WOYWW 217 - it's nearly August!!

Happy Wednesday, welcome back for another round of desk hopping, thanks to the lovely Julia at the Stamping Ground

I know I say this every week lately, but there isn't a great deal going on here at present - let me show you!
A blog prize from Paperartsy (the Jo FirthYoung stamps) and some of the thin flexi blocks which I've been meaning to try for ages. Will report back soon if they really do make you stamp better!

The Memory Box poppy die is there to remind me I think I'm going to use this for an impending DT piece I need to get done sooner rather than later.... and anything else is just the normal detritus of my floor space!!

It's going to be mega busy at work today so I am not sure how many of your spaces I will get to visit - I will do my best!

I think this is probably the shortest ever post for WOYWW - Julia will be pleased with me!!

If those flexi blocks can help ME stamp better, I'll buy them (grin). Personally, I think it's going to take more than that for me. I look forward to your review.

Hey, I was the world's worst last week, so I understand if you can't make it around to see me.

I really like the idea of the flexi blocks. I can't wait to hear if they work. Happy crafting.

Krisha said...

I've never heard of Flexi blocks. So I'll be curious to read what you have to say about them. I totally get when life gets busy. No need to apologize. Have a great week. (((HUGS)))

makes a note of 'flexi blocks' as not a clue, sounds like something my Mum would like (she's a card maker).

All looks good on your desk to me.

Lovely goodies on your desk Helen - and I like the thinner blocks but only use them for the BIG stamps. Congrats on your win and commiserations that you are so busy at work. Still one has to work to pay for the goodies.

You know i am going to have to google flexi blocks now, don't you? LOL
Hope things settle into a slower pace soon, ts still early days. Annette #1 for the first time in 4 years!

VonnyK said...

I can never get a regular block to print all of the stamp so maybe a flexi block might be the answer for me. Will wait and see how a pro like you gets on with it first. Congrats on your win.
Have a great week.
