WOYWW #57

Have been doing some crafting but not much to show at the moment as everything I am doing (I always have more than one project on at the go at any one time!) are all in different stages of development and haven't been finished yet but here is my desk at 11pm last night:


sorry its a blurry photo, and also today I will show you my delicious boxes:

I bought the largest one of these from a lovely little curio shop near me and I was so pleased with it that I showed it to everyone I knew, then on my birthday my Mom and Dad treated me to the other two as a surprise gift - isnt that lovely!

Anyway here are the contents which I am sure you are all waiting to see!

This one has my brads in.

This is my journalling box where I keep journalling bits and pieces along with journal and date stamps.

And this is my sticker box - yes I know have loads but does anyone else have a thing for stickers where they have to have them and then doesn't really know what to do with them?  or is that just me?

Thanks for looking and I am hoping to pop by and see all of your desks in the next few days too!  To find out what all the desk business is about go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.com/

I'm so glad you showed what's inside these gorgeous cases. I fell in love with them last week. Very clever storage that looks like everything fits perfectly. Happy WOYWW.

Love your boxes! Lots of great stash in there. You might only have 25 distress inks but their storage is way more cooler than mine!

Ohh what scrummy cases!

Darcy said...

lucky you, they are lovely boxes. I know what you mean about the stickers. I never really see anything nice made with stickers either for inspiration so no idea why I buy them. lol

Chrissie said...

Lovely stash in those pretty boxes. Thanks so much for showing us. Thanks for your comment on my blog too. I still have loads to get round yet.

You asked me about the Graphicus Guild. I'm probably a bit biased as I do love a lot of the Elusive Images stamps and have been to many workshops at Graphicus and now know them quite well now but I do love being a member of the Guild. I joined when it first started 3.5 years ago and still look forward to receiving my Newsletter each month. There are special Guild member offers and product reviews plus tutorials and loads of projects for inspiration. There's also a members only forum on Yahoo which is quite good too. Right, that's enough plugging for them for today, Lol! Let me know if you do decide to join.

I have the same problem with stickers, I use the odd few on layouts and cards but the packets last for ages and I have too many of them!
