It's that time again so here is what you all came to see my not so tidy space (at least to me) So I've labeled everything up for you all to see what's what and the painting is done and hanging in it's spot. Looks nice too. Last weekend I stripped all the paint off our front door and then sanded it lightly and added in some primer and then have to paint it a blue/teal colour taken alot longer then I thought it would so I didn't craft much this week seeing I was outside most of it and we've been having a heat way so everything take so long to dry 
So that's it for my space this week I'll pop around to as many as I can

Happy WOYWW well here is my desk this week it's hidden behind the HUGE painting (3 by 6 ft) that we wanted behind the sofa The DH requested something Abstract that you can stare at and see things in it and to match up with the space well this is what I came up with. it has 3 main colours in it. Which I like working with few colours it seems I didn't go for any other then what I had out.
I'm actually really happy with how this turned out and it has a bunch of layers over it now all I have to do is seal it up and hang it on the wall.

Update on the Sun room it's mostly finished has a touch of painting to do around some edges then we get to do the fun stuff PUT STUFF IN IT :) 
The Ceiling is suppose to look this way need to have a little rustic popping in to show age
With a touch of Fancy Plaster Crown molding and then the floors sanded down and sealed up and we now have some sweet wainscotting around the bottom.
So that's what we've been up to and it's been keeping us busy for sure and it's finally nice again here no more super hot days and it's 25 out with a wonderful breeze that I just love. Not to hot not to cold just RIGHT !!! 

HUGS Nikki 

Christmas in July with a Penguin

This week at Incy Wincy it's all about things with Wings and I've used a little penquin from Aurora Wings. This paper was so not me but I like how it all came together I think using the cream paint really tied it all together to give it a wintery effect

Well it's that time again and here are a few more boxes that hold my stash on and yes I've started making some Christmas in July Cards just to try and get a few done seeing I've been slowing down in that department it seems so I've just been working on toppers still have to make the card bases up but that's the easy part so here's my embossing powder box which is a big one and a bling box which I just found some stashed away and added it to it. I really have to start using lots of it up it seems :)

For my christmas cards I've been using a lot of paper that isn't for that season but dressing them up and stamping them to make it look like they do. Seeing I really want to burn through some of this paper I have ... doesn't take long to get a lot it seems 

Have a wonderful day and I'll try to get around to more peeps this week last week I don't know where it went to POOF it was gone ... must have been having a good time

Happy WOYWW things are coming along and my desk is SNORE Boring so I thought I'd open up some of my little boxes and share what's inside them. I made my own magnetic die book and once it's full I plan on rotating those I no longer use out and pop em up for sale. 
Bling and Sequins How can you not want to have some sparkles
, Pre-done Punches and Dies , Flocking Micro Beads and Glitter 
 FAVE Box EVER !!! Brad box It's full and I'm trying to use them 
and my little mini Christmas mini box of stuff

Oh and I thought I'd share a little progress on the sun room 
well the glass we decided just wasn't working to damaged and went with wood instead 
and found that the floors underneath that nasty pink carpet are in great condition so they will be saved
The DH has done all of this and I'm amazed at how it's looking 
Now I'm going to share the ceiling which is done being painted and love how it's has some brown running through it. His plaster that he has going around the room this is one of my favorite molds it's so fancy and the light looks perfect in this space. Yep we have a lot of WHITE IN THIS house so what we add in each room pops

WOYWW

Happy WOYWW well sorry for those I didn't get back to last week. 
So A little Happy Mail showed up from Pasty we swapped ATC and she was on holidays and sent me 2 beautiful hand painted ATC cards for running late, feeling spoiled I am :) 
So Here is my space it's been tidied up and I made an extra drawer unit to hide my crafty stuff 
and I just like it looking neat and I have a terrible habit of moving stuff around and put stuff I'm not using to much away to see if I can make it work easier. So I'm just popping Patsy's ATC's into my little book with the rest of mine to keep them safe  also on my desk is a Birthday Card from Darnell with that adorable TH birdie on it and one from my sister too. 
The pile of cards is those I'm starting for My DT stuff and they will eventually get done
That's all that is going on at the moment 
Update on my Harvest table It's still being made I've got the top done and part of the legs still need to add in the support bars but it's been raining here a lot and it needs to be sanded and can't do that on wet wood, we've had some wild weather lately and I hope it dries up for a small spell :)
Here is a picture so far
the legs so need to be beefed up and made to look really solid ... not like it needs to be any heavier but it will in the end !!!It's just over 9 feet by roughly 3 feet lots of room 

Hugs Nikki
I'll try to pop around to as many peeps as possible and check out Julia's (link in sidebar) to see what everyone else is doing

Close up of my little space hiding to DT cards I'm working on for upcoming challenges 
So here' my little space this week

Under the Sea

This week we've made it super easy on you all ANYTHING GOES !!! and our sponsor is PPinky Dolls.
Here's what I've done. I've used one of her images and Mirrored on an extra little seahorse to give a little extra going on This is all painted in Watercolours there is something about PPinky images that make me want to use different mediums and not use a pen on them I guess I like them to have a softer effect.

Well it looks like my ATC's arrived from the crop ... Canada post why are you so slow is all !!

3rd Row
Bluebeard and Elizabeth,Chris(Pearshaped),Eliza,Julia,Rosa


So now for the pull back and I've been painting and pulled out my paints instead of paper crafting 
The DH thinks this is has a feminine feeling to it and he wants something darker for the next one 
and small board on the desk in front with the yellow and whites is a sample board for another Painting that will be much darker and richer colours
Honestly this wasn't what it was going to be on these boards I was think an old looking sign and 
somewhere between the paintbrush and the boards this happened
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it now maybe some details around the edges I just don't know 

thanks for stopping in
