WOYWW #94

YAY! Today is Wednesday and it is time for WOYWW! If you want to join in or just check out what is going on visit the Queen of blog snooping Julia Dunnit at Stamping Ground to find out what it is all about!

My desk has kind of spread out this week into the kitchen! I am trying to get ready for a scrapbook class on Wednesday and have been putting the kits together tonight. We have a total of 10 people signed up tonight so thought I would make a couple extra so that any late sign ups would be covered.




I love my Cricut and Big Shot and do a lot of cutting for the classes myself instead of having the class do it during the class time because they only have limited time and I like them to leave feeling like they accomplished something. I showed a picture of the layout last week so if you would like to see it again go here. Anyway I have been busy cutting out the eggs, grass and lettering tonight and putting it in baggies.

I want to thank everyone for their kind words regarding my doctors visiting and my health issues. I went to two appointments last week and learned absolutely nothing more than I knew before I went in! I get so frustrated sometimes I could scream but...I will persevere. I have another appointment this week on Thursday! I don't have very high hopes.

  1. Here to wish you well in the medical area..I understand the frustration. I took a peep about your blog..You are one busy lady. Lots of great stuff...all the TH accessories so fun
    Don't have a Cricut, but nice to have stuff cut out ahead..My close friends were from Guymon and Enid. Hope you didn't have more storms or fires.
    Thanks for all the fun visiting you. Happy WOYWW and Good Luck.

  2. I wouldn't mind popping to your crop but there is a little bit of a logistical problem I am afraid.
    Wishing you luck in the medical area. I know what you mean about getting frustrated....

    Good luck

  4. Yes, this is how very often my desk looks like when I prepare the kits for my classes. It's a lot of work, but it is also fun. I love your yummy papers and flowers.

  7. Happy Thursday. I'm just doing a very quick blog dash to make sure all our WOYWW friends get the heads up on the BIG celebration draw over in our blog shop. Please excuse this copied and pasted message but it's the only way I can get round you all this week. If you check out my blog you will see what's keeping me busy :-)

  11. Hi Vickie. Such a great idea trying to ensure that people don't take up time in classes which could go towards producing something nice to take home. Hope the medical side perks up for you honey! Remember to hop over to my blog if you'd like to win some blog candy. I'm celebrating one whole year of blogging :) Di x

  13. What a good idea to do all the cuttng out before to save the time and hassle. If I am doing a run of the save item, I set it all up as a file on my Silhouette, so I can repeat whenever I want. Good luck sorting those medical problems out.

  17. Looks like you have been busy. Hope your class goes well. It looks like you've been using your Cricut to great advantage. Thanks for stopping by my studio.

  18. OH my...I don't have a Cricut yet but you make me want one....I've found that sometimes we need to be our own physician. I found the most relief of symptoms by going on a yeast free diet..not easy but it was worth it. Might be worth a try especially if you've been on alot of antibiotics.

  19. Hey Vickie - thanks for stopping by! Now was that scrapbook class Wednesday gone (23rd) or Wednesday next (30th)? If it was gone, hope it went well, if it's next, hope it goes well.... LOL

  20. Your class sounds like fun! Wish I could take it. :-) About your frustration with doctors....I had the same problems. Took me two years to finally find out what was wrong with me! Thanks for stopping my my desk. God Bless.

  21. Those kits are looking gorgeous. I wouldn't mind having a play with them myself if I lived nearer!!
    Sorry to hear the doctors are being their usual frustrating selves!!
    Take care

  22. Your kits look like your going to have a ton of fun. Keep your spirits high and think positive. It is proven that the mind is an amazing healing tool.

  23. Hi Vickie,
    Good to see your kits getting ready to go. Reminds me of times when I was collating training materials for my work, ...and that is one serious Cricut.
    Cheers,
    Ros

  24. Make sure you make an informed decision before you plunge on the die cutting machine. I'd hate to be responsible for you buying and then finding you didn't really need it. What about your Cricut cutting big pages out for books?
    Now to your desk - looks busy and those flowers are fab. I remember your bright LO from last week - am sure everyone will have fun. Good luck with the medics - am struggling a bit myself so can empathise. Take care.

  25. Certainly looks like your going to have a busy class and how nice of you to do the mundane cutting in order to get straight into the nitty gritty so to speak. Do hope you got some answers
    to your questions on Thursday.
    Living with Monkey is like being with a naughty child all day. I just never know what mischief he is going to get into next. Said he was off to the opticans for some glasses.
    Really late this week doing the rounds.

  26. Getting artwork ready for school pupils used to be intense so preparing for craft classes must be just as busy! Hoe it all goes well for everyone involved.

    Short & sweet this week

  29. How thoughtful of you to do so much preparation for them in advance! This looks like a lovely kit to work from ...

  30. I'm late, so I guess the class went well - I'm with you, I prepare a lot of the cutting and blahdy blah for a class. I once went to a class where we had to cut 12 pages for a star book on shared guillotines. It took half the class time up and I left feeling that I paid to spend an evening doing something I could already do, and with a very unfinished book. Good lesson!

  31. You’re looking very organized there Vickie!
    Love the finished LO and I’m sure your class will have fun…..shame the eggs aren’t chocolate though!

    Happy Crafting!

  32. ohooo sorry I thought I called in coz I went on about you having that fabulous cricut, I'd really love one, when I see them on he telly the presenter always gets it wrong and there's a quick cut away to look at something else and then its all ok when the camera comes back! Are they hard to work?? Bet your class was fab too!!
    (((Happy Very Late WOYWW Lyn)))

    ah! That's what I forgot last time...to type in the code, the page disappears and I Thought that was it!

  33. The whole medical thing frustrates the crap out of me, always has! I do the holistic route as much as possible and feel much better for it. I'm so late you're probably held the class by now so I hope it went well. Lots of stuff goes on beforehand that looks very time consuming. See you tomorrow no doubt!!

    Hugs

  35. Oh how organised are you doing the cutting for your class - lovely. I like your post above about the girls easter egg hanging too - beautiful work! Boys are harder to work with from my experience because they like three dimensional stuff but I've had a five year old art journaling which was fun! Sorry you're not getting answers on the health front - hope you find out more at your next appointment

    Hugs
