WOYWW #381…

After reading  Julia's post last week I decided to go back and see when the first WOYWW was that I posted…Wednesday January 12, 2011 and it was WOYWW #84!  Lots of time and water under the bridge.  I used to never miss a week but this year due to illness and other issues I missed more then I wanted to.  I am back now and haven't missed a Wednesday in several weeks.  What is WOYWW?  Click THIS link and it will take you to all the info you need to play!

My desk this week is a mess!  I have been sorting some more and crafting even more.
 Told you it is a mess…I purposefully didn't show the closet behind the desk…I think my Mom used to call it Fibber McGee's closet when I was a kid because so much was hidden and piled high in it.  I used to fib saying I didn't put it in there!
The other desk is a little better.  I have straightened it up after crafting the calendars...the stack in the bottom right is the calendars I have been making for a swap.
Here they are all laid out side by side…twelve 6"x6" cards for the month of July!  They all look the same and yet different.  I had a bunch of BoBunny(4th of July papers) and Authentique (Pride papers and stickers) from bygone years and as I got into crafting the calendars they took on a life of their own and started changing.  What to do? I just gave up the fight and I just went with the flow…

Another project this week was a pumpkin fairy house for some of my fall decor…
Started out with this resin pumpkin and a bunch of fall stuff.  I bought some fairies, a black cat, and an old tree stump made of resin to sit in the pumpkin.  I found these small lights on Amazon and used them to light the interior.
 A little blurry because of the light…so I adjusted the lights and turned the overheads off.
I think it makes a cute scene for the fall holidays.  I had a friend tell me that she thought fairies were suppose to be like small angels…ugh…don't think so.  Closer to demons.

Okay done deal.  I am going to get off the computer and get some stuff done around here before I go to bed.  Hope everyone has a great week.  I didn't make it around to every desk last week because of having too many doctors appointments and other issues but if you visit me I will visit you!


  1. It's good to see you able to join in every week lately! your desk makes me feel better about mine; which is equally busy! Have a great week. Helen #1

  2. Oh that pumpkin is fantastic. I don't care what fairies are, they are pretty and the one in your pumpkin looks so much at home. I would say it is elves who are naughty myself but then I have not studied them all in detail.
    Well, all of your desks look mega busy - just wish I had a big enough room to have all that space.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Hugs, Neet 2 xx

  3. Yep your craft room is hectic but what a brilliant pumpkin especially with the lights. My daughters would have loved that. Have a lovely week x Jackie 15

  4. Ooooh, the fairy pumpkin grotto is fabulous...I want one now!! What a great idea, you're going to enjoy having that around the place 😊💖. And Fibber McGee made me laugh!!
    Hugs, LLJ 3 xx

  5. Love your desk(s)and that pumpkin is just adorable, will bring a smile to your face everytime you look at it.
    Have a good week, lots of laughs

  6. Hi Vickie, love your pumpkin. Isn't it funny how many different ideas people have about fairies? I think both ideas may be right, depends on the fairy! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #18xxx

  7. Goodness gracious how busy are you!! Great projects but that pumpkin has to be the best. I too have fallen off the WOYWW waggon more times than I care to contemplate this last year (and really I should have more time now I am retired) but I do remember popping by your blog each week - hope all is well with you now!! Happy WOYWW Cindy #23

  8. Good luck with the sorting and well done with how it's going so far. I love the pumpkin and what you've done with it.

  9. You have a great space. Love it. I love your calendars. I'm doing a calendar swap too. I love those things! Your pumpkin fairy house is super cute, but I agree fairies are closer to demons not angels. Happy Wednesday, LisaDV #25

  10. Hi Vickie, you and I must've started about the same time, I was a very new blogger. Although this November it will six years, that's a lot of years and nearly 500 posts too. Lot of talking.
    Have one of those closets too y'know.
    Happy WOYWW!!

