WOYWW 343 New Year - New Plan

Hello my friends and fellow crafters,
I have some exciting news. This is already starting out to be a great new year. We had so much fun in November doing Nanojoumo and #15minsnanojoumo Art Journaling challange together, My friends and I have cooked up some fun for 2016. If you stay tuned you will see the fun unfold. Shel of Paper Ocitillo  Studio, Lizzie from Lizzie's Workshop, and Sheri of Cards and More by Sheri have teamed up to do a year long monthly challenge. We fondly named it Pick A Stick and you will soon learn why. We have created a Facebook group for the Pick A Stick challenge. Because we had such a good time in November, we wanted to share our experiences this year with you and anyone who wants to do an art journal challenge. Please follow the Facebook group link above if you want to Join us and play along.

I also joined a group challenge with my friends from downunder. Colour Me Positive is a weekly challenge and I love the name. Another Challenge for me this year is from Jennibellie with a few classes thrown into the mix just to Keep me busy and learning.

Well enough about my news, You came to see my desk. You ask why??? well check out Julia Dunnit's Blog and see what is is all about. You can visit all kinds of crafty goodness and link up with crafty friends. So here is my sad desk.

Quite the shambles, right? On top are some lovely stamps my friends sent to me. On the left are cards I made using them. I had to try them out and I did need a few thank-yous.  Well Happy New Year my friends. I hope you are happy, healthy and crafting. God bless. Peg
