WOYWW 166: the new studio sign edition

I took a two week hiatus from this insanely popular Wednesday blog hop, hosted by the Queen of England . . . . . Stamping . . . . . WOYWW, our own Julia at Stamping Ground.


In case you missed it, I was given $30.00 US worth of buttons in exchange for a tutorial on how to use them in mixed media art. I created 18 signs that welcome you to my main floor craft space and show what I'm doing at any given time of the day, along with one storage container. Now that the tutorial is finished, my table is bare.



However, I would never leave you wondering where the rocking horses are, so this week they are on my door. Of course, you might also be able to see one of two new ones in the window, too.

Have a super week and look for me out and about shopping 'til I drop. After all, Wednesday is the day I shop for groceries.

My desk looks like yours- I spent today cleaning and organizing my head- I mean my studio. It seems whenever I get my desk all clean my head gets clearer...

Gosh - the Marie Celeste of desks ;) Enjoy your shopping :0)

Neesie said...

I thought I'd get a head start on my desk hopping even with Mr Linky going AWOL. Maybe he's decided to have a hiatus too?
I love the open door look this week and I'm glad to see you back...look forward to seeing what you get up too ;D

Hi Elizabeth! We missed you! I like your sign. What is inside the huge really used bottle on your desk, and I can't find the rocking horses on your window!!! :^) Patsy from

Those are really great signs Elizabeth, but you made how many?? Lol! Can't believe you have no space in that huuuuge basement room of yours!! Enjoy your Wednesday shopping trip!

Hugs

Hi Elizabeth,

The two tier stand was only $3.00 so I splurged. Our thrift store charges lots for clothes but I usually just head to the back where the other stuff it. Those guys sell things cheap!

Your desk looks like it's waiting for you. What did you do with all the buttons? I'll go release my WOYWW post even though we can't link up....

Hugs,
Kay

Helen said...

Annie said...

BJ said...

I guess I won't see you shopping :( unless I have a jolly good pair of binoculars - LOL. Love the sign and do you mean the real window as I was looking on the balck card to see if you'd added a window - LOL BJ#19

Julia Dunnit said...

Well I'm off shopping till I drop too, but I don't have a sign. Yet. Except perhaps it would give Mr D the vapours...I should prolly just say I'm going out! Blogger played me up this morning as you could tell....I was just copying your site address to link you when your name popped up - sorry if you've been up all night!

Claire said...

such cool signs!! and what a busy bee you've been :)
i think shopping - esp. for groceries - should be an olympic event - such a hassle, and so exhausting!!
but have a happy WOYWW :)

Wow, they really got value for buttons with all you produced there. Well done you, great result! Hope you find a treat whilst shopping to reward yourself, you deserve it!

I love your door sign and I saw your post with all those buttons, excellent use. Hope your naughty email is fixed soon.

see you there! said...

There is something inviting about an empty desk or workspace. All ready for your next great adventure. Nice to see the signs in use - you did a great tutorial on the buttons.

Eliza said...

Shopping not my thing so I don't think I will see you out and about. Mind you I am in Australia so might be a bit far. Now that desk is looking really neglected, you must do something on it.

Shoshi said...

Wow you have been busy. My desk is full of stuff but nothing creative, I'm afraid - still sorting stuff, and enjoying the Olympics in between! Thanks for your visit.

Happy WOYWW,

Danielle said...

My desk is completely empty this week, too. Great to see the rocking horses are doing okay.

butterfly said...

How nice to have all that space on your desk... room to get busy again when the urge strikes! Love your hanging bags of stuff, and oh my word, what a beautiful cat!!

Terrie Purkey said...

still loving that button hanging! So clever of you - thanks for the nice comments on my beachy shots....that is something that we all forget - so many states are land locked and don't have access to ocean beaches, though a lake will do as well. There must be lakes around Wichita, right? If not, maybe you just need to set up your sprinkler and let it sprinkle all around you or, better yet, fill a big tub and dangle your feet in to cool off. Your side bar says it's 102 now! Those are Las Vegas temperatures (we lived there for 5 years and loved it). Keep cool.....

Sue from Oregon said...

Definitely sneaking in through the door to take a peeky! Hope all is well your way! Sue Kment 108

Neet said...

Didn't see your rocking horses but then I was mesmerised by those two blue bags hanging on the wall. They are lovely. Gorgeous colours and with the names of the two of you on them.
Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet xx #36

Di said...

Love those bags!!

Belated Happy WOYWW, at least we finished the envelopes in super fast time! Di xx #3

Nice peek into your room ... I can just imagine those buttons getting up to trouble around the corner of that door.

Happy belated WOYWW I have been MIA for about 3 weeks, so I missed most of what has been happening aroun d the world. So nice to catch up with everybody again.

Ahhh...what could be nicer than beautiful work you've finished (especially my fave, mixed-media) and a nice clean work table!! Crafty hugs! --Sandy Leigh at #103

I love creating with free stuff...love the signs. I love my fur babies and grandbabies! I have a friend that detests any type of pet, furred, feathered, finned etc. Daphne made a very rude remark about a single cat hair one day and I pointed out that her hair was on the table next to her plate and uninvited her to the coffee klatch. I feel sorry for cause she is such a sad and miserable being. Enough of that! Stay cool my friend. Vickie #130

Rushed off my feet this week I haven't been able to get round many desks at all apart from reply to my own comments. Things took a turn for the better and I got some work that's actually gonna pay me properly not like working for my mom who well doesn't pay me fair wages for what I do, she cant afford to so its no big deal really I get free room and board! Anyhow I am waffling! Love your changeable hanging sign its fabulous and love the tutorial on putting holes and windows and doors in books too!

Much Love

Amy E said...

Love the signs!! That blue is just gorgeous!

As you can tell, I'm running a little late myself this week! Oops!

Love the button hanging and the sweet little rocking horses. Just read your latest post on rusting - the results are fab. I'm not a medic (just a one-time medical secretary) and I could be way off beam here but as haemoglobin contains iron, perhaps the rust reacts with that.

I sent you a private email some time ago and as there has been no reply I guess you didn't receive it. Perhaps you could contact me by email, at ellie.worthington@sky.com as I'd like to make contact.

Hope you have an enjoyable weekend. Elizabeth x #18

Morti said...

I'm really late getting round to everyone this week! Thanks for stopping by my blog though. Love the button greeting, and the cute little rocking-horse buttons on it too...

Daniella said...

I am really REALLY late! I love your blog! You are very creative!!!
Hope you had a great Wednesday!!
