WOYWW - February Craft Club table..

Hello, and happy Wednesday (or possibly not depending on where you are and when you visit..) Time for another desk fest courtesy of Julia's Stamping-Ground

Tuesday night, being the first Tuesday in the month, was craft club - and journalling month!  I took a little bag full of stuff - it weighed a ton taking it on the bus... do you think I had enough?
 the ruck sack was full to the brim, and the pizza box held some stencils and my scrap book pages as the girls wanted to see them in the flesh.

Eagle eyed peeps may spot a set of stamps on the box too - a random blog prize from Paperartsy after one of their challenges (one of my scrapbook pages) last week - can't wait to try these!
 spread out well at club... ha ha!! more space than I'm used to though..  and I introduced my sister in law to the joys of grunge paste - she loves it!   I was lucky too as she gave me a lift home - very grateful as it was pouring with rain and very windy by the time we left!
and this was the page I created. - although I have added some black circles to it since, and obviously didn't take another picture!

Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday, I'll let you catch up with more desks now.

BJ said...

Super pages Helen, sorry I didn't come now. Didn't realise you'd be there and demonstrating too. Not as if I did my WOYWW past either! Rather tied as not sleeping well despite lots of exercise! Carpal tunnel is rather annoying too. Maybe next month BJ#??

Claire said...

Wish we had a craft club! Love your pages :)
Lovely to catch up with you again - it's been a while!

Congratulations on the win Helen and no you didn't have enough in that bag, well not if you are anything like mr. I take a trolley to our craft club and I always, always 'need' something that I left at home.
Love that yellow on your journal page, it zings.
Happy Wednesday.

Even better in the bigger view. So bright and sunny, after a morning of HAIL here - this really lifted my mood. I struggle with when to stop - I do love it and wonder if there will be more added? I'd ether stop and miss a chance to make it even more complex, or carry on adding and mess the whole thing up LOL! But then that;'s me - you are more sensible, I bet :)
Getting an early start for a change....
Happy WOYWW Day!

Lynne said...

Just got to get some grunge paste now!!!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Grunge paste sounds like something you use to clean teenagers!!! In which case, I'll have two big buckets full please ;-)
And it's only right that you spread out....if only to unload your rucksack!!
Hugs, LLJ 33 xx

BJ said...

Just looking on the big computer and GOSH that bag must have been heavy, glad you got a lift home. I went to pack my heat tool last night and cables together to make switching them easier but NOT taking them anywhere. I think that was the point I sat down and decided NOT of go. Have done a bit of crafting this morning though BJ#73

Carole said...

I want to learn more about grunge paint. Your page looks fabulous.How fun to craft with a club. Carole #76

Glenda Brooks said...

I wish there was a group to play with in my area. If there is I have never heard of it. Maybe I should see about starting one of my own!

Hi Helen, love that Paperartsy words set, that may just have to go on my wish list! Journal pages are brilliant, love how bright it is. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #42 xx

MaggieC said...

Lots of things to see on your desk this week. You are lucky to have a craft club in your area. We seem to be a craft free zone in this area. Thank you for your visit. I have almost finished sorting my stamps, just ready to move on to the next pile of stuff that needs reorganising. Have a good week. xx Maggie #3

Oh, my, Helen, how did you manage that on the bus? Thank goodness you had a lift home! I don't have a car either and it can be difficult when it comes to carrying stuff from place to place. I love the warm yellow of the journal page; it looks like Yellow Submarine - is it?! Have I just done a Sam and not read what you said? Love that Lynne Perrella stamp too! I don't know when I'm going to have time for WOYWW place next. I really miss it, but I try to pop in and see old friends. Life's been a bit busy, but I hope to have some more playtime soon! Julie Ann xx

Gorgeous page, I'm glad you enjoyed your evening.

Deborah Wainwright said...

Haha I thought I took a lot away on hols in September. But I guess you have to have enough to play with otherwise it's not the same. Glad u got to have some fun especially after the effort of getting it therexx

sandysewin said...

Wow, looks like you had a great time at craft club! Hope to see the finished journaling page some time.

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and for the nice comments.

Happy Woyww,

More new stash to play with!! and what a great job you did, love the page. I think I need a few days at home to get on with some of the ideas in my head, never seem to get any craft time lately. Happy WOYWW, Cindy #97

Shoshi said...

Always lovely to have new stash, Helen. Your journal page is absolutely beautiful.

Happy WOYWW,

VonnyK said...

That is a huge amount of stuff to take on a bus, so good of your sister in law to give you a lift. I take half the house with me when I go to art classes so I understand the need for a big bag. Love your page, so bright.
Have a great week,
Von #30

Neet said...

Brilliant idea to use a rucksack when travelling by public transport. Glad you got a lift home though as i believe the weather has been terrible.
Well, I set off later today for home so will witness it first hand shortly.
Thanks for the visit earlier.
Hugs, Neet xx 22

Carmen said...

Glad you got the lift home - this weather is horrible :(

Social crafting is quite an operation, isn't it?! I'd have trouble deciding what to take...

Loving those sunshine pages with all that fabulous tissue tape text.

Lovely bright colours in your journal Helen, cheer you up on a dreary day! Is it ever going to stop raining in the UK??!

Hugs

Lucky YOU. I never win anything. Those stamps are super. And of course, I like the pages you made in your journal, too.

Thanks for dropping by my snowy place already. I usually beat you with a visit, but not this week. Now I'm trying to catch up, although I've already been here once today. Not sure why I didn't just scroll down. Happy very belated WOYWW from #1.
