WOYWW 274 - September?!

Hi, deskers... welcome to another new month.... (really?!!) and time for WOYWW again... You'll be surprised to see that I've been shopping again!!

 Some colour bloom sprays, the new JoFY paints and Darcy stamps... this purchase was delivered to me at work yesterday -  and the Dylusions clear ones are a blog comment prize from Art from the Heart (yes, another win, can't believe how lucky I've been lately - this was from a couple of months ago but there was a delay sending it as my email went astray)
so I had to try out the new JoFY paints - the right hand side is the turquoise - it's fabulous isn't it!

the page on the left I started yesterday, (Monday lol!) and will show fully in a post soon.

I'll be round to catch as many of your desks as soon as I can.

Neet said...

Well done on your win Helen, again! No sarcasm there, just nice to see someone like you having so much luck. (I still want to rub shoulders with you LOL)
Yes, that paint looks nice are those poppies? My favourite flowers.
Have a lovely week.
Hugs, Neet (think it was 16) xxx

Hi I'm back and am really enjoying the adventure of setting up my new creative space in our new home. I've really missed catching up with all my blogging friends but hopefully over the next day or so I will pay you all a visit.
I really love seeing your new purchases and what you do with them....I love that gorgeous turquoise.

Hi neighbor,
I'd love to see that flower journal page with a poem on it!
I never seem to get my head around sprays- I think i'm too controlling!

Hi H
goodness you have been lucky recently, love those stamps but don't have any ... been intending to make some in a similar style with my stamp maker.... but ... well you know , the time thing!
I wanted to ask you what you think are a good buy paints wise?... was thinking of the Tim Holtz ones but the pots are so small....I am currently using the Artist acylics but they are a bit limited technique wise I think.

New stash?? Helen, I wonder how you keep tabs on it all?? my trouble is forget what I have, Shaz in Oz.x #33

I did say you were lucky But then I guess you do visit and comment a lot and you have to be "in it to win it" LOL! As usual I love your shopping choices. But as I am clearing and de-cluttering I really can't justify spending money when I don't know if I will have the space. As it is I am becoming reaquainted with old stash that hasn't seen the light of day for YEARS and at the very least I need to use that first! what I need is a project that uses 3 years of Craft Stamper freebie cover stamps LOL!

Happy WOYWW!

Shoshi said...

Lovely new stash, Helen, and I love what you've done with it! I've had a look at your next post too, and the texture through the stencil is fabulous. Great colours too.

Thanks for your visit, and I'm glad you like my new-look office! After having a bit of a clear out, I am glad my big chair now (just) fits in the office - I was on the point of getting rid of it! I love the look of the new rug in there which co-ordinates so well with everything. This sort of thing gives one a real lift, doesn't it!!

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #40

Amy E said...

WOW! I see I'm not the only one who went shopping and got new goodies to play with this week!! At least you've actually started playing with yours! I've been so busy that I haven't had a chance to take a single new thing out of it's package yet :( Oh well...that's what the weekend is for!

Happy (late) WOYWW!
