WOYWW 172

Goodly morning all and welcome to Diane, my latest follower. I'm so glad you've chosen to come along for the ride. Bit of a milestone today - post 100!! Who knew those few short months ago when Hels Sheridan nagged encouraged me to create a blog that I would post so much!? And today sees another milestone as Son 2 reaches the age of 15 so we've already had the grand card/pressie opening session before the sun came up:) Now there's a quick window of opportunity to join in with the fun that is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - please take a trip to Julia's HERE to find out what I am banging on about here as she is SO much better at explaining this phenomenon. And what is on my workdesk?


This was the scene in the dark at 5.30am today - oh yes, at least three projects mentally on the go (is it any wonder they take so long to materialise when they are all fighting for space/time?!) There's a failed blended stains tag that went WAY too dark and needs doing over. Aarrrrgh! My new TH stamps, courteousy of my August Tag win (yummy:)) need to be put through their paces, as does a dance set which I won from a recent Artistic Stamper Creative Team 2nd anniversary blog giveaway (yippee!!) Sioux Jenneys wants to see what I can do with them so my mind is currently in overdrive on that one. What else? Hmmm, could those be the new TH Sizzix diffusers? Oh yep! Another win over at Frilly & Funkie's Sunday Share meant I HAD to have a bit of a spree which included these, some yummy lace, embossing folders and archival ink. Finally, lurking in the shadows in the top left corner is my September TH Tag, waiting for its typewriter, but that's a whole other story and Julia likes us to keep it short and sweet. So I'll disappear at this point and add my name to the ever expanding list (are people linking a week in advance now, or do you all sit up 'til the wee hours of the morning to beat the rush?!:D I'll be seeing you at your places v. soon.
Hugs, Buttons x

  2. Congrats on all your wins, and a very happy birthday to Son 2. I have to confess, I've been one of those that's stayed up till the wee hours in the past, but I'm over that now...LOL.... it's mostly either the Americans, Australians or Insomniacs that get in first these days!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving your kind comments - reading between the lines, do I surmise that you will be joining us at the big Crop next month????

  3. Loud cheering to be heard NOW-- from Australia for your 100th post. It is kind of addictive isn't it? I though I was the only one who tiptoes around my studio at 5:30 am. What goodies and what great plans await you on your desk Buttons.
    By the way did the treasures I sent to you a while ago arrive?

  8. Hi there. Lovely to see a neat desk with all those lovely goodies to play with; thanks for popping by my blog earlier. I hope you enjoyed your visit and rummage through my place and hope to see you there again. Have a good week. I'll be interested to hear what your thoughts are on the diffusers; I've not had much luck with them but perhaps because I was expecting too much.....or doing it wrong (wouldn't be the first time.

  18. Looks like you have a very busy desk there. I struggle doing one project at a time so I don’t know how you manage three, Lol!
    Still, at least you have some lovely new stamps to play with so I’m sure you’ll be able to create a masterpiece.

    Happy Crafting!

  27. Cor Blimey! What a lot of wins. Can you rub some of your luck off on me please.
    That tag is salvageable and I do like that cloth at the top right with all the colours on, bet with an iron it swill be fabulous to use in some of your artwork.
    Congrats on your 100th blog post, happy birthday (Belated) to your son and thanks for sharing to you.
