WOYWW 242 In Washi Heaven

Well I see the leader of the pack, Julia Dunnit , has already set up the link for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.  That means it is time to PLAY!  Want to join this pack of weekly desk hoppers?  Just click on Julia's name, the other link will take you to the explanation of this phenomenon.
This week Betsy is sporting a clean mat that was proudly displayed yesterday, as you can see it is still clean but things are creeping back to the center (actually I dropped the Washi tape box there when I got home from Costco (( a big box store here in the US)).  Around the edges, of said box, is my nasty cleaning rag that hasn't made it to the hamper yet, the tip of my red monthly planner, a Christmas card that needs to get posted (probably Thursday) My water bottle, standard  containers of necessary junk  err tools and to the right of the box are some stamps that I used to make the card and a lone pair of scissors.  The pink page is the beginnings of my TDL page, with my extra eyes laying on it. 

The Washi tape box!  I saw this at Costco this afternoon for $20.00!  It has 20 rolls of tape and a clever dispenser/storage carrousel.

 I have been wanting to try some but they are a little pricy in the craft stores, and I can never decide which ones I'd like, most are a little too loud/bold for what I would want them for, so I usually just walk away.  Sorry about the lighting in this photo is a little dark, but this is the front of the box.  It has ten colors, a narrow and a wider one for each color, but the patterns are all different.

Here is the carousal with the tapes in it, the dispenser only holds eight of the colors but the handle is made to store the others.  So what do ya think?  Pretty cool huh?  Now how do you use Washi tape? LOL only kidding, just checking to see if you were still reading.

Okay this is longer than our leader likes (but I just HAD to share Julia, honest!) so I'll stop here, get linked up and be off to see what's on everybody else's desk this week

  1. OMGOSH!! If I only lived within a 1000 miles of a Costco, I'd be there in a heartbeat. What a DEAL. Not only am I in awe, I'm in washi envy. Crying in my coffee here. Happy WOYWW from #1.

  2. Ditto on Elizabeth's remark (insert tea for coffee though :D)..

    Krisha def. loving the washi...

    and you know all your reasons for not buying, have been mine up til now.. but sadly we dont even 100% know what Costco is.. though think there may be one in Oz.? not sure?

    ah enjoy!! happy WOYWW Shaz in Oz.x #7

  3. Good heavens! That is a fab price for all that tape! And a storage thing to boot! Enjoy it! #25

  4. Great price for all that fab washi tape! with carousel... wow!! Have a great time using it all. Thanks for visiting already. Helen 23

  5. Ohemgee, I want that tape dispenser storage thingy! We have Costco here - few and far between..but I never hear of people finding things like this! It's wonderful and what a nice gift for yourself! Meanwhile your desk looks great..the new mat is rather a lovely colour too, easy on the eye when working huh.

  6. Oh my goodness! What a fabulous bargain! I am very jealous!

    Thanks for sharing.

  7. Oooh, I am as green as that washi tape with jealous. Lovely addition to any craft room. Enjoy it! Susanne #66

  8. What a fab item, that tape dispenser! Not bought any Washi tape (yet!), keep seeing so amny people using it though. Yes, the fish really does love cucumber- you can drop slices in the tank and when they float, he'll come up to the surface & float with it! I'll try to get him in a photo shoot, lol. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #33 xx

  9. What a gonga deal on the washi tape! And We R Memory Keepers has good quality tape--with fun patterns. I use washi tape to decorate the backs of the envelopes I mail. I used to use stickers but have been into the tape lately. I also decorate the insides of cards with it. I don't tend to use it on the front much.... but only because I don't think of it. Have fun playing with it.

  10. What a buy! I live about 40 miles from a Costco but I haven't gotten into the Washi Tape craze (yet). And our local scrapbook store (10 miles) carries this, too. Oh well. Your desk is pretty tidy (until you start playing with your tape, I bet)! Thanks for visiting and Happy WOYWW!

  12. Oh my - what a find. Must ask my daughter if she will go see what Costco here has got - she has a card.... Her local store frequently has some real good craft bargains.
    Thanks for visiting earlier, Krisha - glad you like the felting - and the sound of the dinner!! It was fun, hard work, frustrating, but thoroughly enjoyed by all the guests!
    Have a great week.

    Thanks for dropping by earlier.

  16. Krisha - that is AMAZING. I'll be off to Costco this week!!!! I have been buying Washi tape on a limited basis over the past 2-3 years - so I'm getting a little stash, and just used my first bit last week on a MojoMonday card.
    Have fun with it!

  17. Ha ha loved your post...great bargain....enjoy your wash!

  18. That is a fabulous find. Now I wonder if they have them at SAMs.
    Still no sign of my being able to meet up, guess we had better leave that for another year.

  21. Oh no! I love that tape dispenser and the closest Costco is in Dallas! I will have to email my brother to go get me one. That is awesome. Love the nice neat desk and clean mat too. Thanks for stopping by for a visit earlier. Little late getting around this week but hey it is better then never making it to the party! Hope you have a crafty week! Vickie aka Okienurse #53
