Hello again and welcome to another Wednesday desk hopping fun with Julia    for a time whilst she's off having a break before her big op, the link is here with the lovely LunchLady Jan 

I was walking past The Works on Saturday and saw these collapsible storage boxes

You can never have too many storage boxes so I grabbed a couple...
two for £10, not bad!  I couldn't resist the one with the Hungry Caterpillar on, and the London Tube map was my second choice..

there "may" be an order on it's way from Artist Trading Post too... or there will be when they finishing moving house and can get back to packing orders...

The journal page is another one I've been working on with Paperartsy Infusions
like the one in the previous post.
it's not finished yet, will show you when I have though.

I'll get to as many of your desks as I can only Liverpool are playing Sevilla in the Europa cup final tonight so I'll be a bit distracted and more than possibly a bit late..

I thought I'd come and check and, sure enough, you beat me to it!
Love your infusions work - I'm still at the first baby steps practising stage!
Boxes look good too

Can't put a number on yet but you can copy/paste as I've actually started posting again! :-)

Morning, Helen. Great boxes there - at a good price. I see them sometimes when wandering Llandudno, but never gone for them (yet!). Lovely looking page you have on the go there - well done. Erm... Infusions??
Take care - enjoy the football. God bless.

I agree with you. You can´t get enough of storage. You never have enough even if you try... LOL

Lovely little Art journal.

Have a fun WOYWW!

Morti said...

I love the idea of an art journal, and I even started one once, but that was as far as I got... not sure why!

Thanks for the heads up about LFC - that means hubby will be glued to it via whatever means it's broadcast tonight!

I saw that the football game is on tonight. I have it set to 'remind'. Hopefully I'll be around to watch it. It is on here mid-afternoon as I am five hours behind England.

Love the storage boxes. Can never have too many! The journal page is looking great. It's been a while since I did one, but having my paints out yesterday to make ATCs has been fun and I'm thinking I should play with my paints some more.

Have a great week

Hi Helen, lol at you & the football. Seriously glad I'm not a sports fan, I'd never have any time,lol. It's been raining here today, so I'm hoping it will start to dry up for Saturday. If not, I may just have to get Hubby to take me out to Pink Tulip, a craft shop near us which was about to close, but another craft store has stepped in and taken it up, so they are having an open day on Saturday. Really need to remind myself what it's called now! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #2 xxx

Hello Helen. Those are super cute boxes picked up and yes there is never enough storage one person can have. Your journal page is looking great and can not wait to see it finished. Have a great week Hugs ~Anne L#47

Elizabeth said...

Hi Helen, I'm early enough to avoid interrupting the football, I hope. You can't have enough storage and those boxes are a bit of a bargain so I understand why you couldn't resist them. Your journal page is super - I like the colours and love the stamps. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #41

My name is Cindy said...

Storage boxes aren't a problem, but space could become one...... Must stop SHOPPING and do some CRAFTING. Enjoy the football. Happy WOYWW Cindy #36

Lisca said...

Great storage boxes! I like the Tube map one.
How is the football match going? Seville is a very popular team with a large following here in Spain. We don't have TV so I won't be watching.
Happy WOYWW,
Have a good week,

Journal page looks great so far! Looks as though you got a bargain with those boxes! Can't watch the match - but I'll be waiting for the score! Hugs, Chrisx

Chrysalis said...

I love those boxes and you're right, you can never have enough. The journal pages are looking great. Sorry for late visit. Chrysalis 58

Lynne Mizera said...

Personally I don't think you can ever have enought storage! Grin It's so nice to see someone so wonderfully active and I am loving your journal page, can't wait to see the finished product. Thanks for the visit and lovely comment - Scrapbook Lynne WOYWW #13

Shoshi said...

The collapsing boxes look intriguing and your journal page is gorgeous, Helen! Well done. I saw a fabulous representation of the hungry caterpillar at the Devon County Show today and will be blogging with some photos soon! Thank you for your lovely comment, and yes, Phoebe couldn't have found a warmer, more comfortable place to get shut in, could she! My hubby is pleased with his card, and I'll be blogging about that, soon, too!

Happy belated WOYWW,

Hi Helen,
Your desk looks nice and busy. I love the size of your journal. I actually just found a moleskin that might be the same size or a size larger. I decided I'm going to use it as an art journal - wish me luck. I can't wait to see your page when it's finished.

It's nice to be back among WOYWWers. Everyone is so great and supportive of eachother. I had no idea what Julia has been going through - bless her heart.

Thanks for visiting me already,
Kay (4)

Neet said...

Hope it is a case of 'better late than never' - sorry I am so late but with being away ... and we "heard" the match in the various bars and things in Paris - did you enjoy it?
Love the new storage boxes, my only problem is I have nowhere to put them if I get more. Oh hecky pecky - I need a house with elastic sides.
Look forward to seeing the journal finished.
Hugs, Neet 10 xx

butterfly said...

Yes, definitely with you on the storage boxes - no such thing as too many (though there is such a thing as too little space to put them). Love those journalling pages.
