WOYWW 199 - Bless This Mess

 Happy-I-Can't-Believe-My-Desk-Is-Such-a-Mess Day! AKA What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday.

Visit the coolest, most fun blog party on the planet right here.

My box of free loot!
Would you believe, though, that this is a good mess? You see, lately, the universe and the planets have aligned in just the right wink of an eye so that I've won a few goodies here and there! The latest box of winnings came from So, I had unpacked the box, gone to Michaels with hubby, and returned with more loot that I bought 50% off and with coupons. I didn't spend much at all and the fun just piled up on me worktable!

Minnie has claimed the box.
I got to go on their website and spend $25--got some cute little things!

I had to have these tiny clothespins!
More winnings.

To my pure delight, Michaels had bins and bins of stuff for 50 cents! I went a little wild.

And I got some 5.99 yarn for 1.99--loading up the stash!
Part of my winnings--but made me wonder if this is why some things on this website are so inexpensive! I don't care--it's still metallic thread no matter how you spell it!

 This is the view outside the windows of my crafty corner. Can you believe it? Happy spring! But my new craft stash has certainly warmed my soul. I've got all the Easter baskets done too. Now I'm waiting for the big spring warmup!

Happy WOYWW everyone!

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch, and stay warm.


  1. What a brilliant mess! It'll be like Christmas working your way through it. And the weather outside is fitting...

  2. Wow... what lovely new goodies - so fun to have so much stuff and have spent so little to get it!! I've missed a few, but happy to be back (and with my mother in tow this time - although I see she's ahead of me here!)... Happy WOYWW!

  5. Well, that little lots going to keep you busy for a while! How fabe to get such a lot of stash for very little cash, the best sort :) and it's all lovely bright summery colours...we've forgotten what they're like in the UK at the moment. It has been horrendous in some places. Although, there is a strange yellow thing in the sky today...don't know what that is? Do you?? Lol :). The cats are basking in the weak sunlight that's coming in through the windows and Ron is purrs as I type this. I'm just glad that the woodburner is up and running..we've enjoyed having the fire this week...toasty!!

  14. Nice haul! I love Michael's 50cent bins, I go wild too. Happy WOYWW Cx #135

  15. Girl now I know your one of us. You managed to make a mess. Your desk is always so nice in tidy. Nice haul. I recently purchased some of those tiny clothes pins and they are hot right now, lucky us.

    I hope to see more of your beautiful work next week. It's so pretty.

    Have a blessed day!

  16. I need to get a few things sorted as well...Been a bit lucky with candy as well and have it all piled up not wanting to put it away till I took photos etc.
    No more excuses so must get on with finding homes for my new treasures.

    Yours looks like fun things and your seeds are fabulous! Used to always have an organic garden...either at home or an allotment. Now, this garden doesn't have a sunny sport that would work...every square inch is filled with perennials!

  17. Congrats on your winnings - and then discounted stash - oh happy day! Have a happy week playing with your new toys! MMx #141

  18. Wow love your goodies and ALL of your mess! I gotta check out glass beads are those sequins? Hmm off to google I go hehe happy woyww!

    Thanks so much for for sharing ~ happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz.x #14

  20. I loved your post this morning! Exactly how I'm feeling these last few days. I did do a run through clean up of my space before I took my photo because I had an internet guy coming to work and he would need to find my outlets! Outside your window looks just like mine has been looking too. I'm so ready for Spring and warm sunshine!
