WOYWW

Hello WOYWWers, how are you? I'm in the midst of bloghopping around the world with One World One Heart, and if you haven't heard about it check it out. And if you want to win one of my giveaways please go over here.

So, this is on my table today:


Finally I've started an art journal - sort of. I just dived in and created this page after I had walked through my yard and found many tulips and daffodils peeking their heads out of the soil. It feels like spring over here whereas the Midwest is drowning under heaps of snow. Really weird. But it made me happy and motivated me to create this page without much thinking.

My Valentine's class last Thursday went very well, I had a few new participants which is always nice (although I like my "fanclub").  Here are the cards and tags we made:


That's all from me this week. If you want to see more messy or tidy desks around the world, please hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and check out the list! Enjoy the ride!

Wow...you've been really busy. Valentines are really sweet and I really love your a-z photos. I miss how the crocus and tulips would just come up every year back East. Only thing that happens in So Cal is the mountains go from brown to green. Enjoy your spring.

Wednesday morning has become my favorite blog day because I can view your desk as well as the others who take part in WOYWW.

I purchased a few supplies last week (when they were on sale) to start an art journal. I think the art teacher at my school is going to give me a few mixed media classes to get started. I am VERY excited.

I love your page --- I hope one day I can create one like that with little effort :)

It's lovely when something inspires you to create a project and you just have to get started on it there and then!

Such Cuteness!!!

You're a 100% correct on both counts:

1. The world definitely laughs in flowers, and
2. There's absolutely no sign of outdoor flowers in the Midwest at the moment, in fact, the only colour outside my window right now is white!!

see you there! said...

From looking at the finished products I'd say your Valentine's class must have been a lot of fun. I'd love to get together with other people to make art, maybe I'll look for a local class.
