WOYWW 205 - the extended version......


Good morning folks
Here we are again sharing workplaces and creative stuff as per Julia's request. All the details for this fascinating blog hop can be found over at Stamping Ground and here is my little world......before we get to my desk, look at these new additions to my studio, over a meter tall each and with adjustable shelves so perfect to customise the height I could not leave these at the boot fair on Sunday
 My desk is busy with a few things as usual. I sometimes think it must be nice to do one thing at a time, I just can't seem to do that!
 So, I've been playing in my sketchbook and journal. Jury is still out on these guys, but I kinda like them, sometimes the pen doesn't seem to do what you think it should....
 These bingo tiles are another bootfair bargain, I was so thrilled to pick up this set, almost 100 markers! Just peeking out you can see part of my daughter's fashion; I've been roped in to help a bit.
 Working on one of my books too, this is with Distress Paints, masks and it's coming along nicely.
 Military buttons (bootfair) and paints.
 And a recent tag too all make up my creative corner this week...

Hope you are having as much creative fun as I am!

Absolutely wonderful projects and bootfair finds. I am starting to think even your rubbish would be artistic! I love the dressform stamp you have used on the tag. I got obsessed with a stamp very similar last week. The tag is lovely.

G'day Neil
I usually don't get around for WOYWW till Friday as when Julia posts the link I am at work in the evening here in Oz. My day off isn't till Friday then but I'm home sick all this week so here I am just one day late(I couldn't type yesterday due to sore hands and why I am home!!). Great scores from the boot fair...we never have those sort of things here in Humpty Doo (Northern Australia) and if we did there wouldn't be any cool stuff like what you have!! Great art works there too Neil
hugs

Fabulous finds at the boot sales (I always loved going to those), those shelves are wonderful. Your desk is always a mass of lovely looking crafty stuff, the journal looks great.

Alison Wade said...

Happy Very Belated WOYWW. Ooh, a boot fair. I used to go to them all the time when I lived in the Midlands, but would have to drive a fair distance to go to one now, and we all know that you have to get up early to get the best bargains! I love the bingo stash - and so many other wonderful projects on your desk. Ali x #25

Hi Neil,

Wow - lots of cool stuff here today. I like the two guys; two very different styles of dress but drawn so perfectly!

I'm impressed with all the good buys you found at the boot fair (I'm supposing that like a yard sale?). Those shelves are very cool and I see you've made good use of them already!

I knew it wouldn't be before Saturday that I'd get around to everyone but here it is Sunday and I'm just getting started. Thanks for visiting me already!

Happy WOYWW
