WOYWW... Remember That Halo???

...aha, yes, my New Year Resolution to keep the Room of Stash totally tidy - you know put stuff away after each project and never let it get to be 11 hours worth of cleaning again...well, it is still tidy! I know, this is positively unheard of!!! You can still see the carpet... and you can still see the surface of my desk... and... I have even kept on top of emptying the bin!!! So, that old halo that I was polishing the other week is still in place... oh it is a chore trying to be neat and tidy but seeing as it is only EIGHT days til Ellen arrives, I am making sure it stays that way!! If, perchance, you have happened across this blog for the first time and haven't come across the phenomenon that is WOYWW, please CLICK HERE to hop on over to the leader and Head Desk Hopper in Chief, aka Mrs Julia Dunnit's blog... all the deets are there!




So... as well as being uber tidy (this is getting very tiring though, I have to admit!!) I am still making cards each week too! Today sees the start of one on my desk... I am at the "let's stamp a load of images and see which ones go with the idea that is in my noddle" and I am colouring in with Distress Inks - the fact I have ProMarkers and Prisma's is immaterial, I just always seem to reach for the DI's and a waterbrush! Oh and before I forget... I have had loads of comments asking "what are the black scalloped things under the desk?" Well, these are my most treasured Studio 490 stamps... they are as close as possible to where I did so I don't even have to stretch to reach them LOL There was a little bit of excitement in the House of Sheridan yesterday afternoon... Ferdy and Gordon are now installed on their new drive! Oh, it does look fab although Ferdy is a very dirty boy and is in serious need of a good scrub. Now, keeping the Room of Stash clean and tidy is one thing... but car cleaning too? No way! That is way beyond the call of duty! Anyways... I shall stop with the waffling now... thanks for popping by... and... have a FAB day! TTFN

Helen said...

I suppose congratulations are in order, but it gives us not much to snoop at!!! I see a lot of Stampotique going on today... will keep watching!

Julia Dunnit said...

Keep it up gal, you and Ellen will get so much more done *cough* if there's spaciousness and tidiness. As for car wash - not on the new drive - nooooo! I spent £7 on mine in a carwash last Thursday and on Sunday, a friend had a pop at me because it was so dirty! Forget it!

oneoff said...

It is so tidy I had to sit back in my chair and admire it all over again. Are you available for consultations?

Looking good - I am a messy crafter - but a good cleaner-upper too - and it does really help. Enjoy playing and hope you hook up the hand with the idea!

thekathrynwheel said...

Ok, I am muchly impressed with your tidiness :-)

Sam said...

Hi Hels. I think I could be a contender for your Halo this week! LOL!!!!!! Hubby has promised to wash Clarissa so she looks nice to meet Ferdy, though I have to hoover inside Clarissa and his car. Never mind. There is NO way I could reach the top of Clarissa and Hubby will not let me use a car wash!! LOL!!

okienurse said...

OMG! I think people are telling tales on you. Ever since I started blog surfing here I have never seen your space untidy. I have a hard time keeping a head of the tidal wave in my room. Thanks for sharing.

Carola Bartz said...

I wonder how long you will keep up with being tidy. You're definitely more determined than I am. I'm already a loser in this regard.

Nicky said...

I love your tidy desk - makes me laugh that its tiring keeping it that way lol ~ Nicky no.9

RosC said...

Nah, says to myself, she's gone on holiday. And good for her in the cold and all, and the stress of the stamped driveway. The halo's a given, no need to clean up for it... so she must be away, and stamp happy just before she left.

lisa said...

How tidy are you!!! This is serious. I am very impressed. I'm with you on the DI and waterbrush. I always reach for them despite having a box of promarkers permantly on my desk. DI are just easier somehow.

You'll have such a fun time with Ellen and I'm sure there'll be plenty of mess too! Looking forward to the pics already. And yes, can't clean the car and the desk, one or the other but not both!

I'm with you on how tiring it is to be tidy! I've been pretty good about it too....my only saving grace is, it doesn't appear to be spreading to the rest of the house! hahaa Star 102

MaggieC said...

You are doing so well with the tidiness drive, and still crafting too... that is impressive. Glad your drive is finally in use and I quite agree about car cleaning.
