12 Days Sneak Peek, WOYWW, Ice!

Now for something completely different , here is my digital creative center.

The winter storm warnings have just been posted,  ICE! and possibly s**w, so don't be surprised if you don't here from me. 
All Thanksgiving foods are prepared and I moved my car- getting down my driveway can be the worst, so we'll see what comes next.
I got my Christmas mug out early-it's on my electric cup warmer-LOVE IT!- as I needed a bit of cheer.
Above you can just see the mess that will turn into 12 lovely gifts that will be exchanged for 12 Days with the By Hand Artists- an international group shepherded by Suzanne Cannon of Quietfire Design.
Last years begins here

I love having 12 gifts to open on twelve days leading up to Christmas.
Check back here on Dec 13 for the play by play!

See that bit of blue card near the center? It has  had a red green and gold braided ribbon I've been hoarding since the 50's. The card reads

"Braid Winners
Ideal for sewing, pinning,pasting.
A perfect finish to a job well done"

We don't write ad copy like we used to!
That will end up in on of my "off the desk" ATC's

Thanks for stopping by and for all US woyww-ers
Happy Thanksgiving!

WOYWW-On Your Desk ATC Exchange- Pinterest Party

Not much change from last week- some progress on what I can't show you, and more ATC's from my desk.
I got those fun card holders for less than a dollar on clearance at Joanns. The glues were free with a rebate- you get what you pay for.LOL!

WOYWW? I'm pleased to share and visiting will be limited for the next few weeks- travel and life!

On Your Desk ATC Exchange

I've started this series of ATC's.
 At the end of the day I pick up whats on my desk  and make an ATC- try not to spend more than 15 minutes on it. 
I've already traded quite a few, and soon they will pile up! 
I'm thinking of a New Years Swap- so if you are interested leave me a comment and I'll start making a  list.
The guidelines are the usual ATC, and the card  should be made off of what is lying around on your desk at the end of the day. Backgrounds can be made  of excess ink from your desk.
Have fun!
WOYWW-ers may stop reading now!

Michaels Pinterest Party

Michaels had an in-house Pinterest Party and Spellbinders sent me as a Crafting Celebrity.

I was basically a personal craft consultant, helping folks to pick out products to create, in the Michaels classroom projects worthy of Pinning!

These ladies decorated wooden sleighs with paint, diecuts, glitter and lots of imagination !

I love being a creative educator and hope you will include me in your creative journeys!

WOYWW-Projects Not Pictured-On My Desk ATC

 It's that time of year folks.....

Lots going on and nothing I can tell you about.

Well, one thing... In the upper photo, center back is an ATC, from a series I've started called, On My Desk. At the end of the day I pick up a bunch of random stuff and stick it on an ATC. Fun! Maybe you will join me and we'll have an online exhibit.

Projects with reveal dates, secret santa swaps, gifts and re-gifts!

Don't look too closely, something might be coming your way!
