WOYWW #143

Well, Julia, today I thought I would show you what's in my cupboard rather than the clear space on my desk.
I have been busy making cards etc but as I always  try to clear away after one ready for the next, and as I have completed cards for the next few weeks, my space is tidy. So, here is my cupboard - plus the reason for one episode of tears yesterday:
Do you see the suitcase - alias - Vagabond?????
I went to see Hels Sheridan demo-ing at my local craft store yesterday, and my DH (somewhat embarrassingly) plonked this on my knee! Now I very rarely wear any makeup apart from a bit of mascara and lippy, but yesterday decided to go the whole hog and slap a bit of face paint on. Needless to say, I probably ended up with white lines down my cheeks. What a sight.
So, you can guess what I will be doing today, making use of all those dies on the shelf above. I must point out here that I generally ask for craft vouchers for my birthday and Xmas, so my wonderful Sizzix collection is growing thanks to my lovely family.
I wonder whether Tim will use a die cut on his tag for March or the catch-up one for January. I do hope so, hehe.
And - A VERY HAPPY LEAP YEAR TO YOU ALL

What an awesome collection of TH dies you have. AND the Vagabond, fantastic!

I hope he uses something I have for the March & January tags, too. Of course, it's always fun to improvise anyhow.

Happy Woyww,

How lucky are you to have two wonderful things, a Vagabond and a generous and loving husband. I'm sticking with my Cuttlebug for the time being but finding it hard to resist temptation.

What an excellent husband you have (read that as: well-trained)! That is one great stash of dies you have there. I like them in the cupboard like that. So much nicer than the old turn-around Sizzix thing I have a bunch of dies in. Have fun die cutting!

Hi there, I'm a bit behind but wanted to pop my head round the door and say hello. Hoping you have a good and creative rest of the week. I love my Vagabond but I am trying hard not to look at your die collection as I would begin to drool! Enjoy using your machine.

Oh you will LOVE your VB. Mine no longer gets packed away but has a permanent spot on my desk where I use it daily. Lucky you to have been inspired by Hels and thanks for taking the only photo of her on the day.

I don't own a die cutting machine, but if I did, I would want one like yours with all those luscious dies. I would have been here earlier, but I got caught in a tornado early Wed morning. Here's to a belated WOYWW from #3.

Sarah said...

That's just wonderful - enjoy die cutting heaven...Thanks for sharing your space Sarah at 1 - having a peek on Friday!

Hi there, this is my first week visiting WOYWW so thank you for letting me peek into your cupboard. I'm trying to visit everyone before next Wednesday.
Phewph...there's a lot of talent out there.

I've only just found my art mojo after 12 years (no idea where it went but thankfully it's found me again)

Must dash to get through to everyone :D
