WOYW 673

 Welcome to another week's WOYWW  -another week has flown by, and not a jot of crafting!Not for any particular reason, it just didn't happen!  

I took some side on views of the boxes from last week; piles and piles of stuff everywhere !

and the other side of the room - more piles of stuff!  

Saturday at Kew was gorgeous -  and I did more lying down photography on the dry grass!

Sorry I don't have anything more exciting to share this week - perhaps next time (new goodies on the way so there is every chance!)

 I hope you all had a good Easter break - I got out for a couple of days out and now it's time for WOYWW again

Needless to say none of the re-organising got done!  

whilst   I was sat catching up on some tv programmes I'd recorded I took a couple of photos around me...

the wooden Ikea boxes against the wall (they line the wall and go behind the big square boxes which hold my Paperartsy stamps)  hold most of my wooden stamps 

you can see how small the area I have to work in is! the size of the craft mat...

I made another birthday card for a May birthday...
the background was done months ago for something else that didn't get used and I just added some die cut flowers  

as I say, I had 2 mornings out - Friday I went to Hampton Court to see the tulip festival -  pics here 

and Saturday of course, was Kew  pics here 

 I shared some photos on FB whilst I was at each  but these may tempt you to see more!

Happy WOYWW

 Welcome deskers, we find ourselves at Wednesday again.  Heading to Julia's for WOYWW again to share our crafty spaces...

I've made a birthday card using a couple of the new Paperartsy mini stamps I got last week

the friend this is destined for won't see this despite being a crafter so I feel fairly safe to share it here

I took another desk (floor) shot this week too, you can see the new stamps haven't been put away (indeed, the storage for the Minis is full so I will need to re-organise that...)

there might be time (but probably not inclination) over the forthcoming Easter weekend to do something about that!  I am certainly looking forward to my long weekend

Last week's Kew trip next  - here  

For those of you whose desks I can't visit before work, it will be evening as we have a work training day out of the office so won't be getting a normal lunch break; so I'll see you soon!

Happy WOYWW.

 The weeks keep on rising, so quickly!  week 670 of this fabulous desk hop run by Julia at the Stamping Ground - come join us! 

For the first time in a while, I have new goodies to share   -  Last week Paperartsy had some more new releases and whilst the first couple of designers offerings weren't really my style, 

I adored the mini stamps that originally started in their Ink and theDog range and these latest designs, plus small stencils, shouted at me

and promptly jumped into my basket, landing on the doormat on Tuesday
I pulled out my A5 sized journal at the weekend, not really knowing what to do - but the page on the left was already started, I'd played with the big stencil, and just doodled some outlines to it and added a bit of a stencilled background

the page on the right, the pink paint was a mop up from something or other - so long ago I have no idea what and I stencilled some flowers (using Distress Oxide inks)  on top, intending to come back and add to it ...
maybe next week!  

it's been a long time since I worked in this journal, rather than the larger multi surfaced Dina Wakley journals  and it was quite fun.

Just time to add the links to last weekend's trip to Kew, it was cold, such a contrast to the warmth of the previous week but still sunny (mostly)
catch the blossom here 
sneak peak for you..

see you soon!  happy WOYWW
