WOYWW Week 163 - Lots of Goodies!

Hello Fellow WOYWWers and blog Friends,

It's that time of the week again when we show our desks to the world, courtesy of the lovely Julia over at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/ .  If you would like to share your desk then hop over and visit Julia for full instructions.

Today I have loads of goodies on my desk!  I have a birthday later this week and very kind relatives gave me money to buy crafting goodies, I have not opened my non craft pressies just yet, that would be so rude.  Here is some of my new stash and a couple of other bits:


On the left is a roundy thing to hold my blending tools (from my lovely OH), a set of Darkroom Door London stamps (from my DS), in the front is a stamp courtesy of my win over at Penny Black Challenge last week (I have already had a play).   At the back is a plastic storage tub holder complete with tubs (which I have already filled with my Ideology and other charms etc.  In the front on the pink paper is my purchase (courtesy of DD) from the Ribbon Girls (http://www.ribbongirl.co.uk/) as advised by my wonderful blog friend and amazingly talented Kath over at http://kath-allthatglitter.blogspot.co.uk/ .  Kath is the lady responsible for me starting my blog in the first place.  The Ribbon Girl's stuff is amazing and their delivery time is second to none!

Right at the front on the right is a skull and crossbones card/mini album that I am about to send to my soon to be SIL, who loves all things macabre (and this is about as macabre as I can get!).  Oh yes, you will also see a little pink drawer knob too, courtesy of an antiques emporium I visited yesterday. This will eventually go on one of my many wooden ATC blocks that I so love doing.

A huge thank you to all my latest Followers too, I really appreciate you taking the time to follow me.

Well  I think that's enough from lucky old me, hope you enjoyed the peek and I am looking forward to visiting as many of you as possible.  If you do visit I hope you will leave me a message, I love to read them and will always try my best to return the compliment.    Happy WOYWW,  Crafty hugs,  Anne x

    Thank you so much for the beautiful card and ATC you sent me! Today I featured your ATC on WOYWW and I will be featuring your beautiful card in the very near future!

  27. How funny - I have the surround for that RUB unit, minus the boxes. It was dirt cheap at Hobby Craft (under £5) and it holds 64 stamp pads :) 4 in each compartment. I think I need another one, maybe WITH boxes this time.

    Happy WOYWW

  31. Thanks for your lovely comment, Anne. I am sooo envious of you, being able to meet up with Dyan like that! She looks such fun on the video, so I bet you had a real giggle! I'm having such fun with the inks and can't wait to get all messy again soon!

  33. Happy Birthday, Anne, and may you have many happy returns too. Love all your gorgeous goodies. I did gasp a little at the sight of that skull and was quite relieved to read that it is destined for your soon-to-be SIL and was not something you had been given for your birthday :) Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #75

  38. Hello Anne.
    Fine stash for the birthday. Wish you a fine celebration. Must say I'm not too good on the macabre either. I left an on-line group after months of unrelenting blood-drenched preparation for Hallowe'en some time ago.
    The little drawers are great and I like the tree stamp too.
    Have a lovely week,

  41. Happy birthday to you, missy! Have an excellent day shopping and playing. Woot! You've hauled in some good loot already so I can't wait to see what you add to the stash. Tell me about this plastic storage tub! I see it has a lot of littler bins inside it-I have some of those behind my distress inks on my desk. But, but, I have to know, is there some bin they all fit into?! That would be fab. The tree stamp you won looks too cool to play with and look at all those bits and pieces on your desk. Yes, definitely have an excellent birthday and continue to celebrate for the rest of the week.

  44. Are you sure you're not a Princess?! Because that is a whole lot of new toys (and MORE non-crafty pressies yet to open?!) for a mere mortal person! I'm just kidding; I'm very happy for all your fantastic new things!! Happy Happy Birthday later in the week, and Happy Happy Crafting with your new toys! Darnell #142
