WOYWW #382

Welcome to Wednesday!  I was watching TV and almost forgot what I was suppose to do today!  Today is the day we all gather round to hop around the world snooping into each others latest projects and what is on every ones desk.  Julia at Stamping Ground can fill you in on the details of WOYWW!

So here are a couple views of my desk today.  I have been working hard to try and keep it clean and tidy but I don't think I will ever see it happen…about the time I think I am on top of it I just go and mess it up.  This is my desk from last night…it is a mess.  I was watching the debate on Monday night when this project  started and the iPad was keeping me entertained.  
Here is my busy desk today.  I have been working on the Penelope kit from Close to My Heart.
 I really like the papers and the stamps but this kit was to be done using the Close to My Heart watercolors and I think I made a bigger mess then not and I am not really happy with the way the cards turned out!  Doesn't matter really by the time the cards are sent out no one will know what the original instruction pretties looked like!  I made a total of 8 cards…2 of 4 different designs.
 Next were some scrapbook pages that don't yet have the photos on them but will have after I go to the store and pick them up tomorrow.  This kit made all the  cards and the following 3 12x12" layouts.  I did have to use some card blanks but I still think all in all it was a pretty good buy for $25!  I still have a lot of washi tape, ephemera, and bling left over so I might make a couple more pages!

I hope all my friends overseas that are following the recent political race here in the US forgives some of the idiocy that is going on right now.  I was so embarrassed at how Donald Trump was accusing this or that country of various things during the debate Monday night.  I have already voted by absentee ballot so I was just watching for the heck of it and my mind wouldn't have been changed in anyway.

Hope everyone has a great week and I promise to try and get to all the blogs but will definitely make it to those that come and visit me!


  1. Hello Vickie, a quick post before I race out the door. Love your cards and LO. You have nothing to apologise politicians are a law unto themselves no matter what country they reside in. Have a lovely woyww.

  2. Hi Vickie- politicians, eh? I said to Doug, it's funny how they manage to be enlightened enough to vote for a black President, then next time round, find they have a racist bigot as one of the main contenders! Love all your cards and layouts, lovely vibrant colours, just what we need as it's getting cold & grey over here. Have a great week, hugs, Shaz #8 xx

  3. So much happines going on on your desk... the colours and designs make me smile! Yes, the debate was on tv in Holland too but it was the middle of the night for us (3am) I did set the alarmclock though, but when it went off I decided to stay in bed instead of go watch tv... I watched the 'highlights' later in the day - Dutch people do follow all that's going on and talk about it a lot! Happy woyww and a big hug from Holland, Marit #28

  4. Loving the happy pinks and yellows in your projects, Vickie! I didn't watch the entire debate, but I'm scared what will become of the world if DT becomes president. Please you guys, make sure he doesn't! zsuzsa #22

  9. The colours in that kit are just beautiful - so vibrant. You've made a lot of cards and pages out of it. Sounds like it's well worth it!

  10. He is a bit of a loose cannon, isn't he!! Love your layouts. Good luck with the desk.. it's better to be busy than continually clearing and tidying! Helen #2

  11. Love your LO's and your cards. I am not a scrapbooker but I really do like those that you have done. Love the spring like colours that are in use on both of these.
    As for the politicians - you have no need to apologise for what they way. We all have our minds made up about politicians in general and I can only say I am glad I don't have to make a decision like you do.
    Hugs, Neet 1 xx

  16. Hi Vickie, glad you like them. The stamps are by a company called Honey Doo crafts. They only say on the site that they do not post to PO boxes, so I assume from that they ship to you. Here is the link: Hugs, Shaz xx
