WOYWW again

Here we are on Wednesday again! How are you all, fellow WOYWWers? I hope you've had a good week.
I have had a quiet week craftwise, it's odd but often after a show I find I can't get crafting! - but I did make a couple of birthday cards yesterday (see yesterday's post)

I went to the South Stamp Show at Worthing on Saturday and met up with some friends, blogging and non-blogging! I didn't spend as much as usual (mainly cos LB Crafts weren't there, being at their Artsycraft weekend) but here is my stash
I got various bits of bling - crystals in various colours, some ribbons (I have even sorted out the ribbon box - shock!! For the moment it's not just a glorious muddle but when I need something that's at the bottom, it will all change) I got a new bottle of glossy accents, some packs of buttons and a couple of stamps - two wood mounted Penny Black ones, and a set of clear Hobby Art greetings (remember I said in a previous post I didn't have many small greetings?  Well, now I have a whole sheet of them....) Finally, a bottle of dusty concord DI reinker so I can make up some perfect pearl/reinker mixer with purple.

So, I think I did quite well "only" getting this much!! Like I said, I really missed Lin Brown not being there!

I haven't done any shots of my living/craft room this time, cos you've seen it all now, (if you need a fix on the drawers, you'll have to check back a few WOYWW's.)

I am still trying to do my Sunday Stamper challenge for this week (to use gold) so this is what's on my workspace-on-the-floor at the moment:-
a couple of gold flowers - my first metal one - I found it really fiddly with the metal cost it kept squishing - and a grungepaper one that is inked in wild honey and sprayed with solar gold glimmer mist.

The tag is totally unrelated to the challenge (indeed, so may the flowers be, yet, as I don't know what to do with them at the moment!) but I was playing with the new Wendy Vecchi stamps I got in the post last week. The balloons stamped on the tag are Paperbag Studios and the tag is crushed olive and tumbled glass - I like that combination.

I'm off now to check out what you are all up to on your desks today. See you soon. Oh, and for any people passing through, this is wherre you go to find Julia, our hard working hostess to tell you all about WOYWW - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday  At the time of posting this, the link to today's WW isn't up yet (it's early!!) but check it out. It'll take all day, (and night!) but check it out!!

The stamps are lovely too-oh dear there isn't enough time to use it all.This WOYWW is a challenge to my geography as I keep plaintively asking DH "where's ------?" and thinking well I won't be able to go and play with them then!
