WOYWW 225

Hi there friends.
Well, after a couple of times where my desk was more of a mess than anything else I thought I'd tidy it up a smidgen for your visit.....
 A nice high overshot with just a few bits out because let's be frank here; none of us visit  to see an empty desk. shall we start left?
 Bit of impulse temptation here with a couple of stamp sets from Sir Tim. And the Idea-ology buttons are something I've loved since they came out but at around £7.00 I've never got any.Well, if I told you that I paid less than I would usually pay for 1 plate of stamps for all this goodness I'm sure you will understand the temptation was too hard to resist.
 Then, this is a bit boring but I've bound and torn the edges of these papers ready to make a couple of slimline journals from them. Still trying to decide whether to go steampunk or not......
 Having fun in my journal. The page on the right is done and I've just started on the left.
 Lastly, I haven't moved yesterdays tag yet. Need to find a home for it.
Oh, and lastly, hiding behind the coffee cup, a trio of beetles. They are gorgeous images from De Stempelwinkel.

So, there is my desk this week. I bit neater than last but hopefully still interesting! Hope you all have a great day. For many more amazing workplaces head on over to Stamping Ground and join in the fun.

Neil you really do have a wonderful talent. I've tried this style before and I just can't do it. Mine just end up looking so messy when other people like yourself make amazing things.

Thanks for sharing and have a great week.

Sounds like you did really well with the price of all your goodies. I love your journal pages, the colours are beautiful. Did you do all of the ink pen on the right hand page? It is wonderful, I love the flower.
Your tag is superb.
Have a great week.

Great to grab some bargains, well done! Love your journal and the other makes you've done lately, sorry I've not been by to say so before... in answer to your question on my Ally Pally post, yes the tags were by Mark from Crafting Time... hope to have a go at something similar soon... Helen 14

Fun photos, lots of goodies and love your journal colors. I've misplaced Sir Tims stamps for Halloween and can't imagine where they'd be.
Enjoy your week, Happy WOYWW

Belinda Basson said...

I love what you did with the stamped fabric you did a step out for. I also am envious of all the stash you got for the price of less than one stamp set...I too would not have been able to resist that! #51 PS: Thanks for the visit already.

I, too, added a new Tim Holtz set to my collection this week! It's hard to resist when I find one on the clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby! You'll see a card using it on my desk this week!

What remarkable work on your journal and tag!! They are beyond exquisite.

Hope your Wednesday is absolutely wonderful!!

Tim Holtz just commissioned my cousin Art Dar to make him a ragged teddy bear using him fabric and he also asked her to create a teddy bear for the fabric manufacturer's booth...he a real guy down to art. I love a bargain...you did good. Thanks for sharing. Be well I'm happy to get in before 100...I'm #99 Carole

Oh dear! Beetles next to the coffee mug, someone call the exterminator. Yes, Frank, you are so right that no one wants to see a completely tidy desk. That made me laugh. We'll see whatever you have to show us but we like it better when you have STUFF to show us. You have some great new things there and I can relate to the Sir Tim buttons. You have the exact reason I don't own any. I shall keep an eye out for discounted ones though. Of course I will. And great impulse buy on the stamps.

What a bargain...I'd have had to get them if I'd seen them. You've spent money to save money, makes perfect sense to me! Hugs. Pam#34

Julia Dunnit said...

Yeah, takes a certain crafter to love detailed beetle stamps! Loving the daisy image in your journal, really pretty.

Nikki C said...

Those are some really kewl new stamps and I can so understand about the tim buttons that's expensive over there wow!! Your tag did you use a vintage braclet on the bottom it's so pretty. Wonders if you stamp your floor with those beetles and paint them up brown would someone try to step on them to kill lol. Happy late WOYWW Nikki 37
