WOYWW 167 - Debut Video!

I am keeping my fingers crossed I can do this.  I promised to reveal the surprise that was hidden in the pretty envelopes that were on my chair last week.  A photo just wouldn't have done it justice so I decided to have a go at making a teeny tiny video even though I have no idea how to put it on my blog!

Drum Roll Please..........


Thank you to my cameraman Callum.  I think he needed a tripod and I needed a script writer or at least the skills to edit out the ummmms!

Now for the easy bit what is on my desk today?

From this angle you can see the My Minds Eye - The Sweetest Thing papers and embellishments I treated myself to on Saturday.  How could I resist :-)  Another zentangle pattern in the making and the set from my debut video.

On the other side of the film set is my Tag Tuesday tag taking shape - last weeks tag is propped up at the back - if you want to take a closer look then go to my previous post where I did a little how to.  I had a lovely time making this miniature penny arcade game from my childhood.  Just looking at my empty popcorn packets - I wish I had one of those Star Trek machines to make the popcorn to go in them!

That's it from me except to say if you don't know what WOYWW is then follow this link to some desk hopping fun and if you do know what WOYWW is then thank you for popping by - have a great week.


  1. Oh wow Helen, those cards are really fun!! I love the boxes exploding from them! Any chance of a tutorial?

    Your desk looks so busy and pretty this week! Fabulous papers, and lovely colours.

    Happy WOYWW,

  10. Great video! Love the popping boxes - do they have an elastic band inside? happy woyww jenx 60

  11. How clever are those boxes Helen, I certainly didn’t expect them to pop out of the envelopes and your video turned out just fine.

    Loving the new papers and embellishments too. I think that MME are just about me favourite when it comes down to choosing papers.

    Happy Crafting!

  12. Love those boxes popping out of the envelope. Would like to know how you made those. #22

  13. Well done you for a fab video - how brave are you???

  20. Hi Helen. Thanks for visiting my blog. Well done on the video. I love the surprise boxes. What fun! If enough of us ask, will you post a video, or at least a tutorial on how they are made? Please? You have some beautiful papers there on your desk. Have fun deciding how to use them. Kate x #70

  21. Well I'd never ever have guessed that...they are wonderful, what a fab surprise! How clever you are. And Callum, of course. Your new MME stuff is wonder you had to!

  22. Those surprise cards are certainly surprising! How did you do it?? Very cool. And a lovely happy workspace to boot!

  23. OMG! I love the surprize cards!! I need a tutorial on those! MY granddaughters would love them. I love MME paper and have bought just about every 6"x6" paper pack they have made. The Lost and Found line is the best!! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #38

  24. You have definitely got to do a little tutorial on that ---- cue a second video per chance?! They are fantastic! As usual lots of lovely things for me to ogle on your desk - those MME papers are scrummy! Happy WOYWW! Victoria no.55

  25. Happy WOYWW

    I am unable to see the video :( but maybe it's as my watching on my iPad, it certainly sounds exciting.

    Lovely bright desk with plenty to look at. TFS

  31. What is it about popcorn that is so suggestive? You see a container or someone mentions it or.. oh my! You SMELL it, you have to have it. The My Mind's Eye papers look bright and fun. Have fun creating!

  32. Love the video and those boxes popping out of the envelopes are just fantastic!
    The new papers are yummy, I would have bought them too.
    Happy b elated WOYWW!

  33. Thanks for your visit, Helen, and I look forward to seeing a tutorial on the exploding boxes! That's such a fun project!!

    As for the mp3s, I've just commented on Kate's blog (number 69 on this week's WOYWW) telling her how to do it, so hop over and have a look! If you want to email me for further info, please do - you've got my addy I think, otherwise it's in the RH sidebar on my blog.

    I've recently converted a whole lot of reel-to-reel tapes my dad made of us when we were kids - chattering and singing and all sorts, and also a recording of my mum reading Beatrix Potter to us! These things are so precious. I've also got a very small snippet of my grandmother's voice which is lovely to have.

    Been extremely busy this p.m. having a major clear-out in my ARTHaven and I can't believe how different it looks now! I'm making good progress with it. Still got a lot to do though.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
    Shoshi #10

  34. Hello!

    You made a great video - what a fun surprise! Will you be posting a tutorial for the folding box in a card? I hope so! Your workdesk is filled with lovely things - the patterned papers are beautiful! Wishing you a happy weekend!
