Good Wednesday all my crafty friends!!! It Wednesday again and over at Julia's Stamping Ground, we are sharing the love....crafty love that is! LOL Come on over and join us and share what's happening on your work desk today!
So as I kind of hinted, I have several projects on my desk, or close by, hee hee, and December is like....right around the corner!! Ugghhh! I'm on a mad furry because as I stated last week, I like to give the gift of creativity to friends and loved ones. I don't do Christmas cards like so many of you talented card makers do, but I will bang out a project, which I'm thinking takes longer! LOL The problem with it all, is I get the hair-brained ideas when I'm backed in a corner and have to pull out my cape and superpowers to get it done in time!!! I think that's called procrastination.....hmmmmmm? And besides, I don't look good in the whole skin-tight superpower suit!! Too many lumps! LOL
Last week, I also shared my ATC's that I did get in the mail on time (believe it or not) that I did for the swap over on Instagram at Amy's Art Alchemy and I can't wait to receive my swap cards from a new art friend from somewhere in this world. So exciting!! Anywho, I met a new crafty friend in the group whose art I commented on and then she asked did I want to trade with her! Of course.... who's going to say no to that! LOL So the last photo I took of my desk was on Sunday where I actually have the beginnings of my new ATC's for the swap with her and the beginnings of Project Christmas.

You will remember one of my recent posts "Project Mom" whereby my talented sister does amazing woodwork with that giant machine! She graciously agreed to cut me out some wood pieces for my Project Christmas, which are to the left of the ATC's. I got her to cut out three different shapes and I will be making Christmas ornaments out of them. I have done some base painting thus far, but I had to do a little here and a little there because I had to get those Instagram Swaps in the Mail and to Texas by the 15th. And then I wanted to get my new friends ATC's in the mail by this Monday. So, exhalation, LOL, now I can get back on the ornaments. I will share as I get them done for sure.

Well that's it for my crafts this week, but I wanted to share with you what my precious daughter brought to me on Saturday. I was crafting, and she knows I get in the "zone" when I'm crafting, so she thought it would be a pretty good prank to call me out of my room to "help her do something," as my response would most likely be something like, *sigh to the max*, but I would drag myself away to help! And this is what I found:
Isn't she a peach????? She is just an amazing young lady, wise beyond her years, and ALWAYS thinks of others before herself! I have a lot to learn from that little cookie I tell you! But she wanted to bless me with this little bouquet and sing her favorite song that I sung to her when she was a little tyke...You are my sunshine, my only sunshine...! Isn't that the sweetest???? Turns out, SHE was MY little sunshine on Saturday!
"Then your light will break out like the dawn. Your recovery will speedily spring forth. Your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard." Isaiah 58:8
Let God be your Joy today! Let Him be your sunshine, the lamp to your feet, and light to your path, the water for your well, and your Rear Guard of protection, assurance, comfort and strength!
Blessings to you!
