Hello and WOYWW!

Spent a great weekend trip to Dallas and when I got home Sunday all sorts of things started happening around here.  I felt like that little Peanuts character Linus that has the black cloud over his head.  I almost forgot all about it being Wednesday with all the stress and trauma I have been going through the past couple days!

Here is a picture of my desk today...truly today too...5:27 pm CST counts as today still right?   
 What stress and trauma you say...well I lost my damned iPhone and my life rather revolves around the information I get from the phone...especially since I have such issues with my memory and have to have it to remind me to take pills etc. DD told me that the iPhone store had a special for $.99 you could get a replacement 4s phone so I agreed to meet up with her and ended up with a 5c instead.
my beautiful blue iPhone 5c
I wouldn't have put out the money but she and her husband felt I needed this phone as a replacement since everyone in the family has 5 somethings.  Thank you chillin's for the phone!  I thought that since DD sprung for the phone I should take the first pic on it of her...looks happy with that bowl of pasta doesn't she! Heather hates me taking her picture!
This thing has an awesome camera among all its awesome fun!  I got a blue phone with a case that is opaque and has a purple stripe around it.  Very nice!

Visited a new dermatologist this Tuesday and she tells me I may have some more face cancer and took a biopsy right then and there...imagine my surprise!  I wasn't expecting that for sure!!!  I was popping and cracking getting up and down off the table and she said she was going to tell my rheumatologist to test for psoriatic arthritis since I guess I have that in my ears and family history of people having it.  It is caused by an immune system going awry...well that sums me up for sure...and isn't something you want to play around with according to her.  Hmmm...I love getting old...anyway I will go back to the RA doctor on the 26th and see what she has to say!

I have made a few Valentines this week to share.  The tags are made using Vintage Photo, and Barn Door Distress inks and tags I made from old file folders.  This was an idea that has been rumbling around in my brain...a card made using a large tag with small tags in the pocket.   I probably will put a picture on the back of one small tag and a sentiment on the back of the other one.  I thought it turned out nicely!

Another tag was made by embossing the tag with a folder after distressing the tag and drizzling water on it...loved all the water marks.  I then used Vintage Photo to distress the design and bring it to the front.  I used some left over pieces of scrap card and Graphic 45 papers to make the paper bits on the tag. 

Here is a close up of the cupid and the tag fob.
 Another happy thing was a late Christmas present/early Valentines present from my DH.  Isn't he nice to buy me this.  I love the perfume, lotions, shower gel and he gets it for me every Christmas  but this year got away from us.  That's okay though cause this one was bought during a gift giveaway time so more will be coming in the next day or two!  YAY!  Even for a lousy beginning to the week I am faring like a fat rat huh!
Okay that's enough.  Julia is going to smack my keyboard for me going on so long!   Julia likes them short and sweet and this one is anything but...but then they never are if I am writing them.  Julia is the Grand Dame that hosts this desk hop each Wednesday.  Go by Stamping Ground and check out all the fun desks and talks that are going on over there!

WOYWW #244

My desk today.  I had been playing around with making some Valentines  and tags and got called away and this is what it looks like tonight!  A mess.  I am just glad that you can't see the chair and the floor around the desk because it is even a bigger mess.  Went with my daughter shopping at the local Michael's the other day and they had such a sale going on I couldn't turn away.  I think I am going to add shopping for craft products to my list of addictions!  I suppose that would be why I don't have any pictures of finished projects for you to see too...I am out and about too much.

If you are wondering why I am talking about my messy desk go visit with Julia at Stamping Ground and she will fill you in on the whys and how come we are showing off our desks today. 
Okay!  Short and sweet!  Julia will be so proud of me this week!
