WOYWW - 95 - Can You See My New Toy??

 Its Wednesday and that means its time for
'Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday'
If you have missed this pop over to Julia's Blog Stamping Ground and join in the fun
But be warned its is addictive!
 On my desk this week its is even tidy by my standards
There is an A-Z of London that my friend picked me up for 1p
I have torn a page out to go on a card I am making
As normal my challenge book is at the side with the challenge I want to do
and on the other side of the desk is this...
 Did you spot it?
It an ATG gun - its all the fault of you WOYWWer's
But I must say I love it
I used to use tear tape from my local craft shop but they stopped getting it
so my DH thought as one of these was on my wish list I should get one
I did not need any more encouragement
Before I used it I watch  u tube and have had no problems at all
Used it all weekend and it really speeded up my card making
did I say I love it
This is why my desk is so clear
My DH works nights and as I work days we have little time together
So often before he goes to work I will print out some image
take my promarker box and sit on the sofa with him
and watch some mindless TV - then I go to my desk once his gone to work
I have just brought my last 5 promarkers so I now have the whole collection
Its taken time but its nice to have them all

Have a great 'hump' day

Virginia said...

I've never been tempted with the gun but might change my mind now LOL! Hope you have a great week - thanks for sharing your desk - I like the idea of the challenge book - saves me losing the bits of paper I write everything on LOL!

Helen said...

Glad you like your new toy!

jonaks said...

enjoy your new toy!

Spyder said...

oho I'm so Jealous, I don't think I'll ever have all the promakers, some run out so I have to get more of the same. Is your pastel blue suddenly darker?? mine is... boo! I'd love a glue tape gun, but they are pricey and think ofthe promarkers I could buy instead!
Have a Happy WOYWW! #51 ((Lyn))

Karen said...

Di said...

Yay, isn't that pink ATG gun just great! My Oh bought me one at Christmas (with some hinting natch) and I love it! Shaz in Oz mentioned the glue not sticking. I've kinda sussed that might be if she's loaded it and not got the tape nice and taut round the rollers. AND you have EVERY Pro Marker?!?! Sheesh!! Di x

Cauliflower Cupcake said...

Look at you, new ATC gun the full set of promarkers now! Lucky girl!
I do the same in the evenings I bring in images to cut out or punch. I don't mind being on my own in my craft room but the rest of the family moan a bit. when I do come through however, I end up sitting on the floor as no one wants to give up their seat for Mum!!
Great bargain too (1p)

Enjoy your new toy. I hear these are really nifty.

voodoo vixen said...

Aaaah, once you have moved from tape to the ATG you will never regret it!! Now you just need to make a stand for it as they are much easier to use from an upright position!! Annette #11

MaggieC said...

I am really jealous of all your promarkers - I only have 8. Don't you feel sorry for me? Never mind, I have loads of other things I love for colouring in, so I will wait for my collection (probably for ever, as my wish list is a long one). Hope you enjoy playing with your new toy.

Carolina Girl (Cely) said...

I think they are terrific and you will so enjoy it. Great idea of spending time with DH and doing something fun. I don't watch much TV, but if I have something else to keep me occupied then he feels like I'm spending some good time with him...and both of us are happy. Great idea!! Thanks!


I must have one of these! It can make everything go so much faster! Thanks for the look around!

Minxy said...

Hah ha you caved in and got one.. aren't they just the best :D
My OH works nights also so i do the same sitting on the sofa thing so know how you feel :p

Kezzy said...

I have almost collected the whole set of promarkers, its taken time for me also but a few here and there are certainly better on the purse lol. Oh i so have been thinging about getting the tape gun, it seems to be on most desks so it must be good. Loving your atlas for a pound cant wait to see what you do with it.

karen said...

Congrats on the ATG! It took a bit of getting used to at first because it is so big but wow it sure is easy to use! And yay on having all the ProMarkers! Nifty case you have for them too!
xoxo Karen
ps your home looks lovely!

Scrapcollectr said...

You're inspiring me to take my new pink toy out of its box also....such a peaceful desk to work at!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Nicky, as usual a pleasure to snoop round your desk. Love the new gun - not got one myself - maybe some day. And congratulations on finally having the complete collection of Promarkers - working on collecting them all too but a few more to go yet. I often do the same as you and take some stamped images to the sofa to keep himself company but I simply refuse to watch Coronation Street :) Have a good week. Elizabeth x #96

The Crafty Elf said...

Doesn't matter which angle it's still neat. I love my ATG too!!!

Carola Bartz said...

I also love to tear pages out of books and use them on cards etc. Maps are especially nice!

okienurse said...

Nice new toy you have there!! I tried one but didn't do so well with my hand! Congrats on obtaining your markers. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #83

Clare /aka/ Mummushka said...

Hi, As a 'Textilian', I think I just made that word up, I am not sure what that gun is for. But it looks like it would do some seriously good shooting, ;)
I must say I am partial to the wee doggie on your desk, I want IT! Thanks for sharing.

Ohhh Snap said...

I love my ATG too :D. Sounds like a lovely way to be crafty and spend time with your DH. Congratulations on getting the entire collection of promarkers! #128

Starla said...

I need to find some way to hold my copics (right now they are all in the containers they came in....pain to haul all of them somewhere else! (ok...i'm too lazy! LOL!)
Enjoy the new toy! Star 117

Tertia said...

Love that new toy, I have serious envy issues right now. I think I might be the only person on the planet that does not have one!

Joanne said...

Wow, speedy cards and a whole set of Promarkers. You will be busy.
