HAPPY WOYWW and only a little more time for the big reveal with all those ATC swaps 
So here is my space this week I'm working on Window number 2 it's smaller then the 1st one but coming along I'll be working on it lots more this week to get it all done and ready put into the spot it belongs. Here is a look down on it 
 Then here is a look Up on my desk the Lamp shade I made ages ago ... I love how they turn out but I honestly like to make windows a lot better.  So everything is stacked out of the way to give be space for my window
So here is the 1st one all done and put up so nice to look at and happy it's done

seeing we are doing all of these updates in our house we've found some really kewl little things in it 
who ever built it had some expensive taste for somethings cause in our sunroom we are in the middle of just updating it alittle when we found this hidden underneath all the boring wood paneling we've never seen this before
This is painted old safety glass with the wire inside it we've cleaned all the peeling paint off it and are going to keep it on one side and have wood paneling on the outside but this must have looked amazing in it's day seeing the house was built in the 1920's the DH is going to add in some molding and trims all around to make it look like it's never been touched.
This is just so kewl to have found 

Happy Wed hugs Nikki
I'll pop around to as many peeps as I can 
and I'll be sharing all the ATC's when it's the big WOYWW# 6

This week our sponsor is Stitchy Bear Outlet and I'm using a Stitchy Bear Stamp called Busted 
Now this little puppy really isn't exotic until I created Antlers on him and made him a mini Reindeer these are a very rare breed and their antlers can be removed at a moments notice lol
I digitally add in the "What is so" it's actually on there you just can't read it with the glossy effects over top.

Happy WOYWW and it's getting close to that time where we all SWAP our ATC's all over the world.  I have made more then I ever expected to so far I'm at 27 (2 for me and 25 to Swap) with one still to colour in but it will get done and I've mailed out most of them I have made 2 lots of them seeing I love to support the post office lol. Funny I haven't sent one to Canada ever for this swap ever lol !!!
So my desk is pretty Bare with very little on it seeing I was working on another stained glass window this week took a picture of it so you could all see it. It's based on the smaller ones that I just fixed up
So here's my space all labeled up
In the Happy Mail is my 1st COPIC marker I've never owned one till now so can't wait to use that 
some adorable tags and sweet little bows and flowers. 

So left to pop in the post which I'm hoping will be done on Wed for the last 3 
envelopes waiting to go out 
all to the UK too !!
Pull Back of my space everything Pushed UP high
Window Almost done have to cement it (meaning use some putty to make it air tight)
and use some Black Patina on it so it no longer looks new 
So I have 3 ATC's Left to swap let me know 
If anyone wants to let me know.

So here's my desk it's a slight dumping grounds seeing I haven't been crafting cards much more like stain glass windows I have two to design and create for two long side windows they are going to be based on the ones I showed last week most likely stretched longer to match them all in which I think will work really nice normally I create Victorian style but this time it's prairie style which is a nice change just a lot of straight lines with some thinking involved on making sure they all go the right way :) 
So you can see all my 12 by 12 and large sheets tossed on my desk yep my space isn't that tidy just shoved up 

Still have a few ATC's To swap leave a comment if you want to 
I will mail anywhere 
hugs Nikki

I will pop around and visit all who visit me too

Happy Wed Everyone it's WOYWW time !!! and Only A few more weeks till the big ATC Swap too
Right now everything is still jammed on my shelves giving me the whole desk to play with I was using it to paint a wooden sign so far all I've done is added a base coat and then am trying to figure out what I want to write on it . Perhaps a none working clock and quote "Time stands still when I'm with you" I'm such a mushy girl at times lol. So below I'm reworking my personal cookbook that I use as a quick go to for making food and some recipes I want to try out I was on my last few pages and thought why not update and take out ones I'll never use . 

 Kay Asked last week how I labeled everything I used adobe to write on the picture and all my boxes are just labeled with number labels in my attempt to make them look old like I guess just more of a neutral look the caddy has my 3-d flowers (Wild Orchaid) and Inks that I've just used little stickers and used the ink so grabbing them is quick on the colours 
I pretty well know where everything is seeing I don't have to much stash that I play with 
My washi tape loose in an open one (try and remind myself to use it)
1001 = Flat mini and Large flowers 
1002 = Metal Findings and dew drops , couple odds and ends
and here is one of the windows back in place it's like night and day with this it
adds so much more light in you can see the tape there on the edge holding it while the caulking is setting up. 

I STILL HAVE SOME ATC TO SWAP will send anywhere :)
leave a message if you want to 
Have a sun shiny Wed

Well my space has been changed this week seeing the DH choose to take out a couple stain glass windows in our house that I had planned on repairing well that's what I've been doing changed out the border glass from a Pinky purple to a nice antique yellow which looks 100 times better and none of that horrible paint job the last people who owned this place did where you painting blind I ask they have invented this thing called painters tape ??? . Shame I just found out the yellow antique glass is getting harder and harder to get in Canada seeing it comes from England shipping is making it expensive perhaps I'll check out a few other stores and see if they are still getting it in might just be this one only.
 Redone one and the next one to be done what a big difference it has now just looks so much better with the yellow.

So this is my space for this week 
Where did everything go it's all jammed up on my shelf and beside my desk on my trunk 
this is not a clean job to do and I have my trusty shop vac beside me seeing it can be so messy

Happy WOYWW 
Hugs Nikki
I'll visit as many people as I can 

I still have ATC to trade leave a message and I send you one out

Faking it !!

This week at Incy Wincy we have to sponsors Flat Friends and Dilly Beans and we want to see you create something faux. I tried something different with Faux Brads I used my hole punch and used the paper from that then burnished them underneath and added on a little glossy effects for shiny brads once in place. The snow is using some little fun glittery fibers that I love and glitter glue to keep it sparkling. The image is from Flat Friends - Reindeer kisses

WOYWW + Winners

Happy WoYWW and here's my space this week working on a DT creations and I've got an envelope all set to mail off to Miss Julia for the big WOYWW crop So I still have 3 ATC's To trade and if I make some more I'll be happy to swap more it's fun so in total I've made 18 of them which just was one big colouring fest I'll share them on my WOYWW #6 post and just share my fave 2 with you here when I announce the winner...s From last week with the ATC image I used 
Here is my space and I've labeled it all up for you :)

Now I don't know if this will work but the marker that is standing up I have the tip I always use facing down hoping the ink will make it's way into it seeing it's slightly  not as strong as it use to be unless I use the other side it's working perfectly.
 Here are my two fave and none of the ATC's look alike I just to play with colours. When I was making them and I loved colouring up the zombie girls it's just fun there is no mistake when you create creepy images a mistake is just an added bit of detail/depth./EWW you did that lol.
 Limited Runs Two Faced Girl
Zombie and Normal
and here are my Winners
I pulled 3 names out and just need your email
and I'll send you these two Digi
Pat Taviss
Kristina Majuri

Have a wonderful day

Beach Baby

A Day at the beach and here is a stamp I won from Holley she's a Sweet Pea Stamp from Elizabeth Bell she's just a cutie. She's so cute and I wanted to make it feel like a day at the beach. Where it's still to cold to be. But Soon :)
I stamped this image on the back of one of my scrap papers and it has a shiney effect on it that worked out in my favor seeing it gave her a look like she's been in the sun a little to long and is starting to burn.
