I remembered to come back to day and I did make it around to a lot of the desks last week!  Hopefully this is a good sign that all things are on the mend...I am feeling better but I didn't get much done this week in the way of crafting.  I used my energy available to grocery shop and I even got some spring cleaning done in other parts of the house...not in the craft room though!  Everyday a little bit stronger...

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter and chased eggs, visited with family and friends, and over all had a great day!  My daughter in law sent us pictures of the grand babies enjoying their day!  Charlie is 2 (actually Charles Arthur Doswell V), Hannah 5, and Teresa just turned 8.  Beautiful grand babies!

They live in Clarksville, TN so we don't get to see them too often...only 700+ miles away!

MY desk this week looks forsaken and piled upon...  I made it to a special sale at the local Michaels and bought this soda crate for 70% off and all the stuff in it for 50¢ each packet.  I also bought a couple other things but have already put them away...what??? something gets put away around here!

I heard the comment about what is in that soda crate!  Lots of fun stuff.
I have a doctors appointment soon so I best get off of here and get dressed to go.  I will be back and meander through the desks later today....Go check out other desks at Julia's blog...Stamping Ground and join in the fun!

It has been about 2 months since I played on WOYWW!  Haven't done much in the way of crafting or anything truth be told.  Be sick for most of the time and then I just haven't felt like doing much of anything.   Somedays it is difficult to get out of bed.  I am hoping with the advent of warmer weather and longer days it will motivate me to get out and about more.  Not being a wimp and usually plodding forward whether I felt like it or not it has come as a real eye opener the lack of ability to get out and about.  I was averaging 2-3 doctors visits a week in February/March and that was all I was capable of doing.  I think we are on the mend now (husband has been sick this past month too!) and hopefully life will return to some semblance of normal soon.

My desks and craft room has suffered horribly with my lack of care.  I would take things out and not put them back and the floor and anything horizontal has stuff piled and stacked on top of it.  I did clear off a spot on the desk so I could make a few cards over the past couple months.  Got to get busy and get it cleaned up!  So this is my crafty has been in worse shape of course...

this is a picture looking directly at the desk...Sad story I have killed off 3 computers since January!  I went out and bought a new iMac and I am waiting for a friend to come over and take the data off this old one and put it on the new one then she is carting it off for parts.   YAY!
The picture on the right is facing the ends of the desk cause I thought someone might want to see that is there...I have so much I said I have been piling it up!  The file cabinet top is loaded with all sorts of bling bins and other fun stuff.

I have been doing a little card making but it takes so much effort and while I could normally turn out all of these in a day it has taken me months...  Sad!  
This card states my feelings about WOYWW and missing you guys!

Love this coffee cup and embossing folder!  It is so much fun.

I bought a box of cards and this is one out of the these prints.

All of these cards were made for swaps on ATT or on a Facebook group called Papercrafting Swappers.  I really have fun playing with these folks and enjoy the cards they send in return...

The Celebrate card was a color scheme prompt and fortunately in my stash I had just the right papers and flowers!

A Flowery Hello!  This started out as the color prompt card but after looking around I decided this was a good Hello card and made the celebrate card to fulfill the prompt.

Two more design sketches...The endless summer card is all die cuts and no stamping as per the huh!  The gate fold is a banded card...

The Blue and black made up into a nice mens card!

Last card is about time! 

Hope to make it around to everyones desk this week...  You should come join WOYWW and check out Julia's blog too!  If I don't leave a big comment just know I was thinking about you.  Hopefully I will have more to share next week!
