WOYWW 428: Milestone!

Hello fellow deskers and welcome; to know more and stalk check out other people's desks visit The Stamping Ground and our hostess Julia.  My second blogiversary was yesterday (see HERE) and I am running a competition to win one of the tags that you see on my desk.  You just have to comment on the anniversary post expressing an interest and I will announce a lucky winner chosen at random on my birthday next Tuesday.

As you will see by the shot of the other side of the desk, I have my crafty friend back to keep me company.  She has been making up for her absence by visiting me twice already in the last week and will be joining me again on Friday!  She has been working on some parchment flowers and getting to grips with the art of white work, although she coloured her own parchment using Pixie Powders.

Second Blogiversary Competition

Today I celebrate the second anniversary of my blog.  It has been a steep learning curve, but I have enjoyed every minute of it.  I have made so many crafty friends, most of whom I've never met in person, through the online groups that I've joined via my crafting and have grown to over 200 followers.  Welcome and thank you to you all.  For this special occasion I have decided to run a competition.  The picture shows many of the tags that I have created over the last two years; they have all been shared on my blog during this time.  There have been others that were given to people that I admire such as Barbara Gray and Sheena Douglass and fellow deskers on WOYWW for the 8th anniversary.  I don't know how many people will be interested in winning one of the tags but if you would like to choose one to be sent to you, just comment on this blog post, expressing your interest and I will announce a winner picked at random on my own birthday this time next week.
Thank you again to everyone who has joined me at any time on my journey, especially Eva who often keeps me company in the shed and Barbara Gray whose own daily blog got me started in the first place.

Ink Spray Tag Trees

This is the first of two milestone blog posts; today's post means that the total for 2017 equals the total number of posts in 2016 and 2015 added together.  As tomorrow is the second anniversary of my first blog post, I have certainly shared and created more this year!  Having worked on art journal pages for four days in a row, I went back to working on a smaller surface; a #8 manilla tag.  This was for the August challenge on Tag It Tuesday: use your spray inks.

Mission Inspiration: July 2017

I am still busy catching up with the monthly missions from Mission Inspiration.  This page was created in response to the July prompts (my 4th page in 4 days), so I have nearly caught up.  Once again, I happened to drop upon the perfect image in a Sunday supplement magazine which fitted the colour scheme and one of the word prompts.  As usual, there were 8 steps, 3 suggested colours and 5 prompt words.

Mission Inspiration June 2017

I am way, way behind with the Mission Inspiration prompts, although I have kept up to date with the mini missions.  I decided it was time I caught up a little, so here is the page created with the prompts for June 2017.
