WOYWW - are there 2 Wednesdays a week??

Hello again, all.  Thank you all for your lovely comments last week.  Another week has flown by. We've had a (mostly wet, mostly cold) Bank Holiday here int he UK and I braved the elements to go to Kew Gardens again on Saturday morning (photos on my other blog, check the link in the side bar) but other than that, not a lot's been going on here.  I've watched Liverpool lose another footie game (roll on next season...) 

Craftwise, I have got another couple of pages done for the Tim Holtz Rulerz book and they are still hanging around on my desk today.



I 've had these mini jigsaw pieces for ages and not used them before (!!)










I've used DI's throughout so far to colour the pages, but didn't keep track as I went, as to which ones.
The flowers are Prima - I love these pink and white ones (they come from the Essentials Shabby Chic tube - that I do know as they're still in it)

I've ordered some more new Wendy Vecchi stamps (at the time of writing - because I have to prep this on a Tuesday night - they haven't arrived yet) .... yes, I know, I know - but I resisted as long as I could, ok!! AND I will be going to the South Stamp Show at Worthing on Saturday - anyone else coming/going? I quite like this show, it's a small one compared to some but nice and friendly.  It's run by Hobby Art, who as you saw last week are responsible for getting me into this addiction I call a hobby..... My only "complaint" this time is that LB Crafts won't be there cos it clashes with one of their Artsycraft weekends (must go to one of those soon, they sound fantastic) - although that could be good for the wallet.

As I think I've shown you most of my boxes and drawers now, I've done a kind of "front on view" of the wall of my living room with all my boxes lined up along the wall. You are NOT seeing the other side of the room until I've cleared out some old (non crafting) magazines that are kind of taking over that area. I was going to do that over the weekend, but......!!

I still haven't done anything for my WOYWWAC so need to get my thinking cap on...

Last week we got to the magic 100 - wonder how many people will play along this week - pop over here to find out!  Have a great Wednesday, and if the office is quite and I get away with it, I'll come see you - otherwise, it will be this evening when I get home.

I was telling someone about the stuff you had the other day (I have a poltry half dozen or so wooden stamps - but you are SOMETHING ELSE LOL...

How on earth you can need MORE stamps - i cannot understand... maybe you should think about designing them yourself??? But i must say, you do make good projects!!!
