Another Wednesday, time for a peek at each other's desks and projects! If you would like to learn more, just go to Maybe you could join our little group! 

Greetings to everyone out there! I hope you are all comfortable in whatever weather you are having!

We got our 2nd jabs yesterday, a lucky break for us and now we don't have to wait until July 13th! Just that much closer to meeting our Grandbaby in person!

Here is my desk today:

And my partially finished project. These little things to clip onto journal pages, but I just need the right paper clips. This was fun to do, and I will have a bunch to choose from when I need some decorating done. I like the little paper pad that I can pop into a journal, even take out and journal on a trip, then pop back in

And a Dollar Tree buy for $1.25, I love these butterflies, they are on sturdy cardstock, and so work well on my little clips.

Last week I promised you pics of Inky, since she hasn't been in the last few posts. Here she is on the porch, with Mittsy on the grass. They spend their days either on the porch, or making sure their territory is safe from intruders! They pop back inside every few hours to say hello, have a nibble and a pee, and then they are out again!

Inky in her favourite indoor sleeping spot, on a shelf I made for her in our bedroom window. I'm thinking she might need a bigger bed...

And here she is on my lap on the porch. She often sits on my lap when I'm sitting outside with my coffee or wine.

We all say "Meow" and "Have a great week" !

Hello to all my cyber-friends! I'm not sure I could have survived the last year and a few months as well without you! My count is 462 days since I left work due to the pandemic, and I will be counting until I am fully vaccinated, which will be on July 13th! Then I am (sort of) free again!

You are here to see my desk, well here it is. I am in mid-production of my latest project, which hopefully I can show you next week. You saw the first step last week on my desk.

We had Father's Day last Sunday, which I think most of you did as well. Here is my card to my hubby


And from the kitties

(Tim Holtz cats)

We had a Father's Day feast of Take-Out Chinese food - our favourite! We always order way more than we need so it will last a few days!


Now for that project, if you watch Bohemian Crafting videos you will know what this is, if not...

That's all you get for now!

Garden: You have been so kind to me about my garden, thank you. I do not consider myself a "gardener" but over the years things have started to look good! Hubby got a birdbath fountain for the birdbath for Father's Day, it's so mesmerizing to watch! It works through solar power, so on sunny days we get this, and on cloudy days we get spurts...

These Chinese Bellflowers were given by a neighbor last year - so pretty! Purple and white ones

and my rosebuds...are now roses! We don't get too many, so this is the best way to enjoy them

Here are Mittsy and her friend Loki hanging around the watercooler...

And Mittsy approving our new addition, a Spirea bush with 3 different coloured flowers when it blooms!

My DD finally gave me her permission to post a picture of my new granddaughter, Jasper Jane! Here she is at just over 1 month old...smiling at her Mom for the first time (usually she only smiles for her Dad!)

I will leave you with Mittsy at her finest, lounging in bed with hubby and me as we watch Dr. Who...

I will try and get some pics of Inky next week, she's a bit less active and less flamboyant!

 The kitties say "meow!" and I say "Have a wonderful week!

 Hello everyone! I'm so excited, I am going to lunch at a restaurant patio with my Mom today - the first time in at least a year! Hopefully we will get a table, since patios just opened last Friday and everyone wants to go! We have been very lucky lately, only 4 covid cases in our area, so I feel pretty safe, even with only 1 jab.

Well, you are here to see my desk, here it is!

I fixed my mistake from last week (the photo last week was just a computer edit) to spell "pathway" correctly", and made a new page for "J" - Joy!

 The stamp is Viva Las Vegas, and the stencil is homemade. Next comes "K", hopefully I will get to it next week.

That's it for me today, I've been going to Physio for my shoulder and my hip, doing the exercises, trying to walk, and generally lazing around watching the birds enjoy the new birdbath.

Father's Day is coming up on Sunday so I will need to make a card for hubby, he is a great father!

 My Perennial Garden, small but pretty!

Mittsy and her new friend Loki, just chillin' by the Weeping Willow...
And that's it for today! Inky and Mittsy say "Meow" and I say have a great week!

Hello everyone!  I hope you are enjoying beautiful June days as we are! In spite of continuing computer problems, I am finally able to get this blog done. I have been in my craft room this week, mostly working on a journal and a Quote Book I started several years ago. It's an ABC Quote Book, and I am on "J" right now, just having finished "I" the other day.

So here is my desk this morning:

 You can see my Quote Book sticking out from under the box!

 Here is the "I" page:

It's a long book made from handmade paper. When I went to edit it, I noticed, to my shock, that I had left the "h" out of Pathway! I added it in in editing, but I must have looked at that page a hundred times and not noticed it until I took a picture of it! So I will fix it today.

The next two pages are in a little square journal with lined pages that I started years ago as well. The images in this first one are from a Jane Davenport paper pad.

This one already had the blue left hand corner painted when I got to it, I must have been using up extra paint. I just added collage pieces from my stash.

 And here is my favourite part of my garden that I call my "grotto" . Can you find Mittsy? She loves it in there!

Anyway, that's it for me, Inky and Mittsy say "meow", and I say have a lovely week!

The 2nd of June already! I have taken a beginning of June photo here:

We have a lovely flowering bush that I can smell all the way up to our upstairs bathroom while I taking my bath! We lost a tree over the winter from this spot which was sad, it's much more open now on the corner.

Today's desk:

Some new journal pages:

The left side is a card (not the octopus though!) that a friend sent me on my birthday. I like to use cards I get in my journals!

And my June BUJO - I'm sure you can guess the theme!

This page still needs some work...

I have a different quote for each week

Mood and sleep, also recording when I'm in pain. I've stopped using my watch info for sleep, it's usually wrong.

I have found recording my dinners to be very helpful when I need to find, for example, the last time we had sausages for dinner! I need to keep my calories between the 2 red lines.

Well that's about it for today. I'm hoping to get around to more people next week, I apologize for being remiss. My leg has been extremely painful, so I'm doing a lot of resting, and my computer keeps crashing when I want to get things done. Thankfully I will be going to the physiotherapist next week and hopefully things will get better. My hubby keeps telling me I need a new computer, we will see...

Mittsy and Inky have found a nest of baby mice somewhere in the house, and have brought us two just this morning. Sad for the babies, but I really don't want mice in the house.

I will leave you with a picture Mittsy making friends with our next door neighbor, Loki. He's a beautiful cat, very passive for a male. But he had also found a mouse in the yard, and was playing with it, and wouldn't let Mittsy near it. His Mom said "Loki! Share!" I said, laughing, "Cat's don't share!". Anyway, they seem to be friends, and Mittsy can easily climb over the fence to his yard.

Have a wonderful June week everyone! 
Mittsy and Inky say "Meow!"
