Wow It's WOYWW time, with a Fizz and Zing!


Morning all you woywwers! It's that silly time of the week again!! Here's my desk this wicked Wednesday... not much going on, my row of scissors, which have been there since day one of WOYWW (even in the other smaller crafty room) This weeks freebie, a cold cup of tea, some scribblings, an old cartoon I found.
**I switched on my lamp with my new daylight bulb (cost an arm and a leg!) to take the picture and ...Pop! Crack fizzzzz, it went out, so that'll be going back to Hobby Craft as soon as poss! So, all pretty boring! BUT!!!! Turn to the other side of my crafty space...dah dah dah da!!!!!! Lookie see what I have!!
A few weeks ago, I had my Venice mask on my desk and ***Shoshi asked me if she could do a Zentangle of it and she did!! She sent me a copy and here it is!! Isn't it fantastic! I love it!! There's sooo much detail. Aren't I a lucky bunny! Thank you soo much Shoshi! Don't worry, it's kept out of my (usually) messy craft room until I can get a frame for it. That's what's on my desk this dreary old Wednesday. What's on yours!? Join up over on Julia's Stamping Ground!
New Followers! Hi and a ((big wave)) to Crafting Pasionz (no link, but I found you..) and Marie from The Joy of Cards with some fabulous makes! Doubt very much if you'll 'see' me next week, but you never know, I might cheat... and put my empty room on timer! Bye for now!

updates...
**New bulb is okay! It was my old lamp that was a bit dodgy! All is mended now, Sorry Hobby Craft!! Bother! Now I have no excuse to go back and do more shopping!!
*** Shoshi has kindly said anyone wishing to download her lovely mask to go HERE Please read her comment above and leave love and comments on her blog!

  6. glad you like the book, love the mask rendering, breathtaking panorama of desk that I know I could spend all day looking at - however I feel I should continue my hopping - ah but I do so want to linger here.....

    I thought I'd come home to the wrong desk at the weekend....

  7. You are so lucky, that zentangle is incredible. I love all your goodies on your desk and especially your coffee/tea mug, so cute.
    Bummer about the light bulb, that sort of thing usually happens to me.
    Have a great week.

  25. Awwww thanks Lyn - and all the other WOYWWers who have commented on here - for all the extra Wow's!! What a thrill it is to see the mask on your desk for WOYWW, Lyn, and so glad it made it safely to its destination! Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog and glad you like the knitting. By all means send anyone over to my blog - she can download the piccie from there, or look for me on Photobucket (Shoshiplatypus) and do it from there if she wants. It's free for anyone to use - my only request is that no commercial gain is made from it, and a link back to my blog and a comment is always welcome!

    Love your busy desk, with the little shelves above, and all your gorgeous pictures on the wall. It looks so bright and cheerful!

    Hugs, and happy WOYWW,
    Shoshi

  26. Your workspace is awesome I love it, I could spend hours there just looking and touching and moving things to see what else you have. Lucky you getting the mask sent to you and what an awesome mask it is too. I am sure you will treasure it always. Soshi is so tallented.

    1. After working out this new daylight bulb would last 60 years (!!!) when it popped after less than 60 seconds I was a Bit disappointed!!
      BUT!!!!
      I feel VERY guilty now, coz the daylight bulb now works!! it was my dodgy old lamp that was at fault, hubby has now fixed it! And boohoo, now I can't go back to Hobby Craft and do more crafty shopping!!
      Sorry Hobby Craft!!

  30. Love the workspace - you've got a great collection of stamps there. I also love the mask - how beautiful - and it will look stunning framed and hanging on the wall. Thanks for the peek!

  31. Glad you got your lamp sorted, Shoshi is a clever crafter! Take care, am still working my way through the list, doing so in stints and making sure I have snacks to munch! Zo xx 77

  32. Glad you got your lamp sorted! those daylight bulbs are soooooo expensive BUT once you've used one you can't manage without!! well I couldn't anyway :o) desk is looking nice and busy, super cute hedgie image! I really need to splash out on some PB hedgie stamps, my Mum LOVE's hedgies so I really should get some for her cards. Thanks for stopping by my desk x

  33. Thanks for popping by my desk - you are late this week arent you 102 thats a big number! Love that zentangle and glad you got your daylight bulb sorted - I have them now in my dining room and by the side of the settee - so much better! shame my eyes are going....

  34. I like visiting your desk and peeking at all your stamps lined up. The scissors-well, it is important to have them on hand. I have a large pair on top of my desk but the more used little ones go in the top desk drawer. I'm pretty good about putting them back but every once and awhile I open up the drawer and NO SCISSORS. Then the entire planet must stop what it is doing and help me search. :-)

  35. Wow you have a awesome work space and love the black and white mask
    Thanks for passing by have a great week x

  36. Great looking desk as usual! Love all the color and contrasts. Love that zentangle mask Shoshi made for you!!! Awesome comes to mind. Can I have the clown digi also! I didn't take pictures of the one I used for my granddaughters birthday card but hopefully my DIL or son did and I can get a copy to show you. For some reason here lately I am not as vigilant about taking photos of the cards I make. Whats up with that!!! Have a great week. Vickie @41

  39. Hi Lyn, you have a wonderful creative space and I love the way you line everything up, must make it easy to think of designs when you can see everything like that. Genius idea. Thanks for visiting me, I am finding it hard to get to everyone this week! Happy WOYWW (belated) Anne #61

    1. I thought you must be standing on a stool or are very tall or, must have very long arms!!! Good picture though!

  45. You really do have a lovely workspace, Spyder and your scissors are in the perfect place. I spend half the day shifting stuff to try and find pairs I've buried under mountains of stash.
    That mask is stunning, how talented is Shoshi. No wonder you are thrilled with it. I have a thing about Venetian masks and have several hung on the wall above where I'm typing right now. I wanted a new one last year when we were in Italy but they were so expensive my poor pennies couldn't run to it. I shall admire yours instead.
    Thanks for the visit and Happy WOYWW
