WOYWW + CANDY !!!!

Happy Wed Everyone

Well the front door saga continues on for me last week I was saying how I was hoping to see how the blue would look with the black around the edges that was until I found out I used the WRONG !!! wrong Primer I used inside paint then painted over with exterior paint lets just say the door had to be heat gunned again OMG!! RIGHT !!! and then re-sanded then painted all over again well the DH took the heat gun to the blue and removed it all let's just say I read the top of the can, I didn't realize that there where two of the same colour and opps plus he got what he wanted NO more Blue
The door had to be brought back to it's basic wood (Stripped all paint off) and the trim around it and it NO LONGER looks like the same door now it's like something you see in a magazine for sure I think I'll post this on Houzz afterwords just to see how people like it (and Inflate his ego even more LOL). Well we went out of our comfort Zone with the DOOR Colour and it so works still needs a few finishing touches like handles and the knocker but it's looking sweet ... I AM SO LOVIN IT !!!

So alright on to my desk for the week ... stained glass supplies have been put away for now and on to crafting and creating so here's my space YEP look away if you don't wanna see Christmas lol

WOYWW

If you thought my desk was clean last week this week it's all been shoved off of it so I can cut some glass on top of it for some stained glass windows I'm working on to go in as sidelight for our front door which I finished taking all the paint off of sanding priming and painting it a nice blue only to have the DH think it needs to be a different colour seeing it blends in to much and you don't notice it's blue. UGG!!! I kind of agree but want to wait to see once we paint the black trim around it and see how that looks then lol.
Life has been hectic for me that I'm hardly any computer time
I did manage a few new drawings this week that I hope to find the time to turn into digital stamps

So here's my NAKED DESK!!!
Where everything has been SHOVED OFF TOO!!!
1st Sidelight for our front door not done yet but will be soon

So I'll try to pop in as many peeps blogs as I can

for our 6th anniversary. I think this is just wonderful I love how she made her bottle top look 
So here is my space this week still not much going on it's so here's my whole space 
for you to take a peek at 

Sewing table on the right (empty seeing the cat likes to sit on it or walk over to sit on what ever I'm doing my stamps are in two of the binders along with some stickers and odds n ends in another 
1 of the binders is my stainglass drawings that I make up when I'm working on a window
Ribbons and Inks in the clear boxes envelopes in the brown box 
and the other boxes that are stacked hold embossing powders,glues and 8 by 11 sheets and one with stuff I rarely use or plan to eventually use the long board is a cut off from my painting will turn that into a long sign one day when I'm up for it 
and YES there is still "C" crap on my desk lol

Happy WOYWW and I'll try my best to visit as many as I can

Where does the time go is it that time again to show you my little space well I'd like to say I've been super creative but alas I haven't done much at all but I know there is lots to do in my mind lol I did start another christmas card seeing I'm only up to 25 and that is soooo not enough it seems for me so I've got to at least make another 50ish to cover all that I will need 
 Little close up still on not using christmas papers for my cards but I love using black at christmas it's just so striking against all the other colours out there. So that little pile on the right of papers is all my 6 by 6 christmas I own at the moment about 40 sheets I guess and this is me laying out the card and about to make it into a a 5-7 cause I want more pink in it 
Happy WOYWW and you can find the link in my side bar 

I'll visit as many peeps as I can but I'm sure it will be later for some with all we have going on at the moment

Altered Frame

This week at Incy Wincy we are working with Wow Embossing Powder and Polka Doodles our challenge is to frame it and I choose to just focus on a FRAME :) 

I choose to show off some Wow embossing powder on this Frame for our challenge and painted it a yellow let it dry then used some clear ink and embossed it with WOW White Pearl Super Fine
Which gives it a really sweet shine and Pearl effect I'm sure my sister is going to see this and want it for one of her scrap book album covers (I'm pretty sure she will text me when she see's it lol)


Challenges - Incy Wincy - FRAME IT!!

It's that time again so here is what you all came to see my not so tidy space (at least to me) So I've labeled everything up for you all to see what's what and the painting is done and hanging in it's spot. Looks nice too. Last weekend I stripped all the paint off our front door and then sanded it lightly and added in some primer and then have to paint it a blue/teal colour taken alot longer then I thought it would so I didn't craft much this week seeing I was outside most of it and we've been having a heat way so everything take so long to dry 
So that's it for my space this week I'll pop around to as many as I can

WOYWW

Happy WOYWW well here is my desk this week it's hidden behind the HUGE painting (3 by 6 ft) that we wanted behind the sofa The DH requested something Abstract that you can stare at and see things in it and to match up with the space well this is what I came up with. it has 3 main colours in it. Which I like working with few colours it seems I didn't go for any other then what I had out.
I'm actually really happy with how this turned out and it has a bunch of layers over it now all I have to do is seal it up and hang it on the wall.

Update on the Sun room it's mostly finished has a touch of painting to do around some edges then we get to do the fun stuff PUT STUFF IN IT :) 
The Ceiling is suppose to look this way need to have a little rustic popping in to show age
With a touch of Fancy Plaster Crown molding and then the floors sanded down and sealed up and we now have some sweet wainscotting around the bottom.
So that's what we've been up to and it's been keeping us busy for sure and it's finally nice again here no more super hot days and it's 25 out with a wonderful breeze that I just love. Not to hot not to cold just RIGHT !!! 

HUGS Nikki
