WOYWW 70

Hello everyone!  I am here again to show off my desk for the WOYWW travels - if you want to join in the fun pop over to Julia's and play along with us (I must warn you though it's very addictive!).  I managed about 70 desks last week - thought I would manage more but then I did spend two full days at Artisan - had a fabulous time (see piccy below) and would just like to say another big hello to everyone I met there on the day.  I did seven classes and enjoyed every single one of them - I came home all inspired but then we threw a little party for Benjamin on the evening (he is 6 next week) so couldn't get crafting until Sunday - when it poured down so I just had to stay in really didn't I!  I did manage a bit of crafting - mainly painting (see other picture below) but I was also reading a really good book so spent a few hours finishing that off too.  All in all a rather fun packed weekend!

Here are the goodies I treated myself to at Artisan (I so wasn't going to spend any money but then we all knew that that wouldn't last really didn't we!!)

Those three packs of stamps at the front only cost £3.55 each!  bargain - just had to have them, got some more metal and the tools, some purple texture paint, some inca gold paint and some precious metal colour from Paperartsy - not used the precious metal colour yet but Morag has some so I thought I ought to get some too - don't want to miss out do I!  That little birdcage is just the cutest little thing - can't wait to make it up and I also got some Deko Ice and a metallic alcohol ink from the Altered Element.  Mushroom and Sewing stamps just couldn't be walked passed without a squeal of delight and a quick purchase - the only thing I have used out of all this at the moment is the purple paint (got up a 5.15am on Sunday morning to play with that!) and the inca gold - fabulous stuff.

And here is what is on my proper workdesk this fine day:
The pirate ship has been repainted as I didnt like it's original colour, the suitcases have finally been painted too!!  obviously they haven't been finished but you can't have everything!  will be changing the straps on the blue one it's just all a bit experimental at the moment but the inca gold paint is on the black case and I think that that will go on the blue one too - just need to tone down the blue first.  Those cute little witches boots have just been sewn up this morning (today being Tuesday), they are made out of calico and I am just waiting for them to dry and then will put another coat on them and then tomorrow (being Wednesday) should hopefully finish the cutest little handbag you have ever seen!  Will post pictures later this week but this is going to be my "October" bag all ready for Halloween.

Thanks for looking - am off to spy on every else's desks now!  Oh and I am no further forward with the house or the mail box just yet but then you didn't really think that I would be did you???

You got to me before I got to you. Thanks. Now to your WOYWW - great pictures - lovely stash from Artisan and lucky you doing 7 classes. Can see you spent a lot with Leandra - you don't by any chance go on the ArstyCrafty weekends do you?

Love the pirate ship - wonder how it will end up?

Gosh I have chatted that much I can't remember what else there was and there was so much. Enjoy your goodies anyway.

Yummy stamps great price. The brushes, I use them often, the stumpy ones give a soft finish the long ones if I want to add a dash here and there. nnalorac.xx 62

Hello *lot of mad waving back at you* would have done so on the day but as you know I was distraught by all the pink!- the only colour I don't like, teach me to look where I'm sitting next time. Wasn't it lots of fun though - can't believe you didn't recognse yourself in the front left of the picture - dazzled by our hallowed instructor no doubt ;)

ohooo witches feet, now that is scarrry!
Your ship and cases look great, never tried that yet, but have seen the cases to buy, but not the ship...I've decide to re-do the freebie digi as I thought it looked a bit rushed! (It's the same, but different) Have a great woyww!!
