WOYWW 153 Three Cheers!

WOYWW 153
Three cheers for the red, white and blue!
The bank holiday Monday utterly mixed me up as I ended up thinking today was Tuesday.... almost missed posting. 
I'm in the middle of preparation for the Port Sunlight Show on Saturday so it's organised chaos here with a burst of crafting.
If you are going to visit the show,we'll be wearing our WOYWW badges and there will be quite a few others there wearing them.
 Please do call by stampattack and say hello and who, knows, there may be something worth stopping for if you are a WOYWWer!! I know Redanne will be there and I look forward to meeting her!! 
Remember-it's an all ticket event.
Following the trend for Queen and Country, with the forthcoming Olympics and Jubilee celebrations, I made some bunting to decorate the stand and to showcase stampattack's new patriotic plate of stamps.
Instead of making ATC giveaways I've made mini flags 
I've put the finished items off my messy desk and on to the dining table ready to pack up.
Still going strong on my desk, having fun but the mess gets deeper as I finish off more samples.
You'll spot some of the new Distress Pens that Carol has given me to play with? There are two "Mouse's Tales", at the front, made from the new Alice in Wonderland related stamp of the Mouse's Tail-Tale! 
Being late today means that you can share my breakfast pancakes!  
Enjoy.... I did!
Call in on the 'Keeper of the Desks" at stamping-ground where our own dear Julia leads this grand blog hop, an expose of the world's craft desks every Wednesday.

Om nom nom, pancakes for breakfast! Lush! Puts my porridge and banana in the shade :P

Sorry I didn't pop by last week, only just found your comment - Blogger marked it as spam for some reason, have hoiked it out and published it now. What cheek.

Good luck with the show :) The flags are fabulous!

I cannot imagine that anyone with a DT wouldn't thank their lucky stars to have you Jo,, you work so hard and I love your ideas - the flags instead of ATCS...genius, so fun! Must say I like the stamp plate rather too much! Would value your opinion on the Distress Markers when you've got five...have a fab weekend at Port S!

I haven't been here for a very long time, and the first thing I notice is that there are no strawberries on the table! Where did they go?
Love your creative mess - looks good to me. Have fun at the show.

Hi Jo, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the lovely gift at Happy Stampers and also for recognising me!! When I got home I found out that I was one of the people who won Tim Holtz's April Tagfest! I have not come down from the clouds yet - it is a first for me ..........thanks again. Crafty hugs, Anne Rx
