WOYWW... It Was Tidy...

... honest, it was!!! I spent a couple of hours tidying away and throwing out and putting stuff back in its place... and then I made it all messy again! Well, who ever heard of a tidy crafter eh? Back in January I made a few resolutions and one of them was to keep the Room of Stash tidy at all times... and I think, over all, I managed... occasionally I have slipped off the tidy-wagon and the Room of Stash has become the Doom of Trash a few times. Why am I waffling on about the state of my room eh? Well... today is Wednesday which means it's time for the crafty peeps of Bloglandia to show off their desks/rooms/floors (you are so NOT seeing my floor, I have a reputation to keep you know lol) Head on over to Julia's blog and see what all this is about... I keep being asked "what are the black things under the desk?" Well, they are my beloved and most treasured Studio 490 stamps... and check out the ink pads in front of where I sit... all labelled neatly... they are my Archival Inks... and then I have the Distress Inks/Stains, also labelled and in colour order (I am so organised with that kind of thing... shame about the rest of the room lol)



Anyways... yesterday I was going on about those ickle Rosette Trees that the Duke of Distress was showing on his blog (HERE they are)... and of course, if I try something once and like it, I get very quickly addicted and have to make more... which is why I now have a small forest of trees... needless to say, they are all glittered which means that I am now all glittered... as is AlfieCat who has been assisting with the bow making, he is ever so clever, getting ribbon in his chops and hurtling off down the stairs... shame the ribbon was still attached to the reel... a very lot of winding it back on you know...


Right I had better get a move on... I am debating whether to do the "big" shop today... but I have lots of other things that I can be doing, like ironing and defuzzing the cobwebs (tis like Miss Haversham's dining room in the corners of my room!) Shopping? For Christmas? I must be mental... *no need to answer that one* Thanks for looking... Merry Christmas to all the desk-hoppers, it has been a fab year sharing all our crafty spaces, looking forward to 2012 and seeing more! TTFN

Love those trees and guess this is one mini project I could have a go at without the TH dies - have card/can fold.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

Sarah said...

Humdingers of Tim tress there. I have chosen for kind of tidy over clean in my room and can now doodle in the dust. Will add a clean up to the 2012 list! Thanks for sharing in such a busy week! Hope you have a very festive and wonderfully merry time - see you in 2012! Also wishing you oodles of good health, a happy heart and lots of blessings on your new crafty ventures - am all ready for the next show! Sarah at 11.

Morti said...

PMSL at Alfie cat - atta boy! I have a hint for the cobwebs, embrace them by spraying with spray adhesive, and sprinkling glitter on them. Turn them into a feature.

I think you have also given me another reason to buy the rosette die. Gorgeous trees....

Tracey Fletcher KIng said...

Hope you survived the big shop... I am fortifying myself with a couple of quick visits before I head out... have a great holiday season...xx

L00py's Craft Creations said...

Ah now see my Alfie is called Rio, and he's a Rottie, who thinks the greatest game is to sneak into the craft room, and run off with something!!
Love the trees but just havent got round to making any yet!! Maybe after christmas, or would that be too early?
Happy belated WOYWW and if I dont pop back before, Merry Christmas,

The Crafty Elf said...

Oh my....a girl who I can relate too! As fast as I clean up...Yikes, a mess again! My table goes from stamping to blogging to wrapping to blogging to a little bit of other stuff back to wrapping and throw in a glue gun here and there! It's Christmas Chaos! Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas with family and friends and All The Best for a Safe, Happy and Healthy New Year!
