Organize your Stuff: Week 28 (round 4): WOYWW #122


For starters, let us bid a rainy hello to all the wonderful What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday. If you are looking for sunnier climates, it is only a click away at Julia’s Stamping Ground! In two clicks, different continent, hopefully more sunshine!


Today the POW had Creative Me frantically working on our Sketch #87 for Tuesday Trio, but did not quite get it in on time as it was a redo (translation to English error the first time… black and white card was original request, but colorful card with a black and white element was the real request). Just goes to show that we are all human. Here it is anyway, even if it did not make it to the site posting.


It has been franticly busy here for many reasons. The saddest of which was the unexpected death of one of Illusive Middle Child’s football coaches on the weekend of their rivalry game (we won 13-12) in a car accident.  The coaches made the rough decision to tell the boys after the game.  As Coach O was one of my son’s favorites, the POW has been listening to PA Me and letting a lot slide to help him deal.

Also, on a happier note, this week was Girl Friday’s birthday! It is hard to believe that she is growing up! Many presents and many, many cupcakes were made and consumed today!  Our house still smells of artificial strawberry from the 50 cupcakes that we made for the cheer squad! The hardest to find present… Black Beauty- the original movie (by request). The coolest present… an IOU for a trip to the American Girl store in Seattle this weekend to buy Girl Friday her first American Girl doll. (Whip Me, Beat Me and take away my charge card!...Space Camp).

We will be visiting desks and leaving a post on Card making supplies at the end of the week!

Bad news is so tough to deal out to kids, but I think they prefer to hear it straight then fudge the issue. I like the redo as well - could I do that with my diet please!!! And way to go for your girl - like the IOU idea even tbought I have no idea what an American Girl doll is!!!
Hugs, LLJ xx
