WOYWW ... & A Little Helper...

... blinking blimey, where on earth is the time going? It seems like a couple of days ago that it was last Wedsnesday and therefore time to go snooping at followers of Julia and her WOYWW gang. If you haven't taken part in this yet...why not??? Basically, you take a piccie of your desk/craft area etc and then add a linky to Julia's list on her blog... and then you hop all over the world to the other peeps who have linked as well.




This week I have a very lovely room and an almightily tidy desk area.. however, I do have a little helper with me... my AlfieCat has decided that instead of the comfy bed I have set up for him, he wants to sit on my chair, right where I need to be sitting... so we are sharing it, with me perching on approximately 2" of chair while he spreads out and snoozes! I have some birthday cards on one desk... there as a reminder that it is only 5 more days til I can start to grow old very disgracefully LOL *you may notice that one of the cards is for a Son In Law... all I will say is that Dan got me this one... too long a story to explain ;o))*





I made a little tag for my next entry to Linda's Tags of Countdown... she may have mentioned a couple of times that she only has a few more sleeps til she goes to Ranger U .. and is doing a Countdown with tags... click HERE to go and see what she is up to... like I said yesterday, I am so not bothered that she is swanning off to the US of A to see Mr Holtz and Co... leaving me here in the cold and rainy British summer ROFL



I have used DI's and based it on a design in Tim's latest book. Loving that birdcage stamp and adding the chain to it... wish I could say I thought it up, but alas, it is a copy of the Master himself :O))




I gotta go now ... I have a special assignment for today... nagging!!! I have three more shelves to put up in my room and Grim is off today, so... wheyhey, I reckon a bit of nagging and they will be up and filled with stash by the end of the day! *here's hoping!* Thanks for looking.. have a goodly day.. TTFN

Oh, what a lovely tag today too. I have this picture of you falling off the front of the chair, trying not to sit on Alfiecat! Good luck with the shelves.

Joanne said...

I want to come and play in your room with all that Tim stash and gorgeous Alfie. My Toby used to come and sit on my knee so I was pinned down. Ok whilst crafting but not so good when on the loo!!!!! Luv Joanne xx

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I love the new room, especially now that everything is out of boxes and in its proper place. Bleubeard is really jealous of Alfie. He doesn't get all that lovey-dovey treatment.

That tag is adorable. Love the Tim style. Have a great Wednesday.

Jennie said...

What an amazing collection of stamps! You must have so much fun playing with them± x

Amy, at Over At Our Place, has blogged a post about our online friendships. I was only thinking something similar the other day. I do believe that 'Friends come into your life for a reason, a season or forever' (as somebody said) and that it is OK to have groups of friends who never meet. My definition of a friend is someone you can share worries and triumphs with, someone who will happy for your success and sad for your trials. I guess that definitely makes us friends and I'm proud to say that. I'm going to go and post a copy of this on all the blogs I follow. Thanks for being a friend.

Julia Dunnit said...

There are other ways to manipulate Grim you know - I can't discuss it here, but it works well for Mr Dunnit!!!!! The thing about your lovely room that always strikes me is the light..and the stuff of course. Happy Birthday too - I had no idea you'd got that age already!!

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Gorgeous tag hun, love the colours. I tried making one for Linda's 10 in the early hours but after colouring 3 tags in I was stuck for inspiration :-/
Oooh Julia! LOL
Ah adore Alfie Cat ;-)
Anne xx

Paula Gale said...

Love the tags and the swirly colour - its almost like irredescent oil on water effect... anyway, giv Alfie Cat a pat and a stroke from me...

squishy hugs back

Tracy Evans said...

I would love to have a good rummage in your stamps. Those shelves look fantastic, I want some, just need more room and a man that does LOL. Love the tag and yesterday's too. Your room is looking fab and we need a close up of all your birthday cards when you get them, nosey eh. Have a great Wednesday, Tracy Evans x

Dallying Debz said...

I thought you'd had AlfieCat for a while? If so have you not worked out yet that its his house, not yours and you must work around his needs (NOT YOURS)!

