A new challenge, a new view for WOYWW and a new release!

The behind the scene desk is a little crazy because as usual we are burning the midnight oil


but we'll just put on some fresh lipstick and a dash of perfume and we'll be fine right?? I mean let's give it up for all things Pleasantville! Our release will be slow and steady over the next week, so please keep checking back - I mean was there even a word for "stress" in the late 50's early 60's? I think not. As long as dinner is on the table by 6pm we'll be just fine!   

Our sweet little hostess w/the mostess
   
So with no further hairdo...this is what is on the next AmberInk's InKredible 21 day challenge:


We go back to the days when June Cleaver was everybody's favorite mother
and we get to look at things with rose colored glasses. The world is kind and
gentle, the neighbors are willing to give a helping hand to anybody in need, we
treat each other with respect - and of course the entire time we are doing all
of this we will be wearing pearls and smiling!

It starts with each one of us, and we'd sure like to see things get nice again!

Please join us with your AK's and RAK's with A.INK's this month.

Last month Lynne Phelps won Challenge #2 and created this wonderful set with Amber


Lynne has been a dream client - she knew exactly what she wanted and was clear and polite in every request. She has been on the "artist" end before so the artist understanding came through. See the progress in Winning Developments .

We are SO excited to work with Wendy Price who won Challenge #3.

Sheila said...

Yay for being #1. June Cleaver is pretty awesome.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Congrats on making #1 this week. The word for stress in those times was alcoholism! Truly, studies show that women of the 50s were lushes. Glad I can look at June Cleaver, but would never want to live in her times. (No 12)

Spyder said...

No, nor me, to answer Bleubeard and Elizabeth, I'd go insane...umm? More insane! Happy WOYWW

I kinda loved those skirts with the big puffy underskirts so they stuck out, although I'm too young to have worn any of them being a 70s gal.

Julia Dunnit said...

Stress? No, but I believe Prozac was on trial!! Gorgeous images gals, as for the 21 day thing - you're nuts! Loving it! And wel done on no 1 - who would've thought it would become such a thing, how great that something so unimportant gives us all such giggles!!

Great times the 50's - if you had plenty of money. Not to good for the general public. Not a h/w in the 50's jsut a child really.
Love the stsmps though and the images. there is not the same romantic imagery of h/w these days. Not many people do it in pearls and full make-up. At least not that I know off!!!

Carolynne said...

Lovely stamps.
I was a babe at the beginning of the 50's and while I was growing up some things were so much better than now but also a lot were worse.

Susan Allan said...

The stamps are really nice. I agree with Carilynne, above....when you look back there are few, really true comparisons, things were so different.
Have a great Wednesday

Doone said...

did you know that it is not possible to be stressed AND to breathe (deep yogic breath of relaxation) properly at the same time? -

Dx (104) = so chilled and breathing so well i am almost asleep!
