WOYWW 305 & Helloooo

Hello WOYWW and blog friends!

Technical difficulties and hands that won't work are keeping me from blogging. I do visit your blogs and leave a comment when possible. Sadly, this year I will not be participating in the WOYWW anniversary ATC swap. :( I don't want to make the commitment and not be able to make the ATC s.

My desk pic today (lots of them) is of the finished mini album. A few still pics and a short video so you can see how interactive the pages are. My first mini and video. Quite a feat and a struggle to finish. I do like how the mini turned out but my next one will be bigger than this tiny 4"x4".

I'm using the original Blogger program on my iPad and figuring out how to import pics is a chore. So I'm late linking up with Julia of the Stamping Ground, our hostess. Sorry there's so many pics today Julia. ;)

Enjoy the tour of the mini. Warning...watch out for the gangly guy at the end. He might offer you a drink of his elixir or take a chomp out of you. Looks like he was hungry and chewed down on the flap before him. :) :)

And the still pics:

Cause of death.

Care for a drink, dear?

Elixir available



Be well and happy crafting! I will update froggy designs as I can with at least pics of my projects.

Nan and the Girls

WOYWW 301

Good morning folks! And the count down to the WOYWW anniversary begins.

I'm linking up with Julia today showing my desk is still in the throws of mini making. I had to turn on the lights this morning so you could see as Mr Sun is slow to make an appearance today. Must be the time change has him confused also. :) Anyway, the mini has been assembled and I'm working on embellies for it.


The second pic was requested by 'T'. She wanted to show you 'her' desk and say Hi to her followers; Bleubeard, Squiggles and Yoda.
Hi guys! ;)



(Pppfffttt....then she went and fell asleep behind the bigshot. :/ )

Well that's it from me today. Be dropping in for a visit as I can throughout the week. Have a great week!

WOYWW 300!!!

HolyMoly almost missed the 300th edition of What's On Your Workdesk! I have met such wonderful peeps and made some fab friends too, as I've desk hopped thru this weekly event. Brought you by... Dear Julia our amazing hostess! You must join in and take a peek what others are working on or not working on scattered around this crafty world.

My desk is a mess! I'm still trying to craft whilst most of the stash is stashed in boxes...in other words not fully unpacked yet...still! One day maybe (yea right I hear Ya say.) I'm in the midst of trying to make a mini album. Like a 4"x4" mini! Four pages cut and folded, TH paper cut and started to distress the edges when the hands said 'time out'. So we're resting them today. ;)

What's on your desk today? I'll make the rounds later tonite and have a peek. Now don't clean up on account of my pending visit. ;)

It's WOYWW time!

No. 298 to be exact. Come join this fabulous blog hop and meet some of the nicest and coolest crafter/artists in the world. All you have to do is take a pic of your crafty/work desk, blog about it and link up with Julia at the Stamping Ground. Then visit the links for a fab peek into the world of others like you.

On my desk today, more painty canvases in the works. Hiding one so as not to give away the surprise. (Oops probably already did.) Some new distress paint tops to replace the plugged up ones and a couple of fab stamp buys, on sale of course. A few cardboard hearts are drying to be used eventually.




No sun today so T is snuggling by the space heater in the other room. :)

I'm off to get things ready for the carpet cleaners. They're going to try to clean up the messy surprise the installers left behind. A blob of silicone glue oozing up thru the carpet!

I was able to pop by all those whose number ended the same as me last week. Hope to do so again this week and visit those who visit me.

Have a fab week everyone!

Crafty hugs,
Nan and the Girls

p.s. last week I couldn't even spell my own name! I was Na G on the link list. This week I will be my normal Nan G. (old fingers that won't work, old eyes that didn't see the mistake :)

Time and Valentine's

Happy Valentine's Day everyone,

I'm popping in with a post to show you the finished burlap canvas I was working on in the last two WOYWW posts. A little mixed media using burlap, distress paints, TH pocket watch die and the 'on the edge' pine trees. There's a couple of close up pics to show you the dimension and layers on the piece.









And lastly, I was asked if any Valentine's would be putting in an appearance here on Froggy Designs. I actually did make one this year. This is my CASEd version of a tag seen on the Funkie Junkie blog awhile back. In fact, I've used quite a few freebies that Linda puts in your order. I wanted to add a metal butterfly but it wasn't to be found. Embellies have not been organized yet.



(As usual for a clearer pic...click on the pic to enlarge for a better view.)

WOYWW 297

Whoa! It's Wednesday already! I'm linking up with Julia at the Stamping Ground, where we show the world our messy or clean crafty desks.

And my desk is busy....yea! Still not totally unpacked and organized but the mojo was working! Sure feels good to be creating. Last week's project is finished. See it perched on the shelf above the desk? It will be delivered tomorrow and then I will post better pictures of it. On the desk I have started a tag for Valentine's Day. And the second picture is of my cutting desk in front of the huge window. Look who has claimed more space on it today. :)






And one more....when T isn't sunbathing on top of the desk she's found this little cubby to sleep in whilst I'm crafting.


I was able to visit those who came by last week and plan to visit more desks this week. Slowly I'm getting back into the swing of blogging and visiting. Please leave your link number so I can find you and I will pop in for a return snoop. ;)

WOYWW 296!

Hey everybody! Lookey lookey! I have a desk! And a very messy painty desk it is too! With limited stash unpacked I smeared some paint on a very cheap piece of stretched burlap. I like my start so far, now to find a heat tool so I can continue. Well, I need to find a lot of my usual tools.



Linking up with Julia at the Stamping Ground to show our work desks on this first Wednesday in February.

Keeping this short and sweet. Will try to visit some later if my hands allow.

Crafty hugs,
Nan and the Girls
