WOYWW #244 - Stamp Expo Goodies

Happy Wednesday Everyone! Here in Atlanta we've had some extreme weather. Last week I shared my Snowmagedden experience -- a couple inches of snow fell around Atlanta and caused a massive gridlock all over the city and surrounding areas. We even made it onto the SNL weekend news. LOL. Then by Sunday the temperature was 74 degrees. I had the backdoor open most of the evening. And, now we are back to colder, rainy weather. And up North is still getting hit with LOTS of snow. I loved the snow (while not being stuck in it) but am ready for spring to get here..

Here was my desk this morning after I unloaded all my purchases from the stamp expo this weekend. (Several pics in this post too...FYI)

Valentine stuff still there waiting on me...and all the new stuff! :-) 

I bought several acetate sheets with images already printed on it from Stamp On It!. Just add Crystal Lacquer and glitter to parts of the image (backside) and you have easy card. Also several sheets of stickers. 

Some pre-cut cards for more easy cards. And the heart shaped one with the pop up insert - I swear my brain isn't working at the moment and I can't think of the proper term. LOL. Along with some glitter, b-day stamps, and a turkey. 

I love IO dies. A couple more heart ones, a basket for Easter. And love the margarita Christmas drink, and hot cocoa stamp. 

Rubbernecker has some cute stamps. I bought several last year at the scrapbook expo. The tree and 2 flower sets are from them. The unounted ones are Lost Coast designs (kinda hard to see - one is a boy and dog (winter/Christmas), and the other is a lady but with a "twist". Plus some eggs and another TH pen. 

TH heart stencil, and I forgot this company but I saw the dolphins and "had" to have. The turtle is stamped on glossy paper. So pretty. 

Here's my desk after making another b-day card for my best friend. Lots of copics were used (I'll be posting the image later on..), my ipad so I can see my pintrest album for copic color combos

And one last finished scarf. This is my first knitting project ever. :-) I'm working on a winter hat right now -- also my first one. We'll see how it turns out. 

And if you are wondering why I am going on about my desk space head over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see what the fuss is about. 


  1. The scarf is fab!! Well done you :-) I love the colours, variegated wool is such fun. Are you doing the hat in the same wool? I'm having a real love affair with yarn at the moment...I'm still sewing but it's yarn that I'm enjoying most!
    Hugs, LLJ 33 xx
