It's WEDNESDAY... you know what that means!
I really love What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. Hostess, Julia Dunnit atStampin' Ground has created this awesome web of participants that allows us to peek inside each other's studios every week. Just click -> WOYWW to see what it's all about.
Okay, so it isn't pretty and there doesn't look as if there has been much creating. My studio is downstairs and I spent 5 weeks upstairs with my granddaughters - Adrian 5.5 yrs and Abigail 19 months. Not a lot of crafting either. Either Adrian and I couldn't do much because her little sister wanted to be into everything she shouldn't or Adrian herself just could not focus. This child has never NOT been able to focus when it comes to making things. I do say she is much better in the kitchen though and quite proud of herself for learning to crack an egg. After that she wanted eggs in everything so she could crack them. LOL
I will have a couple of items to show you in the coming weeks we were able to do. She copied a SpongeBob card from Pinterest for a Father's Day card. She got to use the Sizzix and chalks so she thought those were cool. Hopefully by next Wed, my desk will have some of MY creative stuff going on. I've spent lots of grabbed minutes here and there on Pinterest and have some lovely ideas for art journal techniques.
The other thing that has been derailing my focus from crafting is my novella, Somewhere Down the Line. Thanks to all of my friends and family who voted, my novella has made it to Stage 2 of the competition. Now the voting begins again. This time you get to read the first page of the story. Help me make it to Stage 3 and you'll get the first 1,000 words of this Contemporary Romance based on the lyrics of a song. If you missed my original post about the competition, you can read it HERE. And if you'd like to see me make it one step closer to a digital publishing contract, then please go VOTE. You can vote Once Per Day - EVERY DAY between now and July 7th. I also ask that you share this paragraph with all your friends and family. I feel like an American Idol contestant. I need votes to move forward in the competition. :-)
Bob is on his way home from Chicago so I'm off to make the house presentable. Presently the rooms have the after-affects of 2 Tornadic little girls. LOL
