It's time for our weekly cruise around the blogosphere of artsy/craftsy workdesks around the world courtesy of Julia at Stamping Ground.  This was the view last night after receiving a major SU order.

I took advantage of Sale-a-Bration and got a lot of free stuff.  I also got many of the punches I needed from the Clearance Rack at considerable savings.  They are the "old style" but hey - they punch just dandy!

Look at that pile of delicious color!

The majority of these stamp sets were free through either hostess benefits or Sale-A-Bration benefits.  I think I only paid for two of these, and one was at 50% and one was with my birthday discount that SU gives demonstrators.

Now, don't think this is a normal order for me.  This was a H.U.G.E. order for me, as this is most likely my last quarterly order as a demonstrator.  The customers/workshops/sales are just not there, and it's time to cut the cord of being a hobby demonstrator and spending money I don't have, especially since I just "retired" week before last.  So I stocked up on things and will just have to be good with that.

Be sure you hop over to Julia's blog and check out all of the other creative work spaces!

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!

  7. Loving the colours and the new goodies look fab. Enjoy! Thanks for sharing & enjoy this week's WOYWW. I've been nosing at lots of desks in my attempt to visit everyone. Zo xx 83

  8. I do love the SU papers. They are such great quality! I was a demonstrator over a decade ago..... and a hobby one at that. I had two groups of "clubs" and that would meet my sales requirements. Then people lose interest and move on to other things. It's great that you got ALOT of things cheaply. One last big bang!!

    Happy WOYWW

  9. You know I admire your decision. There are a lot of SU demos out there and despite the loveliness of the product, I'm sure the market is watered down by such massive availability. There's no doubting the product quality, and look at all your goodies, what a great delivery, you'll have months of pleasure from that stack of paper alone!

  10. A good call - there is too much loveliness out there and we get lost - trying to rethink my new investments... Looks like a really great supply there and creativity and inspiration is always free! Thanks for letting us look in and peek at your desk... Sarah at 7...

  11. wonderful goodies there... thanks for a peek..

  12. Wow you got a lot of stuff for sure
