WOYWW #209

So, here I am, bright & early. Only bright because I'm still awake from Tuesday, lol. First week of night shift, and I'm loving it. Seems a bit weird, going to work one day & coming home the next, and going to bed & getting up the same day, but thats fine, I can do weird. Without any difficulty. Possibly to degree level, :). This weeks post-crop desk stalk starts here, at The Stamping Ground, with our fab Hostess, Julia.
 So, my desk then:
Unpacking what I came home from the Crop with- a lovely stamp put on the swap table by Mary Ann, a fab image of a Boot House- think  'There was an old woman who lived in a Shoe', which Debs gave me, I think she said it was a digi- stamp, but I may be wrong. I often am. A selection of die-cuts- a couple of Memory Box ones, a bagful of Jigsaw die cuts, which was another of Debs dies- never seen this before, it was a Provocraft one. Some Tim die cuts- windows/arches, with the leftovers as a stencil. A few embossed sheets using  ' Bird Call'  embossing folder. Raffle tickets- yes we ALL took them home for later use, rofl. Crafters ( Hoarders) to the core!
 I posted the link for the DIY Silicone mould making recipe in the previous post, for anyone who wanted to have a go. I might just possibly go and have a try at making up a small batch to see how it works. Have a great Wednesday.

Great pics, Shaz! I love seeing other people's pictures, it's like the bits I missed during the day...a bit like wedding pics! Lol. You got the buttons in the raffle, yay, that was my favourite prize!!
Take care both, and see you very soon!
Hugs, LLJ 36 xxxx

I have seen a few pics of the crop, looked like a lot of fun. Love what you brought back from the crop too and you are so right about us all being hoarders..... Happy WOYWW, Anne x #51

Sandy said...

My ATC's are all still wizzing around in the postal service as I am in Australia but what excitement there is still to come my way.. Of course you kept the tickets they are so great to add here and there.
You will have to see what passed behind me at a scrapbooking crop I went to last Friday its on my post sneak a peek..

Hi there,
Just popping in briefly, I'm supposed to be mowing the lawn!
Still, this is a better way to spend the morning in my opinion.
Looks like a nice haul of goodies from the crop.
Hope you have a great week.

Hi Shaz, loving those flowers on your desk today - very pretty. We're both on the same song sheet re the watering down paints - my plan exactly! (except for the Salty Ocean DP I bought in class 'cos I know I haven't got that shade of blue)This is NOT the start of a fall down a slippery slope! Thanks for your visit - hope to get your ATC to you this weekend. MMx

sandee said...

My friends are all use to handing me their ticket stubs, coasters, ect, I have them well trained! lol I use to work night shift, up till 2 years ago, and I still find it hard to go to sleep during "normal" hours! But night shift was always more fun! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥ #12

pearshapedcrafting said...

Wow! Such lovely things! I would have so loved to come, in fact hubby said we could, then we were asked to look after our grandchildren so it was no contest really! It looks although everyone had a great time from what I've seen! Chris 127

Hettie said...

Note to self: Take some cardstock to cut dies from next time!
You got some great cuts, though I managed to barter for Debs' flower die and had tried it soon after my coffee at home!!
Great day and lovely to meet you and Doug.
