WOYWW 221

Welcome to another desk fest... It's time for WOYWW .  Thanks for your comments last week - and apologies for not making it to as many of you as I wanted...

It was suggested that I should a) open some of my drawers (oo-err!) and b) give you a view from the ceiling.. well a) I can manage, b) is a bit more tricky - but I have balanced on sofa and chair arms for you...

this from the chair arm under the window (the view you had last week I think actually)  Shame about the flash on my dolphin picture!


 some of the drawers, opened as requested.the wooden ones all have stamps in, and yes, they are double stacked and the cardboard ones (like the green one here) are ink pads, and other similar stuff (there are loads of them around the room!)
Standing on the sofa arm in the doorway.
and the "desk" itself... my new Wendy Vecchi archival inks which arrived at the weekend or last Friday, they are lush colours.

So, that's me today. what have you been up to? I'll try and visit as many of you as I can before work tomorrow (oops, I mean today!) and later on too...

Talk about a fun fest. This was a really great look at your most impressive stash. I had no idea they even HAD that many different types of stamp pads. Like I've said before, I would LOVE to come craft with you, if only for ONE day. You could teach me SO much!!

Obviously, no number yet, but happy WOYWW, anyway.

Those Archival pads are on the list for when I start buying again. Promised myself not to get any new stuff until after the summer but finding it increasingly difficult to keep the promise. Need the new dinky Stazon pads as well.
Your 'desk' always makes me smile, how do you remember which stamp is where, or are you like me and have to tip the whole lot out to find the one you want?

Neet said...

Blimey Helen, I thought I had a lot of stuff but I think you beat me here. Do you have a system for cataloguing what stamps you have? Mine has gone to pot recently but the thought of starting again ...
Just enjoy - especially your new pads.
Hugs, Neet 25 xx (thanks for visiting me - I was asleep)

Neesie said...

Oh Lordy...that's a lot of stuff Helen!
I love all those drawers. They look fantastic but I doubt I could fill that many myself. Well it would be a challenge I suppose.
I'm looking for what kind of storage to put in my new room so thanks for a peek!
Enjoy WOYWW Neesie #45

Sarah said...

I haven't been for quite a while but I know that crafty zone and still don't know how you craft sitting down...or can find anything! Looks wonderfully packed though! H... Queen of Stash!

Oh, my word... I feel better about my spreading stash now. The inks look fabulous - I ordered three of them, but suspect the others won't be far behind!

Winnie said...

Love all your fun drawers! A crafters dream! I want those INKS! I have so many of the archival, but now I do want to add Wendy's colors to my collection, they look fab! Enjoy the week! Winnie#84

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I'm impressed that you did all that random furniture balancing and didn't break any bones or your face. Or if you did you've kept it a secret from us. You have so much stuff stashed in your room. It would be fun to have a sneaky poke through it all. I'm sure you have lots of treasures in there.

VonnyK said...

Oh my goodness, can I move in?? I could spend years in there just finding things to play with. I would love to have been a fly on the wall to see you up on the couch arm taking the photos :) That has to be the most impressive room I've seen.
Have a great week.

Sandy said...

Oh Helen - you've got it bad honey. I am going to have to show this to my husband because he thinks I am off the deep end.

Danie May said...

I am still in awe of all your stash, some might say you've got it bad.... say you've got it good...lol. Loving the look of your new color inks. Have a great week! Danie #62

Roberta B said...

Hello, I am sending this to everyone. Im sorry I am not going to be able to get to all the desk and I have now lost my sheet of paper that I was writing them down on. I don't think my cat is going to make it through the night to even see the vet. She is old just like my dog so I guess they are going to get sick at the same time or so. I just going to copy and paste and sorry to every one that I didn't get to read.. I just cant do it right now. Thank you Roberta 40 and bright blessings to all.

voodoo vixen said...

Fantastic Grand Tour there- I can picture you balancing in various precarious positions to get those shots. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #56 xx

Brilliant tour I love all the drawers especially the wider ones at the bottom. As for those new archival colours....they are SO lovely.

Darnell J Knauss said...

I didn't play, Helen, so you don't need to visit considering all the other visits you have, but I just had to comment when I saw your post: My! Oh, my! My, oh my!! Have a great week! Darnell

Carmen said...

I love it when you posts shots around your room like this as I show Craig and after going a deathly shade of white he leaves me alone for a couple of days about how cluttered my desk is :D :D Thanks Helen!
