WOYWW #639

 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 all! I'm a day late...waiting for the pictures on my computer to co-operate, which I just figured out how to do. But I forgot yesterday how to do it...senior moment I guess! It's taking me ages just to post this one photo!

Here is my desk yesterday morning:

I couldn't even add notes to it this time. Hopefully next week the computer will be co-operating.

 Here are some pics of a project I'm working on. I signed up for a week long workshop with Marjie Kemper to make a Mini Art Journal. Marjie is the Queen of Distress Inks, and I hadn't worked with them for a long time, so I thought I would do a "refresher course"! So here is day one:

Next week I will (hopefully) be able to show you the next 4 days.

Last Wednesday we went on an adventure to Ottawa to the Van Gogh Exhibition. Not real Van Gogh, but a really neat "show" of his art. It was in a big room (unfortunately it was a very hot day and there was no AC or ventilation) with images projected on the walls and the floor. The images were constantly changing, it was very cool!

The "show" was about 45 minutes long of constantly changing, morphing and evolving Van Gogh paintings and quotes, it was amazing! And of course it leads you out through the (very expensive) Gift Shop!

 I started a Keto (low-carb) diet a month ago and I'm experimenting with ways to have bread without having real bread. So I made some "Chaffles". Waffles made with cheese, eggs and almond flour. Here was my Chaffle sandwich the other day:

Cute, isn't it? It's made with a mini-waffle maker!

That's it for me, a day late, I will try to get to as many as I can this week, last week was a bomb :-(

The kitties are doing well, the heat has gone away (for awhile), and it feels like Fall already.

Glad I popped back for a final look or I might have missed you Linda. Great looking journal so far with the Distress inks. I look forward to seeing it finished. That exhibition looks fab too. Meow to Inky and Mittsy. Thanks for your visit. Sarah #14

Ah Linda, I e seen that Van Gogh exhibition advertised here and both times I’ve been unlucky with tickets! a it looks amazing, glad you enjoyed it, I think it’s a great idea. Well done you for getting refreshed in the old distress inks, although to be honest, your pages look professional from here, hope you’ve enjoyed having all those colours and blenders out.
