Happy Wed Everyone it's WOYWW time !!! and Only A few more weeks till the big ATC Swap too
Right now everything is still jammed on my shelves giving me the whole desk to play with I was using it to paint a wooden sign so far all I've done is added a base coat and then am trying to figure out what I want to write on it . Perhaps a none working clock and quote "Time stands still when I'm with you" I'm such a mushy girl at times lol. So below I'm reworking my personal cookbook that I use as a quick go to for making food and some recipes I want to try out I was on my last few pages and thought why not update and take out ones I'll never use . 

 Kay Asked last week how I labeled everything I used adobe to write on the picture and all my boxes are just labeled with number labels in my attempt to make them look old like I guess just more of a neutral look the caddy has my 3-d flowers (Wild Orchaid) and Inks that I've just used little stickers and used the ink so grabbing them is quick on the colours 
I pretty well know where everything is seeing I don't have to much stash that I play with 
My washi tape loose in an open one (try and remind myself to use it)
1001 = Flat mini and Large flowers 
1002 = Metal Findings and dew drops , couple odds and ends
and here is one of the windows back in place it's like night and day with this it
adds so much more light in you can see the tape there on the edge holding it while the caulking is setting up. 

I STILL HAVE SOME ATC TO SWAP will send anywhere :)
leave a message if you want to 
Have a sun shiny Wed

Well my space has been changed this week seeing the DH choose to take out a couple stain glass windows in our house that I had planned on repairing well that's what I've been doing changed out the border glass from a Pinky purple to a nice antique yellow which looks 100 times better and none of that horrible paint job the last people who owned this place did where you painting blind I ask they have invented this thing called painters tape ??? . Shame I just found out the yellow antique glass is getting harder and harder to get in Canada seeing it comes from England shipping is making it expensive perhaps I'll check out a few other stores and see if they are still getting it in might just be this one only.
 Redone one and the next one to be done what a big difference it has now just looks so much better with the yellow.

So this is my space for this week 
Where did everything go it's all jammed up on my shelf and beside my desk on my trunk 
this is not a clean job to do and I have my trusty shop vac beside me seeing it can be so messy

Happy WOYWW 
Hugs Nikki
I'll visit as many people as I can 

I still have ATC to trade leave a message and I send you one out

Faking it !!

This week at Incy Wincy we have to sponsors Flat Friends and Dilly Beans and we want to see you create something faux. I tried something different with Faux Brads I used my hole punch and used the paper from that then burnished them underneath and added on a little glossy effects for shiny brads once in place. The snow is using some little fun glittery fibers that I love and glitter glue to keep it sparkling. The image is from Flat Friends - Reindeer kisses

WOYWW + Winners

Happy WoYWW and here's my space this week working on a DT creations and I've got an envelope all set to mail off to Miss Julia for the big WOYWW crop So I still have 3 ATC's To trade and if I make some more I'll be happy to swap more it's fun so in total I've made 18 of them which just was one big colouring fest I'll share them on my WOYWW #6 post and just share my fave 2 with you here when I announce the winner...s From last week with the ATC image I used 
Here is my space and I've labeled it all up for you :)

Now I don't know if this will work but the marker that is standing up I have the tip I always use facing down hoping the ink will make it's way into it seeing it's slightly  not as strong as it use to be unless I use the other side it's working perfectly.
 Here are my two fave and none of the ATC's look alike I just to play with colours. When I was making them and I loved colouring up the zombie girls it's just fun there is no mistake when you create creepy images a mistake is just an added bit of detail/depth./EWW you did that lol.
 Limited Runs Two Faced Girl
Zombie and Normal
and here are my Winners
I pulled 3 names out and just need your email
and I'll send you these two Digi
Pat Taviss
Kristina Majuri

Have a wonderful day

Beach Baby

A Day at the beach and here is a stamp I won from Holley she's a Sweet Pea Stamp from Elizabeth Bell she's just a cutie. She's so cute and I wanted to make it feel like a day at the beach. Where it's still to cold to be. But Soon :)
I stamped this image on the back of one of my scrap papers and it has a shiney effect on it that worked out in my favor seeing it gave her a look like she's been in the sun a little to long and is starting to burn.

Challenges Hiding in my Craft room - Super Scraps Saturday *WON*
Sweet Stampin - Childrens Card

DL.Art - Use the Colour Orange

Happy WOYWW well here's my Whole space I love that it's a cozy little corner that I share with our computer there is a black chest with all that I'm trying to sell and holds all my finished cards so they stay dust free. 

A Closer look the two purses I  Made using the same fabric just the reverse side for each of them 
they don't hold that much but they are perfect for going out for a night and you don't want to carry a lot with you. Underneath them is some ATC's I've been colouring for WOYWW #6 and I'm making two different types you can see the image below I'm using for them. I don't want to wreak the surprize just yet so they are flipped over at the moment I'm half way done. All of them are coloured differently, I can't seem to create the same one twice it seems just have to create a back for them all and add a little something extra extra to them before they are finished.
Here's what I've used for my ATC seeing it's WOYWW 6 I thought why not make it a sweet/evil combo seeing some of us love those quirky dark images out there or take the sweet and just zombied
 them all up :P

OPPS almost forgot the winner from last week and is number 4 

Congrats and I'll send you your GC off to you to enjoy 
Happy WOYWW 
and I'll pop around to as many people as I can
Plus I'll give away these two digi above to one lucky person
just because I can :) 
I know a lot of people ask but I'm in a rut and would love some ideas on what you'd like to see me make for a new digi and if I make the one you suggest I'll send it to you as a bonus !!
