WOYWW #256

WOW!  We are already 1/3 of the way through 2014 and it seems like just yesterday we were celebrating New Year's Day!  Welcome to WOYWW 260!  It has been a couple of weeks since I have participated but thought I would post early and make sure I got it done this week.  What is WOYWW?  Go to Stamping Ground and Julia will tell you what it is all about.

My desk this week...
Not a lot new or different to peruse.  Usual collections of inks, pens, and ribbons plus the bling and flowers on the roundy-round thing.  I am going to have to think of some place else to put that thing cause it is causing me some serious claustrophobia recently...not enough room to do what I want to do! 

I have been busy doing some gardening and crafting this week but forgot to take pictures outside before it got dark so maybe next week I can show you how my garden is growing.  

I taught a class this past week using the Botanical Tea papers from Graphic 45 and Bazill card stock.  I really enjoy interacting with the group that seems to enjoy taking my classes.  This book was fun and simple and could be used as a Mother's Day gift or something fun to lay on your coffee table!
A few pages from inside the book...
The book consisted of 8 "tags" decorated with the papers and the ability to journal or mat photos.  Fun not fussy!

Well Julia says keep it short and sweet so I think I will end it here and see if her post is up yet before I go to bed.  Have a great week!


  1. No, no, no. It simply can't be 260. If it's 260, I don't have my ATCs finished. I see your tiny crafting area is quite clean this week. Happy WOYWW from # 2.

  2. The book is lovely, but I see what you mean about your desk - not a lot of elbow room. It looks a wonderful collection of things to play with, though. Enjoy! Chris # 15

  3. Good to see you back on WOYWW, I keep missing the odd week, so much going on in the spring, which is my favourite season.
    I love a graphic 45 papers but don't have this set....yet.
    Don't forget your garden photos next week, would love to see it and have one of mine on this weeks post.
    Happy WOYWWW

  5. Beautiful book surely a winner too with the class. Take it easy in the garden and don't over do it will you. We don't want you getting sick with the FM flaring it's nasty head.

    Thanks for sharing.

  7. That book looks lovely....even I could probably have a go at that! You sure do have a lot of stuff by your desk, do you know where very thing is?

  8. What a gorgeous little book, Vickie. I love your colourful desk with all the pens and ribbons, but I can well understand that the new carousel is rather large for the space, and a bit dominating! I am sure you will find a new home for it.

    Happy WOYWW,

  13. Beautiful book, Vickie, and your desk--well, I wasn't looking at your desk, was too distracted by all the yummy ribbons!

  16. Beautiful mini book
    Happy WOYWW (on thursday!)

  17. Lovely papers - you have made a great mini book - sometimes I find it hard to cut up lovely papers & actually use them - not just stroke them !! But your book is super ! Ali x #27

  18. I know what you mean about the year going so fast. As we have a gift shop, we have to plan for Christmas early, and we are almost at that point where I have to print Christmas cards and calendars!!! Very nice tag book! Patsy from

  19. The case they made could hardly be weaker because you may presume that Im on a wild goose chase.
