WOYWW #255..I did a bit of shopping...


It's Wednesday, so time for WOYWW..join in the fun over at Julia's blog Stamping Ground and show us your desk :)

I would like to start by saying a big thank you to all the visitors from WOYWW last week who gave me lots of positive feedback on my ATC's and advice. It is greatly appreciated.

I am now working on the 'real ones' for the WOYWW exchange.

So..what is on my desk..well a whole heap of I have been feeling a bit jealous of all these fab craft fair outings you have all been going on I decided to do a bit of sale stamp will be my last haul for several months..I have to stop!! You can also see my zebra scissors, my fitbit, some tape and other bits and bobs.

At the top left of my desk, you can see my fun stack of 6 items for $5 from the Target $1 spot. I bought some stencils, a post-it pad, some cute button magnets, a pack of notebooks, some ribbon and a pack of alpha stickers.

All over the rest of my cutting mat are my new stamps that were all on sale at Joann's for no more than $3 an item - some of them were $1 too good to resist. Right at the front is a Stampendous scene stamp that I have wanted for several years, I have a magazine article with some great ideas how to use it, but it's always been too pricey. The feather set is by Technique Tuesday and I have also wanted that for some time.

All justified in my head..time to put my wallet away and get crafting methinks!

As ever here is a little fun make for you WOYWWers..I used an aquabrush and some gelatos to get the watercolour streaks and then stamped over it with a free stamp I got from a magazine that my MIL sent me. The sentiment is by Stampin' Up.

Happy WOYWW everyone..I'll visit you all after work.

  11. Now I'm jealous. You got some incredible bargains at JoAnns. Ours doesn't have clear stamps, just a few wooden ones and they are VERY expensive.

    Thanks for stopping by my place on Wednesday. Sorry I'm late. Guess I partied too hard this week (grin). Belated WOYWW wishes from # 9.
