WOYWW #220

Well the craft store is getting closer to closing now they are selling off there paper storage racks.  I snapped up 2 for my paper just have to stack and organise all my paper,  it will be so much easier to see what I have with these.  50% off everything now so I grabbed some more stencils will never see them for this price anywhere else such bargains.  So short post this week and I am off to organise paper..  Will leave you with a card I made as I did a bit of sewing and made a patchwork card was fun will be doing this again. 

Julia from  WOYWW gets us all together every Wednesday to have a look at desks from all over the world.. Grab a cuppa, I have mine here, and take a browse.. Thanks for taking the time to comment and enjoy the blog hopping around all the desks.

Have a great day
Sandy :)


  1. Morning Sandy. It is sad when a craft store closes but it is fab to get a real bargain ;-) I got my paper storage in the same way. I love your patchwork card your stitching is perfect - no mean feat on the circle I am sure! Happy WOYWW from Helen 71 x

  2. Love that card, what a great idea to do it like patchwork.
    I agree with Helen, it is very sad when a store closes but how good fork the shopper to grab such bargains. I am so envious of your paper storage, just think how organised you are going to be.
    Have fun! Hugs, Neet 32 xx

  4. Useful little racks and your card is lovely - especially the stitching. x Jo

  5. A lovely card and great bargains. Happy WOYWW and thanks for your visit :-) Suzanne

  6. Glad to see you've got some bargains, Sandy, although it's always sad to hear of craft shops closing down. We lost our local one some time ago. Probably a good thing for my bank balance, but then I do most of my shopping online these days, and have the odd blow-out at our twice-yearly craft shows in Exeter!

    Thank you for your lovely comment - I am thrilled with my new room, and it's going to be such a joy to work in a room that actually "works" for me, unlike my old one which grew out of an office in an ad-hoc sort of way before I really knew what I wanted. I got my stickles carousel from

    Happy WOYWW,

  9. It's always sad to see a store close, but glad you got some great deals. That card is precious!

  10. Awww, it's such a bummer when a craft store closes, but there are the good deals to ease the pain. :-)

    Happy Woyww,

  11. Hello lovely lady now where is this store I am down your way on fridsy as I have to work at S Stadium and thought I might be able to throw in a few purchases at the same time. LOL I think I might have to get some of those stencils.

  13. Shame about the shop closing but good to grab some bargains!! Have a great week. Helen 8

  14. such a pretty patchwork card! How sad that the craft store is closing. I think always say that! I do hope another one opens or you get to find a good source of supplies. You've certainly gained some bargains out of all this though! Happy WOYWW. Julie Ann xx #35

  15. Oh wow super cute card.. I want to get a mini sewing mechine to do things like that. And great deal on the wrack but to bad the store has to close. Im still working getting to everyone's desk.. so thank you for sharing and have a bright day. Roberta 26

  16. I love your card! and That's awesome that you are getting some good deals on the paper racks and stencils!

  17. Yes I love your card too! I've just found in my mess a tiny sewing machine, not sure if it could cope with card though! (Give it a try later!) and how lovely or not.... to have a crafty shop selling off stuff cheaper! or not...because once its gone, then where do you go?? Three closed near ( Ish) me in the last few years, so most of my stuff comes via post now, if there's no postage to pay its cheaper than going miles and miles just for glue and stickers! It costs me just over £6 in petrol to get to my nearest craft shop now... Thank you for my snoop!!
    Happy WOYWW!

  18. Craft shop bargains, how fab - not one around here to have any sort of sale, we only have 'The Range' thats it.
    Love your card, great patchwork.

  19. Love those trays for your papers, love the view you have from your craft room, love your work hun, Avril #56

  20. Well aren't you the lucky shopper. Stencils and paper holders. What great buys. I know you're going to love organizing your paper. Happy slightly late WOYWW from #10.

  21. I hate when some of my favorite craft stores or gift shops close, but you sure can get a deal on some of their racks that are perfect for a craft room. I have about 3 racks and 4 bins that were such finds for me. Very useful in my stamp room!

  22. Happy Belated WOYWW, Sandy! You will have the highest "green with envy" rating at this week's hop! Who wouldn't love to have those fabulous racks for paper?! I got some when I opened the Playhouse, but they are plastic, not that sturdy, and with sharp edges, so I'm green for sure!

    Thanks for the visit to me and your kind get well wishes! I'm taking it easy and only making cards and blog visits. Mister is waiting on me hand and foot. Oh, wait, he does that everyday! I'm a lucky, lucky girl! Enjoy the rest of your week - can't wait to see the "after" picture of all your pretty papers all sorted!! Darnell #16
