  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! 

Hi everyone! I was MIA last week because of computer problems, but glad I am back on track today! I will start with last week's desk:

And today's:

Not a lot of difference, but I did manage to sew my signatures into a book, and put the cover on that I wanted. This piece of fabric is something I made eons ago, and had it tacked to my Bulletin Board. I'm glad I was finally able to use it!

Here is the finished journal:

I just need to fill it up!

Here's my beautiful Granddaughter at 3 months old, she's getting very expressive!

And Mittsy in the crab apple tree (in front of the bird feeders)...

This is a spectacular photo I took of last Thursday night's full moon over a church tower...

And our first Hollyhock blooms from seeds I planted THREE years ago! We finally got 3 stalks, and two were diseased so I cut them down. I think I will try fresh Hollyhock seeds next year!

And finally, Inky, who hasn't been getting much press recently, so here she is!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week, "Meow" from Inky and Mittsy!

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all well, safe and happy! We have had lovely weather here up until a day or so ago, when the temperatures have gotten hot and very humid. Time to stay indoors and craft for awhile! Yesterday I went for lunch with a very good friend that I haven't seen since last summer, when we braved an outdoor lunch together. This year will be outdoors again, but now we are both fully vaccinated! We had a lovely time!

Here is my desk today:

The red flower thing on my page is a workshop I did for my Art Party weekend, the only one I've tried so far. It used real flower petals, watercolours, and torn paper, then the idea was to take pictures, and use the photos.

And I actually managed to make 2 journal pages this week!

The wings and the hands below were both part of a Mhindi set of stencils. The people are Dina Wakely. The words above are Tim Holtz.

The above was funny, I completed the writing on both hands, half the quote on each hand, when I realized I had done it upside down! That is why the complete quote is on both hands! I guess I was prepared for the worst!

I promised you last week I would show you my completed written in journal this week, so here it is. I use a Kodak Mini to print my photos. 

At some point I will make a new journal and pop in the envelope with the little journal in it.

Well that's it for today, the cats are outside for a little while but today we have a heat warning, so they will be in air conditioned comfort pretty soon! Have a great week, and "meow" from Inky and Mittsy!

Hello everyone! posting quite late today as we just got back from Niagara Falls last night, and I had to catch up on a lot of things this morning.

We had a great trip, saw lots of friends we haven't seen in a year and a half, and got to see Granddaughter Jasper twice!

But here is my desk this morning,

Not much to see since I haven't been home all week, but I did start a new journal page using an envelope that a bracelet came in - I couldn't resist! And on top of that is the box of photo papers for my Kodak Mini-printer that I use to print photos for my journals. I took it with me, but I still need to add a bit more before I can share last week's journal with you. Until then, a few photos of the trip:

visiting Jasper!

On our way to Niagara Falls! Driving by the CN Tower in Toronto

We stay with a friend who lives in Niagara Falls, so we often don't go and actually visit the Falls as we have been so many times, but this time we took a White Water Walk along the gorge that the (about half) of the water from the falls goes down, and then into the Lake Ontario, where it then flows into the St. Lawrence River and finally into the Atlantic Ocean.. The other (about half) of the water goes to power the hydro electric plant. 

The Canadian side is very well looked after, safe, and spectacular. It was very loud, very beautiful and super energetic! But if you look at the last photo you see two people on the American side. We were on the Canadian side, and looking across the gorge is the USA. They are on the US side. We have no idea how they got down there, super dangerous, the man had been standing on the rock jutting out into the water in the middle just before I took the photo. They seemed to go behind a rock, so perhaps there are some stairs or a ladder of some sort. Niagara Falls Canada and NF USA are totally different. 

My friend and I went for a day out in this beauty of a BMW with the top down - so much fun! This is her new toy! I buy stamps, she buys a BMW...Hmmmm...

and on the way home -

3 generations!

So that's it for me today. Next week I hope to show my finished little journal, and maybe another project as well. I just joined a FB group of a weekend of art projects hosted by Marji Kemper, hopefully it will help my Mojo!

The kitties were so glad to see us yesterday, but they were well cared for while we were gone. Inky stuck to me like glue the whole evening, purring away, and Mittsy did the same with hubby!

Have a great week, Meows from Inky and Mittsy,
