WOYWW 276 - not a lot to see..

So here we are. Wednesday again already! This week's desk fest - well mine anyhow - is a little bare. and a little staged...
but it's as the result of a request!

Someone suggested a while ago, I should line up my journals (that I'd referred to as being like Goldilocks) so you could get an idea of the size... so here they are. With a 12 inch ruler for scale.

But that's quite a boring workspace to share and makes for a very very short post... so what else can I share? hmmm.

a bit of a show and shame photo - you can just make out the back of the chair under the pile of crafty goodies... all sorts on that chair (there is a box holding it all, honest!  the pile is getting higher and higher..

at the front, the blue box contains all manner of things - some sprays that don't see the light of day these days - buttons, flowers, all kinds.. and under that is another of the same boxes with more stamps in...

Maybe one week I'll open the lid for you. On the box, to the right is my pile of "made things" - tags mostly, for the Dragons Dream DT that I'm on - and to the left, another box with little bits in - Prima stuff mostly..
so that's me this week... hope you've had a good look round. Next week, there will undoubtedly, be new stuff to show, as this weekend sees the stamp show at Alexandra Palace (Ally Pally to it's friends) so........  Have a good week. and happy desking! Here's the link in case you need it!

Morning, what a marvellous pile of goodies, and there is no shame in having stash like that, we all have stuff like that somewhere. Think of the fun and inspiration you are going have sorting through it one boring day.
Have a fantastic time at Ally Pally buying essential stuff to add to your stash and show and tell next week.

ah the things we hide and then see the light of day.
... that is a serious collection indeed but guess if laid mine in small area like that it would be the same.. unless of course there are more piles??

RosA said...

Ha, ha, you can't scare me with that pile of stash :) I'm sure lots of us could match, or dare I say, surpass it? :)

Neet said...

That is one heck of a BIG Journal Helen (on the left).

Cannot believe you got all that stuff on one chair - must be a big chair. Don't we all have stuff in places where we have forgotten where it is, think of the treasures you could unearth.
Have a great day!
Hugs, Neet (was I 24 - doesn't matter you have called already) xxx

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Helen, rofl at your stash mountain! Bit of a contrast to the 'desk with journals'- that makes it sound like an Old Master, lol. Thanks for all the good wishes, they really worked! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #26 xx

Bridget Larsen said...

Your desk is too neat - as you said, but that box of goodies is very interesting and makes me want to go to the studio and play...
Thanks for visiting and leaving a nice comment!

I confess to wanting to come and dig into that armchair, Helen. It looks wonderfully yummy! I'm sure there are things there that one day you will say "Goodness, I need that NOW!" Just needs a rainy day with nothing else to do... no harm in wishing...
Thanks for visiting, and so glad you managed to comment actually on the page. Obviously there were gremlins last week! Thank you for the compliment - we aim to please, as they say.
Take care. God bless.

Tertia said...

So glad to see another great pyramid builder. I am so good at it, it actually scares me sometimes. LOL I put one thing down and the next thing I know, it has evolved into a full size pyramid that threatens to topple over and become a weapon of mass destruction.
Happy WOYWW!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Helen, I'd love to come and dig around in all those boxes ... bet I'd find some real gems in there. Look forward to seeing what you succumb to at the Ally Pally next week. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #62

Twiglet said...

I'm with Elizabeth - we could have fun rumaging round in those boxes! x Jo

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

You redefine the meaning of stash!Looks more like a treasure chest! #64

Chrysalis said...

Ditto the last two comments! I bet you know what's where though, eh? Have a great week, Chris # 29

Julia Dunnit said...

Good grief, AP already?! That a caught me out for sure! Well be sure to have fun with your gals, love the meeting part of these days! I like the look of your Prima box...I could soon have a similar look...have sort of only just come round to Prima!!

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh I forgot to say, the journal sizes are fascinating, bet a psychologist could make lots of it. For me, it's the bound spine that is a mystery to me...I hate working in them!!

Annie said...

Hi. Thanks for visiting me yesterday. I'm afraid to say that up til Christmas my WOYWW visiting has to be done on the Thursday because I have taken on an extra day with my twinnies but I promise I will still be visiting :-)
Would love a spare hour or two just rummaging through all your stash Helen :-)
Hugs,Annie x # 30

Eliza said...

OMG my mouth is still hanging and the brain is going into overdrive, that is one serious collection of goodies, do you really know everything that is on that chair? Love the journal sizes, this I understand. LOL

Have a great week crafting.

I was more scared of the cleared space than the normal comforting piles of goodies. Those journals look great nice and big for serious playing. I had a peek at your trips to Ally Pally and boy did you do well. Looks like a fabulous event.
Have a great week,
Von #25
