WOYWW #202 - Giggle

Hi and welcome to my desk this week for the infamous WOYWW hosted by Julia.

I've done some scrapping and have reached December 2012 at last.

My husband wasn't too happy with the title on his cycling page though!



The blue and orange ATC is made from left over pieces from my son's birthday page which happens to be on the Winter Solstice which I used for my "special day" for the Craft Barn's Alpha Challenge.

I made a Ballet ATC based on this "Word" themed SWAP card  I'd posted earlier in the week. The ballerina die is from the Craft Barn the other week, my feminine indulgence in a male oriented household.




I have done a page in my 12 Months Journal and a couple of cards for upcoming anniversaries.

Finally I received the big "G" as part of a monogram SWAP, and here's the "C" I made.

hahaha hubbies are so particular about what we call them on our blogs. Mine was disgusted when I called him Mr Crafty-he does not have one crafty bone in his body.

What a lovely display of crafty creations, you really have been busy and now wish I wasn't stuck in a heap of 'stuff' I'm sure if I just cover it all with PVA glue it'll make something, but nothing like you have there! Have a great crafty week!

Lycra Man did make me smile even though, like you, I am feeling down due to a pending visit to the dentist for a tooth extraction tomorrow. :o( You have been making some gorgeous projects - I love the monogramme 'C' and the scrapping, too. Congrats on making the #1 spot. Happy Wednesday. :o)

Hi BJ,
Congrats on being number one!!! I thought the "Giggle" in your post title was because you are Number One. Oh, but your G looks great!

Also, nice way to use the scraps from your son's page - the ATC looks very cool.

Happy WOYWW

You have been a very busy, crafty lady. I especially love the ballerina atc.

Saxo Stamper said...

Love them all particularly Lycra Man.

Good luck with the dentistry - I had to have some work done and before hand I practised relaxation techniques which really helped, slow deep breaths, focusing on other things - it really worked.

Lots of beautiful creations. Wonder why our husband doesn't like the title 'Lycra man'? Valerie

Darnell J Knauss said...

Haha, Lycraman, love it!! BJ, you can teach me a thing or two about getting a lot of WOW packed into a small WOYWW package! This was so fun, so much to see, and such inspiring works of art!! I have half this much content to show and I go on and on and on ... I shall try to learn from you!

Thank you for coming by to visit me earlier! Hope you have a wonderful week! Darnell #32

Queen Lightwell said...

Lycra Man, lol :) Love the ATC's and the monogram letter you made. All very awesome, as per your usual. :) Don't worry about returning a visit to me if you don't get around to it, I realize its rather late in this WOYWW to be making a first visit but I just *had* to see what you'd been up to and then I just *had* to leave a comment on Lycra Man, of course! Cheers, Deeyll :)
