WOYWW 225!

Wow has this week gone quickly!!  I hope that you all have had a good and crafty week :-)!!  I have managed to do some backgrounds but haven't actually finished a page....ahhhh.  I seem to have a bit of a mental block with wording.  But I am happy with the backgrounds.  This is going to be a really quick post for me as it is school holidays here in good ole' Aussie land and my youngest daughter is at me to get Macca's for lunch! 
Okay here is my desk photo.......
These are the 2 latest backgrounds in my journal.  Just behind are 2 dies that I had ordered and pick up from my local craft store this morning.  Looking forward to playing with them this afternoon.  I must say I LOVE all of Tim Holtz's dies, this one is his Alterations Tattered Garland decorative strip die and the other one is Sizzix Bigz die Albany Rose.
Well that is it for me today!!  I know hard to believe right .... as I am such a talker hehe!
Thank you Julia at Stamping Ground for creating WOYWW it is a wonderful chance to catch up with like minded fantastic people around the world!!  Have a terrific week everyone, now I am off to visit other blogs......ohh... after I get the Macca's or my life will not be worth living lol :-)!!

WOYWW 224!!

Hello everyone!!  I missed last week as I had to look after the grandchildren and they certainly keep me on my toes lol!  But they are great kids and I just love them to bits :-).  Looking forward to early November when number 3 grandchild is born...... Where have the years gone as I don't feel old enough to be a grandmother!!
This is my photo this week of my desk.....
I bought a couple of things this morning after I dropped one daughter off at work and the other at school and called in at the craft shop.  I had left my heat gun there from Friday's art journal class, and of course Michelle had gotten some new things in......not good for my art supply addiction hehe.  The girl stamp is for the children's class that I will be teaching during the schools holidays and the stencil, well I just liked it and the paper doilies will look great on an art journal page or a canvas and last but not least I just fell in love with the stamped words and I can see that they will get a lot of use.  In case you are wondering what is hanging off my is magic tape that I used as a mask with the Gelli Plate and I left it to dry and have used it on an art journal page which is not quite finished yet so will show you next week.  Also the pink shoe which some of you asked about a couple of weeks ago, holds the magic tape.  It was at my local Post Office and it just tickled my fancy :-).

These 2 photos are the samples for the class that I had last Friday.  The girls have a choice of doing a journal page or a canvas.  I didn't put any words on them this time as I felt that the girls could choice to do so if they wanted.  It was a great time and we went well over time!!  But the girls got to finish their pieces and I have to say that they did a wonderful job on them, I was so proud as it is great to see them accomplish something that they felt that they could not do and have it turn out so well!!
I am going to pop over to Julia's at Stamping Ground and check out some of the wonderful desks from around the world...hope you can join me.

Have a fantastic week :-)

WOYWW 222!!!

Hello everyone!!  This is REALLY just a quick post as I just got in the door from working today and I didn't want to miss the fun of WOYWW with Julia over at Stamping Ground and snooping around the wonderful desks of creative people.....So here goes, my desk shot that I have only just taken lol!
In the background are the long Cuttlebug plates that arrived at the craft shop today and I just had to get them on my way to work hehe, so will play with them shortly :-).
This is a page that I have been working on the last couple of days....
and this is the mop up page from it that I thought looked great and added some wording.
I hope you all have a fantastic week and now I will get my big cup of tea and go and visit :-).
