WOYWW 261

Hi All - a bit of an anticlimax after last week's anniversary excitement. It's been half term holiday for schools here, so DH was home for a week, which meant I didn't get to spend much time at my desk.

He did take me for a trip one afternoon, to Hobbycraft, where I spent a birthday gift voucher (plus a teensy bit more!!) So this is how my desk looks tonight. I can't wait to try out all the new lovelies.


On the WOYWW anniversary front, I've just finished the last three ATCs (last minute arrangements) and will stick them in the post tomorrow.  Thanks to everyone who sent me one - I'll post pics next Wed, plus how I end up storing them. There really are some talented, generous crafters out there!

I hope to catch you all over at Julia's party time. If you don't know about this, click the WOYWW button on my side bar - careful, it's addictive!!

Love for now, and have a great week.

Chris xx

  4. Hi Chris! I'm not familiar with HobbyCrafts--but I'm totally in love with three of those stamps: the Russian doll (I'm a Russian nesting doll nut), the sewing machine and the cupcake stand. Adorable!! Now I'm on a mission to find those. Hugs and Happy WOYWW #261 EatWriteDreamStitch.blogspot.com

  17. Hi Chris,

    Hmm, I'll need to check for alphabet dies -- those are very cool. I can tell you had a great time spending your gift certificate (and what is it about always finding too much?!?).

    Thanks for your visit already. I'm hoping to at least get most of my visiting done today and tomorrow!

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Hugs, Kay (39)

  19. A trip to Hobbycraft to spend a gift voucher sounds wonderful! And yes, it would be hard not to spend more than the voucher!
    Happy WOYWW!

  28. I don't know about Hobbycraft if it sells supplies then I would love to go but they aren't here in Australia. You have a wonderful collection of supplies, have fun using them. Sorry I am getting around the desks really late this week, not normally me. We have had a long weekend here for the queens birthday and opening of the ski season, we are now in winter.

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda
    Belated WOYWW greetings

  29. Hello Chris. I love that chandelier stamp and the seedhead - gorgeous. Those alphabet dies are great, too. Incredibly useful!! Thanks for visiting this week, and HUGE apologies for taking all week to get back to folk!
    Thanks for your prayers. John is still far from well, and the GP has even called in on his day off today!! However, he feels John is improving, and trusts that the next set of bloods will show that fact. It seems to have gone on for a LONG time. But, I know that Father God is caring for us in it all, I seeHis hand in so much around me.
    Take care.
    God bless.
