Not much--What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 300

(Clicky the linky for more info about What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday)

Late to the party, as usual--not a whole lot going on here at the moment, but here's the beginnings before of a little 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inch Irish Blessings book:
The background paper is a sheet from a basketball score keeping book . . . the husband coaches, and the youngest son plays.  I watch, and eat nachos.

Here is a page from the finished book, each line of the blessing has a layout:
collage images from Altered Pages
(By the Way:  If you're working on anything green at the moment, you might want to check out the Reader's Art Challenge at Unruly Paper Arts--there's a nice randomly drawn gifty from Rubber Dance Art Stamps as a prize, so why not, right?)

Next week I hope to show you befores and afters of my actual art room.  It's gotten pretty deep in there, and it's time for a full blown excavation.  Seriously, even the Spot To Work is covered.  Anyway,  Happy WOYWW to you!  And thank you, Julia!

Hi Trisha. I love the idea of a little book of Irish blessings. The page you showed is very appropriate for me as I'm about to go and meet my little grandson. whooppee!
My hubby used to be the leader of a folk band that played a lot of Irish folk music. Every gig they would finish with the Irish blessing (sung):
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Now back to packing my suitcase,
have a great week,
thanks for visiting earlier,

I absolutely love the idea of a blessings book!! And so amazing you still have your Little Kiddles. I remember getting a set of 20 for my sixth birthday. Wish I still had them, they were so cute. Happy WOYWW #300! Sandy Leigh #58

Hi, Trisha, your tiny blessings book looks sweet. It would match up with the Simon Says Stamp blog challenge for this week -- if you're looking for that sort of thing. :) Happy WOYWW and thanks for your visit!! :-) ~ Laura #69

Trisha, this is charming and delightful! Please post photos of all the pages. What a lovely gift this would be - a little gem! I love tiny projects like this.

Thank you for your lovely comment, and I'm glad you enjoyed the photo of Phoebe dropping off with my hubby! Very characteristic attitudes for both of them. Thank you for your kind words about my operation postponement. It was horrendous, but I am glad now that we've got a couple of weeks to rest and prepare without Mum in the house causing untold stress.

Happy belated 300th,
