What's on YOUR Workdesk? Wednesday--Daughter Edition.

My workdesk is the same dreadful mess, and I can't even show any
of the stuff I've been working on, yet.  So, it's time for What's On Your
Workdesk?  Wednesday--The Daughter Edition!

Earlier this spring, I was delighted to be the fortunate getter of Kim's (aka 
Tabby) giveaway, which was full of art journal inspiring goodies.  The teen
daughter promptly confiscated most of it.

She's already been
away at camps two
weeks this summer,
and started working
on her art journal
in earnest just the
other day.
I don't even know
where the metallic
paint came from,
but it has a great

Here's the funny thing--she found this book while we were out
garage sale-ing one day, and decided it would be perfect for
her journal. I think she's right!
Happy WOYWW, everyone--I'll be having snoop around
later today--and thank you to Julia for hostessing.

Daughters usually pinch their mothers clothes you also now have to contend with having your crafty items borrowed? She has a great journal though.

Love the Daughter Edition. Journalling certainly takes the Art of Living to another level of understanding it, Life that is. :-) Great colours and form.
Thanks for visiting and leaving some lovely words about my ATCs.

Fabulous journalling, stunning colours. If you ever fancy an ATC or tag swap, please drop me a line as I'm always keen to exchange art with other eager crafters x

How fun that your daughter is getting into paper crafting too. The title of the book she is using is so fitting. I buy books at yard sales to alter and then somehow they end up in my bookshelf. Later, I'll look at them and wonder why I bought that book. I've even read some of them.

Isn't it wonderful that she has started journalling so early in life. I do wish I had. SOrry I am late. But, you know all about life. #14

Julia Dunnit said...

See, there's truth in it - these sort of skills are entirely genetic! Love that she's a natural journaller too...imagine, by the time she's our age, she'll have a wonderful collection!
