WOYWW - 11/08/2010

Evening All
Well I took photos last week to upload to WOYWW but didn't get chance to post, made sure I posted this week though. I really enjoy this every week and it gives the nosey ones amongst us the chance to peek at others craft rooms. It also makes me realise I don't have enough stash lol although I am sure hubbie would disagree. Julia started this and pop on over to her blog and maybe even join in.



As you can see my desk has seen a bit of action, I bought a few Elybells stamps in her closing down sale and couldn't wait to ink them up an have a play. Not my best colouring work though so I have paper pieced the shopping girl and will be posting later this week.


Different angle showing both my new and old cutters, still getting used to the new cutter although it does cut straighter than the old one.

I wonder are you all like me and buy stash then forget you have it, I found the craftwork cards paper pack that I must have bought a few years ago and thought must use this, but did I, no, put it back in the cupboard without even removing one sheet. lol.

For the neat freaks, me included amongst us, I have now tidied the room as a rather large A1 craft mat arrived and will be taking up residence later tonight.

Ta Ta for now

Oh yes ... I am just like you ... forget what I have bought ... sometimes before I even get around to unpacking it ... oh dear that does sound really bad when I type it out loud :0)

Hi Amanda, YES! Looking at all these blogs on WOYWW emphasizes that I don't have much stuff! I usually recycle book paper and other stuff to make my art. But actually I find that what I do have, I don't use that much either! Patsy from

Yes, I'm another one - buy stuff, bring it home, admire it - out it to one side - find it months later.... Great, isn't it!!

A very creative desk - you have a great pen collection! Yes I do the same too with stash - a nice surprise though to find forgotten treats ;-)

Thanks for visiting - the girl toppers are from the Text Girl sheet by Kanban.

I confess I am the same - or was - with old stash, I don't do it anymore but, the last clear out revealed some shockers! And yep, your WOYWW badge could read 'consistently tidy'. WOuld take me ages to clear a space to put an A3 mat down!!

Daniele said...

I would say you have a lot of tools, pens, and cutters. You may not think you have much, but you are very lucky.

I have a very limited craft budget, so anything I buy usually comes from a thrift store, rather than a craft store. Or I find it in a dumpster. So, no, I don't usually buy things, then not use them. But that's just me, the neat freak (grin).

Sid said...

Nice selection of very useful stash there !!

Minxy said...

Yep i'm another one who does it, only the other day i found a long lost packet of stash, it's good those, coz its almost like receiving little presents lol

Love to see your markers - mine are in a drawer and it is not big enough. Thanks for sharing. Tell hubby a girl can never have too much or enough stash.
