Ok the mess got to me.... it was getting to be really tricky to make anything without loosing stuff I was actually trying to use! Now I just need to organise the rest of my storage a bit better, cuz it's pretty much a hodge podge. Anyhow the tidy was done on Sunday, and included the piles of stuff on the left side of my desk. What you see now is something I have been working on... a stamped image which I have had to cut out as I can't show it yet, and some card and papers in colours I might use with it. The papers are from an Artylicious paper pack which I think you can see in the second photo. I also included a piccy of a cupboard where I keep a lot of my unmounted stamps and a few other bits and pieces.
Thanks for all the lovely comments last week.... perhaps I ought to explain about the wallpaper... When we moved in, that was the wallpaper that was on the walls, we thought OK that can wait to be redecorated...BAD MISTAKE... because the spare room ended up becoming a dumping ground for stuff we couldn't find a space for, we never seemed to get around to doing something with it and then my I got my first computer and needed a place for that....and finally when I took up stamping I needed a craft room! The room still fulfills all of those functions, but as a result I'm sorta trapped as to how to change that wallpaper cuz I have no idea where we could put our stuff if we had to empty things out to redecorate.
Now there were somes questions in amongst those comments last week, so I figured I should reply.
Pam, what I was doing with the trees will be revealed in due course .... but it's something spooky.
Bleubeard and Elizabeth, the white looking thing is a one of those La Blanche foam backed rubber stamps. As for the stamp in tubs... well there's more, check out my third photo today.....all those A4 storage boxs stood on end like books contain more rubbah.
Sunshine Girl, the trees are from an Elusive Images Themeplates called Arboretum: Design-A-Tree. They are bare trees that come with small leaf and flower stamps to "dress" the tree with - if you want a spring, summer or autumnal tree you can have it... or just leave them bare as winter trees. I've put a link in for you cuz I love to enable fellow stampers!
Julia, yes haha.... I adore trees so of course I have a bit of a "tree thing going on" [insert evil grin here]
I hope I have answered everyone's questions, sorry if I missed any out and for writing such a long post. And there you have it, the crazy snoopy fun that is WOYWW - to join in the fun, visit Julia's Blog Stamping Ground - but be warned, it's addcitive!
