WOYWW #108


The last Tuesday of each month is "Craft Night At Pickwells!" and so my desk is covered in crafty bargains when I shopped... well, craft night isn't just for crafting, you know!? *lol*

Anyhooo... Here's my desk:
My purple mini trunk and album is all finished (bar one page) - oh, if only we could learn to stop having giggling fits (or "Tena Moments" as we ladies over 40 like to call them *lol*) and actually do some crafting, then perhaps we'd have our projects finished. Still,  Mini etc on the bag covering my laptop on the left. Top right is the carousel - bearing in mind that until I came home from Pickwells, my desk was totally empty!  Propped up against the carousel is Tyrell's Vegetable Chips... scrummy-yummy! Well, I need a food break sometimes :) Now onto the interesting bits... I picked up some Papermania and Basic Grey double-sided papers... Gorgeous! next to them  coming toward the middle of the desk is a little plastic pot filled with feathers and a new pokey tool (yay!!!... actually, when shopping at Pickwells, my intention was to buy just the pokey tool... I kinda got waylaid by pretty things and spent a lot more *lol*).
I also purchased some Tim Holtz goodies... just a couple of little things, some 7 Gypsies book covers, a little cupcake chipboard mini-book (naked chipboard, 7 pages)... and a ton  of charms! I love these brass-like metal charms... so low-priced and an essential... I didn't want them - I needed them!
A close-up of the charms I bought except for a skull steam-punk one that I gave away to my Lou-Lou's (she's my best friend since I was 1 year old, so I'm allowed to call her my Lou-Lou's *lol*), and an angel I gave to my mum...
There are probably another ten designs I need to get hold of too... when Hubby goes on holiday with my Dad in September, I'll buy them then... Hubby gets a holiday, so I get guilt money *lol*
So... a slightly messier desk this week (nearly 1am on a Wednesday morning!)... but a happy crafter who's managed to craft, shop, giggle, and munch - all in just a few contented hours :)
Oh, and yes, that was little kitten ears you may have seen poking up from behind the desk in the first photograph... I've moved my desk away from the chairs so that the kittens are (supposedly! Ha!) unable to climb onto the desk and chew everything they can get their little teeth into. They're just about ready to re-home now, and although I'll miss them when they do go (IF they go), it will also be a bit of a relief to be able to craft in relative peace and quiet again.
Wanna see...? Oh, okay then...

Max is all camera-shy... but Misty, Sox, and Boo-Bear love all the attention :)

I love having a craft night and shopping night together. It's been awhile since I've been to a crop that had shopping with it. Loved coming home with layouts done and a bag of new goodies. I like what you got and yes you do need them for all the crafty projects you do. Those kittens are so cute and big.
