WOYWW... I Tidied Up.. But...

... I made it all messy again ROFL Actually, I really did tidy up... well, I moved the papers to the desk, added an iron (not for clothes) and put away the stamps and got a few more out... So, what am I on about??? If you haven't heard of the phenomenon that is WOYWW... click HERE to go to see Julia and her several thousand followers who show their workspaces/desks/floors each week.




On my desk this week is a WIP - hoping to get it finished today - yes, using my favest paint in the world... Claudine Hellmuth's Traditional Tan... and some other stashy bits, I am altering a frame... I have noticed that in the past few weeks my Room of Stash is becoming more and more like a teenagers bedroom... except I haven't got all the crockery in the house doing penicillin experiments under the bed... well, I can't do that 'cos I haven't got a bed in here you know LOL




As well as the worky desk and the erm... dumping desk I have a sneaky peek at part of the first workshop with yours truly which is next Weds Sept 1st - there are some places left, so if you fancy getting inky and messy come and have a playdate with... erm... me! :O)) To see all the deets on how to book etc you can click here and pop over to see Wendy... she will sort it out for you :O))




So, whatcha got planned for today? I am hoping to get around to lots of desks... last week I was having really bad probs getting my internet to load my comments... so some timed out and I am not sure if you actually had the comment or not or actually had three the same LOL I gotta tell you this... a certain friend emailed me yesterday and made me literally spit my Diet Coke *other soft low cal drinks are available LOL* at the lappy screen... cos she told me that she was going... this is hilarious, I have never heard this saying before, I will sure be using it all the time from now on... "bat sH*t crazy" How funny is that!!! Anyways... thanks for looking... have a goodly day... TTFN :O))

Such awesome lovely and engaging room, I love to snoop round it.

I have to adopt that saying from now on .... priceless.

Hugs

Kay

BTW, stop flashing your WV 490 stamps .... I now want some.

Morning Hels! Love your desk and I'm glad it is still a wonderful mix of creativity even though it has been tidied. tanks for dropping in on me!

Toodles and Binks (Galaxy Girl from UK STampers) said...

It's me (back again, but no stalking you honestly) ... vids are super easy to do. I either use the web cam and ustream (no other sofware involved) and you can automatically then upload to youtube or I use my digi camera on video mode and once uploaded Windows Movie Maker, then upload to Youtube - that way I can get front screens etc.

Want a play date for me to show you how to do it? In the meantime maybe I will do a vid.

If I can do it anyone can ... as I am a technical retard.

Hugs
Kay

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Sounds like a fun day - wish I were going to be about :( - although it is all looking just a little but too tidy for me.

Those birdies are adorable too. Surely there MUST be a UK supplier for this sort of thing? Something like this might work http://tiny.cc/vzqhp although you would have to make some legs :)

Thanks for a great WOYWW desk - you led me all over the place LOL!

Love to Alf

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I have no idea why it is, but every time I come to your blog, I get the biggest grin on my face. And yes, the bat blank is funny.

What's the iron for? Are you planning to iron my rusted fabric? If so, I'll gladly share some.

Heather x said...

Morning Hels :)
You made me chuckle this morning, thanks for that I sure needed it this morning....lets just say, roll on school!
Beautiful tag too :)

Paula Gale said...

gosh - you have some seriously lovely stamps on them there shelves Hels... how on earth do you know which ones to use, or do you use the new stuff and forget the rest of what you've got (a bit like me?)

You asked what we'd be up to today... desperately placing a shopping order on tesco online i think...

Paula x x x

ellen said...

Here I am, that certain someone, yes it's Miss "Bat S*it Crazy"- audit season will do it every time... :) LOL!

Always fun reading your posts Hels! Haven't tried any claudia paints and they must be good because I've read others are loving them too. Looking forward to your finished art. Fantastic as per usual:)

Kay said...

Wish I could come to your workshops, but too far away plus I am back at work next week :(

Lou and Mel said...

Love the craft room - looking very busy and productive!
Gorgeous looking tag too!
Never heard of Bat Sh*t crazy - but am sure to use it now!!!

nerllybird said...

That looks like a nice cosy crafting space. If it was mine I'd just be knocking everything over all the time - all those stamps going over like dominoes, lol!

Tracy Evans said...

Hi Hels I have left my names for your birdies on your last post the metal teal one along with my Sunday Stamper challenge. Quite a tidy desk today Hels, but lots of interesting things in your room, would love to come and play. Not heart Bat sh*t crazy before LOL. Have a good day, Tracy x

Tracy Evans said...

Actually Hels I have posted them on your "curiously batty about" post, sorry Tracy. My names are there for your birds and the Sunday Stamper piece. xx

Serendipity Stamping said...

Loved walking through your room today. Am always interested to see what is hanging on the walls and I really need some shelves.

The Crafty Goat Girl said...

Hello Hels, am loving your desk today. Your flowers on the tag are gorgeous, like little daisies.

Great photo of Alfie! hugs Heidi x

Shazza said...

wot u like you messy little thing!! Like the sneaky peek, shame I can't be there next Wednesday but wish you lots of luck x

voodoo vixen said...

Morning Hels!! well, it is for me!! Love your desk today, I always catch glimpes of the lovely things you have hanging above it and drool in a very unladylike manner!!

Linda Cain said...

Oh, so easily amused. You lovely Brits have so many WONDERFULLY colorful phrases! I just love reading your blogs and trying to understand them, if I had a ?, I'd ask the little English gal at my hairdressers....but Bat S*@t Crazy, I knew and understood. It's been around here for decades.
Still works for me.
Been there many, many times!

Pam said...

Teenagers rooms I'm so glad we have 3 stories n they live at the top as I'm too lazy to go up there plus it's not good for my heart I have palpitations whenever I see the mess!!

Lisa aka Myran said...

So many stamps you've got there! I really like the tag. Thanks for the peek :)

Nan said...

Hels I would certainly love to have you come play but you must do the ironing...LOL! I am intrigued by the sheet music ....whatever will you do with it? :) Nan

Becca said...

Hi I'm Becca, and I just dropped by and had a nice visit seeing all of your creations! Wow, your desk looks like mine when I start a project. My work space isn't that large, and it gets so cluttered very quickly!
Enjoy your day!

Doone said...

I hang my head in shame - when I went on holiday I forgot to move my tea cup from craft desk to dishwasher - I had a penicliin brek out when I got back...

glad I'm not the only teenager type crafter round here....I can't be both creative AND grown up at the same time...

hope the iron was for wax not clothes or I shall lose faith in your sluttishness Ms S

Sarpreet said...

love your wooden stamps and how you have those clear stamps in those boxes. Thank you for visiting my blog on WOYWW, Happy WOYWW - thank you for the info of those draws at B&Q - thats maybe why I could not get them at Matalan after the first purchase!

Sarpreet said...

Thank you for becoming a follower of my blog - I have joined your site too

Carola Bartz said...

Twiglet said...

Oh what a lot of stuff you have to play with - no wonder you make such fab things but do try not to spit Coke all over them...lol

Timi said...

Nice craft room, lucky to have two desks. I like the bit of mess too :D Timixx

Rachel said...

I've been described as bat sh*t crazy; it's not as nice when people say it about you rather than you saing it about yourself!

But your desk(s) all look amazing. And you've reminded me why I don't dust or tidy: you just have to do it again!

Thanks for sharing.

Chrissie said...

I'm a bit late getting started on my trip around the desks this week.
Is that Anthony Newley on the sheet music of DO you Mind?
Crikey, that takes me back a long way!
