Your BOSS is adorable. She is one super cutie. Bleubeard will be in love if he sees her! (OK, he's neutered but it makes good story). I've been having a terrible time leaving comments on blogs tonight. I can't get them to post. I'm starting to get really frustrated. Happy WOYWW from # 7.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

WOW, may. It posted! I'm not so frustrated now (grin). I forgot to tell you how lucky you are to get all that stash on your desk. STILL #7.

Deb said...

I can see that you would need those things very much, all essentials! Enjoy your new goodies!
Happy WOYWW, Debxx

Hi May,

I spy some things that I'd like to have on your desk. Well, I say some but really mean ALL! I've been good about not buying certain things but still need to buy a few trinkets here and there. No harm!

Happy WOYWW
Hugs,

Oh, well, yes, I can quite easily see how you needed all that stuff! Oh dear, now I "need" that newsprint stamp too!

Ooh, you've got that newsprint HA large stamp, that's on my wish list too! There's no such thing as too much stash! Love the Boss, give her tummy a tickle from me.

Create With Joy said...

Love your desk...love the Boos more...happy WOYWW to you!

Neesie said...

I have a similar boss here May...only she's the pooch version.
She'd never think to move out of the way either.
Your desk looks like a treasure trove...I've got to get myself a lamp like your's especially before we lose the light here and winter comes to call. Have a great WOYWW :D

VonnyK said...

Love all your goodies, would like to get a stamp or two myself one day. Knowing me, I would do it upside down! Thanks for your comment on my green theme.
Have a great week.

Darnell J Knauss said...

Good for you, May! I figure we are just doing our bit to help the small business owners when we shop, right?! You got yourself some awesome goodies! (I've no # yet as I won't post until tomorrow - only Tuesday night here. I'm getting a head start on visiting those 'cross the pond who've already posted.)

Sara S. said...

I never do well on a stash diet. I seem to find more cute things when I say I won't buy anything than I do when I'm not limiting my purchases.

Your boss is adorable!

okienurse said...

stash diets never work for me either cause I am always falling off the wagon. I love the pics of the Boss. I have two here and they run the place.
Hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing! Vickie #48

Happy WOYWW, Helen 21

Neet said...

Well May, that's not too bad a spend (ouch!) is it? Oh why not treat yourself when you see what you like. Thanks for sharing and thanks for the photos of Boss who seems to be enjoying the sleep.
Hugs, Neet #4 xx

I did a spend, spend, spend at Harrogate, but you are right, sometimes we just have to do it. Love Tim's Altered flower die, I didn't get that one, alas. Regards, Anne #66

sandra de said...

All those goodies on your desk are must haves. Like everyone else I love the newsprint stamp. Boss is gorgeous.

Tracey Fletcher KIng said...

Stash diet sounds like it should be banned... there is no fun in that... love the photos of your cat... I do love how they sleep in those bizarre positions...happy woyww... Trace #50

Doone said...

ah - stash obesity - a dangerous disease! but I can see why May, you have bought some lovely things,

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Awww. How sweet. Your desk is looking very full of inspiration to me. I like what I can see of the newsprint stamp too. Must investigate. This is the trouble with WOYWW - I always find stuff to buy!

Bella said...

You can still join in the Creative Chemistry 101, go on over to Tim's blog and you can do it in your own time...I am doing it and it is awesome, saw your comment on Inky Minxys blog about wishing you had joined...love the BOSS, every house should have one!

Sam said...

Clocked the Hero Arts stamp and TH die straight away! Lucky you. Lovely lot of stash there and why not spoil yourself? I am hoping to do Ally Pally in September as it doesn't clash with our anniversary this year! See you there?

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

Ooh LOVELY.

I DEFINITELY need that HA newsprint stamp too.

HAPPY WOYWW

Lunch Lady Jan said...

