WOYWW 140

 Hi Everyone, This week my desk is FURBALL free!!!!! she's in the land of nod beside the radiator who said cats were daft!!!!!! Well a busy desk going on this week I decided to take part in some challenges  ( love theme) so was having a sort through of some of my stamps, you know I discovered some stamps that were never used naughty crafter I am although I am sure I am not alone on that one
 Well a bunch of crafty individuals stamps as well as some others out on the desk, which I used on the wooden Heart you can see on my desk, the paper on the right is from basic grey thats for a card and my tag which is for tag tuesday, which I have put on the blog now, the wooden boxes I wish to alter so I put them in front of me  to try to get some inspiration to just get on with it!!! instead of faffing about I have a degree in faffing  you know!!!
 Look what Sunny Eastbourne woke up to on Sunday morning brrrrrrrrrrrrr chilly or what!!!
The footprints in the snow I think is from a fox, as the furrball stayed home that day & who can blame her, Hope you all have a fantastic WOYWW. If this is new to you and you are wondering why I am showing my desk to the world well, it's all down to the lovely Julia, at
 http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ pop over for a visit be warned it's addictive, Happy Wednesday Hugs May x x x x x

Hi May, another night owl - number one, congrats. Lots of crafting in evidence ... nice looking paper too. We haven't seen any snow here at all ... just frost while the rest of the country gets snowed in. My furball is snuggled up under my desk, bottom in close contact with the radiator ... they do like their comforts :)) Have a great WOYWW, Elizabeth x #2

jude said...

Well the weather man did get it right for once, which is a miracle!! it started snowing here at exactly 12pm on Saturday, just like they said, I still cant believe they got it RIGHT!!!!
Love the desk, nice and busy, and as for stamps, dont even go there, won some from Sue Wilson, erm........they're still in thier wrapper, 6 wks later oops!!

Happy WOYWW hun, have a good one, xx

Danielle said...

Oh, you can keep the snow. The cold stuff is not for me. I hope your kitty stays safe and warm inside.

Busy desk photo today - love it! dani 14

Mary Ann said...

Hello May...it's so strange that you have all that snow and here in Canada I have none...now I've probably jinxed myself...LOL Those wooden boxes look interesting:)

butlersabroad said...

Woohoo! Looks who's at number one!! I'm going to have to keep an eye on Julia I can see, now that she's being sneaky! Stamps are for collecting not using, that's me excuse anyway! Love the snow, we have none in SE Michigan, weird winter. Stay warm.

Hugs
Brenda 18

Deb said...

oh wow, just look at all that snow! it looks so pretty! you are certainly not alone, have many stamps not yet had their packets opened! One of these days....
Happy WOYWW, Debxx #22

voodoo vixen said...

Well, I have to admit it is nice to see snow in someone else's backyard instead of mine for a change... we don't have any!! Yay!! Its a bit nippy at -6 but feels like -20 because of the wind...
Congrats on being number one this week!!

sandysewin said...

Smart kitty. Sometimes I feel like curling up in a sunbeam. :-)

You can keep the snow. We've had a very mild winter here in New England and I hope it stays that way.

Your desk looks very productive this week. :-)

Happy woyww,

Sandy #23

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Congrats on being # 1 this week. Looks like you got dumped on. Julia mentioned that the whole of England was under a cover of white. Unlike the US mid-west where I live, you had a lot of snow. Love the view, though. I'm # 25 this week.

Jeremy and Samantha said...

Hi May from Ohio here and I am missing snow and a bit envious of you really and well thanks to you (and google) I now know what faffing is. Happy WOYWW!! TFS

Stephanie said...

I think the snow looks beautiful. We've had barely any this year in New England and I never thought I'd be able to say that I miss it!

Neil said...

Hi there, Can't believe it's Wednesday again already! Thanks for letting me in to peek and I hope the rest of the week is a blessed and creative one for you! Snow is all gone now here but it must have been pretty down by the sea! Lovely boxes on your desk, I love boxes!
Neil #45 (ish)

Bella said...

Clever furball indeed! Great creative space. We are having a heatwave of note, I am melting! Funny how the world is so opposite at the moment!

sandra de said...

Congrats on number 1 and your garden looks magical. I don't blame the furrball for staying indoors.

Helen said...

congrats on your no 1 spot! This change of posting time caught me out again... Love your pics - the garden looks so peaceful covered in snow - ours is all gone apart from some stubborn ice on some pavements (nice & slippy!)
Take care.

scrappymo! said...

Well, how does it feel to be #1.

Bask in the glory!

Those boxes look like fun. Hope you post the finished projects.

I have things I find still in the wrappers too. I find way to many...Just goes to show I should organize my room more often.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Wow, congrats on No 1!! It must be a bit like getting a Gold Medal, LOL! Some lovely 'heart' action going on there, pretty papers and I lurrrrve the boxes :)
Hugs, LLJ ~58 xx

Ann B said...

