It's Wednesday!

Well this is what my dining room table looks like this morning!

Those black keys are big heavy metal ones - a bargain at £2.99 from Homebase and yes you spy a new sizzix alpha, tissue tape, tiny attacher and Magnolia magazine there (thought I deserved a little treat!).  The orange box now houses all my distress inks - I made it yesterday - the piece on the top will actually be attached on like a lid so that I can transport them easily to and from a crop etc as they kept falling out of my Whittards tea box!  At the back you can spy the Bind It All (used to make the aforementioned box), a bag of Christmas cards I am working on (all the same design as the ones I am making in my November workshops) and the little PaperArtsy house which I am hoping to work on a bit more today.  Morag came round to scrap for while last night hence me playing at the table and leaving it like this just in case I do get chance to play today! but as both children are going to my Mom and Dads and OH is working from home I might just cave in and do some housework!!  We shall see!!

So who is going to Hobbycrafts at the NEC next week then?  I am very excited (as always!) to be going to shop on the Thursday but I found out yesterday that I will also be helping out on the Crafty Devils stand demonstrating the Big Shot so if you are visiting on the Saturday and/or Sunday come along and say hello!  Hopefully I might get to meet a few of you at last!

I managed to get around to 103 desks last week - here's hoping that I do at least the same amount this week too!  Have a fab week everyone.

Thanks for looking and if you want to join in with the noseying around of workspaces pop over to Julias.

Ooh - must find a Homebase as I love keys. The box you made looks intriguing - would love to know how you made it.
Have got my award on my blog - now need to pass it on - thanks so much - it really cheered me up no end when you nominated me.

Oooh, it looks like you and your friend must have been having lots of fun at your dining room table!
I also am curious about the box you made for your distress inks. Mine are piled in a plastic bin and I need a new place for them.
Thanks for the peek!

I don't think there'll be much dining going on at that table somehow!

You must let me know how you get on with the tiny attacher as I've been thinking of getting one

Your dining table looks fabulous. You couldn't improve it with a banquet! And the fact that you're making your storage solutions quite takes the cake!

The box you made is really clever and will hopefully stop your inks falling out.

Doone said...

i wanted to do the NEC but all my craft money has gone to my student son at Uni so he can stay warm and not starve - with the remains going to the 17 year old who now is learning to drive ....

darn it why are there no little jobs for the boys these days so you can have them pay their own way?

if i win the lottery I shall come see you

You have some serious crafting projects staring at you, as well as some pretty awesome tools and embellishments. Not sure what NEC is, but I know you'll have fun.

Thanks so much for the sweet words you left on my blog. I'm still moving slowly, but trying to start visiting people who visited me. Happy very belated WOYWW (# 15).
