WOYWW 108 - Wow Wednesday Again??

Ok I spent most of the week being ill, a fast acting starting off as sneezing ninja attack sort of bug that triggered problems with asthma and possibly bronchitis. Not very creative nor fun lol. But I did manage to get a little crafting in and shock of all shocks, some clearing of deskspaces!. What can I say... I was ill lol.

The odd pink looking thing to the right is a marvelous little brad setting tool that I picked up on sale for $5.00. The airplane was a test model from my new Groovy Times cartridge. The fun foams are cut with Papertrey Ink die cuts and glued onto plastic packaging thus transforming them into stamps. Continuing in a clockwise direction are two more embellishments I made from the Botanicals Lite cartridge that I haven't decided what to do with yet, and above them was my Purse Project for the last three years finally finished!

It's all made of French knots and Cotswold knots and the perfect thing for carrying in a purse to be worked on. At the same time sort of mindless as it's just filling in the lines with colored threads, no counting required at all. But at the same time interesting and enough to focus on to book passage to my happy place if needed (and a lot less noticeable than sticking my fingers in my ears and la-la-la-ing). And I had no idea what a Cotswold knot was till I purchased this kit lol.

I am a big fan of stencils, but usually forget to use them. So I got a handy dandy notebook and started putting them in page protector sheets. I'm really addicted to page protector sheets lol. I'm not sure if I'm ready to start sewing pockets in them though, time will tell. Some of these stencils go back to the 80's btw lol.  Apparently there is no expiration date on them.

Lastly, Interweave Press has 10 free books available for download now, you have to sign up, but lots of good info there.

If you are wondering what's all this WOYWW, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander. Better yet, snap picture of your workspace and join in the fun :D.
