WOYWW #198

Another Wednesday....another week to snoop around at everyone's work spaces and see what is (or isn't) going on...if you'd like to go check it out or snoop yourself head on over to Stamping Ground where Julia is the wonderful hostess. Everyone and anyone is welcome!! 

The weather here doesn't seem to want to cooperate. This past weekend was gorgeous. Low 70's. Monday some nasty storms rolled through the area with possible tornado's, hail damage (including at the airport where I work, airplanes were pelted with hail, co-worker's houses/cars were damaged by falling trees or hail), and this morning I woke up to an alert on my phone for freeze warning!! What the heck....!!

So here's my desk. I haven't worked on it since Sunday. I came home from a Stampin' Up club on Monday and set some things down...

My little black craft carrier with some items in it, the 3 cards we made which are just adorable, leftover supplies from all the Easter cards I made. My Bow-Easy bow maker. Love that thing, so easy to make bows now. Finished up my Tim Holtz March tag which is in the previous post...LOVE how it turned out, especially this Stampendous Vintage Embossing Tinsel I bought last sparkly and just love the look of it. 

Yesterday right before I left for work I saw a cardinal sitting just outside my backyard on a tree...

I zoomed allllll the way in from my deck!! He (or she) was singing with another cardinal. One would sing, than this one would respond back. :-) I did have a bird feeder in my yard under the tree. But, someone (my male dog) tore it down like a little stinker! He is such the hunter. 

Happy Wednesday!! 


  1. Oh wow, thanks for that photograph of the bird. I have never seen one and did not know they were so brightly coloured.
    Looks like you had a good time at your crafting meet on Monday - hope you show us those adorable cards.
    Hugs, Neet xx 2

  2. Super photo and glad you had a great time at your meet.
    Happy WOYWW and have a great week Heather#133

  3. Good morning, Gita -- thanks for the cardinal picture! We are so ready for spring here (upstate NY) and instead we get another stinking snowstorm. Not unusual, of course, just not appreciated! The cards look beautiful. Hope you get some more warm weather soon. Happy WOYWW from Laura #115

  4. This weather is crazy all over. I would love some 60's temps myself, but you can keep the hail. We did see a robin last week, but have had snow flurries for the last 3 days. ugh, come on Spring. Love the cardinal picture. Happy Wednesday! LisaDV #145

  5. fabulous photo of the cardinal.
    Happy Wednesday #142

  6. Our weather in England is not much better. We get one day of beautiful sunny Spring and the next day, we are right back to icy cold winter and the threat of snow. I love your little black organiser, such a useful piece of equipment. Thank you for your visit and your kind comments. Tried a piece of the Malt Bread again today and it is even better than when it was fresh yesterday. Have a great week. xx Maggie #32

  7. Loved your Tim Tag yesterday! That's a great picture of the cardinal - we don't have birds anything like that here. Thanks for showing us your workdesk - happy WOYWW! xxx Keren

  8. Sorry that Mother Nature has been so topsy-turvy nasty lately, Gita! I think that awesome cardinal made up for it, though ~ what a fantastic photo!! Love your desk and the takes from your fun workshop!!

    Have a wonderful week! Darnell #42

  11. I also have the Bow-Easy! Great little tool! And we also have red cardinals, along with Gambel Quail, roadrunners, doves.... Anyway I hope to get my desk as "neat" as yours... LOL! Still unpacking from the retreat. Thanks for visiting! Happy WOYWW!

  12. Well what a roller-coaster of weather ! 4 seasons in 4 days ! What an amazing bird - so vivid - the best I do are great tits & blue tits and nuthatches at my bird feeders here in Wales - the latter are truly messy eaters !! Oh an a woodpecker who come in late spring ! have a fun week ! Ali #22

  13. That is definetely a HE- So your coming up this way? yay!! Let's get together if you can, but if you can't get away from friends or family, then I do hope you stop by the Art MoB in Hendersonville. Let me know what your plans are! Thanks for visiting me today Gita, waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

    1. A male bird okay. :-) i haven't tried to look it up to see the difference. I'll let you know my plans as time gets closer.

  14. Gita what a wonderful bird to have on your backdoor step, I have never seen one in real life but he sure is a beauty. I got the die cut just recently for christmas cards even though they are not native to Australia.
    Thanks for sharing him, I so love animals of all types.

    Hugs Eliza
    Belated WOYWW greetings to you
