WOYWW 231 anyone need a hand

Hi Peeps
Happy Wednesday everyone. time again to hop around the world's desks, lots of inspiration to be found. Julia has all the info. see it here at the stamping ground      you could even join in if you dare..... go on you know you want to.

Anyway after all the snippet activity of last week there isn't much going on at my desk this week...
It looks like some other (little) person has been playing with my paints again, she left her finger prints though so I think I know who it is.
I think I may make it into a birthday card for Grandad next week LOL

I had a busy weekend with lots of other stuff to do.... Oh and I went to Threads.... a textile show in Farnham.  It was like the  Knitting and Stitching show but smaller.
I was a good day I didn't buy much, just some lovely buttons, new and vintage ( I may have commented on my love of buttons before), some fabric and threads and......

I brought this tape and it is amazing.
If you knit or sew and hate ends getting tangle you need this stuff!

 Finally I have  finally 'started' some Christmas preparation, I found some stamps out.... that's it,
 I haven't actually done anything with them yet..... maybe next week
Enjoy your crafty journey and have fun in your space this week
 If you are kind enough to leave a comment please leave your Mr linky number so I can find you easily and return the compliment

  3. I think the card for granddad sounds brilliant, I bet he'd love it. I've got a thing for buttons as well! Well done on digging out the Xmas stamps...great start!!! Hugs. Pam#37

  4. I think that hand print artwork is screaming out to be made into a gift or a card, brilliant too. Good for you on digging out your Christmas stamps it really isn't far away now.

    Happy crafting and Thanks for sharing.

    Happy WOYWW

  13. I see you like Craft Stamper... There's a challenge on their blog at the mo, you might like to join in with that. It's all about splatters this time.
    We'll done on starting with Christmas stuff!
    Thanks for the snoop.

  14. Oh I think grandad will love a card covered on hand and finger prints! what a lovely idea! I'm surprised that you found some buttons that you don't already have!

  15. Hey! We're on the same page. I got out the big bin of Christmas paper... but that's it. We can't rush these things you know. Next week I'll get out the stamps too and you can get out the paper too. Also, I think you have a bit more than fingerprints for the tiny paint perpetrator!

  16. We got our Tim stencils from Simon Says Stamp on line. I think Dy's shop Art from the Heart has them in the UK so postage wont be as bad.

  17. I love finding the "little ones" artwork around. There are times when it really gives me inspiration, like you turning yours into a card. That is a great idea.I can't believe Christmas is coming so soon. After visiting so many blogs this evening I'm realizing that there are lots of people making stuff already.I try but am usually doing the presents last minute. Maybe after reading everyone's posts like yours, I might get started a little earlier. Thanks for the inspiration! Have a Wonderful WOYWW week, Rasz #102

  18. Aren't crafty people the best? We look at a handprint and see a piece of art I'm the making. Very cool.

    Thank you for visiting.
    Happy belated WOYWW. Love Rachel,

  19. Aaaw, love the handprint and it will make up into such a fab card. Buttons... very hard to resist aren't they? LOL Annette #14

  20. There's something about a little hand print that always gets to me...I'm not sure why but it does.
    I keep thinking I'll start Christmassy goodies but before I know it another week has gone by. Hence not joining in with WOYWW lately.
    Have a wonderful weekend ;D

  21. Little persons can be very helpful when it comes to creating art! ;D

    Have a nice weekend!

  22. Hi Janet,

    The show you went to sounds like it was a lot of fun!! I've started some Christmas presents but have a ways to go. I usually give friends knitted dish cloths and now I think they've come to expect them!

    Happy belated WOYWW
