WOYWW 273--Pretty Much Doing Everything But What I Should Be Doing

It's What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday--time to snoop at craft tables around the planet!
If you're checking up on me, I'm a little sidetracked. I really should be working on my tags and art quilt which I have in my creative queue. Oh but no. I found a lovely picture of mommy, and had to pause and scrapbook a whole page about her. The worktable is not too terribly messy yet, because I was just getting things out. I had the most beautiful, wonderful, creative mommy in the whole world. She's the reason I love to craft and create things. She's been gone for nine months now and every once in a while I have to talk about her because it's so hard to not be able to pick up the phone and hear her sweet loveable voice, or drive out to spend the afternoon with her and her three little chihuahuas. Thank you lovely deskers for patiently reading my occasional ramblings about June...she was the prettiest girl in town.
Found this paper in my Vintage stack...Mom used to say "a little birdie told me" all the time!
Scrapbooking her pictures is incredibly therapeutic.
My other scraps, tags, and art journaling is waiting for me! Have a happy, creative day. And if your mom is still here on the planet, hug her.  

P.S. I'm getting so much better with the ATG gun! I think I like it now.

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch


  1. Hi Sandy Leigh - what a lovely way to think about your Mum. You are right she's gorgeous. Love your about you description of your creative life! Happy WOYWW from Helen 52

  2. hi Sandy. What is sweet post about your mother. What a beautiful photo of your mother. I know exactly what you mean about missing picking up the phone and talking to her anytime.

    thank you for visiting me already!
    Happy WOYWW,
    Hugs. Kay

  3. Oh I know what you really hit me the other day that all I wanted to do was talk to my mum. And I couldn't. Even now it makes me teary, I miss her so much. So you're doing exactly the right thing - scrapbooking that photo of your mum is THE most important thing, everything else can wait........
    She was a real looker, your mum - she looks like a film star - very Maureen O'Hara-ish. That's a lovely LO you're building around her :-)
    So, when you come over to the UK and come to stay, I'll take you to Winchester, people have been worshipping there since the 7th century. It is so old! And we'll go to Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey) for a stroll and afternoon tea!!
    Hugs, LLJ 20 xx

  4. Your mum really was a beautiful woman, and I totally understand your need to talk about her - even several years down the line I still have moments when I yearn to talk to my mum, so as Jan says 'everything else can wait' - this is far more important, and that is a beautiful LO you are doing there. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and I hope you have a good week,
    Diana #27

  5. Love what you are doing here - I have been meaning to do some pages about both my Mum and Dad - you are so right - do it now! It's some years since Dad then Mum died and I miss my phonecalls and visits to the other side of the country to get my hugs from my mum especially! Thankyou for visiting, Chris 36

  6. Hello Sandy - how lovely your mum was. I'm fortunate I have my mum still ( she's 85 now) I just wished she lived a bit closer. It's a 3 hour drive to see her and that's if the traffic is kind. Sadly dad died 8 years ago - still missed so much. Anne x #28

  7. Hi Sandy my mum is 86 now but so far gets about , though slowly, it's so good to be able to spend time with her now. I have started a family journal and am lucky enough to have quite a few photos.
    Hope you have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 34

  8. Too late for WOYWW I know! My computer is rubbish this week so I have got a bit behind with myself. Glad to see you have been busy with lovely crafty activity. x Jo
