WOYWW 402 - the haul from Sunday's trip

Hello and happy WOYWW-day... time to bare all (desk wise) once again...
The best day of the week... Desk day and half way to the weekend!!

so, as I showed in the previous post (here) I went to Stamperama on Sunday in Stevenage, and boy, did  my cards get a workout!


 two piles of goodies, as they don't all fit in one!
Stencils, paints, inks, twines, infusions..
and  stamps, laces, chipboard, flowers, a couple of dies...

Luvvly Jubbly!



and just in case you think I've bought all these new goodies for nothing - I am using them already!

another background in the journal, which may or may not be finished, it might get a focal image yet!

(stamps by Lin Brown for Paperartsy) Inks are Ranger archival in shades of bluey-green



the link for the desks, should you need it, is here

Morning Helen, thought you'd pipped me to the number 1 spot for a minute. I've been awake for an age already and was trying to find things to do before the family stir. One thing is making a list of possible birthday things to buy and your desk is a prime candidate for inspiration. Think I need to add a stencil or two (already added a brick wall embossing folder from Julia's last post in the week !!!) Oh and would you believe I have my "Follow your dreams" nightie on, just like your journal page. Typical someone just came and closed my door!! Probably husband he hates to wake early and I still have a cough, not even a "Happy Birthday!" Good job I have crafty friends who wake early. Hugs BJ#1

Your desk rivals mine - and I was there for three weeks with the opportunity to buy, so you obviously were busy on the day of the show. So glad you were as I just love seeing what you have and this time you are showing us already what you are up to with it.
Thanks for showing us and inspiring us to spend
Lots of Love

Hi Helen,

Wow - you have some nice things on your desk! Great job on choosing fun stuff! Double bonus points for already using them too! Your journal page looks great.

I'm going to my locally owned shop Saturday to take another class. I HAVE TO take an inventory of my Tim Holtz mini stamp pads before I go. I'd hate to have doubles.... well, maybe not!

Happy WOYWW
Hugs,

Happy WOYWW. I used to buy that amount of stash at shows, but eventually my credit card got overpowered! Taking 3 years to pay it all off now, so it is good that I live too far west to get to shows now. You are definitely going to have lots of fun playing with it all. Ali x #26

Dorlene Durham said...

Great stuff! And you're already using them so SCORE! Happy WOYWW!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I am very sorry about the incredibly late peek Turns out working on a Wednesday and joining in WOYWW don't go together - so I will just have to have Wednesdays off! Love seems to be in the air, really love the blue you have used. Your haul pictures are just making me itchy for the knit and stitch show - IN OCTOBER (wail). Thanks for sharing - EmbroidRage #6 x
