WOYWW 153

Firstly, many thanks for all those who take the time to visit and leave comments - it is so much appreciated. I actually managed to get round everyone last week - not sure that I'll manage that this time - we'll see!

I had a day of crafting yesterday and this is the state of my workspace this morning. Those of you who visit regularly know that I like to tidy away between sessions, but so far today I haven't.

You might wonder why I'm showing pictures of my workspace - well it's for WOYWW 153 - if you don't know what I'm on about, click on the link to Julia's blog and join in the fun.

So here is the view to the left of where I sit - boxes that need to be sorted and put away, distress inks, cards I made yesterday (plenty of blogging beneath this if you're interested):


In front of me - you can just see the ATC I made last night for the Stampotique challenge etc:


To the right of me - mainly Christmas stuff - I sorted a box on Monday and made up lots of decoupaged toppers - not sure whether I will make them into cards yet or put them back into the box! Up the corner under the windowsill are cards waiting for inserts and to be bagged.


I won't be doing so much crafting today because I'm going over to see mum and then a bit of essential shopping - which includes a visit to WHS to get Craft Stamper.

  24. Look at all those markers sorted nicely in the back! I'm finding that sorting them by color family would really help things out. You're a smart cookie for already doing so. Great visit to your desk today. You've been up to lots of great things. The Christmas toppers made me laugh, I do that sometimes, get a bunch of something together for a holiday and then when that holiday rolls around, I don't use it. Hey, but it is there for when you do get around to using it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow, what a lot of things you've been making - it all looks so organised and busy, I love it.
    Thanks for stopping by my desk and have a great week

  44. hiya Hazel...can't believe you managed to get around to all of them..wow...you're amazing....I only seem to get to about 50 or 60 ...so this time I began at the bottom of the list...mostly because they get the fewest visitors... as people give up by about half way through the list....

    ReplyDelete
  45. You have a very busy desk, but very organised (wish I could be the same).
    I love your bee ATC, I scrolled down to have a closer look, its beautiful.
    I will have to have a look for that stamp.

  50. You've got such a lot going on Hazel...but it all looks organised. I really enjoyed taking a peek thanks.
    It took me longer than I thought, so seeing you're cuppa has made me think it's time for a much needed teabreak! ;D
    Happy WOYWW for me! Have fun....

  51. Now there is a desk that shows somebody is seriously productive! I don't think I've turned out that much stuff in all the years I've been paper crafting combined! Maybe you're just SuperWoman? And I'm not Super-lazy-Woman? ;)
    Anyways, thanks for stopping by my messy space, #62~Deeyll

    ReplyDelete
  52. It looks like you are firing on all 6 cylinders and making heaps. I think you are a container person like me that likes things stored in the correct place.

    Thanks for visiting me and congrats on getting around all the desks last week. I think I have set the challenge of this for some.

    Oh and I love your decopage, I am also a decopage lover.
