WOYWW 308...

Look, I've told you before, it can't be Wednesday again already.... but Julia tells me it's time to bare all again... figuratively speaking!
 so these are the goodies that eventually turned up on Thursday last week...more bargains from the closing down Stamp Attic (sorry to anyone I'm "enabling" ha ha)
and a few more here... together with stage 2 WIP of the ATCs... not quite sure whether they'll make the cut (sorry) or not yet... as you can see I got bored with cutting out... am meant to be making a birthday card which is needed sooner rather than later..

I'll leave it there, short and sweet, go on get desking!! 

oh, I forgot -- Julia you asked if I had a new trimmer or just put it away in it's packing each time - well it's fairly new, but yes, I keep it in it's packing as that's tidier and easier for me... sorry!!!

You don't sound like a penitent enabler!! Nice haul there from last week, the PA stamps really scare me so rather than get some and play, which I should, I freeze and pretend I don't like them!! Love the pink and blue you've got together on the floor there, striking. Accident or design?!!

I don't see that keeping your cutter in its packaging is an issue! I think if something cost a lot, then it's worth looking after. I'm loving those vintage sewing stamps you've just got, those will make some great cards :-)
Good luck with the ATCs, I've gone down a different route this year!
Hugs, LLJ 19 xx

I must confess I did peruse the site and made a wishlist but then I found a shop and the rest is history (or posted as a WOYWW!)
I love those stamps you bought - look forward to seeing your makes.
Have a good week

So far I have resisted the urge to shop. I feel my resolve crumbling. And my craft room is LITTERED with trimmers, some always cut wonky, some need new blades, some I bought because I was just SURE it would be my "forever trimmer" ... ha blinkin' HA. I expect to buy at least 4 or 5 more before I shuffle off.... Maybe if I kept them in the box they would last longer.

Happy day!

Ooh, this is a desk I could work at. Of course I'd get rid of the box as I don't do things to try and keep tidy :D

You are going to have an astronomical amount of art products and tools by the time Stamp Attic finally closes its doors. I love all the vintage stamps. Blessings, and thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

More wonderful shopping - I notice a certain manufacturer being shown quite a lot in your stash(es). I know it is a favourite of yours and rightly so.
