WOYWW 7-18-12 (on 07-21-12)

Does it count even if it's on Saturday? I just couldn't get it together this week. Out of the house at 6:15 am and not getting home until 7:00 pm or later it was all I could do to make dinner and eat before falling into bed. So no crafty time during the week.
I was up verrrry early today so I worked a little bit on my journal. Still haven't managed to start on the Christmas cards yet, but we have a long weekend coming up here in Canada so I have hopes for getting them at least started!
This is what my desk looked like at 6:30 am this morning. Yes, it was already that bright outside.

The little plastic case on the left holds my portable journalling kit so I can take my journal anywhere and work on the basics. Dragged out my watercolour pencils so I could be a kid again! The daubers and ink were used on another page.
This page was started previously and finished this morning. Used the ink to do the grass and sky. This is in the  house section of my journal.

Again, inked the sky and ground. This is the travel section of my journal. (Just noticed I stamped the wrong date--a little dyslexia going on! Like I said, it's way early so maybe I just need another cuppa!)
I'll leave you with a picture I took at my dear parents house last weekend. This is my father's buddy. He comes and sits at the patio table and looks in the door and talks to Dad until he takes out some peanuts for him. He is so used to Dad that he doesn't even fly away anymore, he just waits until the peanuts are shelled and then hops over to take them. I've started to call Dad "the Bird Whisperer".

Waiting for his food.
Thanks for stopping by and have a super weekend all! I'll try to be here on time next week!


  1. LOVE the blue jay picture, that is so awesome that he trusts your dad for his meal! My birds act like I'm running after them with a broom screaming...guess I'll never make bird whisperer status at this rate, lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :) #50

  2. I didn't link to WOYWW until Friday, so I was only one ahead of you (#169). Your desk is so neat and organized when you work. I always clean up after I finish, but it gets really messy when I work. I love the bluejay at your dad's house. My wife and I had some nesting in our backyard a couple of years ago that would attack us when we watered the flower beds. :{ Just like Sandy, we're no bird whisperer's. Blessings!

  3. Gorgeous journal pages, and a beautiful bird! I also love your stylish lamp.

    I'm desperately trying to complete the list and visit every desk from last week's WOYWW before midnight!! I've managed it! Yours is the last in the list!! First time I've ever done it, and I don't suppose I'll ever manage it again. Hence the very belated happy WOYWW greeting from me,



Thanks for leaving a comment, I love to read them and they put a smile on my face.
