WOYWW 276 - Tea with Paper

Welcome to my crafty corner of the world. Thought I would give a different perspective from across my desk so you can see how truly messy I get when I'm into a few projects! Visit other crafty desks around the planet at this link:

Just take a photo of your messy middle-of-the-week desk, and share it on Miss Julia's blog. We love new desks! Now, here's what is actually going on when you see my side of the crafty corner table.
I am making little paper teacups. I have no idea why I'm doing this. They will have sentiments on them, and I don't know...I love teacups...I love my scrap papers and so it all goes together. They might end up in collages or greeting cards, who knows!
And I'm playing with all these Itty Bitty stamps I won on the Unity blog--loving it.
And here's my newest addition to the crafty corner--the quilter's cut 'n press. So cool. Now I can iron my little pieces of fabric right at my craft table. The cashier at JoAnn Fabrics said that this is the best one of all the brands, and has the most cushion to it. And I used my coupon...yay! I noticed Pokey Bolten using it on her quilting show the other day, and I went on a mission to find one. Only JoAnn had it--that's why I love that store.

Have a happy week lovelies!

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch Happy


  1. Lots of interest here. Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a great day and a lovely crafting week to come. Hazel, WOYWW #47 x

  2. Ooh I like your messy corner, it looks nice and homely! The teacups are cute, but I'm English so I like tea, although I do like mine in a big mug that I can wrap my hands around! Your handy dandy new quilting tool is, well, handy!

  3. Pokey Bolten can't be a real name, surely??! That made me laugh a lot! (Sorry, infantile sense of humour here!).
    Am loving the tea cups and hearts...that was a good win, wasn't it? Hope you have fun playing with that lovely lot!
    I'm not posting today as I'm down at my dad's again, but I wanted it see how you were and to say hello :-)
    Hugs, LLJ xx

    1. Oh, I hope you are having a good time at your dad's! Thank you for letting me know, because it's so good to touch base with you every week soul sister! Yes, Pokey is this pretty blonde lady with a show called "Quilting Arts" and you would love that show. Her nickname is Pokey because it's a short version of Pocahontas--although I don't know why because she is very white and very blonde!! She has an iron she uses on the show that lifts itself up after she sets it down. I saw it at JoAnn's, and it costs 200 dollars! But at least I got the cool little ironing board. Hugs to you and have a great week dearest!

  4. What a good idea to make those teacups. They are so cute! They will make great cards. I might copy that idea...
    Thank you for letting me look over you shoulder.

  5. I love little tea cups and I'm sure you will find the perfect place to use them. I was looking for Lunch Lady and now I know why I didn't find her. The Cut N Press product is great. Be well Carole #59

  6. Hi Sandy! Thanks for visiting my blog! I love your little craft corner - it looks very cozy and inviting!

  7. I love your place - very cozy with that beautiful chair! Must be fun creating at this place!

  8. Really...I've heard a lot of unusual names, but I think Pokey may well be up there!! I love teacups too, and Iove that you're making some for no reason other than you want to...gotta be the best way to craft.

  9. Sounds like you're really having fun there! Do show the finished cups and quilting projects, won't you? Have a lovely week, Chris # 29

  10. Hi Sandy, I did enjoy seeing your desk from a different perspective and would love to have a delve around your stuff. Your cups are a great way of using up scraps and will make super embellishments to have to hand. That is a fabulous pressing/cutting board ... I have a different one but find it a boon too :) Have a great week. Elizabeth x #62

  11. Cut and press looks fab - what a good idea. I have emailed you. x Jo

  12. What a cozy space. :-) And I hope you share your teacups when they're finished.

  13. Do you really need a reason to make tea cup anything? Tea cups are like little works of art and bring happiness to any crafty project...and I look forward to seeing yours!
    Thanks for sharing! Have a good week. Hugs, Kathy Jo #41
