WOYWW - Playing with my new stamps ...

Well here is my dining table this week ... I have been playing with my new M&S Kirstie Allsopp stamps I had for Christmas, although the chicken on the orange paper on the cutting mat is a freebie from Craft Stamper. The thank you card is for my lovely MIL who bought me Pippa dolls for Christmas (see previous posts for more about these). I do love the tin the stamps came in, its very pretty and I have a million and one uses for it already! The white bag contains numerous balls of wool yet to be put away, as I'm going through a scarf-making phase... trouble is I make the scarves then give them away before I remember to take a photo. Duh! The last one I knitted was a long black scarf with red and black fringe on the ends ... It looked lovely (honest!) and was very well recieved.

Here's a close-up of what came in the tin ... stamps, ink pad, ribbons, tags and notelets ... all very useful of course!

So why am I showing you this? Well its WOYWW of course, that time of the week when hundreds of bloggers around the world share what is on their desks ... To find out more please go to Julias blog here .

  4. Lovely crafty goodies and in a tin what more would a girl need, enjoy! Hugs May x x x x

  5. Aren't tins great! I've also used the nesting boxes and various things and love them too. If it's pretty then I can store some of my stash on my bookshelves in the living room, without it looking like a craft room. Oh the perils of living in a small condo!

  10. Ah Emma, what a thoughtful gift, and as you say, will be the most used of any stamp collection. Made me laugh about the chicken on the cutting mat though, I couldnt see it, because I was looking for a big old real chicken!

  11. A lovely pressie and I like the tin very much. Wishing you a very Happy 2012. Anne x
