WOYWW 254 - Finished Feeder

Hello everyone.  Can you believe it's April already and here we are at week 254!  Holy moly guacamole (just throwin' in a bit of New Mexico charm).  If you want to hop on this train visit Julia's blog Stamping Ground.  It's a great way to visit near and far and see what others are working on.  Not only that, you'll see all kinds of supplies!!  Sometimes my mouth drools uncontrollably......

My "desk" is actually cleaned off.  I had to hide everything away as my dad came for a visit.  Now I'll be looking to see where I put everything!
I finally brought my sewing machine to the house.  Over the weekend I bought some fabric to make a blouse - wish me luck!

I finished the bird feeder.  We got rain/hail/snow over the weekend so I brought it inside and got out the acrylic paints.  I'm very happy with how it came out.  Now I'm looking around to see what else I can spray paint to add a bit of boho to my backyard!
Here's a close up.  The neighbors saw it and thought it looks better now than when it was new!

For those of you that are interested, I plan to post about Flat Susan's visit on Friday.

As always, I will visit those that visit me (please leave your number) and those that end in the same number as me.  And as usual, it may not be until the weekend that I get around.

Friday Smiles

Hello everyone.   I am so glad it's Friday.  Between fighting allergies and work it's been a tough week.  Can't wait for the weekend to relax!

I hope the week has gone well for all of you.  I'm linking up with Annie at  A Stitch In Time.  I thought these photos are a hoot.  I hope they bring a smile to your face!

WOYWW 252 - A Special Guest

Welcome all.  I just noticed that Julia has already posted for this week.  Holy moly!  Learn everything you want to know about WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday) at Julia's blog HERE.  It's a great place to meet other creative souls from around the world.

I've had an exciting visitor; can you spot her on my desk?  One of the places we visited is a locally owned stamp shop called Guadalupe Rubber Stamps.  You can visit them HERE.  This is one of the places that Di from Pixie's Crafty Workshop  and I visited on her trip to New Mexico a few years ago.  What wonderful memories I have of Di and Len's visit.  

Here's the desk.  As you can see, Flat Susan talked me into a few purchases.  She kept whispering in my ear but I honestly tried not to listen.  Oh, but her accent won me over.  I will have a full post of our antics in the near future, I promise.

As always, I will visit those that visit me (please leave your number) and those that end in the same number as me.  It may not be until Friday that I'm able to do some serious visiting.  Please be patient with me.

Blog Candy Win!

Happy Sunday!  We've a bit of every kind of weather this weekend.  It's been sunny, windy and snowy.    

This past week I received two packages in the mail.  One is the lovely necklace I won as part of Claire's birthday celebration.  Thank you so much!  Please visit her blog HERE.  She's still having birthday candy!  Not only that, she's quite an amazing person and will definitely inspire you.
Very cool postcard (sorry for the glare).
A beautiful leaf inside the box.
A beautiful round that says Soul and a turquoise bead.
Claire, thank you so much for this lovely candy.  It will be worn often with you in mind.  Since I'm in New Mexico anything turquoise catches my eye.  Not only that, but the word, Soul.  It gave me pause and made me evaluate myself a little more deeply.  That in itself is a gift.
