Woyww + Candy going on too

I'm late lol WOYWW is posted up and I'm still writing this post ARG MUST TYPE QUICKER !!!

Seeing we are in the middle of renovations and everything I went to home depo and saw these shoe bins for 97 cents now how can you argue about the price Well I thought I'd try them out and put my ribbons in them so I'm just trying to make them all fit and be easy and organized to get them all out 
Oh yah each one has been re-rolled and tucked in a little baggie with matching colours but so it doesn't take up a lot of space. 
I have some markers that are dying on me and they have a brush end so what I did was put a little washi tape on them and now I dip them into re-inkers that match up with their colour palette seeing I only own 5 re-inkers I think I'll do fine with 3 markers :) 

So just leave a little comment here and your in for the candy 
if you want to know exactly what there is to win pop into my other WOYWW

A Sparkly Fairy

Looking for my Candy GO HERE  Winners Picked March 14th
Here is my newest stamp in all her glory I love the way her hair coloured turned out
- Brenda is having some fantastic candy and wants to know what your fave stuff is well for me this is a great example embossing powder and my dies they go on an equal basis if my heat gun could only be quiet lol they would be par but my dies usually win out between the two of them
You can see her goodies in my sidebar :)
Here is One of Some Odd Girl Stamp Futter by Fairy I've used 3 different types of embossing powders I've used some clears with Pearl effects one has a green reflection and the other a silver and her Dress has a MATTE embossing powder. I've always wanted an embossing powder that was clear and had a matte quality and "WOW"has it. So when light doesn't hit her wings you and skirt edges you can see all the details I've coloured under all that clear embossing.
so when a little light hits this fairy she Sparkles !!

WOYWW + Candy

Here is one of the main reasons I have a tidy desk because if I don't have a space to the left, where my big kick is. This happens when I'm in the middle of something, Yep a big Furry Hunk telling me I have to pet him now or I hear it and Honestly he doesn't shut up you'd think he's a Siamese cat meow meow meow !! lol  He's a good boy I snap my fingers and he runs away no punishment needed he just knows he's up to no good :)
He looks better when a FLASH isn't going off lol
Ok so if your going to block my view Yep I'm going to tie ribbons around in legs in hope that he will jump off the table to take them off and that did not happen lol continued to sit there till he was happy with how much I petted him .. SPOILED BOY !!!
So here's my space I was super lucky to win a WOW Challenge and I got to pick 
6 of their embossing powders in an adorable carrying case which is a bonus  LOVE thier embossing powders. They have one that GLOWS IN THE DARK!!!  
So now here are the RAKS there are 2 of them and they aren't that big 
and they are some used stamps and some extra embellishments
I will send them anywhere in the world too !!!
Each Giveaway has 25 - 6 by 6 assorted papers. Little tag set some Brads and other mixed embellishments
Each one has 1 Retired Krafting Kimmie Stamp in a little holder with all their add ons that 
come with them When I got them 
A set of border/Florish clear stamps or flowery clear stamps I'm no using anymore.

So which one would you like Flowers or Florishes ? 

These aren't crazy big prizes but I wanted to say thanks and hopefully someone would love to use
them seeing I haven't in a long time.  I hate to see them just linger around 
You can also send this to someone else as a surprize in the mail

Love You

This is most likely the most Bling I've ever used on any creation that hasn't been tossed
I'm using Limited Runs New "Cuppa Love". Now I'm not sure if I'm telling the coffee Love you or the person getting this lol but it's full of heart and love :)
I used faded in and then recolored every line to create a more hand drawn image look
plus pottery always has those swirls in the cups. The Smoky heart is embossed but doesn't show very well here

Tip on Colouring your brads I used a marker on them then dipped them in clear embossing powder to
hold the colour in place. I did emboss them 3 times so they have a thicker coat that catches the underside too. This stops the embossing from chipping off if you hit it. They where gold when I started.

It's not perfectly tidy how I like it but this stamp book takes up a lot space
Well Today I did get to playing with a few things and moved a few things around to be able to reach them better. I also have some new stamps from Whimsy "2 Cute Ink Line" They are just so cute too !! I also dismounted some of my wooden blocks that where tucked a way and a hassle to get. Just nuked them for 10-15 secs in the microwave and they came off super easy and with almost all the foam perfectly. Save on space and they fit in my book. 
Just organizing and going through my stamps to pick out ones to make little stamp card holders the fronts are all stamped and coloured up to inspire me to use them more. So far I'm just making holders lol but having fun doing so. 
So pop around Julia's and check out everyone's desks
thanks for peeking about

Wanting Spring

I find that when I don't use a stamp much I like to create a folder for them and store them in their own little coloured spot that way I can look through them and be inspired to use them more often this way. 
Plus if I loan them to my sister she loves to see what they look like coloured up and loves to use them for a reference to help her shade. I've been creating a whole bunch of these up to make me use play with them more often :) I've used the whole set to create this holder to.

Wings of Hope

I've been going through my stamps and using the ones that haven't been used in a long time and have started making little folders for them to hide them inside to remind me how how beautiful they are and to use them more often.

This is my space on Thursday of last week We put up the ceiling drywall where my space is stashed and after I just kind of got everything where I wanted it it's all piled high and now I'll have to set it up all over again lol ... at least on the plus side is I'll re-organize it again and now I have 2 scrap pieces of wood cut at 10 inches each so now the back shelf can stand on its own so it will be able to stand on it's own on top of my desk which is perfect. The Brown Box is full of paints I have to go thru and see if any has dried out which I'm pretty sure some has seeing some where really low It's all just been piled on top of until I can put it all right back and tidy it all up again. Perhaps I  will paint that wood 1st with some scrap paints. 
My Space on Friday
Moved yet again seeing drywall needed to go exactly where I moved my pile the 1st time but what can you do in renovations :P It will have to be that way for a little bit I'm gonna stash some of the not so used stuff in boxes to make easier to transport.  I then went to the task of sorting my Xmas ribbon which is becoming a very big box of it I might say. While all this sorting was going on I dumped a FULL coffee straight into my tissue wrapping paper bag ... it's all been recycled on the bonus the side the carpet only got a little of the coffee on it lol.
So Here is my desk now Nothing going on but it's all been super organized and I've managed to hide some stuff that I'm not really using at the moment in some boxes to make it even easier to move around. But will be a pain to look for when I want it lol.
I did manage to paint the shelf white but hated the edge so grabbed my trusty staple gun and added on some lovely green trim I've had for way to long and I like how it turned out. Should colour those staples with a marker so you can't see them .
I can't add any holes into the drywall seeing this isn't where my desk truly belongs it's just a temp spot to keep me busy and out of his way lol
But the house is coming along Oh I did do one thing to my WOYWW block from when WOYWW started up .. Never stained it or coloured it but I did glue a magnet to the bottom so it sticks to my lamp it's a great place for putting something in to let it dry so I don't manage to stick my hand in it or the cat walks on it. 
thanks for looking and I'll be around
