WOYWW Again? Really?

So here we are, ready for another Wednesday of fun... the first WOYWW of September (where is 2013 going?!)

No weird camera angles or positions this week for you, but I am glad they made you giggle.

I was due to be at Craft Club on Tuesday night, it was banner night with sewing machines, but I was late leaving work and didn't have time to go, sadly. Not sure how I'd have got on, sewing and me don't really go together, but it would have been fun trying... probably! Oh well, another time!

So instead of me looking flustered behind a sewing machine, it's more shots of odd parts of my crowded living room/craft room.
 This is the other end of the sofa to what you normally see (!) the blue box (and the one underneath it) holds little used papers, the plastic boxes hold loose glitters, the stripey expanding wallet (it's stopped expanding) holds my 12 x 12 Timmy (and other) paper packs.  the pink boxes hold all sorts of stuff - the one in the foreground mostly idea-ology and Art Parts. the drawers under them... flowers, bits and bobs...

this is next to my"seat" at the computer - a box where my completed tags and things that don't stand up on window sills, get dumped!
That's a bit full too (there are plenty more in the "dining room" (not sure I should ever show you in there.... )

Have a great day, hope to see lots of your crafty spaces!

So what time were you up linking up then? I haven't slept properly in a week and tend to wake around 3-4am each morning. Shame about club last night as I LOVE sewing but don't do it much these days. BJ#17

Had to laugh at the thought that you might not LOVE sewing as much as you LOVE stamping. Now if I loved stamping (paper or fabric) as much as I love sewing (paper mostly), we would make a great team (grin). Now I REALLY want to see your dining room. Happy WOYWW from #2.

Jackie said...

You don't have to sew fabric.... I would have been good to sew on tags and scrapbook layouts ... I'm planning on doing a sewing class just for that reason!

It's funny what makes us tick, isn't it? I love sewing but paper crafting brings me out on a rash!! And you are vice versa...just as well we're all different :-). Are you sure you've got enough stash yet....? ;-)

Neet said...

Just thinking about that sewing of pennants. Would you not have been able to glue them? Might be fun to make some that are glued together - even out of scrapbook paper, especially the ones I don't like. Am sure you have some hanging around.
Dining room next?
Hugs, Neet xx

glitterandglue said...

Is the dining room so very scary that you think we won't cope?? Take a deep breath, hold the camera vaguely still - and go for it - we promise not to be frightened!
Have a great week.

Roberta B said...

Jacqui Chimes said...

I love seeing your 'workroom' every week - you produce some lovely projects

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I didn't realize that you were a living room crafter too. Thanks for showing us your piles and boxes of bits and bobs. I laugh that the expanding file no longer expands. Yep, I understand how that goes. You have lots of goodies. I'll bet they are fun to poke through and find forgotten treasures.

Danie May said...

I'm with you on the not so comfortable sewing front, but like you would have given it a go. It definitely sounds like you have a house full of crafting goodness, and I am sure a lot of us would love to come and play......Have a great week! Danie #25

Nikki said...

Wow you got tons to play with and love the packed pink box :) I agree show the dining room lol

Kimberly Hogan said...

TY for popping by for a visit. You're not alone...I don't do well with sewing machines either. Not for a lack of trying though. Looks like you have some fun stuff in your box of things that don't stand up on window sills. Have a great week. ((((HUGS)))

I think you have enough stash to keep you going into retirement and beyond! LOL It will get straight one day... I am sure it will! Apologies for being so late returning your visit! Annette #30
