Ssshhhh... Sneaky Peeky's....

... this is probably going to be the shortest post ever seen on Ink On My Fingers... because... I am busy sampling (ooh, I sound like a DJ or somefink) I have had a splendid time in the Room of Trash (yep, still bad, getting worse by the hour... more of that in a mo....) Anyways... I wanted to show you a couple of sneak peeks of the samples that I have been doing... A whole lotta lovelyness in the form of Studio 490 stamps, Art Parts and Clearly For Art... mmm... yummy!

So... the Room of Trash. Well, yesterday was a right old hoot... many thanks for so many inventive suggestions for tidying this old pigsty... I have to mention the very first comment from Lisa... here's what she said

OK, I can make you the proud owner of a clean and tidy room with very little effort. Follow my instructions to the letter.....

1. Get a number of large cardboard boxes

2. Heave everything on the floor or not in it's rightful place into the boxes

3. Seal the boxes

4. Post them to me.

Voila! Well...... a girl's gotta try eh?

And Helen said this:

Your room looks fab as always. How about an "open house" and we'll come and help you - ahem - tidy it... Failing that, put on your red shoes, click your heels and....
Love your candy - thanks for the chance to win!

And Jacqui said this... which made total sense... and... goodly advice, don't photo the floor!

Sadly there is only one way - get on with it :-)) - though it'll just all come back again so not to be undertaken too often - the floors of most craft rooms are - i suspect - health and safety hazards - mine certainly is - but usually hidden from view in all photo shoots

And the most inventive from Viv's Visuals (honestly, this made me hooooot!)

Wot a nice tidy room Hels! I tidied my space and tidied away my mojo with it... so keep the mess is wot I say cos otherwise u won't be makin'anythin'! Alternatively, you could try leaving the lights off and wearing night goggles to navigate to your desk. Once sat in your chair you can just turn your back and then you won't see it....take night goggles of, turn on lights get creative. When bed time calls place said night goggles back on, give the SAS a ring (cos they're very good with ropes and extracting people from bombed areas) and they can come and rescue you.
Happy Days! x

And from Pixie Camembert (cool blogger name huh!!) who said this (brrrilliant excuse!)

Hi, Hels.
My method of organizing/straightening/cleaning is very simple. I go buy MORE stuff. I didn't say my method works...but it's my method and I'm sticking to it!
Thanks for the chance to win!

So... this was supposed to be a short post... well, it sort of it because I didn't do all the writing... I will just remind you that... I have some candy up for grabs... HERE is the post you will need to leave a comment on - winner drawn and announced next Wednesday 18th January...

And finally to Elizabeth ... thank you for your very detailed answer to my problem, I am going to do this as soon as I can... tis a fab idea...

Actually, THANK YOU to every one of you who made a suggestion/left a comment.. muchly appreciated!!

Am deffo off now, I have just looked at the clock, it is 04.27... yikes... I was supposed to be in bed an hour ago (Grim is on stoopid earlies so I go to bed when he leaves for work... I like crafting at night so it works well... but... ) Thanks for looking... and for all the funny comments yesterday... TTFN!
