WOYWW #494

Wow! We are only six weeks away from cracking the 500 mark! If you know of people who used to be a part of our hop but haven't played in awhile, invite them back! I'd love to see what they've been up to.

Before I show you my desk this week, I wanted to point out a couple of Friday Freebie posts. Some of you know I was working on a Halloween and an Autumn floral arrangement to place on my husbands high chair from when he was a tot. I have completed both arrangements and they are at the following links if you want to see how they turned out.

Friday Freebie - Halloween

Oops.. forgot, I can't share the link for THIS Friday because it's not live yet! LOL If you want to see the Autumn arrangement, please pop back on Friday.

Okay.. my desk for today is all about finishing unfinished projects. If you think this looks staged, you'd be right. But not for this post. I had set everything up yesterday for the Stampin' UP! post then had to leave to take Bob to the eye doctor. The kit is sitting just as I left everything without getting any crafting time in. I've remedied that and you can see my cards from the kit HERE.

Today is the November Paper Pumpkin from Stampin' UP! If you've not heard, Paper Pumpkin is a monthly auto-mail kit in a box. You get everything you need to put together 8-16 amazing projects. Most of the time the projects are card related. Sometimes they are gift bag/ box type items that are great for sharing with others.
Next week, I should be showing the last of the Christmas cards before the table undergoes a huge change, which I look forward to showing the first Wednesday in December. Crossing fingers here. hehe

For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow, I send you tons of blessings for a fabulous day of family, food and friendship. Our oldest granddaughter turns 12 tomorrow. Where has the time gone. Missing her like crazy but they are moving closer to us in a few weeks so I'll get to spend her 13th with her next year. In the mean time, just Bob and I but I am blessed to have him home for the holiday. With his job, we do not always have the holidays together.

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!
