WOYWW 154

Hello, to WOYWW week 154!  If for some reason you don't know WOYWW (what's on your workdesk Wednesday?) check out Julia's blog here for the links and info.

For a change I've been shopping....some core'dinations paper stacks. (Thanks, Julia for the tip you left yesterday after I'd played with this!) And there is some more stash on the way.... oops! Show you next week!

So cos there isn't much happening on my desk today (can't help calling it a desk!) I'll share the aerial shot of the mess next to where I kneel to work - all my favourite things within reach!!

Anyhow I'll keep it short today and let you get round the desks. I made it to quite a lot last week, and thank you for all your visits and comments too.

if you're passing later there will be a new Tag it On challenge from Dragons-Dream.

Wow, this is the first time I've noticed your Suze pot. Not sure what you call it, but I know it's for melting UTEE (grin). Love the shot and glad to see you are still playing with that core paper!! Happy WOYWW from #5.

Jennie -The Artistic Stamper said...

Wow, now that is an impressive collection of goodies you have there. I agree with Jennie, how do you do it on your knees, mine hurt just thinking about it. Love the bright colours of that paper.
Have a great week.

Neet said...

I just can't get over all the stuff you have on the floor Helen. There's heaps of it! So many goodies to espy.
Core paper, I really must get mine out and get using it again, I only have the small stacks but have loads of them. Thanks for the reminder.
Have a lovely week and weekend when it comes.
Hugs, Neet xx #11

TeddyBobCrafts said...

I love Core'dinations too - just got the 'whitewash' version, which is fantastic for spring/summer cards (but just realised that it would be fab for Xmas cards - pale/shimmery - too). I am joining in the general amazement at how you work on your knees (but apologies if you have a health issue that means that is the best/only way for you to craft). Ali x #17

Astrid Maclean said...

Love the aerial shot. Working on your knees hey, hm...... It looks very creative that's for sure.
Happy hopping

I thought I was addicted to spending but I think you win, so much lovely stash. Like May, if I got down there I would struggle to get up again.
Happy WOYWW

I am in awe of your stash!

craftymonki said...

Ah another crafter who works on the floor! Though generally I only do because I've trashed my desk! Those paper stacks are brilliant!

Happy WOYWW

Bella said...

I am sure you have answered this many times, but WHY do you work on the floor on your knees? That would KILL me!

Annie said...

My knees are screaming out at just the thought of working on them.
Hugs,
A x #53

Spyder said...

I can't see your 'suze' pot coz the picture won't load but! I have some of those cards, in 12x12 and really really don't want to use them coz once they're gone I'll never be able to afford more! They are lovely embossed and sanded. Have a crafty week! HaPpY WoyWw!!

Carmen said...

I just had to open up that aerial shot for a closer look. Whoa. You know, whenever Craig starts to sigh and moan about my leaving a cutting mat and some pens/sketchbook on the dinner table, I bring him to one of your WOYWW's and he shuts up for a little while. Not sure if it's shock or awe :D

Will be posting mine a bit later today. Gotta little monster to bath and entertain first. She's a wee bit hyper this morning!

Redanne said...

Wow, you really work on your knees! My new knee won't allow that but it is agreat idea to have everything surrounding you. Love that new Sizzix card/paper you have, wee bit envious of that. Anne #9

Tuire Flemming said...

Wow! Your working place really looks a place where I want to play with all that fancy stuff!
Happy WOYWW!

CraftygasheadZo said...

Oh my days, that's some scrummy stash you have there! But kneeling! Your poor knees, what we do for crafty hey?! Take care & enjoy WOYWW. Zo xx 66

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Thanks for the lovely comment, Helen - everyone's been so kind, it really does help. And Mum would have wanted me to carry on, so I am :)
That's a very 'impressive'floor you have there *grin*. My cats would have a field day!!
Hugs, LLJ #48 xx

Artyjen said...

WOW such stash! Can't begin to imagine crafting on the floor....it would not work for me (well not all the time! LOL ) but it obviously does for you :)
xoxo sioux

Bridget Larsen said...

wow what a stash you have there
Bridget #12

Neil said...

