What's on you Workdesk today and why I am I asking? Today is the day you can boldly go into other deskers crafty spaces and snoop! Yes you can, because Julia at the Stamping Ground has made it possible! 

My desk doesn't have a great deal to show 
A mucky mat, (curling at the edges), some new dies and stamps that hubby MADE me buy when we had a (first time) trip to Bury Market. Bury Market is HUGE if you've never been, with a craft stall in the middle!
The tags have been turned over but coming to a blog near you soon! To the left, a pile of stuff to sort through and probably bin! Centre you can see what happened to my page from last week - a bigger pic here!

So that's it! Oh! apart from telling you that I will be posting pics of our Castle visit directly after this one if you would like to have look!

Have a fun WOYWW, Thanks for looking, Chris

Hi I'm back and am really enjoying the adventure of setting up my new creative space in our new home. I've really missed catching up with all my blogging friends but hopefully over the next day or so I will pay you all a visit.
Thank you for visiting earlier and for your lovely comments. We are really enjoying the challenges ahead of us and it will take time to get there but trust me when I say we are going nowhere!! :-)
Really love your amazing photos in your next post...thank you for sharing them.

Hi Chris. Great hubby you have there - MAKING you buy things - mine is just the same at Abakhan. His principle of "It won't be there next time, and it won't go off" is exploited to the full!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Those dies are great - that flower one is gorgeous.
Take care. God bless.

Christine said...

Beautiful journal cover, Chris, and glad you had a nice time at Bury Market. Good on your hubby!! Had a look at the gorgeous photos on your next post - just stunning. What a fabulous place.

Thanks for your visit and your nice comment - glad you like the new rug in my office! The OT told Mum to take it up after her TIA as it was a trip hazard and it found its way into the loft. It looks a lot better in my office lol! My next project will actually be a continuation of an existing one which keeps having to be put on the back burner when other things have to be done first.

Happy WOYWW,

That looks like a very happy desk. I zoomed in and nosed around. I spy lots of fun stuff and am very interested in the Memory Box die. Hmm...I will need to find that one!
Have a good week! Hugs, Kathy Jo

Hi Chris, so good to see your desk with the journal on it, I have some flowers left over from another job still sitting on my desk and I was going to use them in a journal page too. I love your page so blooming beautiful well that was going to be my words on my page LOL Love the colours you have used in the background. I hope you have a wonderful crafting week.

I've been to Bury market! It was years ago, mind and the only thing I bought was black pudding! I bet there's some awesome fabric stalls there too - I must go back some day!
Love your mucky mat btw!!

DH lived near Bury as a teen and loved it - MIL was always mentioning what a great market town it was. Looking forward to seeing those tags...hope you'll like here too so I don't miss them revealed :)

Lovely bright art journal page! How nice of your husband to insist upon you bringing home some new goodies -- mine recently did the same thing. hahahahahahaha Happy WOYWW! ~ Laura #53

Sounds a great place to visit - my friend Jean used to live in Bury - she used to go down to the market for dress fabric so that she could make a new frock to go out dancing in on a Saturday night!

Must pop back later for the Castle piccies.
Bury Market is close to me (4 miles at the most) but I never knew there was a stall with craft things on. See what I have learned. Is it indoors or out?
Thanks for enabling.
Hugs, Neet 16 (I am like the White Rabbit in Alice - always late - thanks for your earlier visit).

I like your floral page! Gorgeous colours! And I had a look at your balloon tag (above) which I like very much! I will also have a look at the castle pics later :)
Thanks for visiting earlier.
