This is an ultra close up of a stick pin my oldest younger sister made for me :D. Because I'm a spinster, she added a sheep bead. I love it!

I'm thinking of entering my winged clock in the local fair and am considering adding flowers. It's lying on it's back so I don't have to glue anything before I'm ready. On the right you can see my new stick pin. I'm not at all sure where the green background came from though lol. Other than that I've been working on rearranging my craftroom. It looks like furniture will be moved, but I have to work my way up to that.

In non crafty life, yesterday I walked dogs for over 4 hours at the not quite local dog rescue. The puppies kicked my butt the most, apparently I spent a lot of time clenching and bracing lol. My own dog was not at all amused that I had merely let her out, and came home covered with dog smells.

I've also been reading Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jennifer Lawson aka The Bloggess. I thought about reading it while I ate my sandwich, but I feared it would have caused choking so I took a break. Neil Gaiman said “The Bloggess writes stuff that actually is laugh-out-loud, but you know that really you shouldn’t be laughing and probably you’ll go to hell for laughing, so maybe you shouldn’t read it. That would be safer and wiser.”

If you are wondering what's all this WOYWW, head over to Julia's The Stamping Ground, and have a gander. Better yet, take a picture of your own workdesk and join in the fun :D.

WOYWW - 158

First, where I was last weekend: the Washington Mall in Washington, D.C. with 250,000ish other girl scouts. (Google Rock the Mall to see more). Our group huddled under umbrellas for shelter against the sun, but we left hours early. One of those so glad we went, and so glad we left early (because of the heat) events.

Crafting has been temporarily abandoned while I worked on some other things. While I haven't actually finished the page I was working on for so long, it's been moved to the side so I could make some cards.

And yesterday I received my birthday present from my oldest younger sister, Papertrey Ink's Stamp-A-Faire! I packed everything up so it will be ready to go. I'm so excited I can hardly wait till next month!

So What's on Your Workdesk this Wednesday? Scuttle over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in the fun, or just have a nose around workdesks around the world :D.
