Reorganisation in progress!


I made the decision yesterday to have a bit of a sort and to reorganise all of my craft stuff, no mean feet, but as it's WOYWW I thought I'd show you how things looked this morning...Can you guess where the cat lives?

The inside of the wardrobe that I'm fitting shelves to so that I can store more of my stash

And well this is what my lounge floor looks like today...really should invest in that TV...Like how I prioritised crafting over putting Ben's toys away...
Fingers crossed project reorganisation will be complete tomorrow and I can show you the new and improved craft zone.

Why do I spend more time crafting than cleaning?

Because crafting is fun! I hate cleaning and to be fair its not hard for me to do more crafting than cleaning, but with Jeannie poping in tomorrow, I really should leave blogland alone and tidy up a bit!

So without further a-due today's card is...

I'm so in love with Warren from CWC. I really wanted to buy the stamps, but my spending has been so high with my Stampin' Up! business costs that I really couldn't justify it! I'll just make do with the printed versions that are ready for me to colour.

I've used some of the gorgeous CWC cottontail papers and coloured with my copics. The sentiment is by High Hopes.

As it's Wednesday and I'm talking about my disaster zone, do you want to have a peak as part of WOYWW??? Ok here goes.... eeek!

Creme eggs - nom, thanks mum!

Well you'll probably remember from my previous post that my stuff has a tendancy to migrate out of my craft room. The net result is it then migrates off the living room floor and is dumped on the dining table away from little hands. Oh well, lets see how much I can clear up in the morning as I'm totally pooped! (I work with too many Americans!)

I'm waffling a bit today, so hopefully you've not completely lost the will to live!

I just wanted to let you all know that I've just announced the date of my first workshop and the theme is Men's Cards!!! oh yes!!! I'm already nervous, but it should be a fabby day and I hope some of you can make it. If you'd like to come, just pop on over to my Stampin' Up! blog for all the details (

I've had my eye on this stamp...

since the very first previews and held off purchasing until my visit to Ally Pally.

I had a lovely crafty Ben free weekend and got to play with lots of my new toys. I have a few cards to share with you this week that I'm quite pleased with. Maybe the mojo is starting to return - yippee!!

Last week I was pre-occupied with making a cake for a friend of my son's first birthday party. I have only covered two cakes since he was born. It's amazing how rusty your skills get!

You can never have enough birthday cards and luckily the theme over at LOTV is birthday, so who am I to refuse that kind of challenge!?! Today's card features Birthday Fairy and has been coloured with my copics. The DP is CWCs Cottontail (you'll be seeing more of this paper too)and the sentiment is also LOTV.

I've die cut the leaves using my Stampin' Up! exclusive little leaves die and finished with some WOC flowers and lace.

You know one of the best things about Stampin' Up! is that all of their products are colour co-ordinated and I now always have the perfect shade of cardstock for matting and layering (something that's always been a problem for me!) Today's matted cardstock is Pretty in Pink.

And well here's the cake, I clearly need to practice but Sally was pleased and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the cake and were trying to have seconds.

See you soon.

You are special

Yes you are! You don't believe me do you???

I made this card using some of the amazing goodies I picked up at Ally Pally. Not surprisingly I spent a small fortune and really have to stop splurging. My credit card will not be able to cope with much more.

The stamp is a gorgeous creation from Fizzy Moon and is called Little Messages. I've teamed it with some Paper Salon DP mounted on some SU espresso cardstock. I've made the flowers using my new Marianne Creatables die and used SUs Rich Razzleberry cardstock and SU Designer Series Paper Pattern's Stack from the Subtles collection.

Now I've somehow managed to become a follower of my own blog!?! I know that my numbers are somewhat on the shy side, but artificially inflating them seems a bit wrong don't you think?!? HELP! how do I stop following myself?


And the winner is...

gocannuksgo!!! Apologies for this post being later than promised, I seem to be loosing all track of time at the moment. Please could you e-mail me your addy and I'll pop the goodies in the post to you.

As there was only 3 entries into my candy, I'm going to send both Jeannie and Mary a little something too. You're both absolute stars and I really value your friendship.

I have a card to share with you later *gasp*
