WOYWW... If You Are Easily Freaked...

... Don't look into the photo's... it is catching... this messyness... it is TRULY catching... whom I catched it from I am still unsure but... you know I only moved into this room in April and got it ship shape in May? Well, I made that promise, I will keep it tidy, I will put stuff away as soon as I have finished with it... I won't leave crap all over the floor... I will be a nice and neat and tidy crafter...




Mwahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa! Some evil spirit (not Vodka unfortunately) has taken over my neat-freakness and vanquished it to the... kitchen! Seriously... anyone who knows me and has ever visited my abode will agree, my kitchen always used to be a bit of a dumping ground... you know... those kind of drawers that you have to sqwish everything into a pull your arm out at the very last minute just before it is closed... and the type of cupboards that harboured ten thousand half eaten chocolate bars... *mmm, bad habit I used to have... I would eat half a Double Decker or similar and then stick it back into the cupboard for later... but then I would want chocolate another day so have half a Snickers... yep, twas true!* So, now my kitchen is neat and orderly and... I even have my cupboards sorted so the labels all face the right way... a little bit OCD if the truth be told but here is what I think happened...





My tidy gene for my Room of Stash has transferred to the kitchen... the old house had a HUGE kitchen... was untidy... the new house... smaller kitchen... very tidy... new Room of Stash... BIGGER than the old one... mmm, maybe there is something in that... anyways... I hang my head in shame... there is still that iron from last week on the desk... and the state of the floor... I went to see Linda last week and nicked some images of the new 490 stamps... and they haven't been tidied away... and erm... well, there is no excuse is there???




Or... is there??? Here is my case for the defence... the defendant (ie, moi) wishes it to be known that there has been some strange happenings in Chez GrimHels and, in fact, the defendant has been cleaning and tidying her stash away... however, her beloved furrybaby AlfieCat has taken up the hobby of crafting and because he only has little paws, he cannot tidy away after himself... plus, he is a cat, therefore expects that his servant (AKA, the defendant) will slave away after him. So, whatcha fink??? Any cop??? Do I get away with it??? Or... shall I just resign myself to the fact that I have made this mess on purpose to show you all something different??? *believe that, believe anything ROFL*




So... being as this is settling into being one of those long posts... I thought I would quickly mention that I am not going to be able to hop around the globe until this evening... cos... yup, today is the day, it has finally arrived and nay, I can barely control my excitement... it is playdate with Hels day!!! I will, however, be about later to hop about and see all your messy desks *please be reaallllly messy today so mine looks ok* And... it is also Sept 1st which means that it is the start of a brand new challenge on the Artistic Stamper Creative Team blog... I made a little something for my entry... please hop on over there to see what the new challenge is... oh and... there's candy up for grabs... all the deets are HERE. Right, I gotta go... am asking Mr Blogger to post this for me while I am in the land of nod... and am hoping some kindly person will link me up to Julia's... cos, after all, that is what Wednesday's is all about! Thanks for looking... TTFN

okay, I'd say your crafting room is rather ... busy! Happy WOYWW!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Wow, Hels. Glad I got here early so I had time to read everything. In my experience, most houses don't have a door to close off the kitchen, but do have to close off a messy, err, craft room. And don't blame it on the furbaby Alfie Cat. He has enough issues of his own (grin).

Enjoy your play date and Happy WOYWW.

TinaB said...

ROFLMAO!!!! I feel so much better lol!!!

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

Hah, now I don't feel bad at all .... it is nice to see that the mess fairy visits (not poor AlfieCat making a crafty mess you bad mother for even thinking it) at chez Hels too.

Have a lovely playdate.

Hugs

Shame on you Mrs S, blaming a poor helpless little kitten cat for making such a big mess. Now if AlfieCat was a lion or a tiger I could believe it!!!!!!

Serendipity (Christine) said...

I think you put forward a wonderful case and from henceforth your workdesk should not be known as messy - perhaps just 'a muddle'! Wonderful to have a snoop :-)

karenm said...

I reckon we all need those huge layout boards that model train enthusiast use for their layouts. You know the ones where they pop up in the middle, don the silly cap and go CHOO-CHOO! that way we could spread in 360 degrees and have everything to hand. What do you think?

Linda Elbourne said...

I hope all is going well ... I am sure it is ... can't wait to hear all about it!

Phree said...

Mess is good - at least that's my excuse!

Lori said...

Want me to come over and help clean up? I'll fire up the Concord....
Love your plaid card, really beautiful!

Sunshine Girl said...

Looks fine to me! besides I think you are lucky as i have a messy craft room and a messy kitchen! I had a play with my meltpot last week and made some of your porcelein flowers - such fun - not used them though, just made em and placed them precariously on the edge of my desk - if you look closely enough you can see em!

butlersabroad said...

Lol, obviously old habits die hard, but what's important is what comes out of all of that creative mess. And if Alfiecat has the wherewithal to craft then he can definitely tidy up after himself!!

Hugs
Brenda

Minxy said...

Lou and Mel said...

I call it PrODUCTIVE!
You have to have a messy area in the house somewhere.
Mine are in the office/dining room, kitchen, craft room, a little space in the bedroom and bathroom ......

Spyder said...

Gillian said...

Lol ... messy Hels ... I'm freaked at the kitchen part, that is worrying lol. Mess equals creativity, there you go that excuses the mess now x

voodoo vixen said...

Good grief Hels... you must have been awfully busy playing if that's the state you have managed to get into!!

Blaming poor Alfie.... tut tut....

Julia Dunnit said...

I hope you've had a fab day - am in no doubt that the people who came to play will have done. As for your room - what the hell - I can see no harm..but believe me, if that Alfie Cat ends up being as good as you are at this stuff, I think I might have to resign.

Shoshi said...

I think your room is lovely, Hels! When I got my ARTHaven ready to create in, I thought it would be lovely to keep it all tidy but being creative and being tidy don't mix!!!

Enjoy it as a glorious mess that beautiful things come out of.

Piddawinkle said...

hels there are no words . . . except maybe . . rofpml ... if only there was room LOL :)

peggy aplSEEDS said...

LOL, before i give my verdict, i require some visual evidence of furrybaby AlfieCat crafting and not tidying away after himself!
enjoy!

Alisonw30 said...

I enjoyed the snoop, loads going on, didn't spot the cat though, he must have got tired and gone out of the room to wash the glue off his paws ;-)

She said...

Love wandering round your crafty 'mess' :-) S xx

Morti said...

I got here a bit late but it was SO worth it.... you always make me chuckle. I think Alfie Cat has been taking the mick to be honest, if he can stamp, he can tidy up after himself!