It's a bit like real diets, isn't it - once you've told yourself you can't have something, you want it all the more!! We are perverse creatures sometimes :) I'm exactly the same with fabric...can't resist it even though I've promised myself to use up my stash first...sigh... :)
Hugs, LLJ #68 xx

Craftychris said...

Wow, such a cool stash! the Boss definitely looks like, well, the boss!! Enjoy your new stuff xx

Helen said...

Hi May - No room to work with your newly acquired goodies! You will just have to sit and admire them a while longer.....How can cats look comfortable wherever they end up? Have a good week and thanks for stopping by, Helen ♯35

I like your workspace area. Look at all of those pens. I'm not a stamper so I'm curious what you use those for? :) LOTS of colors there.

Happy WOWW! #38

Gorgeous stash and a gorgeous kitty, May. One can't live without either!! Thanks for your comment on my blog. Yes, I'm getting there... We've been out with Mum and Dad today and just got back, and I'm totally bushed, so no tidying today I'm afraid!

Happy WOYWW,

cute kitty!

scrappymo! said...

Thanks for kind thoughts about my husband...I amended my post to read mild heart attack.
We thought maybe a mini blood clot as he had blurry vision in his good eye He has had a mini clot behind his eye once before.

But the blood enzyme test and blood test for troponin levels showed positive for heart attack. They take 6 hours to show and he had had some shortness of breath and pounding feeling in his chest earlier at work.

He hates the hospital so was pushing to be released. Because it was a mild heart attack and he will get good follow up care, they released him.
He's on heart medication now, so that will contribute to his recovery.

Mors said...

Princess LouLou! She is such flirt when a camera comes out. It appears she's only on the floor because your desk is so full this week. Lots of Love your DD, Mors xx

DottyA Cards & Things said...

Anne said...

Boss is gorgeous and so iare those lovely goodies you have there. Anne x

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Are you sure The Princess isn't just hiding her face in shame at the shopping spree in that first photo? I completely understand why you NEEDED those items. I get it! Stash diet or no, some things just need to be got. I like how the WOYWW button gets a place of honor on the easel!

Yogi said...

thanks for the comments on my blog. Even though I haven't done a WOYWW today... too busy playing and shopping. BIG GRIN and I can totally understand your shopping spree.
Have a great day

Morti said...

ooh - I think I'm gonna come and camp out at your desk this week - new Tilda's. I know some people think they look like Moomins, but I say there's a place for everything!

Thanks for stopping by...

Bellaidea said...

So cute all those Magnolias!

Bernice said...

Looks like you got lots of lovely new stash. Some cute cards in progress there too! Boss looks happy - our cat loves to get into my craftroom and chew up my paper flowers, etc!

MaggieC said...

Your Boss has obviously been talking to our little pup, she lies exactly where you want to walk, and then complains when you step on her by accident. As you say, attention seeking. You did have a good spend up didn't you. Does that mean you have to spend less at Ally Pally? Thank you for your visit and lovely comments about our new stamps. We are not sure what is happening for the future yet, but I will let you know. Have a good week. xx Maggie #5

Caz said...

Ooooooh - goodies!!!!! My stash diet is the same as my food diet - no will power!!!!
Boss is like our Jasper - guaranteed to be laid out wherever you want to tread!!

Ooh May you are a bad girl going on a spending spree! All those lovely goodies, where is the teenage boy sitting down image from? It looks great. I'm not going to Ally Pally this April as we are away. Will be the first one I've missed for years. Shame, we could have arranged to say 'hi'. Thanks for popping by to see me. Cindy ~17

fairyrocks said...

Beautiful card work and I love the 'Stash Diet' LOL. I think I have been on a cookie diet, yields much the same results...
Keep smiling and creating and thanks so much for stopping by.

I'm so late this week, blame my dentist, but determined to visit you. The Boss clearly knows how to get your attention. I did once read that our dear cats are responsible for many of the accidents in the home! Lovely lot of goodies on your desk - the newsprint stamp caught my eye immediately :) Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Elizabeth x #73
