woyww....playtime!

It's that day again, Wednesday , middle of the week, 2 days to Friday and the weekend!  This week for our weekly perusal into the state of my desk, I have a new toy to show you! I admit, I haven't played with it much! I have however switched it on, and it works. BEAUTIFULLY! It is quiet, and smooth, and cuts like butter, and is ten times better than my old machine. Just keeping my fingers crossed I don't break it!! lol
I did get this one from the States, and is my birthday present from my mum!

Here is the state of my other desk... not much better than last week, but with the addition of a couple of gorgeous bits I picked up from my local junk store. one is a tin from Cadburys which is embossed with feet and a handle.

If you haven't a clue about why I am showing my desk, then hop, skip and jump over to our illustrious queen of desks, Mrs Dunnit, and check out all the other desks :))
Happy Woywwing!

Ciara said...

I think you might be the first person I've seen to have the Vagabond. You do know you'll be needing a big stack of dies to go with it don't you??!! That's what I decided when I got my Big Shot express for my birthday!

Christine said...

The Vagabond! Your mum is truly lovely! :-)

okienurse said...

Very nice birthday present! I just bought my big shot a few weeks before it came out and I can't justify it! Lots of fun stuff to work with on both desks now! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #59

MaggieC said...

I shall have to just make do with my new bug and my old red Sissix, and my Silhouette and watch all the wonderful things you create with the Vagabond. I also wish I had kept all those Cadbury tins I collected over the years from visits to the factory. We all used them round here as pencil cases and sewing boxes. Oh dear, the things we regret getting rid of...

Stressed Stamper said...

Great desk... off to google it too as I dont know what it is..

Aren't mom's just the best? They go through all that effort to bring you into the world and then they buy you presents to celebrate it every year. Talk about love! (Oh, and talk about a jealous #8 ;)

What a great present. I've been looking at the Vagabond on line, but can't decide if it would just be another toy that does what my other toys already do. I hope you post about it again.
