WOYWW #277

My desk is a bit bare at the moment. 

The gallon can in the back hidden under my notepad template is for an upcoming HUGE project. The smaller baked bean can is a part of the same. The stretch of Xyron tape is Recollections labels to go inside those 17 rolls of Halloween Washi tape spools. Yep... we won't discuss how those are a drop the drawer to what I actually own :-) But I have a purpose - I promise. :-D

Happy WOYWW! Haven't a clue what that stands for? Hop on over to Stamping Ground where Miss Julia will give you all the Details. Anyone can join this weekly journey around the world.
The notepads are done and passed around. You can see that post HERE.

Friday is my birthday. Bob asked what I wanted. Aside from wishing he could be home or the HUGE surprise we have coming soon, there really isn't anything I want - well except maybe to see some of my favorite Texas boys in concert but that isn't going to happen.

Aside from these talented guys, I'd also be happy to go to Branson to see a recording of Larry's Country Diner. I love traditional country music - which is what Scott and his crew perform. I'd also be happy to have a number of my Texas Americana artists in my backyard around a campfire... W.C. Jameson, Mike Blakely, Chuck Hawthorne, ... yeah any of the above would make for a very happy birthday girl :-) All are true artists in their genre.

 So I am taking a 3-day weekend to spend in my studio. I'll be finishing up some partial projects and working on Christmas cards. Hopefully, I will have enough project to get the blog back on track. 

So... what's on YOUR desk this week? Leave your # so I can find you on Julia's list and pop over.
Creative Blessings!

Have a lovely weekend love jill x

  19. oooooo washi tape! I am late to the washi band wagon, but I'm now the proud owner of 5 rolls lol. I even used some today! Thanks for visiting my blog earlier in the week! #6

  20. Nice array of stuff on your desk. Sorry I didn't get back to you - was on my way when your post came through. The clay workshop was in Toddington, UK and we had Loretta Lam visit us for one of the workshops. There is one in March over here with Donna Kato visiting - sadly am not going to that one.
