WOYWW 319

This is my desk before I get ready for the next thing... I'm not sure what it will be, the mojo is running fiercely lol. I completed 14 cards, 1 layout, mixed media pieces and wrote 10 blog posts between week 318 and 319.  One of the mixed media pieces is at the back of the desk and it's so shiny. Stickles and the tiny but long lasting pots of Twinkling H2Os insure it is one very sparkly piece.  I cut the sentiment up by lines and stamped each in a different ink (Live in the sunshine. Swim in sea. Drink in the wild air. Ralph Waldo Emerson).

I'm really pleased with the way the layout turned out. BTW all the stickle drawing was free hand and I managed not to smudge it!  The photo lifts up for more journaling and there is a pocket for extras.

The Marie Kondo (a tidying up) book says when sorting, only keep things that give you a spark of joy... only it's also jump starting the mojo (which is good and also tiring). And I found two sets of Inkadinkado stamps to add to the garage sale.

It's early, but head over to Julia's Stamping Ground for more crafty goings on.

Isn't it funny how some weeks we are so productive and full of inspired ideas and others we sit at our desks totally blank... Love your LO and the saying on your mixed media piece. #22

What sage advice Archie cat has indeed! My Dio says he doesn't get to catch mice but he is a whiz at sewer roaches. And yes, he leaves them proudly displayed. I looked at that Marie Kondo book once. I think she was a bit too hardcore for me, but definitely it had good advice in it. Well, I won't delay you any further. It seems you've been on quite the roll lately and I don't want to be the one to hold you up. Judy #5`

Hiya, sorry to be so late visiting, life is rather hectic this end. I love the layout and the picture of Archie Cat, he does look rather superior. I've not let Max read the advice, he has enough quirk of his own already.
Thanks for nice comments on my page,
