WOYWW #91 - Lots of Goodies!!!

 Good morning all... welcome to my desk again, especially to those of you from the link of the wonderful Julia at Stamping Ground. If you have not had a look there, do go and see how other crafters fill their work spaces!!!

As you can see, I have some wonderful new goodies to play with, following my WONDROUS day with Tim Holtz!! What a fabulous man and great teacher, and what a fabulous day we all had. If you want to see what I did, just scroll down to my last post or follow this link...

I have now got lots of new bits and pieces to play with, and must find some places to put them all...opps!!!! but best goodie of all is below - that is my new Vagabond!!! What a difference it will make to my crafting now I don't have to hurt my hands as much, winding a handle!!! My arthritis stops me from cutting chipboard and thicker stuff, so now I can cut whatever I want to!!! Tim told me I would love it and he was not wrong...

Anyway, have a great day and thanks for coming over to see me again. I am off to finish the card for my lovely grandson's birthday - an 8x8 rendition of the Carling Cup because he is a real Bluenose and was SO excited that Birmingham won on Sunday - only beaten in excitement by his mum!!!!! Pete would have been just as pleased by his team winning something, finally... Thanks for your support
Love and Light

I'm so glad you had a brilliant day with the man himself. The photos are great and so is that box, WOW!!
You've certainly treated yourself with the Vagabond, I was soo tempted but as I can wind a handle fairly well I couldn't justify it just yet!!
Have fun with it all and don't forget to show us what you create.
Hugs Lisax

Helen said...

And I thought I was good at shopping, lol!! I am going to regret -probably forever - not getting to Artsycraft. Great to know you enjoyed it. I was pleased Birmingham won too - ore more truthfully, that Arsenal lost, lol!!
Been to look at your box - stunning!!

lisa said...

Hi Frankie.
Me again!!! I just wanted to say Sheena made it very clear on her programmes that it wasn't a new idea, she learnt it years ago and is just adapting it by using embossing powders, distress inks and the things we all have these days.
Right I'm won't bother you again. I have to go and check out that technique for your tag challenge this week, it looks very intriguing.
Hugs Lisax

Andrea - Wales, UK said...

Hi Frankie, thanks for stopping by. We certainly won't forget that workshop in a hurry will we??

Have a fun week.....Andrea.xx(28)

Elizabeth said...

Oooh, Frankie, lots of lovely stash and so much that I'm now feeling a lot less guilty after my spendathon yesterday. If I was the envious type, and I'm not, honest, I'd be envying you your Vagabond. Have a great weekend and enjoy playing with your new goodies. Elizabeth x #73

Sue from Oregon said...
