WOYWW 275 - playing

Hello again, thanks for all the lovely comments last week.  It's time for another WOYWW (What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday)

You catch me mid journal page (well actually it's finished now and blogged too, scroll down if you have time)
all neutral shades and textures.
the page on the right is from when I was away at Lin Brown's - this is silk screen printing, I just haven't done anything with it yet.
Recently had to spread out my Paperartsy stamps into a third box..(to the right of the blue one)
and another arial shot.

I'll be round to see what you've been up to, as soon as I can.

Wow so much to see and of course loads of it I have, your definitely a Paperartsy girl, I thought I had a lot of their stamps but you beat me especially as you have lots of the older ones as well. I love how you store them, I'm in the middle of having to make more room for their stamps. I'm in the middle of a huge craft room sorting and boxing. I have huge sinus problems, a lot of damage mostly from 16 operations onmy nose as a kid. This has left me with suffering facial migraines. I am allergic to dust and dust mites and the doctor said to help relieve the sinus pain I need to keep dust to a minimum, so trying to box everything or have them under shelves. This is becoming a nightmare in the craft room, it's taking me ages. But one thing is for sure my Fresco paints are beside me at all times lol. I have also spied some yummy cheesecake, which looks as yummy as all the crafty stash around you. Happy Woyww :-) Kezzy xxx

And in all you show us, I spot with my eagle eye...the yummy looking cheese cake with berry topping in the top RH corner of the last pic...

My word, but you have a LOT of stamps. I do too come to think of it, but they are hidden in the drawers above me. You are so organised to keep them in their "house" I have mine in subjects. Funny how we all catalog our stuff differently. #17

I would LOVE to come over and play at your desk! So much fun stuff! Did scroll to previous post and love the journal page. I always think "color' but I like the calming affect of the earth tones. Inspiring page! diane #16

Neet said...

I thought I had a lot of PaperArtsy Stamps but you certainly beat me - I have three boxes but they are not as big as yours. Wow!
Like the look of your screen print, I am sure you can't wait to do more of those beauties.
Thanks for your visit earlier Helen, I have just woken up.
Hugs, Neet 35 xx

Chrysalis said...

What a lovely, busy desk, Neet. It's a good problem to have, having to spread your kit out into other containers. Happy WOYWW, Chris # 34

The journal pages are looking good! You've had fun creating that, haven't you? I knew you were a Paperartsy fan but 3 boxes is some going!! Have you used them all?!
Hugs, LLJ 30 xx

Lots to look at here, Helen, and lovely journal page there. What a great deal you pack into a small space. But, do tell - don't you get cramp kneeling on the floor all the time you are crafting? I can't even manage to curl up on the settee these days without my leg going dead!
Take care. God bless.

Hazel said...

So many lovely things to play with. Thanks for sharing your workspace today. Hope you have a great day and a lovely crafting week to come. Hazel, WOYWW #45 x


G'day there Helen. Just dropping by for WOYWW. I haven't played for a few months but remembered today. Wow your floor robe always makes me smile LOL...I wish I could sit on the floor with you creating. Love the journal page too.

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Lovely and messy - you are in fact VERY organized, don't try to say you aren't. I can see it clearly. The fact you still have the sleeves for your stamps makes you more organized that me :) I regret being so quick to bin the packaging on some things - stamp sleeves is one thing, and the little pouched my cabled needles came in, with the size of them, is another.

Oh and learn from WOYWW mates :)

Happy WOYWW!

Carole said...

You sure do have a lot going many stamps and supplies...ready to play all day. Be well ~ Carole #71

Kelly said...

Love the color tones on that page. And cheesecake.. hadn't been for Kezzy, I'd have missed that! LOL I must be slipping.

De-cluttering seems to be going around. If you can box things (and label!) then you just need to dust the boxes, not the individual items, which sounds like your plan.
Creative Blessings! Kelly #67

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh how I love it when there's a need for expanded storage!! i think you may very well be completely up to date with the PA catalogue!! Xx said...

So much going on here! I'm always so happy to get to come for a visit!

Eliza said...

I think you really are a paperartzy girl and moving into the next storage goes with the flow of always getting more toys. I want to know what is in the bottom draw on the left side LOL

Love your floor space.

Lin said...

lol..that second piccie looks all neat and organised..then the bottom one is stuff all over the place!! I still don't know how you craft kneeling on the floor!!xx

Kyla said...

I see you are busy as usual! Love your blue tag in the later post.
Your review of the poppies in London has inspired me to go and visit before they go so I hope to get there in the next couple of weeks-thanks for the inspiration

Elizabeth said...

You don't like Paperartsy stamps then :) Should you ever tire of any,as if that's at all likely, just send them on up my way ... I'm sure I could find a blue box to store them in too :) :) Hope your weekend is going well. Elizabeth x #78
