WOYWW 203

Dear friends and bloggers, welcome, whether you find your way here anyhow, or from Julia's gaff at the Stamping-Ground for your weekly fix of desk nosing...Julia will explain all about WOYWW, if you don't know by now...(where have you been?)

You (kind of) find me mid-tag here although actually that's a bit of a cheat cos I made it yesterday...!!

also, there's a new stool at the PC too - but although I've been able to lift the screen to a decent level (not yet high enough) the keyboard is too low - when I saw the stool I thought it would be a perfect height but it may not work - I need to raise the keyboard too... I will be getting neck-ache!! so it could be back to crouching on the low-level stool from before!
Ah well....
so, the desk shots... you may spy some anniversary atc's too... hiding!! but at least I have some ready! phew....


I'd never used this mini webbing stencil - but it looks fab for the butterfly, don't you think?  (Cherry Pie Dylusion spray before you ask...)
ooh look, another 'staged' shot... tee hee - there's those atc's again...they're getting around aren't they!

You'll be able to see the finished tag in Tuesday's post!! (It was for a challenge)

First, thanks for stopping by earlier today and leaving such a sweet message. I would have been here sooner, but I've been very busy all day and just decided to join WOYWW at the last minute.

I love that webbing stencil on the butterfly. It is to die for. You find the neatest tools!!

Happy WOYWW from #7.

You have been busy Helen!! The ATC's that are moving around your desk are looking great! I have that same stencil and have just used it on an art journal page for my next class!! Isn't the Cherry Pie Dylusion Ink just delish?! I now have all the range and some spares hehe! Your desk area looks like there is just enough room for you to squeeze in, so many wonderful things to look at. Happy WOYWW,

Love your crafty space, Helen, and whilst there is so much stash it is obvious that you are well organised with everything to hand. The tag is super and I have a spray can that makes a similar effect..... must get it out and try it again.

Almo said...

Great webbed butterfly tag Helen, I wasnt going to ask about the colour, I was going to ask about the stencil who's is it? I must have it!. I used to have the same problem with a low table and got my DH to put blocks under the legs - it may work. Thans for your visit earlier Hugs Mo x #29

sara j said...

You're so funny with your ATC's. I've be making a lot of them lately too and really enjoying them. Some are complex, some have been really simple-but they are all fun. I down right love the Butterfly, both the color and the way the stencil worked...smiling now since I have a similar stencil I could try out....life is good. Hope you have a good week!

thanks for sharing

Kelly said...

Love that web stencil. Can't wait to see the finished tag! Stools for our desks are trial and error. I'm on my 4th one. We'll see how it works when I finally get the cushion made ths week. Blessings!
Kelly #123

VonnyK said...

That webbing stencil is fabulous, such a great effect. Shame about your stool, I use a gas lift chair as I'm short and everyone else is taller, so it goes up and down depending on who is sitting there. Hope you manage to get something that is just right.
Have a great week.

Gosh, that is a busy desk-area! Good to hear you've graduated from the floor to a stool - or is that only for typing?! Lovely web stencil. Hope you're well - time constraints mean I’m Weekend-WOYWW-ing, but hope you’ve had a good one! Deb # 125
