WOYWW 148 and Blog Candy Winner

Happy What's on your Workdesk? Wednesday y'all! What a difference a week makes! The weather this time last week was shorts and t-shirt and this week it's winter coat and thermals! Good job we have our creative spirits to keep us warm! Thanks, as always, to the lovely Julia who hosts our weekly snoop around the crafty cribs of our fellow artists.
Look who's back - well, not back exactly but brand new! Please welcome Charlie II - I am soooooo happy to have him - though I'm breaking him in gently! If you aren't familiar with my tale of woe and then joy please feel free to catch up!
On my desk are goodies. Some Tim Holtz stamps given to me by Stephanie-Emma (thank you once again!), my signed Wendy Vecchi Book 6 (thank you again Wendy!) from a competition over at the Everything Wendy Vecchi group and other bits as well as my new 'good wife' present from David - a new iPad - guess all that b!*$#y ironing paid off!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you David - I promise to keep trying to be a good wife!
I would also like to announce the winner of my Altered Book following the weekend's It's a Creative World Blog Hop - drum roll please - it's...
Which is Michaela who said:
Hi Gabrielle

Hi Gabrielle
OMG! I had to check if I had my glasses on just in case I read my name incorrectly. Thank you sooooo much Mr Random Number Generator to pick me but the biggest thanks goes to you Gabrielle because I find your work absolutely fantastic and owning something made by you is an absolute honour.
Thank you soooo much.

The Vagabond is back! Whoo hoo! I hope all goes well this time; I have my fingers crossed. I guess that ironing DID pay off. That is an excellent Good Wife present. Are you sure there isn't another present for a Bad Wife? You know, nudge nudge, wink wink.

SophieNewton said...

I am so tempted by a Vagabobnd, they just look awesome and my arm hurts from so much manual cranking!! Glad he's back x

Marjie Kemper said...

Well that's a load of goodness! So glad Charlie II has arrived and found his rightful home. Happy cutting!

Hels Sheridan said...

YAY! You got your Charlie back... hope this one behaves!! If I come and do all your ironing d'ay fink I could have an iPad too? LOL

Laura said...

Glad you have Charlie in your possession and congrats on the iPad. Hmmm, I never iron and I don't have an iPad -- never thought there might be a correlation there. ha, ha

Happy WOYWW (on Friday). ~ Laura #118
