WOYWW 241 piles of hot pink and a letter

Hi Peeps,
Wednesday again already, its been a busy week here in fairy thoughts grotto, so I'm sharing 2 desks this week, impressed eh .... don't be..... there are much better desks out there.
Hop over to chief desker Julia at stamping-ground. to see them all or even join in.... if you dare, beware it's addictive, but great fun.

The hot pink cards at the back are wedding invites mid production, lots of die cutting  and layering. On the left is my dry foam storage, I am using them on the other desk.

On my other desk is my page for  the-documented-life-project-112-challenge     I am joining in with.
The challenge this week is to encorporate an envelope. This page evolved rather differently than I planned, It is based on a letter I had to send last year which was very painful for me.

On a happier note I got these little beauties in Poundland.  These are packaged for nail art but will be very useful for paper crafting etc.... and, the little bottles will get used too.... Tim Holtz style.

Even happier at the end of last week was a package I received from Craft Stamper magazine and the Artistic Stamper

I was lucky enough to have won these in a free giveaway.
Thank you so much I love them. I have already used the calendar ones on my journal.
Anyway that's enough rambling from me ..... Go visit Julia and  many more interesting desks.
be seeing you .... If you leave your number that is :-)


  1. Lucky you winning all those stamps. Your desks look very busy to me. Lots going on on there.
    Happy WOYWW

    Happy crafting!
    Lots of hugs,

  11. Oh I'm loving your stamp wins! Wow. And your hot pink invites look fab, I'm starting the stamping/die cutting process for wedding invites for my Brother and his wife to be. Exciting to have designed something so special. Take care Zo xx 56

  12. Love those hot pink invitations! If that's the colour them for the wedding, would you be interested in some ready cut out bunting fabrics in a variety of pinks, whites and blacks that I made for a friend's wedding? I've got loads, they're just sitting in a box so you're very welcome to have them if you want!
    That prize was worth winning too - have fun with those beauties :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 45 xx

  13. Lucky girl! I love the splatty stamps there. The nail art stuff looks interesting too. Amazing what we crafters can make use off huh?! #41

  14. Lookit you! What wonderful stamps you won. You'll have lots of fun with those. Look at all that glitter. Who'd put that one their nails? It will look so much nicer on paper. Have fun playing! Judy # 82

  15. Ooh, what a lovely prize package to win! Have fun with those little glass bottles.

  16. Well that's definitely a fun win, congratulations! And oh wow, I've made a journal for the documented life, but haven't quite got around to working in it yet . . . so good work there. Princess Judy is right, that glitter will be much happier on paper!

    Happy WOYWW to you!

  17. Ohhh congratulations on your win, what a lovely prize. Your nail buys look great, bet you have lots of fun with those little jars.
    Hugs Lisax #53

  18. Oh you deserve a cheery win like that - what a great bunch of stamps. The ink splats speak to me. Prolly make me feel at home! I wonder if making the page will be a catharsis for the painful letter Janet, hope so - i find these are the sort of pages that do evolve from somewhere deep if you let the mood just flow. I must day, am loving the colours you're using. The wedding invites are just gorgeous - they speak happy!

  19. Hi Janet- ace package from the giveaway! I got some of those microbeads last year from our Poundland- its amazing how much stuff you can find in there if you look around. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #33

  20. WOW! You won some really great stamps there.
    Your desks are looking very busy and creative, enjoy!
    Happy WOYWW!

  21. You jammy stamper! Well done on the giveaway - they look great. Good to see the invitations have begun in earnest. I saw those nail things in Poundland too, but couldn't think of what to use them on so didn't get them. Sorry I didn't make it in today to pick up all my stuff. Will get round to it soon. See you Monday!!! Lucy x

  22. DOH! Why is our local £land so rubbish? Great find. And congrats on your win! Always lovely to get a surprise box, isn;t it?

    Happy WOYWW evening!

  23. How fun to get a free prize package!
    Lots happening on all fronts here.
    thanks for visiting and the snoop around.

  24. Hi Janet,
    That's a pile of wedding invitations -- well done on getting started. Sometimes that's the most difficult part for me. Congrats on the win of all those stamp sets!!! Yay. Isn't funny how us crafters look at things and think "I can use this like...." totally not what it's intended for.

    Thank you for your visit already! I'm slowly making it around -- and now the numbers have changed so I'm having to hunt for people!
    Happy belated WOYWW
    peace, Kay (3)

  25. A million things going on at once as usual Janet! Keep smiling x

  26. Lucky lady with all those great winnings. The silver birch and the prunus barks both flake off naturally, so the odd bit, that I give a helping hand to, does the trees no harm at all. The prunus does well with a good rub from the hands anyway, it helps to polish the bark. xx Maggie #24

  27. busy busy busy. Your desks look like they are in over drive. I need a way to store my foam pieces for transport! I am going to have to check out that life project challenge everyone is talking about...really sounds interesting. Congrats on your win and I love those bottles. Thanks for sharing your awesome project and I hope you have a great week. Vickie #99

  28. Such a lot of craftiness going on there! Enjoy every minute. x Jo
