Huh? Wednesday? Then it must be...

..... what's on your workdesk Wednesday already!  Pop over to Julia's to see how many other like-minded  mad  nosey  people there are taking part this week!

Well, since we last congregated, I have as promised, been stash shopping!! I had a very enjoyable  morning at the Stamperama show in Stevenage on Sunday (before rushing home for the football, and yes, I made it in time.  Shame Liverpool threw away .... oh never mind, you don't care!)

So, stash.  Here's another quick pick of what I bought (and I have already used some of it!!) in case you missed Sunday's post.  Not as much as sometimes (well, there is Ally Pally at the end of September when I always spend LOADS.... and Worthing in a couple of weeks when I try hard not to.
I could have stood and watched Lin demo'ing all day at LB Crafts, (but had to do Hels' make and take, lol, so tore myself away).

LOVE those Paperartsy stamps - brand brand new, only pressed by Leandra on Saturday...... WOW!!!

Not done any more reorganising since last time, but will need to, because I had to buy some new Idea-ology bits and the drawers are already full.....
I am looking forward to having a go with the spools kit (check out this link, there is a video linked in Julie van Oosten's sidebar that shows you some ideas- it looks great!)
As for what's actually ON my workdesk (floor space) - it's my entry for Simon Says Stamp and Show - have you checked this new challenge site out?  "Our" Linda E is in charge!
Ok, well, I had better stop here, meant to be keeping it brief - have a great day/week bloghopping round the desks of the world!  See you next week.

Ooh you did do well, love the stamps on the far right especially. Although of course, am blinded by what to do with them because you lot are so good at them. Like your SSSSSSSSSS challenge piece too, that face image is beautiful, great colouring.

Oh - never been to SSS&S so thanks for the link. And not fair to make me drool over stash so early in the day - there are too many shopping hours left.

Hi Helen, firstly love your new stamps. I was at the show on Sunday too, I was demoing on the Little Claire stand, it would have been great to meet you!

I will be at Ali Pali and am hoping to get to Worthing, so let me know if you would like to meet up for coffee.

Artyjen said...

Love the stamps and your WV inspired piece :) Scrummy
It's always the case I find that as soon I have just the right box etc to store something...I then add to those somethings and just the right box becomes the wrong box if you get my waffle!! LOL

Do you ever accidentally replicate your buys Helen? Aw I so wish I was going to Ally Pally in September, but gotta save for new pc tower first *rats!* Still, should you be there in April (note, that wasn't a question *g*) I'll hopefully get to see you and have a snoop in your bag then ;)
