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!

Hi Linda, I've got those stamps somewhere and not sure I've ever used them so I'd love to see what you do with them (yes I know I'm bad!). Somebody obviously knows all the best spots. We used to look after my Sister-in-law's cat when they went away and nearly shut her in the airing cupboard but she started mewing, lucky cat. Loving your journal pages too. We are so lucky to have such interests and great friends to share it with. Take care and have a lovely creative woyww, Angela x14x

Hi Linda. Oh my - you have been so busy! Well done you. Enjoy the new stamps and die (when it comes). You have a heated water bed?! Goodness - do you ever get seasick? Or do you just get used to the movement?
Take care. God bless.

Linda, I love those TH stamps! Of course, I love ANYTHING TH, but those stamps really are yummy and could be used in so many ways! I love all those art pages! So creative, all!! Also, love your kitty scenes! What a joy to have those little guys around. Kitties have their own quirks and little habits. I had one that used to sleep on my head every night and nowhere else! Not sure what that was all about....maybe she thought she had me in submission...ha ha ha!! But I love to see their personalities come out! What a beautiful picture of the lake and the lovely birds. So serene! Stay safe and healthy! Blessings, Felicia #27 (By the way, have watched CNN all day and so glad the day has come and almost over!)

I haven't got those stamps but I'm pretty sure I have papers similar. Love tickets and taggs! The kitties are in the best place, Mr Jinx was sitting here with me, but likes to go to bed with us as soon as the heating goes off...which it's just done...(nearly 2 in the morning!) All the pages are lovely, with every little bit fixed in its right place! Happy WOYWW!? Stay Safe, Keep Crafting! ((Lyn)) #17

What fabulous journal pages Linda - all so different. Glad you are managing to get out on walks with your daughter if only virtually. Meow to Inky and Mittsy. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #3

Karen said...

Terrific pages ~ so many great collage pieces to enjoy ~ The make ahead backgrounds sounds like a good idea. Enjoy your new stamps and your furballs this week ~ Love, Karen#33

Heated waterbed - no wonder Inky likes it! I must get one of those hammocks for Oreo! Super journal pages - I have those ticket stamps and dies too - or at least I think I do LOL! It's so easy to forget what you have already bought and what you were just dreaming about buying. These are the two options - there's no third one LOL! Happy second half of January, Linda, although there's just over a week left now! xx zsuzsa #18

Shoshi said...

Love the journal, Linda, and the kitty pictures are really cute! I'm not surprised Inky likes the bed - what's not to like about a heated water bed! I bet that's super-comfortable in the winter!

Thank you for commenting, and I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. Funny about men and the "M" word, isn't it! Re my blender, I haven't actually told them I've bought a Vitamix yet... Lily and Ruby say "meow" and "purr purr" to Inky and Mittsy and Ruby apologises for her unladylike pose this week. She's not really trying to set a bad example to her little cousins across the Pond.

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi x #23

Loving the journal pages especially the more you ones! My eyes kept flicking to that dancing couple - what fun!
I am envious of those TH stamps but found a craft shop I hadn't been to before yesterday. Unfortunately my husband was with me.
Sorry I am late...
Happy WOYWW!
Stay safe and keep well!
