WOYWW... Oh The Shame Of It...

... you see, there I went... getting all smug because I had gone for nearly a whole year with only a minor mishap with NY Resolution #4, which was to keep the Room of Stash neat and tidy... and not to allow it to slide into the mire that is the Doom of Trash. Well, I can hold my paws up and admit that ... erm... I have ... ahem... let things slip a little bit of late (ok, they have gone and done more than slip, they have rushed headlong into this hovel-like room) So... yes, it is very shaming but... I am seeking absolution... I have tried to console myself with platitudes and excuses and nowt seems to be working... so I thought that if I admitted it to all you WOYWW-ers you would say "nooo, it isn't untidy... it is a bad camera angle" or something like that. So... whatcha fink? Actually, if you are new to Bloglandia you are probably wondering what on earth I am waffling on about... well, over on Julia's blog, there's a fantastic phenomenonywotsit called What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday... where to bloggers of the craft world unite and show off their gleaming studio's, neat and organised shelves and... ok, most of us are messy, untidy and never can bear to part with a single snippet of paper. CLICK HERE for all the deets :O))



Anyways. I do have a couple of brilliant cast-iron excuses, I mean reasons... well, first of all, I went out for the day and AlfieCat decided to have his Christmas party in here and let off all manner of party poppers and silly string... and then I got sick (that is actually true) and I couldn't manage to even pick up an inkpad let alone do anything with it (milks it for sympathy) and then I have been doing a special thingywotsit for a pal and I have been (don't tell anyone... ) scrapbooking! Oh and then... I had the bright idea to sort out my Idea-ology papers... and then got a bit sidetracked looking at yonder t'internet. And... the jar with the paintbrushes... honestly, it has been cleaned out since last I showed the Room of Stash ... it has... really... I know the water looks like some strange kind of alien liquor but it isn't ... and I am just about to clean out those brushes... I am.. in a minute... I will ... really..........

Right... time for me to stop with the waffle and start with the tidying up... this time next week it will be gleaming and glistening and neat, and tidy, and orderly, and... and... well, ok, but a girl can dream yah? Thanks for looking... TTFN!

Wow well you have been a busy bee and had lots going on, so there is no shame in that! Happy woyww, no desk from me as nothing to show! Hugs trace x

craftimamma said...

Wow Hels, it does look like you've been busy, lol! This blooming new Blogger way of showing pics when you click on them is definitely bugging me now as I can't zoooooooom in really close to see all the little details of your messy desk any more :(( I used to be able to see lots of interesting bits peeking out from under things but not any more, darn it!

Hugs
Lesley Xx

Annie said...

You look to have been very busy in there so the mess is excused. I'm sure the camera angle hasn't helped though :-)

Joanne said...

Hels, you'll break your neck in there. For goodness sake, let me come and play, I mean tidy it for you. Blaming AlfieCat - really.
Hugs Joanne xx

Neil said...

Good morning; thought I'd pop in to say Hi quickly. Hope you have a fabulous and creative week. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us today. Anyway, your life has been so busy I'm surprised it's not worse! Also, now you're a telly personality aren't you going to have "staff" to tidy away for you?!

Kate said...

okienurse said...

OH No! I think your camera must be broken cause everything is looking a bit blurry and out of place today. Looks very creative in all the blurriness though! My room is so much worse but....I likee it! Thanks for sharing! Have a great week and Happy Holidays! Vickie #35

Ann B said...

I love a good mess. Looks like you have to sidle in there to get to your desk so that is even better. Intrigued by those two hanging fabric thingies at the right, hanging under the bottom shelf - would love a closer look.
Happy WOYWW

Let's hope Santa brings you a new camera, girl, cos that one makes your wonderfully clean room look a tad messy!!! And what a bad Alphie cat eh???!!! We absolve you (mine is SOOOOOOOO much worse... see last week's woyww on my blog!!!! tee hee)
Love and light

Dee in N.H. said...

Well, giggles and tee-hee's all around! Looks like some fun is being had in there!

Bella said...

OH and don't forget to add to your list of excuses, a stint on the telly! Mine looks the same or worse if I had to pan out a bit, you would see that you can't really walk on the floor...let alone see my desk...

snazzyoriginal said...

Oh I feel so much better about my work space - well that is the much reduced space I am left to work in given the spread of my stash lol!!Please don't be too thorough or quick with the spick and span look, it is the season of goodwill after all xx

Helen said...

Well, let's face it - you were starring on tv, then you got sick (not connected I hope!) and then you let Alfie-cat in to play.... have a great day doing - whatever you do to avoid tidying (speaks from experience!)

Li'l Pidge said...

With everything you have been up to recently I'm surprised its not worse! A clean and tidy craft space is NEVER as creative as a messy one (well, that's my excuse!!).

Glad to know there are many others who have disaray once in a while. Such a busy time of the year, and it's kinda do the top of the list and the other things wait season,
Have fun with WOYWW and enjoy your tidding up, the count down is on.

Morti said...

Hah! And not having seen you on a WOYWW for a week or two, we wuz thinking you'd come over all famous and didn't want to know us anymore.... instead, you were letting Alfie cat party. Joy joy.

Hope you are feeling better hun!

whyducks said...

Electra said...

You know what I love the most? That there is stuff on your chair. Just like the stuff on my chair!

Sandra said...

ScrappnBee said...

LOL! You are awesome! Love the space, even in its messy glory...cause that is how I left mine as I snatched and grabbed on my way out the door (as I am on a mini holiday). Thanks for making me smile. Happy WOYWW! -Amanda 29

Lothian Crafts said...

Doone said...

Tracey Fletcher KIng said...

I love the way you write and that first part had me giggling... I was expecting some nightmare... but instead it was really quite fine... just looks productive if you ask me.. mess room means a creative spirit at play doesn't it...xx

Caz said...

My room's tidier than yours is! Nah nah nah nah nah....or something to that effect! It's a rare thing I must admit, but I've been working too hard to have time in there!
Hope you're fully better now!
When you interviewing for the staff Neil's on about.....I want to know when to send my application form in!?!?!?!?! LOL

Sharon (glitterangel) said...

Hope you're feeling better now. Well, I need to sit down after looking at that mess lol! Not good for a tidy freak like me. Sharon #97

I don't care what camera angle -- I love it!!!!! I want it all!!!! Lucky you!!!

Happy WOYWW #82

Joan said...

Oh I am so glad to see your craft room in all it's glory! I get really peeved when I see imaculate rooms that look like nothing ever gets done it them ( thats just because I am such a messy person myself !)

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Totally a bad camera angle, no doubt about it. I'll bet it was the maid's day off too and that a circus troupe came through also. I hate that when it happens!!!

ElizabethR said...

LOL am feeling sooooooooooo much better after peaking at your gaff! Hugs Elizabeth x

Elizabeth said...

Hi Hels, just popping in quickly before the second half of Strictly - yep, your room does make a neatnik like me blanche and my fingers are itching, not to craft you understand, but tidy up - that cat has a lot to answer for :)) Right, I'm off, can't miss a minute. Elizabeth x #66

TangolikeRaindrop said...

What a lovely desk! How great to have the space for an entire room dedicated to craftiness! I am envious! :) Happy belated WOYWW (#71)
