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 everyone tomorrow on WOYWW coming to you all thanks to Julia at Stamping Ground.

have a Good week of Crafting


  1. I always ink or paint on my fingers when I go to work out--sometimes it just won't come off!

  2. Hi Monica, sorry to hear you've had some technical problems - hopefully all sorted now.
    Great desk and ATCs and really love your bicycle card. Happy WOYWW Gill x #89

  3. Very busy desk. Your journal looks great (mine still virgin...) And that is so cool the bike wheels spin, great idea! Have a great rest of the week.

  11. Hi Monica, looks like you are having an inky time with your journal. I tend to wear ink and paint quite well, not only on my fingers but clear up to the elbow LOL. Have come home form a day in town to find I still have glitter on my face!!! LOL

  12. Love that bicycle card - and the atc's you received are gorgeous. Great shot of your desk, looks to be a fair sized craftroom you have there.
    No, I did not leave the top of my dabbers - they just dried up, even the ones I had never opened (ie still sealed) so I am trying to reconstitute.
    Thanks for the earlier visit - Neet xx

  13. Hi Monica

    have a great WOYWW and enjoy the rest of your week

  14. Oh Monica, I wanna come play in your warm and welcoming room. Your desk looks fab..and tidy enough, frankly!

  15. Oh, your room is so colorful! And I scrolled through some of your other posts and saw your whole house is very colorful. :) Bright colors are so cheerful and I love them but can't pull them off very well in my house, though I do have a more mellow yellow in my living room on some accent panels. Anyways, love the bicycle card as I have so many bicycle stamps but haven't figured out quite how to use them yet but I like how you did so I may CASE that idea, if you don't mind. Thanks for stopping by my desk already and leaving me a comment! Deeyll #141

  16. Did my comment go missing or is it waiting for approval...Deeyll

  17. Gosh. I don't want to hear about Sim cards. My card may have died due to my friend's printer. Not a good thing. But your desk is all cheery and bright this week (as usual) and I love the ATCs Sandra sent you.

    I don't get those dies that stamp and cut. I don't know much about dies, anyway, so I will leave all that to you. But I DO want a bicycle (not a real one, something I can stamp or cut out). Have a great slightly late WOYWW from #17.

  18. Hi Monica, so pleased you liked the atc's and I loooove your workroom. It is amazing I just wish we were a tad closer and I could come and craft in your room. I suppose we will just have to be happy with an annual swap and the occasional chat.

  19. I love all the stuff on your desk, especially your art journal... gets me all curious and I would love to flip through the pages! Thanks for your visit to my blog the other day. Happy solstice and happy ~ very belated ~ woyww. Hug from Holland. Marit #70

  20. A lot late this week, but had to come tell you that you have the most awesome crafty table! Thanks for stopping in to say Hello!
