WOYWW #189

Well I'm back again for WOYWW and to thank all my friends, relative and associates for the wonderful wishes for my birthday. I like to say the me and Martin have the same birthday. Martin Luther King that is. It was a wonderful day, lunch with my husband and then off shopping for ME. I got clothes and crafts. Wow-ee.

Here on my desk is a new I learned from Artzology on Ustream.  This is her blog   Ustream is where she demo how to use tissue paper. Very simple and beautiful design.  I had some images on my computer and I printed them out on regular tissue paper.  You can bearly see it but I use the harlequin print on my art journal page with the 60 on it.

This is my Birthday present to me Joan had their Tim items on sale 50% only got the ones I didn't have.
I hope everyone had a wonderful day! Thanks for looking and sharing your comments. So go on over to Julian place and check out the other amazing desk on Stamping Ground

WOYWW #188

Well again it's Wednesday and thank God that I've made it another week.  This week my desk is tidier than usual.  After making my cards for last nights Stamp Addicts swap I clean and put away my products. Yea Me.!  At the meeting our host showed us this wonderful card/booklet.  Being a slow crafter I didn't finish mine at the meeting so here is my finish product. So check out the other desk around the world sponsored by Julia at Stamping Ground

Also on my desk is my 'Art Journal' challenge with Your Paper Pantry-

I have other pictures to share but my computer will not cooperate with me. I am anxious to share my pictures.  Do come back and see what booklet/card looks like on the inside. Thanks Nancy!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Word of the Year 2013

My word of the year started out being CHERISH, then I thought about it and I said I cherish my moments now, so I thought of another word FINISH then I thought I'm not ready to be finish with my life (maybe some projects). So I thought of another word COMPLETE. Now with this by definition carry out action, It is verb, it carries with it so many great synonyms:
I have so many unfinished projects and things in general that need to be completed. I'm going to put this word where I can see it EVERY day and live up to it. My word for 2013 is COMPLETE!

Here I have made a banner of sort to display my word of the Year 2013. I found this neat technique on Jann Gray youtube; Creative Play. It is called Distressed Porcelain. The products I used grung paper letters, acrylic paint dabber-shell pink & sail boat blue, distress crackle paint-tattered rose, Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel-clear, paper, lace and flowers, bling. Check out the yt for directions.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

Happy New Year to all. We made it to 2013 Thanks God!  I have on my desk this week some dylusion starter pages. I'm enjoying using this spray, just learning and watching a lot of youtube. Not much to say this morning so here's what on my work station.  Check out the others around the country WOYWW 187 on Julie's site Stamping Ground
You see I have spend every dime I had to get all of Dyan Reaverley dylusions sprays. I have them all except the purple. The 2 techniques I used here were the smashing of the 2 pages together, ghosting, a stencil by Dyan & TCW, stamping with Dyan stamps.
