WOYWW? bet you can't guess

Welcome to another Wednesday snoop round the world's craft spaces.  Check Julia's for all the details.

If you were here last week (thank you!) you will have known I was going to Newbury Artstamps on Saturday - and - um - I shopped - then shopped some more...
 here's a little reminder.  If you look carefully you can see a wooden pot that as soon as I saw it, I thought "Fresco paint"....
 and another pile!
and here it is, part prepared.... May have to take some more pics as you can't really see too well.... I painted the larger sides in Dusty Rose and the ends in Baltic Blue, before applying the magic crackle and Snowflake all over.... You may guess my next step from the art parts packet sitting on the craft mat - but that will be for another day!  Need to find a home for those new stamps too...

Anyhow, that's me for this week - have a great day snooping - I am off to do some too now!

You never didn't go and buy all that?! You NAUGHTY! What are those stamps in the first pic, on the left, the branchy birdy ones? I recognise the packaging but I don't recognise the stamps. Tell me, please, go on, tell me, tell me:D

You have so many fun new toys. I spy some of those candies that Kath has been showing on her blog too! Very fun stuff!

Morti said...

I think I need to walk away now and stop my drooling..... enjoy your fab new stash - don't forget to save the Ideology packaging cos Hels did something rather brilliant with that for Craft Stamper!

Julia Dunnit said...

Wasn't in a position to go this year..we should meet up next year for sure - I can walk around behind you and just pick up another of anything you choose - save me the trouble of choosing - I can see nothing in your piles that I wouldn't have wanted!

butlersabroad said...

I like Julia's comments, like she's hanging on to your coat tails or something, although you are a supreme shopper!! When those 3 clings arrived my husband asked why I only ordered three!! So I went on to JoAnn online and got some other stuff while it was on sale and free shipping, lol! Enjoy your weekend.

Hugs
Brenda
