WOYWW

Good morning everyone, it has definitely started out a good day for me! Unlike last week breaking everything it's all happy stuff for me today.

First off I've won last week's challenge at High Hopes with my sea life bookmark, and they put a picture of the winning entry on the High Hopes blog which I was very excited to discover this morning.

On to WOYWW, this is my stamping workdesk (aka one third of my kitchen work surfaces) this morning with a new addition.
I've had the drawers under the computer desk for months if not years waiting to be sanded back a bit and decorated. Then when I was looking for somewhere to keep my stamp collections I remembered them. I think they may need a more permanent home than on the edge of the worktop, maybe?

Here's a close-up with strategically placed elements!
The Magnolia drawer open to reveal my new stamp Tilda with lollipop. I have a special mission for her which I am itching to get started on. Then on the top is the another new stamp for my collection - Helz Cuppleditch's Pepper & Friends 'In the garden'. I've just stamped it hoping to get some spring card challenges completed today.

As if that wasn't all just happy with bunnies on top a little pack of goodies arrived from CardMaking and Papercraft magazine as a reward for having my card published in their gallery. It's a lovely set of Cute Companion stamps which you can build into all manner of cake designs.
I think I might have a mission for these too!

I've managed to get the family pictures updated in the sidebar. I had to take a shot of the Dinky Diva especially for the job. We were on our way home from a Easter craft morning and she stopped for a mini photo shoot. Make that microscopic photo shoot, I was allowed to take all of 2 photos! This is the the one that I didn't use for her sidebar pic.
Note how she is stood in a drain with her eyes shut, photo gold!

Nice drawers missus - but they won't be big enough in erm, I'd guess 5 months! You've gone all cute this morning - an avenue I'm currently working down too!

I've got about 5 sets of those draws dotted about the house... i think i feel some projects coming on to make them a bit more interesting than their current state...

I like that your stamps are living on the edge; it's a good reminder to all of us to live on the edge artistically! Thanks for sharing.
