For the WOYWW deskers here is a picture (or two)! I am putting out a warning that this place is a pit! The desk is an absolute mess to say the least. My attention span seems to relate to making cards not cleaning up so I am piling stuff all over the desk and on the floor around it as evidenced by the second picture. I like having my stuff I use close at hand cause with my back issues having to get up and down out of the chair makes my life living hell some days.
I know I shouldn't use that as an excuse but excuse or not that is the truth. I promise to get it cleaned up soon! Want to see some card pictures.
|A Mothers Day card!|
These next three are same but different. I left the inside of the cards blank so I could put whatever sentiment in them I wanted before I send them off! I love this paper and stamps. The backside of this paper has popsicles and ice cream on it that would be fun for summer birthdays and I think I see some more cards being made with it!
|Don't you love the colors on this card? I used washi tape and pearl tapes to make the "paper" at the top of the card.|
|This is a fun tag and thank you card!|
|Pinwheel card! Love these colors too!|
These two cards were fun to make and I felt they were unfinished but couldn't figure out what I needed to do to finish them up! Definitely have a Southwestern feel too them.
Love this hedgehog die and stamps! they are from one maker and the paper is from another! I have had the hedgehogs for a while but the papers just came out. Love how things come round!
Well that is it for the WOYWW post. Go check out Julia's blog and learn what WOYWW is and maybe come play along!
Thought I would share some photos of the garden and pool this year. Chuck has been super busy in the garden and has planted all sorts of fun stuff...some we are already harvesting!
|Garlic and potatoes are almost ready to harvest|
This is a mixed bed of onions, potatoes, and chard! Kind of interesting how that comes about sometimes!
|These onions are getting big!|
Next bed over is the tomatoes...something seems to be going on with them and we are thinking about pulling them out and buying new plants. I grew these from seeds so I hate to do that but...The corn seems to be having issues this year too! They started out with a fantastic germination rate but everything has been wacky ever since. The plants seem to be growing at such different rates etc that when it comes time to pollinate they will have issues. Trying a high nitrogen fertilizer in hopes of bringing them around!
Beans and Okra are looking beautiful and we are hoping to get a lot of beans to can and eat!
The last raised bed is loaded with cabbage, kale, chard. It is an experiment that seems to have worked out! Chard and kale have been so prolific producing so far this spring...I just love the colors!
|I love these Chard plants...so colorful and tasty!|
We have a single artichoke growing at the end of the garlic planter...two more in a pot on the deck that we are hoping with produce for us this year...kind of an experiment of sorts!
I opened the pool early this year and glad I did because I have already been in a couple of times.
my view from my deck chair!
Have a great week everyone!
