WOYWW What’s on your Workdesk Wednesday, actually seems to be the beginning of my creative week. I am one of many who join in on the blog hop each week to peek into other lands and creative minds. Making new pals and getting lots of inspiration.

Hamsa Mandala

I am finishing up a very fun Mandala Magic workshop with Julie Gibbons. The Hamsa circle frames the basis of my own hand. I did the rough sketch and now I’m ready for the fun part. As part of her work she provides a mandala personality assessment, and no surprize the colours I am generally attracted to appear. So for my large SMASH book, I decorated the front with Sharpies in appropriate hues.

With all my fav colours

Next up will be the December challenge “Ink blotting” with the lovely Jennibellie. Promise to show you the results next week. Fun, fun, fun.

My favorite thing this week

OMG the Caran d’Ache Neocolor II Watersoluble wax pastels, (and of course liquid pearls) gives me the freedom of spirit to really play. Not as messy as somethings, (especially when the Newton is not sleeping) I feel like that wonderful grade two art girl.  Hurrah.



I’m taking part in my second  WOYWW (what’s on you workdesk Wednesday) desk hop today. In case you’re wondering what it’s all about, just follow this link to the Stamping Ground. This is what my desk looked like this morning.


A glimmer of an idea on being thankful for, yes, coffee. I had this page in my SMASH book and I knew I had to do something special with my Gelly Roll Moonlight (luminous best on dark paper) pens. I was also playing with chip board letters, a new stencil, Distress paints, Candy Rock glitter and Silk glaze. (ohhh ahhhh) And I had cut out the coffee mug just last week knowing it was speaking to me.

When finished I added a real cinnamon stick just for fun. I am thankful for many things in my life, and today I was thinking about drinking coffee as an activity that goes with the people, pets and pursuits I am thankful for. I don’t know if you can see the glitter in the modeling paste to provide real dimension for the whipped cream.

Oh yes, the other item on my desk this morning was Socrates. He may slow me down, but then I was enjoying a cup of coffee at the time.
