A Fast Wednesday

Oh my goodness!  It's Wednesday already!  I lost this week. I haven't been home much and have done no crafting until yesterday afternoon when my picture was taken.  I'm hoping to finish a couple projects today that are on my desk when I took my picture.  And this picture is part of a group of wonderful crafters who are brave enough to show you their desks every Wednesday through the link up to Julia's Stamping Ground blog!  She's been hosting this for 505 weeks. That's right!


So, from left to right.... A pile of Dew Drop inks recently purchased and some card candy I got as part of a swap last Saturday.  Middle.... my project (for a March technique class) sitting on my new Tim Holtz Glass Media Mat (which I'm loving!!!!), and then right.... products and stuff I need for my video later (which will end up on YouTube).  Some day I hope to craft with no special purpose in mind!  If you look just behind the paper in the center you will see what I made last week as I prepare to send Valentine goodies to family...


I have posted these in my Monday and Tuesday posts but here's all 4 together.

Ok, I need to get back to work. Gotta get these projects done so I can move on to other projects.  I have 2 dozen cards that need a good box bottom made so I can donate them to a silent auction for a special group of kids at church.

Oh, I want to show you a great birthday gift from my hubby, my dad and his wife, and good friends, Larry and Angie!


I've wanted a decorative windmill for a while that basically marks where our septic tank is so people won't drive over the pipe to it (it's buried but still vulnerable to very heavy vehicles). This stands 10 feet tall! With our recent weather it's been spinning like crazy! I can just imagine telling our propane delivery service to not go past the windmill when pulling in to fill our tank.  I'm sure he'll be quite puzzled.

Please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the links to other desks!

Hi Carol, I love the TH mat too. Pleased I actually gave in and bought one. I always forget about my Dew Drop pads, and they have gorgeous colours. Love the windmill! Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #5 X

Hi Carol. Those boxes are a great idea - well done. And what a lovely gift - I would never have thought of asking for a ten foot tall windmill - good for you!
Take care. God bless.

It's a pity that windmill can't be hooked up to a battery to create some power Carol. Glad you like the TH glass media mat. Hope you manage to get your projects finished. Happy WOYWW. Sarah #4

Lovely projects on your desk! I love doing my classes and commissions and challenges but yeah, I sometimes wish I wasn't always doing something for a reason. Happy Wednesday, Cindy #20 (great windmill btw)

I think a Windmill is a first on WOYWW! What a great prezzie, Ive always wanted a weather vane for the roof, perhaps I shall suggest it to my hubby! I love the little Valentines boxes, so cute!