Great "desk" lots of lovely goodies to inspire. I've just got a melt pot and having seen what it can do I am so looking forward to turning it on and having a play around again!

Jackie said...

Wow, it all looks very busy.
I'm with the majority, I couldn't work on the floor either.

Julia Dunnit said...

I realise why it looks so busy now - you have a patterned rug!! Floor, desk, whatever - there's some method to the way you've got everything you use all the time at hand...
Forgive me if Im slow to come back to see the tag..but I will!

Amanda said...

Love those paper packs, bought the 12x12 last year and can't cut into it lol. Looks like you have everything in easy reach too. Hugs, Amanda #76

Glenda said...

Quite a bit going on here! How in the world do you work on the floor? I'm way too old for those shinaginans! Love the melting pot!

Miriam said...

Busy desk!!! Lovely Tim paper though - may have to get some of that myself!

Elizabeth said...

Great shot of your floor, Helen, and it must be great to be surrounded by all your favourite things like that ... couldn't get down on the floor myself, I'd need a pulley to get me back up :) Hope you have a happy and creative WOYWW. Elizabeth x #42

Gabrielle said...

I repeat... I have absolutely NO IDEA how you can work on the floor! How your knees and back don't complain I will never know! Mine would be holding a placarded protest in the street with (artful) banner proclaiming that 'All floor working must stop'!!! I love the shot of all your goodies... I could have a successful rummage in there! x

Neesie said...

What a lot you've got Misses! Wow...
but I have no idea how you can work on the floor?
Thanks for popping over to my place ;D
Have fun with WOYWW ~ Neesie #59

Annie said...

Wow !! so much stash. I know what you mean about having it around and sometimes I do end up on the floor die cutting but I do like to sit.

TFS and Happy WOYWW...........Annie :)

BJ said...

Thanks for stopping by, your distress papers look fab and the floor is rather interesting!! LOL BJ#52

Caatje said...

Oh, leave me alone with that huge stash on your floor please. I promise I won't steal everything, really I won't. (But only cause I couldn't carry it all). ;-)

Lisa-Jane said...

I didn't realise that you kneel on the floor! Doesn't that make your knees and back ache?! I couldn't do it but I do love how you have all your stuff to hand.

Darla said...

I'll take one of everything please, :)... #100

Laura said...

Love the picture of all your supplies surrounding your working space. You've got some great stuff in there -- love Ranger's archival inks -- definitely want to get more colors. Happy WOYWW from Laura #117

Joanne said...

What amazing stash. I love my Markers and use them on most projects. Being water based, they are so versatile. Happy woyww.
Hugs Joanne xx

sandee said...

First I love the tag you created, beautiful! Secondly my moth dropped open in dismay when I read that you work on the floor! wow, I am astounded as my knees, back, everything would hurt too much doing it that way, now I am curious, do you do it this intentionally or is it a space issue? waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Queen Of Toys said...

I so love your stash you have next to you what an awesome in reach supply, it makes me want to come over and play too.

Happy crafting
Eliza #19

Twiglet said...

I would love to dabble with all that stuff on your floor but I think it would knacker my knees!! Have a good week. x Jo

Jacqui said...

Its lovely seeing all your stuff ready 'to go' ... I don't know how you kneel though (I can only manage a few minutes on my knees these days!) Jacqui #137

...the yorkshire fox... said...

...gosh Helen you have an amazing amount of cool crafty stuff but not sure I could work on my knees, I have to kneel alot when seeing patients so to do it for the fun stuff i'd be a cripple!...do I spy a Big Ben Tag with the London vibe?...thanks for sharing...Mel :) #30

Angie said...

I still marvel that you kneel to work ....I find it a problem to kneel without exclaiming 'ouch ouch ouch'.
I have never seen that long coordinations pack ...good idea.
I love that tag above too.
thanks for dropping by. xx

Shoshi said...

