WOYWW 103 - one week to go

Well, hopefully we will  be here today becuase blogger is playing up again!! And I am having other problems with my computer too, I installed an upgrade to my AVG antivirus programme at the weekend (I only have the free version) and since then it has been soooooooo slow doing anything!!

However, you are here to see my desk - the patch on the floor I kneel at that you all know so well now, after very nearly 2 years of this fun way to spend a Wednesday hosted by the lovely Julia.
My latest reading matter!! Although I should probably cut back on some of my American publications - they do rather take over the place!!

My PIF is all ready for next week, it's come round very quickly - so for now, be off with you, over to the stamping ground and check some interesting desks!!

I have a huge pile of Somerset Studio mags but stopped buying them,earlier this year, I wasnt getting much from them (apart from looking at the pretty pictures LOL) I now get Cloth paper scissors, half the price and many more actual 'how to' articles

Spyder said...

I have millions of mags, I am addicted! Sometimes you can play, 'spot the same picture' in some of them! Or... my favourite, 'which picture is back to front or upside down!' Have a great week,

Morning Helen! Happy WOYWW.... Yes, your comment was left and I'm wondering the same - if Blogger will play nice today for us! Thanks for stopping by.

Julia Dunnit said...

I'm nit a Somerset reader - it's always been a bit too arty for me, but I love Take Ten and miss it. I unsubscribed from everything last year...money, of course.Hiss. Still have craft Stamper on order at the shop though, so don't miss out entirely! I wonder if you have two knee shaped dents in your carpet?

okienurse said...

Heavy reading there! I used to read Take Ten at night before bed and my DH says I can't read in bed anymore cause I make too many comments about what I am reading!! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #48

GLENDA BROOKS said...

I love reading, but seldom take a book to bed. If I read lying down I go to sleep. Thanks for sharing.

Linda Elbourne said...

I need a magazine reviewer ... you know to let me know which one to buy each month ... would you? Huh? Would you :0)

jodpea said...

I always read in bed... and in the bath and at the dining table, I can't even think about competing with your paperback collection tho, Helen! I find magazines hard to hold tho, I dont like hardbacks for the same reason.. just a quirk! I've not been here for a while, does this short post mean u've curbed your buying habit?!

Neet said...

Nice mags there - just the ticket for a rainy day in the north of England. Could do with them right now! Hugs, Neet #11

Thanks for sharing, have a great week.

I love the Take 10 mags. They have great ideas inside.

I am still working on my PIF!

Oooh I love those magazines although not read one for a while now - have fun reading! Sunshine Girl No. 60

SueH said...

Your little patch on the floor is looking wonderful this week Helen and I know just what you mean about the American publications. I cancelled a couple of my subs recently partly because I’m running out of room and partly because the exchanges rate is so crap it makes them extremely expensive with the postage as well. I still love Take Ten though.

Happy Crafting!

angelfish said...

Ooh lovely mags:) I used to kneel on the floor too, but I've sneaked my desk into the lounge now!

Artyjen said...

Mmmm those mags are pretty! Just a bit on the expensive side...so try to limit myself!!! LOL
Believe that you will believe anything! ;)

Elizabeth said...

Hi Helen, Somerset Studio seems to be a popular magazine, I've seen it featured a lot on the blogs I visit. They look great for inspiration but probably a tad too expensive to have shipped over here. Blogger is causing havoc again - I might or might not be able to post this comment. Elizabeth x #53

Pam said...

Love a good crafting mag! Hugs Pam x

scrappystickyinkymess said...

I still have SS back to the premier issue and up thru the early 2000s and then the odd issue I manage to find then. I love it. If I could find it easily I would grab it every time, but now Borders is closed I never seem to see it in any shop I get to. Oh well....

Enjoy

MaggieC said...

I am not much of a magazine buyer these days. I found they were not on my wave length (or vice versa, maybe) so I just buy the odd one occasionally if there is something special in it. I do watch some of the crafting programmes on TV, but I am getting more selective with those too. I prefer to spend my money on stash, but I think I must put my credit card away for a while too. I did spend a lot of time yesterday setting up a wish list on Amazon, including all the Barbara Gray goodies I want for one thing. It is rather a long wish list already.

Kathleen said...

Your magazines look so interesting I'm intrigued to know the contents. I used to use the free AVG and upgraded to the full version and my computer nearly came to a stop it was that slow. I had to uninstall it, I also found that there was little or no customer support. Hope you have better look with it.

Jingle said...

THAT, my friend, is some good reading! I don't have either of those in hand yet!

Charlene said...

Hmmm..looks like great reading! Thanks for popping in...I will try to see if this posts.

Paula Gale said...

Hi Helen

long time no speak. Hope you are well and things are good. I didn't think i'd heard of those magazines or seen them on the shelves here - no wonder. But then again, I have heard of the Somerset one-whatever it is!

No views of your drawers full of gorgeous stamps? :O( Maybe another time... i'm missing them!

big hugs to you,

Paula x x x

Anne said...

I have just discovered Take ten magazines. Happy WOYWW. Anne x

JoZart said...

The American mags are a real indulgence, and an expensive one too so enjoy them to the full.

karen said...

Oooh, I love the Somerset magazine. Have not tried the Take Ten one but have heard great things about it! I just love to drool over the the projects in the Somerset mag!

Neil said...

Love Somerset Studio! Not got any of their mags yet though, I just browse online and drool......

Di said...

Hi Helen - love those mags although you've now worried me by being so organised for PiF :(( Di xx

SueH said...

I know just what you mean about the American publications Helen. I recently cancelled some of the ones I used to get because what the bad exchange rate and the cost of postage it was getting rather expensive.
Mind you I still order the odd copy of Take Ten every now and again….I just long that book!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a message, its most appreciated.

Happy Crafting!
