WOYWW 199?

Crikey, nearly WOYWW anniversary time, better get making some ATC's... Don't know what WOYWW is? All the low-down is found here  and so is the link up to share YOUR desk.

Not a lot on my "desk" today - a part-done tag, not quite sure where to go with it now...

I took this one from the sofa... new Art Journalling mag on the floor... tag on the craft sheet... pots and pots - or lots of pots you could say - of pens and implements and coffee stirrers - behind them out of which the "reserved for" sign is still hanging, is my scraps box - once more it's overflowing, oh dear.... not much came of that resolution to only keep scraps of a size I could use..ha ha!!

The basket sits on top of one of those cardboard storage boxes which holds stamps (yes more, don't think I've ever shone you inside that one!) The basket holds all sorts of trinkets and bits and bobs - gems, frames, fancy buttons (too nice to use!)

So. hope you've had a good rummage, make sure you leave the place tidy when you go, please - cos it's always so neat here (chokes with laughter)..... I'll catch as many of you as I can, as always! Now, off you go, don't be late, Julia's waiting for you...see you soon.

Thanks for the free rummage - it went well with my fennel tea! The tag looks great, I wonder where you will go with it? Have a great week and thanks for sharing: Lucy #37 x

Ann B said...

Well I've rummaged away and tidied up for you before I left. Hope no-one sneaks back and messes it all up again before you get to see. Oops, spoke to soon ,it's back to normal.
Love what I can see of the tag and card, good colour combo.

Lovely peek at all your doings... I'm sure the tag will let you know where it wants to go soon! I've missed a few, but happy to be back (and with my mother in tow this time!)... Happy WOYWW!

Ah the scraps box...the bane of crafters! I made a background for a card using Hels blocking technique and that used a bit up (then I found some free postcards I could paint over and it all went downhill from there!).

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Yay, sunshine here too!! The cats are basking in it streaming through the windows... I think we'd forgotten what the yellow thing in the sky was!
Lol, glad to see that we need to tidy up after potting around your desk. Will you get cross when yu can't find where we've put your important stuff though?? My son always used to do that if I dared to tidy his room... Grin :)
Hugs, LLJ 59 xxxx

Glenda said...

Am I seeing correctly...are you working on the floor? That would absolutely kill this old lady! Love the tag, it will sort itself out soon and take it's own direction. Happy WOYWW!

Cardarian said...

He, he we all have too much stuff and lots of it is "too nice to use"
I have been away for a while but I am back now!
Lots of hugs,

( I will probably be at Ally Pally on the Saturday will you be there???)

PS - no, no it's my mother, not my mother in law... I don't know many people who'd willingly go and spend ten weeks with their mother in law!! My mum and I spend enough time shouting as it is!!

House of Bears said...

We often make tags then have no idea where to go with them next. We really must buy an art journalling mag, we keep thinking about it then other crafty purchases take precedence!

Waving hi from the house of bears @#96 this week.

Redanne said...

I really enjoyed my rummage too, your space always looks like fun - oh that the old knees would let me down to play with your stash of goodies! The sun is shining here but it is also snowing at the same time - crazy old weather...... Happy WOYWW, Anne x #33

Caro said...

Lots of lovely things to see and your tag is looking interesting so far. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x #73

Sunshine for a moment then whoops! It was gone - and me with LOADS of hand sewing to do and darkness all around. I so need a full day of sunshine and nothing else on my plate - and now you've reminded me of the ATCs...where DID I put those ones in progress......? Oh dear.

Happy WOYWW

Sandy Leigh said...

Oh Helen--I struggle with how big of scraps to keep too! And that includes paper, fabric, felt, and aida cloth. But then I actually use them! So you are doing good. This reminds me I need to buy a new art journal mag for inspiration. Hugs dearest! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #28

CraftygasheadZo said...

I sorted my scraps into a colour order and popped them in a folder, but do I use them? Do I heck! I now have scraps in another place. Bout time I sorted it all again as I keep running out of colours but I know they are in there somewhere! Keep up that fab work lovely. Take care my WOYWW friend. Zo xx 117

~Sue C said...

Gita said...

Your tag looks great -- love the colors you have on there. Also, it looks like another tag maybe off the to left...using Dylusions? Brigita #142

Julia Dunnit said...

What is ity with us...a basket here and there of stuff that's too nice to use...I suffer from this terribly. Indeed, it's pretty much what got me into scrapbooks because the thought of using all the nice stuff and keeping it was very attractive!

Queenie Jeannie said...

Busy, busy, busy!!! I'd trade yours for mine...mine is all picked up but didn't get to any crafting until today!! Have fun!

My name is Cindy said...

Lovely er.. work floor(?) Still can't believe you work down there, makes my old bomnes shudder at te thought!! Happy Easter Cindy #91

lisa said...

I've enjoyed my rummage, Helen. What would we do without coffee stirrers. The best bit of crafty kit and best of all they are free!!
Happy WOYWW

MaggieC said...

Just had a lovely mooch around your space. I still cannot understand how you can work down there. If I tried it, I would never get up again. You are so right about the weather. We had two good weeks last year, since when it has been either wet or cold or both. Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a good week. xx Maggie #17

sandee said...

Loved the wave tag, so awesome! I think crafters are like magpies, we love those pretty things and collect them but don't want to use them cause they are too pretty! lol Would love to plunder through that basket of goodies! Thanks for visiting my desk today, waving hi from the hills of North carolina ♥

butlersabroad said...

Love the blue tag you posted today too, I like the sentiment on it, feels a bit like today for me! You look tidy today, we can see some of the floor!

Hugs

Clare with paint in her hair said...

Would love to have a good rummage there! Know what you mean with the tag, not knowing where to go, I have a few projects in a state of ''dunno what to do now'' limbo.

fairy thoughts said...

Oh Helen I would love to come round and have a good rummage and tidy up for you. But as I always say you can't be creative and tidy. that said I'm just going to have a read of your shaving foam post'
have a great week

sara j said...

Helen thank you so much for your kind words on my blog...I thought I was being kind of big girl about things, but turns out I was/am kind of a mess. Thank heavens for art, and color and play time. Looks as if you've been doing a bit of that yourself. Just love looking around.
