WOYWW 190 - Images aplenty


Quick post before DH and I set off to walk the grandkids to school.  Spent last night crafting at my next door neighbours. Her husband is on a business trip for 10 days so I have gone to hers for the past 2 weeks.
Brought some colouring as it is so easy to pack up a few copics and some sheets of images. Here is a peek at what I unpacked when I got home.  


The beautiful bird stamp at the bottom left was a RAK from Samantha Healey of Lady Bug Crafts
http://samanthahealey.blogspot.ca/
She had a giveaway on her blog and I was the lucky winner.  It is a La Blanche stamp and is a very easy stamp to use...it stamps so beautifully and evenly! I tried one image in in Memento Black and another in Memento brown.  Little Miss C is dying to try this bird so one image will go over to her house...perhaps we will even colour them together...

Whoops, I see there are a couple of images in there that I coloured at the scrapbook store crop last weekend...guess I hadn't unpacked them yet!!!

 I have been a bit remiss in blogging in 2013...hope this post and these images get me back into a better routine. If you are wondering why I am showing you my desk, pop over to Julia's blog 
http://stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/ and check out more desks from all over the world! But be sure to leave her some bloggy hugs.

  12. Gorgeous new stash, and what fun to spend the evening crafting with a friend.

    Many thanks for your comment - I have every intention of enjoying myself to the utmost tomorrow at the show - I get out so infrequently that it's a real treat! I've got my list ready (I know I shan't confine myself to that, lol! but have some Christmas money that's just crying out to be spent!!) I'll certainly be doing a post about the show, and am going armed with my camera and 2 newly charged batteries.

    I've finished the spoke guards and they are now installed in all their glory on my wheelchair! Have art, will travel! I'll be doing a post about them, too, once I've finished working on the video.

    Happy WOYWW,

  27. Your coloring is looking great, and I also like the wall of jars/boxes filled with what appears to be embellishments. It's like a mosaic. Blessings!

  28. Hi Maureen

    Nothing like a good colouring session to get the creative juices flowing .. .. I love taking a stack of colouring when I visit my Mum.

    We sit talking for England whilst I colour.

    Looks like you had a very productive time!

    Love Jules xx

  32. I've discovered a lady I know through blogging who was living in the UK has moved just 3 miles away from me in Michigan, we've talked on the phone and hope to get together soon to craft. I like you you think I got great bargains, wasn't that your name I saw pulled out on kath's blog for the HA stamps??! That's what I call a bargain, lol!!

  35. Hi Maureen,

    I sent you an email as I wasn't sure if I'd get to your desk.... but here I am! Very nicely done coloring. How great to have a neighbor that loves crafting!

    Oh, the home front. My realtor tells me that it's a slow time of year -- except for the two places that I was interested in. I'm still trying to sell it myself and just renewed my online ad for another month. The two places that I was interested in had been on the market since July and August! Yikes. I'm hoping it doesn't take me that long. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

    On a sad note, my good friend (who taught me to knit) passed away Wednesday. It's been tough for me.

    Hugs,
    kay
