WOYWW? Playtime for Horace

Helloooo, I have the desk all to myself and I'm planning to make the most of it, look at all the crafty goodness I have ready to play with. I've started already, I'm so excited to have some creative time. I've begun a background by rubbing purple watercolour crayon through our fabearlous new stencil from
Danie May's blog candy gift.

Why am I blethering on about the desk? Because it's WOYWW of course. What's that? Well pad along to Stamping Ground and all will be revealed.

What else is on the desk? Well, what isn't? Every glue we own, some paint brushes, a couple of stamps, a half decorated mini chest of drawers..... While Wilbear is out of the way, the creative bear will play! Once I've had a little look around to see what every other WOYWer is up to.

With love from the bears


  1. Horace seems to have fun. I never tried to rub watercolour crayons through stencils. Must try this. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Horace, that is a nice stencil you have there. You can do lots of creative things with that. How nice that you get a chance to spread out and play. Have lots of fun!

  8. Thank you so much for your visit earlier, Horace! How did you manage it with so much crafting going on! Your paws must have been covered in glue and paint. Have I asked before, do you have any advice on getting gooey messes out of fur! Daisy, our cat would love to know a way - other than using her tongue of course! Julie Ann xx #43

    1. Our secret? Use Marigolds! No messy paws!

  10. Stencils! I need help from some furry paws - mine are in a horrible state and need addressing. I've begun but tidying is so BORING....

    Happy WOYWW!
