Organize your Stuff Week 16 (round 5): Paint, Mists & WOYWW 143


Happy Leap Day!
Thirty Days has September, April, June, and November.
All the rest have thirty-one…except February.
It has twenty-eight.
However, once every year in four, February has one more!

What a special What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday! Well, to celebrate this quadrennial holiday of sorts, come leap, hop, jump, or click with us over at the always Fabulous Julia’s Stamping Ground, where there are over a hundred crafty folk sharing their spaces and their work! Here is mine today…


And here are my paints… They travel a lot, having most recently traveled to Cub Scouts so that the boys could paint their carvings for their Den Totem poles, so the POW keeps them in a reusable grocery bag for ease of use and transport…even if it frustrates OCD Me that they are constantly getting messy. (Find a happy place, find a happy place...LOL!)

Our mists also are grab and go-able! This makes it easier for Creative Me to play. The big thing to remember with mists is a misting area. Inner Hoarder, of course, always has a spare shoe box…and thanks to Oldest Child’s ginormous feet, they are plenty big enough for most projects!

Here is our other project…

…our design team entry for Tuesday Trio’s Sketch 108: 5 colors. And let me tell you, there is nothing more mojo blocking then a color count for Creative Me. However, we made it through. It is simple, but it is done.

*Warning: skip to the end to avoid the family stuff*

As for our picture from the front this week, Fabulous Spouse has not done much of anything picture worthy, as it has been a little stressful in country. However, here is a picture of the Office Dodge Ball Team from last week.  On the plus side, we did get a huge boquet of yellow flowers this week!  There is a reason he is Fabulous Spouse!

As a result of increased stress in the area, we had to get our St. Patrick’s Day box out early. Let us tell you, Creative Me was totally excited with her first use of gel food coloring in the white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. They came out perfectly green and yummy.

Our big activity this week was going to see the Harlem Globetrotters, an awesome trick shot basketball team. Since Illusive Middle Child and Girl Friday are playing basketball for the first time, they were in total awe of what these great athletes could do!

Oldest Child spent the week assembling his first new bed since 2004. OCD Me really wanted to do it herself, but one week later, he had an Ikea bed that he had assembled more than half by himself.

Illusive Middle Child had pocket knife duty at Cub Scouts. Here is his carving for the Den totem pole…it is supposed to be a grey wolf (just squint and nod…its ok). Of course, the boy was the only war casualty, needing a band-aide for his thumb after somehow getting a small cut.

Girl Friday had the privilege of attending Girl Scout Songfest, celebrating Girl Scout’s 100th Anniversary. The vest was on loan from the POW, as Girl Friday wanted to wear something “vintage” to the celebration. *Sigh* We are vintage now…The POW guesses that means we are worth more than hand me downs! LOL! Girl Friday also got interviewed for the Girl Scout time capsule.

Anyways, have a great day! Leap around! Enjoy! Thanks for visiting!

What a sweet little froggy. Definitely sharing your toys with the potential for them to get messy is very hard on the OCD. Deep calming breaths, deep calming breaths! Great workspace and post as always. Happy Leap Day to you!

Well, I'm impressed that you let just anyone use the paints...not sure I could! O,g hadn't even thought of St Patricks Day, hope the green (gulp) cookies get there safe and sound and the stresses reduce.

Misty's Mum said...

Wow! you are one busy lady. I loved the frog card & found your "waening" sentence quite amusing.
