It's the 104th WOYWW and it's ANNIVERSARY DAY!

Yup! These folks have been showing off their workspaces for two years under the fearless leadership of Julia!!!! I jumped in later, but have found so many fabulous bloggy friends through this wonderful event each week! And...just to keep with tradition, of course, I was sure NOT to clean my desk for this week...I know you guys like the scavenger hunt that these photos have become anyway, so here goes....


Yup. That's what it looks like this morning! Complete with that somewhat humid haze that seems to be visible in the photo...who knew? HA! Let's see, what's in there today....the twine I used on yesterday's card is in the photo, my brand-new-yet-to-be-inked Kokeshi Cuties stamps from Samantha Walker are sitting there waiting for some happy stamping time, the loot from my trips to the Scrapbook store over the weekend, (yes, you read that correctly...there were two trip(S). You see, I had to go on Friday to pick up the EZMount I had requested that they order and, well, I had to pick up a few things while I was there because I have a strict rule that every time I visit my lss I MUST spend $20 AFTER the 20% discount they give on every purchase to show my support....well, then The Hubbums just so *happened* to buy a hybrid bike over the weekend and...well, we shall just say that is was substantially MORE than $20 so he felt minorly guilty and thought we should go to the scrapbook store to kill some time...now THAT my friends is my kind of time killing, and, of course I had to meet my goal, so.....YUP! Good scrappy shopping weekend for ME!!! Check out all of those TIM HOLTZ goodies!!!!!! And that new Sewing tool....gonna see how that goes....anyway...that was like the longest parenthetical addition EVER. Just say'n.)


....and.... you can see the neat brown velvet bag that came from a bottle of bourbon that one of the other teachers gave to The Hubbums because she doesn't care for it and the head broke off the horseman on the top of the bottle so she couldn't sell it...SO....The Hubbums got REALLY good bourbon (okay, so I guess I did too, but...) and I got a REALLY COOL headless horseman that will TOTALLY be used for an art piece once the lid is no longer needed! HA!

Anyway...here's a closer look at the goods:

Stuff on my desk

I suppose I should show you something pretty today, too....hmmmm....

let's see.....

How about this?!


This is one of the ATC's I entered in the Retro Cafe Art ATC Frame contest! It ends today, so wish me luck!!!!


Wow! For a quiet day I certainly did chatter a lot! HA! OH!!! One more thing! Don't forget to head on over to Scrolls Work today because the Going Out of Business sale is going strong and today is the first day at 50% off!!!!!

Happy Wednesday!!!!


  1. What a fabulous stash of goodies on your desk! Happy WOYWW!

  2. Hey there! What a fabulous stash trove you have on your desk!
    I love your ATC, I'm sure you will do well :)
    It's looks like I'll be sending you my PiF gift, all the way from Wales in the UK! After snooping around your des, I've found a little something extra to put in your gift box-very British-I hope you like it! If you could send me your snail mail details at; sallymorgan_rascal@yahoo.co.uk I will get it posted out Airmail to you!
    *hugs* Sal x

  3. LOL Jingle, UMMMMMMMMMMMM I would be going nuts with a MESS like that, Im the total opposite to you in regards to my work space, I use something and it gets put back in its place. BUT HEY that sure is alot of nice goodies to look at. Live your ATC, wish you luck!

  4. It's good to make the hubby feel guilty and indulge you in some extra crafting supplies! And while my crafting desk is always clear, don't look too closely at my floor, as that is where things tend to stack and build until I have my own private fort built up around me. My husband says he's going to add a mote and bridge so I can escape my craft room once in a while. (grin)

  5. Whoa, girl! I think you win the prize for messiest workspace EVER! And that's a compliment! What a bunch of supplies you have waiting to play with and explore. Your frame ATC is lovely...I've never seen one of those before! Happy WOYWW!

  6. Because you are such a prolific creator of pretties, I would say your work table is appropriate to that title! Being a sloooooow creator, I don't get to use being prolific as an excuse for having a million things on my table so - phooey! - I have to keep it clean. (Besides, I am an admittedly anal Virgo type - LOL!Love seeing other artists' clutter but not my own.) YAY for two wonderful trips to get goodies! And BIGGER YAY for the amazing framed ATC. If I had a vote at Retro Cafe, I'd use it to vote for YOU! KEEPING MY FINGERS CROSSED FOR YOU!

  7. awesome atc & love your desk! Looks like the craft fairy had a party ;) Have fun with all the new toys

  8. Well, the desk...has some fun things on it! It's like a crafting game of I Spy :) and I did spy some items I can't wait to see in use (sew easy, little white dolls, SW Stamps)! Gonna be some good stuff!!

    LOVE the ATC...beautiful!

  9. Wow - great desk .. . but must say ... that ATC is really something SPECIAL. I don't think I've ever seen a prettier or more intricate ATC.


    Hugs, Sandra Take a peek at MY DESK here

  10. OMG! it's even worse than mine! And I want my ATC frames!!!! Hugs, Valerie & Zora (my Panda)

  11. Jingle
    You don't need luck because that is quite fabulous. Gorgeous as well.

  12. Wow! I'd love to look thru all that you have on your desk!

  13. WOW, that IS pretty. I hope that you win, because you deserve it.

    Also, you are affiliated with Unity, right? Well, they need to make a CUTE gnome stamp set. I have mentioned it to them, even mentioning that the gnome should be cute like your guy, but so far nothing.....don't you think that would be CUTE? I used to despise gnomes, but jeesh, they have grown on me! Just the really cute ones, though...

  14. Your desk is so full of fab goodies, am so envious Jingle...sob sob......
    Wishing you well with your fabulous piece. Annette x

  15. scrummy looking desk, laughing at hubbys guilt allowing you to go scrapbook shopping, will have to remember that one! gorgeous ATC!

  26. You need to get in there and clean up that mess young lady. Ooops, you aren't my daughter;)

    My workspace gets like that. I actually just spent the better part of this evening clearing it so I can lay out fabric. Gotta cut out and make BillHubby a new shirt!

  27. This blog post is FULL of goodies!

  28. Your ATC is absolutely lovely! I love the glitter and the vintage quality. :) I'm happy to say my work space is actually somewhat clean...but that won't last for long. LOL Take care.

  29. I am so envious with all the newest of goodies to play and explore with. Your new card is again Lovely! Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  30. Your ATC is absolutely gorgeous and I love all the little details you have added. Thrilled to be receiving my PIF (thank you in advance) it will be flying to Australia. I will email my details this evening. I love the collection of goodies on your desk including the velvet bag.

  31. I’m making a really big effort to get around everyone seeing as it’s a special week. Mind you it’s taking forever and I have a bit of a numb bum now so It’ll be back to my random visits next week I think. I just don’t know how some people manage it every week.

    And breath.Lol!
    Such a lot to show and tell us this week Jingle and just look at all those lovely new goodies to play with. If your weren’t so far away I’d be round to help you try them all out.

    Happy WOYWW 2nd Anniversary and …………….
    Happy Crafting!

  32. Thanks for letting me rummage through your desk ....that sewing thingy looks interesting.

  41. Glad you have pop-up comments, because I wanted to say I read EVERY WORD and think "hubbums" must have felt really guilty to WANT to spend time at a LSS. Good for you for supporting them, too. I'm a bit late getting here this week, but didn't want to forget to wish you a happy belated WOYWW 104 from #9.

  42. Happy WOYWW I'm a litle late this week. Hugs Pam x
