WoywW 566

Hello Everyone 

How you all doing?? 
Hope you're all safe, well and 
carrying on crafting regardless..!?

Here today to show what's been keeping me occupied this week 
share with you all along with the WoywW crew as our creative 
leader Julia over @ the stamping ground calls out this day to 

This was yesterday's desk, changing nibs in marker pens and reigniting 
my love for Graphitint & Pastel pencils. The Hare is a stamp designed 
by Pink Ink seemed a nice image to work with to remind myself, as 
one day can merge into another it's still Easter this weekend..

This happened whilst listening to the music coming from my Son & Daughter's 
rooms as they work from home, amazing how those classic tunes come back! 

Don't you just love those patterned ears.. 
A card for each of the Mum's and the journal page is waiting to be framed, 
one for my Daughter to take back to Sweden when life gets back to normal?

As my routine reshapes around me, today is now one of my designated 
online days. Excited to see how you've been using your invaluable time.. 
it's precious even when each minute, hour & day roles into another..

Stay Safe & Easter Blessing... 
Tracey xx

Beautiful cards and page! I love the hare, all the detail is gorgeous and it works perfectly for Easter Cards too 😀. I dropped shopping off over at my mum and dad's yesterday as well as their Easter card which had a bunny rabbit on it, like you I think I may do a page of the same design to wish everyone a Happy Easter here in blogland. Thanks for the inspiration and wishing you a happy week! Stay safe and well! Hugs, Jo x

As you know, I adore hares but not all images appeal - this one does, it's lovely and the ears are fun! They make for great cards. Hope you're keeping ok in these strange times, being crafters is definitely helping us deskers I think.

Wow ...what unique and fabulous 'hares' and yes the patterned ears are adorable and so are your creations. I am sure your daughter will love taking one back with her x. We are enjoying listening to music too and also pop master at 10.30....A new routine for us x Stay well Tracey x

Hi Tracey, gorgeous card you made, that is a lovely hare. Very similar to one from Hobby Art, but I think yours is bigger, and has those gorgeous patterns on it. Have a lovely week, Stay safe, Hugs, Shaz #10 X

Hi Tracey, I LOVE those super hares with patterned ears - I want patterned ears, too! Beautiful work and lovely colours. Life keeps us on our toes just now, but I'm happy as I can go out for a walk once a day, and that really is something! Take care, stay safe, hugs, Valerie

I love your hares, Tracey, complete with their beautiful patterned ears! They are gorgeous, and I love all your colouring. I continue to live my life much as usual, at home, in my normal routine (apart from the groceries sometimes being delivered on a different day, if I can get a slot!) - I feel very blessed all round and glad to have my hubby around so much more of the time at the moment.

Thank you for your visit, and yes, I've been enjoying working on the mandalas, despite the "oops" moment! I re-gessoed them this afternoon and they are now ready for more colouring. I shall probably do another batch without the "oops" and compare the results!!

The kitties are sweet, together, aren't they! The give us such a lot of joy. They have been enjoying playing in the garden in the sunshine, helping my hubby with everything he's doing out there - it's looking so great!

I'm glad you enjoyed seeing the cannellini recipe - not at all difficult to do, and it was delicious! Enough for another day, too.

Keep safe and well, and happy WOYWW,
Shoshi x #17

Beautiful coloring of the rabbit!
All our Easter stuff to the kids should have been received by now.
Hope you have a blessed Easter!

It's starting to feel a bit like Ground Dog Day here, up the stairs down the stairs then down the garden and drop off the stuff then repeat the process so I decided that today would be a rest from cabin jobs and I've been in the garden most of the day. I've weeded the strawberry patch, sorted the edges and some pond work too and then gave the dogs a trim though I don't think they were very impressed. Loving the hare and yes the ears are brilliant. The vase stamp is lovely too which I think is AALL and Create. They make great stamps. Wishing you a happy woyww and lots of crafty thoughts to keep you busy, Angela x15x

Helen said...

The cards are fabulous! Working hard here, not had much play time but hoping the Easter weekend might allow for that... if the mojo hangs around! Have a good week, stay safe. helen #1

Neet said...

