It is a long time since I posted, it  is an emotional heavy week. On Tuesday evening Tripper was found dead on the west deck. At first we thought the feral cat had but now we think the feral jumped him and he had a heart attack. He was laying in his fvourite place. I had let him out just minutes earlier. I went into shock. Well we miss him very much and talk about him.  Thanks to everyone who sent condolences.

So today, my desk

Saving my sanity is the class with Joanne Sharp," Draw Your Awesome Year". On my desk is the journal where we put a drawn calendar every month and fill in each day with a drawing, January, below is almost finished.

I liked Julia's last post about blogging etc. if you are new to this site and WOYWWW check out the Stampingground.blogspot.com

Have a great week. VERY cold here, what a winter.

  4. Bleubeard and I are in shock. I've even cried a bit when I read about Tripper. Bleubeard and I both send our sympathy and condolences. Losing a family member is hard enough, but losing a true loved one is even worse. I know I should comment on your desk, but I would rather sit in stunned silence and feel your genuine pain.

    Happy WOYWW from #1.

  9. I love the idea of a 'drawn Calendar' I am so sorry to hear about Tripper. I have two dogs and I love them dearly so I can imagine how upset you must be.
    Thank you for stopping by to look at my desk and for your lovely comments.

  10. So this is the journal you've been talking about. This is really great, and I did not know that Washi tape on the ends of the pages will keep them from curling. Thanks for the tip and the earlier visit.
