Last Day To Enter The Smashbook/Paper Giveaway!



Hi Gang!!  Sorry I've been quiet for the last week.  The same day I wrote my last post, one of our sweet kitties passed away.  He was the one I officially called mine.  I really miss him.  He was such a clown!

To get an idea of how big he really was...that's a men's size 10 shoe laying right behind his head.  He was a HUGE kitty!  RIP Jack (or as my neighbor nicknamed him after seeing this pose, Captain Comfortable!)  Okay, enough sad stuff.

Today is the last day to enter for my 12x12 paper and Smashbook giveaway!  I've been so happy with all the entries and sweet comments so far!  And thanks so much to all of the new followers, and all of you that have advertised the giveaway on your own blogs or Facebook pages to help some of those new followers find me!!  You guys all ROCK!!!!!

To enter for the giveaway, please click HERE

Please only use the link above for giveaway entries.  Comments on this post will be much appreciated, but won't count toward an entry for the giveaway.

I hope you all have a truly wonderful day!

BIG HUGS

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #128



WOOHOO!!!  #3 on the WOYWW link up!  YAY!!!!!!!!!!


Happy Wednesday WOYWWers!!  Today finds my craft room FILTHY!  My poor desk didn't stand a chance this week!  I've been house/dog sitting for my neighbors for the past week (the ones that built my beautiful craft room for me) so I've been back and forth between the two houses.  I've been spending a few hours each afternoon crafting, but I'm so rushed, I haven't been cleaning up after myself.  On top of that, I went to my first-ever scrapbook convention last Friday!  I have never seen so much scrappy goodness in one place...EVER!!!  My little artistic feelers were going crazy!!!  I came out of there with a TON of stuff!  Some of it is still scattered around on my desk.  I need to find places for a few things.  Now, Black Friday is coming up in a week and a half, and with all the good Joann's and Michael's deals that were leaked last week, I foresee having to find places for more stuff... *blush*

Also on my desk is a birthday card I'm working on for my sweet son's 30th birthday on Sunday.  Ugh...I'm old!  He lives in another part of the country, so I won't get to see him that day, but I know his awesome wife will make sure it's great!  I really miss them.

So, happy Wednesday!  Let's make it an awesome one!!

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #127

***Please click HERE for my giveaway***

Good morning WOYWWers!!  I had a crafty friend over this afternoon, and we made a HUGE mess on my desk!  It was fun and we were elbow deep in cardmaking supplies and goodies!  I SO WISH I had remembered to take a pic before we cleaned up a bit...it was a beautiful disaster!

So here's the bit of mess that's left...


QUITE a bit of mess!!  Oh well.  My fun thing to do this week has been Smash Books!  I ordered a few of them through Amazon FOR FREE!!  (Click here for more info on how I earn FREE Amazon gift cards.)  I decided to start working on the Black "Mod Style" book first and I'll see where that leads me.  I also got all sorts of little Smash Book things to go with it...the bands, the stickies, Smash pads, etc.  I think it will be lots of fun!

I'm also working on a secret project!!  Secret, because it's a Christmas gift for my kids, and my DIL usually keeps up with my blog!  So it's there...right on my desk...can you see it?!?!  Haha!
