WOYWW #228

WOW!  Just WOW!  I remembered today was Wednesday and I am going to post something...Not a lot but something anyway!  I couldn't believe it when I saw that the last time I had posted to WOYWW was in August!  I could make excuses about how busy I have been and how much traveling I have been doing but I think I will just let it go with an...."I'm baaaack!"

My desk this week...

Not much creativity around here...the mojo took a hike and I haven't had a whole lot of inspiration to do any crafting recently....well that is wrong!  There is a lot of inspiration but not much motivation to do much of anything.  My latest craft endeavor was at Heathers painting class last night where I painted a big harvest moon, tree, and bats to celebrate the season!

I decided not to put anything like Happy Halloween or similar on it so I could keep it up all year if I decided to.  I am happy with the way it turned out! 

Haven't been feeling really well of late and when I do I am playing catch up to get stuff caught up again.  I spent a night in the hospital last month because of some chest pain but after megabucks of tests I still don't know what caused it but I am hoping it never comes back.  I have a doctor's appointment with a specialist on December 3 so here is hoping she will find out what is going on with me. 

If you are wondering what all this is about crafting and desks etc go visit Julia at Stamping Ground and come play with us! 


  1. How lovely to see you Vickie but sorry to hear you've been feeling a bit under the weather. I hope the Drs get to the bottom of it soon.
    Love your tree, it's gorgeous.
    Take care of yourself and Happy WOYWW

    Love your idea to enjoy the painting throughout the year.

  3. Hope you feel better soon, there seems to be a lot of "not feeling good" going around. :(

    Your painting is very cool, and I love the new Tim snowman stamps & diecuts.

    Happy Woyww,

  5. Hi Vickie, I'm not taking part in WOYWW this week but your post caught my eye. Love your painting, very atmospheric. Sorry to read that you have been ill ... hope your specialist makes a diagnosis and that the prognosis is a good one. Take care and I hope you have a good week. Elizabeth xx

  6. You don't have to explain anything but it sure is good to see you back. I'm sorry to hear that you've been in the wars :-( let's hope that all is on the up for you.

  8. Hi Vickie, welcome back. I'm glad you are ok. Love your painting- thats really going to make an impact on your wall! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #29 xx

  9. Hi Vickie, hope your feeling much better. I think I have been off WOYWW as long as you and no real reason either. Mr. Mojo comes and goes, but not always at a convenient time. I really like your painting.

  17. Happy Belated WOYWW, Vickie! I've missed you! I'm very sorry to hear that you have been ill and hospitalized. I hope the upcoming appointment will give you some answers. You should be very happy with your Harvest Moon painting - it's wonderful!! Take care of yourself and hope to see you again soon! Hugs, Darnell #57

  18. Have been wondering what you are up to and how you are feeling. Missing your WOYWW posts. Prayers sent that all is ok. May you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
