WOYWW 10 – Lots & Lots Of Stuff!

My workspace this week features an ever-changing array of stuff! Recently, my husband and I completed the task of reorganizing every bookshelf in our home, and began to pull books and magazines from The Paper Palace for relocation. Of course, it should come as no surprise by now that you know who showed up a few moments later and made himself right at home in the midst of the action! Legend used to avoid the paparazzi when he was young – now I think he has grown to love the red carpet treatment! Whenever the camera appears, somehow, like clockwork, so does my boy!
I received a lot of goodies in the mail this week! One item I received – which I’ve been anticipating for months now – is a little packet of goodies from Kindred Spirit Wendy, who owns a Collage ATC group I am on. Each month, she sends swap members a packet of items related to that month’s theme. Swappers then create ATCs that contain one or more items from the packet, adding items from their own stash to complete their cards. Afterwards, the group admires everyone’s handiwork and marvels at how differently we express our creativity using the same items!
This month’s theme is Girly, and as you can see, it did not take long before I dug in and started to play! This was what my coffee table looked like a few days ago when I camped out in front of the TV and started to make a few cards!
I’ve been blessed by many good things lately – among them, the news that I won blog candy at Dar’s Crafty Creation! I received my package from Darlene a few days ago – she spoiled me with many wonderful goodies – including this beautiful card! Don’t you just love the rich color scheme and all of the pretty details? It fits in so nicely with my Girly theme too! Thanks Darlene for your generosity!
I also learned that I won the February Glitter Challenge at The smART-Word Challenge for my Baubles & Glitter Card!  My reward was three unmounted rubber stamp sets from smARTworks! I am looking forward to giving these awesome stamps a spin – thanks, Susan, for everything!
Let sleeping cats lie… This is the scene on my desk as the day begins. What’s the scene on yours? Please leave a comment so I’ll know you dropped by, then hop over to Julia’s to see what all the other WOYWW’s are up to!

    Thanks for stopping by today Ramona.
    I do love Legend he has the most gorgeous face, I want to scoop him up and cuddle & kiss him!!!

    I think my Bengals are the most laid back in the world. They love to sleep – mostly together, although they are not related!!!!

    They tend to wake up at night and then gallop back and forth down the landing, honestly it sounds like a heard of elephants not two cats.

    Thomas is the worst for getting into mischief. He will steal my craft items sometimes and he likes to put things in his waterbowl, which really isn't good!!!

    Have a great week.

    Hugs

    Hi Ramona:
    That Legend is one good-lookin' cat. Thanks for sharing your photos today. Organizing is a good thing, but alas, it would take me forever in the studio. Perhaps someday after I get the most immediate projects accomplished. sigh
    Have a great day!
    xoxo
