WOYWW - Pawly Horace Gets Creative

Hello there, goodness, ANOTHER Wednesday? Really? But we only just had one. Well, if you insist. I guess that means another WOYWW then? Yippeee, it's the best bit of Wednesday in my furry opinion. All the
nosy curious bears and humans get to peak into other crafters' lives, courtesy of Julia at Stamping Ground.

With that in mind, would you like to see the bears' desk? It's Horace here today, I've bravely dragged myself out of my sick bed to show you our desk, as the other bears are all napping! Don't worry though, I have my special trapper hat on to keep my furry head warm.

On with the desk.... I'm finishing a journal page which I started on a visit to the cub, other people's stash is much more interesting than your own, and I had soon created a bright background, I borrowed the Indigoblu stamp as I wanted to stamp her up in red, and the cub only had black archival ink. I also borrowed some sentiment stamps, as I wanted to copy one and knew I'd never remember what it said once I was home. You can also see two Craft Stamper mags, the old telephone directory being used as a glue and wipe off book, the ipodgy, which Podgy generously allowed me to use, for a small fee of 60 Custard Creams........

Here's my finished journal page, eek, isn't it busy? Oh well, aren't they always when I journal?

Would you like a close up?

I'm off for a lovely hop around the WOYWW desks. See you soon......
Ooh, hold on! Don't go yet......have you seen our challenge? It runs for two months this time, so still time to enter. Have a look here for details, we'd love for you to join in.

With love from the bears


  1. Fabulous journal pages Horace - such lovely colours. Really diggin' the hat :-)
    I hope you start to feel well really soon :-)

    I entered the Challenge but can I have more that one go ?????

    Thanks for sharing on WOYWW (I haven't done mine yet !!)

    IKE xxxxxxxxx

    1. Oh yes, please do, have 10 goes if you like. We may squeeze another one in ourselves as yet.

  2. Ooooh - forgot to say - I have had a go at my first Art Journal pages :-) You inspired me along to have a go. I will be posting it in the Blog Hop for Smeared & Smudged tomorrow if you fancy a peek :-D xxxxxxxx

  3. Happy WOYWW. Hope you are feeling better soon. That hat must be really helping to keep your furry head warm in this horrible weather. The Challenge, as usual, is on my To Do List - and getting closer to the top! Ali x #27

  4. Lovely pages.
    I think 60 custard creams is a very reasonable fee :) in fact I may start charging like this too!
    Happy WOYWW

  5. Wow! Horace you're one talented bear; I love busy. Thanks for sharing your bear good creativity, and you read too!!! xxx #58 Julie Ann.

  6. Hope you're better soon. the journal page is gorgeous. Helen 16

  7. Poor things... so sorry you're still feeling pawly. But those lovely pages must have felt therapeutic. Personally, I think Podgy's got a bit of a cheek - 20 custard creams max, I'd say!

    (Oh, great hat!)

  8. Wow, as you say an amazing riot of colour! Looks awesome. Oooh- custard creams! My second most favourite biscuit. Beaten to first place by the awesomeness of Bourbons! Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #85 xxx

  12. Hi Horace and rest of the Bears- So sorry to hear your not feeling up to par this week. Love the journal pages! I've tried simpler pages, but tend to like doing and seeing the busier, more colorful pages!

  14. Oh Horace, hope you will soon be feeling much better :)
    Hi to all the Bears and LOVE your beautiful bright journal pages
    The colours are wonderful. Don't forget the warm honey and lemon if its a cold, maybe with a wee dram too :)
    Have a Beautiful week Heather # 135

  15. Gorgeous colours in your journal there. So bright and happy! Love them! Happy WOYWW! Karen 127 x

  16. I guess that 60 custard creams wasn’t such a high price to for the use of the ipodgy,. Now if it had been 60 chocolate digestives I might have had to stop and think long and hard before I agreed.
    You’ve done a fab job with the journal page and I love, love, love the bright colours, heaven knows it dark and dismal outside and we need a bit of cheering up.

    Hope you're on the mend soo Horace.
    Happy Crafting!
