WOYWW #163

Happy Wednesday to all my blogland friends...  I am so excited to be able to participate in WOYWW this week from my own desk and my desk top computer.  My laptop is state of the art but with my arthritis I sometimes have problems with the touch pad and really need to by another wireless mouse to use with it.    What's WOYWW?  Well in a land far, far, far away, a woman named Julia started a weekly get together of a bunch of artist/crafter types that love to show off their desks, their latest projects and snoop around one another's desks from the comforts of their own homes and chairs.  Go call on Julia's blog, Stamping Ground and she will give you the deets. 

my art journal for the 5th week of Summer of Color ice cream flavor Wild and Reckless Sherbet!   They chose mainly ice cream flavors from Baskin Robins and the advert reads...
"A green apple, blue raspberry, and fruit punch flavored sherbet party. 
Fruit has never had so much fun."
- Baskin Robbins
Thought I would share a picture of me that my husband Chuck took at the lower falls in Yellowstone!  Awesome country! Check out previous posts for more pictures!

Well that's it for this week.  I will try and make it around to most desks but won't guarantee anything...may take all week!

  7. I've really enjoyed travelling through the US with you!! That's what I love about WOYWW - I've met friends and seen places that I will never get to in reality. I'm soooo jealous that you got to Yosemite, that is one place on my bucket list for sure. Great shot of you too!

    Hugs, LLJ ~70 xx

  9. Hi Vickie, wow, those colours in your journal there are right up my alley! They are practically the same colour as my dolls. Those bright colours sure give a lift when you need it don't they!? Bet you were a lovely nurse.Most of my friends are either nurses or teachers..(helping kinds of people). I have enjoyed your photos too. This WOYWW travelling is such fun.We are getting to know each other a bit.I'm only new to this, but gradually the same people are chatting to me, and e-mailing.that's nice isn't it?!!

  13. It must feel so good to be back home after so long away!
    I know you were able to take your crafting with you I bet there were times when you needed something that you didn’t have with you.

    Loving the bright vibrant colours in your journal…….it’s going to be a hard page to miss!

    Great picture of you, by the way.
    Thanks for visiting me this week.
    Happy Crafting!

  14. The sherbet looks really wild ;) but the colors on your pages are great! (I see my dolly there...:) )
    Fab pic from Yellowstone. That must be a wonderful place.
    Happy WOYWW!

  15. Totally with you there - typing long comments on the iPad is hard work! Glad I finally sorted out a way to use my desktop that works (although I have to use like three different browsers to comment on all the different sorts of blog and their different setting!)

    Love those BRIGHT colours! And B&R ice cream too. That takes me back....

    Happy WOYWW

  19. Happy WOYWW. It is great getting back from a trip. We could do with some of that sunshine - although, fingers crossed, we should have some 'proper' summer weather from Friday onwards. Ali x #113

  20. What great colours. Love the pages. I really must get in to art journalling...
    Thanks for sharing,

  21. Fabulous colours the ice cream sounds yummy too have a good week
    Janet 68

    Glad you've had a good trip. Thanks for stopping by!

  23. Fabulous colours in your art journal - great picture too. Thanks for sharing - Sunshine Girl No. 58

  24. It's good to see you made it home OK. Glad your car made it, too. Nice photo of the Ice Cream color. I noticed a particular attraction to Baskin too. I admit, I don't think we have one in Wichita, although I NEVER go to the mall (either of them, honest). Happy WOYWW from #6.

  25. Your desk looks like you are having lots of fun! Thanks for sharing. -Meechelle #121

  26. Hi Vicky,

  29. Nice to see you home again, Vickie, after your wonderful time away. Love the photo of you at Yellowstone! That's somewhere I'd love to visit one day. Awesome inks, aren't they! I think the randomness of the spray is one of their charms, but there's nothing to stop you taking the lid off and using a paintbrush to put them where you want!

    Thanks for your visit.

    Happy WOYWW,
    Shoshi #3

  30. Super colours and a great pic of you too. Looks like you had a great trip I've been reading your posts. Take care, am not doing WOYWW this week, not been too good so there isn't anything on my desk to see! Zo xx

  31. Those colours are amazing. Just gorgeous. Almost nicer than ice cream! Thanks for stopping by; I hope you're having a very wonderful WOYWW.

    cheers, rachel #7

  34. Hi Vickie, love your bright journalling page bet you had fun with that. I too would love to visit Yellowstone part, my parents made the trip last green. I would have loved to have sneaked in their bags!
    Have a great Wednesday, hugs Erika. #100

  35. I cannot use the touch pads on laptops to save my soul. I have a corded mouse to plug in with mine. Mine is so old but it was worth every penny I paid for it (none).

    Those are some seriously bright and unnatural colors on your journal pages. I can't help but wonder if you eat BR's sherbet do you poop the colors of the rainbow? That is some crazy stuff. Fruit has never had so much fun!

  36. Really enjoyed all of your vacation photos, it must be nice to be back home however! I have to,....ok..don't HAVE to use a mouse with my lap top but am wayyyyyyyy to lazy to not carry one with me wherever I go! lol

  37. Great colours - must be uplifting to work on ! Thanks for stopping by earlier ! Ali #53

  38. Hi Vickie,

    I'm so glad you had a safe trip! It's always to get back home though. Love the photo of you at Yellowstone. I've enjoyed looking at all the photos you've posted about your trip - very fun.

    YES, that would be cool if we met up on your way to AZ. You'll have to let me know what route you are taking. Once your plans are finalized.
    Thanks for visiting me already!!!


  39. Yummy colors! I shared your other blog with a group of art buddies because we have one member with Fibro. Your blog is so informative, especially for those of us who don't really understand the symptoms. You are doing a great service for many!

  40. Love the colors used on your art journal. That scenery behind you is fabulous. #30

  41. Love the colours on your journal and if that was ice cream I would be having an aniphalixis right now LOL Love the photos of yellowstone, a place I really want to visit one day and I am serious, beautiful scenery and such wonders. Thank you for sharing and it is nice to have a face to the name.

    TTYS Eliza #11 again

  42. Wow those colours are good enough to eat!
    I used similar colours once when I painted a silk scarf.
    Great to see you back at your desk and hopefully your remote mouse will help ;D

  51. I think it is a sign I need to dive in and create an artjournal. I am seeing so many lovely ones (yours included) during my snoops around the globe.
