Mixed Media Monday -

Hi everyone!

Just popping in for a couple of minutes. I am at a hotel in Springfield MO while Bob has his truck at Midas. The brake line blew last night as we were pulling into the restaurant for dinner. Thankfully, we were very close to the hotel and could take the back road over.

So with nothing better to do last night than cruise youtube (something I seldom have the time to do) I found someone I'd like you to take a look at. I just love Sam's overall personality. Take the 4-part tour of her craft room, smile at the antics of her furry office assistant and then subscribe to her channel so you don't miss any of the mini book tutorials she has to offer.

Here's a sample...

Wouldn't this lovely, one of a kind piece look perfect in your home or studio? Cindy from Plant's List  (and one of our WOYWW gals) made and is giving away this lovely item.

All you have to do is leave a comment on her post connected with the giveaway. You have until August 30th! So hurry over HERE and enter. Oh, and if you share like I did, she'll toss your name in for a second chance. Cool, eh?

Good Luck, and Creative Blessings!

WOYWW #272 - Purging


My workstation is a bit different this week. I have something in the works that's very Hush Hush for now. But I HAVE to go through a ton of stuff in the studio and sewing room and PURGE - A LOT

This is a stack (including the tub) of magazines I've been saving for the sole purpose of cutting out things for art journals. I want to file the images in pockets of my scraprack for easy access... but that's another post.

So over the next couple of weeks, this is my desk(s) for the time being.

Positioned in front of the TV so I can get some things off the DVR while I purge. The Lobster notebook in the picture is where I've been taking notes from the series Deadliest Catch for a future set of books I have in mind. I didn't have any 'crab' paper but this lobster from 'Beach House' by The Paper Studio serves the purpose... aka being able to find the right notebook when I need it. LOL

These are the 3 areas where I have 'category' papers scattered about. As I cut out a bunch of pictures/ words/ phrases, I sort them to an appropriate category. I will store them in pocket pages when I get my scraprack. In the meantime, I am storing them in page protectors with their category sheet. 

So why am I sharing this all with you? Because this is what we do every Wednesday as part of What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday with Julia Dunnit at Stamping Ground. Everyone can play so come join the FUN! Details HERE.

What's on YOUR desk?
