Happy Wednesday and Happy WOYWW!
I was able to show off my work desk last week, but I'm back this week! I'm creating a lot of cards and trying to catch up with my scrapbooking and my desk sure does show how busy I've been.
Why am I showing off my desk? Click on over to the Stamping Ground blog by Miss Julia and read all about it. While you're there, check out other deskers and link a photo of your work area too!
It's a lot of fun peeking into other craft rooms from all over the world!
I'm having a lot of fun creating badges (jpg images) for my regular posts like the TGIF; Thankful Friday posts I do every Friday and also my upcoming monthly card kit posts (I'll share more about this later).
Have a great week!

I’ve said it before and I will repeat, I am not a professional artist instructor, but I love playing with new techniques & products and sometimes (sometimes), I come up with something pretty! Watch the video:
Notes: These flowers are formed by using my finger to “draw” a variety of c’s, parenthesis, or commas...whatever you want to call them to create a flower-like shape and to mimic the variation of colors & sizes of petals. My advice, keep playing around with them until they become something you like. In the video, you will see that it took me a few times to get to that place and even after I thought I was there, I ended up adding some marks using a black ink-ball pen. Watch the video, you’ll see. LOL
Most of all have fun & enjoy the process! After all, we’re just playing!

This week went by fast and I'm always thankful for that, but this week I'm thankful for winter. Now, I know what you're thinking...winter in California isn't really winter, but that's what I'm thankful for...a California winter.
Cold enough to put on a sweater and a jacket, but not necessarily full blown snow/winter gear. I love getting all bundled up with mittens and a quilt just reading or watching t.v. It's so comforting and cozy.
I hope you are enjoying the weather wherever you are.
Let me know what you're thankful for this week by leaving a comment.

Remember, I posted THIS project a few weeks ago? Well, I just received the items from the swap over the weekend. I LOVE all of them and am so excited to use them in my scrapbooking.
I love the hot air balloons and may be prompted to go to a festival or something just so I can use them! LOL
Here's what I got - I also love how one of these matches mine so perfectly!
Have a great day!

Yes, I know Christmas is over but this photo is from 1979 so it's late no matter how you look at it! If you watched my Junk Journal YouTube flip throughs, you saw this spread already. I printed these super cute gnomes from Creative Fabrica and knew I wanted to use them for this spread.
To see the flip throughs of my Junk Journal, click on the Junk Journal label on the bottom right. Each flip through has a link to my YouTube channel.
Hello and Happy Wednesday a.k.a. WOYWW!
I’m working on Valentine’s Day cards and tags and my desk sure does reflect it:

I created this cute beer mug just for my Valentine.
Come join the February challenge at the Love To Craft Challenge Blog (LTCCB). The challenge theme is...Anything Goes and you can link any crafty project!
I love this journal spread. This was another messy spread that I needed to cover. At first I was going to cover the whole thing with either white gesso or white paint, but I decided to put a mask down and then apply the white paint over the mask. I followed the direction from Eulalia Mejia Studios as part of a Taster Session from Willowing Arts.
Man, that was a great taster series and I picked up so much from all the different instructors.
Now it's your turn! Link your project to the LTCCB site before the end of the month.
