WOYWW 31.3.10 - it's not Wednesday AGAIN, surely??

Here we are, another Wednesday!  Once again I have had to cheat a bit with the timing of the pics, owing to my early starts in the morning and my eagerness to get posted!

I have done another couple of swing rounds, although I'm kind of back to where I started, but there were a few extra bits to include.
The blue box contains all kinds of bits of "ephemera" that are too small to store anywhere else, the red ones under the cardboard drawer units are some of my card stock boxes and I'm sure you'll recognise the pile of stamps standing in shot proudly!

and these are some little sectioned boxes with things like brads and small chip shapes that I will use - one day!

I may have unintentionally mislead some of you last week as I had lost this pic of my boxes of cardstock (I saved it in the wrong place on my computer) as I think you thought I'd lost the card stock..... you may agree it would be hard to lose this lot!!  They live just outside the living room and are colour co-ordinated by box (yes, I buy a lot of card stock!!) The drawers on top contain bits of coloured wires, packs of fibres etc. The lead hanging down oh-so-tidily (not) is my camera charger!  They used to stand inside the doorway itself but I couldn't get in and out...!!

Finally for this week is an area we haven''t explored together before - the other side of the sofa!

This is one of my boxes of (mainly 12x12) papers (it's sitting on top of the other one!) I can't quite remember what's in the one underneath as this one is sooo heavy the bottom is sagging and when I lift it off one day soon, everything is going to fall out in a big mess..... what d'you mean, another big mess??!!
You cheeky lot.

I don't seem to have shown you anything ON my workdesk.... lets get that sorted.

(speaks in Aussie accent) "Can you tell what it is yet?"

Well, I have seen various examples of Zentangles around recently and am determined to have a go - so I have prepped a sheet of card so far..... Not sure when I'll get it finished, mind!

I don't think I'll get away with hopping round to see many of you during the day at work, I am going to get caught soon.... so I'll catch up with you as soon as I can.  In the meantime, pop over to Julia's to see what this is all about - and why not join in? The more the merrier!

Ha, ha I guess that is what my stash (flat) will look like in a few years - loads of boxes filled with stuff for crafting....dreaming....lovely!
Zentangling is quite interesting will be back to see how it goes!

CathyC said...

WOW! glad you found your cardstock - pic that is ;-)
my cardstock would fit in one of your boxes. Zen thingies sound interesting, will have to investigate and become a follower to see what happens next.
