WOYWW - Beads Ahoy :D

My desk is covered with beads. I've lost my mind and entered a "anything creative and beady" swap and it's all hush hush only I'm still in the experimental stages. My lovely oldest younger sister (I'm the oldest of four) sent me the Artiste Cricut Cartridge and lots of co-ordinating stamps. I've already put it to good use but had to send them off before I could take pictures.

I've been puttering through paperwork deciding which to keep and which will be turned into cat litter. I found a "recipe" for turning shredded newspaper (I'm guessing old paper work will do as well) into cat litter on Pinterest that's on my list of things to try this week. Oh and I'm now addicted to Korean Dramas only since I speak no Korean at all I can't even doodle while I'm watching.

So if you are wondering what's all this WOYWW, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander. Better yet, take a picture of your workspace and share :D.

Delicious looking beads. The cat litter idea is one worth persuing.
Have a lovely day.

Nice busy desk there - made me smile about the korean dramas as I am addicted to Dutch/Swedish ones and am in the same boat as I have to sit and read the subtitles! enjoy the bead swap. Thanks for sharing - Sunshine Girl No. 68

I just bought the artiste cartridge and love all the things it can do! I didn't realize it came with all the stamps and chipboard cut outs so I was so surprized! Love all the beads but have trouble holding them due to my arthritis so don't do much bead work anymore. Have a great week. Vickie #73

Perhaps next week you could tell us how to make the cat litter as my daughter has three cats!!!

I LOVE your stamps to match a cricut cartridge....how great is that to someone who loves stamping and her cricut machine!!! Can you tell us more next week about these please!!!

What a lovely sister! I haven't seen this before - We have a Cricut weekend coming up so I wonder if Mel the demonstrator will tell us all about them! Love the Mother of Pearl discs on your desk. Have a fun week and Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 102

Well that is a first time I have heard of paper being used for cat litter. Makes perfect sense and only a crafter would have lots of paper and inspiration to give it a go.

Hmm, shredded paper as cat litter. I just wonder how easy it would be to clean up. Good Luck with that. Your new stamps look fun! What a nice sister!! Brigita #122
