WOYWW 190

Morning all.
Time for "deskville" once more. Hosted as ever by Julia at Stamping Ground HERE
Here is my world this week.
 Of course; i should share what I have to go through to take these photos for your delectation and delight....

 My desk is reasonably tidy this week. I've been making some simple tags showing my new masks off. Everything else that is for DT or more is packed away.
 I love my masks!
 Then there's my case of dreams, holder of my myriad journalling pens and potions.....

And back to my masks.
So there you have myt world this week. I hope you have a fun and creative week too.

Your dream case is amazingly pretty. I love it!

I'm always impressed by people who can "do" distressing and so on, it's just a style I find really tricky!

Great looking tags and love your masks too but haven't found them here! Dream box is awesome! I feel for you having to walk in the snow to get to your desk. It's worth it though! Have a great week. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #35

Your Case of Dreams is a treasure, just fabulous effects. The stencils are so perfect for the undersea scenes too.

Your case of dreams is gorgeous Neil and so are your new masks - well done! Saw them over at the Craft Barn and I bet they are selling well...... Anne x #57

BetteK said...

You know I find I actually hold my breath whilst waiting for your blog to open in sheer anticipation of what I am going to see and today was no disappointment (but then it never is!!!) First picture is simply perfect as I am a total *S*N*O*W* freak and was greeted with a view of your garden full of the white stuff :)
Then your box of DREAMS has me gasping ... I just LOVE LOVE LOVE it and would give an arm and a leg to own something like that. Note I said own and not create ... way beyond my very limited capabilities.
Meant to pop along in the week and say CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS on your own range of masks ... well done indeed!
Oh and a bit random but I opened my copy of the Radio Times last week and found YOU inside in full glorious technicolour ... eventually the penny dropped that it wasn't you at all but your look-a-likey JAMES DYSON ... yes, he of vaccuum fame! Happy WOYWW'ing! D x #69

Francesca said...

I'm amazed at how much snow you still have. her it has all gone, but I', by the Sea so salt air does help. Your tags look great with the new masks, hope to get mine on Sunday. See you then. Love francesca

Yikes! We have seen very little snow this year and generally are buried under several feet. I guess this is my lucky year!!! Lovely projects-LOVE you Dreams project!

Beautiful snow picture, we've had very little moisture this year, staying in below zero with high winds. Miserable out.
Thanks for stopping by, love your tags and the great colors. I've a few masks I want to try.
Enjoy WOYWW and have a fun week

The snow scene looks wonderful. Your garden under the blanket of snow looks great too.
I always wondered how far away the art studio was from the house.

Your Case of Dreams is wonderful. What a great idea.! You do such a greqat job on this type of art...I am in awe of your talents.

I'm not surprised you like masks when what you create with them is so amazing. Really gorgeous artwork. And I love your first photo. It could so easily be a vintage snap. Just beautiful.

Thank you so much for visiting and being lovely.

The snow looks so lovely covering the bushes and trees. And now I'm humming 'Under the Sea'. Those tags are too cute - the sea theme is one of my favorites.
