WOYWW - Neocolor II crayons and fun stuff in the mail!

Hello everyone.  It's Wednesday and that means it's one of my most 
exciting days to surf blogs.
If you don't know what I'm talking about go on over to
where it all begins, thanks to our leader,
the fabulous and amazing Julia!

Here's what I've been up to
using my neocolor II crayons for the first time!
I'm taking an e-course on sketching and art journaling.
These are supposed to be cupcakes.....
the first one looks like a 
mug of beer to me!
Love the banner
I also had a nice little package waiting for me from Vickie over at
Okienurse Paper and Ink Therapy.
This is what I won!  I can see some fun in my future!!
Thank you Vickie!  I am so excited about everything you sent. 
 I especially love the card.
 Love that embossed King of Clubs!!
And guess what else was in my mail?
I love your writing Julia!
Can't wait to show this button off!!!
Thanks for visiting!  I found that visiting the blogs that end
in the same number as me worked out quite well.
I also try to visit everyone that visits me!

Peace,
Kay

At first I was having a terrible time leaving comments on blogs tonight. They didn't want to post. NOW I get "service unavailable for at least two times I try to visit. I'm geting really frustrated.

I've never used neocolors, so they are new to me. Happy WOYWW from # 7.

At first I was having a terrible time leaving comments on blogs tonight. They didn't want to post. NOW I get "service unavailable for at least two times I try to visit or leave a comment. This is my second try with this. I'm geting really frustrated.

I said I have never used neocolors, so they are new to me. Happy WOYWW from # 7.

No offense but I thought that first one was a mug a beer.... or perhaps I just need one, lol!! Lovely gifts from Vickie and I'll wear my WOYWW badge if you wear yours, you never know, we just might bump into each other!!

A mug of beer with a cup cake gives me a laugh. Nice windfalls from Vicki, too, and the WOYWW button.
Have a fine week.

Darnell J Knauss said...

I think it's cool that your drawing looks like a mug of beer! We see lots of drawings of cupcakes, not that many of beer! Have fun with your new colors! (I've no # yet as I won't post until tomorrow; just getting a headstart on my visits.)

Sara S. said...

I like that little yellow cupcake. It looks like a fluffy coconut covered yummy!

Happy WOYWW!

okienurse said...

I must be missing something...I didn't see a beer mug and had to go back and look again! OMG! Brain freeze! Glad you liked your prize. I got my badge too and I think we should wear them to all crafting events just to see if anyone recognizes what they are...speaking of that I am going to go put it on my apron right now. Hope you have a great week Kay and thanks for sharing! Vickie #48

kay said...

Neet said...

Hope you enjoy your new course but I haven't used those crayons myself. Not that I am a great colourist!
Now what is the secret of enlarging photos - suddenly blogger stopped dyou (or me I should say) doing that.
Hugs, Neet #4 xx
ps thanks for putting your number - makes life so much easier, (but I could find you anyway I think).

Minxy said...

Hi Katy
What a lovely selection of goodies you have, I've not properly played with my neoII's yet, how are you finding them?

Redanne said...

Love that little package, especially the skull and cross-bones. Your drawings are so cute. Regards, Anne #66

sandra de said...

Love the little cupcakes and at least you are keeping up with your on line course. Isn't it wonderful to get little gifts in the post.

Neesie said...

I didn't realise you could do e-courses in drawing...oh my where have I been for the last 12 years?
I must look into this pronto!
We're always such tough critics to our own work ;)
Have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks for letting me take a peek at your desk. Neesie #37

VonnyK said...

Love your "beer mug", you must have been thirsty when you drew the cup cake. I think they are lovely. Is it hard to do a course online, I've never been game to try one.
How lucky are you, getting that lovely prize from Vickie. Even luckier, you have THE BADGE!! Okay, so I am going a little green right now :)
Have a gret week.

Jacqui said...

I love Neocolor crayons

Doone said...

snap - aren't those pin badges fun?

I have visions of people all over the world running into each others loving woywering arms!

it only looks like a beer mug because the base of the cake is long...put a piece of paper over it covering one third of the bottom of the beer mug and it will transmogrify into a cup cake...really trust me...

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Ah, but you see, I've enjoyed looking at your photos of your area and surroundings, cos it's highly unlikely that I'll ever get there either. So we'll just continue to post great photos for everyone to share! Deal??
Lovely stash from Vickie, have fun playing with that little lot!
Cupcake...beer...cupcake..beer - what a dilemma, which would I go for first *sigh* :D
Hugs, LLJ #68 xx

I love your painting. Who cares if a cupcake looks like a beer. What a great combination. Nice goodies there - well done on your win. I too am visiting everyone ending in no.5 this week, I may come back later and visit the ones in between - there are soooo many now. Enjoy famfa #125

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Happy WOYWW, good to see you participating. Now pass me that beer, would ya? I love your banner too. What are neocolors? No, don't tell me, my world is happy without them. GREAT prize you got there and that embossed king is excellent! Happy WOYWW. Wait, I said that already. DOUBLE happy WOYWW to you... quadruple now. Judy #134

Sophia said...

