What's on your Workdesk Wednesday? 161

Well, here we are again! Wednesday morning... Happy July 4th to all my American friends.... So, are you ready for your Wednesday workout hopping from desk to desk?  Check in at Julia's for the launch pad..

My desk today sees me journalling with some new things I bought at the Craft Barn Extravaganza last Saturday, when I also met up with several crafty blogging twitters!!  So I suppose you want to see what I bought?  Well, I did share on Saturday but if you didn't see - here it is. Just a little shopping!!!
Hmmmmmm!!!!!!

 Also I recently got a couple of journalling magazines - thinking I may swap to one of these from Somerset Studio for a while. My Craft Stamper is also on the reading pile!
and this is the latest journal page I've been playing with! I'll do a proper post with some more details of this page later, when it's finished!



Anyone going to Artstamps Newbury on Saturday? I must remember my WOYWW badge!! I MAY try not to buy too much more stash... possibly!

In the meantime, have a great week - happy desk hopping!

Oh I was there too Helen. Shame I didn't meet you. I had my badge on and also a "BJ" badge but didn't see anyone with a WOYWW badge on there. Awww such a shame, must remember to mail you when I'm going down there again, perhaps you could do likewise and we could finally meet up. I see you got a big "H" they had a little "B" but not a "J" so I didn't get any. Looks like you might have stayed a while at Neil's table! and the PaperArtsy was cool too wasn't it. I was out 7 hours in total! Ohh like the look of the Journalling mags, not something I have seen in a shop ever, unless you know likewise. BJ#18

H for Helen! I have a K but haven't done anything with it yet. It's somewhere in my craft closet..... tee hee

Lots of nice goodies there - and I love looking through magazines! Have fun.

The journal page looks amazing, by the way.

Happy WOYWW

Helen, I think I know who I want to go shopping with from now on. Wow. Love the stamps and can't wait to see you use them.

I have to agree with Joynana, I tend to pick the Journaling magazines up in the store and put them back because I am not sure where to begin. But the pages are so beautiful.

Thanks for sharing. I am wiping the drool right now.

Lots of yummy scrummy goodies you got there. I did think about going last week but I cant drive far at the moment but judging by the fun that was had by all will have to keep an eye out for the next one. Hugs, Amanda *56

TeddyBobCrafts said...

My sort of shopping trip! Wish I lived closer to these crafty events, but then I would spend even more money on stash! Your journal pages are gorgeous. Ali x #71

I can't leave the craft barn without at least one papier mache item..and as I'm not a natural alterer, it's a bit weird, huh! Like the new word stamps there...oh my word you would be a bad influence, probably as well that I can't meet up at Newbury!

Rita said...

Glad you enjoyed yourday at the Craft Barn. Your goodies look super and I love those stamps. Hope you have fun playing to-day. Hugs Rita xxx

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Must put the Craft Barn on my to-visit list. And also off to check out those magazine titles. The Journaling on looks mighty interesting :)

They say a change is as good as a rest and I guess that can apply to mag subscriptions too. I often find they become very ‘samie’ after a while so a change can only be a good thing to boost your mojo.
Looks like you had a successful shop Helen….all those lovely new toys to play with!

Happy Crafting!

I think you should become a Personal Shopper - you have a genuine talent there!! Lol. Is Newbury prepared for the WOYWW onslaught, I wonder?? I'm not going because I'm in Gloucester all day at a brass band festival!!

Ann B said...

I have a Somerset Studio sub and am thinking of changing to Art Journaling when it runs out in September, think it would be more 'me'.
Beautiful journal pages, colours are perfect.

Glad you enjoyed your day out to the Craft Barn - I have only been able to visit them on line - maybe we'll have to plan our holidays to that part of the UK next year!

sandra de said...

Please tell me what you think of the Art Journal mag, I am sure it features Kate Crane and I love her work. Not sure if I want to order the mag just for that article. Your collection of mags look wonderful and your art journal pages is wonderful. Love all the goodies you bought, I have just ordered a "chicken wire" stamp funny how we all tune in on the same things no matter how far away we live.

Redanne said...

Your journal pages are looking really good and love all your new stash, especially the chicken wire stamp and Dyan's too. Hope you have lots of fun with them all! Happy WOYWW, Anne x #49

Stephanie-Emma said...

Hi Helen!

You, Gabrielle, Zoe and Sandra have inspired me to get involved with this WOYWW stuff!! first time today! (I'm number 108 I think I have to say that?!)

Have a great day xxx

Eliza said...

I love your journal pages, just perfect and those supplies you have are devine, I only wish I had them too. I do hope you get to meet up with other WOYWW'ers and have heaps of fun.

Thanks for popping by my blog.

Shoshi said...

Oooh Helen, your journal pages and your new stash are just juicy fabulous!!! It's so great getting new stuff, isn't it. In the post this a.m. (too late to put on my WOYWW post which was already up) I got some wonderful new stash which I'll post about soon - including the whole set of Dylusions spray inks - after several months of seeing what people do with them and suffering a severe case of Ink Envy, I have succumbed! Have fun with your new stuff!

Thanks for your lovely comment - definitely feeling better this week and keen to get on with lots of things!

Happy WOYWW,

mark gould said...

Happy woyww and thanks for stopping by, looks like you had a good shopping spree at the barn. It was my first extravaganza and wow kind of sums it up.
look forward to seeing what you do with your goodies, mark

Minxy said...

Sorry i'm late, don't know where yesterday went, why am i not surprised to see a pile of goodies on your desk, soon you will have no room for yourself in your home as it will just be full of stash!

nerllybird said...

I was at the Craft Barn, not allowing myself to spend too much....or so I thought, lol! Love your journal pages - I have the smaller version of that stamp :D

Peggy Cain said...

love your journal pages looking forward to the details on how you created it. Too funny I'm lookin at some new books too in fact the Stampington and Co Art Journaling one is at the top of my list I think I might just get a "prescription" that's what I call my subscriptions because I need them to survive LOL have a great day

butlersabroad said...

I don't think I'd dare go shopping with you, you're quite the enabler! I'd probably end up pawning my plane ticket back home and would have to stay with you! On second thoughts that wouldn't be too bad, I could play with all your stash while you were at work!!! I need my desk to be tidyish in order to be happy creating, if it's too messy then my mind is messy too and I can't get anything done!

Hugs

Princess Judy Palmer said...

You got some great new stamps and stash there. I think a magazine change is a good thing from time to time so definitely consider it. Fun new journal pages.

peggy aplSEEDS said...

the thought of bumping into someone with a WOYWW badge sounds so exciting! of course, i could just go next door and tell my sister Patsy to wear hers, but shucks, it's just not the same! belated happy WOYWW!
thanks for sharing!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Helen, lots of lovely new stash - I like the look of some of those stamps, especially the honeycomb one. All those fascinating and interesting magazines would mean I wouldn't be crafting, or doing anything else either, for some considerable time? Hope you have a lovely weekend and enjoy the show. Elizabeth x #85

Neesie said...

I'm late visiting this week so I guess I missed Artstamps, Newbury...but then to travel 12,000 miles would have been a little bit of a push! ;D
I think you're going to have masses of fun with all your stash.
Have a great productive week ~ Neesie #29
