It's Wednesday again (only just, as I'm preparing this a little after midnight ready to link later) and that means it's time to have a peep at crafting workspaces around the world, thanks to Julia - why not click on the link for WOYWW 154 and find out what it's all about (as if there's anyone left who doesn't know) and join in the fun.

For the past few days I've been having a sort out of my craft stuff - always seem to be doing that, probably because I like to have everything in its right place and boxes labelled etc.

I'm on the final hurdle, so just a few boxes on my workdesk that now need attention.

To the left of me are ATCs, inchies, twinchies etc that I've received in swaps, You can see that there are a couple of PM folders ready to house these (I've already got quite a few of these full).

On the other side of where I sit you can see a box with toppers etc - some that I put together ages ago and still haven't used - the box needs sorting and perhaps I'll start to use some of the contents. At the back you can see the Christmas decoupaged pieces that were there last week, except now they are housed in a container - the idea is that if I leave them there I'll start to use some of them - hopefully!

Just realised that you can see the CDrom poking out of the side of my computer - since upgrading to windows 7 I can't get the scanner to work with my network printer, so I tried installing again, only to find that it still doesn't work - have now found drivers online for windows 7 and am in process of downloading (taking ages even though I have fast broadband) - hoping it will work then because I need to scan a photo for a card I've been commissioned to make.

I managed to get round everyone last week, but doubt I'll do that this week, but I'll do my best. I'll be out later today - meeting a friend to go and see The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - we should have gone two or three weeks ago, but had to postpone, so hope we'll actually get there today.


  1. What an organised space! You put me to shame.

    Happy WOYWW

  2. Sounds as if you know what you are talking about with the computer. Thankfully I have another half who does it for me.
    Thanks for showing us your organised craft space, so much to see but so tidy too.
    Hugs, Neet #11 xx

  3. I need to take organizing lessons from you! #100

  4. Wow so organised ... If only I kept my stuff so neat!

  5. Very organised, Hazel, but knowing your output I'm not a bit surprised that you are, I imagine you need to be. You're the second person to mention The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel today ... first the book and now the film ... hope you enjoy it and do let us know what you thought of it. Elizabeth x #42

  6. So organised, hope you get to see the film. Take care & enjoy WOYWW, working my way through the list as usual! Zo xx 66

  7. That is so organised. My exact opposite!

  8. Lovely space - thanks for sharing.

  9. You are so organised Brenda, I would love to be more like that.. love your creative desk.. Hugs May x x x#26

  10. Can't believe how organised you are! I'm still stuck on XP because my computer at home is old and I have a feeling it'll be more trouble then it's worth!

  11. Well I'm late, soi hope you got the cinema, and that it was as good as it seems! Very impressed by your computer knowledge, and I'm perfectly sure that with the decoupage pieces in the box, you'll use them alright, you won't allow yourself not to!

  12. You would need to come round and organise my workspace I'm thinking - I'm supposed to be making my niece's wedding invites, but need to do a major tidy up first!!

  13. Me again - I've had trouble with Windows 7 too - now my 'wireless' printer won't work wirelessly anymore and neither will my 'Easycross' cross stitch programme - let me know how you get on?

  14. Hi Hazel, gosh you so look like one of my neighbours, it's amazing. Anyway thought I'd just say I've seen some of your cards in various challenges and love your blog so I've become your latest follower.

  15. I need to come and mess up your space, it is too neat and tidy, you need to make a mess girl. LOL
    Good luck with the windows 7 printer upgrade, you should get it working easy as I had the same problems and I have 3 printers.
