WOYWW 435 ...shopping time

eek,  I am entering a craft-shopping mood again... could be costly.
I heard about a friend of a friend who was de-stashing some goodies, mostly Dylusions.  Did my friend know of anyone who wanted them......... what a silly question!

before I share what I got (well obviously I did!) it was great to see some posts already about the crop last weekend.  I was so sad not to have been able to get there, I think it's the first one I've missed.
But, well done Margaret for organising what looks a fantastic day!

OK.  you're here for a desk. .for WOYWW  (link at Julia's)
Originally it looked like this...

an empty hamper basket that I re-purposed from work - courtesy of a grateful client to the team for sorting out her mortgage.



but that's boring, right?



then the goodies arrived..

so now it looks like this!
ooh look; stamps!!


there is also a peak at the journal from last week.
a little adding to it...



bit of a closer look... I have enhanced the original heart (the light one in the middle) by replacing the stencil and adding some paint


then I added another heart hanging off the bottom of the page, and also at the top too

I like the dark one at the bottom.

Not sure where it's going from here, who knows, next week may see it finished!

till then, happy WOYWW - I'm off to see who else has pics to share from the crop!

Yes, I like the heart hanging off the bottom too. Lovely page - and my colours.
Am envious of the purchases this week - think I have the stamps but can still be envious. I am a Dylusion fan.

Hi Helen. Yes, sorry you couldn't be there - another one is already looming for next year... France, I hear! I do like the colours on your page - and that heart you added is lovely. Goodness - what lovely things you managed to purchase from your friend of a friend... enjoy!
Take care. God bless.

Oh I love it when someone de-stashes! I always try to avoid buying but it's still delicious to think about! Happy WOYWW!

You were missed!! It was odd not seeing you at the crop as youve been there from the first. Next time huh?! I love that wicker basket and it looks even better with the repurposed stash in it, lol! The journal page is great, I really like the bottom heart that's disappearing off the page.
Hugs LLJ 12 xxxx

Christine said...

Love those stencils, is the basket going to be a 'look at me' one or are you filling it with Christmas goodies and passing it on? Either way it sounds good.
Missed you at the Crop, hope you can make it next time.
Have a good week

That's a lovely little basket and looks great with stamps in - and what's more there's loads of room for more new stamps!! I love the edging ones with the leafy garland, I could do lots with that set I'm sure!

Ooh, yum to the scrumptious hearts - like you I love the dark one, and then the paler one is like a soft echo. Looking gorgeous... as are all those new Dylusions goodies... they couldn't have gone to a better second home.
