WOYWW #175: It's Fall!

Hello there WOYWW dudes and dudettes! I missed you guys so much! Have you noticed I only blog on Wednesdays now? Life is hectic with school and practice (I play basketball). We start our matches next Saturday and we'd be traveling every single week. Yikes!
Haven't had a chance to link up last week but I'm all set for a long journey of blog hopping this week. :)

I have to tell you the weather in Egypt has just started to get into the autumn-y mood! It's still hot during the day but you can get some amazingly refreshing breeze in the afternoon.
As usual, I'm so late when it comes to making cards for season greetings. But better late than never!
Here's how my desk looked like after I've finished making a couple of cards:

Glitter, googly eyes, ribbon, paper doilies, warm colored scrapbooking paper, some watercolor pencils and my finished "products".

Do you like my "Wicked Witch of The West" bookmark? I made it out of polymer clay. I think it'd be perfect for Halloween don't you think? :)

Oh, and since so many of you guys expressed surprise (?) that I'm an Egyptian and that there are people who are actually living "out there" lol
and some of you said they wanted to see my house/neighborhood, so there goes!

This is my Photo Corner. I go to the print lab every now and then to print a collection of the best photographs I've taken in the last couple of weeks. And that is my PC where I meet you guys every Wednesday! :):)

These are my little bookshelves. One for books in English and another for Arabic ones.

I guess that's not how you wanted to "Explore Egypt" but I promise I'll take some more photographs (of our neighborhood this time) and show you guys next week. But if you like, you can take a look at this post where I kept a pretty good record of my trip to Luxor (a city you visit to see the ancient Egyptian monuments, tombs and temples)

In other news, I've been making more fall and Halloween cards and occasionally, birthday cards:

I also had a little trip to the post office today to send some happy mail for my friends around the globe. :)

That's all folks!
Now hop on over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a look at all the creative workdesks out there!

Until next week, craft along!

  10. Hi Roudi,

    I've been MIA for a while.... got your email and will respond today. I disabled my Facebook page - that's why you couldn't find me there. I just got home yesterday from a quick trip to Colorado to visit a friend.
