WOYWW 139

It's time for another peep at everyone's workspace hosted by the wonderful Julia - WOYWW 139.

The eagle-eyed among you will perhaps note that it's still Tuesday evening when I'm preparing this post, so, yes, the photos has been taken this evening rather than Wednesday. John has appointments up at Guy's tomorrow, so there'll be no time to do anything like this before we go. When we get back we've got to clear some stuff from this room because someone is coming at 8:00 am Thursday morning to fit a new carpet - yes, 8:00am!!

Anyway, Julia has already started the post for WOYWW 139, so it would be rude not to join in early, wouldn't it?!

I've done no crafting since the weekend, so no blogging. I decided that I needed to spend some time doing some other essential things - one of those being that I desperately need to sort out my computer - I have so much stuff on it and some that has accumulated and not been sorted into folders ... too busy crafting, I suppose ... but it's got to the stage where it's going to be worth spending time sorting it rather than be in a muddle. I have memory sticks, external hard drive, online storage in a few places ... I need to streamline this. I'm still working on it.

I needed a break yesterday, so I caught the bus over to the Nugent Retail Park in Orpington and went to Hobbycraft for a tootle around. So, in the absence of any actual crafting atm, here are the goodies I got, including some more little boxes to further sort my craft stuff - yes, that's the next job to be done after the computer is sorted. So I'm not sure whether I'll actually be able to get much crafting done this week. However, you can just about see that I've stamped and coloured the new Crafter's companion 'a little kiss' stamp (just had to have a little crafty play) - this is going to be for a card for a few challenges, so I'm hoping I'll be able to fit that in.

Enough of my waffle. Here are my photos:



I was glad that I got round to quite a few WOYWWers last week, but apologise that I didn't get round to everyone - perhaps I'll do better this week! I'll try! Thank you for everyone who left comments for me - much appreciated.

  19. LOL! So there with you on the computer-chaos. I need to spend some serious time sorting photos in iPhoto and copying them on to discs. DH does a semi regular backup, but I'm not sure that that is good enough. Lovely stash too, esp. those dotty flowers. Yum Yum

    And YAY! to comments in a new window so I can say HI!

  24. Having problems with my computer as well - well the modem I think as it keeps freezing on me. Still a visit to a craft shop and a bit of a spend can always cheer me up.

  31. Me too Hazel, have this very day booked an appointment with DD to help me sort out a few things on the computer and generally tidy stuff up...starting to make my teeth itch! Hope your visit to Guy's isn't an exhausting round of waiting.

  32. The computer does get so clogged up with stuff, good luck sorting it all out!

    I'm attempting to get around everyone's posts this week (a new one for me!) I don't usually have time to get round everyone.
    But I haven't done my own post yet - it'll have to wait til I get home from work this evening.

  33. Sweet stash there Hazel!

    I have a similar problem with my PC - Mr B keeps telling me to tidy up my desktop as it's covered in random files - might get round to it one day!

    Thanks for stopping by...

  36. I too have been working through the saved file piles. Some days I feel organized, others I forget what I saved where. Sometimes I loose it because I let go of the file into the wrong folder....Thanks for sharing that, I am glad I am not alone.
    Retail therapy is good, love all your inspiration just waiting for you.

  47. Hazel,

    WOW you girls here at WOYWW are something else!!!! This is my first time to join in & what fun!

    I can certainly attest to the virtues of sorting & cleaning up the computer. I too have way too much stuff scattered. It sure doesn't take long to mess it up but, seems to take forever to clean it up. Thanks for stopping by to visit me at my first WOYWW & good luck with the carpet!

  51. Hi there Hazel - ah can so relate to not having time to do things am tearing my hair out a little how an empty-ish week can so fill up with so many extra things not planned and so not enough time to do calligraphy which must finish or it will drive me batty! oh and your goodies do look so lovely! have fun!
    Also I had the two sheets of digi stamps today form Audrey so that was lovely - she was slow each time but did get there in the end - but not time t play - but they are VERY lovely! thanks so much for popping over, and for sharing. Happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz. x #21
