So I couldn't link my post until Friday evening. This is a pile of stash which mostly came in the post while I was away and a few bits I bought in Trago Mills including a HUGE tub of white gesso which took me ages to find because I was expecting it to be the same as the black gesso and couldn't understand why there wasn't any - then eventually after looking, going away and looking again I finally looked down and saw the HUGE tubs! Happy me, it was so cheap to buy that size! Most of my new goodies are dies, dies and stamp sets, stamp and embossing folder sets and a bird Bigz die and embossing folder set and these were something like 60% or more off from Sizzix. Then you might spot the WR Memory Keepers envelope punch tool, which took me an extremely long time to extract from the packaging and I haven't tried it yet! I also bought some speech bubble dies from Trago, some 12" x 12" plain cardstock and I can't think what else.
So here is my desk view 1, and you can actually see the wood (not real wood)! In the centre is my altered dictionary with the new page underway for The Alpha project at the Craft Barn, and next to that on the left is a pile of stamps waiting to be put away. Next to that is a Really Useful box (you can't see it) in which I have put any coloured images that are ready to use or ready to cut out, and a few odd die cuts. On top of the box is a folder with Unity stamps in it, some are for the dictionary page. On the right is a pile of images ready for colouring, not sure why because I put a load away - the box must be full!
Cutting corner, see the domimoes? I bought them in a charity shop for £2.50 and got them out to see if I could make a domino book but the images I had printed were too large and I didn't want to make them teenie tiny so made them into a pirate card, another day for a domino book!
What is WOYWW all about? Well it is a day a week that you can share your space and visit and nosy round a heap of other desks all thanks to the lovely Julia Dunnit at The Stamping Ground!
When I first started on this I remarked I would never get round everyone and was advised that the thing to do was to visit all the people who's number ended the same as yours, so if you are number 155 visit all the numbers ending in 5, then any favourites and additional ones if you have the time.
Then I saw someone comment that they visit the first 20 only and anyone who visits them. Could you miss out on a lot if you do that? I bet most people get there in roughly the same order, I know I am usually last or close to it!
I could have posted very early indeed, I was up late last night, it took hours to make the pirate card, then I needed to blog it then it was too late to bother with WOYWW! I gave the card to Richard for his birthday tomorrow, I hope he likes it. I realised the treasure map fold up was the perfect place to put his birthday money!
