WOYWW... With A Fur Baby

...Wow! Another week has whipped past and we arrive back at Wednesday... and for followers of Head Desk Inspector Julia will all be blogging their workspaces... mine isn't much different from last week... I am still being relatively tidy... the floor is better than last week, at least you can see it now LOL



Another angle of the Room of Stash is the stacked up drawers that are in dire need of sorting... when I unpacked after the move a lot of stuff was literally plonked into the drawers to get it out of the way... that is a job for the weekend I think...although, which weekend...who knows!!!... on top of the messy drawers is my messy pile of things to alter... I have had that birdhouse for nearly a year and still it sits there, unloved and untouched by Traditional Tan paint ROFL




And... my little GuardCat was in my room when I took the photo's late last night, in fact, he is still here... but is now on my chair! The bed is a bit small for him and he usually ends up with his head on my computer desk... aw, my little fluff ball loves his craftroom!





It's my friends son's birthday today... so I made him a card ... trying to get "down wiv the youth", I used text speak for the message... the image is Twinkie, isn't he adorable? I think he is one of my favest Stampotique stamps ... erm, I know, I usually say that about all the stamps I use... but thinking about it.. I wouldn't have a stamp if I didn't like it now would I? :O))




And... finally, it is a new challenge day on Gingersnap Creations... the theme today is Markers... hop on over to their blog to see all the deets :O)) Right, time for me to head off into BlogLand and try and get to as many desks as possible. I think Blogger was playing up last week but I tried to get to loads and leave messages and the ones with word verification were not working, saying the letters were wrong... anyone else have this problem? Anyways... time for me to go... don't forget to pop over to see Julia, the leader of the nosey brigade LOL ... TTFN...

Wow I love all your things for altering, you have so many LOL. Tidy desk this week Hels, which I love cause I am a tidy freak LOL. Love the card too. I had the same problem as you last week with word verification, I had to enter some 3 times before it would accept my comment. Have a good Wednesday, Tracy Evans x

Helen said...

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Plonking was probably good when you moved. I like the birdhouse and I see the letters A and R and T there, too. Would love to see how you alter them.

That is the perfect card for a 12 yo, too. Love it.

LadyBug said...

wonderful stamp storage. I bet you use them loads more because you can see all of them. much better than stored in a box or in a cupboard.

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Wow! You've got a load of wooden stuff to alter! And soooo many stamps! You're a wonder cause it's all so neatly arranged! Patsy from
HeARTworks

Mummylade said...

ooh, I'd love to sort those drawers for you. They seem to hold amazing things.
(so basically, invite a friend, bake a cake for her and get her to sort it for you. Doing stuff at other peoples place is so much more fun)

Rosie said...

The craft room is actually looking wonderfully well organised and settled - and anyway I've got one those of "get around to altering it" piles, but I keep mine in a plastic box in a cupboard, which hides it nicely. Love that birthday card - but I can't quite bring myself to buy the stamp - he's just SO ugly! I know .. and I'm sorry.

peggy aplSEEDS said...

wow, lots of stamps, so neatly arranged. you certainly picked a good stamp for a young one.

Kate said...

Lots of lovely things that need altering, not the cat!

Great craft room! I love all the stamps arranged so neatly on the shelves - how organised!!

I also love the Guardcat. I have one too, his name is Bertie and is another black & white one. He has a new "friend", another craftroom guardcat called Dixie. Why do they all love the craft room?!!
