WOYWW - 189

Happy WOYWW! My spindle toolbox is on my workdesk, so I took a picture of my new goodies instead. It's been over a year since I ordered from Papertrey Ink so it took me a week to figure out exactly what to get lol. Shown are the Jane Austen stamps and the Ocean Tides ink pad. I can hardly wait to get them inky, but sadly previous obligations get in the way. In addition to awesome products, my tissue paper supply is re-stocked since they wrap each stamp set in its on sheet. Christmas and birthday money well spent : D.

I haven't been crafting a lot, but I've been percolating ideas like mad. And I've been pinning for Scotland. Today I realized I have over 9500 items on Pinterest lol. So many shiny ideas, but since I'm a visual person, it's so much easier to find the inspirations I found six months ago.

This holiday season found me to be a "miniscule giver of cares", and I gave myself permission not to sweat about it much (but couldn't quite muster the permission to make non-gift crafts I was hankering to do). I'm backish : D.

If you are wondering what's all this WOYWW, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander. Better yet, join in the fun and show us your work space.

edited to add: My "good" glasses have come home from their hiding place in a bag of needlepoint at my sister's house (where they've been vacationing since July). A big thank you to those who are responsible for their return!!!!! (And it's done much to restore my mojo.) : D.

Love PTI stuff, but here in England, its not available. Looked at their shipping to the UK, and its $37! But a lovely lady on Splitcoast Stampers ordered a die that I had fallen in love with, and sent it to me :) They really need to get an agent over here Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #65

I absolutely love Pinterest, so I understand.

Have fun playing with your new toys.

Sorry I am 2 days late getting to your blog. I have been battling a nasty flu bug.

Interesting box of goodies there needing to be played with - funny I looked on pin interest for the first time today - I am not sharing a desk as away from home looking after my friends cattery but enjoying having a good look around everyone else's desk

Looks like a great haul - love that misty blue ink. Oh, and Pinterest? DOH! I could spend HOURS there but really should PIN more. Did you say 9k worth of pins??? Blimey. I think I;d better check out YOUR boards :D
