WOYWW 189 and Paper Crafts Auction

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

It's that time of week when we hop around the blogosphere and have a peek at other creative desks.  This is, of course, courtesy of the fabulous Julia at Stamping Ground.  I've been bad about playing along.  But those of you who have peeked at my space before, will immediately recognize this is NOT my normal work area or creative play toys.  You're used to seeing me do paper crafty goodness!

This is, in fact, my dining room table (hence the leftover red table cloth from Christmas that may just continue to make an appearance for who knows how long) covered with jewelry making goodies.

See, during the weekend when my hubby is home, he sometimes takes over my craft room/office using the computer.  During that time, I generally go elsewhere, either the living room or dining with my laptop.  Well, this weekend past I had an urge to drag out all the jewelry paraphernalia and create something!  So off to the dining room I went!

Here's a peek at some of what I've been creating since then.

I created eight different colored version of these.

Six different color versions of this one!

Four different color versions of these!

These are my FAVORITE!

Those those peacock colored beads!

I do need to migrate all that stuff back into my craft room, but for right now, I'm enjoying having stuff all over the house!!!

Speaking of paper crafts (subtle, huh).....
This Saturday evening my friend "Scrapoholic" and I are hosting a paper crafts auction on Tophatter.  You've heard me mention that online auction site before.  But this time you might really want to join us!  At 7pm CST, we are having a paper crafts auction for all sorts of paper crafty to feed your habit!  Signing up for Tophatter is super easy, and we always create a really fun atmosphere in our community auctions.  Here is the direct link for our auction and I really hope you join us.  You even have plenty of time to enter stuff to sell if you want.  Perfect chance to destash your hoard of paper stuff!!!  Feel free to email me if you have any questions!

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!


  1. Interesting arrangement between DH and yourself. We used to do the same cause he would be gone months at a time but now we have our own rooms and the living room/diningroom/kitchen get neglected! Thanks for sharing and have a great week! Vickie #43

  2. I am a writer and I work in the kitchen. Not a great place for quiet contemplation but I learn to tune out.

    When I was sewing some stuffed Tadeo Turtles to sell with my book I took over the dining room. I then bought a little table and all my sewing stuff in now in my art room/guest bedroom.

    Thanks for sharing,

  3. Yes, like Vicki, we have our own rooms (now we are both retired) and sometimes only meet up at meal times! Such pretty ear rings. Happy Wednesday. :o)

  4. Love the turquoise earrings - my DH used to make jewellery but go fed up so gave it all away but I did manage to keep a small amount....... will get round to it one day ...

  5. Jewelry making always looks such fun but I can not get the hang of it - kudos to you!! Hubby and I both have our own rooms/offices now - we'd never agree on musical taste if we were in the same room so it works quite wel!! TFS Cindy #74

  6. Absolutely love the earrings!!

    Sorry I am 2 days late getting to your blog. I have been battling a nasty flu bug.
