As requested, today we lean to the right .........................
It's either pure coincidence or someone on Blogger is having fun.
I  am sharing a specially prepared desk this week - goodies just received.

I am not one for buying goodies as I have spent enough time in 2012 trying to reduce my stash and a certain Charity Crafter benefited, as so she should.  Anyway the last thing I need is some more stash but this company sends me an email when they have new stock in and I am more than a bit partial to their Iris Folding kits, an easy card to make in front of the tv.
So I was tempted.
Then I thought I would have a look round while I was there ............ well, it seemed silly not to.

WASHI TAPE!            I'll have some of that as I really want to try it out.
Pre-cut Matting shapes.               I'll have some of that as I don't have a cutting machine.
QUILTED CARD.              I'll have one of those as I have not seen that before.
FREE bling just for ordering!  I'll definitely have some of that.

So there you go ............... thought I'd share the arrival, they are now unpacked and hopefully they will soon be used........... watch this space............... but if you don't want to then click on the WOYWW tab at the top and go look at someone else's desk.  I don't mind......... take as long as you like ............ I'll just make a few cards ...........


  1. Beautiful new goodies to play with :)
    Have a great week Happy WOYWW Heather # 62

  2. once you start looking it is so hard to just walk away isn't it. On my blog last week I had to hang my head in shame at the amount of stuff I had bought.
    Just enjoy
    Happy WOYWW I hope you have a great day

  3. Hi Christine,

    Tee hee. I'm fighting the urge to go to Hobby Lobby Saturday...... so I know that itch and sometimes it's best to just scratch it!

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs, Kay #125

  4. ooh lovely stash - I'm a terrible internet shopper, just can't help myself even when I'm supposed to be being good (let's face it, there's not really much I NEED). Had to laugh about the photo - mine do that sometimes I have no idea why, even rotating it before I upload it doesn't alwys sort it out so now I've stopped trying. The wonders of technology eh? You remarked on my lamp - it is a professional artist lamp that I bought about 10 years ago when I was still designing using a drawing board. They are a bit pricey but I have only changed the bulb once and it is on for several hours every day as I really struggle without good lighting. Here's the link if you want to check it out, but I couldn't craft without it.

    Thanks for stopping by, Cindy # 75 (I saw your other post about Les Mis - I wasn't sure it was for me but so many people have said how good it is I think I'll just have to go and see for myself)

  5. Oh yes, I'll have one of those and that's a nice thing to try. Washi tape ..hmm .. Don't have any of that. I've had to unsubscribe from a few of those sites. Just way too tempting. :) But every now then we must, right?! Happy WOYWW! Nan 5

  6. Nice to try all sorts of different things...enjoy your new stash. Washi tape is on display on my post today as well. Thanks for sharing. Happy belated WOYWW! Caro #65

  7. We cant help it you know, we have to feed our addiction to craft
    I am the same I have several washi tapes ... have I used them yet... nope!

  8. Well, sometimes a girl's just gotta shop!!!
    Looks like you shopped wisely and got some nice items!

  9. It does no harm really to splash out once in a while. sorry i'm a little late, but hope you have a lovely weekend Jill #45


I make my cards for sheer pleasure so thank you for taking the time to comment.
