WOYWW time again! #63

Wow - the week has flown by fast! It's WOYWW again, and for those who don't know, who may have just fallen over my blog by complete accident, visit Ms Dunnit's page here to find out all about it and begin your blog-hop.

My desk this week is starting to look normal at last. That is to say, it has actually got some work going on. The untidiness is because I spent part of yesterday evening doing the latest CJ which will be posted today (and part of the evening doing Pilates, but that's a whole other story!) and I haven't had time to tidy up yet. Eagle eyed folks will notice that the spice rack is now full of EPs at last.




I said last week that I would start putting on pics of the rest of the craft room - here's a view from the door looking along the row of storage to the desk. See, told it was "compact" in there! Before I get the inevitable questions - the storage drawers came from a supermarket in France about 5 years ago, the drawers are not quite 12 x 12, which is an annoyance but I can live with that, and no, I don't where you can get them over here.



Going back to the CJ I referred to - Tash's (Chicken Licken's) CJ landed in my lap last month and was due for posting... um.... Monday. Oops. However, I thought I'd do it last night and when I sat down the mojo just flowed for the first time in ages. The stampe she sent round was a heart - I didn't want to do another play on words, so just did what I felt looked good (Thank you Craft Barn for the inspiration a couple-a-years ago). I don't know who the heart is by, but the quote is by Third Coast, I think, as is Be Odd (I lurve that stamp, so ME!) and the starburst is .... darn it, can't remember.... oh well. Inks used were Distress Inks in Milled Lavender, wotsit Denim and Soot Black, and Versafine, as well as a wee skim of silver to edge the card, though you can't see it in the pics. Enjoy!

Each page was an envelope made out of a page of a book, with a small card inside:


The back of my card:

Right-o - I'm off for a bit of a blog hop over the course of the next week! Catch you all again soon!

Great space, very compact, but hey if it does what is say on the tin and works then size really doesn't matter.

But with super storage you don't need a huge room, right! Looks great and the light in there is pretty good too..seems like your mojo is happy in there! I sincerely hope that parcel is full of goodies for you and not about to be posted by you! Love the envelope and card, and it's a great idea.

Wow, the storage row is very impressive!

vix24 said...

Ooh lovely storage...I need much more than I already have!

Just following up a comment you left on my blog, about distance learning. Not working I had it a bit easier time wise but a tip a friend gave to me is try and study in 45 minute bursts because you're unlikely to take anything in after that, try and work out what you're going to do on a given day and don't panic if you don't stick to it.

Also I found my crafting mojo hit right when an assignment was due, without fail. If I had time I did a bit to satisfy the urge but otherwise I kept is as something to look forward to when the work was done.

Hope that helps and enjoy it...that's the main thing!

Brilliant storage! :) Love it.

Carolynne said...

I just love your storage, I am sooooo jealous.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Even if these containers aren't quite 12" square, they are super storage. And they are tall, which is a bonus. Sorry I'm late, but I have contracted a computer virus. It's still not fixed, but I had to make sure I wasn't infecting anyone.

Gez said...

Hi Morti sorry I'm late calling too.. Mr Blogger playing up! Your workspace looks lovely. I do love the look of your clear alphabet stamps. Your shelves look FAB & sooo useful. I see we have the same big blue guillotene.. I dread the cutter going blunt in case I can't find a replacement! Your CJ pages are looking beautiful. What a great sentiment. Thanks for your lovely blog comments.xx Hope you get to try out the crackle paints soon, they are great fun to work with. :) You have a lovely blog. Your creations are inspiring. So sorry to hear your Dad passed away. I lost my Mum 2 yrs ago & it's still very raw. You'll never believe I have a lovely Mr B too!!!
Hope you have a lovely Sunday. Hugs, Gez.xx
