It has been an interesting and busy week this week! I thought that I would have all the time in the world since I was home alone all week as Chuck traveled to Germany on business, Michael went to Czech Rep. on business, and Heather was orienting a new job out of town. Heather and Michael don't live with us but I am usually hanging out at their house or they are at ours. I love having my daughter so close to be able to do crafts and run around with. Norman, OK, USA has a new JoAnn's coming to town and Heather is going to be one of the team supervisors/management types so she has been traveling around learning her job. Unfortunately time flew by and I have very little show for it.
I have finished all my doctors appointments till next month and still have no idea what the hell is going on with me besides fibromyalgia, CFS/ME, and some type of autoimmune disorder. I went to see the disability doctor and he tells me that he thinks I am early onset Parkinson's disease which I hope he doesn't know what he is talking about!!! I am concerned though because my father died from Parkinson's in 1989 and it is a genetic disease. Unfortunately all my symptoms match up with all the disorders so I will just have to wait and see until something shows up proof positive for what ails me!
Anyway enough moaning and groaning. Moving onward to the task at hand.... WOYWW...whats that you say? It is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday where a bunch of artists/crafters fly around the world from the comfort of their computer desk. If you want more information click the link on the left or click here to go to Stamping Ground where Julia Dunnit has organized the hop from blog to blog snooping out all the fun things on peoples desks!
You can see I gave in and bought one of those big pink tape/glue gun things. Michaels had them half price on Sunday and I couldn't resist the temptation any longer. I think I will use it for my desk glue gun and continue using the Stampin Up! snail when I am out and about! I also bought a new MS punch (in the background) that was 40% off. I love bargains! I have laid out some Tim Holtz stamps to work on my Grungy Monday #2 tag as soon as I figure out how to put the tape in that gun handle. Challenges!
I took a class today with Gus (Augusta) Frank at Whole Lotta Scrap. We are making a set of canvas tiles using the Graphic 45 Springtime papers and we are taking the faeries and making transparencies out of them to use on the tiles. Here is a picture of the first one I have almost completed. I still need to put the glossy effects on the flowers and butterflies and then it will be done.
The second one isn't as far along as the canvases were back ordered and we will get them in next week. I like both of the pictures and like Gus said I can see a set of 4 or 6 in this set! I think I will use them in the bathroom where I already have faerie Wallies in place.
Okay a quick share before I quit my ramblings here...While I am trying to type this up both of my cats kept coming up to me to see what I was doing so with the awesome abilities of my iPhone 4 I took pictures of them investigating what was going on. This first picture is of Skiddy, who I would like to say is a very skiddish cat and that is how she got her name but the truth of it is she has a black "skid mark" on her private bits and my husband thought the name SKIDMARK would be appropriate! No way I say and it is shortened to Skiddy!
This second picture is of Stormy! She was given her name also by my husband because of her stormy disposition. I have never had a cat that is so vocal and constantly griping and complaining!
Okay that's it for today. I am going to go surf around the web and see what all the other peeps have lurking on their desks. Hope I haven't bored you with the gabby post. Hope you have a great week!
