WOYWW 'week 61'

Not much and the Bermuda Triangle..........

Camera  batteries have decided to give up the ghost on me this morning so no desk sorry........so I thought I'd show you a book I made for my friends birthday last week - she has real trouble remembering birthdays so I thought this would be a good idea........
and here's the inside....

and now for the "Bermuda Triangle" - For those of you with a neat and tidy disposition look away now!!! I live in a bungalow and about 2yrs ago we converted one room into two so I could have a craft room and because of the hall way I ended up with a triangle space in my room and this is what it looks like......
.........a mess!!! The drawers have my coloured card and paper and  the rest  needs to be sorted. I must get DH to put some shelves in there.
Thank you for all the lovely comments last week, off to work now so I'll see you later or over the next few days!
Have a great Wednesday and happy snooping!

xx


P.S. If you've arrived here on the off chance and are wondering what's going on hop over to Julia "Queen of the WOWWers" blog to find out what it's all about. Link is on the side of my blog.

Oh Andrea, don't !! Shelves mean sorting and they they start to understand how much stuff you've got!! I like the idea of a triangular room...do you eat triangle sandwiches in there?

Andrea, we all have a few of those areas that need a bit tidying. Glad you made me feel better. Happy WOYWW.

Hi Angela - hope life down the coast is treating you well - not much sunshine here in Wales today !
What's the point of having handy nooks & crannies if you don't fill them !!
My husband says I don't know the meaning of full !!
My attitude is with a bit of jiggling you can also squeezing in a bit more stash !!
Might get to Hobbycraft in Cardiff on Saturday - can feel my purse quivering already !! Have a great crafty week !

Minxy said...

Beautiful gift idea, i should really make one for myself, but mine would be a 'life' one as i'm always forgetting all sorts from birthdays to appointment lol

Lynne said...

Love your birthday book and great craft room.

FlipSyde said...

I can't remember birthdays. I can't remember where the birthday book is that I wrote them all in.
However, if someone was a sweetie pie enough to Make me a birthday book, I'd keep it and use it for sure! Your friend is lucky.
I think your triangle is funny and cool. I like a different space, and yours is neato and cozy.
Hey, also I like the looks and colours of the Sunday Stampers wall hanging. I mean, I Really like the colours. I don't usually work with shades that light, but lately I have been, and I just feel more at home with them - you know?
