It's A This and That Day Today For WOYWW #377 (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday)

Hello and Good Morning Blogland Peeps... Today, for the 377th What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday  over at the Stamping Ground I am sharing a bit of "This and That" which is going on in my life right now... Firstly, here are some blurry pics of my workspaces:
Blurry because it is still dark now at 5:00 am in the morning here in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, Canada...
Messy, because I have been cranking out work non-stop to meet my design team commitments as well as getting those five canvases ready for my first Student/Teacher Art Show (I am a student.  The poster for the event arrived this week...
And YES! That is my canvas in the centre of the poster... that was a Happy Day!  And  More Happy... this wonderful little packet arrived from Dorlene Durham - check out her blog Crafts In The Comand Center), she sent me these hollyhock seeds from her garden in California.  They arrived in this beautiful envelope she created... Thank YOU Dorlene... I will be planting them in our garden this spring!
And the other Happy Mail I want to share is this wonderful card that arrived from a lovely new team member on my Susan Weckesser Creative Team; Ms. Debra Davison (check out her blog: Meticulosity)  I love that she created this card from paint sample chips from the hardware store!
Thank you Debra and Dorlene... your kindness really made a difference in my world this month as I try and focus on the those "little things" that are really "Big Things" as I try and make sense out of an unexpected loss of someone who was a both friend and a huge influence in both my personal and art life.   The empty space she has left in my world is very large, and I am trying to come to terms with a World with out her in it.  Here is a wonderful little video created by a local TV station which showcases Christy's wonderful personality; she had a big smile, an infectious laugh, a huge heart and an even bigger talent - it was too soon!
So with a sad and heavy heart I am signing off and trying to keep my perspective by focusing on the Simple things today.

  1. So sad for the loss of your friend... She seems to have been one who really did live her life in color and made everyone's life more colorful too just by being around her... It's in moments of loss like these that we really do learn what is important- realizing that it IS the simple things that are actually some of the best things..

  5. You've been amazingly busy Lynne - so inspiring for me to get my bum into gear. You're sure making the most of your beautiful art space (which is saying a lot as it is so huge)! Lovely that they featured your work in the brochure and as a centerpiece no less! I didn't know Christy but I was shocked when I saw your post about her on Facebook. What a lovely, happy lady and a heartfelt tribute in her memory. Just puts things into perspective, doesn't it? xx

  10. I love the photos of your art-space, and especially the 'hangers' in front of that window. So sorry for the loss of your friend - I experienced a lot of illnesses and death over the past months and it changes the way you live your days, isn't it. I send you a big hug from over the ocean - thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. Marit #23

  12. HI Lynne, apologies for the late visit, I'm still catching up! So sorry for the loss of your dear friend, that's going to be very hard to come to terms with but I hope you find that your creative hobbies will help, it always helps me through difficult times. I love you workshop, you must feel so inspired when you go in. You have a LOT to do, and doing a show must be quite a challenge, but hugely rewarding - enjoy! Annie C #5

  13. Happy Very Belated WOYWW. I am so sorry for the far too soon loss of your friend. She looked like a lady who we could all laugh and learn with. I love your workspace - so much to play with. Every time I go in a home store, I look at the paint shade cards - must get some next time I am in there. Ali x #12
