Last week was really crazy, so much to do that i even forgot what day of the week it was so here we go.  (Just changed title to 191)
My usual mess.  Putting things away is not in my mind set.   This is the post for the weekly group What's On Your Workspace Wednesday, hosted by the ever spicy Julia   Working on a Kelly Kilmer class with a worksheet and prompt for every day.  Today finished # 14.  Sticking to the order makes it easier as there is so much to each class. 

The journal is on the upper left and that swirly is a Hambly transparency that a neighbor found somewhere and gave it to me as no-one knew what it was.  The tape is duct tape and that is a roll of polyester ribbons bought 30 years ago in Toronto. I have decide to donate a large selection of my dress fabrics as I no longer make clothes and as wellas back issues of Belle Armoire and Threads.  That is after a couple of friends check it out.  Need more room and different storage for all the stuff needed for journals and other paper crafts.

As promised,here are my button fairies, mentioned weeks ago, the Corky Girls.  They finally few off to Cheryl in Broken Arrow OK.  They thought they were going to Hollywood or Disney Land.   
Their names are CabSav, Zin and Merlot.
The buttons are old British military from the Queens own regiment, their wings are painted acrylic, hair is yarn and the corks are from my nightly pastime, drinking wine. In fact from the Navarro Winery in Philo CA. 

Each had their own document case and spending money, made from and Orbit package.
 This is CabSav (well i think it is)
 this is Merlot,( Zin was off checking the sherry bottle, after hearing it was a guy! )
They were made for a swap in the All Things Tim Yahoo group.

well back to my journaling!  have a good one.
