WOYWW #492

Good morning, crafters. I skipped last week as I was up to my elbows in apple pie filling. I hope to finish that project today then move on to apple sauce.
Not a lot of crafting as I've been battling a sinus infection, which I think is on its way out. Yay!!

So my desk this morning:

On the upper left of the TH mat, you'll see some mixed media postcards. I took part in a NanoWrimo Postcard swap last week. I make all of my items in sets of 12 so I have a few left over. If you are participating in NanoWrimo and would like one of these, please look for me on Nano - RainLyte - and let me know you saw the swap here. I have to reserve a couple for Angel Swaps but should still have 2 or 3 left for sharing with deskers.

Center of the mat are the easel cards I made for the September Christmas FB challenge. We were to create (4) 3-D cards. This month's (and our final)  challenge is to make (4) Christmas ornaments. That will give me a head start on the art tree I want to put up in the office this year. 

The rest is just this and that I need to put away. Oh yeah, and the ever present box of tissues. I don't know if I've gone through more tissues due to the sinus infection or the vast amount of Hallmark Holiday movies I've been watching in my lazy/ medicated state the past couple of weeks. 

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!

  4. Oh of all the things..i really hate a sinus infection and really feel for you. Pants. So glad to read that you think it may be on the run. No pun intended. We’re getting stuck in to the Hallmarks too...well, I. And on a wet sunday, what’s better! Good for you on the Nano Wrimo swap, for a busy gal, you dont half get a lot done.

  5. Hi Kelly. Gorgeous Christmas cards and very stylish. Hope you have a great week and a lovely woyww, Angela x15x

  6. Hi Kelly Apple pie, and Apple sauce! I made Apple butter, but think I need an alternative recipe! Hope the sinus problem has gone. I've just about recovered from a cough and cold, I hate how these things linger! Have a lovely week Heather x #7
