WOYWW 375 from one extreme to the other..

well what can I say??  Wednesday again (already) time to link with Julia at the Stamping Ground
.. but lots more to show today! (Paperartsy keep releasing new stuff!)

 so this was what I was waiting for last week!
have even had a play with some of the stamps - finished the journal page from last week (didn't paint over it!
some of you saw it when I linked it for the Paperartsy challenge.
 I didn't go outside the front door at the weekend, no trip to Kew this week, just binge-Olympics... but did do a bit of clearing/moving/cleaning ( yes, I know...)
Opened the big storage boxes I got from the Works a few weeks ago (quite disappointed actually, they "pop" together with press-studs but both boxes have one that is a little out of alignment so don't click shut properly... hey ho!

Anyway I have put the to use with my Paperartsy A5 plates in stead of the previous boxes, and moved a few things around... devotees of my room may spot what's changed!

let me see if I can find an old photo, hang on...
well this sort of show shows it looked ...

and then on Saturday Paperartsy released some new JoFY stamps - oh me oh my!

8 new minis and 2 large sets (see, I was restrained,I only got 6 of the minis!!!!)

they arrived today (oops, Tuesday) at work and in time for their debut on the desk today!
now to log them in the catalogue and hopefully ink them up!

(you can also see my little (A6) journal in which I've been playing with my Stampotiques I got a few weeks ago - who says I don't use my stuff!!)

sorry I kept you so long, will let you go and desk hop some more now.

Wow that is tidy! You got' tidieitis' missis? Great new stash from Leandra and some Stampotique too - I have ordered two Stampotique ones (as per my blog) but need more. Got my eye on some Paperartsy ones coming out too. Seems ages since I bought some stamps ... oh no, I did get some Carabelle ones not long ago.
Ah well, have a good week, lots of TV for you I guess.
Hugs, Neet 3 xx

Morning Helen. Yep - spotted the differences... You certainly have loads of lovely stash to play with - and I'm sure you do indeed use it all. Amazing how a tidy shows us things we haven't used for some time, though, isn't it? Oops!
Take care. God bless.

Diana Taylor said...

Wow, love what you've done with last weeks page - those PA stamps are great. And the Stampotique stamps look like fun, I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with them. I seem to spend my life re-sorting my stuff to try and make way for new stuff - you've done a good job re-organising and gaining more work space.
Hope you have a lovely week,
Diana #16

LisaDV said...

Yes, you definitely showed more restraint than I have. I love your journal page, those stamps are perfect for it. You have so many storage boxes that I just want to come and look through them all to see all of the treasures inside. Blessings for a great WOYWW and terrific week! LisaDV #28

Sue said...

Hi Helen, You look like you have a lot to sort, so at least that will keep you out of mischief.

Loving the new stash. Have fun with it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Your journal page is even more lovely with the new stamps. I liked it before, but even more so, now.

I was so impressed with the opening ceremonies, but Sally said what little she saw, she wasn't impressed at all. Hope you liked them as much as I did. It's a great diversion from Kew.

So glad you didn't paint over the page as it is so vibrant, love it. Thanks for visiting me BJ#18

Julia Dunnit said...

Binge watching the olympics is a very pleasant way to pass the weekend, I must say. Am really resenting the overnight action and hearing the results before seeing the action! I love some of the JoFy stamps, and I like the challenge page very much, so glad you didn't paint it out, bet you are now!

butterfly said...

Hmmm... where's your workspace gone?! Great to see the new releases putting in an appearance, and a fabulous page full of funky colour to go with the retro style images. Pity about the non-aligned boxes - take'em back!!
