Welcome back everyone.  Have you all gotten back into the swing of things?  Finished off your Chrimbo choccies and the last swig of sherry?  No?!  Well done, as they say choccies and sherry are for life not just for christmas (or is that a dog....never sure on that one!!).

So this week on my desk (I still have a tidy room....well tidy for me!) is a selection of journals and gesso.  I have my A4 365 Journal (for the Kate Crane challenge see the link in my side bar), my A5 journal for wipe ups etc and my small travel journal....if I am getting paints out I may as well prep several pages at one time (ooh, get me.....tidy and organised!...Place your bets, how long will this last?!).

My Man Bites Dog cards this week spelt out "New Cop Lost Convict DNA"....I was quite pleased with the cards this week!

If you spotted my tutorial in my earlier post and you know HOW to get wretched youtube to allow me to upload a short video in less than 5 hrs....please let me know!

So, if you'd fancy a legal snoop around desks across the globe then visit the queen, Julia, here for all the deets and links (including the date for the next WOYWW crop!!!!  Not that some of us dropped hints for another one!!)

Happy crafting



  1. Happy woyww. This week is the first time i've felt like i'm getting back into my normal routine after christmas . we've nearly finished all the choc's. Enjoy the rest of your week. jill #10

  2. Good luck with th video uploading, I admire you for having the guts to do something like that, I couldn't!! Glad you're happy about the WOYWW date, we thought we'd get it sorted early. Though Di is probably never going to speak to us ever again as its the one weekend she can't do..... :(

  8. Hee hee funny cards as always! You'll be glad to hear I've ordered an art journal and plan on playing inky style! As to video upload haven't a clue am afraid! Take care Zo xx 43

  9. A fellow gesso lover. Woohoo.

    Good luck with youtube. I decided to go with ustream. Hubby was able to figure it out for my first video production.

    I am a friend of Sandee. I hope you get a chance to check out my blog.

  13. Hi Kyla
    This is my first time of WOYWW and my first visit to your blog, I hope you don't mind me looking around while I am here.

  14. What is the scoop with your cards? I like the offbeat things they spell out. How exciting that you are keeping things tidy. Never fear, we won't hold you to it every week (that would be boring) but I have noticed that once tidy it tends to stay that way.... until it falls into complete and utter chaos.

  15. I;m envious of your tidiness, mine didn't last very long, ha! Happy WOYWW!

  16. sounds like alot of prepping in the works. smart way to do it.

  17. Hmmm, Video upload.... not sure about that one cos the one or two vids I've uploaded have been ok and fairly quick. You could try asking ShazSilverWolf for her IT hubby's help, or ask Doone (Donna) for assistance. Or failing that, go to Vimeo...

    I have a lovely box of chocs here which are calling to me but which I daren't open to eat yet - I'm now officially on a diet to get into the wedding dress - only got 56lbs to lose! Most likely I'll only lose about 42 of that, but we can try...... wish me luck!

    Happy New Year - hope it's a good one for you. Thanks for stopping by!

  18. Hope we will see you on You Tube, that would be great! Thanks for visiting me, they were Fresco Finish paints and their crackle. Love 'em, as they work on lots of surfaces without priming,

  19. I can't be of any help with the videos, sorry! Took me FOREVER to upload my vacation ones, so I understand!!! Keep up the tidy desk!

  20. Hi Kyla, have no idea how the YouTube thing works - just enjoy watching the demos. Hopefully, someone with more technical knowhow than I have has come to the rescue by now. Enjoyed the word phrase again this week - nonsense but fun :)) Thanks for sharing - have a good weekend. Elizabeth x #69

  21. One of my resolutions for this year is to use my paints more!!! Good idea to get a few pages done at the same time!!
    Happy (late) WOYWW
