WOYWW... And...

Fanny! No, I am not shouting rude words early in the morning, I am talking about... Fanny Flamingo who is my entry for the Pink Ribbon Warrior Women Blog Hop... yes, I am waffling on alarmingly again about this event but... it is important... and there is a gorgeous candy prize to be won, as well as Fanny needing a new home and all that! Click HERE to see what I am on about if you didn't see yesterday's post...


So.. Wednesday already??? Who fast forwarded October already??? You know what is coming next don't you??? Indeedily, I am about to mention the C word... no... not that C word.. the Christmas word... sad news from the Room of Stash... it appears that something has eaten all my Christmas stash... I.. erm... packed it all up when we moved and... never realised it hasn't been unpacked.. yes, I know, six months later I realise but... what I am gonna do... well, who knows... I have a few Tim stamps out already... but all my papers (including my precious Cosmo Be Good collection) and all my embellies including the cutest rusty bells I got last year... *sob* they are gone. Well, actually, they are here somewhere... it is just tracking down the exact location... you don't even want to know how many boxes we still haven't unpacked ROFL



Anyways.. waffling on about things like that isn't telling you all about the phenomenon that is the WOYWW... hosted, devised and led by Head Hopper Julia, click HERE to see what I am on about if you haven't seen this malarkey before :O)) I had a couple of Q's asked this past week... so... Anonymous asked "how do you get your gold roses sooooo gold?" This is a simples one... stamp the flower onto Grungepaper, cut it out, use Gold Dabber to colour both sides, dry, dabber again, dry and then assemble... that Gold Dabber is LUSH! And... a big ThANk YoU to AliciaR who is all the way in Australia... she left a LOVELY comment telling me she just received her September issue of Craft Stamper and had read it twice already... thanks hun for your lovely kind comment :O)) My desk this week is a bit neater than last week and a bit messier than I like it to be... but I am mid way thru a project and just finishing another... all a bit messy and a bit disorganised... but I am going to be good and tidy up before I go to bed... well, that is the plan, unlikely to happen but it makes me feel better ROFL So... there you have it... Fanny and a messy desk LOL Thanks for looking... have a goodly day... oh and... sorry I didn't get around to all the desks last week... mainly cos that Error 503 was stopping me leaving comments... booohisssss... hoping Mr Blogger gets that sorted soon, tis a pesky pest! TTFN

Love Fanny, she's the perfect pink for the Pink Ribbon Warrior Woman tribute! You keep me laughing. I'll whisper a few incantations that you'll find your holiday stamps before it's too late and you have to buy more for the stash room! lol

Fanny is Funny. And so are you. What a great way to celebrate the Ribbon Warrior Woman hop. I know she will get a lot of rave reviews and some sexy comments along the way, too. Happy WOYWW, dear Hels. You always make me laugh. And Alicia is pretty popular today. I mention her on my post, too.

Ooh Fanny is fabulous - must remember to pop back sometime to check out prev post. Loving the tag, great colours as always :-) They do say if you've not used something for 6 months you should throw it away hahahahaha - can't possibly apply to craft stuff ;-)

Rosie said...

LOVE that Fanny Flamingo, she really makes me smile. I salute you for the tidy(ish) desk because that's my idea of a good thing, though I know I'm in a minority ....

Sarah Anderson said...

lol, I've been hunting Christmas stash too, only I don't have the excuse of having moved house!

Susan Allan said...

What an amazing creation! Fanny is just the job for the blog hop.
Where did the idea spring from...very creative, Hels?

Great job with Fanny - let's hope more people join in with Pink. You must get the Christmas stash out - might end up like a little party.
Great blog and passion as always...

Kate said...

What a crock! I'm going to have to try this one. Pack all my Christmas stash up in a box, place said box beneath a lot of other boxes and "Oh no, all my precious stuff, how will I ever make my Christmas projects?" And then go out and buy all the latest supplies!!!!

** Kate **

Elliephant said...

Surely if you can't find it, then you are allowed to go and get some more. Having said that, my crafty stuff was one of the first things that I got unpacked when we moved. Think Fanny looks amazing, will check out the hop in a bit. Happy WOYWW, Love Elliefantasy xx

Gez said...

Great bird isn't she the cutest..will check out your link. :) Hope you find your Christmassy stash..xx

Morti said...

I'm having the service unavailable error coming up so I'll boohiss with you on that one! Remind me to send you a poem wot I wrote about the Boxing Fairy - I'm sure you'll appreciate it in your current predicament!!! Love Ms F Flamingo.....

Twiglet said...

Love Miss Funny Fanny!! I think I might have to make a flamingo from one of my big pink socks!!

whyducks said...

I think Fanny should live at your house, cute funny and pink. Who does that remind you of? I think it was a self portrait!

Kalyber said...

I spy with my little eye a whole load of distress inks and I'm green. Love Fanny such a nice touch. TFS

The Crafty Goat Girl said...

Hi Hels, well Fanny is just fabulous! Really made me chuckle, hugs Heidi xx

Doone said...

who would deny that the love fanny? only those who say they don't like pussies either...

odd folk...

Carolynne said...

Love Fanny..... Hope you find your missing stash soon......or you could just go out and buy some more.... then you would probably find it

xx

Carola Bartz said...

I love that tag on your desk, gorgeous colors!!!

Ohhh Snap said...

Careful about unpacking though, it seems everytime I unpack the last box I wind up moving again. Hope you find your Christmas stash soon!

Lovely workspace :D

JoZart said...

No need to tidy up there at all... lovely just as it is. Love your Fanny Flamingo... just go easy feeding her prawns to keep her pink.... could get a bit niffy there!
JoZarty x

voodoo vixen said...

Well Hels, there is nothing else for it... you'll just have to unpack the other boxes and find the missing items!

Linda Ledbetter said...

I love Fanny Flamingo. LOVE HER!

Alisonw30 said...

Wow, love the flamingo! Isn't it annoying when you lose stuff? Happens to me all the time. Try under the stairs, that's where I found my Christmas stuff. I also found the mini toothpaste I bought for my hols and couldn't find amongst my craft magazines, obvious place for it really, lol!

Alison (no 62) x

Alix said...

oh my...that is one fabby fanny...and you don't get to say that everday!!! ;0)

lisa said...

I hate losing stuff, it's so annoying isn't it. It'll turn up in July when you're not looking for it!!
Like the look of that tag taking shape on your desk.

Christine said...

Chrissie said...

Oooh! I fancy some of those Fragments... I just bought a whole heap of alcohol inks and I fancy having a go with some of those!
Chrissie

Paula Gale said...
