WOYWW #142

Once again it is time to visit Julia at  http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ to view all the work desks from around the globe. This week my desk is covered in stamps and paper!
I am in a bit of a creative mood so I am planning to work on  some cards this week.
 I have picked out some stamps...
The golf stamp will be for retirement cards. The word phrase reads "Let the relaxation begin! Happy Retirement".
The bird stamp was picked up at the scrapbook store garage sale and I have never coloured it before...looks like it will be a bit of fun! I am very much a Copics beginner, so I hope it turns out.
The birds nest  stamp will be used in a scraplift of a card idea off Pinterest and the rest of them, I am not sure about.
Jo of   http://mycraftingcorner-jo.blogspot.com/   has been encouraging me to join in some challenges. Hopefully my finished cards will fit some of the criteria!

I have also included a the spoils of a little shopping trip. Mostly because I have not put them away as of yet! Our scrapbook store often prints a 30% off coupon that is good to be used off your entire purchase, plus one item at 40 or sometimes even 50% off.  Such great deals, but now I must rein myself in as I have officially spent my scrappy budget this month! I have been wanting those little letter alphas for quite some time.  Can't wait to use them.

Finally, here is a shot of the left side of my main counter. My Son-in-law installed the L shaped counter tops and built some oak brackets to help hold it up. It is further supported by my husbands childhood dresser and night table. He was so happy when I managed to work those into the room.   They had been stored in our garage for years.  The two bottom drawers of the dresser holds all my finished cards, stores of blank envelopes,  and cards I have been given by others that I have saved for a template.  The top drawer holds my cutters and cutting systems. The night table holds tons of memorabilia.
Hope you had a good week! Off to check out all the other desks...

Your workspace looks very organised. That stamp on the left hand side is one of my favourites! Happy WOYWW!

Those stamps definitely look like fun! Don't forget to show us what you do with them. I've not used Copics and probably won't. they are quite pricey here.

The counter with the dresser and end table underneath looks great.

Happy WOYWW

Love your workspace and how great to be able to use your DH's childhood furniture, no wonder he was pleased.
Don't worry about the Copics, they are easy to use and I'm sure your results will be fab. I love that stamp to the left. have seen it used so many times and I can't find it for sale now - must be discontinued. Don't you hate it when they do that.

Jackie said...

I love the look of that golf stamp, I haven't seen that one before.

Sam said...

Some lovely stamps there and your desk looks sooo inviting.
Prague was fantastic if a little cold!
I am desperately trying to catch up with last week so I am not posting this week. I also have two projects on the go which are not for public viewing - yet!

Morti said...

Fab desk this week - that patchwork style stamp on the left is gorgeous - who is the manuafacturer?

Thanks for stopping by my blog, but I feel perhaps I need to let you know that I made that card for my GODdaughter, not my GRANDdaughter....ROFLMAO.... At not quite 40, I know I could easily be a Gran but Lil Miss B is only 11, bless her, and not quite up to the task as yet! You did make me chuckle though.

Karen said...

Loving your craft space! Those stamps and new stash look good, it look as though you will have lots of fun putting them into use :)

Have a great WOYWW and a fab week, Luv Karen xx

Neet said...

What a lovely workspace you have and how nice to incorporate your husband's drawers - they look lovely and sturdy.
Over on JFF we are coming to the end of a month of Masculine cards so the golf clubs would fit in nicely. Please consider joining as Zoe is closing the blog after this week and masculine was my choice. Here is the link http://jffchallenge.blogspot.com/

Thanks for commenting on my blog and look out for news of a new challenge blog I and some friends are going to start.

Hugs, Neet xx

Brenda B said...

Gotta love those craft store deals, there are times when I have to restrain myself! Just because they give me a coupon doesn't mean I have to go and use it lol! Love that you incorporated your husbands old furniture into your room too. And I love challenges as they really make you think about what you're doing or get you to try a new technique.

Hugs
Brenda

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Great workspace! How nice that you have a crafty hubby how can install and brace the counter tops (and share his dressers). I do love your bins of goodies on your desk. You got some fun new toys to play with. I like how you lined up some stamps to use to keep the projects you have in mind focused.

Twiglet said...

A cosy little craft space - thanks for the snoop.

Shoshi said...

Lovely collection of stamps and papers. I simply love your work space - that gorgeous corner counter!! It all looks very organised.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, and I'm so glad you like my butterfly project. I gave it to my sister today and she simply loved it - I'm really pleased! She appreciated the work that went into it, and the detail of the box etc. Now I'm getting to grips with Sheba (my cutting machine) I can't wait to do more!!

Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #19

Yay for new stash! Your space is wonderful and I need (yes NEED) to know where to find the square jars. I can't tell you how awesome those are to me! If the little ones are the right size I'd use them for buttons on my wall unit. Pleeease tell me...

What a great space you have to work and I'm so envious of you having a scrapbook store, let alone the amazing discounts! Thanks for stopping by.

Oh what a nice workspace! Isn't it wonderful to have handy men about! My husband built all my cabinets and the bases for my work surface, but I suppose that will all be revealed in another post!

You look as though you are set for a busy crafting session with all those stamps at the ready.
What a lovely room you have and all so organised.

Your new furniture set-up looks great -- and it is so gratifying to use things you own in a new way. I have a new hanging shelf that my husband made in shop class for his mother; now it's hanging in my space and holding stamps and spray mists!
