WOYWW #134

Here we are, the last WOYWW for 2011!!!  I'd like to say a special thank you to Julia, who makes all this possible.  I first found WOYWW quite by accident several months ago and only started joining in this month.  I peeked in on many a desk,  always drooling at the talent and the work spaces! Go on over to Stamping Ground  and you can visit as many as  you like.  Crafters open up their work desks for the world to see.  
I have a new toy - I bought a Cuttlebug!  I haven't gotten it out of the box yet but plan to this week.  I  also bought a Tim Holtz die and a few embossing plates.  Luckily I'm off this week to play!!!


I'm still playing with acrylic paints.
I started making another project from the 12 Artsy Ornaments e-course.  It's a wreath wrapped in burlap and then you add balls wrapped in yarn, lace, old book print, etc.  Here's the beginning of my wreath.  I wrapped a ball in yarn and glued it onto the wreath.  I need to make some of the fabric flowers.  I found a piece of old lace and cut it into 1 inch strips and covered a ball.  Not sure if I like it so I haven't glued it on yet.
Here's a little doodle I did on one of the 2 x 3 canvas.  Too cute!
Daisy supervising, er, I mean, watching
Thanks for visiting.  I'm hoping to have my wreath done and try out my Cuttlebug since I'm off from work all this week.

Fab desk, you would have to rip off a couple of layers to make them a bit thinner they are too thick, and wet them to get the best embossing result, I don't mean dripping wet I mean moist. Happy new year

ps thanks for following me

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh welcome to the die cutting side...now you have to find two very big storage areas for dies and folders...and you have to make a pact with yourself every now and then to make something without a die or a folder!!! Have fun!

sandee said...

Daisy looks like she is trying to send you a message through ESP....guess that's the way she supervises! Happy New Year from North Carolina!

Ooooooh, you got lots of new toys! Have fun with your Cuttlebug, they are fantastic! -Meechelle #86

Sue from Oregon said...

Oh your wreath looks so very interesting. I do hope you show us the finished project! Thanks for the peek of your task master Daisy too! My best for 2012!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I can't wait to see the finished wreath as I can't even fathom what it is to be like. Have lots of fun with your Cuttlebug! I hemmed and hawed over getting one for a long time and then was so pleased when I did. I find myself doing dies more than embossed background, but I think that is because I'm a HUGE patterned paper fan.

Tuire Flemming said...

Wow, so much new to play with! The doodle is cute, but so is the little doggie! And I love your carpet, too :)

You do know it all downhill from here now that you have a diecutting machine you will need every die out..... such a fun toy - sorry piece of equipment! - though wouldnt be without my bigshot for anything. Have fun playing with the new toys! Thanks for the lovely comments you have left me these past few weeks and I hope you have a lovely new year too.

Shazsilverwolf said...

It is true, no matter how many dies/folders you have, there is always another one you 'must have', lol. You might like my newest post about using long Tim dies without the expense of extended plates too-I hope you had a great Christmas, and have a very Happy New Year, love Shaz xx

Julia Dunnit said...

Hey, just popped back to say that your phone post almost worked...there was a typo on the blogspot address, which I was ale to correct on the link list, so I've left both entries because they both link correctly now. Don't give up on your phone...although I have..can't cope with the teeny tiny text any more!!!!!!

Shazsilverwolf said...

Thanks for visiting! Glad that you have joined our little...or maybe not so little family of WOYWWers. It is like having a new generation of pen pals :). Love my cuttlebug, hope you enjoy yours! Great little canvas. Have a happy New Years! -Amanda #9

P.S. My name of Hettie is my family pet name for me!! Apparantly Hettie is what my father wanted to call me but Mum won - named after Grace Kelly who played Samantha Tracey in High Society!! Oops! That has probably given my age away!!

Robin Panzer Art said...

Love that little red canvas and Daisy is absolutely adorable, a first class supervisor!

Hi there Kay, well you are going to go on one major learning curve as you enter a whole new level of crafting with the dear old beloved bug - have great fun dear friend any help dont be afraid to ask ot google it on You tube that is what I did when I started - and yes you can break your machine if you have a strong hand (My hands are weak so no issues for me but my friend broke hers!)- and love your doodle and your supervisor :D
Thanks so much for popping over, for sharing and being such a blessing in 2011. Happy WOYWW! Love, Shaz in Oz. x #24

Elizabeth said...

Hello Doodle Girl, I hope you love your Cuttlebug as much as I love mine - I get excellent results from both the embossing folders and the dies I've acquired, hopefully you will too. Your desk suggests that you have loads of projects on the go and I look forward to seeing the results over the coming weeks. Elizabeth x #65

MaggieC said...

I love your supervisor. I hope Daisy has read up all the things you need to learn about your new Bug. You will have a wonderful time experimenting with all it can do, and there are lots of people out there who will give you the benefit of their tips ans tricks. Have a wonderful 2012, full of good health, happiness and fun. Maggie #49
