WOYWW Two-five-OH: the one where she shows what was in the box

Julia is our Queen and host of What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday each week.  In fact, for the previous 249 weeks, too.  I'm going to try to keep it short and sweet this week, just like Julia asks of us Deskers.

Some of you might remember two weeks ago when I showed this box,

even though some of you might have missed the rocking horse.

I can now reveal what was in the box.  I was one of the lucky recipients of all these Sculpey products in exchange for

a tutorial on my blog.  I know you don't have time to look now, but it's here when you have time to check it out.  It is also on my Tutorials page which is located directly underneath my header (and Bleubeard's adorable face).

And of course, that's why I was so late visiting you last this week.  Thanks as always for leaving your number.  You are much easier to find that way, unless your G + blog won't let me leave a comment.  Now let's visit Julia and do some snooping and learning.

Vicki Miller said...

Thanks for dropping by. I did buy lots of fabric and thread, but they were for a class I'm going to, I normally recycle fabric. I did love your tutorial, and the easter basket!

Eliza said...

Finally we can see what's in the box, excellent use of the products too with Easter coming up a winner. I love playing with sculpt and don't do enough of it.

Hugs like always
Eliza & Yoda

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Oh, I'm so glad you like the photos - I just thought you'd be interested! Btw, I loved the pics you posted about Wichita yesterday, again so different to what I'M used to! Love your friend Sally too, I want her cap, it's so jaunty! But as I have an enormous head (really!) it probably wouldn't fit anyway :-) I want to visit Solo's and have an omelette with you too!!
Congrats on the prize...the clay is so vibrant. You're going to have some fun with that :-)
Hugs, LLJ 41 xx

okienurse said...

Wow second person in a row(and the second on the list) playing with clay this week! Awesome I am going to take that as a sign I should try to make something with some I have! I thought the rocking horse was the block on your desk...rats I missed this one all together. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #45

jill said...

Thanks for dropping by earlier.
I'm off to look at your tutorial in a mo . Love the finished project.
Happy woyww Jill #34

Julia Dunnit said...

I saw the tutorial and loved it. The thing is...will you keep and use that sculpey, or just keep it? I'm not great at onward use age of demo products I'm ashamed to say!

glitterandglue said...

Coo - what a gift. Well done for your hard work. The end result is great. Have read your tutorial - lovely and clear. Thank you. Never done this sort of work - but I'm sure it must be fun to see your design come to life.
Thanks for already visiting - I rather imagine Mabel will indeed be thrilled when I stop sticking her with pins!! But she is doing a great, helpful task!!! Amazing - she just stands there and takes it all - even when, as yesterday, I undressed her, took everything apart, then put it all together differently simply with pins!
Have a great week.

My name is Cindy said...

Wonderful amounts of stash, although I won't check out your tutorial - I really do not need another addiction! Have a happy Wednesday. Cindy #57

Nelle said...

My first 2 visits have both been clay works. Is this a trend I see forming.. I love the bright colours, I will come back and follow your link once I have done my blog hop.

House of Bears said...

Lucky you. Will we be seeing a sculpey rocking horse soon? Or maybe a sculpey bear ;)

BJ said...

Super product and great tutorial, have just been through it despite never really wanting to use clay stuff, what with the baking and all, too much like cooking for me LOL. BJ#62

Jackie said...

This product is new to me so I will have to look at your tutorial ! Hope your weather is better and you can spend more time in your craft room

Craftymoose Crafts said...

I'm not a desker, but I thought it was interesting that you Sculpey box was different than mine. Same contents,just a different box. That's why I could not guess (to myself) what was in it!

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

I love the way you wove the Easter basket with Sculpey. The details like the grass and egg decorating look so much fun too. Blessings!

see you there! said...

Read the tutorial, fun to see all the supplies that were in the box. Hopefully we will see more clay work from you in the future.

Hammers said...

April Story said...

Cute easter basket. I imagine you could create all kinds of cute things with your clay. April #18

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Enjoy your clay - I have to admit I have NEVER been tempted by Sculpy/Fimo in any way so no temptation to rush out and but a job lot of the stuff.....

and PS I did reply in the affirmative to your emailed question - is the new email working? Did you get it??


