WOYWW 146 : verb

gawping at pictures

It's a highly technical term :0

OK, enough of making fun of Julia...but she asked me to keep it brief...a girl has to have some form of retaliation doesn't she? Your gonna back me up on this ....right? errrr....right? Well, if my link gets removed from the post over at Stamping Ground, then I'll know she didn't enjoy my sense of humor...hee hee

Well, this is my desk. Ok, can't keep it that simple...lol...You can see my Big Shot doing double duty as a weight, it's holding down my AB book. I just love this class by Elizabeth, Altered Book Lover: go do it, it's sooooooooooo much fun to get your fingers so gluey they stick together, gesso on your face, ink every where and let's not even discuss the glitter and beads...:)

Here is a sneak picture of what we are working on in lesson #4, Glue and Gesso. One part is making tags too, so here is a look at my tag:
Well I am off to see what everyone is up to today...was I brief enough? :p

Hi dear Sandee,

I wrote my post before linking up - but mine is on the short side today so I think I'm o.k......

Don't you love when our gadgets can do double duty! Make the most of it, I say.

Your tag looks wonderful!

Happy WOYWW
Hugs,

Never thought I would see the word 'gawping' on a blog fro mthe other side of the Atlantic - it's a very, very English word and one of my favourites.
Thanks for being so kind about my AB and in the spirit of cross-Atlantic co-operation may I say I love yours as well LOL.
Seriously, you are way ahead of me, have only just begun to think about lesson 4, but that tag looks stunning, all those little shells and beads and to top it all a beautiful little seahorse.

I shouldn't worry, I wrote mine at nearly 1 o'clock in the morning when I was half asleep, no where near a brief post. I always have too much I want to share with every one. Lots of fab-ness on your desk again. Thanks for sharing for this WOYWW, I'm nosing my way through the list! Take care Zo xx 22

Pat said...

I like how this is coming together. Looking forward to the finished tags/books. Waving back at you from Naples, FL

Darnell J Knauss said...

Yes, indeed, Sandee, I can see that we have very similar senses of humor. People gotta love us, right?! Great post!

Bellaidea said...

You have nice stuff BUT i`M SO IMPRESED with your big photo with horses, yours?

Lunch Lady Jan said...

You were a model of brevity - my post is long and rambling but it's the only one I do during the week. Maybe I'll have to have a short first section then if people want to read on, they can!!
Pretty blue tag btw!
Hugs, LLJ ~68 xx

dix said...

What a cool peek at your desk but even cooler peek at your blue "ocean" themed tag. Thanks for sharing. dix---

butlersabroad said...

Hhm, I couldn't be brief if you tied my hands together and put tape over my mouth! Lovely book, really enjoying how they're all coming along.

Shoshi said...

Crafty Chris - need more boxes? Hop over to Shoshi's blog and take your pick! Lol!!

Sandee, lovely desk, nice to see a dual-use tool!! I adore that tag... I really like anything with a seaside theme. I'd love to know how you are using glue and gesso...

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm definitely thinking of starting a self-help group for cardboard box hoarders like us. "Hello. My name is Shoshi. I hoard cardboard boxes." Sad, or what?

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #14

May said...

Fab desk, lots going on, love your tag I knew that big shot would come in handy one day!!!, Have a super week, Hugs May x x x No9

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Will you love me less if I admit that I've never gessoed? I have glued my fingers together. And my husband did superglue a pair of scissors shut once. I took them to work since people were always making off with other people's desk supplies. Can you image how fun to discover them stuck shut?! And brief... pfft! Next week I'm sticking a pair of panties on my desk and saying here's my briefs!!!!

fairy thoughts said...

Yes very brief, but lets talk about glitter and beads LOL
I think WOYWW has been hi jacked by AB makers (inc. me). yours is looking good and well ahead. Maybe because you are being brief

Barb King said...

It sure looks like you are having fun with that altered book class! Enjoy, Barb

Becky said...

I love to see your Big Shot doing double duty! Haha! Always nice to see more uses for our craft supplies :) Is that a regular doily on your tag?

