WOYWW 680: Still So Busy

 The end of the school year is in sight but things are not easing up yet.  We are in the middle of assessments and Friday is sports' day so equally busy.  I seem to have just as many projects on the go at home too.

I am getting plenty of prep. for my #dailychallenge2022 done in advance and have nearly finished gessoing all the pages of my July/August journal.  I also posted off eight samples on Monday ready for shows on Friday this week.  Expecting more secret stuff any time ready for the first Sunday in July as well. 

I have been going for longer runs of pages with a similar theme and am currently working my way through butterfly and dragonfly stickers.  Don't forget to visit Julia at Stamping Ground to find out more about WOYWW and the reason why my desk is always shown on a Wednesday.  Hoping for a short meeting after school tonight after the marathon twilight session last week.  Stay safe and Happy WOYWW.


  1. I bet you can't wait for the end of term! so tantalisingly close... I really must book some time off work to enjoy summer. Great daily pages, as always. Happy WOYWW, stay safe. Helen #1

  2. Lovely pages Sarah, but "ugh" to the assessments. Just enjoy Sports Day, I always managed to have a job to do so I wa saved crowd control, it was so good to be out on the playing fields cheering my house on.

  3. Thanks for your visit . . . I was so late linking up it's a wonder you found me!!!
    Why, oh why, are school sports days always on one of the hottest days of the year!!!
    Don't forget to take your brolly with you.

  4. Good luck with all the samples on the shows! I wondered what on earth you were doing with the journal but I get it now, if you’re gessoing pages you need to ensure that they don’t get stuck together! Takes me a while….

  5. I love your pages Sarah, they are so beautiful, I can never resist vintage, and you have some fabulous images there. I like your page preparation - I really should get more organised like that.
    Hope you have a great week,

  7. Hi Sarah, I was wondering why you gesso your pages if you are covering them with a background piece? I have yet to use the books I have that are similar. Do they react badly to glue? Always willing to learn 🙂. Great pages this week. Happy WOYWW. Angela #11

  8. Beautiful journal pages as ever, Sarah. I hope this end of the year rush goes well.
    Take care and happy WOYWW

  11. Seems like you are very busy Sarah, hope you find enough me-time to play with butterflies and dragonflies (love them!) Have a great week, love from the Netherlands! Marit #3

  12. School work and meetings are really eating into your time at this point of the year aren’t they, you are a very dedicated teacher. Meanwhile, love the gessoing shot, am thinking the blue paper will make a great masterboard eventually!

  13. So love the "grumpy" on the man page but have to say my hubby seems to be less so since retiring - horrah!
    Thanks for the visit BJ#21

  14. Now I'm retired and no littles in the family I find I am completely adrift in the year without a term timetable to stick to!! As a librarian the holidays were always our busiest times. It'ss son be here (and sadly the Autumn Term will arrive before you know it!!) Great pages, thosee dragonfly stickers are cute. Happy WOYWW, love n hugs, Cindyxx #17
