Right now I only have time for quick crafting this took like 3 days to make cause I just had a little time to colour, then another day to cut out the image then today make it into something so as you can see I've been busy.

Happy WOYWW  here's my little space this week tissues are a must it's ragweed season here and I'm allergic to that plant. I've started on a few Christmas cards that will be flat so they can be popped into the post for the cost of a stamp to get me going and you can still see my piles of glass and that orange thing is a tool used for my stained glass it really doesn't have a name more like a thing of a ma-jiggy
So here are the one of the sets of windows I tried to take a picture so you could see the design I have finished 8 of them now just 12 more to go and it looks like I'll be waiting on supplies seeing now one has what I need in stock at the moment.... Guess I'll just have to craft instead the hard ships lol
I'll try my best to visit you all as soon as I can 
sorry if I missed you last week

Happy WED everyone I really try to get around and visit you all but it's tough some times so I managed to knock off 4 windows off my list WHOO HOO now to slowly work on the rest there is so much to do before they even go into the frames and cleaning them TAKES what feels like forever but it will get done. So I'll share with you what I have done so far and Helen , I was working on the floor too so your not the only girl hanging out on the floor this week :)
One of the chemicals you use when cutting glass is kerosene and I try to never have a full jar seeing I've spilled it more times then I can count ... let's just say my room smells and don't light a match on my table at the moment
The two big windows
The two little ones 
The frame they will be going into
I think I'm going to miss how much the old windows 
use to open but I'm sure these will be just fine for air flow
and look 100 times better

So on to my desk this week well I am trying to sneak in a few quick cards just 
to add to my collection and keep it stocked up it's getting low but haven't really made any did print a few digi off but haven't even coloured them up. Plans best made just not followed through ... internet surfing and wandering around blogs looking at inspiration instead lol

thanks for stopping by

WOYWW - Geek SERIES !!! lol

Happy WOYWW well here's my space this week and I'll be into the stainglass for a while I have to make 20 windows YEP 20 of them YIKES !!! that's a lot of paper cuts coming my way for sure we are redoing the windows in our sunroom and DH is starting on the frames that goodness he can make those It's going to look really nice and I will share pictures with you all I've just been trying to figure out a design but I need ##'s for sizes so I can work on the pattern of things etc I can draw rough images but I won't know if they will work till I get the size of each window to see if the design will fit or need to be tweaked. 

Now Check this out for those of  you overseas Canada Post has the GEEK series of stamps.Now if only they could make DR Who stamps lol that would be the BOMB 
or if we really wanna get geeky how about Red Dwarf stamps ... I love the BBC we use to get it for free on TV when we didn't have cable the few channels that we did get, had that on it.  

So have a Happy WED and I will pop around to as many people as I can
