Happy WOYWW 
Here's my Space today with a little Happy mail from Tracy that I won a while ago and it's all to do with CHRISTMAS !!! So Kewl to have won it and love the new stamp that will be on a few cards 
Seeing I've been making lots of them when ever I can find the time. The Red paper goes in my cards as inserts so most of the cards can be reused if people need one in a pinch. Why not make Pay it forward cards the bigger ones have one sheet in them with a paper clip holding them in place so they can just swap out the paper and easy new card for someone 
Pull out of my whole space the witch had to be up top seeing Halloween is this weekend I still don't know what I will be but I do know BLUE hair is going to happen  and that's about all I know lol
Here's my whole space you can see the untouched pumpkin Paper mache in the corner so sad I haven't done anything to it perhaps it will get done over next year or be scraped :P

thanks for popping in
Hugs Nikki
I'll try to visit everyone I can too

Happy WOYWW so as you can see the Stud Muffin also LOVES Pencils to chew on I have a few that are pretty icky but he passed by them when I said a quick NO!! lol
So kitty moved his butt out of the way so I could snap a picture of my space it's all about Christmas at the moment seeing I have so many more cards to make. Where does the time go, I've made a few for the Caring Card Drive and those just need to be signed and mailed out.

So the Little Man Shed is all done it's his domain and it's a cutie for sure can you say TINY house or What. I love how it turned out it looks like it's been here for a very long time just refreshed with some new paint. The Windows look like we reclaimed them too so who can tell they are brand new lol which is what we wanted 
 Here's the side of the little shed
It would have been kewl if he made the windows open up but he thought it wasn't necessary
The Door we reused it was our old side door and now it doesn't matter if cold air get by it the shed is not heated.

So that's it for me this week and I'll try my best to visit everyone that I can

It's that time again where we all show off our spaces sorry about not getting around to everyone's blog I was so busy I hardly had any fun time on the computer at all but I did manage 5 stained glass windows last week and they are put in place only 1 left to go and I can focus in on Christmas cards and figuring out what to be for halloween !!!

So I can spare a little time tonight to colour a few cards in which I plan on making a few CAS for Caring Heart Drive which I will have to make ASAP then my stuff next :)

I know I have a lot of pencils if you wanna mail me more GO FOR IT LOL I love them all 

Some are super old I have some Prisma colors that I've had since I was a teenager and they do feel different from the ones in the stores today the old ones have less waxy feeling if that makes sense.
So in this pile is also Watercolour and Chalk pencils, I have Crayolas too metallic ones 

Here are the window I made for our shed there is another small skinny one on the other side of the bump out 
I love how they turned out will take a picture of the front once the last window is complete 
it's the toughest I think :)

When you see the shed I know your all going to think TINY HOUSE !!!!
it's so cute and the DH is really talented craftsman when it comes to building stuff
and he stole all my reclaimed wood from our house and used it to cover 2 walls
but it looks good and I'll just have to do some .... OMG dumpster diving when I see some builders
ripping apart some of our old house cause that's the wood I wanna work with

thanks for popping in and I'll try to visit everyone that
leaves a message :)

Well I didn't get around to much paper crafts this week I did manage a doodle or two in one of my books but I did manage to finish two more windows for our shed. These ones are going on either side of our door now only 6 more to go Yikes 
But I love how this pattern turned out it already feels like an old window 

So here's my space this week and it's really cleaned off a lot because I could only colour the last 2 nights seeing I cleared off all the stained glass supplies just to try and make a lot of Christmas cards Under 80 days to go AHHHHHH!!! lol 
Other wise everything is off the top and jammed anywhere but here while I make my window up seeing It's so tough to do them in the hall way hunched over them This will all be cleared away tomorrow to make another window/s (2 down 6 to go)

so Happy WOYWW
