WOYWW - Week 242

WOYWW? - What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday #242.

This is what my work desk looked like today:

I'm working on several things at of them being these bunny girls.  I'm taking an online class from Teresa McFayden, which has been a lot of fun!

I don't know why I drew her neck so long, but my 7 year old daughter hates it!  She can be a little dramatic, but she says she can't even look at it because it "freaks her out"!

Here's a stamp that I'm making for the envelopes of the postcard swap.  It was meant to be a mail bird, but my hubby thinks it looks like a school bird.

Here's #10 - the last postcard for the swap!  It just needs some words in the oval.....something about wings maybe.

Head on over to Julia Dunnit's blog to check out other creative work spaces!

WOYWW? What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday #241

WOYWW?  What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday - week #241.  Stamping Ground is hosting the weekly Wednesday blog hop, peeking into people's work desks.  Head on over there for a list of participating bloggers.

Here is my messy desk!  I've been working on postcards for a swap I joined.  This one is the 8th one.....2 more to go!

See those Portfolio Oil Pastels there?  I *LOVE* them!......but I bought this set in the Summer, and for some reason I left them on the window sill and they melted!  Thankfully I'm still able to use them though.

So today I painted this girl.  Don't even ask about her eyebrows....or her wide face! lol  It looks like she's just come out of dental surgery!

Tomorrow it's my hubby's birthday, so I'll be baking his favourite cake in the world - Carrot Cake.  Our favourite recipe is from a Mennonite Cookbook: "Food That Really Schmecks".  Then I'll head back into the studio to work on post card #9.

First 7 Postcards for the International Postcard Swap

I've been having a ton of fun in my studio, making postcards for the postcard swap over at Musings On Realities.  Although I've had my new studio space since November, I didn't really move in until this month.  It's SO nice to be able to start a project and leave it out.....and to have all your supplies in one place.....and working with no interruptions.

Some of these will be getting some text added to them, but 7 out of 10 are (mostly) finished!

The end of 2013 was a busy one for me, and I didn't have much time to do anything except pour all of my energy into the Winter craft fairs.  That's over now (whew!) and I'm looking forward to 2014 - joining more art swaps, setting up my new studio and playing around with paint and collage.

I just joined this swap, hosted by Shannon Ganshorn (of Musings on Realities).  Anyone can join (here), and the deadline is January 12th.  You make 10 handmade postcards in a mixed-media style, send them out to 10 different people, and you get 10 postcards back from 10 different artists.  FUN!!
