Another Wednesday is about to swing into orbit, another chance to find awe and inspiration from many talented women (& a couple of males)around the world courtesy of Mrs Dunnit .  Check it out; if you would like to join in and see what's on the desks of arts and crafts folks.

My desk today Tuesday June 25.  trying to work on my journal every day.  Most journals are for expressing feeling and they usually seem to be of angst, uncertainty and regrets.  I am at that age when those topics have been resolved or maybe accepted.  So writing is always hard.  I have opted to think of them as daily visual snippets.  on the right is my latest completed tag.

Today, is Tuesday afternoon and I managed to complete a tag  for the birthday of the Zumba teacher.  The idea came slowly and  several layouts where attempted before an idea was formed and the task completed.  Stashed away in drawers  are tons of tags used to practice backgrounds where  the next step is not completed and where I find a …


Here I am again and thanks to all the SIM card problems I had to reset Blogsy. All this techie stuff makes me nervous as I am never quite sure what is going on as the instructions are not quite like my screen.
Here is my work table, what fun I had today and yesterday trying to make a couple of cards, work in my journal and die cutting. I will tidy it up tomorrow after my work out class as I have a doctors appointment and in the evening, Book club and do not want ink in my nails for either of those. So a good time to tidy up
I tried to figure out how to use my new die from Papertrey then stamp it
The wheels go round!  I realized that the stamp was not perfect and cut upper part on colored paper and stamp in a sightly darker shade of blue.
In today's mail I received two ATCs from Sandra in Australia. They were in a small pocket made from sheet music and they are gorgeous. My photo is not doing them justice. Thanks Sandra.

Posting this Tuesday evening. So I can visit every…

WOYWW 210 The work of a woman obsessed

Recovering from our trip to Arlington Scrapbook Convention and Texas Motor Speedway.  Trying to find a home for my new buys and unable to resist the lure of the wonderful Dylusions Journal I bought.

First my ATC swaps received from, Kim Young, on upper left, Ria Gall"s on the right, on the lower row from Krisha, this is us in RV! and this ATC will go in the RV.  I think they are fabulous and so great.  Thank you everyone.

Krisha sent the ATC in the card.  Now is that a fun and guaranteed to make you smile!

And on my workspace today My first spread in my Dylusions journal.  The box behind is what I used to spray and avoid spray everywhere, well it is on me.  Body art.

Here is some of my loot.  I thought everything was very expensive no show specials

Work-space Monday night.  I tried to buy things I can never find in stores like rub-ons and that small tattered floral die as well as clear embossing  powder and Perfect pearls spray Biscotti.

Busy day of creativity here is my journal of Doi…

Home and trying to find my GROOVE

The Sew Create Craft Show (formerly the Great American Scrapbook Show) was a blast once I discovered Tim Holtz was demoing for Stampers Anonymous.  Along with Mario who is like a perfect executive assistant, it was demo all the time except for a lunch break.  I learnt a lot and bought the products I can never find in the stores.  Then on Friday disaster my iPad crashed dumping me on a freeway  construction site, I was using the map app to get me from the convention center to Central Market, happily I navigated my self onto the frontage road and found my way to the store.  It is in the yuppy suburb of Southlake and a CM, employee showed me how to reach Apple Store in the very trendy Mall.  it really is not a Mall, but one of those planned town centers with tree lined street, side-walk cafes and horrendous teenagers trying to be cool as they spend daddy's money.  Apple fixed it but all the stored things were gone like photos on camera roll.  It was the first time I had downloaded ph…
