WOYWW 483 - happy mail

Hurrah, lots of happy mail in fact!   Before I enable you though, let me tell you why you're here.. it's Wednesday, so it's WOYWW   (what's on your workdesk? wednesday)  week 483... brain child of our beloved leader Julia. 

so.  happy mail...

 this one arrived on Tuesday....
the Dina Wakley collage papers are mixed in the packets, the Dina stencil looks great in action (it's called ladders) - I saw it on you tube somewhere, it makes a fab background...  and I loved the Aall & Create one with the little squares..

they came from Artist Trading Post and I only ordered them on Sunday!


these ones arrived last week - the ones I was waiting for


the Dina stamps and the stencil came from That's Crafty and the paper dolls (Christmas edition) and trees from Country View Craft - Sue had a bank holiday weekend sale....



I finished another delayed  page for France's facebook group challenge.


this one was the one that was entitled "self talk" or how do you talk to yourself...
and was from week 30.  we're on week 36 now.. so I have a few to catch up on (although I've done week 31, that I shared last week)

Don't blame me if you now go shopping...!  enjoy your WOYWW..

OMGosh. I am in LUST. You have more stencils than most stores. And are those new paper dolls? I have two sets, but none for Christmas. You SCORED big time. No number yet, not even posted, yet. But you know where I live.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Julia's post is live, but I can't link. I wonder if you can.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

No Helen, I ALWAYS TICK the box. It's showing an error a zero error of some kind. Can you link me?

Snap Helen, I couldn't resist the Christmas paper dolls at that price either lol. Love the look of those Dina Wakely stamps. Have a good week. Sarah #4

Neet said...

Lovely mail there Helen but it's no good telling me about sales after they happen. You certainly bagged some bargains there. I am waiting for a parcel from Artist Trading Post. Ooh!
Love your journal page - am sure you will catch up but if not it will just go on a bit longer for you - no worries.
Hugs, Neet 8 xx

Morning Helen. Do wish we could all see you on Saturday - I know our special guest was really hoping you could be there and she could meet you, but I do understand it is rather a long way! You look like you have been having great fun purchasing - some lovely bits and pieces there. Talk to myself? - wouldn't dare admit what I say - but I always get the right answers!!
Take care. God bless.

Hi Helen, I love all the enabling that goes on in WOYWW! Some fab stash there, love the stencils. Believe it or not, the Holland trip is all based around going to see a band we love in concert! Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #9 X

Diana Taylor said...

Ooh fab stash Helen, looks like you're going to have some great fun with that lot. I love the pages you created too, what a tricky title they gave you. I daren't go and buy more stuff as while I've been sorting my stash I've been finding things that have never been opened!!
Have a great week,
Diana x #18

Happy post is the best even better if it was a bargain, enjoy. x

Angie said...

Ohhh! I will live vicariously through you as I'm on a shopping hiatus! I have decided to use what I have and after a (yet to be determined) time period, what I haven't used will be rehomed before buying anything new. As a crafter, it is so easy to spend, spend, spend but not so easy to use all that I buy lol! I must change that if I ever want that rv to travel in lol! Thanks for the visit!

If you are going to the crop have a lovely time!

Shoshi said...

Great new stash, Helen - have fun playing! Thank you for your visit - I think my leg is a bit better this a.m. I've now had 3 days on my medication so I think it's circulating in my system by now, and I've also put on one of the stockings I got at the hospital when I was in for an operation and this seems to be relieving the pain when I stand up. I'm sure I'll be fine in a day or two. I'm still pretty tired after the weekend which was brilliant, but managing to get a few things done!

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #24

Kyla said...

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

Oh Helen, I can imagine your delight to open all that loveliness, I was away for BH but managed to order some things before and just after so I do not feel like I have missed out. I have it all to open apart from one I needed to open.
I'm very tempted to the collage paper myself although i've said i'm not buying anything else now until at least October.. Will see how much will power I have under the stress of everything in house.
Thanks for sharing all that's lovely @ WOYWW & for your early visit.

You are NOT going to believe this. I couldn't link to Friday Smiles, either. Same error as I got at Julia's. I even shut my computer down and rebooted. That usually cures all ailments, but not so this time. Just thought you might like to know, because I can't believe it happened AGAIN! Glad I don't have to link to visit you at Kew!!

Marit said...

Finding goodies like that in your mailbox just makes the day, it all looks fab! I also like the journal spread - just lovely! Big hug from Holland, Marit #25

Ooh, so much exciting new stash... I have been eyeing the new Dina release - look forward to seeing some of it in action here. Love your FP page - those silhouettes are so full of expression and atmosphere. I like to break rules too.