Wow Helen, what a glorious shot of your floor! I love all the jumble of colour, all set off by the Persian rug underneath (or what you can see of it lol! This picture looks like a beautiful collage! I love the Distress Core'dinations papers too - fabulous colours, and what's more, they cut absolutely beautifully on my Cougar cutting machine! Really good quality stuff.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #95

Shoshi said...

P.S. meant to say... working on the floor is all very well, it's the getting up again that's the problem lol lol!!

Bugged Designs said...

Well that's quite a stash you have to play with there, you lucky thing! Marie #74

toni said...

Great lot of stuff you have there, first time I've visited you, I'm supposed to be doing my reports for school but just having a short break. I'm amazed that you are able to work on the floor my back and knees are not up to that. Love your tag, lots of work on it, will pop by again thanks for visiting me x toni 60

Caz said...

Wow - great pile of goodies!!!! Would love to be able to work like you do but back and knees just wouldn't let it happen!
Happy WOYWW

Helen said...

Hi Helen thanks for visiting me. I notice you have a melting pot. Tim's May tag uses one to make porcelain flowers this month. Worth a try if you haven't before. WOYWW Hugs to you from Helen 34

butlersabroad said...

I'm such a wimp. I'd never last five minutes on the floor, lol! Love that new paper, didn't know Cordinations had teamed up with Timmie!

Hugs

Tracy said...

Look at all the goodies! I wanna play!!! Happy WOYWW! (and I'll stop with all the exclamation points now. *grins*) Warmly, Tracy #88

RosA said...

WOW, I am SO envious of all those lovely goodies, even if they are on your floor! Happy WOYWW! (And that's a great tag, above.)

Scrappekatten said...

Sometimes I work on the floor myselve, especially with paints. Big space I I can do a hole lot of mess.

Di said...

I'm soooo impressed, working on the floor. If I got down there I'd never get back up again and have to lie down there constantly crafting. Err, now there's a thought :) Di xx

Kathryn said...

*deep sigh*, wow, going to get another glass of wine...
ALL THAT is on the floor!?! Oh my.
Makes me wonder about the rest of the room.
You have wonderful works of art! Glad to see your "stash" wherever it "lies" HA!
hugs!

Kathryn said...

P.S. What Persian rug???
;)

Sheilagh said...

Thanks for calling by yesterday, I am late doing the rounds, your workspace makes me feel at home, just wish I could kneel and work like you:)

Queen Lightwell said...

Like a lot of others if I got down on the floor I'd be stuck down there for hours! Probably for two reasons, of course, but anyways...that's a lovely mess you have! Its probably not a mess to you, though. I bet you know exactly where to stick your hand out for what you need without even looking, huh? :)

Anonymous said...

My desk is getting so messy, I will have no choice but to work on the floor soon.
Happy belated WOYWW

Lisa said...

I love looking at all your lovely products. I really like that stencil on top (looks like a kite to me) and the TH StampersAnonymous stamps. Hmmm off to shop...Thanks for enabling. Happy Belated WOYWW.

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

I'm having to embrace the whole working on the floor thing now, but sadly I have to clear it all away when I'm done! Love your little drawers. Thanks for stopping by and I did have a lovely day with my friend. Thankyou xx

Morti said...

Whoa! Now that's what I call an overspill! Perhaps you need a hostess trolley to put it all on, then you can wheel it about as necessary?

Thanks for stopping by...

nerllybird said...

Love the look of that TH Core'dinations - must go and have a look for Julia's comment now!

Kezzy said...

Wow I'm in heaven swooning looking at all your lovely yummy stash, just sat and enlarged photo and gazed lol, lots of Dina Wakley, Dylusion stamps and sprays, distress stains and inkpads in every colour, Fresco paints so yummy, stampers anonymous and paper artsy, I want to come and play with you LOL LOL. I have just received my Accents of Art this morning, I'm pretty new to inky stamping but really starting to fall in love with it all, don't get me wrong I have been collecting inky stamps for a few years but I just haven't used them lol. I go to artsycrafts in June so really looking forward to learning new techniques. Love all stunning tags. Great purchase of the co-ordinations, I've not seen that size before. Happy woyww, sorry I'm late this week :-) Kezzy xxx
