It has been along time since I last showed my messy desk but today we are at home (now there's a surprise!)and I hope I can get to visit lots of desks today at WOYWW via our lovely host Julia's Stamping Ground blog.
I think I may have said this before but I don't like to show my desk without being sure that I can return visits and when we are at our caravan now we hardly ever get a signal - not even for phoning.
So what is on my desk?
A lot going on - trying to cram as much crafting as I can into the short time we are at home this week, as well as taking riverside walks with hubby and looking after our grandchildren after school while their Dad is on a course.
A page with lots of watery Brushos that I have started to stamp into.
Stencils to be used on the left, stamps to the back. On the right is another page in my A5 journal and a master board sheet to be cut up etc.
As you can see from the back of my desk things are getting a bit wobbly!
Last Saturday I was lucky enough to visit Ally Pally (Helen has far more photos than I have so take a peek here)
It was great to be in such an amazing building and even better to meet up with blog friends
Helen(Stamping by H), Brenda(Bumblebees and Butterflies), Nikki(Addicted to Art) and Julie Ann Lee(magpieheaven)It's a bit blurry as I think I was laughing at the time!!
Thanks ladies for the teasing about my never being home!!It was great to see you!(err…thanks to my not being at home!!!)
Alexandra Palace(Wikipedia link here) is built on a hill overlooking London with a big park nearby. It was built for the use of the local residents and was also used for BBC broadcasts in the past.
Leandra on the Paper Artsy stand using some gorgeous paints on new stamps by Kay Carley.
I met lots of other bloggers and saw some great demos but in the excitement forgot to take photos - this is near the end of the day as most folk had left!
Oh! Did I spend any money….err…a bit…Happy Stampers coming up soon so tried to pace myself!!!
Paper Artsy Lin Brown stamp set(also got some stencils and a few other bits from PA), some Woodware sentiments and Carabelle Studio stamps, some Dinky stencils and surfaces from That's Crafty(Thanks to Helen Chilton doing such a great job of demoing)
I think that's it for today, off to check out some desks now!
Thanks for looking, Chris
