Oh Boy I Can't Believe It!! WOYWW 204!!

Hello again my fellow bloggers of WOYWW!!  I hope that you all had a great week :-)!  I am happy to say that my week went well, I now will be working 3 days a week.. yippee, so the money will not be as tight as it has been lol, and I have the most wonderful bosses that have been patient with me on my learning curve.  More money = more art stuff hehehe...

My cousin has just gotten out of hospital and we are hoping to take a cruise if she is up to it soon, around the Pacific Islands for 10 days.  At the moment we are trying to work it all out as we want to do it sooner rather then later for her.  So please cross your fingers that all will go well and we can go on the cruise and my cousin gets to have the most wonderful time that she deserves.

Without further ado here is my desk....!


Well I selected the desk shot and the face stencil ones at the bottom to go first and they all came up!! Lol!  Anyway I had ordered the fantastic face stencils in from my local craft store....Michelle is wonderful to get these as I am going to use them in my art journal class this Friday, as the ladies wanted to know how to do faces and some said that they can't draw and loved my faces.  So I knew that Jane Davenport had a great series of face stencils, so now the girls can do faces and have no fear how they will turn out and they can add their own touches to make it their own.  Win win I thought!  These faces are a series of 4.. a full on face...a 3/4 face....a side profile and an eye stencil, how cool is that and all for A$23!!  Not bad for 4 stencils I thought!

The other pages I loved doing during the week, at least my kids know where to find me these the office painting away...bliss lol.

Ok I am off to see some great desks thanks to the wonderful Julia Dunnit over at Stamping Ground!  Just got to get my big cup of tea and I am away....!  Take care and until next week, live well and laugh much.  :-)


P.S.  The Jane Davenport Jane girl series you can get here from Artistcellar.

  6. Nice! Love the pages and yes, the faces are cool. That is a pretty nifty trick and one I will have to TRY to remember - It'll probably be one of those "Now where did I see that and how did she do it?" things tho' I know myself too well....

    Happy WOYWW!
