WOYWW#139 and Blog Candy Giveaway

UPDATE: I must of been half asleep when I posted this last night! I repeated the paragraph below in its draft form and got rid of the opening paragraph. Oh well old and tired minds are not reliable! I have corrected this now and won't worry about it any longer...What was the original opening paragraph? Haven't a clue!


I just went over 100 followers on the Okienurse blog so I have decided to offer some blog candy up to all my followers! To be part of the drawing you have to be a follower and leave comments. I will put everyone's name who leaves a blog comment each week in a hat and draw. So if you comment every week you will have 4 chances to win in the drawing. I don't like jumping through hoops so I am not going to make you do so either! If you aren't a follower and want to be please join us but don't do so just so you can get the candy! OH! What is the candy?...not for sure yet. Might be a product of some sort or might be something I have made...might be both. I will be posting that soon. Drawing ends on February 28 and I will announce a winner on February 29. How cool is that...leap year! I will ship overseas so everyone can have a chance to win! Good luck!

Hmmm....lets see! What's on my workdesk today? As you can see it is a mess! I have had a very busy weekend. I made a couple chunky ATC's and a tag for a challenge on the creativeblock-stampersanonymous a Yahoo group. I think I am going to use that tag and these two for a class next week at Whole Lotta Scrap.







I decided to get a little girly and made this tag using the Sewing Room dies and the Stampers Anonymous stamp set Haberdashery. I thought it looked a little girly anyway!













I didn't stamp a sentiment on this tag because it could be used for male or female, birthday or any other occasion. I will take a box of sentiments and let everyone choose what they would like to use. I need to get a light box and learn how to photoshop pictures because this tag is black and white but you wouldn't know it from this photo!!!







This is the tag from two posts ago that I am planning on using in the class. It has stamps from 3 different stamp sets and lots of fun things! I really think it turned out well.

Anyway these are the 3 tags for the next class on February 9! Come join in the fun!

If you are interested in visiting desks all over the world to see what is on them then go over to Julia's blog and learn about how you two can snoop around desks legally!

  32. Hello Vicki, sorry to hear you have ME too, its nasty! The finished Tags looked great. unfortunately i am unable to 'get out' much so don't have anyone to lend crafty things too, so have no worries about lending out my books, I find them really helpful, just to 'flick' through them, when I start on the laptop i always end up spending far to long on it and then can't manage to craft. Hope that you have a 'good' week and feel as well as possible. Lou x

    Those tags are gorgeous. As you know, the sewing one is close to my heart.
    As for photo editing have you ever tried Picasa? It is free and you can download it through Google. Just search Picasa and follow the directions. It is great and easy i.e. not too much faffing and no layers!!
