I'm back!! & WOYWW 188

Yeah, it's been a while since I blogged!  I had the cold/virus 'thing' that is going around and it completely flattened me.  Extra illnesses on top of M.E don't mix well.  I only got through December with prescheduled posts...  But I am feeling a little better and I am itching to Art and share.

On my desk today are a few thank you cards.  I just had a happy half hour playing with washi  :)


I think this one is my favourite.

I've also been working on a canvas but as it is a DT piece I can't show it until Thursday.

There really hasn't been much else going on herre - hopefully that will have changed by next week.  I intend to take up the Craft Barn's yearly challenge.  I have my dictionary ready!

Pop by Queen of Desks, Julia's for loads of desk hopping.


  1. Oh lovely cards, really must get me some Washi tapes. Happy WOYWW BJ#52

  2. Those washi tapes are fab - someone made me a fab Christmas card with them. I love your card too. x Jo #49
    ps don't forget to check out the bargains in the Jan sale over in our blog shop...

  3. Hi Laura, love the thank you cards. I have a quick question for you. In the top right hand corner of your desk pic today there are some cute boxes with buttons / brads? on the front. What are they? What's inside and where can I get me some :)

  4. LOVE LOVE LOVE washi tape!!! Great cards.

    I am new to WOYWW and friends with Sandee. Hope you have a chance to check out my blog and desk.

  5. Just love the washi experiments - what great cards! I've also had the flu bug, and still coughing away like a 90-a-day smoker (which I promise I'm not). Happy WOYWW!

  7. Hi Laura! Thanks for leaving a comment on my page - Your desk is amazing and I LOVE the cards! Happy WOYWW Laura #55 xxx

  8. Love the wash tape cards great idea. Inknow what you mean about the ninth stamp I think it may be some kind of telephone do you think?

  9. Cor, I love that card! So bright and zingy and its just made with tape. Amazing and gorgeous! I'm glad you're feeling better now, these viruses have been terrible.....
    Hugs, LLJ 38 xx

  10. Hi
    This is my first time at WOYWW and I hope you don't mind me looking around your blog while I am here.

  11. washi tape looks fab ! Darlene # 117

  12. Beautiful work you've done with the washi tape, Laura. I'm sorry to hear you've been so poorly. I know what it's like to get stuff on top of M.E. My hubby had that awful stomach virus but thankfully I escaped scot free!!

    Thanks for your lovely comment. Spoke guards are primarily to prevent your fingers and clothing getting tangled in the spokes of your wheelchair, but being a large flat area, they also serve a decorative purpose, and for us artists, and opportunity for self expression (or exhibitionism!!) - I did some more on my project today and so far they are working well and the papier mache is holding up well.

    Your "dream" may be prophetic - I've designed several new zentangle patterns recently and they have been submitted to the Tangle Patterns site, and once the owner has time, she will evaluate them and if they are OK, they will appear on her site! I have found one of my zentangle-inspired art drawings on Pinterest which is encouraging. My next big project will be to decorate the cover of my album, and it's an ongoing process, drawing up the patterns and instructions on the ATCs to go in the album. Lovely and relaxing and fulfilling to do when I'm confined to the recliner!

    Happy WOYWW, and I hope you are feeling better now.

  20. Glad to hear you are starting to feel better. The thank you cards are great. I think it is time I start playing with all that Washi tape I have accumulated.
    Happy very belated WOYWW!
