WOYWW #173

Once again it is a short week...WOW!  Seems like just yesterday or maybe just a couple hours ago since I was posting on WOYWW!  What's WOYWW?  WHY do I keep posting about it?  Well cause I love it and I am so addicted to it time flys by faster then usual.  Wondering if I have lost touch with reality?  Go see What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday's home base over on Julia's blog, Stamping Ground and you will see what I mean!

First off I want to tell you our trip to Missouri was great fun and we enjoyed spending the time with Betty Jo and doing some fun crafting thing.  Unfortunately due to a semiannual crop in the area on the weekend we were there we had a poor turn out at Betty's stamping party.   Betty, Heather, and I agreed that we had a blast even if the turnout was poor and would do it all over in a heartbeat.  I always enjoy taking a road trip with my daughter cause she is so easy to travel with and has a lot of interests similar to mine.

I have been fairly busy this week making cards and doing other fun things that I will be posting as time goes by.  Check out the previous 2 posts about Caffeine Addicts Swap and Society of Stampaholics Monthly Challenge to see the cards.  Tonight my desk has drying bits of 2" x 2" grunge paper that has been painted, embossed, and painted on it for a swap I am involved in on the All Things Tim Yahoo Group.   I would give you the URL but Yahoo got hacked yesterday and over 450,000 accounts have been compromised so....I guess I won't do that till they get them up and running again.  Okay back on track...my desk!
Seems like I always have a hundred small bottles or jars of something hanging around on my desk...why you ask?  Well these are the things I use to most and I hate putting something up knowing I will just be dragging it back out in a few minutes/hours/days.  So my desk stays cluttered.  I bought an addition to the tool caddy in the upper right of the photo.  It is like the Clip It Up embellishment holder and uses clips to hold your packs on the rings.  I am not for sure I like it yet so it sits without much on it.  The square pieces when finished will be used in the Christmas patchwork piece we are putting together.

Remember the post about Halloween Chaos Tag Canvas I was making tags for ?  I got my finished canvas back yesterday and here is what it looks like.
Isn't it awesome!  There were 5 different groups in this swap and 12 canvases in each group.  Stacy Cook made the topper and the charms along the bottom!  Check out her blog, Crop Paper Scissors to see all the canvases.  My tag is the little one top line center with the skull on it!

Well I think I had  better call this done cause Julia has made us all vow to not have long run on posts and this one has definitely run on long enough.  I am going to go grab a cup of tea and do some blog hopping and see what everyone is up to!  Have a great week!

btw...I learned a new term today....Deja Poo...the feeling that you have heard this crap before!  As the presidential election gears up for the final month of politicking it is definitely getting piled higher and deeper here in the state.

  15. Here I was getting ready to leave a message when the storm that came from down your way knocked my electricity out. Since my work space is so small and I don't have a back for my table, I MUST put everything away as soon as I use it, even if it means I have to get it back out 30 minutes later. It's a habit with me. Happy WoYWW from #4.

  27. You've been so busy with all those little squares. Can't wait to see what they turn into. I think we all have our favourite things on our desks that never get put away, no point really when they'll just come straight back out.
    So glad you enjoyed your trip, sounds like a lot of fun despite the lack of people. It's not always the quantity but the quality!!!
    Happy WOYWW

  28. Hi Vickie,
    must say I agree with you, not putting away things I'm going to use again mighty soon. Enjoyed looking around the desk and the went over to the caffeine cards. If you google "Caffeine Overload Polka" you should get a YouTube link to hear the most hilarious choral song. Just love it.
    Thanks for sharing. Glad you had a good trip.

  31. Love the hanging Halloween Chaos Tag Canvas, such a creative way to display the tags you exchange! As for the politics, I just ignore the ads, and vote for the one I like anyway, the ads don't change my mind! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

  32. Deja Poo! I love it. I try to ignore all things political these days because it is all a bunch of poo flinging. The return H'ween canvas is awesome! What a fun swap.

  33. You are one busy lady. The Halloween canvas turned out fantastic! I love how everyone made a tag to make a bigger work of art. Now, I can't wait to see how the Christmas quilt goes. Dani 123

  34. Hi Vickie, Deja Poo - just love it ... here in the UK we have a daily diet of it, even when there is no election brewing! Love the canvas, it's such a fun thing to have. I've caught up with your most recent post and love those floral squares now that they are complete - beautiful. Two very interesting posts so thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.
