I don't have much to show for on my desk today... Looks a little more picked up but still messy! I went to Michael's last week and bought a couple new mixed media pads to use for my online classes and I had them cut one of the 5.5"x8.5" pads in half so that I could do smaller pages. I don't know about you but I have drawers of stuff that I have created and haven't done anything with.
The box of washi tape I got at the same time...$10 for 45-5yd rolls...then a discount on top of that!! See the clear plastic sleeve on the lower center near the half pad? that is the prompt cards from Effy Wilds Journal 52 online group. It is a year long online workshop that is free and every Friday she posts prompts to help create a journal page or this year an ATC. I am going to use one of the 1/2 pads for that! The other half pad is going to be used for Lifebook 2017...got to get started on both. Julia will fill you in on why I am posting my desk if you would just click this link.
No creative goodness to share this week...I marched in the Oklahoma City Women's March with my husband and several thousand other men and women last Saturday so I will share some pictures from that. It was an awesome experience to see people marching for equal rights, healthcare, education, equal pay, equal treatment of all peoples! I was so proud of all the people around the world standing up and being heard.

|All the right reasons to march!|
It has been an interesting week since the march and since the new president took office...times are really radical right now and more then a little scary for me. I have been bullied and called all sorts of names by people that I used to think were friends. I posted on Facebook today a post asking my "Facebook friends" to remove me from their friends list if they voted for Trump and what he stands for. The man is crazy and these people are following him like he is a god!
Okay enough...it has been a horrible week and I am hoping I can get in my craft room and do something creative and get rid of all this negativity...after my therapists appointment today!
