Happy Wed Everyone

Well the front door saga continues on for me last week I was saying how I was hoping to see how the blue would look with the black around the edges that was until I found out I used the WRONG !!! wrong Primer I used inside paint then painted over with exterior paint lets just say the door had to be heat gunned again OMG!! RIGHT !!! and then re-sanded then painted all over again well the DH took the heat gun to the blue and removed it all let's just say I read the top of the can, I didn't realize that there where two of the same colour and opps plus he got what he wanted NO more Blue
The door had to be brought back to it's basic wood (Stripped all paint off) and the trim around it and it NO LONGER looks like the same door now it's like something you see in a magazine for sure I think I'll post this on Houzz afterwords just to see how people like it (and Inflate his ego even more LOL). Well we went out of our comfort Zone with the DOOR Colour and it so works still needs a few finishing touches like handles and the knocker but it's looking sweet ... I AM SO LOVIN IT !!!

So alright on to my desk for the week ... stained glass supplies have been put away for now and on to crafting and creating so here's my space YEP look away if you don't wanna see Christmas lol

If you thought my desk was clean last week this week it's all been shoved off of it so I can cut some glass on top of it for some stained glass windows I'm working on to go in as sidelight for our front door which I finished taking all the paint off of sanding priming and painting it a nice blue only to have the DH think it needs to be a different colour seeing it blends in to much and you don't notice it's blue. UGG!!! I kind of agree but want to wait to see once we paint the black trim around it and see how that looks then lol.
Life has been hectic for me that I'm hardly any computer time
I did manage a few new drawings this week that I hope to find the time to turn into digital stamps

So here's my NAKED DESK!!!
Where everything has been SHOVED OFF TOO!!!
1st Sidelight for our front door not done yet but will be soon

So I'll try to pop in as many peeps blogs as I can

Where does the time go is it that time again to show you my little space well I'd like to say I've been super creative but alas I haven't done much at all but I know there is lots to do in my mind lol I did start another christmas card seeing I'm only up to 25 and that is soooo not enough it seems for me so I've got to at least make another 50ish to cover all that I will need 
 Little close up still on not using christmas papers for my cards but I love using black at christmas it's just so striking against all the other colours out there. So that little pile on the right of papers is all my 6 by 6 christmas I own at the moment about 40 sheets I guess and this is me laying out the card and about to make it into a a 5-7 cause I want more pink in it 
Happy WOYWW and you can find the link in my side bar 

I'll visit as many peeps as I can but I'm sure it will be later for some with all we have going on at the moment 

hugs Nikki
