WOYWW 67

This week, I'm afraid the workspace is very bare for WOYWW, I can only apologise but its been a bit of a busy week and I have managed to blog on days other than wednesday  (gasps in amazement), from my prev blog you can see that on Monday evening I was very busy getting a Tim Holtz ticket, and then yesterday I was sorting out my finances, bah humbug, I added one deposit in twice, which means that the new carpet we bought for our stairs and is being fitted this weekend, we couldn't actually afford!!!!!!, oooopss. .  but we have been without carpet for coming up for 2 years, so we had to bite the bullet at one point, how expensive are they, even the reasonably priced ones, the upshot is we will be living out the kitchen cupboards this week as no money for food, I get paid Monday at least, oh and before you ask I paid for Tim ticket out of my own money.

Now if you look up by my DI pads you can see a lovely ATC I won on Minxys blog, it is gorgeous, (and sorry I havent thanked you yet Minxy, I will, I promise) the drink with a straw in, because I have just been to the dentist (more expense) and also on the other side a new stampotique stamp designed by the lovely Jo Capper-Sandon.  So I am going to have to cut back my spending as need to save for hotel at Tim Holtz do and petrol and spending money, so will have to draw horns in a bit, better not do it too far it could be painful.

Now to my lovely commenters, please can you just add your Mr Linky number at the end of your comment, then I will be able to return the visit more efficiently,  I know its a bit a**l, but I cant help myself, and if I cant visit anyone else I like to visit you, will do the same on all my comments this week, you never know it might catch on.

Have a great week you all and please let me know if anyone else is going to see Tim in Feb.

I like the way you hang things up above making use of every bit of space. You definitely deserve the carpet after such a long wait.

It's no 8 here. Sadly couldn't afford to get a ticket for Tim (but sooooo regretting it now....) Love your space today! Hope you don't starve...

Julia Dunnit said...

Know what you mean about carpet - it's a shock, huh! Am so glad you got a ticket to go to Tim's workshop, but you won't go on about it till Feb will ya - or I may have gone green and stopped talking to you by then!! Your lovely tidy desk means I can see more! Have to go visit and see Jo's stamps now, too!

It's not like you Siobhan to have a desk without a project on the go...but I'll let you off for this week aa I guess the cost of the carpet and the success of getting a Tim ticket sent you into meltdown. So pleased you got a ticket, see you there, it's gonna be a blast.

Hi. Thanks for visiting my blog.
You asked about the hydrangea flowers and what I use them for. I simply use them instead of paper flowers or if I need a small flower for an embellishment. I bought them because I don't have any growing in my own garden and I loved the colours.
If you have a wander through my blog you will see them on a few pieces.

Love your space :-) Are you going to do anything with the torso or leave it unadorned? Oh too much lovely stash and stuff around and not enough dosh eh? we know it well.
Linky number 77 - being dozy of course I thought you'd meant us to leave the number with our comment on Julia's blog and wondered how it would work duh!

You may not have any money for food this week, but at least you got that ticket to see TH. You know where your priorities are, at least. Your craft space looks lovely, too. What more could you ask for?

Sarah said...

Your desk looks great

Looks lovely and organised. Feel for you on the budget front - I have times like that - do I buy those new papers or feed my children - tough choice!! ;-) Christine (Link No. 5)
