WOYWW-The Messy Desk Version

For all of those of you who partake in Julia's What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday and prefer messy desks, I did this just for you:
Okay, not really. My desk has been a dumping ground because I've been too busy doing other things.  From left to right I have some correspondence to answer, some goodies from Taylored Expressions, a streampunk owl stamp, a large pile of Simon Says Stamps goodies (that I won from a blog hop!!!!), magnetic tins of embellishments, a huge pile of wood mounted stamps, and a plastic container of candies (the crafting thing, not actual candy).
Even the floor behind my desk is a disaster area I'm getting ready to be a seller at a crafting yard sale.  Goodbye old and no longer used goodies!  Hello new goodies!
Here's my haul from last weekend's Stamp and Scrap Fest convention, minus a couple of things. I also got a haul from my hubby since it was our anniversary, so lots of new goodies in my life all unplayed with as of yet.
Here's a card I made at a make and take at the convention using the new 3D paper tole pages that punch out now so no more fussy cutting. I  actually don't mind fussy cutting but my eyes are starting to fail me.
Charles didn't want to be left out.

The Fine Print: I got nothing for you down here today.  I know that breaks your heart, but remember, kid, they can't all be winners.

Lovely goodies there. It looks like Charlie is telling you to hurry and open the parcels! Thanks for the visit earlier.

Well, Judy, what a desk full of excitement this week. Puss obviously vetting the selling/sorting process - making sure you don't get rid of the wrong things. He has amazing coloured eyes.
Thanks for visiting - yes, I'm on my way with dress number one - the one which has to travel safely to Romania! I nearly threw myself the length of the diner this morning trying to sort out the next bit... but I survived!
Take care.

Darnell J Knauss said...

What a fun and thorough post, PJ!! Love that you are having a crafty sale and can purge so all those new goodies can breath!! Hugs, Darnell

Ann B said...

Hi Judy, not visited your desk for a while but then I haven't been around much myself. I always feel I'm visiting a relative with you, because a) you use the same blog background as me, and b) you are just as craftily messy as me, maybe we are long lost sisters.
Congrats on the candy win and good luck with your sale.

I enjoy all your posts, winners or not ;-) It's hard to keep up the banter for each post...I don't always hit the mark each time but that's ok too!
I want to see a close up of your steampunk owl, that sounds a fab combination to me! I also like the skull stamps too...they're fun"!
Hugs, LLJ 39 xx

Shaz Brooks said...

I've been to a couple of those crafty yard sales. So. Much. Fun. Hope you do well and get plenty of new goodies!

I love the little boy & cat stamp on the card in the post below. Adorable.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and for the nice comments about my kaleidoscope cane.

Happy Woyww,

Sandy #1

Julia Dunnit said...

The fine print made me howl, great life lesson! happy anniversary and what are the little colour band tins for then huh????

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Judy and ...ooow new goodies that's super and a day at the convention, that's dangerous, love the 'oldies' stamp not sure about the skull, cool tole card and bet you can't wait to get crafting. Cheers RobynO#38

jimlynn said...

Well, Charlie's a cutie! Your card is a beauty! Your haul is sensational......and your desk isn't that bad actually! Great post!

Judys Fabrications said...

Oh that crafty yard sale sounds great!Wish I could be there to snap up those goodies.Don't you love how cats just have to check things out!
Thanks for visiting.

Daniella said...

"They all can't be winners", a quote from bad santa maybe?
Wonderful goodies you have! I saw a pile of ink pads on your desk. I was thinking when you come over you can bring them to use with my new stamps!
How far is AZ from NJ? I'm free between 3 and 5. That's enough time, right????

VonnyK said...

You got some great goodies, love the fishing stamp and the old lady. Great idea for the tole to be push out, I go cross eyed trying to cut things.
Have a great week.

Krisha said...

Thought I had the wrong desk at first....LOL This must have been the week to just bring it in and dump it.

WOW, what wonderful new toys you have to play with.

Thanks for the visit and the comment

MaryH said...

Love the card, and paper tole is new to me. Just saw a mention of that at another blog. Recognized some Stamp Dr. items (that flip die!) and guess this vendor was at your convention. Looks like you had fun. Liked your messy desk too, and I appreciated you making that effort just so I'd feel at home! TFS & Hugs

MommaRock said...

Oh my... a rolltop, sure brings back memories! Love your desk!!! Thanks for sharing!

Eliza said...

Oh lucky you winning stash and getting more as well. Love the puddy's sticking their noses in where they want to be, so typical. You really do have some fun goodies I love the old lady with the walker by Impression Obsession I have used it many times over. It was my wedding anniversary yesterday too.
Thanks for visiting.

Hugs Eliza & Yoda 14

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

You made out like a BANDIT this week and also for your anniversary. Looks like you have more dies than you know what to do with, too.

Did you steal Bleubeard? OK, I know it's Dio, but I still think he looks like Bleubeard's twin.

Good luck selling that slightly used stash. I hope there's a good turnout.

Because it's still Wednesday in my world, have a happy WOYWW from #2.

Eve said...

Fabulous card with lovely fresh colours.

Isn't it so nice to get new goodies - should be prescribed by all doctors!!

My work desk is a dinning room table so all has to be packed away :(

Irish Cherokee said...

You make me feel good. No I'm not going to post pictures. I can't back up far enough to get it all in. Cherokee says, "We have fire sale." But we didn't have a fire. He just smiled. OH no you don't. LOL

chrissy xx said...

Bit like me lol...Not much room to work! Trouble is if you tidy up? things tend to go missing.. Good job you have Charles to help you out.

Shoshi said...

A beautiful card, Judy, and well done, having such a good clear out to make room for nice new stuff! Your kitty pics are gorgeous too. I didn't make it onto WOYWW this week but will try and visit a few people just to say "Hi!"


Neet said...

Miaow to Charles!
Love your new stash - especially the skulls. Fabulous!
Congrats on your anniversary too - see you have him trained well if he buys you craft goodies.
Hugs & Thanks for visiting me - Neet 26 xx

Leslie Hanna said...

(1) Purging is good for the soul.
(2) Lock the doors, because I'm coming to steal Charlie!!!!

MaggieC said...

Your helper is so lovely, such an expressive look on his face. I started off very well at the NEC, sticking very close to my list. then I lost my list, and saw all the beautiful new stencils at the Clarity stand. they were calling to me and it would have be rude to refuse all the great show offers, wouldn't it? You can see my purchases next Wednesday on WOYWW. I had a great time meeting up with good internet friends and getting to know them personally. I did make time to play a little this afternoon, but the rest of the week is taken up now with a good clear out in readiness for the family to descend for a real onslaught on the wreck that is my garage and shed. xx Maggie

Cherie said...

Your desk looks great covered in all of that crafty stuff. I'm slowly filling a bag for the next craft yard sale at my LSS in June. Can't wait to see some of your new stuff on some cards!
