WOYWW 454 Happy Valentines Day

What a mess.
I have a friend, who, lets say, is not much of a housekeeper.
When ever I felt a total mess, I could go visit her, she would find  a cup, somewhere,  clear a place for us to sit, we could enjoy some time together, and I went home feeling much better about my housekeeping!
What are friends for!
After visiting me today you can feel much better about the state of your desks!

Shout Out to #CheapJoesAsheville for supporting #LEAFEaselRider.

You have to hop over to Quietfire Digital to see the front of the pop up.
(Please- it is lovely)
(UK deskers, it doesn't publish till 12am PDT, which is hours behind me)
This is for you Julia!!!

Here is the out take from that post!

I was going to sketch this on the front of the card inside of the heart and it didn't work out!

Thanks for visiting!

WOYWW 451 -Craft supply advent season- Womens March 2018

If you visit me with any regularity you know the last thing  I need is more of anything!
Attending the annual trade shows and design team work has kept me over the top in art supplies.
(just add imagination and creativity!)
And now I watch the demos in my PJ's on YouTube and make
Marco's happy with my order
(expected sometime in Feb, March, April)
I love it when the fads catch up to me.
Rose Gold. Yes!
The surprise drawer gift box is detailed 
The patterned paper on the box is made with stamps.

I'm planning on trying out the random embossing with that rose quart powder. Stay tuned on that one!
Black Mountain, NC Women's  March did not disappoint.
Led by our youngers!
Lots more photos on the
Facebook page.
It's a public group so anyone can see the photos.

WOYWW 443- C is for Chaos/ Special People

Christmas has arrived chez RainbowWeaves and some Chaos is required.
Everyone is getting ATC's this year.
Packages will be sent, with some assembly required!
So many new cutting files, so little time!
{all Christmas is on sale now too}
I'm leaving this mess out for the elves!
I believe!!!!

My other desk....
Once a month the Easel Rider, travels to West Asheville Rec center for therapeutic art, with some very special people.
Children of all ages and abilities, teach me about the true meaning of what it means to be able, and kind.
I never could have dreamed how far my heart could grow.
We covered containers with tissue to make vases and whatever holders.
Everyone learns and everyone teaches.
The beautiful van in the background is our traveling art studio, the Easel Rider.
Huge shout out to LEAF for giving me and my fellow teaching artists the opportunity to serve our community and bring art to those who need it most.
(that includes me!)

 Thanks so much for visiting and sharing the love!
Tis the season to be as jolly as you can!

WOYWW 440- Random acts of kindness and ATC's

The other day a local florist posted a special on orchids.
I jokingly posted, if anyone wants to bring me flowers I'll PM you my address.
Goddess be praised, a few hours later, these gorgeous blooms appeared on my porch, gifted to me by a lovely woman I've never met- 
Just like most of you dear deskers!
Newish  Quietfire stamps become ATC's.
The backgrounds are from my "off the desk" series-stuff left on my desk at the end of the day, 
too small to save, so use it or loose it.
went out to my dear friend in the midst of cancer treatments and more.
Prayers and blessings to you Candace.

Variation of Magic went to DD for her 30th
(how is that possible?)
Happy Birthday Faith!
You are the magic!

If I never see another snowflake again, I'll be ok on that.
Still, this sentiment speaks to me!

It doesn't take much to give the very best- yourself!
Tell everyone you know how much you love them every chance you get.
And send more cards and flowers- for no reason.
Random acts of kindness.
I'll vote for that!

Comments and Questions welcomed.
Thanks for visiting and for welcoming me to your place.

Hi Y'all, Robyn here
grateful to be glueing my fav  Designers and manufacturers together.
Quietfire Design digital files, stamps, stencils and dies all come together to enable you to 
create with out limits with a little help from our good friends at
Scrapbook Adhesives.

a digital file from Suzanne Silhouette Store

On the Mat
To create this 3-D lantern
  1. Remove paper pieces carefully from the mat- the kitty, bat and lantern are all one piece!
  2. Fold all scored lines, and fold the lantern up so you understand how the assembly, before you apply the adhesive.
  3. Embellish to your hearts content!
  4. Apply Scrapbook Adhesives Permanent dots to all the tabs except the top flap. Assemble and take your time alining as once you press in to place its permanent!
  5. Press.
  6. Admire!
I like using the dots in the runner as ever the permanent dots rub off easily if they get where you don't want them. 

ATC's are my fav expressive mode.
A small space can showcase the new
Quietfire Design Stamps 
in a big way
Quietfire Design now has both rubber and clear stamps.

The background

  1. Stamp acanthus background on Neenah Classic Crest  White 110lb in Delicata gold.
  2. Stamp the quote in Versafine Onyx Black and thermal embosse clear and queens gold.
  3. Cut thin strips of Scrapbook Adhesives sheets and apply to  the border or the card.
  4. Remove the cover sheet and apply Elizabeth Craft Design superfine glitter. 
  5. Burnish the glitter and wipe away woes with a swiffer cloth.
  6. Stamp dandelions in Delicata silver and fussy cut.
  7. Adhere dandelions to the card with Scrapbook adhesives 3-D foam squares.
  8. Admire!
