WOYWW #177--The Only Thing Spooky Here is the Mess!

I decided to take an afternoon and use up some old scrapbook papers--that's when I got carried away! What a mess I created! I worked on my altered book art journal...then I moved on to creating some blank tags for all my art journals...I made bookmarks...and then about the time I wanted to work on some cards, my aching back said, "No no Nanette...you're done. Back to your knitting!" I rallied, later on, and worked on my fairy wings--we are having a big family chili buffet for Halloween, taking the kids around the neighborhood, and answering our own door to dole out candy to our trick-or-treaters. I'm sure we'll be watching The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown over and over and just having a good time. 

Happy Halloween and WOYWW everyone! Visit worktables from around the world right here. Don't be afraid! We won't bite you--not all the work tables are as messy as mine!
I love making blank tags for art journaling from my scrap paper stash!
Sewing lots of patches on my fairy wings!
Maybe I'll finish this one and start on the new one next week!
Eat, Write, Dream, and Stitch--even when your back hurts!


  1. I need to do this too Sandy - thanks for the inspiration!

    Happy WOYWW from

    Create With Joy - #5

  2. Very nice tags here. I love your curtain draped across your desk for some reason.... #25

  3. The scarf is progressing nicely!! I've just bought some more wool and am making kids' hats that look like animals, really cute :)
    The tags are fab - I love the one where you've used the cut out heart to thread it on the ribbon...very clever and ever so effective.
    Hope you are keeping well over there :D

  6. What pretty tags you've made with your scraps. We seem to share the same taste in papers, I spot a lot that are familiar there.
    Enjoy Halloween and Happy WOYWW

  9. I'm sat reading my WOYWW blogs on my sick bed this week but have my mask on so you don't catch anything. I'm enjoying reading what everyone is up to this week [it's better than reading magazines :-) ]. I'm leaving a copied comment so you know I've called by because my hands are too weak and shaky to keep typing out my comments this week.
    Big hugs,

  10. Lovely brightness everywhere on your desk Sandy.

  14. Ah you're planning a perfect hallowe'en....now my DD has grown up, I'm missing it...hope she grows back into it! Looks like you have some good weather - well nice light to play in too! I never noticed before, isnt the shape of your desktop lovely.

  15. My daughter and her husband came over tonight and we had dinner and sat out front passing out candy and toys to the kids that came by. OMG! what some Mommas let their kids out of the house wearing now days. I bet we had 200 come by for a treat. Love the busy desk this week! Bright tags are awesome! Thanks for sharing and dropping by my blog! Have a great week! Vickie #37
