WOYWW 28th May

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog

Well I've not done any crafting this week.  My brother and sil came to stay for the holiday weekend.  Sunday we went to The Range and I got this little lot.

I hope you all have a fab WOYWW and the rest of the week goes well.


  1. Oh Sue, you're not joining the swap? ATC's are just small cards and I know you can make cards!! Next year I'll nag you for weeks before the swap ;)
    Great looking stash there - you'll have fun with that little lot.
    Thank you so much for the beautiful birthday card. It's my only handmade one this year so it's extra special x
    A big thank you hug to you and one for Polly too.
    Happy Wednesday

    happy anniversary, blessings from Angela #78

  5. Ooo, lots of nice things on your desk Sue, I looked at those very lace borders last week. I have lingered a while listening to your lovely music and enjoying looking at sweet Polly and Albe. Love the shoe card and although I only have two rolls of washi tape your kitchen roll storage idea is great. Thank you for paying me a visit today.
    Hugs Lottie

  6. Hi Sue, thanks for swinging by and for your lovely comments. I LOVE the Range and totally miss it - yes I have amazing stores here in the US, but the Range has a special place in my heart. Great haul. Cx

  7. Hi Sue and doggies, thanks for the visit and happy WOYWW anniversary.
    I fully understand that visitors can stop play but at least you got a little crafty shopping done.
    Happy crafting, Angela x #41

  19. Your desk looks so neat and tidy and like there's LOTS of fun goodies to play with!

    The pocket pages I was talking about on my post are more commonly knows as Project Life books, although that's just a brand name. The books have little divided page protectors that will fit different sizes of pictures or journaling cards. You combine them so that in the end, it's similar to a scrapbook layout. I'm not sure if I like it yet or not...but I'm willing to give it a try!

    Happy WOYWW-aversary!

  20. Laura, I have made ATCs in the past, but just don't have room to keep them. I prefer Toppers as they are made for people to use on cards.

    Glad you got and liked my card.

    houndstooth, Just got to get my mojo back now:

    Fiona, Thanks.

    Angela, Thanks for stopping by.

    Lottie, The lace borders are fab. I got some a while ago and was glad to see they still had them. You just have to get some more Washi Tape:) The Range have some in packets of three for a very good price.

    Hammers, The Range that I can get to has only recently opened.

    Angela, They usually take me when they are here. The Range isn't far from the hospital, so next time I have to go, I'll borrow dad's car and have a day out, with a visit to The Range a high priority:)

    Twiglet, Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Donna, Actually Purple is my colour, hence the butterflies:) Think Pink is a Spring colour, so using it a fair bit this time of year.

    Jan, I will if my mojo ever comes back:)

    Carol, Thanks for commenting.

    Dawn, I liked the thought of being able to have the flowers whatever colour I liked. no doubt I'll get ink all over my hands:)

    I'm sure you will work out how to add the music. Happy to help if I can.

    Jo, The Range is good for a lot of household items. I got a couple of plush boxes (fold flat) which I use to hold a load of things.

    Eliza, Thanks hun. You too.

    Robyn, Thanks for stopping by.

    Regina, Thanks.

    Carole, As I've said to a few other deskers, I just need my mojo to come back.

    Kim, Thank you.

  21. What a fantastic haul you have there! Thanks for sharing and joining in the anniversary fun! Happy 5th WOYWW Anniversary. Caro x (#43)

  22. Great looking new goodies to play with, Sue! I always find that new toys help me to find my missing Mr. Mojo when he goes into hiding. Thanks for coming to visit me earlier. I'm happy to meet you and become your newest follower! I'd love to have you pop back and follow me, too, if you like! Happy WOYWW 5th Anniversary! Hugs, Darnell

  23. Caro, Thanks for stopping by.

    Darnell, Thank you for stopping by and for becoming a Follower.

  24. Happy WOYWW Sue. I do so love Greyhounds and have a nag to Mr Hettie now and again. All our dogs we have had are rescue ones.
    Lovely to see a happy desk. Thanks for visiting.

  25. You know, if you can't craft, then new stash is not a bad plan. Looks like you'll be having fun quite soon.

    Thank you for visiting and Happy WOYWW,

  38. Your new collection of goodies looks like it will be a blast to work with. By the way, we have a brindle greyhound female that looks just like the one in the "keep calm" photo. Her parents were retired racers, but she's been our family dog since she was a puppy. She's sweet, as well as the smartest dog we've ever had. Blessings!

  39. Dropping by to greet you a happy 5th WOYWW anniversary! Thanbks for dropping by for a visit and for your encouragement. You've got some nice new stuff to play with! Those flowers look gorgeous!

  41. Looks like you had a good shopping trip, always fun to add to the pile of stash! Happy 5th WOYWW Anniversary to you, hugs from Annette #3

  42. I so wish we had a Range close to me. always such a great selection and such good prices. Thanks for sharing your haul - I come away from WOYWW every week with a shopping list a mile long :)
    Got totally ambushed yesterday so late to the party and Blogger is being difficult this morning. I hope this shows up...

