WOYWW #209

Happy Wednesday everyone! That means its What’s on Your Work Desk Wednesday, as envisioned by Julia at the Stamping Ground.

 OK, so I only came up to drop off the stash from my Heirloom Stamp Show weekend…after all, I have a cake to bake for works big bark-off/bakeoff (don’t ask, but wish me luck!) So, here are all my wonderful goodies; not bad as we only really purchased from 8 booths! LOL! Rubbernecker and Judikins did us in; and Our Daily Bread became just as dangerous! LOL!..So many stamps, mounted and unmounted…and see that cool yellow organizer; it folds!! Perfect for when I start, say, my Christmas stamping, but can’t have it take over the whole room yet. And now it has all the embossing folders, some stencils,  a few Memory Box dies, and a few sheets of pearl embellishments. And, darn that Judikins…she showed an awesome background technique using Mica Gloss inks, so of course we had to buy a few. I didn’t get the gold or green because I thought I had those; I actually have Colorbox Mica Magic reinkers…hmmm, might be the same?

So, I had to check..real quick..the cake you know…so here are some quick samples.  And of course, as there is so much ink on her sheets, she would then pick up enough to ink a stamp; I’m stingy, but still got this shell image (neat stamp.huh?)  And since I was playing, I just had to try these new layered floral stamps from Rubbernecker…before I forgot the technique she showed us.  How very neat are those…and fairly quick.  I’ll show you better when I have time. 

Oh, but I do have to show my ATC from last week’s 4th Anniversary…hopefully everyone has them buy now. And I'm going to start on next year' avoid this year's last minute mayhem.


So there you have it…oh, and I managed to make the cake and pudding, and not burn the coconut while toasting, so all I have to do between the board meetings is assemble my Lemon Coconut Trifle. Fingers crossed; I have a rep to uphold!! See you next week.


  1. I clicked on the photos to see them large...that shell is STUNNING, looks like the quality PSX stamps used to have. Love what you managed to make at speed before during and after baking...imagine what you can do when you have time? #38

  2. That looks like a lot of happy stamping! Crafty shows are sooo fun. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #100

    Guess what arrived today? So I got to see my ATC in the flesh. Much better than your photo! Stunning!

  4. PS Where is my slice of cake?

  5. Oh My gosh, I feel a rising panic about time just reading your post! The mica paints are gorgeous, I'm intrigued by this lifting technique. Good luck with the bark off!!

  9. Well, okay, hmmm. I'm sure you had a very lovely desk and lots to share and ATCs and what not, but for some reason all I can think about is coconut toasting and lovely homemade cake to eat ... !
