Crafting my way through life - one adventure at a time.

Hi! I'm LisaDV. Thanks for stopping by. This is my life, crazy and chaotic most of the time, and I wouldn't change a thing.

WOYWW - 360

We're off this morning to my dd's doctors appointment. So this post is actually being typed on Tuesday evening.  If you're curious about the workdesks and want to see others, visit the Stamping Ground.  If I didn't get round to you in the morning when I post this, I will get round to you on Thursday.

I'm building page kits for our May Challenge over at 2 Peas Refugee; where you set your own goals and work on what interests you. We are there to encourage one another.  Also, anyone can post a prompt or challenge that we can use as inspiration, but you don't have to use those either.  We like to make things user friendly.  I love things like this SOO much. Like Calvinball at Get It Scrapped, where you are just encouraged to make your own things. I'm pulling more photos to print when I sit at my desk and have the journaling typed up on a word document for the photos with the photo dates on it. Then when I print, I can cut the journaling apart and place it with the photos. I'll know the photo dates as well. For those photos that are already printed, I'm putting pictures with papers and tossing them in bag and adding any memorabilia.

This is my desk. It has been for both Monday and Tuesday.

Here's what's finished so far.

Above is Christmas papers and embellishments with 2 different years: 2012 (as I already did a couple of layouts for that year) and 2011 photos printed out. I did 2014 in digital format. I think other years will all be digital format as well.

Above is various other topics.  Some are more lengthy subjects that will get pocket pages. So I'd like I've pulled those pocket pages too, and I'll probably use my fuse tool as well.


I'm awaiting an order of paper for 2 different sets of photos.  I know I'm on a spending freeze, and I would have made due......but......I actually found a Stampendous Hummingbird stamp and die set on this blog.  Stampendous was out and so I was going to wait til it was in stock. BUT it's a HUMMINGBIRD!  Did you see how cute that is! I'm totally going to copy that card too!  When I checked the retailers, A Cherry On Top was one. It's one of my 3 preferred providers. So I had to order. Since I was ordering, I might as well get paper that is more befitting some of the photos. Halloween papers (I don't typically buy collections) and a winter themed set.

That's it for me. Hoping for a sunny and warm day to go play after the doctor visit.


  1. Goodness me. What a lot is going on for you Lisa. Hope it all gets straight and done...
    Take care. God bless.

  2. 2PeasRefuge sounds like a fun place to be. I like prompts but I'm not so good at working within a timetable too much. Hope your new stash arrives soon.

    You mentioned you were in TC. Are there any good independent crafty shops in the area? Hubby and I are spending a night up there next month for my birthday so just wondering.

    Have a great week

  4. I can see some really great pages in the making. You sound like you are very organised. Getting the photos printed and making bags with all the bits you need.
    Happy WOYWW,
    Have a good week too,

  5. Well good for you for making process on printing photos. I have a ton of old prints I need to reorganize. I swore I was going to do that before Calvinball but it didn't happen. Have a scrappy week! Susanne #38

  6. You are so organized with your photos/ journaling. I hope to get there once the studio is in working order. I'm not after perfection.. just put away LOL. I'm checking out 2Peas - again. Another place I hope to play once the studio is finished. Stampin Up has a beautiful multi-layer hummingbird set in their spring catty (ends May 31). I can't remember if it will be in the new catty or not.

    Speaking of hummingbirds. I had 2 scouts in last night so had to hang a feeder before I went to bed. Here in the Ozarks, they tend to hit the feeders very early in the morning. Creative Blessings! Kelly #52

  7. Looks like you have a great system in place for a lot of fun scrapping coming up!

  8. You've got quite a project going on! And the hummingbird is pretty cool! Thanks for the visit and I hope you have a great weekend!
