WOYWW - cedric with stamps

Hullo there, Cedric here with you today on a chilly Wednesday in September. So chilly in fact that I'd really rather be in bed,

But the other bears tell me the sheets are far too cold for my chilly fur, and have insisted I sit at the desk while they warm the bed for me. How thoughtful of them.

I figured, while I was waiting, I may as well join the weekly fun that is WOYWW, a crafters' delight. If you don't know what the acronym stands for, click the link, take a pic of your desk. And join in. But remember, once you hop, you can't stop!

As you may have guessed from the first photo, I'm making a card for a friend from free stamps issued with Let's Get Stamping magazine. Disaster struck while I was trying to free the stamps from the plastic....

But a phone call to the company led to them sending me a new set of stamps, as the first set were stuck with what felt like industrial strength glue. Isn't it great when companies acknowledge that their products may be faulty?

Anyway, I shall carry on crafting, in the hope of taking my mind off the cold. The other bears are taking an awfully long time to warm the bed for me. Brrr.

With love from the bears


  1. Hi.
    Loving having a peek at your world today. It all looks like fun from here. I do think you got suckered and if I were you I would climb right on back under those sheets!
    Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great week.

  2. Very tempting to go back under the covers here too but I am resisting putting the heating on. Great that the company are sending another stamp to you

    Thanks for sharing your crafting space and have a great week

  3. Hum! I don't know if I'd altogether trust the other bears on this one, Cedric! Those sheets don't look anything other than very cosy to me!Great about the stamps! I hope you can now create with them to your heart's content - and it's much more fun being up and about than hunkered down under those sheets! Julie Ann #45

  4. That's good news that they sent you another set of stamps to replace the faulty ones
    Keep warm

  5. Ah yes me thinks the beats have pulled the woolly sheets over your eyes, Cedric. Climb right in there and warm yourself. :) Shame about the stamp but good they're replacing it. Do hate when that happens though. A snugly Happy WOYWW! Nan G #3

  6. Turf those lazy bears out of that bed and have a warm, youve earned it having written such a good post

  7. Sorry to hear about your stamp, but glad to hear the company is sending you a new set. You and the bears try to stay warm. happy crafting #1

  8. Here its not too cold, can actually see the sun. re the stamps , it does happen, cos they are pretty cheaply made, so you have to be careful. Have a good day. Francesca #84

  9. I think Cedric is a go-getter! I was like the other bears this am and didn't want to leave my bed for work at 4:30 am! It was cold! Glad to hear of great customer service and your stamp replacement, love shops like that. Hope you and the bears have a great week! Winnie #83

  10. I think under the covers is a good idea, nice and snuggly! Happy WOYWW! ♥ Karen ♥ 87 x

  11. hi Cedric how kind of the bears being bed warmers would have loved to snuggled under a duvet today but work calls ! hope you have fun with the replacement stamps hugs Andrea #47

  12. Oh Oooops !!! That was a bit of a disastrophe !!! :-D I am glad they are sending you some new ones. Hope that bed is warmed up now :-)

  13. Ooh! I like that saying about blog hopping: Once you hop, you can't stop. How nice of the company to send out new freebies. I know exactly what you mean by they felt like they were stuck down with industrial glue. I've gotten stamps like that before!!!! So impossible to remove from their backing sheet. I guess you'll have to find something else to play with today then but I have faith in you!

  14. I'd have rather stayed under the covers today too, shame it wasn't possible. Glad you got some replacement stamps.. some of them sure do stick fast! Have a great day and thanks for the visit. Helen 22

  15. Hi Cedric
    I think the other bears are trying to pull the wool over your eyes. I think you should be snuggled down in that bed with them.
    I look forward to seeing what you do with your stamps and full marks to the company for sending you a new set of stamps
    Have a great day today and a wonderful weekend

  16. Hi Cedric,
    I thought today was so much warmer than the past three days where I haven't wanted to get out of bed at all!
    That was a good result with the stamps!

  17. How fabulous Cedric that your stamps were replaced and if I was you I would definitely be going and checking the bed for yourself. Thanks for always making me smile reading your posts too! Hope you and all the bears have a great week! Danie #38

  18. Happy Belated WOYWW. I hope that you either have the heating on or have made space in the bear bed for yourself?! We have had the heating on here for at least 2 weeks - and my craft room door stays firmly shut to keep the heat in!! Well done for getting replacement stamps sent to you. Ali x #63

  19. I can't believe how it went from SUMMER to WINTER so quickly. Time to hibernate? Hope not quite yet...

    Happy (now my internet is back) WOYWW!

  20. Hello Cedric give the other bears a hug from us, I do hope you stay warm you don't want to get that fur all chilled. Here in Melbourne it has been really wet for september but spring is upon us and hopefully it will warm for us soon.

    Happy Belated WOYWW

  21. Poor chilly Cedric - can I recommend a hot water bottle or two - one at the small of the back, and one tucked under your feet - does the trick for me. Hope the other bears roll over and make some room for you soon!

  22. Poor cedric, if I were you I would jump in with them and make them warm you up! So glad you are getting another set of stamps from the company. Sorry I am so late in visiting, work got on top of me. Happy Belated WOYWW. Thanks for sharing. Caro x (#76)

  23. What a bummer that it's so cold there, I won't tell you that it was 30 deg yesterday (he he). Grab a blanket and keep playing with your cards, it looks like fun. Excellent that the company replaced your stamps.
    Have a great week.

  24. Sounds like summer is definitely over. I hope you and the bears stay warm. April #115
