WOYWW #159

 Morning ladies and gents and Happy WOYWW to everyone. Thanks to everyone who commented on my desk last week, I hope I managed to return the favour to all. And a HUGE thanks to Julia for continuing to host this global weekly party snoop!!

I digress, to the batcave (uumm  - craft desk). Thought I'd go for the ariel shot this week - no climbing honest - just outstretched arms! Had the good fortune to find some trousers to fit yesterday, so bought 3 pairs (wearing one), just need to remove the other tags (saved for crafting of course!). I got a t-shirt too and the ribbons have been removed and they are also destined for the crafting box! Sewing box takes centre stage as a result.

And there - in a neat row - are my new Tim Holtz Summer inkpads. YIPPEE. I have made a butterfly ATC to try them out and the colours are quite vibrant and indeed very Summery. I am just missing the "Fall" set now - I hope they release that one again in the Autumn. If you look very carefully you'll spot my Week 3 Summer of Colour Entry, but I am saving that for next week as it uses a new altered book technique too.

Gosh looking at the photo, my desk sure looks busy or is that messy? BJ

The "Scrapbooking Your Faith" pass the book draw was won by Valerie in Texas and will be winging its way there shortly.

I don't know how you manage with such a small space! I am fortunate to have a whole room to craft in and a 6 ft table to use!

Nope, not a bit messy. Creative busyness! There are some real treasures I see! I love your ATC! It is just beautiful! I can hardly wait to see the book! I found it rather ironic that it originated from Texas! I haven't posted about my desk yet so I have no number but I will.

Helen said...

Love that ATC, my inks arrived yesterday too. Your space is small but perfectly formed, I feel! Happy WOYWW, Helen 33

Hi BJ, I just love your workspace, it looks just like mine, full to the brim with wonderful goodies, love it! Your ATC is amazing, I am so in love with these new colours (you might get the autumn ones from AFTH.co.uk, I think they still have them). Looking forward to seeing your Summer of Colour entry. Crafty hugs, Anne x #43

Glad it's not only me who is addicted to the TH seasonal inks. The summer colours are fab aren't they? Mine arrived Monday.
Pretty sure they are going to re-release them season by season so you will only have to wait a short while for the autumn ones.

Aren't those clothing tags wonderful!! lol....It's not the first time I've used some in my crafting !! Had a beautiful black lacy one that came with a jacket I bought a while ago.

Thanks for sharing,

Hi BJ Love the arial shot! I spotted my ATC gifts on your shelf! I had a good old mooch around! What is that rounded white thing on the top left of the photo? I didn't event try to hide my nosiness! I know I am among friends :-)

Hugs from Helen 107

P.S. Please pop to see Angenita (89) as she could do with a WOYWW hug today (pass it on)

Yay! Hello there BJ!

Wow, those Tim Holtz colours are gorgeous, and now I've finally seen them, I'm going to have to buy them. Bummer! LOL

I was going to ask if you'd received my ATC, but close inspection of your desk photo shows me that you have, so that's a relief! I was starting to wonder if they were arriving ok!

Hoping you have a great day,

Morti #58

Great ATC and a very cosy workspace! x Jo

Amanda said...

Hi, aren't that sure on the summer distress colours for myself, quite bright for my style, however I love your ATC so I might be changing my mind. It's never too late to start colouring in!!
Thanks for visiting mine Amanda J @76 x

Helen said...

Those distress inks look gorgeous. I love the way you refer to your craft desk as the bat cave, what a lot of stuff. Looks great.

Laura said...

Hi, BJ, thanks so much for your sweet comments over at my blog. I loooooove your ATC with the new distress inks! There are always so many things on my crafty wishlist that I've never picked up any of the seasonal sets (yet!) I like that bright green and bright pink, especially.

Amy E said...

Looks like lots of fun going on in your crafty space!!! I LOVE your ATC!!! I wasn't planning on getting the Summer set of inks, but now after seeing your ATC, I'm second guessing myself!!

I was going to say it looked rather messy, but you are so right. It is BUSY. Either way, it looks like a great place to play, especially since you have the new inks. Love the new inks on the ATC. Yes, I need those inks myself. I'm pleased to have 3 new pairs of trousers too. I'm with you, I found one that fit and bought it in all the colors available. I hate clothes shopping. :-P

sandee said...

Ya'll are making me into a TH junkie....yes, I ordered the summer colors too...lol...I am putting my foot down though over drooling over the man...well in public anyway! lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Laura said...

Angenita said...

Thank you for your kind words.
Great desk, so much to see.
If you are just as happy as I am when I find fitting pants, you had quite a party. :)