Lots of interesting things on your desk this week May, not least the CI stamps which I love. We didn't have as much snow as you, thank goodness, but the ground is frozen solid and yesterday we had a lovely day, crisp and sunny - the best for a walk.
Congrats on being number one this week and on staying up until after midnight - not something I can do, its bed for me at 10:00 pm as I like my sleep.

Karen said...

Morning May, your garden looks a bit like mine!! I love your creative desk this week, especially the pretty heart patterned paper.

Stay safe and warm, Luv Karen xxx

Julia Dunnit said...

You were up late May..I'd been out, otherwise it would have been a normal early post from me! I like the heart theme, and the basic grey one is really nice. Now I can see your light mire fully, it looks less like a super gadget...I thought the base was some sort of magic white box that I should need!!

Jackie said...

Hi May, sunny Yorkshire looks like that too!
Your desk is great, I shall make sure I call back to see the finished items.

Pam said...

No Snow here in Wiltshire! I spot lots of hearts on your desk, must be nearly valentines,suppose I better get some made Hugs Pam x

A lovely busy desk with romantic overtones I see- My look at all that snow-we did not get any here much to my kids dismay

Happy Wednesday

Jaki Morris said...

Love the desk, so much stuff, love the paper, so many hearts, love the snow, so unfair! We're along the coast in Worthiing and we didn't get any even though Brighton did!

Hope you keep warm today as it's bloomin freeballs!

Chrizette said...

Oh I am so jealous of your snow - we are having a heatwave here in South Africa. It is much too hot for me - I am wishing for winter. Thank you for visiting my WOYWW this week and joining my blog (I am a follower now too).

Franka Benjaminsen said...

Your desk looks very busy. Love all the CI stamps. You can do so much with them. And what a lot of snow... here we don't have half of it, but it is very cold outside. A good reason to stay inside crafting :-)
Thanks for visiting me and being a follower. Hope you enjoy. Have a happy WOYWW. Bye, Franka

Lisa said...

Great desk and i know just what you mean about finding stamps not used for a while (or ever!) lol

Morti said...

Wow, lotsa snow! We had a bit up here in Wiltshire, but not as much as you guys and it certainly didn't stick around. It always amazes me how much the south east actually gets. Been pretty cold here on Salisbury Plain though - don't envy the lads out on manoeuvres!

Well done on bagging top spot - I must have checked the blog about 5 minutes before Julia posted WOYWW up!

Thanks for stopping by...

StampDancer said...

Hi May - stopping by for WOYWW - Love your post. I have a furball to contend with too who is usally "helping" with my Projects. I had to banish him from the room to get my photo done.
Have a fabulous day!

Angie said...

Love your desk ...so much going on ...favourite is that tag that you show below.
BTW who would have thought Eastbourne would be thick in snow and up here in Fife there is not even a flake .

505whimsygirl said...

Hi May!

Your desk looks nice and cozy! You are like me, leaving things out in the hopes that inspiration will strike!!!

Congrats on being number one! As for me, I'm number 131!!! hee

Au grenier de la mère Michelle said...

Smell's like valentine! Love the paper!

Ali said...

Oh you are SO not the only one with a collection of stamps that have yet to be used - in fact, I dread to think how many unused stamps I have! :lol:

Some lovely looking projects on your desk there... and a rather impressive display of SU inkpads! :D

Thanks for sharing.

Twiglet said...

Lots to snoop on your desk May! Brrrr thats a very cold photo - we haven't had snow but its pretty cold here today.

The Crafty Chick said...

When i stuck my head out the window Sunday morning, all i could see were marks all over the garden where our 2 cats had been frocklicking like utter crazies in the snow. They love it, jumping rolling and chasing about, and the snow was so light and dry, i don't think it was that cold. Well,they certainly don't seem to feel it.

Erika said...

Hi May, gosh you've got some snow....it should be up here in the North of Scotland!! It's nice not to have it for a change. Wrap up warm and enjoy all your goodies on your desk....it looks very busy this week, enjoy!

Sew Sweet said...

so very true May, i have about 300 stamps at least half have never been used. Ive had a break from cardmaking for 12 months and have just started colouring again with my copics. So i have made a pact with myself that i have to use all my stamps at least once before i buy any more!!! oh and papers, i have enough to make 1000 cards lol but we always want more and they are s pretty to look lol
We had lots of snow too, the kids loved it so it was worth it.
thank you so much for visiting my blog and becoming a follower, please pop back tomorrow and check out the give-a-way :0)

Lots of lovely things going on there. I like the heart stamp and I agree about having something in front of you for a while to inspire you.

Susan Flynn said...

