WOYWW # 212

Hi Everyone...

Its Wednesday again - and it is my favourite time of the week cos it kick starts my mojo which seems to turn itself off on Mondays & Tuesdays...

I have been a busy little bee in other ways though - supplied all of my creations [105] to my cousin so he can put them in his shop for me - am hoping they sell well so I can stock up on more goodies recoup some of the costs involved with this fantastic all consuming hobby!!!

Just before we get to my little bit of desk - why not pop over to see  something sensational
- my sisters blog - Cathy's card spot - she has the art of using butterflies well and truly covered...

Now - my desk at the moment - I feel like I cheat cos I move everything out from a pile and spread it out for the photo's...

A few bits and pieces going on...
This free paper was stuck in the middle of a pile of books - so I thought I would liberate it and see what happens...

Xmas stuff still hanging around - I tested my dies on the old traditional red & green but ended up making cream and pink poinsettia cards - I guess these will get used up eventually... the xmas stuff is sitting on top of some card stock pads I grabbed from an arty shop called RIOT - reduced from $7.99 to $4.99 - its not suitable for a card base but it can go through a die machine and decorate a card no probs...

This is some of my "colour" stash - Twinkling H20's and metallic paints - H20's are in the drawers of my carousel too, some Kindyglitz and some Mica Powders - that I have never put to use!!

This is my bling drawer - both adhesive & non-adhesive - you can never have enough of this stuff...

And the actual project in progress right now - using my arboscello tree and some distressed card - still thinking...... hang on - there are no chocolates - what is the world coming to???
If you would like to visit creative desks around the globe pop on over to Stamping Ground where Julia hosts the very best blog hop in the world....
Thanks for stopping by... Mxx


  1. No one care if you cheat for your photos. don't think you can ever make back what you have spent over the years. Great desk. Francesca #47

  2. Hi Mo, looks like some interesting projects in the making here! Thanks for the sweet comment awww, and thanks for lending me your stuff to:) Cathy xx

  3. Mica powders are great! Send them down my way if they need a new home :)
    There's often a kookaburra in the garden as we have (suburban) bush at the end of the street. They usually only laugh if there's a pack of them up in the trees and then they make a racket!
    Thanks for stopping by and for your kind words re. those blue pages. Have a good week,

  5. hi there Maudieroff, ah so right about what we spend really have to keep and eye on it dont we... thankfully having most of it online means I see it (plus mark it off)when my card bill comes in and check it regularly so know.. kind of helps :D

  8. I'm glad that you decided to spread everything out. Now, we can see all those goodies. Man, I really need a bling drawer. Thanks for stopping by. #5

  9. SUCH a tidy space. Never been able to master that yet and don't think I ever will *sighs*.

    Thank you for your kind comments on the canvas, I am pleased with the way it's looking so far, it's going to be part of a set of four and if the others turn out as good as this one is looking I'll be thrilled. i am going to post the finished piece on my blog and if I remember link it up next week so you all can see.

    Thanks for dropping by and apologies for the late visit.

  10. Good luck with the selling and making a few pennies so you can buy more! Love that you have everything organised into cubbies and drawers, my type of organising!! No chocolates? Why you not got chocolates? I am feeling deprived now... ;) Annette #6

  11. Hi Maureen, good luck with the selling..I too use the money I make from selling to buy more goodies :) I want to see what happens with the tree. Love your sister's blog. Cx #126

  12. Hi Maureen, thanks for popping in to visit me today Lots of great crafty goodies to see on your desk and if you'll pardon the expression, in your drawers lol. Love the twinkling H20's must blow the dust off mine and have a play. Hope you make make plenty of money from your creations to buy more goodies.
    Happy art making
    Hugs Lottie #10

  13. You have to get those mica powders out and start playing with them! Hope you manage to sell lots (and buy more!). I've used a poinsettia die with parchment paper (vellum) and they look gorgeous. Happy late WOYWW. Pam#28

  14. A bling drawer? (Blimey, I sound like Miss Havisham there!) Surely every girl needs one of those...can I confess that I have several?! Considering I am fairly understated in my appearance, I do have an awful weakness for BLING, especially in earrings. I love em. The bigger and blingier the better!
    Hugs. LLJ 31 xx

  15. G'day maureen
    thanks for dropping by my blog for WOYWW. I'm always running late getting around to others desks sorry. Everytime I see your carousel I want to come and steal it LOL. Did you go to the Brissie Paper craft and Stamoing Expo...I did and loved it!!! Love seeing all your goodies and good luck with the card sales

  16. Your cards look good.Loads happening on your desk. Yes scrap booking/paper crafting is an expensive hobby.Still, it's fun, and keeops us happy.I see it as saving in doctor's bills because when not crafting we may be very unhappy.
    Thanks for sweet comment on my flowers.
