Merry Christmas #238

Yes there a few of us that will be WOYWW hopping today. Though some of my day will be spent in the company of good friends. We'll play cards, gab and eat too much fabulous food!

My desk as I leave it Tuesday night.

Using some leftover bits of rusted crinoline, might become a piece of a collage. Since I was gluing I glued down a heart and what looked to me like a tree which has a layer of distress rock candy glitter. There's some glassine trees and my pack of files. And a cd which I am attempting to turn into a clock. If I can get the paper to stick!

Here's my inspiration for trying to work with CDs...a clock I won from Karen the Clock Lady. Click here to go to her Blog.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day. I'll pop by tonight and tomorrow. Now if you are clueless as to what I'm talking about stop by Julia's the Stamping Ground for all the deets and links. Then enjoy visiting folks all over the world on this Christmas Day 2013!

Merry Christmas!
from Nan, T and Baby.

T for Tuesday and Tree

Linking up with Bleubeard and Elizabeth for Christmas Eve Tuesday T.

Picture found on Pinterest and while it's a cool pic it is very representative of Christmas for me this year.

Have a wonderful Christmas!

Smile it's Friday!

I missed posting last week but I'm back today with one that stopped me in my tracks and grab the iPad quick!

The Girls have gotten too big now for both of them to fit comfortably in the bathroom sink but that doesn't stop Baby from trying to snuggle with her sister T, for an early evening nap. :)

I'm surprised I got this pic as usually the second I turn on the light they're both gone.

I hope you will take a moment to stop all the hub-bub of holiday prep and Smile with Annie and the Girls and I today.

Happy Holidays everyone!

WOYWW 237!

Yikes! What a mess. My desk tonight is all the stuff my snowbird friend and I played with today. So you'll see some embossed backgrounds with stencil overlays, TH stencils and some yucky tags. Paints and brushes needing to be out away. So dear Julia fear not we have an "eek" desk this week also.

Need clarification of why I'm showing you this desk? Pop over to The Stamping Ground and click on the WOYWW tab for the deets. Then drop down to all the links and have a good snoop around the world.

Wishing everyone a HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

WOYWW 236 & Houses!

What day is it?

It's show n tell day!

Wednesday, the day we show our desks and tell all. Thanks to Mrs. Dunnit who started this little get together a wee bit ago. Do join in and meet some lovely talented folks and see some very interesting desks. ;)

Now I know you're all anxiously waiting saying come on girl get to it...show us those houses! Well, here they are waiting patiently on my desk for their display cases to be finished. Yes, that's right, they'll be put in clear boxes for display. I didn't make the little box houses just their fronts (issues with my hands n all). And they're probably not the Christmas village you might of been expecting either..... big grin!

I've made ..... Steampunk Xmas Houses!

Hope y'all like my steampunk village. So there's display boxes and two more trees to finish. Might get done before the big day.

Sending Happy Holiday greetings to all!

Friday Smiles

Good afternoon my friends,

I'm a bit late linking up with Annie's Friday Smiles and not sure if this will make you smile....I'm certainly smiling. This is my faux rust Christmas tree made from glassine paper. Getting it all put together was quite a feat as my hands were shutting down on me (not working properly). I'm very happy with how it turned out. It'll look great with my little houses. Oh, look there's a house corner. :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Smiles and hugs from me and The Girls.
(oh yes they smile too.)

235th WOYWW

Here we are at the first WOYWW of December!

My desk tonight as I leave it...

While pieces are drying over on the other desk, I'm putting a bit of distress glitter on what I hope will look like a rusted Christmas tree to be cut from this piece of crinoline. There's several jars of texture and embossing pastes, well used and loved distress paints and the usual ink pads and tools. On the shelf you'll get just a little peek at one of my village houses. ;)

Join me over at Julia's place for the links to the best desks and rooms of stash in the crafting world!

I'm hoping I paid a return visit to all who dropped by my desk last week. Apologies if I missed you. Besides working on my village houses I'll be stopping by to say Hi and share a cuppa.

Have a fabulously creative week!

T for Tuesday Thank you's

Good crack of the morning to you!

No, I don't have a sunrise pic for you this Tuesday morning as I link with Elizabeth and Bleubeard for Tuesday T. Instead I have a couple pics of Happy Mail.!

First up from Annie at A Stitch in Time for my guess of what on earth was she making?! You can pop back to this -post- to see what was made. Just look at the adorable little bird with the cutest tiny frame and poem she's sent!

Thank you, Annie - I love them!

Next are some fab cards from Claire at Ham n Mule Designs. She was celebrating 40 and made 40! Two are blank so I can add a sentiment inside and send them to friends. The third one, the 40 for 40 card has the sweetest note inside.

Thank you, Claire! They are fabulous cards and I appreciate your sharing them!

No pic of what I'm drinking as it's the usual diet Pepsi. My first (@ 1:54 am) of many today! Thanks also to Bleubeard and Elizabeth for hosting this fun little Tuesday get together.

Y'all have a wonderful day!
