as I hadn't done any "art" for awhile. So here are a few of my pages, starting off very "safe" with a new die I got at Christmas, and getting more back to "me" as I go along: 

Using the negative of the die on the left, with a little pocket for a photo of me and DH at Christmas. On the right is a piece of paper with the quote that came in a Jane Davenport paper pack.

Many of the pages were already prepared with background colours so I just went with what I got.

I absolutely LOVE this painting of the fox, and I have several more by the same artist, no idea who did them or where I got them from...anyone know?

And now I feel more like myself...

I wish I could take credit for the woman and the hand, but I found them in my stash. I think I will incorporate this page into my Bujo.

I got a new TH stamp, as I had the die to go with it but not the stamps (at least I hope not! I better make sure I didn't buy something I already had!)

I went for a walk with my DD yesterday (via phone!) and stopped at the lake (Ontario), and there were dozens of these Mallards happily swimming around!

The lake is 15 minutes away, so there and back is my 30 minute walk!

What have the two furballs been up to? Well, here is Mittsy, Queen of the castle...

And whose little feet might these be peeking out from under my pillow? (I can't keep that corner on with this set of sheets! Doesn't seem to happen with the other set...)

Of course, it's Inky! We have a waterbed (heated!) so this is really the warmest spot in the house to sleep! 

Well, that's it for now, Inky and Mittsy say "meow", and I say have a great week and stay safe!

WOYWW #606

 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 to all my fellow Deskers! I hope today finds you well and happy, and feeling creative! I know many of you are in lockdown, as am I, and we can consider ourselves lucky that we have creative desks to go to - many do not.

I currently have 2 desks, as I know some of you do as well. Here is the one in the freezing cold room that isn't getting a lot of love lately:

Here is desk #2, much warmer! This usually has my Bullet Journal on it. The sunshine is actually through the's a cold day.
yes, the photos were taken yesterday...

I did make my tag for this week for my 52 week tag challenge: "A heart, any colour, anywhere on the tag"

  That's about it for upstairs, I made a few more tracker pages in my Bullet Journal:

Books I always have 2 going, one is on my Kindle, and one, a real book, in the tub. At the moment I'm reading Wildswept - a Viking story, and Ken Follet's The Morning and the Evening, taking place shortly after my Viking book, in England

Gift Cards: I get a lot of Gift Cards for Christmas and Birthday, and then forget to use them, so I'm hoping this will help! These are from this year and the last few you can see, Michael's Gift Card (local craft store) is almost gone!

Activity Log: And DD wants me to go for a "walk" with her everyday even though she's about 268km (166.5 miles) away! So I made a tracker for that as well! On no-walk days she's going to dance...

And that's it for this week. I hardly see Mittsy as she sleeps all day, and Inky is in the photo in the hammock. Mittsy comes alive around 10:30pm when we spend about 30 minutes tiring her out for the night!

Have a great week, stay safe!

WOYWW #605

 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!

Happy New Year everyone! I truly hope this new year brings you new hope, health and happiness, wherever in the world you are. I hope everyone gets their vaccine sooner than later, and that we can toss our masks soon! 

We are still in a lockdown until the 28th, and I hear that England is also getting more restrictions. Bummer.

Here is my first day of the month photo:

A beautiful day, sunshine and green grass, it's winter you say? Look below to see what a difference a day makes!

So finally the snow came and has stayed.

Here is my desk this morning:

No need for labels today...

So I thought I would give you a different view, from my door:

It's not that I didn't do anything in there this week, but it's darn cold in there! So I don't tend to spend a long time in there. I did make this tag, after joining a Facebook group called 52 Tags, where we will be making a tag a week for a year. Hopefully  can keep up!

The challenge for this one was white on white.

 So, I have been working on my Bullet Journal, also called a Bujo. A lot of you expressed an interest in it, so I will show you what I did this week. You can skip it if your are not interested! I've known about these for years, always thought they were a lot of work, and who has the time for that? job...guess who has time!

I showed you my cover page last week, here are the rest

 Index so I know where things are!

 Year at a glance & goals for the year

 Month at a glance

My friend Marg sent me this beautiful card for my birthday, which was on the 1st of January. Lavinia! Hubby gave me $100 gift certificate to my local stamp store - time to get more Lavinia!

Dailies continued, the rest are like this

Gratitude and tracking a few things I want to keep track of such as moods, playing piano, housework, etc. I'm not enthralled with the right side of this page.

Tracking sleep and weight loss

Tracking measurements. I can add to the Mandala if I want to

In the last week of January I will make February's calendar and daily pages.  This is the general recommended order, though some people do all their dailies for the year at once. I decided to do it this way. The tracking pages are for whatever you want to track (don't look at those numbers too closely!). I do have several more I want to make, and I could also add more after my February dailies if I wanted to. This has certainly kept me busy and my creative juices flowing! The perfect fonts you see on the first 3 pages are printed from the computer! One of things I want to do is learn to letter like that! 

 Anyway, that's it for me, here's Mittsy in one of her favourite poses, and Inky sitting on her favourite spot!

Looking out the door - do I want to go out there? What's Mittsy doing?

Have a wonderful week, stay safe!