DottyA Cards & Things said...

Can't wait to see your book next week to see how your doing...Great looking tag too!!
Thanks for stopping by!

fairyrocks said...

Beautiful tag and right to the point!! I am a reader of posts, so I don't mind the long with the odd photo thrown in LOL.
I can always tell when someone just looks at the pictures. Kinda reminds me of my 7 year old Grandaughter who memorizes a book then 'reads' it to me LOL
Keep smiling and creating and thanks so much for stopping by.

Cheers,

Suzanne said...

Love your tag especially the colours you've chosen.

Fuchsia said...

Wow thats looks fantastic how do you do it ????

Dam ! I wish I had thought of using my cuttlebug last week when I wanted a heavy weight but hey thanks its in the memory box now hopefully I will remember next time :0)
Thanks for passing

Redanne said...

That was an extremely brief post! Love the extra use for your BigShot and your AB looks wonderful.

Laura said...

Lovely tag!

Linda said...

I use some of my tools to weigh things down as needed too. Your tag is so pretty. Thanks for the peek! Linda #121

Di said...

Love your tag - keep on showing the progress :) Di xx

Cardarian said...

Your desk is full of interesting things (thank God I was able to make the photo bigger) and your sneak peek AB making from lesson 4 looks lovely! And here is a big hi all the way from Slovenia to you!
Hugs,

sandysewin said...

"Gawp," I wonder if that's where JK got "Grawp" in the Harry Potter books? It kinda makes sense. I suspect many of her plays on words went right over the heads of us Americans.

Anyhow, great desk today. I LOVE the colors of your seahorse. It really makes me think of summer.

Happy Creating and Happy Woyww,

Sandy #148

Beachstudio said...

Love Gawping at your pictures!!!!!

Clare with paint in her hair said...

Love your tag!

MaggieC said...

i will use anything that comes to hand as a weight to hold things together, so a Bigshot is a very good idea. Elizabeth's class seems to be popping up on so many blogs and it is fascinating to see what lovely work you are all producing. Thank you for your visit and your kind comments on our new stamp. Have a good week. xx Maggie #5

Sherry Edwards said...

Short but sweet (your post that is!) Elizabeth's class is great - I'm also doing it, albeit very slowly!

Hello!

It looks like you have lots of supplies and projects on your workdesk - and you do have fun with all that you do! Waving back at you from 80 degree WI - this is so weird! Wishing you some sunshine today!

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

Sam said...

Well they say you learn something new every day, I had never thought of using my BS as a weight! I have two huge law books which I rescued from work for my weights. They weigh a tonne and were very nearly going to be my AB!! I haven't got much into mine as I have been working for a craft fair on Sunday but after that I will be playing catch up!!
Waving from South Wales, UK!!

scrappymo! said...

That big shot sure came in handy!

Thanks for the kind comments about my DH. He is getting a wee bit stronger each day. Even managed to walk a couple of blocks today! YAY.
I have been banished to the dungeon(scrapbook romm) till the hockey game is over. Apparently, I talk too much!!!
Hopefully he doesn't have another heart attack from the excitement.

lisa said...

Your first line briefness made me laugh, we should all do that one week!!!
It's really hard to be brief sometimes isn't it but you've done a great job and it's lovely and interesting too.
Your tag is looking gorgeous, I love seahorses, they are so cute.
I always look out for your waves, they are my one of my Wednesday highlights so I'm sending you big Yorkshire ones back.
Hugs Lisax #123

Julia Dunnit said...

Gawping is a viable verb! Isn't it?!! You make me laugh! Your desk looks marvellous - you are WAY ahead on your book..are you trying to get to the top of the class? Looks that way to me!! And the Big Shot as a weight - genius!

Jacqui said...

THanks for visiting my desk - your tag is lovely

Lori said...

Sandee - I laughed out loud reading your post. Short & sweet! Thanks for hopping over to my desk this week and commenting on my tangles/doodles. Lori #115

Mari K. said...
