WOYWW - Week 168 and Goodies

Hello Lovely Followers and Bloggers

It is that time again when we share our desks with the world at large, courtesy of the lovely Julia over at
http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk.  If you want to know more or join in then hop over there for info.

I am doing a happy dance this week, well maybe not the dance bit, but the happy bit - yes!

I got four lovely parcels in the post which you can see here:


From left to right - a set of stamps that look like real rain drops - I kid you not, they look real, purchased from a lady in Canada called Ryn Tanaka.  Above those is a card from my wonderful WOYWW blog friend Sandee in the USA.  Sandee very kindly did me some die cuts of sea horses that I liked in her album and enclosed them in this beautiful card.  Next is my brand spanking new Scotch Tape Glider which I received from another wonderful WOYWW friend Lynn, of the Doodly birds, how kind is that, I have wanted one of these for eons, well a while anyway.  

On the right is my new DVD by the uber talented Trish Latimer, yet another wonderful WOYWWer.  I was not lucky enough to win one but I bought this and it is amazing.  I have learned such a lot about painting on canvas and other lovely things.  My first effort is in the foreground and a close up is below.  I am so pleased that Trish has equipped me in a very short space of time with the tools to paint very easily onto a blank canvas. 


I have yet to decide how to finish it off.  Trish likes to use standing people but I don't have any of those yet, I might have a look at Stampotique........    Right in the middle is just me playing with my latest stamps.

All this and I had my 100th follower, mentioned in my last post, who was Jo of Jozart, another lovely WOYWWer!  Your gift is on it's way to you Jo and thanks again.

That's it from me, hope you enjoyed your visit and if you did please leave me a comment and I will always do my best to return the compliment.  Crafty hugs, Anne xx

  4. Congrats Anne on your 100 followers, I'm only up to 50 at the mo....never thought I'd even get that many!
    And like Bridget I'd like some of those raindrops stamps, how different they are.

  11. What a wonderful lot of goodies you've received - enjoy! Like the look of the raindrops stamp. I have an ATG tape gun and love it - I'm jealous of you having the pink because I've got the old yellow. Thanks for sharing your workspace. Hope you have a good week. Hazel WOYWW #8 x

  12. what an exciting desk you've got there Anne - really amazing! Love the canvas - I keep wondering about that Trish Latimer DVD but I never find time to watch them so I thought probably not at the moment! Your canvas does look inspiring though and all of those other things look very interesting too! Hugs Rachel xx

  21. Hi Anne thanks for popping by - and I thought I was lucky!! I love your canvas background. You are a quick study. Have fun - Octopode does some great images for canvas and journaling work too. I am going to treat myself to that snail. WOYWW Hugs to you from Helen 15

  22. Well done Anne on the 100 followers, that happened recently for me too. It makes you feel really part of one big happy crafty family. I love it. All with a common cause, to get inky and messy. Your canvas is awesome! really great, I wonder what you'll put in the middle, although it is gorgeous how it is. The postie must have been laden down with all those goodies. Michelle x

  23. Thanks for stopping by. I have been wondering whether to get that paint DVD or not and it sounds like I ought to, to get over my paint phobia (buy it but don't use it much!) And the scotch tape runner, I have been pondering one of those aswell.

  24. How lovely to receive all those lovely things, whether they be bought or given! I like the bright colours of your artwork very much - wonder which stamp you're going to use on top??
    Hugs, LLJ #71 xx

  25. wooooooooooooooooo!!! GREAT job with the canvas Anne...loving it even though its 'naked' !!! Forget about standing figures, if you have to think about buying some then you're clearly not as obsessed with them as me! What about flowers or butterflies as someone else has said? Dragonflies would look awesome...... xxxxxxx Trish #90

  26. Oh Anne
    Those parcels are gems!
    The card is so pretty...and I am drooling over the lovely dragonfly. I can just imagine the lovely card you will create with this.

    I have not tried canvas yet so will watch future WOYWW to see the finished project!

    You're going to have such fun and I can't wait to see what you get up to.

  50. Hi Annie!

    You know I'm late getting around to visit any WOYWW friends this week, due to having too much fun offsite! I have to say you've done a great canvas, and you are one lucky and one very-blessed-with-friends-lady! And rightly so, you deserve every bit of it!

    Hugs, Darnell

  52. Oooh, wonderful Happy Mail!! Love that raindrops stamp, it certainly does look real! And I saw the tag you made with one of the seahorses and it is fab! The ATG gun is a great gift, I use mine constantly and can't imagine not having it now! And finally, it looks as though you are putting the dvd to good use as your canvas is fabulous! I look forward to seeing how you finish it off, although I think you could just leave it as is!
    Thanks for visiting me earlier!

  53. Anne, what gorgeous goodies you've received. I'm so glad your water droplets stamp has arrived safely from Ryn. Awesome, isn't it. I can't believe how realistic the droplets are. If you put a tiny dab with a white marker on the little circle on the droplet opposite its shadow, the effect is enhanced even more!

    Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog. It's sad to see Dad looking so frail in a hospital bed, connected to a drip, but I know he's in the right place and hopefully he'll be well enough to come home soon. My hubby is visiting again this afternoon, and also popping in to check that Mum's OK at home on her own. I'm having a restful day at home, and trying to catch up with my huge backlog of gorgeous comments on my blog from everyone - I feel really lifted up by all of your love, concern and prayers!

    My downsizing is going well - I think I shall soon reduce the 2 units down to 1!! And yes, the stuff's still on the landing! We were hoping to get most of it to the fete tomorrow but if the weather carries on like this, the whole thing may be off. It's a real pain, this awful weather.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
    Shoshi #35
