WOYWW 141

Welcome to another WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?) brainchild of Julia Dunnit (now a  proud White Van Driver for Mr D's business)

As promised I have stash to share (some of you saw it after I got home from the Stamperama show in Stevenage on Sunday) :
Just one bag.... doesn't look much, does there?  Shall I let you see what I got...
OK then, here it is!!   Stencils, wooden bits to alter, bits and bobs, stamps, dies, paint...
The show was fab (see Sunday's post for details) and I met some blog friends who now ARE friends!!
This was the view from my cramped perch at the computer (yes, it IS uncomfortable, if I sit here too soon after dinner I get terrible indigestion!!) and that's yesterday's journal page on the "desk"
and this is Tuesday's (yesterday's technically, as I write this on Tuesdays) which I'm not happy with - it's too dark IRL but looks ok here where the flash has lightened it.... maybe I need to go over it with a pale wash or something if I can do it without ruining the stencilling...  Anyhow I shall keep fiddling with it!

So do tell - and show - us what you've been up to - can't wait to come and see!
I shall schedule this as always and link it when I get up - wonder what time Julia will post this week!

Popping in before bed and making you no. 1 on my list... just knew you and Stevenage would hit it off - love the goodies. You need a 5 day weekend to get it all into inky action...
great blue page there...you could seal your fave areas with matt medium before adding more... Bye for now...Sarah (at 64,987 probably)

What a great pile of goodies! I love the wooden spool, the birdhouse and the TH dies. The tattered leaves die is going to be one of my next purchases, there are so many ways to use it.

Happy Woyww!

Love your journal page - fab colour. Now that stash! Almost as much as my month long marathon buy. Oh Helen, we must shop together one day.
Would love to meet up and see one another in the flesh so to speak.
In the meantime, keep crafting and shopping.

Now that's a Houdini-esque bag if I ever saw one, lovely new goodies that came out of it I have to say. Sounds like you had a great day, apart from the delay getting there. Feet are enjoying the socks, I was wearing them all yesterday evening!
