WOYWW! ~191

    Morning everyone... Happy WOYWW! I haven't gone to bed yet, so this will have to be quick! First sorry, to quite a few of you who got deleted by mistake last week, although I did manage to get some of your pictures back, but not comments, I pressed publish and they all disappeared!  
Here's my desk, above, 'Long Necked' lady pencils brought back by my 'doggy' people as a pressy, for when I dog/house sat a few weeks ago.(they visited the Long Necked ladies for real)  A Bugaboo image that smudged once coloured, (but I can't throw it away)die-cuts, box of erasers. Usual tins things filled with bits and tiny pegs and the papers I was thinking of using, but haven't yet! In the envelope are some STAMPS... you can't see them til Quirky Sunday!!
 Below is this weeks freebie before it got tidied up on the computer. My Big Shot... I use those little craft books as a layer for those thinner die-cutes as I haven't got proper one! (It die cuts and embosses in one) I painted that little drawer box in metallic green, ages ago, but not too thickly so you can still see the pictures beneath it. That's it!! Hop over to Julia's lovely Stamping Ground, and join in!! Thank you for popping by... I think it's so past my bed time, I'd better stay up!! Bye for now!


  1. OK. I obviously need to give my eyes a rest. I read your post three times before I realized you were writing about your Long Necked lady pencils. I kept seeing Long Naked lady pencils and I just could not understand WHAT you would be doing with those!!!

    Have a great week and I will have to remember to stop back for Quirky Sunday since you now have me very curious!!!


  2. That cupcake paper is cute and love your little teddy with the big candy cane.

  3. Have a good sleep, and then you can come back and finish your crafty projects! New stamps are ALWAYS fun!!!! Not that you need one, or have to have one, but you can order the multi-purpose platform online.

    Happy Crafting!

  10. Fab lot of goodies on & around your desk. Not that I'm a connoisseur, but I've never heard of Long Necked Lady Pencils before. What's so different about them? Are they Pastels, or watercolours?

      The people were away for 3 weeks (we looked after their dogs)and bought me back a little pressy of three long necked lady pencils!

    2. Haha - oops!! FAscinating reading about those ladies tho' The rings look so uncomfortable, but I guess, like everything, one gets used to them.

  29. I've enjoyed a good snoop on your desk today :-)
    I'm rather late in getting round today but have had to wait til my twinnie grandees went home first...they arrived yesterday morning and had their first sleep over without Mum and Dad last night....just magic :-)

  30. Hello Lyn, I've never heard of long-necked ladies - very intriguing. Always wanted a long swan-neck myself, but it was not to be :( Your desk suggest you are really busy and you are a bit of a tease with those stamps :) Hope you've had a happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #71

  31. Don't have much time to snoop this week, am late on and still lots to do but couldn't resist saying hello. Like the little drawers. Anne x

  32. That cupcake paper is pretty your desk looks lovely and busy. I hope you it o bed eventually

    Jacke x

  33. I would love to see what you have in all your little bitty plastic boxes. I bet it's great fun! :-) April #101

  34. Your shelves look so well organized - comparing to the chaos of mine...
    Love the colour of the little drawer, and the cup cake paper, too.
    Happy belated WOYWW!

  35. Great things to look at on your desk and love the cupcake paper too!!

  36. My post was also written before I went to bed, and I then linked while still in bed (using my lovely new Kindle Fire). How lazy is that? Your smudged image - could you spray it with hairspray or something to fix it, then cut round it and mount it on a suitable backing. I would hate to bin it too. Thank you for you visit this week and have a good week. xx Maggie #11

  37. Thank you so much for sharing the link about the Long Neck ladies. I was so confused. LOL! (it doesn't take much to confuse me! :) ) They are cute little figures!
    Your desk is looking so much neater than mine. As always, love seeing what you are working on!
    I wonder if you can cover the smudged part of your card with a title tag or something and hide it? It is very cute!

  38. Belated WOYWW greetings... my theres a lot of lovely things on you workspace and lots on the go. Love those little pegs.. thanks for sharing..Gill x (#82)

  39. What a lovely busy desk, Lyn. Love those long necked ladies! Nice paper too. Thanks for your comments - glad you like my new spoke guards and the videos I made. I'm afraid it doesn't make any noise! I suppose if I went fast enough, the beads on Judy's flowers might rattle a bit? Lol!

    Happy belated WOYWW,
    Shoshi #111
