WOYWW - Goody Bag Goodness

Happy Wednesday fellow WOYWWers. It's Cedric here today, actually on the desk. If you're wondering what my odd acronym stands for, or why I'm on the desk with a veritable amount of stash, then look Here.

The reason I'm on the desk?I wanted to take a close look at our new gift, bought for us by the cub last weekend, when we visited her for her birthday, we went to the Range where she treated us to this goody bag choc full of goodness. We've only just got round to emptying it out, although we did have a good look at the contents whilst at the cub's house.


We always like to keep new stash on the desk for a few days, both to drool over it, and to have a little go with it before putting it all away. Wow, this bag has so much in it, it's chronology goods mixed with Papermania vintage notes goodies. There's a stamp we've coveted since the Chronology range came out in the shops, steampunk inspired 8x8 papers, little notelets, stickers and decoupage sheets...... So much stash in one bag. How lucky are we? We've had a quick play with the stamp already, and will be making a card out of it later today, or this week.


We found these paperclips in The Range, and just had to buy them.


Also these mini alphabets, which were a bargain at 99p each. Too good to resist, as they will be perfect for ATCs, our art card swaps and other mini projects.


We're off for a blog hop before using our fab new image, probably to make a card or two, what fun.

With love from the bears.

  4. Second time at trying to comment Cedric, my computer must be playing up.
    Lovely stash from The Range, love that shop but went to a Hobby Lobby in America and it was like ten or so of our Range's put into one store. So huge y friend got fed up. Me, I could have spent a day there.
    Happy WOYWW, enjoy looking at your stash and then using it.
    Hugs, Neet xx 4

  5. Happy WOYWW thanks for visiting earlier. I did find one dusty clear stamp when crawling around the floor - a suitecase I think, not sure from what set. Love your workspace and chronology stash, I'm still trying to fathom out what the bottom left stamp is that came free with the doctafts magazine :) You can never have too many ittle aphabet stamps can you, and they look super.

  7. Ooh look... it's the £1 alphabets - they're absolutely fantastically useful! What a wonderful goody bag - good present-buying by the cub, and isn't the Range just fab for picking up a crafty bargain?!

  8. Come on Cedric, which one of you bears modelled for the paper clips?
    Loving all the new stash you have to play with.
    I’ve never brought one of those goodie bags but have often thought what wonderful value they are. It’s usually full of the latest ranges too, not old stuff they just want to get rid of, so well worth spending your pennies on , or receiving as a gift, as in your case.. I do have a couple of those little alphabet sets though and I can tell you, they come in very handy indeed.
    Thanks for stopping by this week.

    Happy Crafting!

  12. What a lovely bear:) The alphabet stamps were an absolute bargain! I have the set on the right (I paid a lot more than you did though) and I had forgotten all about them so I'm going to dig them out.

  19. I bought the bicycle paperclips from The Range - I can understand why you chose the bears though :) I just wish they sold the bear design in the muli-coloured option as well.
    I so wish I had bought that goodie bag - they were selling it off for £9.99, and I decided that I wouldn't buy it. Mistake on my part, as I'm quite jealous now, seeing all the goodies it contains :)
    Have a wonderful WOYWW!

  20. What a lot of lovely stuff for you to play with. Thank you for your visit today. I have just finished stamping all my stamps into a loose leaf file, now I need to make sure they are all on computer so I can cross reference them. I just hope it all works as it is designed to. Have a good week. xx Maggie #8
