WOYWW #145 - Finished and New...

Well another whishhh and whizzz, and someone turned my clock to Wednesday, AGAIN!!! Unless there are secretly more Wednesdays in a week than any other day ... mmmm... - well she finally lost it, guys!!! And we all know what THAT means, eh?? WHAT!!! YOU don't know??? Well whatever planet have you been on... blast off to the Stamping Ground and get enlightenment!!
I have finally finished the outside and inside paper work of my suitcase. Only remains the trimmings in the inside and the mini to go in with photos... I am really pleased with it for my first, but would try it again now I get the hang of it...

 All the outside closures are on and the handle...

 It's really twee, isn't it?? I will definitely try something like it again... I have ordered another project from the wonderment that is Laura Denison, and that is a curio cabinet - something really different and totally impractical!!!

 The inside is really jolly and it only remains to have it's strip fitted to hold ickle phials of sand and other bits, across the middle of the lid pocket. The mini will fit into the case, with embellies and photos, finally putting to bed the Egyptian holiday, which ended in such chaos so many moons ago!!!



And what is THIS you spy??? Well, I hear you shout, you said you wouldn't get another one, as they have proved so unreliable for you!!!! ... Yes, dear reader, I KNOW you are right, but I tried to use my cuttle bug the other day and I was USELESS - yes, folks, more useless than usual!!! So I am trying again from another supplier, with the forlorn hope that I shall be more lucky this time...

And finally, a new light. I treated myself to an Ottlite, as the desk lamp I inherited from my lovely Pete, finally gave up the ghost the other day... I have a daylight bulb in another lamp, but this one makes it so there are no shadows at all on my desk, yippee!!!

That was finally, because I can't show you what I am working on - if I did I would have to kill you!! tee hee... I have started planning and sorting my DT pieces for The Artist Stamper Team Blog, for next month. I do hope you lot will come and support me when I am finally "on show" !!! ??
Have a great week...
Love and light

I really should dust off my daylight lamp (it's on top of a bookcase....) for the evenings when I craft... Love the suitcase - I was looking at the one I did months (more) ago, thinking I should re-do it as I don't like it now.... another 'to do' project!
Hope your mum continues with her good week!

I love that sturdy new lamp - I don't work in my craft room at night as the lighting is poor. Well that's my excuse for sitting in front of TV and knitting!! x Jo

That suitcase is fab - just needs Phineas Fogg or Passpartout to turn up and claim it :D
I honestly couldn't craft without my daylight lamp, I love it and am contemplating getting one for downstairs as well.
Glad to hear that your mum is having a better week. Hope that you are having one too :)

I'm really in need of a daylight lamp after the long dark Winter we've had. Not only would it help me see but it would brighten my spirits too.
Glad to read that your Mum is having a reasonable time, as I'm sure it makes life easier for you too.
Thanks for your comment,

Eh? Blogger ate my message!
What I said was along the lines of....fantastic suitcase there and woo hoo for the new light!
I do love LD designs and fancy the new cabinet. I have one of her patters for my Prague pics but I wanted to use particular papers so that will mess my desk up ey!
Hat hair - darn it. But I would rather be warm with flat hair than cold with spikey hair!

I would be lost without my ottlight! I love it!

CraftygasheadZo said...

Love how the suitcase turned out, it's amazing how you can see your way through these projects. I have some simple boxes I'd like to try and alter but have never plucked up the courage to have a go! Our warm weather bit us yesterday afternoon, come back and look at my blog again!

I'm having a terrible time getting Blogger to cooperate with me, so apologize for being so late this week. I love how that suitcase turned out. SO glad to see it in its finished shape.
