It might be easier to say, what is not on my desk... I have been so crazy busy getting ready for my sons graduation party this weekend and getting some crafting done at the same time. 

I starting reading through my blogs and noticed that there were quite a few WOYWW and thought, it could not possible be Wednesday again already. I really don't know where the time goes anymore. Make sure to check out more WOYWWer's if you are new to this and join in. You get to see and make new friends from around the world. Start over at Julia's Stamping Ground and there is a large list of all the wonder people that love to join in each week. 

Ok, so back to what I was saying. Man, I swear I have A.D.D. or something. I started a really cute envelope recipe holder yesterday and I am almost done. I just have to finish stamping the cards to go inside. What do you think?

I worked on that in the morning and then again in the evening. During the afternoon I went over to help my grandmother and saw the coolest praying mantis. It was no bigger than an inch or 2. 

It was cool because he was just running around on the railing and checking out his shadow. 

Ok, well I guess I should get back to work and get something else done for the party on Saturday. Hope you all have a wonderful week.

Your recipe holder is so gorgeous. It reminded me of a sweet letter writing set I was given when I was little ... funny how those memories pop up from nowhere! Happy Woyww Liz 133 x

Your recipe holder is beautiful, I love it but don't feel quite the same about the praying mantis and his great long legs, like his colour though......Happy WOYWW, Anne x #54

Your recipe pouch looks excellent & easy to tuck in recipes you have pulled out of magazines etc if you don't want to rewrite everyone ! Mantis is very exotic - not many of them here in Wales ! Have a great crafty week ! Ali #60

I love your recipe holder! Just too cool! What a cool bug! My old place used to get a lot of big bugs on the front porch, but the new place only has ants.

Thanks for sharing!

The recipe holder is great. Pretty and useful; who could ask for more? And I love the idea of the praying mantis checking out its shadow!

cheers, rachel #11