    Happy 5 year WOYWW!
    Mary Anne (2)

  43. The Range is about the only place I can go and shop (not within a long distance that is) so I often end up there. Great stash.
    Happy 5th Anniversary for WOYWW - Hugs and Thanks for visiting me earlier - Neet 11 x

  44. Hi Sue thank you for popping by I am a bit late visiting because I had real life visitors yesterday! I love a bit of craft shopping! I think I have those chipboard stickers! Back to finishing off my ATCs! Happy WOYWW Anniversary Helen 47 x

  45. Hope I've found the right Sue! The number you left on my blog doesn't tie up to a Sue so I've gone with the closest one and hope it is you! Thanks for popping by my blog and for your kind comments about the heart I made at the crop. I do SO wish I'd gone with a different idea but hey-ho ... will know for next time. HAPPY WOYWW 5TH ANNIVERSARY! Love Debbie #54 xXx

  46. Hi Sue,
    I think this is my first visit to your blog, and I really did nose around it. (grin)

    Your cards are just gorgeous, yes I looked at all of them.

    I am such a dog lover that I had to follow your blog. I have a Vizsula named Dynablu and she is definitely my baby. Years ago we had a Cocker Spaniel that lived to the ripe old age of 14, when she was gone I swore I'd never have an other, then I saw a Vizsula puppy.............LOL

    Thanks for visiting my blog this week, hope you join the ATC swap next year.
    Krisha #99

  47. HI Sue, sorry I'm a day late but hope you had a happy WOYWW anyway. Love the music on your blog and love the goodies on your desk - I always go to the Range for a roll of tape or something and come out with a pile of stuff I didn't know I needed! Annie C #55

  48. Sorry for any confusion over my number. I was 59, but had noted some blogs were mentioned more than once. I think Julia must have sorted them and so I came down to 57.

    Krisha, Thank you for stopping bye. Feel free to have a nose around anytime:)

    I can't imagine living without a dog.

    Debbie Rock, As I said above, my number went down from 59 to 57. Sorry:)

    The heart was perfect.

    Helen Allen, Thanks for stopping by.

    Neet, Until The Range opened, I had to order all my crafting stuff online.

    Mary Anne, It is good to get inspiration from others.

    Annette, Thanks for stopping by.

    Nan, Thanks for commenting.

    Peggy, I am looking forward to colour the plain white flowers.

    Arnoldo, Always lovely to meet other dog owners, especially those owned by a Grey or two:)

  50. Great stash from "the range" - never seen that shop myself, perhaps it doesn't come so far south. Thanks for the visit BJ#103

  51. What a lovely lot of stash! You're so lucky having a range near you! Wish one was near me! Love the greyhounds and they all look so happy!!! Karen 84 x

  52. BJ, I see from your blog you are in Surrey. Have a look at this link for stores that might be near you. There's a Store Locator button up on the rightof their web site. You can order things online from their web site.

  53. Karen, Thank you. Greyhounds are easily pleased:)

    You can order from the The Range online.

    Janet @13

  57. Thank you for your visit this week, Sue. I am struggling to catch up with everyone after being away at the weekend at the Crop. I have never been to the Range but after looking at all you brought back I think I had better stay clear. Have a lovely week. xx Maggie #49

  58. Fairy Thoughts, I'm not sure what I will do to the Birdhouse yet.

    MaggieC, Thing is their prices are very good. there's nothing like having a good look round and then filling up your basket:)

  59. Who doesn't love new stash to play with Happy Late WOYWW 5 hugs Nikki & thanks for the visiting me :)

  60. Nikki, Sometimes I like stash so much, I'm loathed to use it:)

  61. Hi Sue,

    That's quite a haul there! I may have told you this before -- one of my friends used to be active in the greyhound rescue effort when she lived in Colorado. They are the best dogs!

    Thank you for visiting me already. I can't believe it's already Sunday and I'm just now getting around.
    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (89)

  62. Kay, I have to agree:)

    Hope you have a good week ahead.

  63. Weyhey - you certainly had fun in the Range. Great shop - I have to travel to Bangor to get to one - but it's worth the trip - especially as then I can drive home through the mountains of Snowdonia. It's not on the way, of course, but is a must!!!
    Thanks for visiting.
    Margaret #27

  64. Margaret, Now that is a good reason to drive to The Range:) I've never been to Snowdonia, but have seen programmes and it is stunning.

    Hope you have a good week.

  65. You've got some pretty things waiting for you. Hope you are having a good week. Happy 5th WOYWW anniversary and thanks for your visit! ~ Laura #96

  66. Laura, Weeks not been bad so far:)

    Hope you are also having a good week.

  67. Hi Sue! Happy 5th WOYWW! Thank you for visiting my blog. I'm sorry I'm so slow in getting around but better late than never eh?

  68. Morti, Thanks for stopping by. So many lovely blogs to get round, so not surprised you are late:) Enjoy the week ahead.

  69. Hi Sue - so sorry for the late visit for this post. All was not well - i've explained in this weeks post, so hopefully i'll get another visit from you and you won't hold my 'no show' against me!!! lol...

    A heist from The Range - great place for Xcut and Do Crafts... have they put alarms on the pencil tins at your local store like they have here - mind you, they're worth more that most other things in the whole store... anyway - hope you found bargains!

    Happy 5th WOYWW Anniversary...

    Paula x x x

  70. Psuls, There were so many Deskers last week, it took me a while to get round everyone also, so glad you made it.

    I only had a quick look round the artists section, so don't know hun. They did have a lot of goodies on offer, so I was a happy bunny.
