WOYWW 154...moving spaces

It's that time of the week again, and I am here showing off my desk...only this time I have cheated marginally..only marginally...and am showing  you my desk from last Saturday at Port Sunlight!!! I am sure it will count... I mean after all, I didn't take part last week due to other committments.. namely that thing called ....work!
Can you spot the headband with the wobbly flags... doing my bit for the Queen and country!I love working in my "pop-up" shop. I get to chatter incessantly about inks and dies and sprays and just generally make a nuisance of myself to anyone who will listen!!

Loads and loads of people I know dropped by.. Sue Roddis, Tracey Evans,

 my gorgeous talented friend Sarah Anderson ,

and lots of my customers whom I love! I even got a jar of pickles from my dear friend Annie... yum yum!!
All in all, it was very pleasant way to spend a Saturday!! Now i have been a very bad woywwer, and have so little time, that getting around to everyone's desks is quite a feat for me... so this week, I am aiming to make it to as many as I can get to....
If you haven't a clue what on earth I am wittering on about.. hop, skip and fly over the internet to Julia's blog , and check out the whopping amount of crafty desks!!
Have a very happy woyww
Hugs

Those are some BRIGHT tags. Big, bold, and beautiful. And I am in LOVE with your headband, even though I probably don't have enough hair to hold it on (grin). Happy WOYWW from #5.

Super bright tags! I like the look of your store too! I know the feeling of tending store and feeling excited when a friend comes in. When I was younger I would stay in our gift shop, and it really is wonderful to see a kindred spirit come by! :^) patsy #8

Have a great week.

Glad to see you flying the flag Jennie - love those papers below the headband on the top photo.
Everyone looks so happy and I now realise how much I miss Sarah as I never see her these days.
Thanks for the memories of those folks and everything else.
Hugs, Neet #11 x

Always nice to have friends drop by, so nice that you were able to take their picture too! Are they WOYWW'ers? waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

A great popup shop, looks like you had fun hugs trace x 18

Astrid Maclean said...

Your pop up desk looks amazing, must be wonderful to have one of those. I so wished I could make it too one of these shows. Fancy coming up to one in Scotland one of these days? What about the creative stitches and hobby craft one in the SECC in Glasgow? Would give us a nice break from peel offs....
Happy hopping

Great desk and shop. Wish I could get to some of the craft fairs, but at least I save spending money!! Happy WOYWW. Ali x #17

Port Sunny is such a great show Jennie and it is always good to see you there, even if all I could afford by the time I got round to you were the re-inkers. Love your tags.
Happy WOYWW

Never made it up as far as Port Sunlight but it sounds a great show... I was thinking how tidy your desk was before you confessed... Have a good day

Loving your headband and all those stamps just waiting to be bought!! I loved Port Sunlight, it was first trip and I spent far too much but loved every minute of it. Hope to see you next time I go. Anne #9

Bridget Larsen said...

You have a craft shop!!! wow how can you stand it hahaha
Bridget #12

Jacqueline said...

WOW! I MUST get a chance to play with my Dylusions if that's the way those colours turn out!

I notice a sneaky peek at an 'altered book' in that photo too, I'm in the middle of one just now and just love it!

I seriously hope you didn't have set up that stand all by yourself!!!!( says me dropping a hint in the hope that Jenny will take my offer of help!) lol...Well you can't blame me for trying lol!! You have it looking great though! Tis a little piece of craft heaven, shame about all the hard work though.

Thanks for sharing,

Jackie x #84

Jackie said...

Hi Jennie, I hope you're ok. Great work space :)

Julia Dunnit said...

Personally, I prefer to see your desk and creations than worry about whether you've had time to comment on my blog...Oh look - there's Tracy! WOYWW Wave!!
Im going to guess that this phot was begnning or end of day...I can't believe you produced those lovely tags and kept the desk top looking so pristine. The bit about chatting - I believe...there's nothing nicer than a demonstrator who can work and talk at the same time. Skill.

Glenda said...

It sounds like you had a wonderful time! I love the bright tags and boy are you one neat crafter!

Amanda said...

Now that looks like a fun desk to play at, sounds like you had a great time. Hugs, Amanda #76

Love those tags! Glad you had fun.

TwinkleToes2day said...

HI
I clicked on your name randomly from the Stamping Ground blog, just to see what's on your desk basically (I don't have a blog, I mainly crochet but have recently joined Tag Tuesday - to see if I do have an artistic side at all) - anyhoo - wanting to learn more about stamping etc and what you clever arty folks use, I clicked on your links for The Stamp Connection and The Artistic Stamper - but - neither work. And the reason I noticed is spelling mistakes. The web address for The Stamp Connection only has one n in connection and the web address for The Artistic Stamper has s & i the wrong way round.
Just thought I'd let you know - who knows how many new customers you may now get ;)
Best wishes, Mo
ps - Those tags on your desk are lovely & colourful!

CraftygasheadZo said...

Sounds like lots of fun, great pics too! Take care & enjoy WOYWW. Zo xx 66

Kate said...

It looks like so much fun, tiring but fun!

Annie said...

Hi Jennie........those tags look amazing. So far I have only made a card with Dylusions inks ( which I am assuming they are ) but you have inspired me to make a tag............after my recycling of course !! Crafty hugs Annie :)

ps Thanks for helping with CC101 graduate thingy... I managed to add it to my blog sidebar x

Laura said...

Your pop-up shop looks delectable -- so many fun stencils hanging there! Your tags are so bright -- I see some of the Dylusions spray there on the table. I, too, run out of time to visit many "desks" -- my time is very limited, but I try to visit a good chunk each week. Happy WOYWW from Laura #117

Queen Of Toys said...

You dont write waffle by the way you write words that mean heaps to other creative people. Love your desk this week and what fun you have been having chatting and sharing information on products. Thanks for visiting me this week.

kassa said...

RosA said...

Those tags are gorgeous! Fabulous colours! And what a great day you must have had! (I have that Handmade Books by Sue Roddis. It's a really good book.) Happy WOYWW!

Scrappekatten said...

no158 To day it is Norways national day, maybe I will pick up your idea with the headband, but Norwegian flags of course LOL

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Your headband totally made me giggle. How fun! Love the gorgeous tags on your desk. I would love to stop by and have a chat and have you show me all about all the great things on your desk. But alas, the private jet is in the shop. ;-)

Queen Lightwell said...

Wish I lived close enough to pop by, your store looks like its chock full of treasures! :)

Michelle Webb said...

I'm loving your craft show workdesk, eye spy the Dylusions inks, they are my favourite craft item at the moment. I also spotted the blue edge of one of your fabulous altered books, from what we see, it looks amazing. Happy WOYWW. Michelle x #122

nerllybird said...

I was hoping to go to Port Sunlight this year, but it didn't work out. One day I'll make it; I want to see where my grandfather came from which is up that way. Your desk looks like a great place to be!
