WOYWW #504

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/p/what-is-woyww.html  and all will be revealed!

Here we are, back again after another week - boy these weeks go by fast! It will be February on Friday! Where does the time go? Anyway, it has been incredibly cold here for the last week or so, today is -16°C, feeling like -23°C. It has snowed a few times which means everything is pretty again. My stamping Room is the coldest room in the house for some reason, I have no idea why. But I'm sure it is at least 10° colder in there than anywhere else. And on these very cold days, it's not a place I can spend much time. But I have been getting some organizing and tidying done, not much else though:







As I said, the snow is beautiful again, and the cats just love to sit and stare outside, dreaming of warmer days. Mittsy has escaped a few times, she is so fast out that door! We have to be very careful. . .



 Inky on her favourite perch, Mittsy wants to play! Can you find her?


Mittsy has a nice view from here. . .

I hope everyone has a wonderful week, that's it from us today. Hopefully I will be able to make something Valentiney for hubby for the 14th in my freezing room!

PS-I have a question for you. I have 4 drawers full of coloured pigment ink pads. I rarely if ever use them. I use mostly Distress Inks and black inks in my work. I hate the thought of getting rid of them, but I feel that I should, since I really never use them. What are your thoughts? Get rid? Keep in case? Such a hard decision!

That is a tidy desk! Well done! I want snow but without the -16C! Inky still looks a bit suspicious of Mitsy LOL. If you feel attached to the ink pads, just keep them. You never know when you might need them again - although I think they might have a tendency of drying out. I have a set somewhere too, but I'm thinking I can always re-ink them if they dry out - even with distress inks, why not? So unless you have a good reason for getting rid of them - I would just keep them! I got rid of stuff in the past that I thought I would never use again only to regret it later! Happy Wednesday - keep warm! zsuzsa #20

Can you pass them on to a school/college art class? I passed on a lot of my unused items to a local seniors group - now I'm happy knowing they're being used in creating, and not just sitting in a drawer :)
Happy WOYWW!

I use pigment inks for heat embossing Linda as they stay wet for a little longer. They are great with clear powder as you can determine the colour by the ink so you don't need as many colours of embossing powders. My shed is also a bit cooler in this weather (although -5 is about as cold as it's got outside. Say warm and meow to Mittsy and Inky. Sarah #4

Hi Linda, I love my Pigment pads, especially for embossing, but i have seen people use them for blending, the same as for dye inks. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #7 XxX

I have loads of ink pads I rarely use, in all shades and varieties... I should probably get rid of mine too... but like you can't bear to... hope you find something to do with them. Love the snow pics (it's fine until you need to get places!) Helen #3

Your desk looks great. Happy WOYWW xx Jan (21)

Oooh, you are having a cold snap over there, like the poor folks under the Polar vortex in the States...keep warm. I suspect that even if Mittsy got out, she'd hightail it back inside again very quickly in those temps. I would suggest getting rid of the inks, someone else can have the benefit and you'd gain some valuable storage space. If you haven't used them by now, you probably never will.

No good asking me about what to save and what to throw. I am the world's biggest hoarder. I have Ancient Page ink pads (blast from the past) that I first used when I started stamping donkey's years ago. I just think I might use them one day - variety of colours.
Love your tidy desk, and the labels.
Does Mittsy like the snow, if I remember correctly Inky is not that keen.
Hugs, Neet 1 xx

Hi Linda. Lovely tidy places there today. Keep or get rid?? I have some inks from about 15years ago - and they work better than some bought in the past couple of years... so I'm not really a good example to anyone...
Great snow through the window. Personally I love the white stuff - I love frosty mornings - we need them - gets rid of all the bugs and nasties. Given half a chance, and being able to drive again, I would be out in Snowdonia - probably simply gazing rather than climbing high these days, but just LOVING being there.
Take care. God bless.

Hi Linda, the view looks pretty but pretty cold too. I think if you have stuff that you've not used for two years then you probably wont use them and with inks they will just dry up so either use them or pass them on to a charity shop and some one else can have the pleasure of them. Just have to take my own advise and do it Lol! Have a great week and a happy belated woyww, Angela x15x

Marit said...

What a neat, tiday desk... everything in order, YAY for you! I once had a workspace that was very cold in wintertimes, I sometimes sat there with arm-warmers but most of the time I took my stuff to the dining table back then... my atelier in this apartment is warmer than the living room somehow, I had to turn the heather down here 'cause I was sweating! I guess it has to do with the wind blowing to the walls & windows and the place/direction the room is at... stay warm! Happy - belated - woyww and have a good weekend! Love from Holland, Marit #18

Hi Linda!
Sounds as if, by reading the comments, that keeping the pigment pads is a good idea. You just never know. Love the kitties. Loved playing 'Where's Mitsy. She blends right into the sofa LOL Tidy desk! Hopefully, mine will join the ranks next week. Fingers crossed LOL Creative Blessings! Kelly #29
