WOYWW #540

Good morning, friends

No desk to show you today as I'm headed out to a writer's conference. Bob is holding down the fort and babying HoneyB, who still hasn't had his surgery. I'm stopping at the vet's office on my way out.

Kind of lost the creative mojo yesterday after receiving word of my oldest sisters passing. All the blood work and everything she's had done in the past couple of years, no one picked up on the fact she had Lukemia!


This is Country Bob. He is a musical bear, though for the life of me I can not remember what it is he sings. I call him Country Bob because he does sing a classic country tune and Bob bought him for me. He enables my bear collection (over 250 at last count).

I'm off. I may be back in here next week, no promises. I'll try to get 'round to blogs to see who else brought their bears to work.

In the mean time,
That's it for my desk this week. Who's Miss Julia and why am I here?  When you are done visiting me in the Ozarks, please hop on over to Stamping Ground  for all the details. Miss Julia has a long list of other studios you can peek into. No standing on an up-turned milk pail to look in the window. We open the doors wide and welcome you.  Please leave your number and you'll be among the first on my list. 



Creative Blessings!

If you missed Part 1 of the product used, you can see that video HERE

WOYWW #539

Good morning, friends!

I am so sorry for not getting around to everyone a couple of weeks ago.. and for not linking up last week. I had the base post in place so all I had to do was add the picture but I just couldn't get there. Was too busy trying to get work out of the way so I could craft with my sissy all weekend.

I'll try to get to folks this week but no promises. Bob is on his way home and I have World Cardmaking Day on Saturday. I've planned a big all-day event on social media.

So here's my desk this week:


Yep, it's still the filming table. Bear with me.. I have  a plan.

In the mean time, here's a close-up of the project you see on the desk:


These will be the Daily page markers in my October Daily Junk Journal. I hope to do a video early next week.

HoneyB still hasn't had his surgery. Pain meds are his friend. He's hating the almost endless kennel time but I have to keep him from using that back leg as much as possible. Before, we were waiting on my vet to be released to 'supervisional duty' from his surgery. Now the vet that would actually be doing the surgery is on 'maternity leave'. Dr. Johnny became a new dad on Sunday.  We're hoping for next week..... just in time for me to head to a writers conference.

Next week is 
Take Your Teddy Bear to Work day.
 I hope to see bears on lots of desks next week!

Looking for a STOP button here at some point.

That's it for my desk this week. Who's Miss Julia and why am I here?  When you are done visiting me in the Ozarks, please hop on over to Stamping Ground  for all the details. Miss Julia has a long list of other studios you can peek into. No standing on an up-turned milk pail to look in the window.

CARD CHICKS - Sketch Challenge

Good morning!

As you know, I belong to a fabulous group on Splitcoast called Card Chicks. Each month one of us sends a packet of inspiring goodies to everyone else in our group. Then, on the 21st of the month, we post our creations to the group.

We had a member drop out so September became a Sketch Challenge.

We were given this SC Sketch:


Here's the card I made:


I used the 3rd smallest square die from Layering Squares and 'fussy cut' pumpkin images. I placed them on the strip of 5-1/2" x 1-3/4" Mint Macaron.  The large leaf below is cut from Whisper White then I did a light wash in Mint Macaron using the Aqua Painter.

Tomorrow is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday and do I have a surprise... well, I hope :-)
Anyone is welcome to join us on this fabulous, fun blog hop! Click HERE for all the details.

MIXED MEDIA MONDAY - Ooh La La Vintage Treasures

Good morning! - well, for a few more minutes. I've been busy behind the scenes.

Almost every morning when Bob is gone, my sister and I get together on line to watch YouTube videos. They are usually junk journal or pour painting in subject.  Kitty has found her peace in junk journaling and is coming out as an entrepreneurial artist in the Pour Painting community.

Later this week she and Steve are planning a 4-day weekend trip up here to celebrate my birthday in Bob's absence. I don't mind spending them alone, really, and this year I'd already planned to do nothing but craft all day. Now, I'll get to do it with my sissy.

This morning, I directed her to a video by Ooh La La Vintage Treasures. The video is about collage embellishments. I told Kitty I have plenty here that maybe part of our crafting time, we'll put a bunch of stuff in the middle of the table and see what we can come up with.

Here's the video that inspired us:

FRIDAY FREEBIE - A Very Brady Renovation!

Have you guys seen the HGTV series on renovating the Brady House?


This first video gives a bit of the behind the scenes. I've not watched this particular video but I've been watching the series on HGTV.

For those of you who do not know... only the EXTERIOR of this house was used for the shots. Everything else took place on Studio 5. There was also only a single floor to the exterior house, whereas we saw a two-story house on the series.

When the house went on the market for $1.5 million, the only serious contender was Lance Bass. HGTV knew they needed to do this project so they put in an offer for $3.5 million. That in mind, I can't even imagine what they put into making this original single story ranch into the two-story house we grew up with.

As well as watching the renovation shows, I've watched the 'meet the kids' episodes. It's cool seeing where the kids are as adults and what they're up to. One of my favorite 'meet' episodes has been with little Bobby Brady aka Mike Lookinland.  I'll leave that video below.

So tell me.... Did you have a favorite Brady? or a favorite episode?
For me.. .I adored Alice. I'm a lot like her. As to favorite episode.... Davey Jones, hands down! LOL


Have a Great weekend!

THURSDAY THREADS - All About the Pink!

Good morning, crafty friends!

I'm trying to get back in routine so Thursday Threads has returned.

I can't remember if I told you my plan to make afghan's for the grandgirls' beds here.  Abby is all about pinks and Adrian is usually about black's/ reds but she went with blues for hers. I haven't even purchased her yarns yet, but pinks for Abby was an easy go.


I started with the variegated from Red Heart then chose a lighter tone to act as a bridge between the variegated and the white. I do two rows of the variegated then one row of pink, one row of white then repeat.


I'm not sure what possessed me to do a single crochet. I know Adrian's will probably be a double. The single gives the blanket a heavier weight, which they probably won't need. 

Each afghan will be a little larger than an afghan but smaller than a twin... perfect fit for their ottoman - turned - single beds from Wayfair.

I do most of my crocheting in the evenings when Bob is home since that's our tv time... if I can get the cats to lay in his lap instead of mine. That isn't always an easy feat. They are such mama's babies. LOL
