WOYWW 29th September

Morning all you WOYWW'ers, hope you are all well.  Time for another spot of nosing but if you are new to this then pop over to our esteemed leader, Julia HERE and you will find all the details you need.

This picture was taken on Tuesday afternoon as I did not plan to do any crafting after this as I have a pile of ironing calling me, well screaming at me actually.  Well my desk, as usual is pretty tidy, but you all know me by now and know that's just the way I am.  There is a couple of spools on my desk which are for my next DT piece for The Stamp Attic and will be posted after this, they were great fun to make.  I also have a few spare die cut gadget gears which I will use on another project at a later date, no wastage here LOL.  I also have the same two Christmas cards on my easels from a couple of weeks ago, still not managed to complete them, time just keeps disappearing on me.
Towards the left of my desk I have my new paint brush box which I managed to find in an antiques emprorium place and I love it, but I do need to find it a better home, in fact I am in the mood for a swap around in my craft room, I'm itching to re-organise, just need some more of that valued commoditiy....TIME.  Well I am hoping to visit a few more desks this week as I am giving myself some relax time today, well after the ironing that is.  Have a good day all,  Tracy xx

Clear desk, clear mind.

I adore your antique paint brush box, what a find that was.

I can't wait to see your DT pieces. Will pop back later.

Have a lovely relaxing day!

I suppose you know, but just in case you don't, the first comment of the day is hidden amongst some typing already on your blog.

I am REALLY curious about those spools, so will be back a bit later. Now who in the world IRONS, unless it's to straighten out tags, or get rid of EP when doing faux batik? Guess you're a better person than me (grin). Happy WOYWW anyway and don't iron too long.

Can't wait to see the spools, I have some ready to play with!

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

The more people get used to creases the less ironing needs doing.......
Or as my A level teacher pointed out if you get it out of the machine real quick and hang it up then no creases and more crafting!

Neet said...

Fab paintbrush storage and I love being tidy too - in fact I would have to mess up to get it looking real busy as I do tend to put things away when I have used them. #44

Lothian Crafts said...

Hi Tracy I went and had a look at your spools post they are fantastic. I had thought the top was a sun dial till I got a closer look and realised its a clock face.

Love all that wonderful storage and you are so neat and tidy. Good luck with the Ironing - I HATE it but luckily have trained my ears to NOT hear when it is screaming at me.

I am so jealolus of your desk!! Were the units custom made? x

nerllybird said...

Hi, I noticed that you left a question for Julia about scheduling your blog post. I'm on tyepad so don't know if it works the same way, but there are three steps for me. First of all I click on 'publish on..' rather than just 'publish'. Then I get to choose the date and time for publication, and then finally I have to click on the 'schedule' button. Maybe you missed out the final step? Or maybe I don't know what I'm talking about, lol...Helen (46)

Ohhh Snap said...

I can't wait to see what you make with those spools and gadget gears! I have the die, but haven't had a chance to use it yet. I need to use it soon, so I can play with my Tim Holtz rosette die when that comes in :D. I'm trying to use things I have before I bring more in lol. I said trying :D.

Craftgirl said...

I never seem to have a clear desk like you. The paintbrush holder is fabbo

Sherry said...

I love the storage units above your desk - they look really smart and so useful too! I keep thinking about a reorganisation of my craft room too - but too busy crafting, browsing blogs (and ironing!) to get it done!

Moy Yin said...

Thanks for visting my desk. I totally agree that you are very organised too. Your use of space by the window with those shelves units is really clever.
