WOYWW #488

These Wednesdays seem to get here faster every week! Back to leaving our link at Julias place, The Stamping Ground, for this weeks Desk Fest.
 Had a great time at Happy Stampers, as always so much to buy, lol.
This was my desk on Sunday, ready to start the mammoth task of cataloguing in One Note, then putting it all away. Love One Note, as I have it on my PC and on my phone, so can check whether I have something before I end up buying it again. Yeah, that's a thing.
 Favourite purchases of the day?
Has to be these three stamps from Crafty Individuals.
 Love that fluffy, scruffy Raven on the end.

A few more Lavinia stamps.

And some fab ones from Hobby Art. Love the Round Penguins, far left, and the super cute Polar Bears.

There's a great Indigo Blu stamp called Batty, and a cool Fairy Castle, a steampunk Dragonfly and a couple of Halloween stamps.

 A great Halloween die cut, and a small Poinsettia die too, something I've been on the look out for.  Another Fairy House stamp, and some snowflake dies, reduced. You can never have too many snowflakes!

Good job, as I found a set at The Works this morning, too.

Along with some small wood shapes, angels & Trees, great bargain at 32 for a Quid.

These were on my desk on Tuesday morning, fussy cutting some stamped flowers from Honey Doo to go on the stamped bases. Had to shift them for now, as I needed to make an Anniversary card for Hubby. Married 9 years today, but I can't share it yet as he's on earlies this week, so he won't have it till this afternoon.

I'll blog it later in the week.

Along with the flower cards when I get back to them.

And I'm all done, apart from.........
  .......................... and Finally

 yeah, that's a thing too!

Happy Anniversary!
that fluffy raven must have been popular, I saw that Pearshaped Chris bought him too!! Looks like you managed to snag some great goodies; and bargains later too at the Works. Not checked out their Christmas line yet this year. Helen #??

Sarah Brennan said...

I must start making a list of stamps. I haven't bought many twice, but I did buy one three times once lol. Luckily I managed to sell them on so wasn't out any money. Glad you had fun at Port Sunny. Happy anniversary to you and Doug. Sarah #3

Claire said...

Morning Shaz. Just LOVE your "and finally" - most days look like that here, if I'm honest!!Happy Anniversary. Trust you are doing something great when the man gets home from work!! Nine years already? I'm sure I remember reading about your wedding when I first discovered WOYWW - before I started posting and commenting!
Those penguins and polar bears are really cuddly!
Take care. God bless.

Happy Anniversary! I was at Port Sunlight too - sorry I missed seeing you :( You got a great haul (so totally different from mine), but I love seeing what crafty things people bought!

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh my that graph, that really is a thing! My everyday for the past few months has felt like that! You did do well at Happy Stampers, and there was I worried that you weren’t there for long...you’d be ace at supermarket sweep!! I like the small Poinsettia die too, makes a lot of sense to have a smaller version. Congrats on your wedding anniversary, it’s the greatest thing isn’t it, love.

Annie said...

A very Happy Anniversary to you both. Really hope you have a wonderful day.
Really love all the new stash and look forward to seeing what you do with it all...and I don't mean where you store it :-)

Fabulous collection of new stuff and you are so honest about your shopping, not so sure that I have been but there are a few things on my desk that I bought at Newark. Happy Anniversary too you both. Have a lovely woyww, whatever you choose to do. Angela x13x

ShazInOzCardsCalligraphy said...

Hahaha.. Shaz that graph looked just like me day... totally all over the shop!! 😁
I think we need to vote you as the Best Enabler on WOYWW!!
But then if you look at my blog post you're the most generous!!!
Totally in love with my stash as rediscover things.. yummo. You'll see my stash mushroomed quite a bit as I travelled. Good I posted half home from UK. All by sea mail taking 10 to 14 days. It beat me home! Crazy but good.

