Wings Workshop on the Go projects

Finally! I'm back and going to start uploading some artwork for you from my past playdays.

First is the Wings Workshop on the Go month. The Wings WOTG kit is G1016 and costs just $29.95. For that, you get a B-sized stamp set, a Level 2 Paper Pack, a Mini-Medley Accents Black Collection, a new GREAT Spray Pen, and a colored Workshop Guide that provides dimensions and detailed, colored instructions and diagrams for putting your pages and layouts together.

Here are the cards we made--or were supposed to make. There wasn't time so the ladies took their packs home and made them for "homework." We also used Vineyard Berry Reinker, Pearl Paint (for the Spray Pen), Exclusive Inks Stamp Pads in Black, Blush, and Vineyard Berry.

Next for that day was the two page layouts that were also made from the kit.
I changed things up a bit, by adding the button brads on the Sweet Leaf strip on the left page. That's my 2nd Mom holding Lucy Belle.Evelyn is Susan's mom and Susan is up in the top righ corner of this page with me, sipping lattes. I really miss her, she's only a gazillion miles away. Anyway, Lucy always has to go sit on Grandma's lap whenever she comes over. Below the ladies are hard at work on their Playday projects. The right page shows my friend Sandy. She had just bought the Accu-Cut machine from a LSS that went out of business, to leave in my room because that's the only place where she scraps. she's looking at all the dies she got with it. On the top left page, to the right of Grandma and Lucy, you see Lucy on the bottom part of the cart the Accu-Cut's dies sit on. She loves to find little nooks to catch a nap in.

The "Joy" on the right page is spelled out with our beautiful new Bohemian Alphabet. It is E-sized and $34.95. Up close, the letters are solid block style, but there are flowers etched in the negative on the lower half of the letters.

This month, we didn't do a calendar page, but did make the 6x6 mini accordian albums that I have posted below. It was a busy, fun day for all.

One month down, two to go but I'm off to bed tonight.

Where's Mary???

I'm MIA!!!

A few weeks ago, Sam, who was on crutches at the time, got tangled in my laptop cord and down it went. The screen broke. To say I'm anxiously awaiting word on whether or not it is going to be repaired or replaced under my extended warranty is an understatement. I so miss my computer. I'm very thankful to Karine for loaning me one of her old laptops. I can at least communicate. I did take some pictures, but couldn't figure out how to get them from the camera to the computer so i won't be able to post any new artwork until my computer is back. So sorry. I do have some good ones ready to post.

Last weekend I spent the weekend at Candice's house, Karine also joined us. I got 4 pages done, 2 are just great. I haven't done much else this week but shuffle papers and add things up here at the house. Ray and I did pass out the campaign 7 Avon books. If you like Anew products, there are some great sales going on in this campaign. I'm hooked on the stuff after seeing some of the brown sun spots slowly disappearing from my super sensitive skin and it's not tearing my skin up. I love it!

My exciting house news is while I was away, Ray almost got the floors finished in our bedroom--no more carpet! Sam's room is the only room left and we will be carpet free again. Off and on I have talked about how nice it would be to have a laundry chute. Our bedrooms are on the top level, living rooms on ground level, and garage with laundry are on lowest level. My laundry chute will soon be reality; I was told today that he has "the hard work done." I'm so excited.

With bad knees, I don't do stairs well. We have a chair lift inside, but not going down to the garage. Normally I just open the door to that area and pitch clothes down. Then I won't go down those stairs for fear of tripping. Now they will go straight from my closet into a laundry basket right by the washer/dryer. He doesn't know it next, but I've already started talkng about a dumb waiter to get clean clothes back upstairs without waiting for him to bring them up. ;-)
