WOYWW 301


It's been a pretty busy week. The rosette is made with glassine paper. If you want to believe you have sausage fingers, make rosettes with glassine lol. Actually I'm thinking that with string and tiny hole punches it could be roped into compliance more easily. It's for a scrapbook layout I'm not sure if I've finished, all about being cantankerous  as #$@& when I grow up when I want to be : D.

The snowflake was on the floor, discovered when I was looking for one of the letters that drifted off last night. I even turned out the trash bag. On the plus side I did find a tiny transparent stamp on the floor that I had given up on finding months ago. I've also resolved to only use very tiny trash bags next to my workdesk (lest I wind up on hoarders due to fear of accidentally throwing out stamps).

Which ties into my latest obsession. Putting ttransparent stamp sets into Avery Elle bags. One of the benefits when the little ones fall off, they are still in the bag. I have a lot of Papertrey Ink stamps in CD cases. The envelopes take up a lot less space and the CD cases have a little gap where little stamps can easily fall out.

Next project on the agenda, put spring into a jar topper (clear half dome at the back). So the little sheep in the stamp set need to be reverse stamped to make a two-sided image.The snow is finally melting. I can actually see asphalt in 1/4 of the driveway. Only after an ubersnowy winter, am I so excited to see asphalt.

Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground for more crafty fun : ).

Hey! I love the Avery Elle bags..I LOL at you finding things on the floor. Honestly the things I find under my desk, should make me embarrassed! I hear you about the snow, it's finally spring here in NYC, there is rain, which is delicious after all the snow we have had. Cx #64

Oh I bet the glassine is very slippery - but the results are so pretty. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #48

Oh is your glassine paper white, I've only got brown, I know about making rosettes, very fiddly, that's why I don't use them very much,
I lost a small die for weeks and then found it stuck to some card in the drawer.

Golly, I've never worked with glassine, but it looks difficult and I have very clumsy fingers.

I was looking for something the other day that was supposed to be on my desk (it had been just moments before). I finally found it on the floor. Glad you found a few things you thought you had lost. Not playing this week, but still had to stop by and say hi.

Oh, I'm always finding everything BUT what I just dropped on the floor. That bead that went missing last week? Check. Lots of cat hair & dust, too, but I don't usually find what I want right then. Not till next time, lol.

Happy creating and happy woyww,

Know what you mean by the hands and knees search for lost stamps - my dropping a tiny bee stamp led to a 2 hour clear out under my workdesk which time alone tells the world it was LONG overdue! Ali #72

Even asphalt means spring..you know it's high time! Love that you looked everywhere for one letter..at what point do you give in and do another? And Hoarders...lawks, I could qualify, am re-inspecting my clear stamp storage too...what is an avery elle bag? I need to research.

Julia Dunnit said...
