WOYWW? 299

Morning/afternoon/evening... welcome back for another desk-hopping extravaganza... if you want to know all about it,Julia's Stamping Ground is the place to start..
Now, I know you are all expecting new stuff again this week... but I've been let down by deliveries not being sent when they should have, lol!!   Waiting for some pre-ordered stamps that should have arrived by now and are only just on the way, and something from Amazon that is coming from the States so also isn't here yet (even though in both cases, friends who ordered the same things at the same time already have theirs... so NOT fair, ha ha!!)

so instead, I've opened another box...
 This is a box of papers next to the end of the sofa, (there is another one underneath this...) and as you can see, it's a bit full...there are lots of plastic wallets in this and indeed the one underneath, all labelled... but, also lots of loose things too...
I don't use much of what's in here (and there's stuff dumped on top, inevitably so it's a right palaver to get into )





the papers I do tend to use, are in the plastic concertina wallet in front of the box, and are mostly Tim Holtz but not all... these are the 12 x12 ones... smaller pads are elsewhere..

the plastic tubs with the bright lids, down by the side of the sofa, are tubs of glitter... just in caseyou were wondering!


to put the other pictures into context a bit, here's a final slightly wider angle shot..showing even more stuff!
There is no hope, obviously...
See you all soon.

Morning Helen! You do have a lot of stash! Hats off to you for keeping it all in some kind of order in your living room and making such wonderful pages too.
Have a happy week

Oh dear - not nice when you order stuff with friends and yours doesn't come but theirs does. Never mind, just hope it doesn't arrive this morning ie just too late for this edition of your WOYWW. So maddening when that happens.
Have a good week.
Hugs, Neet xx

Love the desk as always Helen

glitterandglue said...

Wow, Helen. Such a lot of lovely stash. Must confess that mine is kept somewhat higher off the floor. My aged knees are Ok getting down there - it's the getting up again which causes the problems...
Hope you orders arrive soon.
Take care. God bless.

Annie said...

I'm grabbing a few minutes while my munchkins are enjoying a book together to visit a few of my fav bloggy friends....and you're one of those. 😃
Hope your new stash comes soon. I bet the next thing you are looking for will be in the boxes on the bottom of the pile....I've had one of those weeks!
Hugs,
Annie x #19

Sharon Madson said...

I think as long as we are breathing, we will be adding to our stash! It is in all of our dna. Happy crafting! #28

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I don't know how you remember where it all is! It's a fine stash indeed....and you make some fab things things out of it. Hope your orders turn up soon :-)
Hugs, LLJ 27 xx

Julia Dunnit said...

I do that. I organise and sort and then one day can't be bothered to make time to put new stuff or left overs back in the box in the right divider and then -pouf! A new wallet, on top of the other stuff so I can get to it more easily and...other stuff unused and forgotten! I'm beginning to suspect that you may have more paper than me...that's definitely the case with the glitter!

Gosh what a lot of stash! Boxes and boxes. The advantage is that you will find stuff you didn't remember having!
How frustrating when your friends already have received their stuff and you are still waiting! The postal service should have caught up by now after the Christmas rush....
Thanks for visiting already. You beat me to it! (You always will as I go to the gym on Wed morning)
Have a great week,
Lisca#25

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

Obviously! I have those brightly lidded boxes too. The contents of yours is much more fun. Mine are in the freezer with leftovers in.

Christine said...

Now I have stopped laughing at Fiona's comment ...
I have lots of boxes as well, maybe I should share mine. This is the year I am clearing them out, yes I am ...... oh yes I am ...... I am ..... sometime .... when it's warmer......
Look forward to seeing your order which will arrive soon I am sure.
Have a good time when it does.

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Helen, I too have so much paper/ scrap sized bits that never get used, despite moving to a drawer right behind my desk! I can never find a piece the right size, lol. Maybe I need to chuck out the really small stuff.Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #18 xx

Marit said...

It amazes me how you still manage to find the tools and materials you want to use... but hey, I'm an organizing-chickie... I DO love that a radio takes the spotlight in your photo - creating with music is how I rock too! Happy woyww and a big hug from Holland, Marit #41

Eliza said...

Ha I came here to see what you had purchased this week, being smug I am, and bingo nothing, now I am disappointed but still pleased you showed what's in the box I do like this show and tell. Well I have purchased goodies on my desk this week so I am tickled pink.

Happy WOYWW
Hugs Eliza & Yoda 522

Not 522 it's No 52

Krisha said...

In all your show and tell, have you come across something you totally forgot you have? My stash is smaller ( somewhat) and I always find something forgotten. Well, maybe that's has to do with how "mature" I am (old.....ya know!)

I'll be back next week to see what DIDN'T arrive for this week.....grin

Thanks for the visit...Krisha #1

Sandy Leigh said...

Helen, I love all your goodies. This is why crafting and creating just makes us happy. I'd rather have stash than cash I think! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #41

Carmen said...

Ooh I do love having a rummage around your living room :P I have decided your living room must have Tardis capabilities! There's always another corner or box to peek in :P

Chrysalis said...

What an amazing stash of goodies! I hope you can find room for the new toys when they arrive. Happy crafting, Chris # 21

Robyn said...

What can I say- Stuff- can't live with it, can't live without it!
Robyn- thanks for visiting!

Julie Ann Lee said...

I do hope your stamps come soon, Helen! How annoying! My OH thinks I've got lots of crafting stuff now - maybe I should show him your pics! xxx

My name is Cindy said...

Seriously? You do this post then leave me a message to say you are shopping again at the weekend? Really, there is no hope LOL. Re my card, I am not a huge digi crafter, but I do seem to have acquired a lot of CD/DVDs - they are very useful for the odd request I get for something specific on a card and you can always find a polka dot paper somewhere if you need one!! Hope you had a great Weds Cindy x

RosA said...

Hi Helen,
You always have more stash (new or otherwise) to show :)
I just hope you find enough time to use it all :) :)
Thanks for dropping by earlier too.

I always love to visit and see what you have going on and what you have received to play with! I could never play in the floor....I can still get down but getting up is the thing now! Glenda #45

Lindart said...

Oooh! I see some unopened Tim Holtz Washi Tape! I was looking at that the other day in Michael's, wanted it, but here it was $14.00 and $16.00 per package - too rich for me! Ended up buying some tape that was on sale for $2.50. Mistake! Thanks for visiting me! Lindart #59

Shoshi said...

Lovely lot of fun stash, Helen! Thank you for your lovely comment and good wishes for my operation tomorrow. Hopefully it won't be too long before I'm up and running again. I have just updated my Cancer Diary page with events from today.

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #42

Hettie said...

You should play a game of playing with the stuff at the bottom of the pile. Musical boxes maybe?
I hope your stuff has come!
Hugs

Beverley Baird said...

butterfly said...

No hope... but who needs hope when you have so many lovely toys to play with! Just hope you didn't want to read any of those books...
