WOYWW 166

I haven't taken part in WOYWW for a couple of weeks, but thought it was about time that I joined in again and showed the state of my workspace for WOYWW 166.

Thank you to all those WOYWWers who have recently left comments and wished me well. I still have some lingering effects of the shingles, but nothing like it was at its worst.

So here is my space today:


I've been asked what's in the crates towards the top of the shelves - unmounted stamps (just some of them - the rest are housed in boxes which sit on the unit the other side of the room).

So here is the view of the left of where I sit - mainly boxes that need to be put away - although there's probably little point because I'll probably only want them out again!


And to the right of me are piles of cards that I've made recently that need to have inserts put in and bagged and labelled. At the beginning of the year one on my crafty resolutions was to do this every Monday so that the job didn't get out of hand. Well, I didn't do any last Monday, so I think I need to get on and do them before the piles get much higher - but I'd far rather be crafting!

The little mesh box with Christmas toppers (decoupaged etc) ready to be used is still there, but I have used some of the pieces recently, so that's a bit of progress.


I look forward to getting round to see some of the workspaces of WOYWWers.

UPDATE:

I've actually entered some more photos as #138 at WOYWW 166 because I know that some of you think that I never get untidy!! You can also see them here.

  11. So glad to hear you're on the mend, Hazel - what an awful time you've had with it...
    I think you're right about not putting away boxes cos you know you're just going to have to get them out again...I'm afraid I leave material out all over the spare bed because I know I'll need it again!
    Hugs, LLJ ~13 xx

  20. It always amazes me Hazel just how many cards you manage to make each week. At the most I have to make ten a month and sometime I even struggle to do that.

    Thanks for stopping by this week.

  32. I love the feel of your crafty space. It looks like everything is near to hand where you need it most. I'm getting better at doing the insides of my cards at the same time as the outsides, but I do know what you mean. Happy WOYWW! Victoria no.53

  36. Hi Hazel - all looking very productive & neat & tidy on your desk this week ! The pile of cards is huge ! I'm struggling to get 1 80th birthday card done ! Thanks for stopping by earlier !

    ReplyDelete
  37. There is that desk with the crates I like so much. I wish my space could be as tidy as yours. Even when my is picked up it isn't as nice looking. I'm impressed with the large stash of Christmas toppers you have amassed. And I'm just jealous of all the cards you have completed.

  38. I love your stamp display and how everything is so organized. That stack of cards is amazing!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and the kind comments.

  41. I'm glad you're feeling better, hope you're 100% soon! Your space is so organized! I'm the same way, why put some things away when I'll just be getting them out again?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Happy to read you are recovering. I have to tell you I hate to finish off the insides of my cards too. I try to make myself at least put in a plain white piece inside before putting it away, then I can add a strip of coordinating paper inside. Still...not as fun as the outside LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  43. That's a great craft area. I love they way you can see all those wood mounted stamps right in front of you.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thanks for stopping by! You have a great little space for crafting. My, look at all those finished cards!!!

  47. So glad you are feeling better nothing worse than the shingles. I love your super organized work-space a woman after my heart as they say. Everything has a place and should be in it or in the crafting world getting there.

    Thanks for visiting me.

  48. Shingles is such a shocker, and you must be glad it's on the down-hill run. Get into the crafting as soon as possible.
    Your crates are ideal for storing unmounted stamps methinks. I'm not so certain about my system so ready to see what others do.
    Thanks for leaving me a kind comment.

  49. Looks as if you have a great (big) crafting area hazel, and it all looks very light and airy.
    Glad to hear the shingles are on the way out, shoo, shoo, be gone, there is crafting to do.
    Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet xx #36

  50. So pleased the shingles are subsiding Hazel. And (wickedly) pleased to see you have a load of cards waiting for inserts too - I like your idea of doing them on a certain day of the week, but then I'd need eight days in a week!

    Belated Happy WOYWW, at least we finished the envelopes in super fast time! Di xx #3

  52. Hazel,

    First, I am glad to hear you are feeling better. I know it must be tough working through shingles. But by the size of that pile of cards you created, you are still producing beautiful art. Love your cards.

    Second, I feel honored you took the time and stopped by my desk. Thank you. I find inspiration in all of the ladies on WOYWW in different ways each week and you are on that list girlfriend.

    Feel better and see you next week.

  56. I'm late getting started this week. I blame it on the Linky snafu. I didn't even know what shingles was until I saw something about it on TV.

    Wow, you have a ton of cards. And stamps, too. You have more stamps in one box than I own! I'm number 22, but you know because you've already visited.

  62. Hi Hazel Thanks for popping by. I am really late visiting this week. You have been busy! I always put off doing inners too! Mind you it is easier to put them in when you know who you are sending them too. It doesn't work if you are selling though! Eat chocolate whilst you do it I say! Belated WOYWW Hugs from Helen 23