Tigger and I (not Acne Cat) play a game to see who can race to the craft chair the fastest. Obviously I lose and then craft standing up until he deems it fit for me to sit.

Charming but we love them!

I think I'm going to have to get that stamp. Looks fab on your fab tag

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Chrissie said...

Love your tag and your craft room and how sweet that Alfie wants to be so close to you!
Gosh 40, I can't even remember that far back lol!

Sherry Goodloe said...

Hi Hels! What a nice tidy workspace you've got going on there. Love the tag. And Alfiecat? Ooooooooh yes - just a precious "helper" you have there :)

I'm playing along this week for WOYWW. Won't you stop by when you get a chance?

Have an art-filled day today!

Yours Artfully said...

Lin

Oooh, nice tag BTW

Kathryn said...

love, love , love your room. I have been drooling at your shelves of stamps for a while. Love the tag, can't go wrong with inspiration from T!m! Your cat made me laugh, I have the same problem with one of mine, Poppy, who can be up on my chair before I have fully stood up! Your Alfie looks like my George, very handsome, Kx

Caroline said...

Lovely load of stamps Hels! - love your little helper too...aaaww....x

Rosie said...

Your room is looking brilliant - hope it's making you as happy as mine does! You're lucky to have Alfie's company, we had to say goodbye to our dear ole cat yesterday and I keep thinking I can hear her calling. Hope you get your new shelves ...

Fliss said...

Hope you're having a good day Hels. Your little Alfie is gorgeous but a bit naughty to steal your chair lol
Really lovely Sir Tim tag too - just love the colours.
Hope you've got your wished for shelves too.

Alfiecat is adorable and the tag you made is stunning, hope you have a great day!

Angie said...

Love that beautiful tag...perfect colours.
I am sure I can see a tiny spot of green in your eyes by the way lol. At least Alfie chose the chair not the middle of the desk.

Alix said...

love your tag...and lifting from tim is the norm i think! he is afterall, the god of ink!!

Linda Elbourne said...

The room of stash is looking mighty fine and Alfie is looking mighty comfortable. Great tag and Thank you for joining in the tag countdown again ... only 9 more sleeps :0)

minnie_mac said...

Yes, I know the scenario. I spend most of my life perched on the edge of my chair while a little helper stretches out and yawns contentedly behind me.

Fabby tag.

judie said...

oh the cat knows where the best seat in the house is lol, golly how many stamps have you got, i want to play lol xx

Bettythebaglady said...

Grow old--my ----! You are only 3 weeks older than the youngest in our brood. He is not mentioning it and I have been told a great deal of groaning has occurred whenever the subject is raised during nights out with the lads-lads LOL!!! Suspect he is not planning a party then-how about you? Don't think I'll bother to give him a pressie if he is trying to ignore it. Tag looks fantastic. Did you mention someone is going to USA to see Mr. T? Never would have guessed! Hugs BettyXXX
PS Hugs to Alfiecat and a special tickle around the ears.

itsamistry said...

The Crafty Goat Girl said...

Hi Hels, super tag, love the embellies and colours. Great WOYWW, love the shelving, want to come play! hugs Heidi xx

Shar said...

You have such a way with tags! Love it! Great charms too!

Carmen said...

Don't they just make you feel guilty if you try and move them? Our dogs are the same, I get such puppy eyes if I try to nudge them off my chair and so end up perched on the edge with numb bum cheeks. *g* Suckers we are, complete fools!

Love your shelves and desk area. Have a bit of craft space envy going on this end!

The Crafty Chick said...

Alfiecat is the spitting image of our Otis cat. Seriously. I thought you must have come and got him! Otis like a good tummy rub. And catches at least one vole a day. Rolls in the sand every evening and chases his tail in the stainless fridge reflection every morning. Does alfie do that too? Leandra.

Paper and Ribbons said...

Hels, the tag is beautiful and I just want to cuddle Alfiecat!

Candace said...

There are crafting cats everywhere this week!

Neat & tidy desk as usualand a lovely tag,

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

Hugs Can x
