WOYWW142

This fun Wednesday get-together brought to us by Julia over at Stamping Ground is growing ever more popular!  It's mid-morning here on the west coast of the US and there are over a hundred workdesks linked already from all over the world!  Here is mine:


I actually took the picture last evening so I could put things away and start playing with my stuff.  I know I do seem to be showing lots of new goodies and, no, my great-uncle Fergus LeRoy did not pass away and leave me lots of money.  You online stampers are totally to blame for this!  I have been swept away by all the beautiful cards using die cuts and embossing and so I was unable to avoid getting into all that, hence the recent Cuttlebug, etc. purchases.  I have also been blown away by most things from Papertrey Ink and so, wah-hoo, that is what you see in the above picture.  Just a couple, four stamp sets, some dies, some paper ...

... as far as I know, my husband does not read my blog.  Ahem.

(I just noticed that the picture shows two cards on the windowsill that the grandboys made while they were just here.  I wish you could see, in person, the two of them working away so happily.  I suppose they will outgrow it soon, but I'm cherishing it while it lasts!)

Okay, I've got ladies lunch today, but I hope to be back later with my other favorite Wednesday challenge, maybe, hopefully, using some of my new toys.  Please do check out the Stamping Ground site!  And, as always, thanks for stopping by!  Leave a note so I know you were here if you have a minute.

Enjoy!

Amazing space you have, my hubby does not read my blog (I hope). I don't think I could spend more than I do now but Tim Holtz is totally my downfall......Regards, Anne Rx #100

I'm in love with dies and embossing folders too, started off with a couple, now have a drawer full and running out of room in there for them! Love the PTI goodies but won't pay the price for them!!!! If I can't use a coupon I don't buy it, lol!!

Looks like lots of fun and interesting items.
I clicked on your "playhouse". Oh my! I bet you have lots of fun in there. We will be sixty in a couple of years and plan to downsize our house and garden when we retire. Your scrappy shed looks like such a great solution to the downsizing dilemna of where to put all the scrappy, creative stuff!

I know exactly what you mean!!!! WOYWW has my wish list growing and growing. And sometimes I go right from a blog to a shopping site. It is so bad, but I'm getting sure wonderful goodies!!!

Your crafting place is awesome, and so well organised. You never know, your grandsons will probably cherish this time with you among their best memories in the future. They will probably carry on with their creative side in some way. Have a wonderful time playing with all your new stash, and beware, husbands do read our blogs. xx Maggie #11
