What On YOUR workdesk? What's on mine? Tags...

Been busy making some tags again (Tuesday, as I have to prep this the evening before) so they are on my craft mat.

I am so NOT going to say "how is it Wednesday again" honestly!












The tag on the left is my entry to Tag Tuesday and the one on the right is just for fun, stamped with Paperartsy stamps.
Since we last met (over at Julia's for the gorgeousness that is WOYWW (what's on your workdesk Wednesday, in case you didn't know) I have spent a small (i.e. large) amount of money at Ally Pally and bought a huge amount of stash - I can't resist showing it here again in case you missed it!
I've managed to play with some of it already, and almost found a home for most of it around the living room!
You missed a great day, or, if you were there, wasn't it packed?! I met Cardarian who must have won the prize for travelling furthest to be there! It was lovely to see you, hope you enjoyed Ally Pally!  There were some great demo's - most of them by fellow WOYWWers!!

Hop on over to Julia's to catch up on all the other great workspaces on show.

Wow, I'm impressed that you have already found room for "most" of your buys. I know how much you spent at only ONE booth, so you did great with finding space for things. Some day I might even meet you there (dream on, of course). Happy WOYWW.

Ohhh lucky you getting to Ally Pally. Your new stash looks great. Have fun with it.
Love the Paperartsy tags, they are my favourite stamps at the minute, just gorgeous.
Typical it waits until you're ready to go out before it pours isn't it, did exactly the same to me. It's been drizzly all day until school time and then we had rivers running down the road. I've still got wet feet!!
Hugs Lisax

butlersabroad said...

Wow, lots of great new stuff. You can come and rest your weary head on my sofa whenever you want. It's actually a sofa bed so you can sleep and craft in the same room, in fact, you'll probably be able to sleep and craft in the bed, lol!

Hugs
