WOYWW 31: Lounging With Legend, Playing With Paper Artsy


Happy What’s On Your Workspace Wednesday! Today Legend is cat-napping (it’s too hot to do much else!) and I am tidying up my workspace before I delve into my August projects and swaps.

I do have a new addition on my desk I thought I’d share – it’s a piano lamp my husband bought for me several years ago! I have needed a desk lamp for quite some time because the lighting in my workspace is poor (great by day – non-existent by night!) but the original light bulbs made the lamp way too hot for desktop use. So, my husband replaced the original light bulbs with cooler, natural daylight-emulating bulbs and this lamp has now found a new home!

How many of you know WOYWWer Leandra Franich, the owner of Paper Artsy? I met her a few months ago through WOYWW and am so thankful for the connection! If you love collage stamps and art products but are unfamiliar with Paper Artsy, you have got to pay them a visit! Here is a sampling of some of the goodies Leandra sent me in my PaperArtsy Mega Goodie Bag (above)!

Now, I was so impressed by my interactions with Leandra and the quality of her products, I recently decided to splurge on a few more Paper Artsy goodies! Shopping is easy for international shoppers due to the inclusion of the Select Currency feature in the top right corner of their online shopping site. Shipping rates to the US were great, and the delivery time was good – all in all, a wonderful experience!

I treated myself to a beautiful package of unique papers (my husband loves them!) and this awesome art stamp. Beside the stamp are some of the cool extras Leandra included in the package! Thanks, Leandra, for such a wonderful experience!

Now, if you would like to see what the other WOYWWers are up to, please leave a comment so I’ll know you stopped by, then hop on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground for peeks into the lives of crafters around the globe!

Finally, hurry over to the Verve Blog Hop and My Vintage Christmas Giveaway for your chance to win some fabulous prizes!

    Legend looks good and I love that lamp. Those stamps are really artsy. My kind of artsy, even. But I'm just not crazy about clear stamps. They don't stick to my block and I have enough trouble stamping as is (grin). Happy WOYWW.

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my desk, and for letting me know you are another FM sufferer – there are lots of us out here in the art world. I always tell my Beloved that staying home to make art is one of the few compensations of the condition!! Lovely pussycat and I'm a Paper Artsy fan too – I have a whole shoebox full of their stamps …

  22. Reta says:

    Is it the heat of the day or the work load that requires Legend to take a nap? At three years old he shoud be able to kick up his paws and stay up a little longer! (Smile)

    The lamp looks great on the desk,and I'm glade you're finally able to use it. Also I don't think Legend can knock it over as paper towels are his thing to play with. LOL

  23. Penni says:

    Legend's looking especially fine today.
