WOYWW? #228


I woke up and just double checked the news online. Yup, our glorious government is still shutdown. Wonderful. That means I am still going to work but won't receive a paycheck until all of this is over. :-/ But, I am grateful to still HAVE a job and EVENTUALLY I will be paid sooooo...enough of my sniveling. But that still doesn't make me very happy. 

So. It's Wednesday. The sharing of the craft space or desk or whatever you happen to use to craft on day. My has hardly been used over the last month or so. It's been almost a week for me.


Ok, so I broke open my Dylusions Art Journal book and created a page. For London. That's supposed to be me with an umbrella in rainy ol' London. Which it wasn't. Ha!! I had excellent weather. So, it's a little bit of a joke. All the stencils, stamps, sprays, etc all over that I haven't cleaned up yet. 


I feel like my pages are not nearly as gorgeous as others I see. I'm still playing around and such. Plus, I decided it's not done. I'm going to add some black doodles around the edges. We'll see. 

Happy WOYWW!!

  3. I forgot to add that I just had a breaking news alert from CNN that said apparently they have reached an agreement, so hopefully the shutdown is almost over. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

  7. I agree I think your journal page is wonderful and in the end as long as it makes you happy (art is great therapy) that is all that matters. Hope that your job issues and government get themselves sorted soon. Danie #54

  21. Thanks for your visit earlier, at least there's no housework while the B & K are being done!!!
    Love the journal page, and your photos - especially Westminster Bridge, my favourite bridge. I just love to stand on there and watch the people passing by and the traffic on the river ...... aahh!
    Thanks for the memory.

  23. Hi Gita, you really do have to sit back and have a good look at your work it is really brilliant and you should treat yourself a bit better, I love your page actually I love all the pages you make and they are trully an artist at work, not crappy by any means. I do hope things improve and you get paid soon, a bit crazy to say the least. Belated WOYWW greetings sorry I am returning so late, life has been hell these past few days.
