WOYWW #182

We had a great Thanksgiving this year and hope everyone reading this that celebrates the holiday did too!  Dinner was at my daughter's house and she invited some friends to come and celebrate with us that had a 12 old son and 10 year old daughter and it was a lot of fun watching the way that they enjoyed playing games and interacting with the adults!  That's what holidays are all about isn't it...celebrating friends, family, and fun!

Well today is WOYWW #182!  It seems just like yesterday that I joined WOYWW and time has really flown past quickly!  I love all the support and interaction of these weekly desk snoops and have become addicted to the Wednesday interaction!  How long have a been a WOYWW desk snooper poster?  It has been almost 100 posts ago but I really started reading WOYWW and blog hopping in sometime in the fall of 2010!  My first post was on January 12. 2011...post #84!  So do I have your attention?  Wonder what WOYWW is?  Don't do like I did and wait 6 months to make your first post head over to Julia's blog Stamping Ground and see what you have to do and dive right in!! Julia is the creator of this blog crack and has caused so many new friends in my life I can't thank her enough!!
My tea mug is empty and I feel as dry as a gourd so I will take the picture and go type up the post while making my cup of tea!
So my desk this week...
What a mess...    I am working on 3 projects at once in this mess!  No it is actually 4!!!  Two button Fairies, 2 Angels for Jo's swap, 1 Christmas ornament for a swap and the bottle caps are for the bauble ornaments for my tag canvas class!  I am currently expecting 4-6 people but they still have till tomorrow night at 6pm to sign up so maybe I will make up 8 kits!  I think large if nothing else.

In the lower left you can sort of make out the button Fairy I am making.  In the center are the bottle caps for the canvas baubles that I have just filled with a picture and Glossy Accents.  Tomorrow after they are dry I will drill holes in them and make hangers with jump rings.  I will re post the picture rather then linking...
It is a really easy and I am thinking about making a necklace or earrings using the technique!

Okay short and sweet...sort of!  Tea is ready to drink so I think I will head back in the room of stash and do another bit before linking this to WOYWW!

WOYWW #181

It has been another busy week and I am not for sure why it has been so busy or why it passed so fast!  Happy WOYWW #181 I just stopped by for a quick visit before carrying on with my cooking plans for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday.  Luckily this year Heather (DD) is hosting it at her house then I am going to go out to visit my sister and her family later in the day!  Now that is something to be thankful for...lots of food, family and friends and not much clean up and put away after the meals done!

Here is a picture of my desk today for WOYWW!  What's WOYWW?  It is a group of snoopy crafters that get together and blog hop around the world every Wednesday to see what everyone else is up to!  Want to get in on all the fun?  Go visit with Julia at Stamping Ground+ and she will let you know what it is all about!

my desk with all sorts of fun things to look at.  Rolls of Christmas washi tape in the lower right corner.  I bought some more hooks to hang more stuff on the organizer on the right.  Christmas Muse Tokens, some new Seasonal Stains from Tim Holtz, another recipe card for another swap. 
I really enjoy making these little recipe card swaps and I think they will look cute in a books I am making.

I finally got the tag canvas finished and posted it totally done yesterday on the blog.  You can look at it here if you would like to see it all put together!

Speaking of making something good...how about some Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies....
These are really yummy and you can find the recipe on my Fibro blog.

Okay that's it for me today.  I am off to fix a cup of tea and eat a couple of the aforementioned cookies.  Have one...or two cause that is a big bag and enough to share with everyone!


Okay I have it done and scheduled and I had all sorts of issues getting a good photo so this is as good as it gets!  The class is on Saturday at 1 pm at Scrap That at 526 Main Street, Norman, OK and will cost $35.  I am repeating this class on Thursday Nov 29 at 6 pm so you can get a start on Saturday and finish up Thursday or book either or class.  I will have the tags cut, embossed and each tag with its individual components will be in a baggie ready for assembly.  Directions are printed out so you will be able to finish it in your own time if you don't get it done on the day of the class.  I think it is an easy peasy Christmas decoration to add to your stash of family memorabilia!  Call 310-3400 and tell Terri to reserve your seat for this class!

The finished Winter Holiday Tag Canvas!

My friend Tauri is holding the canvas for me so that we can show it off.  I love the way all the tags came together on the canvas!  Here are pictures of the dangles at the bottom!  Couldn't get all the bits in focus with the canvas so here are the hanging down parts.  Fun to make too!

The 2012 plaque was cut out using my new labels die from Stampin' Up!  I cut the numbers out on the Cricut and the leaves are a Spellbinders die...  The snowflake rosette is one of the new Tim Holtz dies this season!  Woo Hoo!  I love those cutting things!  Be they dies, punches, or scissors they are nice!  I used eyelets to hold the chain in place!  The bottle cap on the left was crimped by running it through the Big Shot and I left the little one uncrimped.  I next cut a 1" and 1/4" circle out of some Christmas paper I have and glued it in the bottom of the cap and filled them full of Glossy Accents.  The ornament on the right is a small domino that I colored with alcohol ink then let dry.  I cut a rectangular piece of paper out and glued it on the domino with Glossy accents then put a small amount over the top to make it more durable.
