Happy WOYWW everyone!!!

Here's where the stained glass windows went  on to the garage now if it wasn't fancy before it really is now  This is just the picture from my window where I craft ... I know the garden is being worked on so it's a little dreadfully boring at the moment 
BTW this is HIS TOOL SHED I have nothing to do with it other then my Halloween and Stained Glass supplies are stored inside it. He know's where everything is and keeps it tidy himself :P

Well today my desk isn't that full of creativeness going on it does have some new stash my sister sent me I've started making pocket letters so she sent me some small extra stash she wasn't using and sent it along ... Now I will say this some of it was birthday presents my sister is HORRIBLE at waiting on me to open it she wants to know how much I like the stuff it was all fantastic  ... I could have waited but nope she was on the phone the whole time with me while I opened it up (she's always so excited about giving gifts that she could have blown up waiting lol)  then she asked me are you going to take a picture ... only for me to realize I've already started putting some of it away without even realizing it lol so a few things got put away but that's just how I am lol  ... That is Minion Hand wipes just for those who are Minion nuts  he's cute.

So here's the pull out shot of my desk with all my stash I did make a coffee gift card but that's about it
Now to Fit all that other Ribbon on my desk into this already Crammed packed little drawer!!
Mostly all taken off the rolls and re-rolled and tucked into little bags to keep them rolled 
I know It's a little insane but it works for me Really well this is the best way I've figured so far :)

Happy Crafting everyone and Have a wonderful week 
Also my Candy will be ending NEXT WEEK I lost track of the days last time so there is still time to enter ...
I have found one nugget of bad news Canada Post might get LOCKED out on July 2nd so I'm hoping they don't cause how will I send out Happy Birthday cards and Happy Mail UGG and the bills ah Whatever lol .  But will wait and see how that turns out maybe Uber will start delivering world wide mail too lol 

Hugs Nikki 

Hello there little fox

To Enter my Candy Please go here 

This challenge at Incy Wincy we only have Just ME digital Stamps as our sponsor.  We also had to add a button and a bow well I kinda cheated using a brad button lol but it is a button. I used the cute little fox and coloured him us with my pencils and used a Simon Says Hello die that I love to use.  I used some papers I normally wouldn't use and I like how it turned out with that soft background this card has already been mailed out so I'm hoping the person who gets this likes it.

Here is my space this week It's pretty tidy seeing I'm in the middle of making a stained glass window it's the 4th one and the last one so not to bad at all 
So I've laid out all my happy mail and the lovely card Judy made me (big one)
smaller one is from Lynne (my fellow Canadian on the west coast )
Here are the ATC's From the swap that I got this week :) 
Here's the last window to work on have to stretch out the lead then put it all together I have most of the glass cut out just have to get it all done there are 4 matching windows like you've seen before 
these are only 10 inches by 30 and the other 2 where smaller which went pretty quickly 
K well I'm off to make the last window that the DH wanted Yesterday lol but alas I can only make them once I get the measurements and he still wishes he could snap his fingers and they be done. But I've been working on them pretty quickly so it's getting there 
Happy WOYWW and I'll try my best to get around to as many people as I can 
hugs Nikki

Pocket Letter Swap

Here is the last pocket I sent out for Roni's swap. I forgot to take a picture of it before I sent it off but the address I sent it to was off by one number and that one didn't exist so they sent it back to me so now I can share it with you all seeing I did have to repackage it and it should arrive shorty to Michele without any delays now 
I love the bg paper so that is where this was all inspired from all the embellishments have been altered so they go really well with the bold reds I hope Michele likes this I did use a lot of embossing on the camera with black and gold. On the just a note using embossing powder makes everything richer in the colours and matches the prefectly.
Here's the backside of it with all the goodies mostly wrapped up so it will all be a suprise when she opens it. The letter is tucked behind the coffee mug or tea if your like me and could drink a gallon at one time lol. I even used the left over paper to make a few matching tags too.
