Part of a card front in the making, still tinkering. I have a vision, but reality is not matching that at the moment lol. Actually that happens with regularity but usually I can make something out of it. This week the spindle I was experimenting on went so far off the track I actually threw it away.

The painter's tape is corralling some seed beads. And I broke down and bought something, Dylusions Sprays (sunshine and a red color). With a coupon (love coupons) at Joann's. So happy about that. Really it's the little things lol. And about the clockworks I left at the store last week, I should have mentioned, that had they been on sale, I probably would have picked up a couple of more. I am not made of stone : D.

Today I received the gift of unexpected cupcakes (it's my birthday week) : D. And not just any cupcakes, Georgetown Cupcakes (aka DC cupcakes).

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

I don't like it when the vision in my head does one thing and it doesn't match up to what you have in front of you.

Happy Birthday for when it comes! Hope you have a lovely day full of surprises (nice ones of course).
Dylusions prays at Joannes? None there when I was over in January. Too long to wait until next year so must top up my small supply soon. You enjoy them.
Hope the vision materialises soon for you.
Happy WOYWW - Hugs, Neet 1 xx

Now that's a good idea with the beads, mine fly all over the place. I hardly ever start a project with any idea of where I'm heading, maybe that's why so many of them end up in the bin, bit I have fun on the way.
Thanks for visiting already, just about to make my second cup of tea, then back in bed where its snug and warm and I can watch the slight flurries of snow past the window. Will have to get up soon as Sorrel will want her walk.
Happy birthday week.

OOh Sally, it 's that way for me...the transition between brain and hand makes a totally different project. I hate it, but the more I fight....! Happy Birthday week..have you eaten them all yet? Glad you caved in and got the you can give us an honest enduser based assessment. Although I already know the colours are gorgeous..I wanna know about clogging and spray versus dribble etc!!

Am I too late to wish you a happy birthday? I hope not!! Obviously I didn't play in WOYWW this week, but I DID stop by to see what was going on in your world.

If I'm a bit late, I hope you had a great birthday. And of course, Happy, Happy Easter.
