WOYWW 202--Yummy Yarns and Celery Stamping

Isn't it amazing how a desk can kind of stay the same over a week's time? (Visit desks all over the planet right here on Mrs. Dunnit's beautiful blog party.) Then...other weeks...your desk looks different every single day! Well--I don't know if it's trying to diet a bit, or what, but I've had a lot more energy lately. Yay me! So I finally did the celery stamping experiment. Yes...I have a lot of crap...I mean, er, craft on my desk right now. But, rest assured, I'm having fun!

So, I have a celery heart, dried out a bit, and I painted it and started stamping. I think it's quite fun, the results, and so now, I'll be stamping green more often! This could be a flower--or the Milky Way galaxy...who knows!

I've got a fun new tin of flowers to play with, and sugar-n-cream yarn finally went on sale for 97 cents. I went a little crazy. Oh well. I'm turning into the crazy crafting lady! Have a happy day at your worktable!

Minnie and Joseph can't wait to get out and soak up the sun!


  1. Love it! I put up celery stamping on my blog last week! How fun! I used distress paints. Love yours done in purple. Great stash of flowers and your adorable kitties!! Winnie#76

  2. What a beautiful bowl of yarn! SueC#97

  3. Well, if I could get yarn for cents,, I'd be an even bigger, madder, crafty lady too!! Look at that bowl of sweet, pastel tones...they remind me of sugared almonds :) have fun knitting that pile of gorgeousness!
    And while I have visions of you jumping up and down on a poor, defenceless stick of celery..... ;).......... the stamping went really well! It looks like an old fashioned rose to me. How clever and amazing is that??
    I think the reason why we get on so well is that shared sense of joy and wonder. Long may it continue :)

  5. What a wonderfully busy desk. That yarn is gorgeous. Love the celery painting. I wonder what effect you would get if you were to cut it at an oblique angle instead of straight across.... hmmm. Note to self - buy stick of celery. Have a great week.

  10. I love your celery stamping, it always turns out one of a kind! And what a pretty tin of flowers, you are sure going to have fun playing with those! And what girl is gonna turn down a sale on go for it girl!!! Your stuff looks like lots of fun...Cathryn #141

  11. Definitely a cool texture from the celery heart. Great deal on yarn, did you check out the Cinch? If you look it up on you tube and see travel journals it is such a great idea. Can even make your own art journals. :-) Brigita #97

  12. It's funny that using that celery heart is how we would stamp when kids ... but with potatos very kewl all those flowers look very lush hugs Nikki 6

  13. Don't worry, nobody here thinks you are crazy, 97 cent yarn, you go girl! Happy WOYWW! Lindsay #88

  14. No kidding, Lindsay is right--get it while it's on sale!

    So your Minnie and Joseph look an awful lot like our Daisy and Maggie . . . only our two would never sit that close together!

    Happy WOYWW to you!

  15. You've inspired me to cut off the bottom of my celery lol. I usually get hungry and start tearing off stalks and there's not much to print with when that is done. Thanks for visiting my blog! #15
