...and this is what happens when a Holiday weekend starts off very wet....
I must 'crack on' today, lots of photos to share and crafting to be done on my day off..I have a lot of crafty catching up to do!
However, before I go on with my WOYWW post, once again thank you for your comments yesterday and for popping over to Sam's blog and leaving a comment there too...all so much appreciated I assure you. I love reading them all.
WOYWW 260 - Happy 5th Birthday WOYWW!
I haven't shared my desk for a few weeks, but am pleased to be back today and looking forward to sneaking a peek at some of your desks later! If you don't know what WOYWW is all about - it's a chance to share what's going on in our crafty space courtesy of the lovely Julia...click here to find out all the deets. Thank you Julia for this wonderful idea and long may it continue..I value so much the lovely friends I have made through craft and blogging.
So - as far as crafting was concerned this past long weekend was a bit of a wash out, BUT I did (with Tom's help) get a lot achieved in rearranging the craft room, which I have promised him is for the last time :).
Everything, I mean everything, was removed: some of it is still holidaying in the spare room. It was cleaned, dusted and aired and then we changed the furniture around and brought in one or two bits from the summerhouse. It is quite a small room, but now I have a work/computer desk, a sewing desk, ahem...a die cutting station and a desk that at the moment is still full of clutter. There is still a long way to go..once my stamps are sorted properly there will (I hope) be more room on the shelves; my card stock needs a good tidy and so do the cupboards, but it's a start and I already feel more 'comfortable' working in here.
Here are some photos...sorry about the quality, the light was so poor today :( and in case you notice the time on the clock, it stopped when we moved it so I need to investigate... I took these photos at 8am this morning!

plus my stamps to use today
Those of you who follow me regularly will know I am also lucky enough to have use of our little Summer House for all my altered art stuff and that I have been on the look out for some old office furniture to 'shabby chic' and use it there....you will also know that I found this old desk going for a song..well it was delivered on Saturday and is now in our lounge waiting for some fine weather so I can work on it outside...it looks pretty sad now, but I have plans...
Finally, on Julia's blog yesterday she talked of customised phone covers...so I thought I would share the one that has been keeping my phone safe for the past year..yes of course, our hens take centre stage! Sadly we have lost our sweetheart, Penny in the last few months but it's a lovely reminder of her!
That's all for today, have to get some crafting achieved today...Happy WOYWW everyone!
Love and Hugs,
