What's on my workdesk Wednesday 163? Stash!

This picture above was my travelling kit (even I was impressed with how little I took)  for our 10 day holiday to Knysna and Bedford.  Places most of you will never have heard of if you don't live in South Africa.  Knysna is where my hubby goes to ride a mountain bike race about a 6 hour drive from Cape Town where we live and then on to Bedford which is a further 6 hour drive to my Brother in Law's farm up in the mountains.

On route from Knysna to Bedford, we passed Jeffrey's Bay where a friend of mine (who happens to have the same surname - flook I promise you) Carina Basson owns the most amaizing scrapbook store called The Scrapbook Studio where my dearest hubby splashed out and bought me the stash in the photo below.  So then I was really kitted out to create while on the farm! 
Needless to say, I did a lot of creating while I was there and now that I am back home I have just unpacked it all over my desk and need to put it all away so I can find my pink mat underneath again to be able to craft some more!

Now that you have seen my desk, I am off to see if I can find your desk over at Julia's place called Stamping Ground where even though she is not there at the moment, our world wide desk snoop continues!

Thanks for the visit



  1. Wow, what a fab hubby to treat you to all that little lot! Glad you had fun playing with it :D
    I had to look Knysna up on Google Maps - I'm not a stalker, honest! But I do love to know where places are and Googla maps is awesome for that. It's so interesting!

  2. Spoilt! All my favourite goodies in one picture. I miss SA whenever I read about your travels. Love Knysna, never been to Bedford. Enjoy creating wonderful art with your goodies.

  3. Sounds like you had a fabulous time and all those extra goodies, you are lucky.
    Have a great week.

  4. Wow, Bella, what a fabby lot of stash, and what a fabby hubby to buy it for you! So lovely that your namesake had all that you needed. I love your travelling bag. Not sure I could manage any creating like that while going away - I'd find it far too hard to choose what to take! I'd be bound to leave something vital behind... Glad you had such a nice time away.

    Thanks for visiting - great that Dylusions are coming to SA soon! You'll have such fun.

    Happy WOYWW,

  8. WOW - you lucked out there, hun! How nice of hubby. Mind you, if the purpose of your trip was his bike race, it probably made him feel a bit better about you having to come along! LOL.

    Make sure you show us what you made with it!

    Thanks for stopping by....

  9. Hi Bella thanks for popping to see me. Hope you are having fun with all your goodies. There is a Bedford in England so that name was familiar! There is a link on my blog a few posts back if you want to make the light box WOYWW Hugs from Helen 18

  10. Bella, I love learning new things about South Africa. I googled Knysna and oohhed and ahhhed over the photos. I saw they have an Elephant park and that is my favorite animal (I have little statues I have collected). I must come to South Africa one day. I am happy to hear you had such a lengthy get away at such nice places.

    I like your travel case. I am awful when I try to travel I usually bring too much.

    And if I didn't say it many times before, I am saying it now, your husband is wonderful. It's so nice to see such support of your creative endeavors. He must see how talented you are.

    Thanks for stopping by my desk and I will see you next week.

    Your namesake
