I love having a peek into blogger's spaces.  It just gives a little more insight as to "who" they are. 

I've been haphazardly following WOYWW on Stamping Ground for a bit.  Usually, Wednesday's means I'm at work.  I really don't think you care to see a stack of patient files next to my computer every Wednesday. 

Or maybe you would, I shouldn't assume.

Anyhoos!! The paying job is slow this week, so I get to stay home.  And work stuff that does not pay in dollars, but creative satisfaction. 

I had to cover part of the projects I'm working on as it is for Daisy.  I left the wording on the frame as I'm still not sure that is what it will actually be.  Obviously some metal is involved.  And some Glimmer Mist.  

  Did I tell you that I get to meet Daisy and BadSherry (aka Yoda to me) in exactly TWO DAYS?!!  Yep!! I'm meeting up with them at CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) in L.A.!! I'm soooo excited to be able to see all the new crafting goodies that are going to be released and to meet all my crafting "idols" (or at least spot them!) 
 Off to the side is my Bamboo tablet covered with a rough sketch that I was working on for a previous idea. Yep. I like skulls. I am rather fascinated by them. And not in a "dark" way. I think it might have started with anatomy class. Or maybe it was when I was pregnant with oldest kiddo and when he was born, I was just enthralled that his ultrasound picture of his little skull looked just like him.

More of the mess off to the side.  My high tech spider man paint palatte (ha!) and paper stumps, mask, metal, cutter, all used in the current project.
Ok!! I need to quit gabbin' and finish up this project!!  I'll be back tomorrow with the final version!!
Till then..................create a mess!!

looks like an interesting project . . . will I need to smile big?

I'm so flippin' EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!! packing now and lookin at the snow!


I'm so excited for you that you get to go to CHA! And you get to meet Sherry! I feel like I've known her all my life, but we have never met. She is my kinda girl! So glad you fell into the WOYWW habit! I copied Sherry and I'm totally addicted! I love snooping around other people's work desk and seeing what they are doing! Have a great time at CHA! Take lots of pictures and let me see!

Congrats on going to CHA! although I do not envy you, I would rather let all of you do the work and show me what is coming out there in the real world! so meanwhile I will just sit at my sewing machine (LOL)I will be back to look at your updates of your trip. You are taking pictures and posting, right?

Wow your work desk has loads of crafty goodness. I love your storage unit holding ink pads and pens, was it custom made or bought? I can't wait to see the finished project. Ooooo I'm so jealous that you get to visit cha wow that must be an experience. Can't wait to see if you manage to get any pics and also what will be coming out soon.

I can't wait to see the finished project, but I love those flowers you have on your table. Have a wonderful time at the CHA and come back with loads of pictures for those of us who will not be there.

I DID come here last week coz I remember the scissors, I must have forgotten to wait for the code! I said, did the little box come with the pegs ready for the scissors..or maybe they are really meant for cotton reels or ribbon. Hope you had a happy woyww
