What you are about to see just might shock and amaze you. Just say'n.

This is my not-even-close-to-wordless-Wednesday post and my WOYWW! Just say'n.

WOYWW 7/27/2011


I know, right? Yes, I cleaned up that massive insanity that was my desk. It was honestly beyond workable, so it had to be done. The rest of the room still needs a LOT of work, but at least this is a start.

I do have a project or two sitting there waiting for me. Along with an envelope at the end that I am just now remember I was supposed to prepare and take to the Post Office today...I guess I will be doing that tomorrow, then. HA!

These lovelies will be worked on this week for sure. They are waiting for paint and proper clothes and such. One of them is for a swap and the other two are just for fun. 'Cause I love making dolls. This body type is new for me and I don't know if I like it or not yet. We shall see once they are completed! HA!

Many of the things I currently am storing on my desk need new homes, but that won't happen until I get some reorganizing done in the room as a whole. I am, however, now just ITCHING to jump in and make stuff on that nice clear desktop!

OH! Guess what? So, we had that heat wave last week and I thought my ac in my car was just struggling because it was slightly over one million degrees outside and extremely humid, HOWEVER, as it turns out, I discovered yesterday when it was just normal hot (like 85 or so and muggy) that it still didn't seem to be working...after a bit more investigation, alas, my ac is NOT working and needs to be recharged. Seriously? I went through a freaking heat wave with a less-than-functional AC and lived? Wow. I must like hot more than I thought! HA! Anyway, hopefully taking that in on Monday to get the recharge done. In the meantime, it's gonna be some warm, cozy hour long commutes home for the rest of the week! Fun stuff.

On another note...if you were looking for the sketch over at Skipping Stones Design yesterday and found it wasn't up there yet, it has been posted, so you can check it out and play along with this week's sketch for your chance to win! Also, two wonderful stamp sets are on sale this week, including the recently released Victorian Summer, so check it out!

Happy Wednesday!

  1. Lol, my first thoughts when you said the rest of the room needed tidying was "no way, she's going to dive right in there on that clean desk and mess it up again!"... just sayin'! Yeah, our heat has finally broken too, now all we need is a bit of rain!

  2. You are entertainment, Girlie! I love reading your wacky, real posts...makes me know I'm not alone. I hate that you went through all that heat wave with non-working ac in your car!!! I know that's miserable because my dear old blue suburban (may she rest in peace) and I went through many a Houston summer with a barely working ac...forget cool air after the temperature rose to 75!! Love your cleaned up desk and those dolls look interesting. My grandmother, who was a very crafty lady, made all sorts of dolls (her first love) so I'm intrigued by what you'll come up with!
    Happy scrapping!

  5. You have made my day! I will walk around with a large smile on my face just because of you! I feel such relief about my art desk and art room now, as I thought I may have gone over an edge of insanity with a small slice of usable space surrounded with containers of art tools and supplies, but now I find it's a shared condition of being a creative person....and I am envious of the much larger work space you have just created, as the blank area on your desk certainly is inviting all sorts of tools and such to pile up in a frenzy of creativity! Good for you! Thanks for sharing! Cheers!

  15. OMGOSH (clutching heart) I AM shocked and amased...LOL!! You always make me smile..thank you. The desk looks great and really I can't wait to see it messy again. Means your muse has been singing!!

    Owwwwwww..I love the dolls. You know several of my dolls are the yarn bodies but I do a bit of stuffing here and there to fill them out. Hummm, wish I could do that to myself although it would be removing some of this stuffing I have..hehe!!

    Have a great Wednesday...HUGS!!

  18. okay! That's it! While everyone talks of heat waves from last week, I'm still wondering what planet I'm on!! My friends from an hours away were, like you, struggling with Ac's and sweatin like crazy while I, up here in Quebec city, was freezin at a mere 15 degrees (celsius..) and wearing socks and long sleeves!! LOL!hihi!
    on another note, just can't wait to see how your little dolls turn out :) keep us posted!!

  19. PHOOEY! I want SO much to go back & comment on ALL your blog posts from the time I was out of town, but I can't 'cause I'm trying to do 965 things before this weekend. I DID go back & READ them all! Sadly, I'll comment on THIS one only, yet let you know I loved seeing everything you've been up to in the past few posts! These dolls are going to be AWESOME! I KNOW because I own one of your awesome dolls! And as much as I WANT to sympathize re: the a/c, we've had NO a/c in the car for almost 6 YEARS even in Houston's excruciatingly sticky heat. Can't afford to get the darned thing fixed. And we have this kind of heat for MONTHS. Does that make it easier to endure? NO WAY! With that said, I think I DO need to feel sympathetic because it must be brutal to those of you who AREN'T used to it. And just LOOK at what you accomplished, lil' Jen, DESPITE the heat! Your work area looks AMAZING! Big ol' hugs to you!
