WOYWW #192

I took a photo of my desk yesterday when I had paint everywhere.. I know different for me right.. I had a go at a Mixed Media class yesterday.  Then got to it and tried it myself in my new art journal and had a blast. 
So here is my desk yesterday...  

With stamping and some
 bubble wrap painting
But look what I went and picked up last night! Can you see what it is I am excited about in today's photo of my desk?  Yes its my craft mat, boy will I be able to get messy with ink and paint now..  Woot Woot.. I had a voucher from a local company Kaszazz if you bought $50 worth of stuff you got $50 free so bought my mat, 2 sets of stamps and another Happy Birthday stamp, as you can never have too many Happy Birthday stamps. Some more beautiful antique brads and there is 120 sheets of cardstock.  So that will be craft supplies for ages now.
Well except for the list I wrote yesterday for Gesso, one step crackle, watercolor crayons etc etc.. Hmmm I think I need to win lotto just to keep up with my craft supplies.. lol .. 
My desk today......

A few people asked to see on here what I was doing with all those hearts on my desk for the last few weeks, so for you here they are.. 

So hop on over to have a peek around desks at Julia's.  Make sure you have a cuppa ready before you venture into the wonderful world of Julia's Stamping Ground
Thanks for visiting my blog and all the lovely comments I enjoy reading every one..
Have a great day
Sandy :)

  23. Great makes there Sandy! I love the idea of bubble wrap printing - wonder if it would work on fabric? x Jo

  24. Love your messy painting which isn't messy at all, it is lovely. Such a great background with the bubble wrap.
    Congrats on your spending. Wish I could have found somewhere with such a bargain.
    Love your heart cards - what fun they all are. Would be hard to choose a favourite.
    Thanks for the visit to my blog and happy WOYWW.

  25. Pinned your cards to share - looooooovely! hope you are well, jenx

  26. Hi there, just a quick visit to see what you are up to. Unfortunately, the EM is unwell and needs looking after so time is limited today. You can't beat the pleasure to be got from a new craft mat :) Your heart cards are beautiful. Hope your WOYWW has been happy. Elizabeth x #55

  27. That journal is such a lovely blast of Spring colour, love it. Great bargains too, spend $50, get $50, that's awesome! Beautiful cards too, very CAS.

  28. Beautiful art journal page, so many different techniques to admire. You're right: never too many stamps! I just saw a Jill Foster on the Gesso product, and very interesting it was. You have a lovely space, productive looking but still most neat. Loved your valentine cards and I was so impressed at how you got your text interspersed with your pictures. Trying to do that myself! TFS a most interesting post.

  29. Lots going on, Sandy! First this I loved seeing are the words, "had a blast!" That makes me happy!! Great job shopping it up and getting the mat and all those yummy goodies! Your cards are SO adorable!! Thanks for coming by the Playhouse! xxoo Darnell #47

  30. oh wow!!! that bubble wrap is such a great idea!!! lovely work!!!

  31. Craft goodies we all love and need hey!
    And the owl card is of course gorgeous. Not sure my owl calendar stand is so wonderful, it was put together quite quickly and maybe I could've put more detail on it but so many things to do and not enough hours!

  32. Love the card with the four different hearts on, so cute though the owls are a close runner up! love the bright sunflowers too....they're just what we. Need in the grey, cold weather were having here at the moment....
