WOYWW 213 A Late Start

Had everything ready to start writing this on Tuesday and wham! too tired.  Just read Julie's post and decided to get cracking!!!  

My computer desk, a tag to try out Rock Candy Crackle Paint as per TH on the Ranger site.  

It was over 100 F on Friday and Saturday.  My DH played golf, teeing off at 2.30 and 1.30 respectively,for 5 hours each day, He only managed 3 hours on Sunday when is was cooler and humid!.  very stubborn so here is the page in my journal. he has now recovered and off there today and it is a lot cooler  Mad Dogs and Englishmen.

I want to make a series of cards in general themes so that I have them on hand.  This was the first try.

The desk looking west, with journasl scattered around,  the big one in the background is Doings, then the Dylusions journal that I will use when I get Kate's DVD and my swatches journal.

 Another close up view looking towards my computer desk also covered in "stuff"

i made this spread yesterday called "the view from a short person".  I was looking for something and found all these legs was reminded of meeting someone in 5 inch heels who appeared to be all legs!

This was finished this week and relates to locking the keys in the trunk (boot) of my car and not finding a lock smith who could open it until VW road service stepped in and told us who could.  

So there you see it my week.

have a good one and if you want to see what crafter's desks and lives reveal visit Mrs Dunnit  who thought up this wild idea.  

have a great week.  we plan to celebrate the 4th very quietly.  I maybe cooking chicken for Tripper as he eats it.  Probably throws it up but i have yet to find it.

  15. Love your tag, mad dogs page and the all legs and this is also coming from a person that is short. I don't understand how people can play golf hitting the ball for miles and hitting it some more only to get it in the hole a few times and to make things worse it is done in all sorts of weather. Crazy.

    Thanks for visiting and the advice on the floor coverings, it is making me really think.

    Happy WOYWW

  17. I didn't play in WOYWW this week, but had to stop by to see what you were up to. I see Tim has come up with yet another product everyone thinks they need to buy. Never heard of Rock Candy Crackle Paint, but I like the tag.

    The heat is murder here, too. I feel for your hubby. I would NOT have been out and about in that heat.

    Love your card. It is SO you. Now all it needs is chocolate (grin).

  18. I love the way you're using pieces of bodies as collage fodder. Your husband golfing is delightful!