  11. I want that Pumpkin its gorgeous. I love Halloween & wish that we could buy the many lovely things on sale here in England like what you have in America .
    Happy woyww Jill #28

  12. That's a lot of WOYWW weeks! I love your fairy pumpkin - really gorgeous! Your desks look very creative. Seems like you've been busy with those calendars!

    Have a great week

  13. Oh, that fairy pumpkin is adorable!! You make me want to head out now and get some supplies to do something similar. Of course, I should probably look through what I currently have before I set off buying more supplies. Thanks for the inspiration though!

  14. You just put the pretty into Halloween with that gorgeous fairy pumpkin. Happy Wednesday. Sandy Leigh #30

  15. Happy WOYWW. Your craft room is looking great. I really need to continue with my decluttering, but no energy at all, so I keep on trying to ignore the excesses of stash. I rarely make cards now (I actually ordered some online this week, which was so much easier - should have done it years ago!), so there is a lot of items that can go to charity. We don't do Halloween so much in the UK and particularly in our household. When my stepkids were younger I would do a party for them, and impatiently waiting for the grandkids to be old enough for it! Your Fairy Pumpkin is so cute. Ali x #33

  16. What a lot of fascinating stuff going on in this post - love your lit pumpkin too

    Happy WOOYWW


  17. I looked at your calendars before I read about them so I was bit surprised to see July, but they are cool. Your desk and room are looking good with all that wonderful crafty stuff everywhere. The pumpkin is way cool too. I can't say I ever aligned fairies with angels, but I always thought they were good (and pixies naughty) but what do I know?

  18. Great pumpkin, I wish we celebrated it more here. Busy desk, lots of interesting stuff too. Love the calenars too. Thanks for the visit to mine and have a great woyww, Angela x 16

  19. I just LOVE your pumpkin!! Your "July" cards kinda surprised me but they are cool. And after seeing your desks I don't feel quite so bad about mine, LOL! Thanks for the visit and I hope you have a great day!

  20. Yes, WOYWW is phenomenally successful to have gone on this long. I only joined at the end of 2014, but got completely hooked! You're lucky to have more than one desks! Love your fairy decoration - it looks so magical! I love anything with fairy lights! Thank for visiting earlier, Vickie! Have a wonderful week! zsuzsa #24

  21. Your room is great, and lovely to see all that activity. I love your calendars!

    Happy WOYWW,

  25. I really like your pumpkin fairy house. It looks so festive and inviting at what seems to be your front door entrance. Blessings!

  26. Hi Vickie,
    You've certainly been busy there!
    Your pumpkin with the fairy lights is SO cool! Just gorgeous!
    Have a good week.

  27. Hi Vickie, I love your desks with all your stuff round you.

    Those calendars are fab.

  28. Thank you for your return visit, Vickie - sorry to hear about your recent health isues and hope that the MRI shows up something that can be dealt with and give you some relief. I got my light panel on Ebay - it was fairly expensive but worth every penny, and a pleasure to use.

    Have a good week!

  29. Super calendars and Pumpkin Fairy house.
    Thanks for visiting me BJ #21

  30. that pumpkin fairy house is adorable, good job. I love your workspace, it looks creative busy, i bet the Fibber closet is still piled with stuff, some things just don't seem to change. Until next week, bye for now, Vicky

  31. I love your fall decoration. I think 'fairies' (or 'elves') don't look too cute.. think "Lord of the Rings"... Angels are more for X-mas decorations... I love the twinkling little lights too! thanks for visiting my blog earlier, happy (belated) woyww and a hug from Holland. Marit #20

  32. Okay Vickie... I want to come visit. If for no other reason than see that fairy pumpkin up close. I have an aunt who leaves near Norman. She's been after us to visit for years LOL. Love the calendars. Just go with it. I love that attitude! Thanks for your visit this week. Creative Blessings! Kelly #39

    1. Well Kelly if you come this way let me know. I would love to meet you!


I would really love to hear what you think about my art and my posts. Please leave me a comment and let me know! Thanks for visiting my blog. Vickie aka Okienurse
