WOYWW 70

WoW! 70 and still going strong, that's gotta feel great! Thank you Julia for this wonderful cure to the mid-week slump! In case you don't know, WOYWW is the day when we crafters get to take a snoop at each other's desks and get some tips, ideas from each other. If you want to see some more desks go over to Julia's blog.

Ok, so I did a lot of complaining last week about not having time to craft. I found out that it's true, but it's not so bad. I still get a little in here and there! I did manage to do a layout last week. Look for it in my previous post if you're interested.

So here's what my desk looks like today. I'm showing off some stash I got at Michael's and Marshall's.
I also started working on a layout with some of the new paper, so you can see what I'm thinking about doing here. If you want to put it your 5cents that's great :)


Ok, so what do we have going on here? There's some of the pictures for the LO I'm planning to make. I might use it for a challenge...There's lovely papers and cardstock that were on sale at Michaels, my new craft mat I got there as well. The cute small papers are printed acetate sheets I got at Marshalls. On the top shelf on the right, there are 2 containers of paper 'ribbon' from marshalls as well. So many good deals that I couldn't pass up this week.

On this side of the desk, you see more of the cardstock and the other page for the layout. Not quite sure what I'm going to do with it yet. I do love that 'love bird' print, so cute!
Ok so that's what's going on with my desk this week. It's substantially better than last week! That reminds me, thank you all for your sweet comments! It was great to read your encouraging words!
Ok, let's see what you have going on this wednesday....

  22. oh yes!! Michaels, and the other one, what was it called...Ben......Franklin, we have nothing like those shops here...might do in the cities but not here, I brought back more stuff than I took! love all your papers and am still waiting for an order I placed last Christmas from my local shop, for some papers I saw while over there. What I liked too, they had hundreds of dies that you could use in the shop! Great idea. hoping daughter will bring crafty stuff when she come over, have a great woyww
