WOYWW # 221


Happy Hump Day… time for another week of jetting around the world and peeking in on friends to see what they have been up to. That's right… it's WOYWW, brought to you by Ms. Julia. If you want to see how you can join in on all the fun, click here.

I have been MIA the past few weeks, and I want to thank those of you who sent me messages of concern over my where abouts. I'd like you to know how much it means  to me. (you all know who you are.. :D ) I have not been feeling very well. I had Lymphosarcoma when I was younger, (cancer of the lymph nodes) with a poor prognosis, but by the grace of God, 3 yrs of chemotherapy and 21 radiation treatments I can call myself a survivor. The flip side to all that has left me with a small mountain of health problems, and I suffer from chronic pain due to degenerative arthritis with spinal stenosis.The past few weeks I have had some mystery thing going on that has left me completely zapped. When I am feeling like that I have a tendency to shut the world out. I find it easier to hibernate, cuz just typing that out makes me feel like a hyperchondriac. With school beginning, and dance about to start back up, I hope to find my energy and my mojo here really soon.

I digress though… needless to say I have not been doing much of anything. I did get some happy mail out, and I managed a page or two in my art journal. I can't post the happy mail stuff, but I can post my journal page. The face was actually drawn by my daughter Bridget onto a napkin, I collaged it along with some music sheets into my journal, and I used my Koi watercolors, and some Dr. Martins acrylic Ink.

WOYWW # 219


WOW…2-1-9, the weeks are just flying by. It's my favorite day of the week thanks to our glorious leader Julia who brings all of us like minded folk together week after week, to give us a trip around the world popping in on friends for WOYWW. She does it all from her neck of the woods at the stamping-ground

I have been working on finishing up Ms. Roudi's b'day present, which I had hope to have gotten in the mail. But unfortunately have a few finishing touches left. I will have it done and mailed in a day or so. Sorry Roudi, I promise it will be on it's way in a day or so.

So I got a wonderful THANK YOU card in the post from Claire, over at She offered to thank me in a very beautiful and I might add very creative way, just for offering my 2 cents. Claire, I might just have to offer my advice more often :D. I LOVE LOVE LOVE not just my THANK YOU card, but all the other beautiful cards you sent as well. This is my very 1st WOYWW package, you did a wonderful job of making it special. Big SHOUT OUT to Claire!!!!! 
The THANK YOU card

WOYWW # 218


Howdy, how are are all you awesome,  amazing desk hoppers doing this week?? Gues what day it is?? Come on, guess!! Yup it's HUMP DAY, and that means it is time for all of us to gather over at Julia's place so we can get out our virtual passports and see desks, and tables around the world.

Let me start off by saying a big fat thank you to all you wonderful, talented, inspirational, funny, warm, and kind folks who stoppped by my work table last week, and those who are becoming regulars. You all left such kind comments, and words of encouragement. I'd also like to say a special thank you for you awesome peeps who have started following me. You know who you are. :D

As you know I did a surprise, just because, good old fashioned drawing for those who left comments the previous week. Shaz was the lucky winner. I heard her squeals of excitement from this side of the pond. BTW, I finally got your goods in the mail. I probably could have delivered it in person for about the same price. I've never shipped over seas before…can you say "STICKER SHOCK". The woman in line ahead of me was mailing a big box to India. It was $90. I can honestly say, mine was no where near that. I had this giant smile on my face as I was filling out the little customs form, a) because I am excited to be sending Shaz her goodies, and b) I felt all "INTERNATIONAL" shipping a package overseas. I'm a weirdo, I know.

So this week not much going on. I am working on a belated birthday present for Ms Roudi over at I can not show photos yet. but I should be done in the next few days. I also did my weekly Life Book project. I have only completed a handful of the weekly projects. So I am working on catching up some. (I even put in another supply order with Week 31 lesson was; "Healing and Authenticity with Jeanette House" Jeanette used Blues, Purples, White and Grey. I chose a completely different color palette. I went with more earthy tones, or Autumn colors. (MY FAV's) I'm going to be selling my cricut and 15+ cartridges. I NEVER use it, actually I don't know how to use it. I'm going to thin out some stuff I hardly use. That way I can buy stuff I will use. Perfect Logic, right??
Friday night Bridget and a small group of other Champion level dancers did a show and danced with Irish singer and performer Sean Keane. He was not only an amazing singer, but he was a wonderful storyteller. On Saturday the girls danced at a North Carolina convention of Ancient Order of Hibernians. You'll notice Bridget wore a different costume each night. Friday she wore what they call a "Pub Costume". It is for doing pub shows and special performances. On Saturday they could wear their solo dresses. 
Well I have most definitely rambled long enough. Please feel free to leave me a comment. I'd love it if you'd decide to follow me. If I'm not already following you, I will.
