What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #527: Crafty Haul!

Hello my crafty friends! I have been meaning to share with you some of the crafty goodies I have purchased over the past few months. So here I am to enable all of you crafters!

For those of you that aren’t familiar with WOYWW (What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday), head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world where we get to snoop on other crafter’s desks.

The first picture shows some really cool dual-tip markers by Tombow. I saw a Youtuber talk about them and had to have them. They come in different color sets. This one is called ‘pastels’. They scream summer to me and make me happy when I look at them. They are water-based ink and dry quickly for less opportunities for smudging. But what really attracted me to these pens was the size of the tips. One side is 0.8mm and the extra-fine tip is 0.3mm. So they are great for journaling and doodling.  The sharpener is for my colored pencils and has since been confiscated by my oldest son since I took this photo so I had to order another one in pink for me.Yes this one in the second photo was an impulse buy but for good reason. I saw an amazing project on Silhouette America’s blog for flower acrylic earrings. I just had to try it. I have shrink plastic but thought I would try their brand and the one I have to see which works best. I will be sure to share my results.
I needed some new blades for my paper cutter since it went through some serious use when the boys were working on school projects at schools end. These glue tapes are so cute. Love the colors. I use them in my book journal. They are so small and portable. The fun colors makes them a joy to reach for.

When I first really got into scrapbooking there were so many craft companies and blogs that I always had inspiration for creating and of course collecting all the craft goodies. As time has taken it’s toll on the craft industry and less people blog about the goodies that remain, I would like to share my finds to inspire. I have to admit I don’t scrapbook the way I used to anymore but I am still a crafter and creator and consume my share of goodies so I will make it a habit of sharing!

Happy crafting!

  3. loving the new pens! I had just managed to find some new blades for my old paper cutter when I dropped it and broke it…. and of course they don’t fit the replacement! Hey ho…. Have a great week. Helen #1

  4. I love shrink plastic and look forward to seeing how you use it. Wishing you a very happy woyww, Angela x13x

  5. Lovely new stash, Belinda. Shrink plastic is fun! A while back, I made a whole lot of gear wheels for a project and combined the shrinking with embossing, which was interesting – they distorted and twisted all over the place while being heated and I thought they’d never work, but they miraculously flattened out and were great – some of them looked as if they’d been at the bottom of the sea for years!

    Happy WOYWW,

  6. You will love those Tombows Belinda, you can use them like watercolours too. I use them a lot in my journal pages. Shrink plastic is always on the go in this house such a versatile material have fun with it!
    I did smile about the pencil sharpener, I’ve had the same happen to me many a time. Good choice of pink, maybe that colour will stay with you a little longer hee hee!
