Another Snow Day, a quick ATC, and my explosion...errrr....I mean Workspace for WOYWW!

Today is another snow day. Another couple of feet on top of what is still lingering from the past few weekly storms. Seriously - we have been getting a storm every week since Christmas! Every single one of them has brought more than a foot of snow and a couple of them have been multiple feet. This one is actually two back to back storms with an expected total of about two feet. It's NUTS! Weird, really. I have lived in Massachusetts for most of my life and my parents have lived here all of my life and I can't remember a year like this EVER. Have you had an odd winter?

I am hoping to use some of my day off today to create, though! Although...these days to have a way of begging for movies and tea! LOL!

Right now my workspace looks pretty good, actually. Well, from my perspective, anyway! HA!

WOYWW2.2


I have a couple of new goodies on there that I'm excited to play with. I finally broke down and bought Liquid Sculpey (with a coupon, of course!). I am looking forward to playing with it! I have had some ideas that I just thought would work better with that, so I'm going to give it a shot. I also bought some charcoal pencils to use in my ATC's and mixed media stuff. I am looking forward to playing with those.

It was time to be.


If you have a keen eye you may have noticed this little beauty there in the insanity that I call a desk! It's a simple little ATC that I created using a fabulous photo-realistic stamp from Scrolls Work Stamps. Her name is Sally! I stamped it on a textured ATC base giving it a really interesting, textured look. Then I used Luminarte Twinkly H2O's to watercolor around the image and added the words cut from a vintage book and the clock!

So, that's pretty much what I've been up to! And I am loving every minute of the One World One Heart event that you can check out by clicking on the link you see just below my banner! I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday!!!!

OH...and totally don't forget to mosey on over to Julia's blog to see the other awesome workspaces!!!

Yes...it is a very odd winter. In Kansas we have not had it too bad, but today we have about 12 inches which has drifted to 2 foot drifts. I love your creative space. I like mine when it is only a single layer...like yours.

We have had the kind of winter that I remember from when I was a child, always fighting to keep upright on the ice on our hills. The trouble is not many people seem to remember a winter that lasted for 3 months, so the first sprinkle of snow brings everything to a halt. Your desk looks exciting with loads of things to play with.

Sarpreet said...

Marlene said...

You're obviously one of those people that can create in chaos! I become paralyzed in it! (Explains much, eh?)

I'm so sick of this weather!!! UNCLE!!! UNCLE!!!!

Carola Bartz said...

Well, you hit her well behind the jar! Beautiful ATC. Oh, and I love to work with charcoal pencils!

Mary Helen-Art Saves Lives said...

I have two work tables like yours...so what is your point?:O) Hot coca and naps on this cold blustery day...I hope to escape to my studio tomorrow if the Ice does not cover the driveway again. Peace, Mary Helen

I think if we aren't careful you are going to win the prize for less than 6 sq in available for crafting. You have a lot of awesome crafty goodness available to play with there! Have fun. Thanks for sharing.

Yea but our storms started the beginning of December! We've had one a week since then... except I think we missed the first week of January.. I'm sure the schools have been closed for almost 20 days here and they don't make up missed days in Eastern Canada!

Kate said...

I love your workspace you are a woman after my own heart!! Creative mess.

So pretty! Can you believe there will be MORE snow on Saturday? I want some green...now! I love, love, love winter - but I long to see little sprouting crocuses and hyacinths. Theresa

RosA said...

Hi again, Love your desk! There looks like there could be a lot happening there? I'm also trying to get around to ordering some Liquid Sculpey. I'm sure I need it! Please visit my WOYWW pic if you have a chance.

Electra said...

I never thought to use my twinkling H2O's as a background. another great Jingle-idea!

butlersabroad said...

Brilliant desk Jingle, your snow day has been very well utilized! Me, I had to do real work, on a lap top from home, but no time to craft! Coulda done with a bit more snow in MI!!!
