Welcome to the best thing about Wednesdays - WOYWW  - all details here and to boot it's nearly the weekend and a long one with the Easter break... hurrah!  I am more than ready for a couple of extra days off.

My workspace has been invaded....    by bunnies...     chocolate ones... I'm taking these in to work to share. (and yes I have one for myself too!)
the real goodies that you've come to see though, are these - this is what I was waiting for last week!
Country View Crafts had a few of the older Paperartsy Hotpicks on sale and it was only by chance that I found out about it... so a few (4!! I know you'll be surprised there are that many I didn't already have!) fell into my shopping basket... I have still to ink them up so hoping for some good crafting time at the weekend.

I am writing this on Tuesday night, listening to the news about the latest terror attacks that happened in Brussels this morning. Wishing you all stay safe, wherever you are... what an awful world it is to be sure, sometimes.

Yummy those bunnies look so good and you always have such fun new stash to play with. Hugs Nikki??
Such a shame that happened in Brussels it's just sorry for all those who list family members

Judys Lace Creations said... eyes zoomed in on the bunnies straight away.How lovely of you to treat your work mates.
I am dreading Easter, as I have lost 4 kilos since Xmas...I just can't have choc in the house NO will power whatsoever where choc is concerned.
Have a Happy and Peaceful Easter.

how generous of you for taking in chocolates to work, have fun inking up those stamps this weekend and remember their are a lot more good people than bad, the world is still a beautiful place to live, just don't forget to enjoy every and single day as life is very fragile. happy WOYWW, Vicky #9

Neet said...

What a lovely thing to do - take those bunnies in to work, and yes, I am surprised you had four missing Hotpicks.
It was so upsetting seeing the news again last night - hearing those children really got to me and my heart goes out to the people of Belgium.
Hugs, Neet 12 xx

You've just reminded me that I bought six of those bunnies for my craft ladies last week and I didn't give them. I don't know where they are. Oh heck I'll have to eat them when I find them

Virginia said...

Gorgeous stamps and loving the pile of chocolate bunnies too.

The attacks in Brussels are awful, but we need to make sure we focus on all the good people in the world and send prayers to those affected by the news - so very sad!

Lynsey said...

It's the rules that you have to have lindt bunny for yourself too! My Granny gave me one for Easter, she's adorable, thinks I'm still 5 not 33. I hope you enjoy your bunny, mine didn't make it to Easter! Lyns #21

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Oh, we all have gaps in out stash library - feel free to fill those holes!! Those choccy bunnies look very tempting..I'm glad you've got one for yourself too :-)
Hugs, LLJ 1 xx

Anne said...

Lots of yummies on your desk. The events in Brussels are indeed dreadful - as we speak my son and family are at this minute at an airport waiting to go to the US for a holiday and my younger son and family fly to Portugal on Friday - feeling a little tense. Anne x #24

Gave Max one of those little bunnies when she was about 5. As she picked it up to eat it I foolishly put on bunnies voice and said "don't eat me!" and she didn't - it sat in our fridge for weeks until I melted it down for a chocolate cake - what a wicked mother I am! x Jo

I am doing a very quick whistle stop tour of my fav blogs in my lunch break today. It's pretty manic returning the bungalow to a little nearer normality for when our Dutch friends arrive tomorrow so please forgive me that it is such a quick visit.
I hope you enjoy your Easter bunnies and have a good break.

Good morning I did notice the bunnies just before seeing the wonderful stamps they look like your going to have great fun with those. The world is a crazy place now not as I remember it when I was a child, sorry to hear that this hits so close to home and my heart goes out to the families. Have a wonderful Easter and happy WOYWW Hugs~Anne L#7

Well those bunnies look yummy as do those new stamps. Believe or not I didn't have any chocolate yesterday. No eggs or bunnies here. Though I did receive some chocolate on stirring spoons. The type you stir into milk or coffee. Take care Zo xx 43
