WOYWW # 385--Ready to Crop!

Hi All,

Another week has lumbered by and I'm sitting here scratching my head like I have fleas just trying to remember what I did!!  It must have been non-eventful...otherwise I would remember it right?  It has been warmer than normal, almost 85 in NE Ohio today.  The leaves on the trees are changing this week. Glorious reds, oranges and yellows.  It won't be long before they are gone with the wind!

Let's move on to the hear & now.  It's WOYWW # 385.  If you're wondering what WOYWW is, hop on in and visit Julia's Stamping Ground.  You can find out more, but please make sure you say hello to Julia and stop on in and leave some friendship to all the other wonderful folks on the list.  We all love to hear from you!

My desk is really pretty clean today.  I've been gathering supplies for a crop this weekend.  I've pulled together some pages that have yet to be completed with embellishments or pictures.  Some of these have been hanging around since last year.  You know the start them and then find something prettier to work on!  I think most of us are guilty of having more than one project going on at a time...that's why they are called CRAFTS....plural of craft.  I mean really.. who CRAFT??!!

Here's a couple of those crafts I made.

This is from the Stampin Up set From the Herd.  I love the whimsical looks on the faces of the animals.  I hand cut the llama as well as the balloons.  If you notice the string without the balloon, when you open the card up..there is it.  Just a bit of surprise.

I did the same for the card below, but I added a little something something on the balloon.

I hope this brings a smile!

See you next week...
Until then
Throw kindness around like confetti!

WOYWW #384--Back from Up North!

Hi All,

Let me just say that I've missed you!  Although our vacation was grand, after a couple day I really did miss home!

Here we are at WOYWW # 384.  Stop on over to visit Julia's Stamping Ground where you can learn all about what WOYWW is and more.  Don't forget to visit all other fabulous artists.  You don't even have to leave home, you can do it right from your armchair.  Better yet do it from your desk and post it here next week!

Here's what's happening on my desk this week:
Way back on Oct 1, I worked the Fun Stampers Journey booth at the Akron Scrapbook & Stamping convention.  Here's my only indulgence....a 13" Misti stamping tool. I've been coveting this for some time now so I decided to take the plunge. Glad I did as I saved myself some greenbacks because there was no shipping & handling. Honesty being the best policy...I bought a stamp too but I swear that's all!

Next to that are the layouts I finished at a crop on the 8th.  Underneath are the ones I still have to complete.

Yes..I was busy.  First the stamping show, then the trip to Canada, home for the dishwasher repair people (that's a whole sordid tale) and then off to an all day crop.

I was kind of hoping to take this week off to relax, but my boss had a totally different take on that thought!

Here's a couple of my favorite layouts.  I love the TV on this one!

Someone told me this was the ugliest paper they had ever seen.  Here's looking at you girl!

These are a couple of my favorite pics of Niagara Falls, Canada.  We took a boat into the falls, walked the tunnels 1/3 of the way behind them and spent plenty of time walking next to them. If you ever get a chance to go...don't put it off.  They are awe inspiring!

Until next week....
Stay hungry for adventure!
