Word Art Wednesday and WOYWW!

This is the last layout in the atc sized, hand bound mini book.

Many thanks to Word Art Wednesday Challenge for the invitation
to guest design with them! If you have never played along, the only
requirement is your art includes an inspirational quote or text.

And here's my what's on your workdesk Wednesday, which you
may be able to tell is less scary than last week, as I was inspired to
do a little spring cleaning. And actually, I'm still at it, so it may
look even better than this by now! Don't worry, it won't stay that
way . . .

The "desk" in the living room is actually a bit worse, as things are
making their way back to their proper places:

Along with the spring cleaning, I'm packing up a box of goodies
to share with you, so watch out--a giveaway is in the works!

Good luck on the spring cleaning! I try, but get distracted by what I'm cleaning before I ever get anything accomplished!

Happy WOYWWing!

Lol, I can see how you could lose a cup of coffee there! I never spotted your funky base cabinets last week, very groovy. A good tidy up is good for the soul I always think, it clears my mind too I find. I relinked at No.30 after screwing up the link at No.2!

You are so right - craft therapy helps with all that ails us! Thank you for your kind words.

Your desk looks like it's having a good time. I've just started making ATCs and am really enjoying it.

Love that 'ticket' book! What a great idea! It's really unusual.

And you are right, those phone calls are NOT fun! Quite sad and heartbreaking at times but such is life....I need to stay strong for the sake of my teenager... whom i may add seems to handling things a lot better than his mum aka me! *sighs*. I'll manage though.

Thanks for dropping by

Take care

Don't let the peer pressure bully you, mind you I think it has bullied me.

Shoshi said...

Wow! That's a busy creative space lol! Hope the spring cleaning goes well. It always has to get more messy before it gets tidier, doesn't it.

Thanks for your comment on my blog, Trisha, and I'm glad you like my knitting! It may look complicated but it's really quite simple - you never have more than 2 colours going at once, and they are simple geometric patterns easily drawn on graph paper, and easy to follow. The colour is everything of course!

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #12

Angie said...

Your desk may be tidier but it is still wonderfully busy.xx17

It's good to have a big clean every now and then. I keep promising myself to re-sort my stamps but the scale of it puts me off.
Love the mini book and all those great tickets.

MaggieC said...

I have about half a dozen cards to do urgently for this month, then a major tidy up is called for to give me space to make a different mess, with stamping and painting. Thank you for visiting earlier this week. I am so late returning visits that we shall be back to Wednesday again before I catch up. I am hoping that the worst of the bee problem is over. Have a good week. xx Maggie #7

Huh! I had a problem finding the right blog to comment on as you have so many blogs! Still I am here and I love what I see! Your desk is interesting with lots of goodies scattered around - also your ATC book project! You are a very busy crafter!

trisha too said...

Ugh! I know what you mean, that has happened to me too, but I never thought to check my settings and make sure "My Web Page" was in there. Anyway, FIXED IT!

All those blogs kind of snuck up on me, what a crazy thing!
