WOYWW + Winner

Happy WOYWW!!! Here is my space today I've been playing with my H20 Paints a little which I just love the shimmer of them and am starting on a pocket letter for my sister she wants to do a swap which is easier for us seeing no letter has to be sent. So far I've just cut out some bg papers and that's as far along as I am I have coloured a few images and trying to see if I like it I'm not even sure what type it will be as you can tell this is not a planned PL more like humm let's see if that works. I've been looking on Pinterest for ideas which becomes over load of ideas and then I look back at my blank canvas with a blank stare lol It will come together that I'm sure of it just have to figure out what I want. Tossed between something winter like or something floral is what I'm torn between

I was asked about the little boxes on the lower shelf
I made them out of Oatmeal boxes and wrapped them in kraft paper
the Insert drawers are just a piece of heavy cardstock folded to fit inside and I decorated the fronts with kraft paper and stamps. The black boxes I picked up at my local dollar store along time ago

This week's PINK PINK Candy Winner is SHARON 
please send me your snail mail so I can pop this in the post to you if I don't hear from you by next WOYWW post then I'll pick a new winner (link in side bar)

Here's what Sharon Won !!

Sorry if you didn't win this week I'm sure to have another candy later on at some time :)
thanks for popping in and I'll try my best to visit you all
Updates
The Mirror frame I was working on has been neglected this week so there's not to much to show on that so far. I'll take a picture when it's done

WOYWW + Candy #2 & Winner

HAPPY WOYWW here's my space this week 
I'm painting an old frame to become a bathroom mirror. The frame is old and lovely but the dark colour it was before was painted on to dark. It only has one coat of paint so it's looking pretty
F-UGLY at the moment up close, a couple more layers and a little sanding it should look what I'm hoping for in my head I hope.
It seems I've been going a little crazy on the pink these days as it's the only colour  I seem to be using on my desk humm not sure how I feel about only pink , does it go with my dark desk lol 
I also just signed up for a pocket letter swap Here   last day to join is  22nd -No theme but who ever I get is getting a Pink themed one it's just what's going on at the moment it seems.
Hope they like it when done I've got a few more pockets to make up then put the little gifts behind everything and pop it in the post.

Young Love

Here's one of the Newest images from Limited Runs it's a sweet little couple in a window Called
"YOUNG LOVE" You can pick it up for Only $2.00 too !!!
Now this card is using a bit of OLD stash that I just happened across while tiding up and the next thing I know it's being used so WHOO HOO !! I haven't used this handmade paper in forever and I just used it Twice today. The Sentiment is from Simon Says Love Labels. When I took this stamp off I noticed the "E" was a missing some of it so a quick go over with a sharpie and Voila  all fixed.
The windows have a WOW embossing on them in Clear Pearl and the tag has Matte Embossing which is so amazing to use as it just adds richness to the image and enhances the colours.
