WOYWW # 202 - A little tableau....

It's Wednesday again (some would say, already) and time to go on our travels though the crafty desks of blogland. If you really don't know what's going on then can I urge you to visit Julia at Stamping Ground where you can click for all the info.

My desk is uncharacteristically tidy this Wednesday as I have just finished one DT project and have nearly done another 3d project - that shoe you can see was the prototype - which I will probably finish at some stage .  I now have to make a big leaving card for someone at work, I really can't put it off any longer, ideally I need to have it finished by Friday but have no inspiration at the moment. Oh the horror of the blank white page. This is the oh so helpful brief - music, cats (gizmo and sticky), chocolate and Glee  -  I'm hoping someone has found me a photo to work in to it but I haven't seen it yet. If not, butterflies and flowers it is then.

But over here, (this is the little tableau!!) all ready to play, are a few of the bestest things I got at Ally Pally on Sunday.

Stamps from Jofy, Sam Poole, and Clarity. A 'cog' die from Robert Addams (what a nice man!!). Frantage. Far too much UTEE. Masks. A few interesting things to alter. And, so excited about this, a Gelli plate!! Boy, am I gonna be busy.

I'd love it if you said hi, in which case I will return the favour. I will attempt to visit all those with the same nos as me, whatever they might be, but can't guarantee anything after close of play Thursday, this has to stop somewhere. I may be an evening visitor because today is a work day and can't always get online at lunch time. And also hubby is home from Ghana today after 4 1/2 weeks volunteering and will probably have lots to talk about.
(I might of course need an excuse to get away.........)

Happy WOYWW!!

Hi Cindy - how lovely to have your man home, you need to spend some quality time with him and to heck with blog visiting.
Lovely stash from Ally Pally - one day i will get there again.
The shoe is gorgeous, I remember having something similar from someone but guess it has gone now. Sorry I am no help with the card, hope you get it sorted before Friday for more reasons than one.
Thanks for your earlier visit - Hugs, Neet xx

Hello Cindy

I've been away for so long again and trying to pick up on my old blogging buddies.

I hate it when you have lots of stuff to play with and no inspiration, I do a fair bit of sewing too these days and I have exactly the same problem. Good luck with the leaving card and I look forward to seeing the finished product.

Man I need to go to Ally Pally, but to travel around the world, just for that? I don't know, maybe when I win the lottery LOL
Happy very belated WOYWW and I hope the card got done.
