WOYWW #197

Good morning friends.
Gosh, Wednesday already. Can you believe it? Time for the weekly round up of international desks hosted by Julia of Stamping Ground. One of the most addictive weekly events in blogland! So why not join the party if you're new, just follow the link HERE
Well, here is my desk this week. Not a huge amount going on as I've still got issues with my wrist though it is definitely on the mend for which I am grateful.

 So here is the overview. The stamps are waiting to be sent to their new home from last week's giveaway, the results are at the end of this post.
 So, details..... The tag is finished and ended up in my journal. The colours just seemed to fit really well together.
 The eagle eyed among you may have seen that my drawers have finally received a bit of attention! All the bits of playtime with the gelli plate ended up on there, then you can see the speech bubble pads, they will be used as a label on the drawers, perhaps, or maybe not.
 Then I re discovered these charms while sorting things out so they are waiting to go somewhere I won't forget!
 Thought you may like to see what's inside a couple of the drawers; this has spools of ribbons and bakers twine.
This has my floral trim, zips and lappies (crocheted little cloths/mats) Everything nice and tidy for a change! The other two drawers hold, ribbons, fringing, wools and fibres.

So there is my little tidy world today, though I'm sure it will not stay tidy too long!

Now for the winner of my stamps from last week; thank you for all your kind words about them. Unfortunately I can only pull one name out of the hat and that person is................Drum roll...................

Fiona (anubis1) Congratulations - Please email me your snail mail addy so I can get them off to you!

Then, just because I could, I pulled another name out of the hat to receive a surprise stamp from me and that person is................... Helen of Stamping by H - again please email me your snail mail so I can pop it in the post!

If I have not heard from you in a week I will re draw names so be quick LOL

Have a great day folks.

I love your desk Neil, always full of beautiful goodies and great art journal pages! Your drawers at the back are just fantastic with your own personal touch...LOVE it!! What about using blackboard labels for the drawers? That way if you change what is in them, you just have to wipe off the chalk and rewrite! Happy WOYWW :-).

Hi Neil, this is my second attempt to post a comment, it had a funny turn with me this morning. Glad to see you are keeping busy, even if you are not crafting as you want to. I love tooting in people's drawers! Your ribbon drawer is so tidy. Hope your wrist is better soon.

All looking good Neil. Your drawers look fab! My desk is bare today, went to footy last night so very little will be done and a bare desk is a bit boring! Take care Zo xx

Hi Neil,

The tag really does fit the page perfectly! I liked sneaking a peak inside your drawers. Nice and neat, if only for a short time.

Congrats to the winners!

I am just loving dressforms at the moment. And you do make me laugh. "Just because I can" :) Lovely desk, and thanks for the sneaky peek in your drawers...humm sounds a bit rude, that.

Julia Dunnit said...

That was my first thought - look at Neil's drawers! They look grand..and amazingly, I have some of a product that you have too - the speech bubble pads - so I'm prolly not about to achieve art like you do! Love the journal page..the tag parts have more blatant bright colour than I've seen on your desk for a while, I like it so much!

Maisie Moonshine said...

Looks to me like you've been filling your drawers with fab stash from TK Maxx who seem to have plenty of American Crafts stuff at the moment. (In Stafford anyway) MMx #39

Annie said...

Lovely colours you're using. I love a bit of organisation in amongst all the chaos so I enjoyed seeing all your haberdashery items in their own drawers. I also have drawers for my fringing, lace and trims! Keep up the good work - Lucy #24 x
