So, it is What's On Your Workspace Wednesday and I have some FUN desk shots to share with you today, let me tell you! Let's start with the current shot:

WOYWW 5.2.2012

Okay...regular readers...do you notice the change? Well, other than the fact that it is actually pretty clean right now? (I'm aware that is actually a really BIG change, but, alas, not the one of which I am speaking right now. HA!) Can you see it???? YUP! That's a brand new Fiskars big 'ole cutting mat on my desk and I LOVE IT! Wanna know the best part? SIX DOLLARS! Not. Even. Kidding. I got that sucker for $6 at CKC Manchester last weekend! LOVE!!!!

And...you can also see my stack 'o stamps there on my desk! Those are all Gourmet Rubber Stamps sets that I am dying to get inky!!!!

BUT...I really want to show you what my desk looked like when I got home from the convention! Ready for this, folks? I don't usually get to do these kinds of posts, so I'm gonna do it..just this once...here's my LOOT!!!!

CKC Loot!

I KNOW!!! RIGHT? Seriously, you guys! I met up with a couple of friends and we had SO. MUCH. FUN!!! I went a bit crazy on the washi tape. By a bit crazy I mean...well, you can see it...

Washi Tape SCORE!

That stack is a mix of Queen & Company and Love My Tapes. I am SO in love with them ALL!!!

paper and stamps

I picked up some Stamps of Life, Unity, and Jillibean Soup stamps. I {heart} stamps. Just say'n. AND... I finally got my hands on the Echo Park This & That collection that I have wanted for awhile now! I also found a few other sheets of paper I needed. Yup. Needed. Just say'n.


The CTMH rep had a buy 2 get one free ink deal, so I HAD to take advantage of that one!!! LOVE these new colors! The scissors you see there are from the Fiskars booth (same one where I got my $6 mat and a border punch for $8). They are ribbon scissors and they work BEAUTIFULLY! I am loving them! And they were only a dollar. *LOVE THAT!*

I only took one class and that was the Queen & Company Trunk Show, where we were given all of this! It was a 'lecture' class, so no project, but they showed lots of samples and talked about fun ways to use product and gave us a ton of stuff! YAY!

Queen & Company Trunk Show

And...here is a photo of Jen, Kerry, and me at the place we stopped for lunch! Fun times! It was a super great day!!!


(Oh..and since I'm sharing deals, anyway...that shirt I'm wearing in this photo I got at Anne Taylor Loft for around $3 or so. And it has become a favorite VERY quickly! LOVE THAT! Just say'n.)

I hope you don't mind me posting all of this! I just REALLY wanted to share! Have you ever gone on a super fun crafty shopping spree? 'Cause, dude...it ROCKS! Just say'n.

Jingle Out.


  1. You go girl, you got lots of goodies and love all the tapes! Love seeing The {Stamps} of Life set, that's one of my favorites!

  2. I'm dropping hints like crazy that that's what I want to do for Mother's Day....no dice yet :)

    Glad you had so much fun at CKC. Can't go to the one around here this year because it is a very busy weekend!

  14. Well I can't say what I love more.. your desk top, your goodies or your hair!!! Girl, I sure wish I had the guts to wear my hair that way...but age has a way of making you conform (not because you want to but because wrinkles and gravity wreck havoc!!)Ha!
    I have to say I am seriously loving all those goodies-I need to go to CKC Houston next month for sure!!!
    Cool you had an awesome scrappy time-I miss those:)

  15. Oh man Jingle! This reminds me of the pleasure I get from Scrap Haul videos on Youtube! I love to see great deals being had by scrappy "friends".

    Happy WOYWW Deb xx #141

  17. Oooh wowee, great goodies! Loving the washi tape!

  18. That mat was a HUGE bargain. Here in the states they sell for over $30.00. And of course, I love washi tape, too, although I've yet to find any in our craft stores. Happy WOYWW from #4 this week.

  19. What a fabulous haul of fun stuff!!

    I need to woyww link, yikes . . .


  20. I always THOUGHT you lived somewhere on the east coast. Now I know. How funny that I mistook Manchester for England, not NEW England! And yes, you are STILL one lucky crafter with that mat!

  21. wow super goodies,enjoy
    have a fab crafty week and
    happy woyww

  22. Dude. That's a lot of goodies. Just say'n! Dang! You rocked the deals. And believe it or not, I did suspect that the shiny new cutting mat was what I was supposed to notice was different. All that washi tape. Great papers. STAMPS! STUFF! So much awesomeness. I think I need ribbon scissors. I get so frustrated that my scissors make it fray. Grrr..! Although I have also heard of some magical ribbon snipper thing that cuts AND seals the edges of ribbon. Maybe have to find out more about that. I want to say by the folks who make that Sew Easy? I might be making that last part up. I do that sometimes.

  23. Wow! Wow! Wow! and Wow!
    Have I come to the right blog? Hee Hee! Love that Washi tape girl and what a bargain for that craft mat!
    And Lady.....where is the blue hair? LOL! xx

  24. What a fab lot of goodies - I'm gasping at those gorgeous ribbons and tapes. Your workspace looks great, especially with that big new mat - thanks for sharing - Hazel, WOYWW #10 x

  25. What's your address again? Just so we can come and play with you? Have fun with all the new goodies!

  26. Holy guacamole! That's a lot of new stuff to play with!!! You also found some great deals - from your mat to you top!!! Yep, you are my kind of shopper!!!

    Happy WOYWW
