WOYWW 200 And A Bit More

Another week flew by.  I'm fighting the spring allergy season, so the puppies and I spent much quality time sleeping in the recliner...but I did manage to finish one project. 
My granddaughter turned 7 and she had her first horse riding lesson.  I've been working on a small album for her.  She will be in charge of putting photos into it.  I'm hoping to turn her into a little scrapper.  She's well on her way and is very creative.  I can't wait to have a play day or two with her.
Doesn't my desk look organized?  You should have seen it before I tidied up.  I forgot to take a photo,  So this is a bit staged (quite a bit actually)   Julia, I'm not a neat freak, as a matter a fact, I could have used your photo as my desk looked very much the same.  I loved what you said about the bin.... I'm with you, I don't save my small unused bits....but I do put them in a box for my granddaughter.  I know I could never find the right color for another project.  Like Julia, many of us share our "tidy" work about getting brave and joining us.  Julia kindly hosts WOYWW so we can bravely show what we've been up too.
Not a card any of us choose to make, but one that we all too often need.  I've had need of two in the past week.  Love to Christine and to Joe's families.  Both will be greatly missed. 

I rarely share my husbands play day.....yesterday he had the girls over for a play that got your attention didn't it!  It's so nice to hear the giggles, the whining, the quiet and then to see the smiles and feel the happiness one feels when a job is well done.  Congrats to the girls!  Richard... you bring out the best in all of them (and me too). 
That's it for today.  Happy Wednesday!
Hugs to all,
Mary AKA:  Glitter Grammy


  1. What a nice idea making an album for your granddaughter! Mine is 6 and we craft every time I can get her over here which is never enough!! They are just so precious aren't they! So you staged your desk too...hmmm...well I was guilty of that my first week, last week, I just took the picture of my messy desk, and this week, well you will have to check it out...Cathryn 128 LOL Hope your granddaughter visits soon!

  5. Oh I love the little album. What a great thing to share with your granddaughter. Thanks so much for sharing.

  6. Love the album and your tidy desk! I also love that you have an artist husband, that would come in very useful for unique cards!

  8. What is it with little girls and horse? I was exactly the same for many, many years. Let's hope she loves her beautiful book and wants to fill it up with lovely photos. Sorry you've had to make sympathy cards, that's never an easy task. Love your hubby teaching the ladies! Are those his paintings on the wall? They're beautiful.

  9. Yes, like Brenda, I wonder what is it with little girls and horses? My daughter went through a horse/pony obsession until we discovered that she was mega-allergic to them - such a shame - and now my granddaughter has now been bitten by the same bug :) I'm sure your granddaughter will have plenty of photos to fill that gorgeous album. I've had a few sympathy cards to make recently and, like you say, it's not something we like to do. However, your card is beautiful - I like the soft shades used. But how lovely to have such a talented husband and how nice that he brings out the best in both the ladies and yourself :) Have a wonderful weekend, Elizabeth x #95

  10. Lots of lovely goodies this week, the album is fab I am sure she will treasure it. but best of all .... an organised man on a play date LOL
