WOYWW #191

Some weeks it seems the only post I put out is the WOYWW post and other weeks I manage to get 4-5 posts out...it is beyond me what that is about.  I do a lot of crafting but don't seem to take the time to document or share it.  I know all you out there in blog land know what I am talking about!  It seems a never ending game of chasing my tail and never getting anywhere fast.  {{{Now that is a visual that I am sure will burn your brain!!}}}  I am glad it is Wednesday and we join together at Julia's and share what's on our desk or I would probably never post!!  Want to know what I am talking about?  Go on over to Julia's blog Stamping Ground and join the fun! 

My desk this week!  I am working on a calendar easel and just got January finished...I think that is appropriate considering January is over and done will tomorrow. 


I decided to make this a perpetual calendar and used a glue that stays tacky like a post it note so I could change out calendar's each year or make it into a scrapbook page.  I love the blues and the calendar girls on this page.   Here is a closer up view of January...more to follow!

Have a great week and take time to do something fun!  I made it around to over 60%of the desks last week but doubt I will do as well this week.  If  you visit me and leave a comment I promise to reciprocate sometime soon.

  1. Happy WOYWW. What a gorgeous calendar page. So beautiful to have on your desk. How are you feeling today? I have some hip pain that is more worrying than usual, so I will need to be careful to avoid a big flare up. Oh well, perhaps that will mean having more crafting time today - (I always see the bright side of everything). My blogging is the same - either I am busy creating posts every day, or it is just weekly (which happens to be on a Wednesday!). Have a good week. Ali x #34

  2. I seem to be in the same running rut...If it wasn't for WOYWW, I don't know if I would post at all these days as I am so busy kitting and planning and plotting for classes! I am making a concerted effort to try blog at least once more in my week but then Wednesday turns up before I manage...How does Wednesday seem to do that?

  23. GREAT January page, love all the embellishemnts and the colors are perfect. I never thought to make it to be reuseable.........very clever of you!
    I never make it all the way around the WOYWW list, as hard as I try!! I do make it to the ones that comment and to the ones that I follow before attempting the list. Can't wait to see what you do for February!

  25. I love your page! Your desk looks so fun--and I know what you mean. It takes almost as much time to document what we're doing as it does to get projects done! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #104

  30. I know what you mean about not finding enough time to document projects. My resolution this year was to keep my camera in a charged state on my desk and to make a big mental song and dance every time something gets finished to get on and share it. The calendar is ace. Fairy Thoughts makes me an easel calendar every Christmas and I adore them and look forward to them. The great thing is they can be reused too. Have a great week:) Lucy #23 x

  34. Hi Vicky
    I know what you mean about blogging it could take all my spare time and then I wouldnt have anything to share. It's all about balance I suppose. I decided a while ago to just post on WOYWW, although I occasionally do an extra one if I have something special to say or show. I dont think I have ever got beyond 50%.Lovely work on the calendar

  35. hi Vicki I could have written your intro on my own blog this week. Only seem to post now on WOYWW - where does the time go? I don't even think I do that much crafting. Well not the serious sort that so many of you manage. Love the Jan page of your calendar. Anne x #144

  36. I can "DITTO" your 1st paragraph, unreal where time goes and what I so little accomplish. Love your calendar page, just really adorable. It's a weather day here. Wow...45 mph winds, high wind chills for this pm and our area the 6in just blew away!!! so glad of that. Happy WOYWW and Enjoy the week #149 this week due to unneeded computer problems. Sylvia

  42. I'm glad it's not just me, Vickie. I spend my life chasing round thinking shall I craft or blog or had I better do some housework and never seem to get much of anything done. A blogging friend said recently "all you ever blog about is WOYWW these days" well tough I enjoy it, not that I said that to her of course but you'll understand as a fellow WOYWW!!!
    I love your calender, it has such a vintage feel and will be such a joy to start over each year. Have fun with the next month.
    Happy WOYWW
