A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

WOYWW 146

Good Morning from California to all my fellow What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday participants.  Ms. Dunnit, hostess, says keep the post brief, not everyone reads it (both hands clasped to cheeks, mouth open in horror and disbelief!), and it's all about the gawping.  Rightly so.  Gawp away, late as it is for most of you!


Last night I got a head start on peeking in on a lot of you even though I waited until this morning to take my picture in the light.  I also did some watercoloring.  I'll be posting that card back there in a separate post in a minute.  Okay, talk you later, move along.

Please enjoy ~ and thank you for stopping by! Special thanks to you if you took the time to leave me a comment!

Hi Darnell,

I took the tour of your crafty shed -- I am blown away! I absolutely love it!!!! The view you have out your window onto your backyard is great too.

Thanks for dropping in on me and leaving a lovely comment.

Love all your little baskets of pens! Some great art work going on there too. It must be nice having a view of your garden as youu work.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I've started knitting in earnest now and really enjoying doing it, after not touching any knitting for so many years.

Happy WOYWW,

Hello from Lancashire in the UK,
Thanks for popping into my studio Darnell, it's lovely to get comments from other crafters.
The artwork on the wall is my own and is enjoyed by my hubby when he sneaks into my studio to eat his breakfast.
Your blog is nice and lively.
Hope to see you again at ONE I MADE EARLIER TODAY.
