Wednesday!! WOYW!?

Morning everyone!! Another Wednesday, another WOYWW and another wander around the World to see what everyone has been doing all week. Me? Not a lot. I have managed to get all the 'gold' on all the corners of my box (the bits that will still be seen after I've covered the other bits with decorative papers) I then decided that one of my other boxes could do with the same treatment, so have painted the corners of that gold too.
I also found the magazine from last year, which I was looking for last week, with the 'Make Me' article, which gave me the idea.
The only trouble is, they used The Mariposa Collection papers, which have a 'golden' inlay, and look beautiful, and of course, can I find them over here in the UK? No.... but I'll keep searching!! With any luck, this is what my box will look like when it's finished!
Right, I'd better stop typing this and get cracking on drawing this weeks freebie digi. Meanwhile if you feel the sudden urge to come and show us all your crafty space, hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in!! It's that simple!!! Thank you for stopping by!!

    A x

  2. always love to see your space and that little unit will be fab!
    Thanks for the peek! Sarah (at 4)

  3. Good luck with your paper search.... the box will look fab.

  4. Oh! It think that it will turn out Fab! Maybe you could dig up a gold pen or paint if you cannot find the gold inlay paper? Anyway, glad that you found the magazine, and thanks for sharing youe WOYWW! -Amanda

  5. Well done for finding the magazine - that's quite amazing! I've been searching high and low for my last P45 and as yet, no luck, oo er....
    I like your little circle of glittery goodness (in the 2nd shot) mmmm, sparkle......
    Have fun this week, hugs, LLJ xxxx

  6. I love your desk. It makes me want to come over and play! good luck with the paper hunt.

  7. Glad you've started your box! it will look great. If it's the DCWV Mariposa papers you are after if you search Mariposa in the Crafts section on ebay a few options come up... there are a few 12 x 12 pads on there for around £20 which is full price really but if that's what you really want... Also I'm sure The Range do it too if you have one near you. Good luck x

  8. Hi Lyn. Right, sit yourself down girl! Here's a link

    It's in stock and on offer for £12.

    The stack is 8" x 8" - not sure if that's big enough, I think they might do 12" x 12" papers as well.

    If it's 8" x 8" you're after I have a brand spanking new, totally unused stack here right beside me! I bought it as the papers do look stunning (the gold inlay is sumptuous!) but, a lot of the papers aren't right for cards so I've never used it. Yours for £5 plus whatever the postage would be. Drop me an email chick if you're interested, I won't be offended if you decide to buy from dies to die for.


  9. Good luck with the paper search i will look out for it too in my travels.Can't wait to see completed box.Happy woyww have creative wednesday
    hugs judex 20

  10. I knew you would find that magazine! The box looks great and I am sure yours will too.
    Happy WOYWW

  11. Good luck tracking down that paper collection. I think your box is going to look fab :o)
    Solved the problem of loading your blog by switching to google chrome.

  12. Love the box. I'm sure it will look good with whatever paper you eventually go for

  13. Love your desk hun ) Just looks so comfy and come use me.


  14. I'm sure I have seen Mariposa about good luck in your search! Happy WOYWW hugs Rebekah (95) xx

  15. It seems you always find things when your looking for something else! I think the unit will be wonderful! Thanks for the peek!

  16. The gold will be fab. I'm pretty sure the DCWV Mariposa collection was here at the time...trouble is they replace them all so fast now, huh! Doesn't matter - you'll still have a cracking set of drawers, whatever you choose to use.

  17. Hi hun
    busy desk as always, luv the project in the mag hope you find ya papers, could you paint the edges gold???? I couldnt lol but bet you could, thanks for the mooch happy WOYWW, sue,x

  18. Hello Lyn, I'm really looking forward to seeing this project when completed. Isn't it frustrating when you can't source papers that seem to be freely available in the US, especially if you've set your heart on them. Thanks for the Witchy digi - she's terrific. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #51

  19. Lyn, I'm impressed you found your magazine. That in itself is a feat. Let's hope finding the gold inlay paper will go as well. Happy WOYWW.

  20. That box looks great, Im sure you will find something similar to use and it will be just as splendid.
    This is my first visit to your super blog, I found you via WOYWW, I will be back next week to see what else you have been upto!
    Helen x

  21. I like your set-up. Very organised chaos, lol!

  22. Well, I think you have done well doing the gold and finding the mag article... I can never find the article when I want it!! Hope you are sorted with the papers now... will have to look in Micheals to see them in the flesh now!!

  23. Hi there Lyn, thanks for popping over - would look for something to substitute if I were you we cant get heaps here and have to do it all the time, Shaz in Oz.x
