What's on your work desk this Wednesday 163

Hi folks, I've been absent from WOYWW for the last couple of weeks because I've been away on my holidays with the family in the caravan.  It was great to catch up with other members of my family but what weather we had....I have never seen so many different versions of rain..we had fine mist (the sort you don't think you'll get wet with but yes you do), we've had "spitting", vertical rain, regular rain, torrential rain and OMG sheets of water rain! 
It has followed us around the country I am sure.
All I'm going to say as I'm glad I wasn't camping!
I shall be checking my feet for webbing later, quack, quack.
The caravan has been cleaned out and returned to it's storage for now, the washing machine is going full pelt, the ironing pile is growing and a food shopping trip is on the horizon today.
Firstly I shall share my desk today, bit of a mess again as I was busy trying to get on top of orders and end of term items before going away.  The beauty of the bad weather however, has meant I managed a couple of craft shops.  So my new purchases are what I'm sharing today.


MMmm I wonder when I'll get chance to play?
Why not pop over to Julia's place and check out what other crafters are up to.  I'm going to be very boring and crack on with my jobs then maybe I'll get chance later to have a nosey this evening at what you've been busy with, thanks for popping by and have a great Wednesday.

I hope you managed to enjoy your holiday, Erika, even if it did rain! If the Eskimos have 100 different words for snow, I think it's time the Brits had 100 different words for rain lol! I remember a caravan holiday near Oban when I was a child, and it rained in torrents the whole week. I thing my sister and I drove our parents mad...

Lovely busy desk, with lots of nice new stash. Those little easels look intriguing... would be very useful for displaying stuff at craft fairs.

Thanks for your nice comment - yes, lots going on atm. Hoping to get the rest of my ATCs out for the swap.

Happy WOYWW,

Y'all got to quit bogarting the rain and send some to Southern Arizona! We could do desperately do with some. You probably shouldn't send the fine mist rain though, it'll evaporate too quick. We can do the OMG sheets of rain, send those!

Ooh, look at those mini easels and that wreath die. I want to come play with you! Have fun playing with it!

You have got a right old mix there from the pretty girly stamps and die right through to the Industrial! Is that metal grid looking pattern for embossing? (I am a non paper crafter you see!!)

Have fun with all your lovely new stash!

Oh now what are you going to do with the paper bags? and I love the die you have got, there is a stamp in the pile too but cant see that very well. Ah and the art trestle, great for displaying finished art, what a great shopping trip you have had.

Thanks for visiting me, love your drummer card too
