WOYWW and Wind

WOYWW is one of the biggest crafty blog hops around.  We each share a photo of our crafting space with all its bumps and warts or halos and angel wings.  You can check it out at the Queen of Desk Snooping Julia's blog Stamping Ground.  I am warning you though, it is strangely addicting.  Since there are so many desks to visit WOYWWers stop by only briefly so quick, here's my desk.  It looks a lot like it does most Wednesdays, stuff piled to the sides and some working space in the middle.   Some items to note on the desk this week are a couple new stamps I got recently and a project I'm working on for a swap. 


Here is a bonus photo peek at my hall closet.  This closet is big enough to hold a washer and dryer.  But alas, there are no hook ups so it contains paper and stamps.  And cat litter, extra blankets, and random household things, but who's counting those?



Another project on my desk is one I worked on for the A Muse Studio Challenge Blog.  This week's challenge is called Which Way the Wind Blows so I made the following card.  You don't have to use A Muse products to join the challenge-although they like it when you do-so why don't you think about joining in? 

The Fine Print: On Guard stamp by Penny Black, Make Your stamp by Hero Arts, Butterfly Dream punches by EK Success, and proof you can squish a bottle cap in a Big Shot if you know what you're doing, sticker letters by unknow, pinwheel and Life's a Breeze stamps by A Muse Artstamps, as are the petite polka dot papers and the scallop die, the die cut around greeting is Labels 11 by Spellbinders.

A cat in the way, as always.

You could make a load of paper aeroplanes with that little lot!! Great storage though, I like it when everything's tidy :) Doesn't happen very often in this house.....
The cat looks affronted, as if the card is crowding his personal space!! LOL

I moved cuz I had to go potty. Was that okay? Don't tell anyone but I have another of those containers and two file drawers full of card stock too. I'm not kidding about the 8-foot stack of paper. And my 8-foot stack is just the patterned stuff.

Tammy said...

Adorable card! Love the fun spring colors. What a fun closet! I so wish I had that much space to spread my paper out. I would have such fun filling it up! :) Happy WOYWW 147 - Tammy #47

Mary Jo Rhoda said...

Ahhhhh! I love that stamp with the two women!!
I have an old McCall's dress pattern on display in my scrap room for inspiration that has similar "models" on it.
Would you mind telling me where you found that stamp?

Love that pile of paper!! I had a deja vue moment when I saw your new stamps - have seen that guardhouse one somewhere else recently. Love your little pin wheel card. Thanks for taking the time to track me down and let me know I messed up my link - I was feeling very unloved!! That's what happens when you rush - Oh well there's always next week!!!

Kitty helpers are the best helpers!

Barb King said...

Well that closet sure looks organized! Can't wait to see what you do with that retro looking stamp with the 2 women. I love that type of graphic. Thanks for stopping by my space, Princess Judy (or is it just Princess, or Judy or do you prefer the formal Princess Judy?) Barb

Princess Judy Palmer said...

The cat does indeed look miffed! Funny thing though the card was there first. Of course fluffy blanket on a pillow... why OF COURSE that must be for a cat.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

It was a store... several of them. Those darn crafty stores keep going out of business here and then it is time to stock up!!!!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

The closet needs to stay pretty organized at it is a walk in closet and the CAT LITTER is in there. That's important to access. I suppose the medications and laundry soap in there might be necessary too... oh yeah and all those drawers of stamps!! If it is too messy you can't open them. Many of the lower ones are blocked now. I wish I could water that closet and make it grow.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I answer to Judy, or Princess, or Princess Judy, or Pee Jay, or even Hey, You! I'm easy. The closet has to stay fairly organized since the hubby goes in there too. All the medications are in there, kitty litter, laundry soap, and all those drawer of stamps (not that he'd get into them but they need room to slide open--can't get into the lower ones right now).

Yogi said...

wonderful desk pic. Enjoyed reading your blurbs as well. Thanks for the comments on my desk and have a great day.
Yes I've been having a fabulous week and a half doing all the Tim stuff. BIG GRIN

VonnyK said...

You have so much paper, I bet you could sell it back to a shop and make a fortune. Love your breezy card and the butterfly one.
Have a great week.

You have lots of supplies to be creative, Judy, and you put them to good use. I love the cheerful card, especially the sentiment! Have a great week! #148

okienurse said...

Okay PJ I see that we have a lot in common with the pesky kitties and the closets full of patterned cardstock/paper etc. I wish I lived closer to you and several others cause we could have a hell of a good time! Love your closet, desk, and attitude! Hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing! Vickie #138

Kathryn said...

And I thought I had a lot of paper! Jeepers! Do you find that green is the hardest color to match? I have more paper in green than any other. Your paper "collection" makes my heart flutter! I may be having the vapors now!
Oh and, not to discount, your work is beautiful too!
Hugs!

April said...

Your desk looks nice and busy, those 2 new stamps look good, look forward to seeing what you create with those. Great extra storage space! and those 2 cards are lovely, they have a nice spring feel to them. x

Ann B said...

How much paper is that? A few trees worth for sure and just think if there were power points in that cupboard you would have to find somewhere else to store it.

Your cards are fab, the lady stamp is fab, your cat is fab and your cupboard is fab - what more can I say - fab fab fab!!! Thank you for visiting my desk - I didn't know H2Os were disappearing at some stage. They are definitely around to buy now but I have had mine for ages. Have a good and creative week xx

Bugged Designs said...

The card for the swap is beautiful, love the background paper and butterflies are always good. As for your closet - well it looks a lot more appealing than the cupboard under my stairs, you lucky thing!

May said...

Love your cat!!! You dont like paper then I take it.... Wow!!! I have never seen so much unless in a shop, Fabulous, your cards are lovely, Hugs May x x x No14

Neet said...

Worra lot of paper! Phew!
Love your cards but it's that space for the household appliances. Now why did I not think of that - one washer going to spring a leak now.
Hugs, Neet #5 (who has candy on her blog) xx

voodoo vixen said...

Who the heck wants a washer and dryer when they can have such a fabby cupboard filled with paper (ignoring the cat litter)!! Love the cat looking miffed because a lovely card appears to in the just the spot he wants! Annette #22

lisa said...

Blimey, you have such a lot of stash and so neatly organised. I'm amazed you have room for household stuff too. Cat litter takes up such a lot of room!!! I spilled a bag all over the Supermarket car park after ripping it on the trolley yesterday, not a happy bunny! May have to come and borrow some of yours, lol.
Love the card.
Happy WOYWW

I have tried several times to leave you a message this week, but Mr Blogger and Mr Link both objected to everything I tried. I hope it works this time. Thank you for your visits and your kind comments. Flash is now recovering slowly. It was not a sting. We think that he was just rushing round like the mad dog he is and wrenched something, causing soft tissue damage. However the anti-inflammatory and the painkillers seem to be doing their work Slow gently exercise is on the agenda for a week or so to allow the damage to heal properly. Have a good week. xx Maggie #7

Neesie said...

JB said...

I love the fact you've used a closet for extra stash space. I wish I could do that!