You've got lots going on there May and yes I have loads of unused stamp, papers and stash sigh!! Tomorrow going to the Trafford Centre as there is a craft show on there so no doubt will get loads of new stuff to covet and not use lol. Hugs Susan x

My name is Cindy said...

Hellooo May, thanks for popping by to see me and becoming a follower! Lovely to see you! Did you join in with my giveaway? I do hope you will. I would hate for anyone to discover how much stash (never mind the stamps) that has never been used in this room. Well, I'm stockpiling for my retirement in case I can't afford to buy anything new..... that's my excuse anyway!! Eesk is looking nice and creative, it's love everywhere as far as I can see!! TFS Cindy #58

Hi May,
The desk looks great, very productive, and I love the tags, I joined that group because of you, now I've got to get taggin'! Love the hearts, you know I love "Sir Timmy" (is that what you call him?) too. Have a great week, thanks for your comments.

Hello May, Thank you for visiting my craft space, i wasn't expecting as that much snow here in Kent so was rather surprised on Sunday morning, your desk looks very inspiring love those little wooden boxes. Hope you have a great week lou x

Hardwick Creations said...

I love your workspace...very busy, looks like you've been having lots of fun. I wonder if your kitty is related to my old boy? We have no need for a heater at the moment, the sun is doing that job awfully well (35 degrees celcius yesterday and 36 forecast for today).
Ah, the snow, so refreshing. Hope you are keeping safe!

Spyder said...

ohoo that klooks cold! So glad we haven't had snow here, did have a tny bit that melted about 45 minutes away...cold but no snow (yay!) Crafty space looks nice and busy!!
Have a great crafty week HaPpY WoYwW

Sandy said...

Okay dear heart - I am gonna get arthritis from scrolling down so far to leave a comment. Your desk looks like one creative crafter to me and I love your cat. I want snow so bad I could spit and look at all your snow. I love England and wish so badly that we could go back. Thanks for your sweet comment.
Sandy

Ohhh Snap said...

Smart cat! Lots of lovely crafty-ness on your desk :D. Lookit all those stamps! That Tombow is one of my favorites, especially for getting a little dimension on bits too thin for foam (put it on, let it dry, attach to something). Even in the "dry" state it's sticky as the dickens lol. #80

sandee said...

Brrrrrrrrrrr is correct, I'd be huddled up to the rediator too with your kitty! lol Just letting you know I nominated you for the Liebster blog award :) If you want to pop over and claim it: http://inthehillsofnorthcarolina.blogspot.com/

Raven's Rest Studio, Jennifer Conway said...

Looks like there's TONS of fun stuff going on at your work space! Thanks for the peek! *smiles* ~Jen

Glad to see the snow and I'm glad you have it and not us. Wonderful winter here. I love working with hearts and you have a lot scattered about. Have fun with them. Enjoy the week

Hi, what a great desk, the heart theme projects look super but the snow definitely does not, furball has the right idea about staying by the radiator. Have a lovely day, Laura

Jumbleberries said...

That looks a very productive desk, thanks for sharing. And with all that snow you are better to stay in and craft!

Happy WOYWW! Enjoyed my visit. Sure glad the snow is there and not here! I only like it on Christmas day. Have a good week!

Kim Dellow said...

Wow just look at all that snow! Love the sneak at your desk! Kim

MaggieC said...

Well doen for the Number 1 spot this week. In spite of being an hour earlier linking this week, I am still way down the list. Cats are not daft are they? Mind you, ours used to try going out of the back door, put one foot out and rush back in, glaring at me for putting that white stuff there. then they would rush to the front door only to find it was the same white stuff there as well. Then they would sulk. Take care in this bad weather. xx Maggie #89

Sam said...

Brrr! I am feeling quite cold now! We did not get much so I am a little envious.
Lovely work going on there on your desk! and lovely card on today's posting.

Cardarian said...

Your desk has lovely projects on it and also a lot of Crafty Individual Stamps which are one of my favourite! Ha, ha I see the whole of England had a surprise snow morning! For us it is a normal thing but of course we live under the Alps!
Thank you for visiting my blog and becoming a follower - I am now following you too ha, ha....
Hugs,
Cardarian

lisa said...

I think we are all guilty of having stamps that have never seen the light of day, I know I do. That should be a new challenge, to ink up uninked stamps!!
Your finished hearts card is gorgeous, I had a peek as am so late visiting.
You certainly got plenty of snow, we had a tiny new sprinkle yesterday but nothing compared to last weekend.
Thanks for your lovely comments. I have become a follower too.

Sherry Edwards said...

What a romantic desk you have this week with all those hearts on it! I know just what you mean about owning stamps you haven't used! All in good time eh!

Lovely snowy photos. We had several sets of prints in our snow this morning - looked like they'd been a fox fight or something!

Thanks for already stopping by my desk this week :)
