Welcome to What's On Your Workspace Wednesday #74

When it rains, it pours. But not always in a bad way. In this case, my recent craft supply orders have all converged on me at once. Not a bad problem, right?

I ordered a self-inking Anna Griffin stamp set from the Home Shopping Network (HSN) last week and it came today. (Can't wait to play with it because---frugally speaking, ahem--- I'm hoping it will accommodate any small cling stamps I have, I'll keep you posted). You'll find that item in the lower right corner of the shot in bubble wrap under the paper insert.

Then, I had ordered a few things from my good friend and Stampin Up demonstrator and when I met her for lunch today, she brought my order, yay! It was some 1/2" lace trim, a lattice die, some pastel buttons and a cute little date keeper to decorate. You"ll find them in the bottom left corner. The stamp set in the bottom center is Laundry Notes by Stampin Up.

THEN, a bundle pack of Unity Stamps that I ordered a couple of weeks ago appeared in my mailbox yesterday. So, although it's more fun to get these things spaced a little apart, I'm fine with it....hee hee.

In the top center of the desk you'll see some plastic dividers that I picked up in the hopes that, like the Holy Grail, I've finally found a treasure I've been seeking, that is, the perfect surface to stick my cling stamps on. I can't find the stencil sheets that I thought might work, I've tried glossy sheets and even cardstock with a sheen on it, to no avail. After I place the set on these surfaces and slip them into a large clear plastic baggie and try to store them standing up in a magazine holder, they invariably unstick and fall in a heap to the bottom of the bag. Someone is going to tell me that empty CD holders are good but I want the sets to be together so they're not big enough. By next week, I'll be able to report if these dividers worked.

I've been working on cards for challenges (see the top blinkie in the sidebar) so there are lots to check out if you scroll down the week's worth of posts below. You cat lovers may like the one I did a few days ago with a stamp designed by my friend, Lydia. I inserted a link in that post if you decide you must have that cat stamp. It is adorable!

Finally, thanks to everyone who expressed concern last week for my safety where my sagging shelves are concerned. Just to let you know, they are a very sturdy form of particle board that were somewhat bowed when I inherited them. They're not going anywhere, but I haven't helped them in the least!

Enjoy your WOYWW!

I saw the lingerie stamp from the previous post and really liked it. I was curious about the die. My friend bought a MS punch that was supposed to do the same thing, but she never got it to work. I'll have to tell her about the die. I am really interested in the Anna Griffin stamp set. I hope you'll "play" with it next Wednesday. Happy WOYWW from #1.

Ooooh, lots of lovely stash! You will have lots of fun with all that! I will be interested to hear how the inserts work out. I want to put all my unmounted stamps in a huge binder and I have some pages that are plastic (or something, I forget) on order that are supposed to work for this....
Thanks for the peek!
