WOYWW 91 - the other upside down one...

Not literally this time, I hasten to add.  The upside down-ness refers to the state my new room is in as it's taking a wee while to sort out properly.  When we moved in here, everything was hurriedly dumped in the old craft room in some vague sense of order, but I never quite got around to sorting out what I wanted where and re-labelling things.  Not so this time.  This time I am going to sort the whole caboodle out.  So at the moment, my space looks like this:


I'm no longer looking out of a window, which actually makes life easier for having things on my desk.  My drawer units are all in easy reach - I just have to spin round on my chair for all my stamps and embellies etc.


the other side of the drawer units (which will eventually be on castors so we can move them when we need to) is the office desk with the PC on.  And Mr B sat there working away marking books etc.  He's why I'm late today - I wasn't able to set up a scheduled post on there last night!  


Further away shot of my corner wall.


Ah yes - it's Grandma B's birthday tomorrow, so Lil Miss B and I made cards last night.  Here's hers - made with some Dufex delight (sic) that Mr B bought her so she could have her "own" craft stuff and feel independent.  LOL. 


And here's my effort for Ma B - I would like to thank the Great Miss Dunnit for the inspiration on this - regular WOYWWers will remember her aqua coloured effort of this.  I loved it so much, I paid a visit to Shopkeeper Gal and got the same stamp, and have had a go at it myself.  I love it - such a simple idea, yet so very very effective and attractive.


As I'm at work at the moment, I'll come back on here later and put up the info about which stamps, inks etc I used.

In the meantime, enjoy your WOYWW bloghop - full deets are HERE for those in the dark about it!  Catch you around!

Those drawers are fantastic- I don't suppose you could let me know where you got them? I think they are EXACTLY what my daughter- in -law is looking for for hers & her childrens crafting stuff. TFS, Shaz #125

Sam said...

Oooo. Wouldn't I like to take a peek in those drawers! Why is it that other people's desks look more interesting than yours?

Happy Sorting!

Ooh I never saw your drawers so well revealed! Aren't they great. I don't envy you the move or the fact that you've said publicly that you'll be sorting and labelling...foolish moves! The stamp by the way, is by Magneta...and what a great take on the card idea.