Ohhh fun. Love your crayons and all the goodies you won!! And how about that WOWW button! :)

Suzanne said...

What a good idea to visit everyone who ends with the same number as you!As it's my first time as a WOYWWer I'm aiming to visit as many as poss this time but I may adopt your idea (sounds better than 'steal'!) another time.
Love your use of colour...wish I could draw!
take care, Suzanne #105

Fuchsia said...

Cup cakes look yummy
Thanks for passing by
wall hanging sounds like a good idea for my doodles
have a happy week xx

Shoshi said...

Great crayons, great artwork (yes it does look like a mug of beer but what a lovely mug of beer lol!!) and hasn't Julia got ARTISTIC writing?!! Lovely!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. Most of the boxes I'm getting rid of can't be squashed, but even so, don't tempt me!! They've got to GO and that's it. My hubby says we've got to be sans ruth.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #14

Julia Dunnit said...

The badge, you're welcome! The writing?argh!! If the course is getting you to sketch and colour outside the comfort zone, it's a good course, believe me! Nice to see you playing with new colour medium too, isn't it exciting!!

fairy thoughts said...

MY handyman loved the sound of 'mug of beer' cupcakes he! he!

Tracey Fletcher KIng said...

I love those crayons and have only just started playing with them in the last few months... such wonderful colours... the beer cupcake made me laugh because I think my man would think that was the perfect food if it existed... happy woyww Trace # 50

Sam said...

Hello. Those sure look like cupcakes to me! Lovely candy you have had too. I had better get my badge soon as I am meeting with Julia and LLJ next month!! LOL!
Yes my chair does have wheels and is comfy (certainly better than my old one as I could feel my newly discovered bones in my bum on that chair!) Thanks for your visit xx

My name is Cindy said...

Hi Kay, now I didn't think your cupcake looked like a pint of beer till you wrotethat, now I can't get that image out of my head LOL. Thanks for popping by to see me, Cindy #17

thefrugalcrafter said...

that button is awesome, how cool would that be to meet another woywwer!

fairyrocks said...

Adorable pin, Good job with the crayons too.
Keep smiling and creating and thanks so much for stopping by.

Susan ~ Killam Creative said...

Nice way to visit other WOYWWers! I might have to use that number idea... I definitely visit everyone who visits me. The crayons are fun - love the banner, too. I think I need a button, too. Thanks for visiting!

Cheers,
Susan #128

Julia Dunnit said...

I like your visiting technique! Wonderful gifts from that Okie Nurse, how generous she is. Hey I'm glad you're loving the Neocolours, I have another make and I have to say they really help me feel like I can do the whole colour thing! I'm liking the cupcakes - an online course that makes you do something you wouldn't normally is a good course!

GLENDA BROOKS said...

Happy WOYWW...a day late. Sorry I didn't get round yesterday! Lots going on here and not much crafting! Have a great day and rest of the week!

Di said...

Trousers finished so I finally got here! You can wear your WOYWW badge later this year when we (hopefully) meet! Di xx

Annie said...

I'm playing a bit of catch up today after my busy day with my munchkins yesterday. Thanks for calling in on me and for your lovely comments. When I had my knee done my consultant told me I wouldn't be able to kneel on it ever again [and he wasn't wrong!]. He also told me that I would be able to ride a bike after but laughed when I said "that's brilliant cos I couldn't ride one before!" I wouldn't be without my new knee now though and we find ways round the things we can't do don't we? [like getting a much older sister to grovel at our feet eh?] :-)
Hugs,

Laura said...

Thank you for your lovely comment.

Your parcel of goodies looks lovely, I hope you have good fun playing.

Laura 135

p.s. Nothing wrong with a beer!

BJ said...

Thanks for your comment. You seem to have started something with the "heart-drawer" mention, every one is saying hte same now. My DH got them from Sainsbury's in the UK for me last Christmas. BJ#54

Morti said...

LOL - what a fab haul! And it can't be a mug of beer - there's no handle!

Thanks for stopping by....

MaggieC said...

I choose a different number each week to pick who I visit, apart from anyone who visits me, of course. It is anything ending with 4 this week, next week will be 5 and so on, if I remember. Those crayons look great. I love my water colour crayons, and even take some on holiday. Thank you for your visit this week and your lovely comments about our new stamp. have a good week. xx Maggie #5

Elizabeth said...

Hi Kay, I'm late, I know, blame that visit to the dentist - I was in for an hour ... a whole hour out of my life, I just can't afford that? Hope your visit to the hygienist went rather better. Love your sketches and congratulations on your win from Vickie - lovely candy and the card is fab. Hope your having a great weekend. Elizabeth x #73
