WOYWW #275


I've been meaning to join in again with WOYWW for ages now so after having a big clean up in my craft room over the weekend, I thought I'd link up a couple of photos

Not too much going on in the photos this week as I'm still trying to keep them tidy but you can see all my essential bits and pieces - Promarkers, tape, ink pads etc.  And on the right hand side in the photo above you can see my new Sue Wilson bow die - one of my best purchases for a long time and perfect for someone like me who is 'ribbon challenged'!!


This second photo shows a bit more of the desk and you just seen one of the shelf units with all my stamps and on the other side my very expensive stamping mat - an old office supplies directory!

I promise next week there will be more going on!!
