WOYWW 143......Shock ,Horror....It's Tidy....

Oh my i hope your sitting down as boy you in for a wednesday again so time to snoop around the craft desks of the world and see what everyone has been upto.So first pop along visit the Boss Julia and join in with this wednesday madness it's fab and addictive!

Yes i have actually done it the room of stash my craftroom is now tidy heard right it's these photos ive just taken this evening to show you how clean my craftroom is and is going to STAY that way!.

There's no push to the left ....yeah no pile clear ,clean and tidy

No Push to the Right either Omg i can hear you say the girl has done it!Yep shes' done it!!!and still no mojo.....Not good is it ,ive looked in every box ,space and no be found .Just have to wait for my Tim Holtz compendium vol 2 to arrive maybe i shall find my mojo in there!

Above piccy is an old spice rack thats been there awhile just not tidy or neat before.Now i have my Distress bottle inks and sticklers.In front of that my scorpal tape and my pen and tool holder.My light has my pocket watch few clips hanging.

This piccy above is of the far side wall housing my draws ontop draws items ive made and lucky enough to win.My vagabond and set draws with charms /ideology bits in .Along from that my chest and frame i was sent with basket flowers hanging from the wall.I also at long last fixed my board to the wall which at the moment has my tags from tims 12 tags and Funkie junkies tags from dec2011.The piccy below still the same side but showing my carousel all tidy.Plus my stamping folders.

This is my paper shelf below with my jars flowers colour coded. Also altered Paint tin which holds my small roses ,leaves and other bud flowers.Ontop of that is a hanger which i received in my craftbarn candy i won before christmas .Yes i had forgotten about it and boy did i get shock when i found this box under the desk full of goodies id won from the craftbarn which i had forgotten i hadnt put away.My two Tim Holtz cases, large full of distress inks,stains,glimmer mists ,paint dabbers ect.The smaller one is have to say full of more ideology bits n pieces as well as charms.The small red box you can see has got a couple of Easter creations i never finished from last year ,and some empty bottles i need to wash out so i can reuse.

All the draws have been emptied sorted and i just have 1 more to sort through thats my Tim Holtz ,vintage ,emphera and steampunk draw,which is jammed packed full.
I don't think ive done too bad as ive had his rotten tooth ache on anti-b's now go back next week to dentist.But sticken cold i just can't shift now left me with sore chest!Never mind .

Friday we got called into Sophie's school for meeting and was amazed at the way they treated us for once !(only since the Gp spoke on the phone nd sent letter)We have now got the opd through to see the consultant on 19th march .Sophie misses school and it was deceided that she would go back 2 days aweek if she was feeling ok?that would be tuesday and friday .Also she would only have 2 lessons in moring and then have sleep/rest time and 3 further lessons.Well yesterday she felt upto it, so she went but by 11am she was absolutely shattered but carried on for whole day even if her form tutor told her she looked pale and ill and shouldnt be in ...that realy cheers you up.Since arriving home and having bite to eat .Since 6pm she is fast asleep on the sofa where i am leaving her.

We had to go get a pair school trouses saturday couldnt believe she's gone down to size 8 from 14-16.This does concern me the amount shes loosing and how ghastly she looks .All we can do know is continue with meds and await the outcome on the 19th .Not long to go i surpose as 1st March tomorrow think i slept through's praying March is the turn and we have some good luck coming are way ..i live in hope!
Have wonderful wedensday .I have had mass clearout and have some items for sale cheap,and most new on my blog HERE if interested and email me as items selling fast will delete once sold.

Will try and get round you all this week i promise think managed half last week amidst my tooth ache and clearout!

Brenda and Shaz your candy is in transit sorry een late just havent had much time .Watch out soon my blogoversary candy is coming up and oh boy treats for you!
Love n hugs

Woyww......Not just on the Work Desk........

Well it's wednesday yet again time seems to fly by so quickly.That means wednesday time to travel the world of craftiness.We start from the creator herself Ms Julia's blog Well what a cold and snowy week yes still looking for my mojo under the remnants of snow lying about.Still no joy.Even with the fab news of Tims 12 Tags of 2012 starting nope nothing .i have entered the tag i made before loosing my mojo.See post below!

So no more room to push to the right or push to the left !just drop to the floor!So had this great ,fabtastico idea that was about time i sorted my craftroom out ....Yep you heard well the piccy below is where one has started to sort through the corner to the right of my desk.That was till i got this cracking alien growing out the side of my not a zit be happy if it was ,another tooth abscess.Well gone the spring clean and i havent even started yet .But when you see the following piccies..... boy have i got along way to go.Im hoping all the stuff i forgot i had will spur my mojo back into full flow..... Ive started so i will finish hopefully by weekend.....
My desk space to the left of my desk you can see my Tim Holtz cases,cold cuppa coffeeand basically no desk to work on there is craftsheet under there

Under the desk

Then i have to start on the back wall Poor old Vagabond covered up basically top of these draws dumping ground at the mo..

Bit further along the wall to the end where my carousel which is overflowing also

So as you can see i have a fair bit to tackle but i shall get there.As i can't stand the mess these elves made scandless how they come just take over.Anyways i hope your desks have more productive creations than mine today.I will get round you all hopefully after dentists but then again prob only give me anti-biotics and started taking them as had some left over .So may just give couple days till they start to work then go.Have fab wednesday.Stay safe take care.

Love n hugs

From Tim Holtz seasonal set.I then stuck that to the larger doilie die cut.,added some red weave.Distressed the die cut heart that was also in my DT package.Used the same distress ink and then stamped in black arcchival the Love,Love Love stamp from the "LA Compagine des elfes"which i totaly love.Added few buttons and beautiful a flower from The funkie Junkie esty. shop. Stamped in the in Red festive berries ink LoveStamp from my stash,onto a Tim Holtz Ticket Attached to the flower .To finish off added loades red pink ribbons and raffia from my stash.the cherub charm was from the works. I am also entering this into Tim Holtz 12 tags 2012 .
