(Edit: I lied)
Tag 32-heart

I meant to post last week and time got away from me.

I've been enjoying using and gifting the Motto Calendar for my entire life, and sadly, this year was rumored to be its last.
Miracle of 2020- it was revived, and as I had already mailed my Christmas cards and packages, I made ATCs and envies to send them out.

Pray for the United States of America- I pray for all hearts to open to caring for each other, kindness, compassion, equity and Peace.
Thanks for visiting!
I seem to have issues leaving comments on some Blogger posts- if you put the comment window as a pop out it 's ok, when it is in the body  of the post, not so much.
I am visiting and enjoying y'all very much.

WOYWW 603 -Poinsettias and Popups

Joyous Holidays all!
I know poinsettia grow wild and free somewhere, and here we scientifically control their indoor environment , give them drugs to start  growing and stop growing, and goddess knows what is prayed inside the greenhouses (for workers to breathe) and then for $4.00 I get at least a month of color and enjoyment out of them.
Somehow this inspires me!

The little  the green box with the red holly berries is a  cookie box- the ATC with the red bow was made out of leftovers.
You can read more about that
 The cute little snowmen also have a story to tell.

Last and never least Brave Girl Cards.
Can you tell Santa brought me the new Tonic Deckle Edge cutter?

Dear Deskers, no telling what this new year will bring, and I'm feeling grateful knowing for sure there will be more WOYWW's!
I seem to have issues leaving comments on some blogs- FYI- if you use blogger, make your comment box a pop up, and for some reason that makes it easier to comment.

WOYWW 602 The Kind of S**W I Like


Card making continues with peace as a theme.
We had a small ice event this morning, and I am going nowhere!
I understand there are some who like this stuff!

In a tidy and toss frenzy I went through and organized all my ribbon and rick rack.
I'm pretty sure the sheep were a gift I'd forgotten, and  I'm going otokeep them on my desk till they find their flock!
Thanks so much for visiting!

The Desk
What you see before you are goody bags of desk detritus being bagged up to go in Christmas stockings!
The Deskers
The woman of the hour dressed in Green!
(myself behind the camera)

A splendid time was had by all!
I haven't enjoyed myself this much since I don't know when!
Laughs, show and tell and just a touch of gin!
(it was after five in some time zones)
This is what peace looks like.
( some deskers do say bloody, and y'all!)
Not nearly as fascinating in my current digital blog post with the cutest penguin ever!
Thanks one and all for zooming, visiting and giving this American girl a jolly good welcome!

WOYWW 600 - Looking backwards and forwards

Where to begin?
I first heard about WOYWW from another blogger, and after my first visit I was hooked.
I love ATC's and each one of these trades over the years is precious.
Y'all are some of the best friends I have never met.
Inviting each other in to each others homes each week, for over 10 years now- we are well ahead of the times, as Zoomers are just beginning to see.
My desk is in full Holiday mode, and it was a joy to display all the ATC's and pins, being careful not to get them in the glue, glitter and/or ink on this working girls desk.
I so look forward to meeting many of you on Saturday.
Here's to another 600
Three Cheers to Julia, and god bless us every one.
Thanks for visiting, your kind comments, welcoming me and more.
This is what peace looks like.

WOYWW 598- More than one...Restraint

I used to do a lot of swaps and mingles, and every time I would go through the same cycle of forgetting and them remembering how much I don't enjoy making  multiples.
i've made more cards than ever, and each one is different, and I fell in love with this sentiment so ...
I'm enjoying the restraint of the postcard- can't go overboard with layers and embellishments .
You can see that

Here in the states we are looking to a pandemic Thanksgiving- not knowing if I will be able to be with my children or not, holding back (more restraint) on preparation incase not.
Thankful for being together will all of you each Wednesday!
