Happy WOYWW  So Here is my desk this week the cards I know tidy right I had to flip the cards upside down to hide them for the time being but my little shop Limited Runs is joining in the Fall Coffee hop this year. I'm excited to do something totally different for me So I'm trying to make a few creations up for it. I've never had help with it and never had a DT ever but I do have one amazing gal Hev helping me on facebook and she's been a wonderful dream and so helpful to me it's fab cause let's be honest I'd get distracted and forget somedays ... artists we can get so flaky as the DH says Lost in one thing or another ... OH is that a SHINY BOBBLE LOL!!
Found this punch and stamp set at Dollarama for only $ 4.00 it's an EK success set that use to sell in Micheals for Over $30. but shipping would cost a wee bit for sure it's a heavy punch and the stamps are on a think foam so it would be a package I can weight = 650 grams with no package
 Now Here is my space sorting through the last of my old Halloween stash if you see something message me it all can be sold (the stuff in the packages ) stamps, Dies,Paper Stickers and I have more but it don't fit on my desk 

Have a wonderful day and I'll try to get around to as many people as I can :)

WOYWW + Windows + Giveaway

So Here is my space this week I'm starting another Pocket Letter up and these are fantastic I'm actually burning through all my Halloween papers which I've really been trying to use up all my open stock ,  as a personal mission of mine ... WHY do they make so many pretty papers. Oh yah so I can become a hoarder of papers lol and other goodies it's tough to stay limited but it does work (sometimes) I've just started getting into washi a little WOW ... I'm screwed if I start buying tons of that takes forever to go through a roll and I will use Washi for anything after I've owned it for a while.
So as Promised here is the Sun room Windows all done this gives you the feeling of it all it's Rustic, yet artistic seeing everyone know that we are very artsy fartsy  people the neighbor across the street wanted to hire us to re-do her front walk way and landscape her yard it's a nice compliment but alas we do this for ourselves. I`d be willing to help her a little in the planning stage cause that is always fun :)
Love the ceiling in here how the wood is leaking all the brown it looks so amazing to look at when your in there 


Leave another comment here for a 2nd entry in my giveaway 
it would be great if you follow along and if you could post a picture in your sidebar to share
with others winner pulled SEPT 6th