That is one fabulous hare! Wow, those Pink Design stamps really are something else. It looks so good in your journal and on both cards. Love his ears! Never heard of Graphitint pencils so will have to look them up. In the meantime you just enjoy using them.
Sounds like a good Easter is on the cards for your house with your son and daughter both home. All you need now is some lovely sunny days and the five of you can have a great time.
Stay safe and well,
Hugs, Neet 2 xx

Gosh that stamp must be very big - cute too! Expertly shaded! Glad to hear you're well and you have your daughter back from Sweden. Considering that Sweden's not doing the lock-down, she's probably safer at home. Enjoy your time together as a family! Thanks for your visit and Happy Easter! xx zsuzsa #16

Heather M said...

Hi Tracey, gorgeous hare stamp, and you have coloured them beautifully. It must be wonderful to have your children at home with you. I'm missing my daughters terribly. I just want to hug them, and my grandchildren. I'm still working, but from home, so not getting a lot of crafting time. I'm looking forward to the Easter break - put my feet up and relax, and potter about, and craft. Have a lovely week and stay safe, hugs Heather xx #27

Dorlene Durham said...

Love the rabbit stamp and how you colored. Amazing job lady! I’m completing a lot of unfinished projects as well as organizing as much as possible too. I mean...I have the time...Have a wonderful week. Dorlene #33

I just love this adorable bunny Tracey. It's nice taking a peak at your work desk. Hugs-Erika

aussie aNNie said...

Cutest bunny love this one and your colouring is sensational. I will admit I put black onto my blog after seeing how easy it was to read yours...thank you.xx

BJ said...

Oh would you believe, the day I join in for over a year's absence, the broadband breaks! Yep we were without for 24 hours but now it is fixed, horrah!

Loving the hares (Hares was my maiden name) third desk I have come across them today, makes me smile, yes love the patterned ears! :)

Thanks for the visit BJ#19

Caro said...

I love your hares - they are so much fun. Take care and stay safe my friend. Happy Belated WOYWW. With love & God Bless, Caro x (#20)

Redanne said...

I have been so tempted by that Hare stamp and I love how beautifully you have used him/her, it will look wonderful framed! Yes, the patterned ears are so lovely and the eyes are so expressive.

I love seeing the glimpse of one of Tracy's stamped images too and look forward to seeing it finished.

We have just been plodding along here, structuring our days as well as we can but then I got my official 'shielding' letter today and it was quite the reality check. I need a better plan now for the longer term.... if only I felt half as creative as you. Stay safe and well and enjoy your family time. Hugs, Anne xxx

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Running a little late, but have some time. Thanks for the visit, I love your Rabbits, looks great.And an awesome black/white stamp in first photo. Wishing you and yours a Blessed Easter.

Julia Dunnit said...

I’m late again Tracey, sorry! Glad that you’re finding some structure to the week, my word you’re right that the days just roll around into one. I have that Pink Ink hare and didn’t recognise him coloured like that - You are a genius with colouring you really are. Funny isn’t it, that I can’t remember what I had for breakfast but I can remember the words to every song of my period!! Hope you’re enjoying having the ‘children’ home and that you’ve found a way to avoid having to take on too much.

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

Glad the page inspired you Jo, I enjoy moments when creativity just takes over our time x

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

Makes everything so much clearer and kinder for my eyes Annie xx

Kyla said...

Loving the hare and the colouring is fantastic too.

Dorthe said...

My dear Tracey , your cards and picture for your daughter are all so wonderful,- so sweet and so beautifully made alive , by you, with your fantastic painting. The hare stamp, is the cutest , and I so love the grasses stamped beside him- could I ask which stamp it is ?
You are the most lucky Mum, to have both kids there with you , - I wonder when I will be able seeing my daughter- and grandkids, again- maybe like my x-SIL said, if we are lucky we meet for Christmas.... I dearly hope it will not take that long. Dearest I send you big warmest hugs, and wishes for you to stay safe and well . Dorthe- xoxo
