WOYWW... Mrs Messy Is Back In Town...

...yes indeedily... I just knew that it was only a matter of time before I 'fessed up and showed you the state of my room... I promised myself I would tidy away properly after each crafty session... I promised that stamps would be placed on their proper covers... and I am sure I may have been a tad smug *who me???* on previous Wednesday's about the lovely tidyness of my desk... Have you heard about this phenomenon called WOYWW??? It is headed up by Mrs Dunnit who started this addictive craze a while back and now has 100 plus peeps showing their workspaces each week... not seen it??? Hop on over to Julia's blog to see all the news. Before I waffle on anymore... I didn't get chance to get to as many desks as I wanted to last week... it is baaaad of me and I promise to try better this week... and I really appreciate all your lovely comments that you have left for me... *erm.. I have just noticed that the embossing powders drawer that I opened to photograph last week....is still open... see, that is how bad I am at the moment!! I need HELP!*




So, when I went away for my *ahem* special birthday in June, I popped into the most fabby shop and got a gorgeous metal wall hanging... it says LOVE and it is there, just to the side of my desk... I can't decide whether to alter it or not...whatch fink? Alcohol inks and some pearls etc or leave be?




I am on cake delivering duties today... piccie of said cake will be shown at a later date... ie, after the birthday girl has seen it... the smell of it has driven me mad all evening though... chocolate cake, covered in chocolate icing (frosting for my American pals) and then covered with Flake and then decorated with Caramel Nibbles...mmmm.... hope she likes it!!! Thanks for looking... see ya in Blogland... TTFN

And this is your new room that you promised to keep tidy ??? Naughty naughty Hels ....

I think your Love hanging could do with some colour - over to you.

Hey there Mrs. Messy... :) Hmmm. to alter or not to alter... that is the question...tough call. I think it's beautiful just as it is, but since it's in YOUR room of stash, and you always do such a great job altering things, I think you should go for it!

Anonymous said...

Oooooh...I was waiting for a picture of that chocolate cake you made (and a bite of it too if possible). It sounds so delicious! My vote is to alter the Love wall hanging. I have seen some of the metal you've altered with alcohol inks and they are breath-taking. Go for it!!! Marijane

Jennie said...

Great mess!! pass me a piece of chocolate cake please :)))) Hugs xx

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

HMM!! And here we had been so proud of you up to now. It's all that gadding about that did it, I'm sure.

I like the metal thing the way it is, but it does sort of get lost in the wall color. Happy WOYWW.

Helen said...

Welcome back Hels!!! Love the Love wall hanging. I am sure you could make it look even better, I say, go for it.

Tracy Evans said...

No that's not too messy just a very creative space. Your wall hanging is gorgeous but as it is your craft room maybe a little colour and altering may be a good idea just so that it looks like it has had the Hels touch for the Hels craft room. Have a good day, Tracy Evans x

Kate said...

Lovely new hanging, but what's hanging on the little round hanger under your stamp shelves?

** Kate **

JoZart said...

We all make those promises with every good intention but we all know how to break them too. It's still a fab space with lots of gorgeous stash and I love the "hearts corner"! thanks for the snoop.

joey said...

Hahahahahaha I just blew the pic up and sat searching the area for the love sign duh it was on the next pic on the wall, It is so pretty as it is. Joey.x

Sid said...

Nice to see that the tidy is a work in progress, rather than a completion !!

kerry said...

Having eaten some of Hels chocolate cakes in the past mmmmmmmmmm--- I'm dreaming of some more now after that description. Glad so see you desk looks "loved" again now x x

kath said...

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Just how I like to see a craft desk hun, it looks like it's been put to good use as it should. I love the 'Love' hanging as it is, some things should just be left.
Anne xx

whyducks said...

mmmmm..... my mouth is watering, CAKE!
Wow what a lovely lot of stamps you have. Keep up the mess it is still not up to my standard. Although I had to tidy up at the weekend for visitors and it nearly killed me, but messyish again now!

Heather x said...

oh Stop! Your making me hungry for something sweet lol.
No more tidy space...oh Hels I had such faith in you....Not ROFL.
*hugs* Heather x

Lothian Crafts said...

Your cake sounds fantastic and you are making me hungry. Love all your stamps.
Elaine

Tracey said...

Alter it, enjoy the cake and the tidying will wait (now I didn't say how long did I).

scrapcat 1 said...

I like your hanging as is maybe some pearls or stones but I like the colour, your room isn't too bad as least you can see the floor lol

Linda Elbourne said...

I want cake!!!!

Stampersue said...

Hi Hels

Love the wall hanging but i know you could make it even better with a bit of colour.

Remember only boring people have tidy rooms:-))

Rosie said...

Yes Hels, that's a MESS all right ... in fact it's what the Cumbrians would call a right scrow!! I feel you are sufficiently ashamed as to make it unnecessary for me to point this out however. Do not like the wall hanging at all, don't think it's your sort of thing - send it over here and I'll find a home for it ...

Rosie said...

PS And I'll have a slice of that cake to go with it??

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh thank god. Was beginning to think you'd be occupying the moral tidy high ground for ever. And now I've got it haha!!I love the LOVE, and would leave it. For now. But what do I know.