Happy WOYWW!

Angela Radford said...

So pleased you let us know what was in the box. I saw it last week and being nosey, I had to find out what was in it. Thank you for visiting me earlier.
I absolutely adore your cat, he's lovely.
Happy crafting, Angela #33

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Elizabeth, and ear skritches to Bleubeard. What a glorious selection of stuff! Love all the Sculpey colours. I have a drawer full of Fimo that comes out now and again when the mood strikes. The plan is to have the box and form finished by mid July-no pressure, lol. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #40

Princess Judy Palmer said...

The big reveal--dunt dunt duh!!! (that's rising action music in case you didn't recognize it). I had to chuckle that it was clay! Our inner child never gets tired of clay. I like your fun Easter scene made with clay. Very Spiffy! Judy #89

sandysewin said...

Have fun with your polymer clay goodies. I like your Easter basket, very cute. :-)

Thank you for stopping by my blog and for the nice comments about my kaleidoscope cane.

Happy Woyww,

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Elizabeth, congrats on the Sculpey collect and have loads of fun with it and a great week Cheers RobynO#38

Sandy said...

So we see whats in the box yay... looking forward to your use of it as I have never used sculpey and would not know where to start..
Thanks for the visit to my blog..
Sandy :)

Carol said...

Do you bake your Sculpey projects in your regular oven or do you have a dedicated oven for it ?

VonnyK said...

Ooh, what a lucky thing you are. The colours in that sculpy are fabulous. Makes me want to get my clay out now :) Love your Easter project.
Have a great week,
Von #22

peggy apl said...

My goodness, Elizabeth, what fun to get a box of Sculpey materials in exchange for a tutorial. That is a cute project you made! The colors of the eggs are wonderful!

Nikki Davey said...

Always nice to receive parcels in the mail. When I organise myself I will write about my latest mail delivery.

I loved the tutorial too - sculpey & fimo have always been a bit 'scary' for me. but now I am going to have a go.

Cheers from West Aus. xx
Nikki D

You know you can always comment about my blog under my comment on yours ;-) Hate Google + but I don't want to lose the comments already there... dilemma.

BJ said...

Trapunto sewing well never heard of the word before but have used the technique! Yes I hate cooking and I have never got a good photo printed at home. You need to buy the right paper to start with, it uses loads of expensive ink too, so I have always used an online company far less stressful. Choose your prints, upload them and let them do the hard work! BJ

Corrine at sparkledaysstudio.com said...

That was a wonderful box of goodies and your Easter project got me in the mood, even if the darn weather isn't.xox

Lindart said...

Hi Elizabeth! Thanks for visiting my blog! You are welcome to come and play with my supplies anytime! You certainly did get a big box of fun there! How did you like working with sculpey? Lindart (& Inky says "Hi" to Bluebeard!) #81

butlersabroad said...

Ooh, that's a boat load of nice goodies in that box! I like your canvas, Spring seems so close, but I don't think Winter is actually done with us yet!

Hugs

Shoshi said...

Nice to see what was in the box at last, Elizabeth! How exciting! And I did spot the dinky little rocking horse!

Sorry not to be part of WOYWW this week - I thought I'd visit a few desks, but haven't been well enough to do anything - I did try yesterday, only to find that my sewing machine is not working after a long period of inactivity so it's now in for repairs. I've got such plans for my teabags!

Have a great week.
Shoshi

Neet said...

I now have a very severe case of PCE brought on by the sight of your parcel now it is undone. Oh dear, I need to clear a space in my room and play.
Hugs, Neet 26 (PCE - polymer clay envy)
Love to you and Bleubeard xx

Gita said...

Always nice to get packages in the mail. So fun. I'll definitely wave hi from OK. :-) Oh, and I don't plan on doing everyday PL pages like some. Only for trips. I've given up on "everyday" stuff. Brigita #75

MaggieC said...

What a lot of lovely goodies you won. You are going to have a whale of a time playing with those, just as I am going to have a whale of a time playing with all my lovely new Clarity stash. I will put my photos up next Wednesday for everyone to see. Had a great day at the show, meeting old and new friends. xx Maggie

Nan G said...
