What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) #388 And "The Morning After Trump Becomes President of the USA?!
It's Wednesday... but not the usual Happy Wednesday for me because it is the morning after the US Elections and Donald Trump just became President of the USA. I live in Canada and only 15 minutes from the US border...
I was not feeling very secure or very happy when I awoke this morning, but as I was sitting at my desk trying to decide what to write for today's WOYWW post I experienced the most amazing sunrise...
A magnificent scene of the mist rising from the river valley as the sun rose from behind the mountains on the Canada/USA border. A sign that all will be OK? That's how I am choosing to see it!
So Happy "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday" Everybody! (If you are new to this weekly event over at the Stamping Grounds, go HERE to find out more about this wonderful weekly blog hop). So now On To MY Desk!
As you can see I am in full swing with my Christmas card and Christmas tag making. Christmas card making is a labour of love for me and I truly enjoy making cards to send to family, to friends I have hugged and to friends that I have only cyber hugged.
I am a little late this year as I usually start making my cards in August while camping, but this year the new house and huge, new garden really put a kink into my schedule.
I make cards until I don't feel like making cards any more; it may be 10 or it may be 100, every year is different. I like to make card families - three to six cards that are similar - and then I move on to a new idea. I have a LOT of Christmas card ideas.
The only problem with this method of making and sending cards is that I don't remember who was sent which card... grin, but everyone seems to like what they get. (Note: I am still working on those shaker cards... they seem like a LOT of work!) Now for those of you that popped in last week and giggled over my enthusiastic excitement about my playdate and wished me well, I thought I would share.
Yes, we had fun and YES! it absolutely exceeded my expectations as we played and messed about all day long with inky paper towels and paint and ink and stamps to create 8x10 mixed media canvases.
This is my canvas, still a work in progress but isn't it a fantastic technique? I love that you never know where it's going to end up.
And finally I am sharing the beginnings of an idea birthed as I was applying some excess paint into my Art Journal, left over from creating Christmas card backgrounds. What do you think about this background and this stamp? Come back next week to see how it turns out!
Happy WOYWW #388 from Lynne Mizera in Canada with autumn leaves in my hair.
