WOYWW 382

Yo, deskers!  It'll be a quick trip today, there isn't much going on!
Head Desker Julia will be delighted at how short and sweet it will be today


I have realised as I am typing this up that you can't see what the stamps are!
they were designed by a lovely friend of mine Debs who won a competition to design some stamps and got given a few sets to give away, I was lucky enough to get a set, which arrived today (Tuesday) - I am hoping to have time to play soon, they are small doodly-flowers and will be great on journals and atcs etc.  I'll be sure to show you what I do.
So I am getting mega-excited about the weekend and my trip to Port Sunlight for Happy Stampers, with some good friends and hoping to meet up lots of deskers as well as Paperartsy 'PAtwits' too.  - see you there!
Not only that, I have next week off work too!  I'll leave you (not so short and sweet after all!) in Julia's care at Stamping Ground

Enjoy your trip to the Stamp show. I am so envious. We don't have stuff like that here any more. I am even more green about the fact that you get to meet up with fellow WOYWWers... One day I will have to come to the UK to meet up with you all. #11

Yo Helen! (That made me lol!!). I hope you have a really good time at the Happy Stampers show, I know for a fact that Shaz Silverwolf loved it. I think there's a good few deskers going - it'll be like a Northern Crop!

How lucky to receive such a lovely set of stamps from your friend - and so special as she designed them herself. I hope you have loads of fun using them and I hope you have a great time at Port Sunlight - sounds like it's going to be fun!

Hi Helen, what a great win for your friend, and a great set of stamps. Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday, it's a great show, we really enjoyed the one we went to in May. I loved the fact that it's Stamper orientated, unlike the Hobbycrafts/NEC show, which is pretty much a bit of everything. See you there, Love & hugs, Shaz xx

Ooh lovely, a week off starting with a show, like the sound of that for planning! Isn't Debs a clever stick, I agree totally about the usefulness of her designs, they'll be one of those 'reach for it' sets. Have a fab time at Port Sunlight, please give Neet a HUGE hug from me!

Lovely stamps, Helen. How cool to get a (free) advance set! Have a lovely time at Port Sunlight. Thank you for your lovely comment - I am sure the cakes will survive the trip to Somerset. I'm really looking forward to it. Montacute is lovely - you should make a return visit!
