WOYWW 368

Morning again desk hoppers.  Reporting for duty - head to Jan's  for the link up

Not much been happening here, two more half done journal pages with the new stamps I got last week, but not sure about either of them, may gesso over the black one on the right...still undecided.

I've just realised I haven't done any pre-birthday splurge shopping... better put that right!**  I've kind of staged the desk this week as some early cards have arrived together with a gift my mate Sam gave me when we met up at the Angel Powertex workshop a few weeks ago, haven been patiently keeping it on instruction not to open it early (which I never do anyway!)
It's on Sunday so not long to wait now!

Hoping that both Jan and Julia have had good weeks after Jan lost her much loved Dad and Julia's continued recovery of course.

That's it from me today, short and sweet.. happy desk hopping day!

**edit... have done some online shopping since writing this... lol!

I love your space and those journal pages are amazing! I love that you have a small space to create and then so many products close by.

Hi Helen, it strikes me I have no idea how we'd have managed before Internet shopping! lol. I was very taken with the Abstract stencils too, and saw some fab things done with them on Pinterest, as you do. Have a lovely birthday on Sunday my friend, Hugs, Shaz #7 xxx

Both journal pages look pretty good from my perspective. Let us know what was in the bag and like you I always keep everything until the big day. Have a lovely birthday.

I'm really liking both your pages, particularly the darker one that you are thinking of gesso-ing over! I think they are both working really well but no matter what anyones says it's got to sit right with you. I wonder what's in the bag - you must be very strong willed not to even have a peek!!
Have a lovely week and a lovely birthday,

Angela Radford said...

Great journal pages, that's another stamp I have and not used yet, though I did only get it a couple of weeks ago when I went to Stamp Magic. Another late visit today as we've been to the Lincolnshire agricultural show today. Look forward to seeing what you've ordered. Thanks for the visit to mine and happy woyww, Angela x 21

Sue said...

I hope you have a fantastic birthday. Like you, I'm more than willing to wait until my day, because it's more fun than opening gifts and cards piecemeal. Enjoy your day!
