WOYWW - New Pawchases

Wednesday again? Goodness, and over halfway through the year now too, soon be Christmas!! Well, as it's Wednesday that must mean it's time for another WOYWW. What on earth does that stand for? I hear you ask, well look right here to see.

This week there's a mix of happy mail on the bears' desk. We seem to be collecting new pawchases. Whenever we buy new stash we always like to leave in on the desk until we have a little play with it. To the back, leaning against the Cricut, is a Papermaze June kit that we still haven't got around to playing with, although it has been opened and admired several times. These kits are only £10 and are stuffed full of stashy goodness each month. We love them.

Also on the desk are our new pots of Golden Gel medium and glass bead gel. We've been covetting these for a while and were very happy to receive an order from Artist Trading Post including these two.

You can see some foam alpha stamps, which are new pawchases from ebear. We used to have no end of these, but donated them in our grand clear out. Now we art journal we felt the need for more. Good old ebear eh?

You'll see we've kept all the packaging from our Artist Trading Post order, how kind of them to include some free bubble wrap for us to use on our art journal.

Finally (did we hear a collective sigh there?) we have the large art journal open ready for a play session, to the right of that are a stack of Craft Stamper magazines, all post it noted for inspiration. Oh, and you can see the ipad, we're listening to tunes as we play.

We're off for a nose to see what's on your workspace, see you next week.
With love from the bears

  6. Hello again Bears :-)
    In answer to your question - it is..........

    χαριτωμένο γούνινο αρκουδάκι

    We use αρκουδάκι in this case because we mean 'small' bears, which is what the 'άκι' indicates.

    There you go :-D
