WOYWW #86

It's WOYWW and for those of you that don't know what that means, it's Julia Dunnit from Stamping Ground's What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!


Well this week this isn't really MY workdesk, but this is where I had a "play date" at my friend's home :) 


I brought my baked artichoke dip that we munched on while we played.  That's it back there in the white dish to the right of the distress tools . . .
And of COURSE I had to take my new Vagabond so I could show my friend how it works. We cut grungepaper, grungeboard, plastic, file folders and even some of her husband's old jeans!  LOL
We stamped and cut and using one of my favorite products by Modern Masters, we even rusted up some stuff.
We distressed with inks and DE-stressed with red wine!
Using some German Glittler Glass, I glittered up a chandelier I made out of grungeboard.  I plan to add some rhinestones and some sort of chain-type thingie at the top so it can be hung . . .  
My friend and I always have a great time playing together.  Plus, she makes the best salad in town!

Thanks for stopping by and have an art-filled remainder of the week!

What an awesome play date. You hooked me with the rust. I am thrilled to read such words as artichoke dip and salad. Sounds like my kind of play date. Glad the vagabond got a good work out, too.

Sorry I missed you last week. My time was simply not my own. At least I'm trying to make it up this week. Happy WOYWW from #10.

Lovely stuff you made and that artichoke thing looks so yummy! You are so lucky to be able to go over to a friend and craft - there is no one near me so I could have a crafty evening! Must be lots of fun!

playdates are the best! Looks like fun! I am LOVING my Vagabond; you know the one I didn't need, but caved in and bought? It is fabulous. I will never get rid of my BigShot, but this baby is so awesome!

Doone said...

Oh I do so love play dates - nothing better than to swap tools and stash - my second favorite that I have taken to is Skype Crafting - it is such fun to work away on a project whilst chatting to a craft mate - it often sparks Ideas i would never have had if crafting alonesome...I love your glass chandelier I bet it sparkles beautifully.

Nancy Lynn said...

What a fun play date table! Sorry I couldn't join you for candles, wine, glitter and grunge...I had a previous engagement. lol

ANewYear said...

I really wish I could see a demo of the Vagabond. I will have to wait until one of our local shops gets one in.
Looks like you had a fabulous time!! I love when I can get together with one of my for an evening. Sadly I'm the only one that crafts so it's usually just girl talk, food and wine. :)
BTW my mouth is watering just thinking about your baked artichoke dip. Yummy!!!!
