WOYWW - the wanderer returns!

I don't get to show my desk as often as I used to at Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday, hosted by lovely Julia at the Stamping Ground blog, although I do confess to popping in to view some desks occasionally! 
I have no intention of going out in this cold weather, so here I am...my first full day in for a week!!! 
I will start by showing you my desk and my intentions for today!
The journal page is a bit wild but I have a plan!! The main thing on my desk is the distress ink colours printed out ready to stick onto my ink pads - I have been meaning to do this for ages, so this afternoon my card table will come out and I will have a film on while I do them! I may even choose a film that hubby will like!!!

Last week we had a short stay at our caravan and a trip up to Keswick where we popped into the pencil museum..I did have a bit of a spend...on essentials, you know....
...well, not entirely essentials but I did want some more Inktense pencils and when I saw the drawing pencils on offer I decided to add the book, I really would like to make 'Amazing Drawings'!!!

The next day I called into Rowan Tree Crafts in Carnforth, there was a new delivery of AALL and Create stamps and stencils, including the  Tracy Evans sets I wanted(although I have since seen another that I 'need'!)and another by Bipasha BK. I added couple of stencils too! 

Keeping this brief, I still remember Julia's wishes!!

I'll be around later!

Thanks for looking, Chrisx

Hi Chris. Good to see you here today. Love the pencil museum - in fact... love Keswick full stop! Great buys - enjoy and have fun creating your new masterpieces.
Take care. God bless.

Nice finds Chris! I wish we had some craft stores left around here (other than the big box stores) as I could really use a nice crafty shop. The box stores have good things but not always all the new things I see online. :) And a pencil museum-now that is quite a visit. And your desk looks like mine- but as long as we can be creative, it's ok as it is! Hope you enjoyed your day at home and it isn't too cold. Hugs-Erika

Hiya Chris!! Lovely to see you on the desks today - I've been staying inside too and catching up on the blogs and doing a bit of crochet too. Love those pencils, it would have been rude not to buy anything from the museum shop!! Did you know there's a Crop in Sept up in Llandudno again? Check out the page on JUlia's blog.
Hugs LLJ 14 xxxx

Good to see you Chris, and no need to confess to popping in, it’s our pleasure! You are a busy bee, crikey. Love the haul of stamps and stencils, if you can’t be inspired by a new batch like that I’ll eat my hat! Love the colours on the journal page, just my thing.
