This week has not been productive or has it? This is my desk today. I cleaned out all kinds of things Saturday, tossed a ton of saved bits. The sort of bits you think you will use and after a year or two have never used. In the blue bag is a a mini book made  into a card for a friend. Will have to show next week.     

Today I wanted to get going on with my journaling, that's what is on the desk. The fuzzy looking page is a gessoed Dylusions page. The writing was not laid  out well. The phrase for all of you straining your eyes is "smile it raises the wrinkles". The page above was another moment of " ???? To do" and so I tried out a new stamp made of sponge. Found it in Tuesday Morning a Claudine Helmuthone, not so good.  

On Sunday I visited my friend, Deanie, who had had a lumpectomy on Monday. We have met once a month for over 10 years to create both all kinds of crafts and chit chat. OK aka gossip. I decided I need to work on beading when I visit her …

WOYWW 31 what a week

Here is my desk. i started to clean it up and remembered there was a  digi card I needed to make for the subdivision ladies Christmas lunch. So I quit the tidy up, very much needed after several days of mini book making. The first mini was made with a paper from Tuesday morning, cheap and dark with no contrast on each side.  I rushed over to Tuesday Morning recalling double sided paper and found some that was stronger and decided to buy  as it is only $1.99 for 20 sheets. The two pink spotted books are some of the ones made with this paper.   It is quite horrendous but since the pages are covered with bits and pieces it should be OK.  The mini books are made from folding.  The one on the right uses no glue.  My friend Deanie had a lumpectomy Monday so one of the books was used as a card. it was stop and start with the "how to" video.  I cannot remember what they say while the video runs.  it's like being in one of those silent movies where they are all chasing around!
