WOYWW #177

Hello everyone,

Yip it's another Wednesday morning and time to show my desk today, this weekend has been a crafty one I have been on and off crafting since Saturday, so I have lots to show and tell...
In between crafting I've been reading my Ken Follett novel and catching up on my fave British shows like Miranda, Torchwood, and Hustle so so love Miranda Hart she's so funny...
Got some goodies last week and on Monday to show and tell,

Some Tim and Heidi Swapp goodies

TH dies, embossing folders and Prima embellishments

Heidi Swapp stuff, 7 gypsies stamps and the TH die
so I have been playing with my new dies, colour shine, tumble dyes and candle wax to create these ornaments, my daughter  made her first one last night so of course wants to go searching thru all my supplies.
Back to my work desk this is what I have been working on in the last day my rosette xmas table decoration.




What else did I make

:  a rat trap grunge memo holder for my son Max's room
:  decorated my December Daily cover

 :  played with the clock dies and created this xmas ornament for my tree
 :  made 6 Christmas ornaments using the TH ornament die






:  played with the clock dies and created this xmas ornament for my tree
:  and lastly made a little table decoration for my xmas table....
:  played with my scoreboard and made gift boxes and treat holders


Hubby has been asking me what I want for xmas I really want this massive Samsung tv I love my electronic toys and being a gamer this tv will just make the experience sweeter, but I will wait for sales in Jan for that...
 At first I wanted the Tim Holtz Vagabond but then I saw a YouTube video on the Big shot pro and I think I might  get this one instead, so has anyone got the big shot pro?
And hello some of Tim's new xmas dies have hit our Aussie shores so I so need to buy a few this week, I love the massive star, tattered poinsettia and the large snowflake to name just a few....
Enough of my ramblings if you want to participate and join in the weekly adventure of blog hopping then head on over to Julia's blog and play along... http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com.au/
Have a fantastic week everyone and thanks for stopping by.....

Hi Maria, Not sure if you are up early or very late, can't work out the time difference. Anyway, thanks for your visit this morning. I was very lucky not to lose any stash, just a box for some small laminator pouches, but the air was blue here. You have been so busy with all those wonderful decorations, where do you find the time? Have a really good week. xx Maggie (no idea of number yet)

Wow, you have been busy, Maria! Lovely projects, especially the clock ones. Great work.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog - you're nice and early! I am glad you like my art journal page. I've finished it now, and once the photos are uploaded, I'll be doing a post about it, so do hop back and have a peek! I drew the tiger freehand while looking at an internet photo of a tiger! I blocked in the main colours and then added the stripes and finer features, finishing with the eyes.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #2 (thought I was #1 but got knocked off my perch lol!!)

Oh boy but have you been busy! Loving the TH ornaments. Yours will be a truly amazing tree. Happy WOYWW, hugs Buttons #6

I'd have to win the lottery before I truly get into TH stuff, there's just so much that would be wonderful to have I'd be bankrupt in a week!! I can't believe (still) how many things you manage to make in just the space of a week! I don't know when you get time to sleep! Hope the bread turned out ok? Is the Australian cup size different from the American do you know? Someone told me the Australian one was just 4oz, whereas the American on is 8oz.

Your ornaments and pages are so beautiful--I love this style. As a creative crafter, I think you would really enjoy the gelatos! They are soft and creamy and the colors are so rich. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #13

Krisha said...

Your ornaments are so rich looking. I have to wait for a really good sale or coupon to get TH items. I have gotten a few dies on E-bay. Now I want the snowflake!

Gorgeous stuff you have made! love them all. I have a BS Pro- I am really pleased with it, it cuts & embosses pretty much anything you throw at it. I got it earlier this year, I got fed up with dies coming out getting bigger/thicker, and I couldn't use them. I figured that no-one is going to come out with anything the Pro can't handle, I wanted it to be a once & forever upgrade. Usually, the Pro comes with a few plates, but you can get the Starter kit, which contains everything else you will need. Its easy to turn the handle on to. The only potential downside is that its a BEAST! 24" wide( including the handle), 34" long, and very heavy. So you need somewhere you can set it up and leave it, its way too heavy to move around. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #107

Paula Gale said...

Wow Maria

You've been really busy making some FAB-U-LOUS stuff- love your style.

I absoloutely love your clocks you've made - I actually thought the first two were real. OMG - couldn't believe they weren't.

Good luck on getting what you want from Mr Claus!

Oh, and I love Miranda too - her show is just such a scream. Can't wait for the next series.

Thanks for visiting me already.

What amazing things you've been creating - the rosette table piece is sensational, and I absolutely love the first of the clocks! I read a lot about Vagabonds breaking down on people... I've only got a hand cranked Big Shot, but I love it!!
