WOYWW... Pressies...

... Cor blimey, Wednesday already and I am the first to admit that this past week has passed by ever so quickly and, again, I have got absolutely nothing creative to show you. It has been one of those horrible weeks so I do apologise for not being able to visit many of the wonderful peeps that join in the phenomenon that is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday... which, BTW, if you haven't happened across before, it a mahooosive desk hop around the crafty bloggers of the world and is hosted by Julia... for all the deets and info etc, CLICK HERE and you will be whizzed off on the back of a big umbrella (yep...raining outside) to her blog.



So... my desk this week. Nothing creative apart from my unfinished workshop canvas from Sunday's class *more of that tomorrow though*. But... lots of goodies to spy... starting with a rubber pressie from lovely Caz, a set of Studio 490 stamps that I had been oggling for yonks... bless her, what a kind friend she is (more about that tomorrow too). Also featuring is a gorgeous set of Basic Grey papers and some tissue flowers to match from Ellen... all the way from America (along with the requisite Cheesy Chester Cheeto's, ooh and some delish Bath & Body Works smellies and Dove choccy for Grim) Check out that little baggie with the green looking things in.... those are some little lampposts (they are for model railways I think) which will be perfect for altering... cuteness or what! And then you will see a Trinket Case, which is a gift from Wendy... I have been longing for one of these for about 382 years... I haven't filled it up yet... am too busy stroking it! So... a big and very heartfelt thank you to my lovely friends who really know how to pick me up and make me smile big. You know what? I am so lucky and I really do appreciate that a blinking good friend is someone to hold onto and cherish... to me, my friends are my family (I shall stop now before I start blubbing lol)


You may have spied something else rubbery sitting there on the desk... still uninked too! AlfieCat is ever such a clever little fella and he sent me off on Sunday morning with a strict instruction to get some of the new Tim stamps from him, for me, for Mother's Day. Now, I know it isn't til March 18th (UK) but he is such an understanding little furbaby, he knew I would have to have them straight away.... clever puddytat eh? Oh and... there's another set of Tim stamps that fell into my basket... well, they are the ones with the train on... I couldn't not get those now could I? I have a little project in mind for them that I am hoping to be able to crack on with later today... Actually, I did stand there with all of the new sets in my inkymits and found it really hard to chose... so I went for the words (from Alf) and the train (from me lol) but still have the others on my wishlist (especially those diddy ones, I love the diddy ones... oh and the hot air balloon one... need that one too!)

Anyways... tis late... so it is, as Zebedee used to say.... Time for Bed! Thanks for looking... I promise to be a bit more chatty this week and make sure I get around to see lots of you WOYWW-er's... oh and to have something creative to show you soon too! Like tomorrow! TTFN

Hi there, I'm up at silly o clock so wandering around a bit and thought I'd say hi. I have the balloon set of Tim's and love it. I tossed for it or the train and the train lost (for now) I hope you have a good and creative week.

Sarah said...

Fab trinket box but methinks you may need a set of ten for your Idea-ology stash!!! Loving the new rubber - hope it will fire up your mojo and transport you back into a much inkier, nicer week and crafty mood. It's OK to be knackered after all the workshops and all your C&C stuff - doing nowt is also an art (learning that myself). Take care of yourself as well as the clean room!

Thanks for sharing with WOYWW? Sarah

CraftygasheadZo said...

Look at those goodies! Great space too. Take care, enjoy this WOYWW & I'm off to snoop some more! Wonder how many I'll get round today? Zo xx 60

Julia Dunnit said...

Ok, I get the delish pressies, and am a bit jelly, but you do deserve them. I don't see Cheetos, but I don't know what I'm looking for actually! But what I do see is a large jar full of clear fluid....are you preserving something???!!!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I realize I am really late getting here, especially since I am #2. But I have had a terrible time keeping my computer running today. Seems it wants to shut down after I visit one blog.

Alfie cat is much nicer than Bleubeard. Now thoughtful of him. Of course, Mother's Day in the US isn't until May, so he may have a bit of time. Lucky YOU!!

Happy WOYWW.

Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation leans on the doorbell.Talk to a man about himself and he will listen for hours Teaching English

MaggieC said...

Now I wonder if our two dogs would like to give me some crafting goodies for Mothering Sunday. I suspect I might not get away with that idea. Sorry I am so late getting round this week, in spite of being No 8. The garden is starting to take time to prepare everything, a different sort of crafting, but no broadband in the greenhouse. Have a good week. xx Maggie #8

Joynana said...
