WOYWW #182

We had a great Thanksgiving this year and hope everyone reading this that celebrates the holiday did too!  Dinner was at my daughter's house and she invited some friends to come and celebrate with us that had a 12 old son and 10 year old daughter and it was a lot of fun watching the way that they enjoyed playing games and interacting with the adults!  That's what holidays are all about isn't it...celebrating friends, family, and fun!

Well today is WOYWW #182!  It seems just like yesterday that I joined WOYWW and time has really flown past quickly!  I love all the support and interaction of these weekly desk snoops and have become addicted to the Wednesday interaction!  How long have a been a WOYWW desk snooper poster?  It has been almost 100 posts ago but I really started reading WOYWW and blog hopping in sometime in the fall of 2010!  My first post was on January 12. 2011...post #84!  So do I have your attention?  Wonder what WOYWW is?  Don't do like I did and wait 6 months to make your first post head over to Julia's blog Stamping Ground and see what you have to do and dive right in!! Julia is the creator of this blog crack and has caused so many new friends in my life I can't thank her enough!!
My tea mug is empty and I feel as dry as a gourd so I will take the picture and go type up the post while making my cup of tea!
So my desk this week...
What a mess...    I am working on 3 projects at once in this mess!  No it is actually 4!!!  Two button Fairies, 2 Angels for Jo's swap, 1 Christmas ornament for a swap and the bottle caps are for the bauble ornaments for my tag canvas class!  I am currently expecting 4-6 people but they still have till tomorrow night at 6pm to sign up so maybe I will make up 8 kits!  I think large if nothing else.

In the lower left you can sort of make out the button Fairy I am making.  In the center are the bottle caps for the canvas baubles that I have just filled with a picture and Glossy Accents.  Tomorrow after they are dry I will drill holes in them and make hangers with jump rings.  I will re post the picture rather then linking...
It is a really easy and I am thinking about making a necklace or earrings using the technique!

Okay short and sweet...sort of!  Tea is ready to drink so I think I will head back in the room of stash and do another bit before linking this to WOYWW!

  1. returning comment pre-linky. I jumped out of bed at 5am thinking that was Julia's time to post but it was 6am last week! Bother. Well my first WOYWW post was on 14th March this year. I too watched a while before plucking up the courage to join in. Your button fairy looks vvery colourful. BJ#??

  4. Well, those pretty baubles don't look easy to me...I think you should do a step by step (with photos of course) workshop!!! lol
    That would make a glorious necklace pendant.

  10. What an absolutely great idea to use the bottle tops - I saved some over the summer and was wondering what to do with them....and, I bought a new bottle of glossy accents just this week - so it looks like this project is calling out to me.....thanks for sharing, might have a go this weekend.
    Have a great week!

  12. It is sad to see the younger generation have no social skills but thank goodness celebrations like Thanksgiving can bring those social skills back and hopefully make them yearn for more interaction time. I remember growing up in Fiji and having my cousins over to play, we had to make our own toys.
    I cant remember the last time I used bottle tops but I do remember the time I tried to flatten bottle tops in my cuttlebug and broke my first b plate lol

  13. What a riot of colour your desk is.
    Glad you had a great Thanksgiving, I'd love to visit my friend in CA and share that time with the family - maybe one day. For now I will content myself with the Superbowl LOL.
    Lovely bottle cap art - I once did bottle caps at a show for a whole two days - never again - my head was ringing for days after. That was in the early days when you did them with a block of wood and a hammer.
    Take care - Hugs, Neet 29 xx

  14. Hi there. Working on more than one thing is normal for me; I very seldom start and finish one project at a time! Makes it more fun and I never have to worry about waiting for things to dry! Hope you have a good week.

  42. Oh do I know about that kitting up story...I like to start early cos it takes a few hours sometimes and I have always managed to sell my extra kits or some unexpected students arrive, so I rather be prepared...

  43. Hi Vickie, glad you had a good Thanksgiving - it sounds like a whole lot of fun was had by all. Your desk is fab as ever and I do like your bottle top jewellery.

    Like you, I lurked before joining in with WOYWW way back in week 71 - that was October 2010. I've since joined in on 107 weeks with just a few weeks of for holidays, etc. And I am so glad I took the plunge too ... it's given me the opportunity to 'meet' so many lovely folk.

    Hope you've had a good WOYWW. Elizabeth x #67

  44. You have such an interesting looking desk, Vickie. So many yummy looking pens and inks and so many fascinating projects in progress.
    Good Luck with your class.
    There's no going back when you join WOYWW is there, it's so addictive and there's no better way of making new friends. Here's to many many more.
    Happy WOYWW 182

  45. Ah, those are the best kinds of desks -- with 4 projects going on at once, the creativity and motivation just flowing like crazy. Hope you have a successful class and a happy week. ~ Laura #93

    ReplyDelete
  46. Ah, I'm green with envy, as I'm too simple-minded to manage working on more than one project at a time. Four?! My knees are shaking at the very idea.

    Your work is wonderful! I hope the class goes well and you have a great week! Happy WOYWWing! Darnell #52

  47. I feel as if I'm working on too many projects at the moment as well. What with things happening at school and band going into top speed for Christmas playing, life is mad. I'm looking forward to the quiet time from Boxing Day onwards!
    Glad you had a fab time at Thanksgiving, it's what it's all about :)
    Hugs, LLJ #32 xx
