WOYWW - 26th Feb

Not much room for anything on my workspace today - for the very good (strike that  - for the very annoying) reason that my TV has finally given up the ghost and won't work at all  - so have to watch the portable tv from the bedroom on my computer footstool!


So now as well as needing (definately not just wanting) to save money for all the new stash that is being launched at the American CHA trade show later this week - I now have to find some money to buy a new TV!  Where are those winning lottery numbers when you need them!


So as there is nothing to see on my craftspace today, here is another shot of the boxes of unmounted stamps  (Paperartsy in the box on the left, apart from the Paperbag studios set at the back, and assorted ones in the box on the right)
The green object in front of the drawer unit is a storage box I got recently for a few quid and need to assemble soon.

If you have landed here, one of the few people on the planet that don't know why I am showing you piles of stash in a very untidy living room, check out Julia's place (The Stamping Ground) for about 150 other desks.... Have a great day!
(Edit) reading some of your comments early on, I may have given the impression I am going to CHA - I wish - it's trade only - but my wish list for when the new ranges are released is mega long.....

Ah, there's probably nothing to good on the t.v. anyway if your neck of the woods is like it is here - much more fun to live in a bubble and have moolah for CHA.
Have a great one...#8 again ;)

Sorry to hear about your TV, this time of year all the shows are ordinary anyway.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I am so sorry to hear about the TV going. At least you have a spare, even if it is an inconvenient portable. I'm sure you'll find a way to get another one soon.

Sorry I missed you last week. My time was simply not my own. At least I'm trying to make it up this week. I simply can't believe how many stamps you have. And I hope you'll show the storage box when it's finished. I'll bug you about it, too!! Happy WOYWW from #10.

Cardarian said...

Well let me tell you you are not the only one in need of a new tv - mine gave in on Sunday so I should be hunting for one although it wasn't in any of my financial plans! Lovely stash - so many Paperarty stamps - I love them but only have 2 sets!
good luck with the new TV!
Hugs,
Cardarian

Marjo said...

Hehe, everybody wants to go to CHA, all I can say is it's a good thing I am not going. I have absolutely no room for any more stuff!! I know I would buy lots of yummy goodies even if I didn't need it. My stuff already proves that fact...lol

Wipso said...

It's always the way that these things give up when you least want them to isn't it? Hope you get your new telly soon.

Morning, sorry to hear your TV has gone to TV heaven. I am glad I cannot go to CHA as I would need to pay some real excess duty and my Bank Manager might be phoning me to curb my spendings on the other hand could offer me a loan. Cannot wait to see what comes out next week. Big Hugs. JO.xx *48*

Sue said...

Ciara said...

My boyfriend seems to be willing our TV to break just so he can get a 3D one! Although I'm not sure I like the idea of those silly glasses.

i'd love a rummage through your box of stamps please!

Jinny Holt said...

Sorry to hear your TV bit the dust. I can't work without the darn thing going in the background. I don't like silence. Thanks for a peak at all your stamps there. I am dreading the CHA launch! OMG I will be broke for the rest of the summer! Vickie #59

Artyjen said...

I'm convinced I'll win the lottery any day soon!!! LOL
When I do I'll make sure the tellie gets replaced....maybe even help with the stash wish list! ;)
We got to dream!

Karen said...

Sorry to hear about your TV, but just think of all that extra time you could have to craft without one LOL!! Love the look of those stamps :)

i cannot remember the last time I watched TV - but I do enjoy Radio 4, interesting workspace.

Spyder said...

I have a TV on the wall and sometimes that decides it doesn't want to work, so I switch to the lap top, very useful things! Love all those draws, really want them
opened though|!!!

((Lyn)) Happy WOYWW #68

MaggieC said...

Have you noticed that everything breaks down at the worst possible time and usually all together? Still, at least you will have more time for crafting without a tv to watch. Have lots of fun at the CHA.

Elizabeth said...

Forget the TV, spend it all at the CHA I say :) Love all those drawers and would just like the opportunity to rummage through those stamps! Elizabeth #60

scrappystickyinkymess said...

To be honest I seem to watch only the BBC iplayer during the day - and listen to Radio a lot :) But *I* want those winning numbers so get in line... :)

Andria said...

I'd love the winning lotto numbers to buy my own Craft Barn. So envious of your workspace and storage!

butlersabroad said...

Well, we're back home processed and legal again for another 10 years! Can't believe you're after more new stash! You're going to have to get a lock up soon! I can't craft when the telly is on, can't do anything when it's on, it's too much of a distraction to me. If the voltage was right you could have our old Sony as we're just got our very first flat screen TV, about 10 year later than anyone else, but we don't watch it that much!

Neet said...

Sorry to hear about your tv - but just keep saving and pretty soon the new stuff will be arriving from CHA. Hopefully I will blog it all when I get back from Downtown.
Are you a Paperartsy fan also?

Twiglet said...

Don't worry about the tv - spend your money on new stash - you will have much more fun!!

Simply Shaz said...

Sorry to hear about your tv :( There is always something else that eats away at at craft stash cash!

Tracy Evans said...

There is always something else to spend your money on, tv or crafts mmmmm, decisions decisions lol. Must admit I have a long list from the new products being launched at CHA.

Tertia said...

Bummer that your TV broke! Forget about saving for a new one, just buy lots of stash and you will be so busy, you won't even miss it.
Happy WOYWW

My wish list tends to be all T!m stuff and Bo bunny at the moment. I hate it when the tv goes on you. 120

Scrapcollectr said...

Good luck with the TV situation.....but if it were craft supplies or TV, hmmm, I think I know what I'd choose!
Then again who knows what lovely new and improved items we'll see come out of CHA. You can always play with all those unmounted stamps! That would make for a nice day!

Sorry about the TV. My son left behind his big flat screen when he moved to Australia; I never watch the thing. Such a waste.

Cheers,