Darcy said...

lol love the mess, doesn't look like your room at all! how about instead of altering the 'love' hanging, why don't you mount it or hang it over a painted, distressed,stamped background...that way you can change the background when you fancy a change.

Ellephantastic Cards and Crafts said...

looks like organised mess to me!! best way looks like fun! x

Sue said...

Hi hels
your love hanger was the first thing my eyes went to, its beautiful, i can't alter to save me life!! I no see mess, i see creativity in the making! lol, have great day, sue,x

julie m said...

you think this is messy? my ever decreasing work space is piled up at least a foot deep all the way around. when one section slips to the floor i clear the whole thing off and start over.
my thought is to not alter it. it is so pretty as it is. when i start altering something i like and try to make it more interesting i frequently end up wishing i had not done it. granted, you are way more talented than i am and your projects always look so pretty. but you did ask...

Carmen said...

*grumble*rumble*grumble* That's was my tum. Thank you VERY much ;)

wwilloww said...

OK!! Now it is looking like a craft room!!! As for the Love wallhanging, as pretty as it is, it just looks so bare hanging there! It definitely needs a Hels loving touch to give it some real life!!! Go for it and I can't wait to see the result!!

jude said...

Wow hels love your c raft room and shelves !id call it busy not messy!!
hugs judex

Have a nice evening

Serendipity (Christine) said...

Wow what a brilliant creative space - the wall hanging is beautiful, think I'd be tempted to keep it as it is :-)

Deezines Art said...

Love the mess and the Love hangy thingy - mmm cake - jacqueline xx

Spyder said...

Love the love wall hanging, I would leave it for now, and then change it later, then it will seem like a new thing all over again, great crafty space!! Have a Happy WOYWW!!
((Lyn))

Chrissie said...

I think if I was the altering kind, I would alter the 'love' thingy. Maybe a bit more rusticky!
The cake sounds devastating (to the waistline)! Yum, yum!
Chrissie

craftimamma said...

If your lovely hanging heart were in my room I'd leave it be because I'd be afraid of spoiling it but you won't, so go ahead.

Er. how long since you got your new 'crafting gaff'? Hmmm, exactly! Didn't take you long now did it, ha! ha!

Hugs
Lesley

PS Thanks so much for the congrats. I really appreciate your encouragement Mwah!

Cher~ said...

I love your messiness. It looks like you've been busy and REALLY making ART!! Your work has been absolutely amazing. I haven't been ableo to do a lot of blog hopping and visiting lately, but I keep peeking in on your stuff.

Beth said...

you have so many stamps! i am jealous. :)

peggy aplSEEDS said...

well you can always enjoy the love thing the way it is and then alter it when you feel like it. great work space. i would love to play here

Cardarian said...

Hi Hels!

Did you really think you were going to have a tidy desk forever?? I would be very disappointed! Besides it is much more fun snooping around a messy desk! That cake discription has made me sooooo want some cake, I am going to walk doown to the shop and get one! Love the love hanging thing, but knowing you you will definitly alter!
Hugs,
Cardarian

Cath said...

Good to see the real you back...

Violets Corner said...

He he I've seen messier rooms! It looks like you still can find everything.

Love hanging is fab like that, but it could be altered if you grow tired of it.

Mmm can smell the chocolate cake!

Hugs

Wipso said...

Thats not messy. It's just busy and there's no point having a super space like yours if you cant have fun in it :-)

Doone said...

oooh any cake left over - sorry I'm late - please can I have the crumbs?

Dx

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Love looking at busy desks! That love hanging is so pretty, but I'm sure if you add your personal touch, it will look even better!

Tracey said...

its not such a messy space, very creative. Hope your cake delivery went well. I dont think you should alter your wall hanging, it looks stunning as it is. Mind you that is just my opinion as I am rubbish at altering things, you of course are a master at it.

Sorry that this is late and I hope you have a fantastic weekend
Tracey

Becky H said...

I want some of those chocolate things you put on the cake!!! Can't get them here across the pond. A messy desk is a sign that a creative genius has been at work! That's my story and I'm sticking to it! And BTW, I've been lurking on your blog for a while ( i think I commented once or twice, but mostly lurking) and would just like to say that your art is awesome!

Sunshine Girl said...

Nothing wrong with that desk at all its looks fabulously creative and inspiring! I would go for it with the hanger (says she who has loads of items around the house and means to alter them but never seems to get around to it!).

Jane said...

I LOVE your crafty space!

Nancy said...

Still getting around everyone this week....I love your work space the chaos and space are brilliant.

Thanks for sharing

Alisonw30 said...

I'm sure I must have said that I am jealous of all those stamps before, but I'm saying it again, I'm very jealous! Cake looks yummy! x

Pam said...

Lots to see here, love the wall are. Also love your altered CD's. hugs Pam

FlipSyde said...

Cake.
That's all I'm thinkin'.
I don't give a crap if it's frosting or icing or sticky sweet gunk on the top - call it what you want, but now I have to Go Right Now to the cupcake bistro and find an adequate substitute for An Actual Gihugic Cake, which I now want. Right Now.
Most seriously, this is my last (okay, and only) WOYWW visit for today because I am putting on mascara - and pants too probably - and going there before they freakin' close.
If I do not become completely engrossed, I am going to post a picture of my delectable prize so that everyone else has to go buy cake too.
I WILL NOT GAIN WEIGHT ALONE.
Amy
