WOYWW #280!

Blessings, friends! 

 It's time for another fun trip around the globe on this Wednesday, 
always a fun break in the week :)  If you haven't heard of Julia and her WOYWW challenge, you can take a peek at the Stamping Ground!

I was excited to jump back into my crafting Cabana this weekend, 
even though it was just for a little while.  I looked at my desk and smiled at my sweet little "scrapbook bear", a Mother's Day gift from my children from Build-a-Bear workshop many years ago.  We named her Scrappy, and she is my muse when my creativity wanes :)
Also on my desk is a big bowl - not graced with Halloween candy - 
but the only bowl I had available when I was seperating some stamps
that are for sale as part of my daughter's Girl Scout project - stay tuned!
I just may have something you are looking for and
it's all for a great cause, all proceeds going to a Dog Rescue Ranch.
Finally, I'm happy get started on that extra huge pile of swap cards that are coming up due, birthday and thank you cards that need to get in the mail and future DT cards and hopefully play in the challenge for the wonderful new stamps I just won - super excited!!! :)
Whew ... Friday is only 2 days away!

 Well, friends - homework to be checked,
dishes to wash and put away, and lots of mommy-ness
before bedtime, so I'll wish you blessings and good night! :)

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

  18. That bear is darling. It's prolly better that the bowl is not filled with candy. At least it would be for me. :-)
