WOYWW 116 - DUDE! Where's my Craft Room????

Well, it's happened.

THESE were the photos I took yesterday morning, meaning to use them for today's WOYWW.  Before you say it, I know the calendar still says April.





However, when I got in from work last night, THIS was what greeted me. 



The boxing fairy has been at work in my absence.  Yes, he does also do the ironing, and cooks, and no you can't have him.

I was half expecting it, having been warned that the room was being moved around to accommodate the contents of the attic (which haven't yet made it downstairs) but even so!  And as you can see, my desk has boxes on it.  Again.


For anyone new to the phenomenon that is WOYWW - visit Julia and find out more!  Be prepared for a delve into the murky world of the crafter's desk...... 


Oh, and as promised - the other baby Alpaca, the newest one.  The middle Alpaca of the three is the oldest baby born this year, and the one on the left is the littlest one's Mum....


 

Next week - new house!  Can't promise I'll get round any desks - the broadband isn't being connected until the 8th September!! ULP!!!!


Edited to add - RosA has asked what's in my drawer units, so I've replied to her with the following.... "The plastic drawer units house my everything!  About 13 of them hold my rubber stamps, categorised.  Then the others hold all sorts - Card blanks and envelopes/inserts, one drawer for adhesives, one each for dye and pigment ink, colouring mediums, theres a drawer for my sizzix dies, one for my stencils & templates, 3 or 4 are sheets of card, in colour groups, theres 3D decoupage, one for peeloffs.... you get the general idea!"

Darling Boxing Fairy (aka Mr B) has cling wrapped all 60 drawers so that they don't need to be boxed up - just lifted out of their units, the units put on the van, and the drawers transported separately.....

WOW! What have you got in all those plastic shelving thingys? (I'm trying to ignore all the boxes, eeek!) Those alpacas are just the cutest!!

Those plastic drawers are just what I need. I could sure use them about now. My new shelves I bought aren't up to the task, as you so politely pointed out (grin).

WOW I think it is awesome that you have a boxing fairy in residence. I usually end up paying cause mine tells me that is what we are suppose to do! Those baby alpacas are so sweet! I wish we could have critters but my husband says no even when we lived in the country. Hope the move goes well and you get your crafting space back soon. Vickie

Tertia said...

Your shelving units are fab! Love drawers that close and leaves no dust on anything when mr Mojo goes AWOL.
The box fairy is definately a keeper!
Happy WOYWW

What genius is that to cover the drawers with clingfilm to ensure the contents stay put?? Fantastic! I once went to a student party where the host (male) went dressed in nothing but LOTS of cling film - but that's another story :) xxxx

Jona Panesa said...

loved your space. aren't you lucky with your box fairy. you've got someone to clean up the mess!

Julia Dunnit said...

Just to point out that I've tried to coax Mr B away...and he doesn;t want to, so we just admire from afar,.....
Meanwhile, good luck with the move..I'm not sure I ever saw the drawers before - Oh you've got more stuff than me! Tra La, that makes me happy!!

So love your storage ...feel for you with so many boxes around and on your desk. Your Alpaca's are so cute.

S said...

Oh, looks at all those drawers - tempting enough to make me ignore the boxes!

Doone said...

this is an epic (you are warned)

someone once told me most people get what they deserve (Karma) when they choose a partner/spouse

So you get a perfect boxing up moving, ironing, cooking man of a man, so I know you obviously are (despite your madness and tendency to choke when partaking in stone spitting competitions) a perfect kind of woman to deserve such a perfect kind of man,

guess what i get?

someone who delights in making me swear when on camera, distracts me whilst giving instruction, and interrupts with banal requests whilst I wind up a tutorial...

what does this say about me???

Elizabeth said...

Cling wrapped drawers - sheer genius. Don't those alpacas have the most elegant looks - love their gorgeous little faces. Hope the rest of the packing goes smoothly. Elizabeth x #60

Twiglet said...

Oh so cute baby alpaca. Good luck with the move.

The Crafty Elf said...

Good Luck with the move and thanks for sharing the pics of the Alpacas - so darn cute. Smart idea with the wrapping! You've got some super storage drawers and you are the envy of many!
