Whats on Your Workspace Wednesday 127


I hope all the other WOYWWers courtesy of Julia at Stamping Ground have more to show you this week than I have as my desk is a bit bare this week.


This, however, was a bargain buy, a give-away in last week's copy of Woman's Weekly magazine - and I didn't have to spend a penny because my Mother-in-law buys the mag and passed it on to me.
A big thanks to Lynne Wilkie who gave us the heads up at our Vicky Stampers meeting on Saturday - think women's weekly will be wondering why the peak in sales last week.

I did get a little something through the post though: -


My subs gift from Craft Stamper together with the open copy of the vintage Woman's Weekly.
I have a direct debit but cancel it each year and re-start it the following day just to get my subscription offer.  Especially worth it this month as the offer is some metal sheet backed with card and a PaperArtsy stamp sheet - love that row of bottles at the bottom of the sheet.

Hope to get a bit more crafting done this week - so tired yesterday, and so cold on Monday - so my desk should have bit more to show you next week.  In the meantime I'm going over to Julia's for a desk hop and a bit of inspiration.

What a great magazine the celebration copy of Woman's Weekly is... still copies in the shops if people hurry. Great to see you Saturday...
Love joZarty x

Oh, not a buyer of that mag usually, although I have a memory of having something in there once, (I might have dreamt it!) will look out for it, asit looks quite a must have for crafters! Have a great week, Happy WOYWW ((Lyn))) #66

Thank you Ann, because of you I cancelled my current subscription of craftstamper and have renewed and will hopefully get some more stamps. Fingers crossed. But drat it, can't get that copy of Womens weekly anywhere, my Mum used to get it but has stopped buying it now and the one in the newsagents has Brucie on the front and I don't want him featuring on any of my cards LOL.

What a great idea about the magazine subscription.

Neet said...

Must talk to you about that stopping and starting Ann. Am hoping Alison got my copy of WW put away because until today I hadn't been out and guess there will not be any around now.
How nice to share the heads up with everyone (I forgot all about it). Hugs, Neet x

I know EXACTLY what you mean about not having enough room for other crafts in your life - this is why I am resisting scrapbooking and bead jewellery. I only have so much time...!!

That magazine is great isn't it. I bought one and will have to get another as I cannot bear to cut it up.

Aw! Women's Weekly - that brings back happy memories. Do they still have the Robin stories in there?
I am missing my Craft Stamper at the mo but hopefully soon I can restart it again.
Thanks for popping over. The M&Ms are some my friend brought back from USA - peanut butter ones so are rationed!! Hence the surprise at finding them unattended!

Electra said...

Oo, I Love the vintage pictures you have! Thanks for stopping by my blog today, I hope to post some closeup pictures of my UTEE pieces for next week's WOYWWED!

Somehow I knew you would understand about doing more than 1 thing at a time. You always seem to have something exciting going.
Stop and start is an excellent ploy, as they always give the prizes to the new people.

Have a great WOYWW... and the rest of the wek too!

I managed to get a copy of the WW mag - it's great, isn't it? And love the stamps you got with CS sub (Hazel WOYWW #89) x

That must be a British magazine because I've never heard of it. Like you, I like those bottles.

Since you made the comment, if you would like to see a couple of the dresses I altered from the caulk, please visit my blog post from Thursday:
