WOYWW #231 - It's November already?!

Wow, I can't believe it's already November and Christmas is around the corner. Sheesh. 

And it's Wednesday too (and just barely, a few hours to spare). Which means it's that time of week to share my crafty work space with fellow crafters. Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see what the fuss is about and even join in...lots of desks to take a peek at.

Here's mine this week:

It's Wednesday evening so the pic is dark. This is my desk from last week. I was working on some techniques for Thanksgiving with my distress inks and a coffee filter. You can see some Inky Antics stamps too in the top right corner. Will be working on some cards tomorrow. 

I was missing last week...busy around the house. Spent last Wednesday staining my deck. Here's part of it...

I had power washed the screened in porch area, replaced most of the screens, cleaned and brightened the deck and lastly, stained it last week. Not bad for a first time staining. :-) 

Looking through pictures I came across this one...

this was back in September. I was in front of my house as the moon was rising. This isn't photo was a HUGE moon. Pretty cool huh? 


  1. Wowwww awesome moon, but that deck staining for a first timer, it brilliant, mine needs doing, I offer free room and food, but then again I could come over there sit on your deck and get drunk with you. LOL Have a fun creative week.

    Happy WOYWW

  2. Ha! Towards the end of the day my back was stiff. And for about 2-3 days after I woke up all stiff and sore in the morning. Not much good left here. But the drinking...come on over. :-)

  3. I live in Western NC so we are almost neighbors! Your desk looks like a color wheel!

  4. Your deck looks so fabulous!! I would spend so much time out there!! And the picture of the moon is awesome!! It looks like you are working on something fabulous with the distress inks!! Have a great day :)

  5. Great colors on that coffee filter. I wondered if you were trying to recreate that gorgeous yellow moon. :-)

    You reminded me my deck so badly needs to be stained, and painted... and repaired. Maybe next spring.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and for the kind comments.

    Happy Woyww,

    I cannot believe Christmas is coming up so soon! I was shopping (for a Thanksgiving table cloth) last night and they were already playing Christmas music in the mall!