Have a WONDERFULLY HAPPY 9th anniversary Shaz to you and Doug ...
.... I think you are one truly special couple and I love you to bits!! My face always smiles when I think of that crop we all had together. What a day we had!!!
Prayer hugs Shaz in Oz. X #7

Shoshi said...

Congratulations to you both and a very happy anniversary, Shaz! When you've been through as much as we both have, it makes you appreciate these milestones even more, doesn't it. Hope you are having a lovely day. Lots of lovely fun new stash to play with - you certainly are a gal for a bargain and manage to find so many fabulous ones! I love your funny this week - the story of my life... only my results aren't usually quite so artistic and pretty as the "what happened" picture lol! Thank you for your visit and your lovely comment. Glad you like the boxes. CT scan next week. The only thing I worry about with cataracts is that they can affect your colour vision and this is very important to me...

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #15 xx

Shoshi said...

Me again, meant to say (to coin a phrase lol!) - thank you for the tip re Glossy Accents for sticking down metal embellishments. I've got some somewhere although it's probably dried up by now!

Stacy Sheldon said...

Hi Shaz, Happy Anniversary to you both :) I seen a couple of things in your happy piles that are things I own so, I smiled seeing that. Love that you have a tiny divided tray to organize your cut piece into too, that looks handy. ~Stacy #22

StampinCarol said...

Happy Happy Happy anniversary!! Hope you have a great celebration!
You sure got a great amount of fun goodies!!! I'm not much into Halloween but the scruffy raven is pretty cool. Bet you'll come up with some great projects using all these goodies!
Thanks for popping by and have a great rest of the week!

You will have LOTS of fun using these, i can't wait to see your projects! Have a great week, Lindart #23

Twiglet said...

I remember reading about your wedding on WOYWW 9 years ago - time flies - hope you had a fab day today once the lovely man got home from work. Your stash is amazing - you will have fun with that lot - love the scruffy raven too! xx Jo

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

Happy Anniversary to you both, hope you both have a smashing evening.
What a great idea to catalogue your stamps, I really could do with doing that but i'm rubbish on my phone so probably wouldn't be able to find the list even if I had one hee hee!!
Thanks for sharing WOYWW Hugs Tracey #6
P.S I love Batty :D

Diana Taylor said...

I am loving your new stash, the dragonfly is gorgeous and I would definitely buy all three of those Crafty Individual stamps - they are fabulous.
Happy anniversary to you both, I hope you have a lovely evening celebrating.
Hugs, Diana x #16

Hi Shaz, happy anniversary to you and Doug. Hope you had a lovely day. That is a pretty nice shopping stash! I use OneNote too - wasn't too keen until I finally got it synced on phone, tablet and PC. I didn't go to Happy Stampers as we had a family birthday party, glad you had a good time there. Have a lovely week Heather x #27

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Sharon Madson said...

Yes, I have to keep track of everything in Evernote. My problem stuff comes in the door so much I can’t get it recorded fast enough! I like Crafyy, too. Lots of new stuff, you got there. Hope you get time to play with it! That is another thing , I buy it, and sometimes don’t use it for a couple of months. I am a collector! LOL. #28

Marit said...

Belated congratulations on your wedding-anniversary Shaz, hope the two of you made it a lovely day/evening! And wowzah, that's a lot of stamps to add to your collection... I do love that raven too! Thanks for your visit to my blog the other day, I'm pretty late with my round again but hey, at least I made it before Wednesday ;) so happy woyww and a hug from Holland, Marit #11

Neet said...

Sorry I am so late - had a mixed week, so thanks for commenting on my blog.
You certainly had a good spend at Port Sunny and I am drooling over your stash. What a lovely lot of stamps you bought. I have Whalley Abbey and I think I saw that fluffy raven on Angela's blog but I so want that raven on the cross. Love your flowers and your flower cards.
It's lovely sat here today seeing the sunlight dappling through the trees whilst I play catch up.
Hugs, Neet 9 xx

Joan said...

Didn't see you at Port Sunny but we do seem to have bought quite a few of the same stamps!
