WOYWW 206?

So, here we are. Another week closer to the WOYWW Crop... better start thinking about what I want to take to "play" with this time... I think it will have to be the journal... certainly not going to be Christmas cards like it was in October!!   Julia has all the info here both for today's desk link ups and the Crop and the ATC swap (what do you mean you still haven't done one, hehehe!)  I only have 5...will decide nearer the time how I'm going to "distribute" the spares!!

But today, it's desk time... well I have a journal page drying (see Tuesday's post for the full details)
what a mess...
and this is the pile next to where I perch at the computer (the higher stool I showed you a couple of weeks ago went straight away, it was totally the wrong height) of my recent projects, all piled up in a muddle - must get some of them displayed!  Under the Moleskine notebooks (a recent buy) may be a sneaky peak of today's tag for the DragonsDream tag due to be posted later... tee hee..

and I know how you like to see what I've been splurging on (and I have splurged lately!) well this has mostly come since last Wednesday... oops! Have used lots of it already too, so that's good!

anyhow, this is too long for 'short and sweet' so I'd better go.. I have the day off (waiting for a new phone) so will get to lots of you, hopefully!

You have the best tools and products around. I swear you could start your own studio or craft store. Always enjoy visiting here. I find so many wonderful things I can only hope to have one day.

Sorry, no number yet. Like you, I'm waiting on Julia to wake (grin).

Neil said...

Ooooh, lots of lovely new goodies I see. I always enjoy popping by and would love to rummage! I must look for those rub ons, though I have some others that I could use I guess..... but they are not Tim's! Hope you have a great day.

BJ said...

Ah - day off, which explains your lateness today - LOL. I have the dentist which is why I can't sleep! Perhaps I ought to pop round to see your sprawl in person - LOL. Loving the blue on your journal and tag and the city template is on my list now - LOL BJ (pipped at the post by Neil) #2

The new stash looks just like the sort of things I need!!! The journal looks great. Happy WOYWW. Pam#15

Belinda Basson said...

I might have to succumb to on line shopping as the Tim rub ons have not yet landed in Sunny South Africa! Like those clear stamps too! Hope you get your phone early today so you can play with it and get used to it! #23

Alison Wade said...

Happy WOYWW. I agree with another commenter - you could certainly open your own craft shop, but I know that you could not bear to part from any of your stash. Ali x #28

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Hey Helen...guess what?? I did my very first stamping this week! Julia very kindly let me use her stash to make some ATCs (I'm just not going to have the time to sew any...) it was great fun and I really enjoyed myself. But that's as far as it goes...too many other crafty things to do at the moment!
And if you enjoy all your new stash, then yu go right ahead!!
Hugs, LLJ 29 xx

Andrea said...

Julia Dunnit said...

OOOH those new sentiment stamps are delish. I've just culled mine and am looking for replacements! So how do you display stuff, it's a bit of a problem here....
And yep,you'd beter get packing - we've only got a couple weeks to go!

Annie said...

So much new stash but it's good to hear you've already used most of it :-) Have a fun week.

Eliza said...

I always seem to be able to ooohhhh and aaaahhh over your goodies you have the best of everything and constantly new stuff arriving daily it seems, you will find the right stool, or highchair one day when the time is right. I laugh at that by the way highchairs are used for small Children here in Austalia.

Happy WOYWW

Helen, love the stash! I have a lot of Crafters Workshop stencils too and I am after Dyan's stamps as well. You have a wonderful craft desk and my eyes keep travelling around to look at all the great things you have :-). I always enjoy visiting your desk. Happy WOYWW.

Your splurges are worthy though, looks fab, looking forward to having a nose at your journal at the crop. I will be bringing colouring I think! Take care Zo xx 75

A good splurge is mandatory to keep our creativeness going. Looking forward to seeing the new DD challenge tag.

Thanks for visiting the bears already.

ANNETTE HUSBAND said...

scrappystickyinkymess said...

{sigh} Yet another tempting shopping reveal, as well as a lovely project. I'm looking forward to the crop too, but no idea what to bring. I get so wrapped up in the visiting and the chatting, last time it was almost a waste to try to do something. I'll bet it will be something simple, small and fast.....

Happy WOYWW!

Have fun at the Crop.

Thanks for visiting.

butlersabroad said...

Ha, my entire desk is one giant splurge this week, as is usually the case when I return from England! I like the LO's on show and agree, you should do something with them if possible. Shame the crop and my visit didn't occur at the same time, it would have been fantastic to see more people. Have fun though.

Hugs

Lisa-Jane said...

I have been advised to try art journalling as a therapy so I will be back to look at your stuff again!

Hettie said...

Helen!!! How on earth do you remember what you have and where?!! I am not in any way shape nor form an OCD sufferer but I do have a "system" of sorts! You remind me of my former boss and that is no compliment!!
Tee Hee! You must have some system or else you would not turn out nice stuff though!
See you very soon. Shall we swap there to save stamps?
Hugs

Morti said...

LOL

You've made me scratch my head at what I'm actually going to do at the big Crop next month..... decisions, decisions!

tangledpen said...

Di said...

Hi Helen! I do love coming to visit you - each week on WOYWW I almost expect to just see a pair of feet peeking out from under a slipped mountain of craft goodies!! As has already been said, you could open your own store!

Yup, I guess I will enjoy the reunion but will miss seeing you gals at the Crop! :(

Hugs and happy WOYWW! Di xx

You always seem so busy when we call in - moleskin journals sound fun but it's not real mole..... no of course - only joking!! x Jo

Caro said...

Looking at your desk makes me want to come and play! I love your journals and recent projects. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#61)

Almo said...

Hi Helen, Glad to see someone else has had a splurge. It feels so good, and your goodies are scrummy. My favourite is the cityscape mask, must get this. I am afraid the suspense of sneaky peeks was to much for me and I had to go ahead and have a nosey at your next post to see the tag, brilliant flying bulbloon! and the townscape - love it. Hugs Mo x

Elizabeth said...

Hi Helen, as usual your floor space is heaving with creativity - love the Moleskine book and all those lovely goodies you've treated yourself to - splurging may be bad for your bank balance but it's good for you :) Hope you have a great week. Elizabeth x #36

Darnell J Knauss said...

What wonderful splurges you have made. I was chatting with a friend the other day and we were congratulating ourselves at what good shoppers we were - we always get the right thing! Those Dylusions dress stamps look like so much fun. Heck, everything looks good on your desk. Hope you have a great week - sorry I'm a bit late this week. Sara j #46

If I want to know what is new I know I can rely on Helen's desk to show me. Love your new stash and your other shots.
Sorry I am late, been away and since coming back am suffering with hay fever which has meant eyes almost closed.
Hugs, Neet xx
