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 as I bought so many tubes of beads, during my bead era my guilt level is high. My carpal tunnel put a hold on beading as beading cramps my hand. This is the current project, not on my work table but in my work bag. Just a little left to finish and then to attach it to a metal band. My closet is full of orange clothes but no bracelet. So this was a way to use up beads and fill an accessory need. So this was worked on this week, it is the accumulation of several visits and about 10 hours of work.
Today while preparing the oven to self clean i wrenched my back. The heat pad and chocolate seem to be helping. A new cure!
Have a great WOYWW. And check out here if you our wondering what this is all about.
