I have spent the past couple of weeks being not as productive as I wish I could be but then that is life in the Doswell house and just getting a meal together or a load of laundry done can be a challenge. Speaking of challenges, I am late on a couple that I subscribe to each week and I have all sorts of ideas that I would like to put to paper but not the energy it takes to complete them. Ah yes...life! I keep telling myself that it will be better tomorrow! Since my desk is rather boring you need to step over to Julia's blog Stamping Ground to see what all the other WOYWWer's are doing this week. WARNING: it is addictive!
Here is a picture of my desk this week. As you can see it is loaded with all sorts of 'stuff' that I have managed to accumulate but not much in the way of productive projects. My daughter is a lead supervisor/manager at a new JoAnn's that has opened here in town this past week. I signed up on JoAnn's a while back for coupons and last week they sent me a 20% off everything including sales items so I went in and loaded up on things I just can't live without. There is a stack of DCWV(die cuts with a view) paper/card stock pads that were on sale at $999 from $19.99 that I applied that coupon to and I saved 70% on each pad. The grand opening is next week so I will probably apply the 50% off coupon to something then. My daughter tells me they are going to have $10 gift cards for the first 100 people who come to the store the first 3 days of the grand opening so I will have to be up and about early those days!! Heather knows me better then that! I am never up and about early!
Here is the only thing that I have made/created since last week. It is another attempt at Steampunk. I stamped the clock and the woman's head then covered it with the accent glaze and after several attempts I doubt I will use the distress ink to stamp with again cause the glaze makes it change colors. I like the card and composition and I think I will use it for a woman's thinking of you/all occasion card!
Thanks everyone for all the kind thoughts regarding the birds last week. I think you may be right about them being ready to leave the next cause I have seen a definite increase in the number of birds around this week. I was so distraught thinking I was a baby bird killer for sure! Anyway I off now. I plan on visiting all sites this week if at all possible. If not it will be my goal for next week. I am such a snoop though it bothers me when I can't see everything!!!
