WOYWW 350


So, desk time... WOYWW time.. As ever, all the info here at the Stamping Ground with Julia

a nice round number, week 350... I wonder how many of the 350 weeks I've had new "stuff" on show... actually, no better not go there... far too many to count...
today is no different.. I blame Paperartsy and my addiction...

I had this shot all ready to share with you today.. some new stencils and Fresco paints (bubblegum and winter green)





but then on Tuesday...
... another stamp set came.. so I took the shot again...

as you can see (and some of you read the blog post about it on Sunday) the stencil has already been put to good use...
and I did a journal page for the Wanderlust online course too... you can see more here if you missed it

so a productive weekend, and lots of fun to be had ahead with the new stamps - they were designed by Kasia who is running the Wanderlust course with Jamie from Artist Trading Post and we are promised more later in the year!

so, thanks for visiting, and I'll be round for tea and cake and your desk very soon...

Lovely page you did for Wanderlust. I haven't been been there yet - naughty but unavoidable at the moment.
Love seeing your new stashes and the fact that so much of our stash is Paperartsy makes it even better for me as I love all things Leandra and Mark.
Hugs, Neet 13 again xxx

I would love to be hosting tea and cake! It would be the perfect time to show me those stencils in person (who doesn't love show and tell when they have new goodies?)

Enjoy your week!

I'm chuckling at the picture you put in my head this morning. Just imagine us all in a room sitting in a circle. In turn we each stand up and say 'My name is .....,I am a craftoholic'. :-) I have a feeling many of us would fit the bill don't you? Mine would be 'My name is Annie, I'm a fabricoholic'. I must admit with all the crafting I'm doing at the mo I am using up a lot of my fabric....but there is soooooooooo much to go yet.....and let me loose in a fabric shop and I just know I couldn't resist buying more.
Here's hoping you have a good week.
Hugs,

Don't even begin trying to work it out...or the amount of money it's all cost over the years!! Too scary. On the other hand, if you were a big drinker or smoker, all that money would have gone without anything to show for it. So crafting is good...buy some more :-D
Hugs, LLJ 9" xx

I'm so loving your shopping hoarding! I'm so guilty of that too! Gorgeous journal page Helen xx

butterfliecrafter said...

well, I start to see that when you are a crafter you also become a collector :-). I am also very much behind with the Wanderlust course.Vicky#7

Wonderful journal page and I must say those stencils looks very addictive.

Angela Radford said...

More new stash Helen! The journal page looks great and so does the course, I keep wondering whether to have a look at it but not sure about the time involved that I would need to give to it. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 26

Love the black, white and sumptious green!

Have a good week

Dawn Catmull said...

LOVE your mixed media page, the colours are fab...it's great. Can I ask...if you use sharpie white pens on journalling do they have to be water or oil based? Thanks.

Sharon said...

I agree with Nikki C - Paper Artsy needs to be your sponsor! I love all the goodies you seem to get from them. I love your journal page - it's beautiful!

I love the new stencils and what you did with it on that journal page. The Wanderlust spread is gorgeous too! Have a lovely day - I hope it is as sunny as we have in the Netherlands! Happy woyww, Marit #45

My name is Cindy said...

LOL read Nikki's comment - yes I think PA should sponsor you!! As usual you are making us jealous with our goodies. Have just realised won't be around for the Spring Ally Pally show (wedding, nothing sinister). Don't think I can wait till September for a crafty fix so may have to find somewhere else to go!!
Happy WOYWW Cindy #38

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Lovely journal page! You made me laugh saying that you briefly wondered how many of your WOYWW posts featured new stuff. Tis a frightening thought is it not? I'm glad you said we shouldn't go there. PJ #55

That Wanderlust page is amazing, love the colours! Your purchasing some new stuff is totally allowed, some of us enjoy it immensely, no matter if vicariously!

Thanks for sharing -

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

350 weeks, but a LOT more products than 350, I'm sure. Of course, I love what you did with the stencils. Beautiful art and journal pages.

Sofie Vandersmissen said...

I love your new stash and the journal page you made!

Greetings, Sofie #34

Artyjen said...

Very tempted by those stencils myself Helen!! Have fun using them.....sure that you will.

craftytrog said...

Just given in and got some of the new stencils and paints! :-)

Hettie said...

I would say at least 352!!! LOL!!
Lovely stencils there. So pretty.

Elizabeth said...

Hi Helen, I think it is better you don't count too. If it is an addiction it's a fairly harmless one - well, if you don't count the impact on your bank account, it is! Love the stencils and stamps on your desk this week, as usual :) And your very pink journal page is gorgeous and how you created it made fascinating reading. Thanks for your comment earlier ... good luck with your intention to use your new stuff sooner this year :) Have a great weekend. Hugs, Elizabeth x #41

Lucy Edmondson said...

Ooh lovely goodies!

Shoshi said...

Helen, I adore posts about new stash, but the trouble is, they feed my own addiction lol! I got some Paper Artsy stamps and stencils recently - new ones out - and I'm hoping to blog about them soon. Thank you for your two lovely comments and I'm glad you enjoyed my various activities lately. Lovely that you've still got your panda. Funny how you can always tell whether cuddly bears etc. are boys or girls, isn't it! We've got so many between us and they all have names and individual characters - my hubby puts them in the front window so people can see them from the street. I must take a photo of that!

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #61

Updating the photo for the new stash made me laugh - and the page looks amazing. Hoping I'll get to see more before the signal collapses again...
