WOYWW 163

Another wet and windy Wednesday is upon us (okay, so it's pretty early in the am and I'm assuming that's how the weather's gonna be when I get up but, let's face it, based on recent experience the odds are in my favour! :lol:) and it's time to brighten up your day by taking a spin around crafty desks the world over!

Not much to share on my desk I am afraid. I have actually just finished up a card but seeing as it's a DT one, I can't really share it with you just yet. Darn.

So instead, to add a bit of interest to this week's photo, I've dumped on my desk a few pretty new craft purchases for you to nosey at:


A bunch of U-Mount, to mount more of my ever-increasing stack of Sweet Pea Stamps. A set of Andy Skinner stamps, a funky new Sizzix stamp and emboss set, and another Sizzix die, and a few random packs of embellies.

I do also have something else to share with you this week, although it's not something tangible that can sit on my desk. Instead, it's some exciting news. I've actually known for a while but things were a bit too crazy busy last week for me to get chance to blog about it so I thought I'd do it today instead...

I've been invited to join the Design Team at the One Stitch at a Time challenge blog. :D

I looooove Stitchy Bear digi stamps (you may have seen me wittering on about them previously on this blog) and am thrilled to bits to join such a friendly, creative team - and to get to play even more with these fab images! So expect to see plenty more of Stitchy Bear's images cropping up on my blog.

That's it from me. My bed beckons and it's a busy day tomorrow as I've a good friend and her two little ones coming to stay for a couple of days... so there's gonna be 4 kids aged 3 and under in the house! Eeep! :)

Oh my lordy, I wish I could sit at your desk and just peruse all these lovelies! I'm not that experienced with Paper Arts yet, but I am amazed at what's out there for us to enjoy.

Love all the goodies. I like shopping and the best part is when you get home and you get to look at it. Such crafty goodness is bound for those things.

Congrats on the DT. I am always impressed when I meet people on DTs. I would love to do it one day. Do keep us posted on all the great creations you make while on the DT.

Have fun with your guests.

I love, love, love all the goodies you have here!!!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Hmm... I think your bed is beckoning to me too! Love the pile of goodies on your desk. I was dying to see what die you got but alas, it is turned upside down. I got a new one myself, not on my blog post today though. It is to make a circle flip it card. I can't wait to try it but I have so many other new goodies (that I did put on my blog) that I have no idea where to start! Do you have that when you have a bunch of new stuff to play with?

Congrats on being on the new design team! Have lots of fun with that!
