I have been very busy of late and my memory hasn't been worth a flip cause I am trying to keep up with my tail (chasing my tail!) as my dear husband has been lecturing in Europe and now on a stormchase tour! I can't remember the last time I blogged...just looked...OMG! over a month!!! I am like the white rabbit and wonder when or if it will stop.
Thought I would share some of the things that I have been up to....
This is a fairly photo intensive post so for those of you who are just here for WOYWW check out Julia's blog Stamping Ground and see why we post on Wednesday each week. I am in the process of switching out craft/studio rooms right now. I didn't realize how much stuff I own and why I do I don't know...I will blame it on the Fibro and ME and let it go at that. Here is my desk this week..
|My desk this week...no crafting going on!|
|The sight that greets you as you come in the door...this is going to be a work table/sorting area when it gets cleared up.|
|looking catawompus (corner to corner) from the bookcase above to my desk. I was always so envious of the desks that had window so now I do too! Do you think I should put my ribbon back up over the desk?|
|My paper/cutting station. This is an Expedit 2x4 and 2x2 stacked together. Boxes of dies and large dies for my Big Shot Pro you can see on the mid-left there. Plastic paper containers to right house my Graphic 45 papers etc.|
Have I been able to do any crafting...a little. Here is a canvas I made for Father's day next week and a discarded whisky container my husband gave me to play with. I thought that it could be used as packaging for a gift and was really easy to make.
|Lots of Tim Holtz dies and inks here. Love the way the pocket watch mini die turned out with the lens made from Glossy Accents!|
|discarded can covered with Graphic 45 Good Ol' Sport Papers.|
Gardening! Last post I promised I would show you some pictures of the garden and didn't get online again till now. Here are some before and after pics...look what a difference 2 weeks can make! It is currently 92f/33c outside right now and that and a little water things grow quickly!
|Did I show you a picture of my new herb planter? I love the stacked pots!|
|cabbages, onions, peppers|
|look how big the cabbage is getting...awesome! What ever mothy thing has been chomping on the leaves. Bought some powder so they aren't eating my cabbage!|
|corn and watermelons|
|Tomatoes, squash, and sunflowers|
|broccoli, Brussels sprouts and tomatoes, squash|
|onions, potatoes, and tomatoes with a sunflower|
|okra and green beans|
|check this out! a few green beans and a lot of blossom...we will be eating beans next week!|
|tomatoes and blooms...can't wait!|
I am so excited about my garden and the way things are growing. I will try to post more as the season progresses. I have tried 3 different ways of staking tomatoes this year and 2 different ways of growing potatoes to optimize the growing space in the above ground beds. I am very pleased at how easy it is to keep the beds weeded and watered! If I get dizzy or fatigued I sit on the side till I can move on!
Hope everyone has a great day and hope to see you on WOYWW next week!
