WOYWW #351

Getting a late start this morning. We had high winds and snow blow through early this morning, taking out my internet. The snow has now stopped and almost all melted away but the wind is still blowing at a pretty good clip. 

While I waited, I worked on putting more of the Mixed Media side of the office in order in between working on my Tim Holtz revisit tag. This is from Day 2 - 2007. I should have this one ready to post on Friday.I have acetate snowflakes drying and the mottled blue tag base. That large SU paddle punch did not want to turn loose of the acetate snowflake but the Martha Stewart one was a dream. I think partly due to less intricacy in the detail.

And now that the Mixed Media side is shaping up, I should be able to get back to working with various art journals. Those will make an appearance on the occasional Mixed Media Mondays.

That's my desk? What's on yours? When you are done visiting me in the Ozarks, please hop on over to Stamping Ground where 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. We won’t touch.. just look. J  I can't wait to peek but if Bob is home for I might be late again getting 'round. Pleaseleave your number and you'll be first on my list.

Creative Blessings!


  1. Hi, Kelly! Going back to visit (or revisit) TH's tag inspiration from years ago is a great idea. Sorry to hear you've been having wintry weather. Our winter here (rural upstate NY) has been very atypical -- we're getting rain today and any other year it would be snow instead. Happy WOYWW from Laura #60

  2. Hey Kelly, don't you just love TH. I can hardly wait until his new line of "crayons" are available to add to my Distress collection. Thanks for sharing, drop by for a visit if you get a chance.

  3. Kelly, glad you are making progress on your room. I have troubles with punches, all of them! LOL. I haven't post my Blog yet, so no number, I bet you can find me later. Have a wonderful week.

  4. Brr, the Ozarks are sounding chilly! Like the colour you've got going on the tags...acetate snowflakes are a great idea, but as you say, a b to punch!

  5. Looking back at old craft projects is a great way to get the creative juices flowing again .
    We often forget about past techniques .

  6. Happy WOYWW. I nearly became a complete TH-addict! I started collecting the inkpads, but realised that I needed to go complete cold turkey a few years ago, or I would go bankrupt. Now, I think I only have 2 in my small collection of stamping stash. Ali x #42

  7. Lovely tag. I like blue. It's one of my favourite colours. We've got snow here in Michigan too. Brrr and yuck.

    Have a good week

  8. Hi Kelly, pleased to see you had more success cutting snowflakes from acetate than I did!
    Have a great weekend

  9. It's cold here too but nothing like you're experiencing! Your crafting is reactive to your surroundings I guess, as those snowflakes and icy blue make me feel chilly, just looking at them :-)

  10. Hello Kelly. Sounds cold and wild... and here we are on Thursday morning in Wales, and it is snowing in the rain!! Sounds like you are having fun re-doing something you made all those years ago. Hope you are really pleased with it when it's finished and dry.
    Take care. God bless.

  11. Love acetate in punches but it is a difficult medium to punch, looking forward to seeing how they turn out.
    Thanks for visiting my desk already

  12. Great looking busy desk this week! I saw the finished tag in the first post and it turned out very nice. Hasn't the weather been strange this year. Here in OK it has been in the 80's already a couple days and my DH has a lot planted in the garden already. Have a great week....or what's left of it! I am a bit late getting around! Vickie #66

  13. It will be a beautiful winter-tag!
    Have a great weekend!

  14. I love peeking into your work space! I cannot believe your weather. Sunny skies here in the desert :-)

  15. Winter has still left its mark by sound of it Kelly... Love the tag and TH combo ..they do go together. Have joined your blog.. hope you might return the complement too :) thanks so much for popping over and really cheering my day too!
    Thanks so much for inspiration, Shaz in Oz.x
