Christmas has been packed away for another year, and I would say that all is clean and tidy... but that would be a big fat fib!  I don't make New Year Resolutions but once again I will ..just possibly... do a bit of sorting/clearing/tidying at some stage

But -  it's Happy Desk Day - time to share craft workspaces for WOYWW; linking at Julia's as always
I have no crafting to show for my week - but have some enabling for you (obviously!)
a few more Paperartsy goodies from their week of releases.

Really looking forward to playing with these - they only arrived Tuesday - just in time for a starring role - and it's just as well they did or my post would have been very sparse.

I had a fabulous visit to Kew last Saturday - the weather was perfect and I got some great photos 

 the sun came out and really highlighted the grasses

and I can't resist the grevillea in the Princess of Wales glasshouse

Looking forward to visiting your desks where I am sure you'll have been much more productive!

Well, I am not very productive but hope to be soon. Thanks for the enabling - now did I get that Zinni or not?
Lovely grasses photo you are sharing with us.
Hugs, Neet xx

If you count getting up at a omgoclock on a day off , I’d say you’ve been really productive; I don’t know how you manage to repeat the action so frequently! Getting a Christmas put away and going back to work is enough, if you ask me! I’m liking the look of all the purchases and am cross with you for showing me!

Caro said...

Lovely stamps and stencils there - good enabling! Love the photos from Kew. Happy WOYWW. Hope you have a lovely week. With love and God Bless, Caro xxx (#11)

Glenda said...

Hi Helen, there have been some fab stamps from Paper Arty, I agree, but I'm trying to be good and not get any, lol. Time will tell. Loved the Kew photos, some beautiful shots in there. You're as skilled with the camera as with your crafting. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #6 X

Hi Helen, it wouldn't be you if your floor was clear, even after Christmas has been put away. Love the look of your new goodies, especially that weird wee creature. Over the holidays, I've really enjoyed your photos from Kew - in fact, I enjoy them all year round. All the best for 2020. Hugs, Elizabeth x #18

Anne said...

Love new goodies. I may have some to share next week! Anne X 22

HI Helen, the botanical shots are just fabulous. ( even more so when your brain whispers its January, and it snowed here last night haha) :) fun new loot too. ~Stacy #23

Diana Taylor said...

I love the new stamps - the vintage style text set looks fab but I must be strong! Hope you have loads of fun trying them out - I'm off to Kew now!

No resolutions for me either but I am going to try to send out at least one card a week. I make so many and rarely send them. I know my friends and family will enjoy them. Dorlene #24

Hi Helen, no productivity what so ever, but I am hoping to start soon. Is one of your lovely stamps a little mouse? Looking forward to seeing what you do with them. x Angela #27

Ooh, lovely new goodies - those ESN stamps are just gorgeous, aren't they? Have fun playing when you get some time. Will definitely to Kew (well, your post about Kew) to check out the grasses... well tempted!
