What's on your Workdesk? Wednesday 163

On Saturday my friend Julie and I went to the Artstamps Stamp and Papercraft Fair at Newbury Racecourse, it was brilliant and yesterday I took a photo of my desk before I put my purchases away.


Sorry it is such a rubbish photo!  As you can see I bought loads of card and envelopes, always a good thing to buy at the shows.  The stamps are, from the left, Hobbyart, Lavinia and Clarity - the corner stamps sitting on the card are Clarity too.  Inkpads, paper, sticky stones and a small selection of Flexmakers to try.  The Flexmarkers were £1 each which were a bargain!  Sitting on the Kraft card is a Die set  and at the back is a wooden house waiting to be altered.  All I need to do now is play with everything!  I wore my WOYWW badge and looked for other WOYWWers but didn't see anyone.  I'm sure you were there though.  I did meet up with some other friends from Bournemouth (where I live) though.  Where are the photo's? you ask.  I forgot to take any! How hopeless am I!
 I must mention Maria over at Inkymits who was demonstrating on the Clarity Stamp stand, who was really helpful at the end of the day when I was in a bit of state cause of my M.E. symptoms.  Maria was so kind, she is also mega talented and her blog is definitely worth a visit. The lady from Clarity who served me was really helpful too, unfortunately I don't know her name. To join in the Wednesday desk snooping fun visit Julia at her fab blog and see what everyone is up to.
Welcome to my new followers,  I will really appreciate your visits and comments. Thank you for popping by, Take care, Christine xx

Nice stash - I was there Saturday morning for a couple of hours but don't have the badge! Hope you are feeling better. (Not linking to WOYWW as limited crafting just now!)

Oh wow! look at all those goodies :o) Glad you had a good time at the fair! Have fun with your new stash! Look forward to seeing how you alter your house, I picked a couple up recently, they're a slightly different style to yours but the same type of thing, I haven't settled on what to do with them yet! x April #86

Nice purchases - I have some of those houses completed (think 1st, 4th and 5th October last year and a recent one I made myself if you want to take a peek.)
Take care - glad people were kind to you.

Oh Christine,

You have lots of fun things to play with there!!!

I've had a sickly week and wasn't able to link up to WOYWW and really missed it. This week is a different story though -- so looking forward to it. Hope you are feeling better.

Hugs,
