WOYWW #49

Yay it's Wednesday again! For some reason this past week has gone by very slowly for me.

Okay I said I would show you my embellishments and ribbons - here they are. I'm sure a few of you will have a chuckle at how neatly arranged and labelled they are - can't help myself *blush*.

First pic is the whole shelf/unit thingie that sits directly above my desk - it is exactly the same length as my desk. All those little jars contain blingy bits, pearls, flowers, brads, dew drops, eyelets......

Then a bit of a closer look at the right side, my inks and caddy with the all important tools I can't live without are on my desk directly beneath. The green boxes contain my dies and embossing folders. The pink bag has paint and brushes for off the page stuff.

And now the left. That cute little fairy card box from Phoenix holds finished cards that I haven't already sent on or given away.

Now had I taken pics on Monday evening you'd have all been shocked.My desk was a total mess - card stock and scraps everywhere, two cutters, loose ribbon, stamp sets askew..... I was preparing for a class and there were bits absolutely all over, I'd even spread on the floor around me. Promise to show you the 'messy when crafting' me sometime soon - just have to time it for a Wednesday I guess lol. So next week it'll either be messy desk or a peek at my punches :o)

To find out all about WOYWW go over to Julia's Stamping Ground and check it out. Be warned...it's very addictive and you'll be snooping at all sorts of desks and blogs - super time consuming but oh so so so much fun.

  3. Hi Annmaree ~

    Thanks for your lovely comments :o)

    The caddy is a Making Memories brand. They are more popular in the US but you can pick them up in Australia. I found mine online, although can't remember which craft store it came from - do a google search. Expect to pay between $80-100 - do shop around because it's a big price difference.
