369 WOYWW Nothing!

Today I have piddled around, lack all inspiration and find myself wanting to watch videos.  (heard my muse is vacationing on another planet).  Yesterday, Monday, Youtube app was installed on my iPad and it worked.   Then the search was on for video of how to do all kinds of Collage, Mixed media and several other things that appear on a side bar. Before you know it you have been there 3 hours and that includes lots of fast forward when people talk too much or show too many steps.  Alas it is inspiring watching with lackluster action!

 Hubby is fasting as he is completing an 8 hour endoscopic test counting down.  Two hours before I drive him back to the clinic where they remove it. 

Saw Julie's post and was thrilled to hear how well her recovery is going.  She is so strong and a perfect role model for "coping" with humor how ever rough the scenario.   Now if you are new to my blog then here is the reason for this post "WO"WOYWW"  

Here is my work area the site of preparation and no action.
My main work areas are covered with bits from making this weeks journals and a completed journal cover for the July/August Documented Life project.  Not sure about the white background.

To the left of this table is the area where I have been sorting collage material.  One of my YouTube discoveries, by way of Art Journaling, Summer issue is PackerDi, her collage is great. She has a great video on organizing collage word collections. 

This is the computer desk are  where I try to sit and write. 

This is the sewing area.  Mostly repairs, sewing buttons on and stitching down on paper action here.  The serger needs fixing.

here is the paint area, well organized with photo paper and cardstock in labeled binders bottom shelf.  

So that is it for this the last wednesday in June.  
Time is speeding up as I speed down.

Whenever I start on a WOYwW blog it amazes me that a week has passed.  it feels like no time at all since sitting writing the previous week.  happily,  the past 3 days the sun is shining and the sky a wonderful shade of blue.  Cool mornings and hot afternoons.  Welcome summer and June.  Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary 42 years.  It was while making pages for DLJ that it really struck home despite plans for  tomorrow evening when we are out to dinner with friends. Suddenly felt the urge to produce a card for hubby. This is just a flat card, no back!

This week, concentrated really hard  on not messing around with uTube and Pinterest. Sort of pleased with results.

My Glue Book. First made an altered book; spending all weekend tearing out and then gluing pages 2 to 3 pages together, there are no shortcuts.  On line found a blog by a very OCD English women and with some good pointers for glueing and organizing the how.   Her book was very well done.  When reading her blog later found she had no prior experience.   So here is  the start of mine.  The plan is to add anything that tickles my fancy, no prompts, no preset ideas.  

below are the bits for the DLJ, Pacs to the right the challenge was to work with a shape and repeat it, the hearts and circles where found in my die cuts junk box.  The month long prompt is Unraveling the Past: Embracing New Beginnings  

So here is my desk following 4 days of activity.

So whats on your workspace.  i am hoping that tomorrow we find that Julie is recovering speedly and the op was a roaring success. 
So see y'all tomorrow.
