I'm not sure today I really have a desk. More like a pile here and one over there one down the hall and few in the spare room my stuff is all over in tiny little piles and it will eventually find it's home again but the floors are down to last few rows and the room has been repainted seeing I'm a messy girl lol 
LEAD when it hits the walls leaves a mark ... Paint when flicked goes everywhere and Yep that's my story lol Artists need creative spaces where they can MUCK about !!! After 26 Years he's getting use to it most days some days I can just drive him nuts Oh and the carpet has a layer of PLASTIC under it to protect the floors ... Wonder why that is lol

My Desk - Poor Mascots just chucked about :P

 Sewing Supplies all my stamps and ATC albums (In and Going Out) 
My Fave is the antique Shot gun box for my 12 by 12 papers

Wow Where did the week Go I want to know ... Seriously it was like POOF gone !!!
So here is my space I'm on Window # 2 of 5 now YAH!!! and the wood floors are still on going down they are done in our bedroom so we just moved all our stuff back in and the hallways are done next it's the spare room then this ROOM !!! I will have to move everything out and then back in later once the floors are done (walls will have to be painted in here seeing I'm so messy lol)
This room has a lot of uses... I create my windows in here, Craft, Paint paintings, Sew. Draw Play on the computer when I can get it and do Yoga in here seeing this is the only carpeted area that doesn't slide easy on. (I use the wall a lot) too for Yoga and for Taping my art all over too so once he sees all the white not so white the painting will begin for sure :)

Hugs Nikki 
I'll try my best to visit everyone I can but lots going on lately

Postcard Set

Every once in a while you just want to create something special with an image well this round at Incy Wincy we are creating Small and Round and we  got to play with 4 of his newest images so I thought why not create a set of postcards with them which I love to do it seems these days

Now the 1st three I'm sharing are perfect for the challenge of no words but the top postcard/holder has a simple little sentiment on it for whomever I give this set to. Here is the set all together with close ups. Who needs simple hair I really should get a few fun streaks added in my own hair (one day)

WOYWW + BD Candy

Happy WOYWW and today is my BD (28th) along with Kay too HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAY!!!
So I've finished my Windows and had some time to make it into the craft room to use PAPER which is nice change. There are four which are allowing the cement to get good and dry then I'll patina them and clean them up really well when they go up. So Here is my Space this week  doing a little colouring up and drinking a mocha coffee which I love to do !!
New Set of 4 Windows to be installed 
Last set of windows all installed these are against thermal Windows which are great
get the look and the comfort of staying warm too.

Surprise Candy I'll put a little something together that won't be to killer on postage so I can send it
anywhere in the world. Might be new might be old stamps and stash I'm no longer using but have a good life left and to be loved by another !!! Let me know if you want to be included and if you can share it on your sidebar that would be great too
this is also to make up for my lack of comments I've just been awful at them lately
so much going on and everytime I try to get the computer the other half wants it too 
so limited time to type out 
Here's a button for it and it will end  in two weeks !!!
on my next WOYWW post :)

Squeak and his coffee addiction !!!

Hello all here is Squeak and he's seriously enjoying every drop of coffee in that cup as you can see
He's from Limited Runs and he comes as a set with a free sentiment "I am Not a Coffee Addict" My printer ink is out so I had to hand write the sentiment seeing the sentiment was just to faint to read but great for no line coloring lol

It's that time again to share our spaces and here's mine 
I finished putting together all the windows and have to do the messy part of putting in the cement so the glass doesn't jiggle and makes them more air tight but that will be later this week and right now I'm playing catch up have to do some mailing of BD cards and present out to Kay we have the same BD so we've been swapping for a while now. Mine is going to be late it looks like this year. I've been so good guess it's time for me to be behind lol
Just doing a little colouring and organizing a few things I had grouped together with bits and scraps how quickly they add up :)

So I should be able to get around this week as last week I was tad busy

Boys cards can Sparkle

Our Challenge at Incy Wincy this round is sponsored from Sasayaki Glitter and Melonheadz
I wish I had more time but alas I did manage 4 really simple cards for winter and they are all BOYZ so Bonus seeing they are always so hard to make I fine. Adding in Sparkle to a boys card can be challenging unless you have Micro Bling then it just works at least in my books it does. 
I love these Bobble head guys the set also has girls and I'm working on those later but for now here they are all matching up and super quick and easy and flat to mail !!


Challenges -
Christmas Cards - Anything Christmas
Great Impressions - Masculine - 7/2
Connie Can Crop - It's a Guy Thing 6/30
