WOYWW 294 good intentions

 Happy Wednesday Peeps
Work desk peep show time again..... Want to see my desk? . . . .  be warned it's still covered in Christmas stuff.
Good intentions ...... but not much done really ..... and certainly nothing worth writing a blog post about. I think I will finish one more session and then pack it all away....... had enough of it all and really want to get on with other things. (Brusho paints and sewing). Its that time of year I hate most ..... waiting for spring..... it feels a long way off at the moment. No real snow here but it's cold and dark  and 'yukky'.

So what do we have today: well lots of snowflakes, washy tape, ribbon, brads, ink pads and general card making 'schtuff' as some of you say,
This year I am aiming to finish ALL my UFOs (unfinished objects) and will try and log my progress.

Last  week I finished my journal page

A canvas for my bedroom from ages ago . . . . love this

So far this week I have  finished  this knitted cape  for Erin..... she wore it straight away ..... praise indeed from her.....It's  so hard to please the under 4s....
Okay ..... you know the drill and if you don't pop over to Julia's at the  stamping-ground.   for all the details ..... I wonder if she is planning anything for week 200
You've seen mine so I guess I had better see yours too.... after work probably so please leave your Mr Linky number.

  1. A lovely cape being modelled by Erin. Great colours used for your journal page Janet. Happy woyww jill #18

  2. Great cape!! your journal pages look fab, love all those circles. I can;t be doing with Christmas makes after the event, so I'd be with you and pack it away for later in the year!! Helen 4

  3. You did a lot this week!!! The little cape is simply darling! I LOVE IT!!!! Kind of wish I could get away with wearing something like that, because I would totally wear it! Rather dreary over here, but we did get another dusting of snow so it isn't quite so drab outside. Just very cold! And like you, I am yearning for spring as well. So I made up a bunch of paper flowers!!!

    Happy Crafting!

  5. I love the journal pages, that's a really great background effect - and the canvas for your bedroom is beautiful. Well done for finishing your projects - I really need to take a leaf out of your book - in fact I have a bag of knitting wool and three patterns I want to make so perhaps I ought to aim to start some projects first!! Hope you have a great week,

  8. OMG! I am afraid to hunt up and uncover all my UFOs. I'll be watching your progress and full of envy at your dedication I'm sure. Love the cape. I am still on socks (and the one sweater) but might branch out one day.... :)
    Have a Happy WOYWW day!

  9. Finishing UFO's is a good intention indeed... I love your art journal spread, beautiful and happy colours! Happy woyww and a hug from Holland, Marit #51

  10. Oh I love your canvas and Erin's cape is adorable, but yes I do know what you mean. Little ones are brutally honest aren't they?! Hope you're well. Take care Zo xx 32

  11. Well. I'm impressed with the whole finish-the-ufos thing, and you're making fabulous progress--the pages are beautiful, and that canvas is fab, love the colors!

    And the cape, what a fun thing for that pretty little girly!

    #68 today with

  12. Hi Janet, still at the Crimbo stuff eh? Mad woman you. I'm totally with you on finishing off UFO's though, that is top of my to-do list this year. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #17 xx

  13. Definitely time to put the crimbo stuff away and move onto to more exiting stuff. I've loved playing with my Brushos. We have some of the real white stuff here today so spring does seem a long way away but it'll be here before we know it I'm sure.
    Love Erin's cape. Had to laugh as the under 4's being hard to please...does that change as they get older then??
    Have a good week.
    Hugs Lisax #31

  14. The page from last week turned out really cool! I love the cape your little one is wearing too. I have no knowledge of knitting or crochet so I am very impressed with it :) Can you make a big size one for me? Happy WOYWW! Shel#71

  15. Oh my! ALL your UFOs?! You must not have as many as me. Or be much more motivated than me. Definitely that last one. I still have some Christmas stuff piled along the edges of my desk and some front and center as well. It seems like it is always lurking in the wings. Love your planetary floral journal page! And your other UFOs that are now finished too. You rock it! Judy #76

  16. Wanted to stop by and take a quick peek at your desk. Love the cape. High praise indeed.

    AHH, washi tape. Just when I get interested in it, it seems to be fading from the scene. Happy WOYWW from #1.

  17. What a sweet photo. Love the cape. I have sent you an email re. the Tyvek, hope it arrives okay. Happy crafting, Angela x

  18. Hi Janet, It was with Simply Cards and Papercraft. issue 132( I got it last Sunday). Apparently, there is also a set of free matching stamps with Simply Homemade, Issue 51. I'm trying to track one of those down right now, lol. Hugs, Shaz xxx

  19. How sweet! Erin looks so cute in her cape. I need to follow your awesome example and jump in and get some projects finished...I can find 101 excuses not to! I hope you have a great week and thanks for visiting my blog earlier. Vickie #31

  20. I just came back for another peak at your planetary page, which I really, really like. I realized that your post title is "good intentions." Isn't that what the road to hell is paved with?

    Save me a seat!

  21. Ah, bless her, she looks gorgeous in that Cape, you are such a great knitting grandma! I'm a bit surprised that you have many UFOs to be honest, but if they all finish like your canvas, it will have been worth the wait!

  22. Love the cape, it looks good on your GD, I miss my mother she used to do all the knitting and I miss the click clack of the needles. oh you might want to alter the date its 300 not 200 LOL Sorry i am getting around so late, my week is spiralling out of control.

    Happy WOYWW belated that it is
    Hugs Eliza & Yoda

  23. She's adorable in her pretty pink cape! I see you like washi tape. ;) Thanks for the earlier visit! Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #71
