WOYWW 50


Hello, You wouldn't believe this but last night I posted my special WOYWW anniversary project! so I am two weeks ahead! so if you was quick this morning you saw it! but I have filed it away now for another two weeks, Who knows with two weeks left O may make something else as well. Now WOYWW is the fantastic invention of Julies we all have a good nosy on other peoples work desks and get some inspiration. I don't get much in the way of anything done on a Wednesday now as well over 100 people are playing each week and it can take up your day ;0) I get as round as many as I can, I think the days of seeing every single one are beyond me now this is how popular and addictive this is. Seriously though if you have a wee bit of time this is a great way to pick up things and satisfy that general nosiness we all have lol (or is that just me?).


As a little bonus I thought I would start showing a little extra each week (of all my stash) this should keep us going a while ;0) I won't go through every thing just click the photo to make it larger and have a good look.

I will explain a little of what is on my desk though can you see my new storage addition (oh it is so lovely) I though I would put all adhesives in the top. and in the middle stamps that are new or I haven't used in a while and this would encourage me to have a go with them as they are in easy reach! As always I have been to some charity shops, new ones this week I have had some fantastic finds. earlier this week I posted some wonderful finds so you will have to go back a post or too to see but yesterday I went to Altrincham (I think that's how it's spelt?) any way so many charity shops I have to go back! but can you see the magazines to the left of the picky? they were not cheap (£2.99) as my usual buys are but I have to have a couple. there was a huge stack of them, if only they were £1 each I could have had 6 lol I will show these in more detail to morrow along with some other bit's and bobs, so pop back tomorrow if you can. oh a little tip can you see the blue and yellow box? this is a cooking sheet to cook pastry on or to cut up to put in the frying pan you can see the dirty old one on my desk too so I thought I would get a new one from the £1 shop yes ONE POUND is what my craft sheet cost and I got the first one that you see in Dec. so I think maybe not as good as the proper craft mats but they take heat and I mix alcohol on them and inks so this is my tip get to poundland and buy one I think I will pop off to Altricham again for some more of those mags have a great day I will get round to you all soon. Love Dawn xx

I swear you have more stuff in your drawers than the local craft store! Just kidding. I never would believe you could buy one of the those craft mats for so cheap. Not sure they're a bargain, though, if they don't last too long.

Like you, I may not make it around to everyone, but there's no way I would miss your mess (OOOPS), I mean desk! Happy WOYWW.

OOOhhh! Is that David McCallum on that magazine?? Used to love him in "Man from U.N.C.L.E." Now he's on NCIS. Anyway, love that lace and pink Dresden (?) Wish I had caught the post of your WOYWW sneak preview. I am having trouble coming up with an idea. Need some inspiration!
Have a lovely day!

Hi Dawn,

Paula Gale said...

Oh I say Dawn - those mags are crying out to be cut up aren't they - is that what you have them for..?

I have exactly the same cupcake stand as you have - and have rearranged what i store in it twice already!!!

craft mats - i heard that you can use those oven / toaster ones - i paid £8.99 for my craft heat mat but got one of those anti-static bags for when you are embossing with it too so thought that was a reasonable buy - plus it'll last forever ...

I bought a couple of things from a charity shop before i went back into hospital - they are currently hideous wooden oval wall plaques which i have bought to alter... so I think i need to follow your lead and visit a few more.

I like your kitty mug with your pens in it! Good for you for getting great deals at Poundland! I think I'll have to take that advice and see if our dollar tree over here has anything I can use!Thanks for sharing!
