WOYWW my 5th

Good wednesday all!  I see woywws popping up since early this morning and i am enjoying the look around peoples meesy work spaces  lol if you would like to check them out go to  Julia's stamping ground where all the mess can be seen and shared.
Please click for larger image and do please leave a comment i love hearing from everyone
Let me see what i have here.  

oh this is the smash book i started. can you believe it was an old microwave cook book?
an original page in the book.  i wish i would have taken a pic of the cover..umph

well this is the inside cover and first page.  i was holding onto an old camelot calendar and now i have a place to use those wonderful images

and everyone know that a smash book is where you can keep your precious junk..lol  so here was a cand wrapper that i saved from wheni was 13 years old from my cousin in japan.( thats on the orange and pink page) the opposite page is one from my favorite magazine when i was young ( Wizard, for all those comic book fans)

one page with tickets of my 17 month olds first trip to the aquarium

one of my boys birthday party that we celebrated this summer.  i mean the napkins from the theme was art in itself i had to save one along with pics i printed out to make a custom coloring book as the thank you gift.

just page prep( an old manga book and mag pages)


an envelope with my first WASHI TAPE experiment.  i do say they came out nice

the back cover with my washi tape

front cover

my homemade washi tape


inside cover with my homemade washi tape

man this is a lot of washi tape pics??? hehe

another prep page

and one with baseball tickets.
Well i hope you enjoyed.  if you are wondering about the purple bag in the pictures.  it is actually a bag i put together to keep all my smash journaling things in.. i will do another blog about that soon.  hope you enjoyed the sneek peek. and i confiscated the dinner table again with my mess!

  5. Love your washi tape! I'm making some myself but I like yours better! :) I also didn't know just exactly what a smash book was but now I do, thanks! Yours is turning out really well and that is just brilliant to re-use and re-cycle an older book, still in good shape but info no longer needed/wanted. Also completely agree about that napkin from your sons b-day party...I mean wow and its just a napkin?!
    Take care dear, you are *all* better this week, right? Hope so! :)

Ok I am the dummy today,well ok this month. LOL I think you like Washi Tape and your home made tape is just devine, love it.
