WOYWW - it's looking better

'm not feeling quite so ashamed this week as I have made some headway with the tidying. Sorry for shocking so many of you last week ;)

I have had to move my room around so that the drawers my papers and card blanks are in are next to the radiator. I discovered damp in the bottom drawer so I really think I need the damp proofing to be sorted as this room was only done recently and the other rooms have bits of it. I'm waiting to find out if I can get a grant for it.

Anyway, changing the desk and drawers around has enabled me to get the printer off the desktop which gives me loads more space. No doubt in a couple of weeks that will mean more room for mess, but at the moment I'm being good.


The tags on here are the start of my project for Bubbly Scrumptious next week. You can see that I treated myself to an ATG glue thingy after having a play at Hazel's. It's much lighter than I imagined it to be so I'm very happy.

Even the space behind the desk is looking tidier. I was ruthless and chucked a lot of rubbish out and got things into storage bits. If I can get a grant for the damp, I'll be able to get some shelving to stack things better than that little table.

Have a mooch over to ~{Julia's Blog}~ if you want to have a good rummage through other crafter's workspaces, but I ought to warn you, it's addictive!!

great collection of pretty storage boxes.
It's my turn to shock everyone this week. I've been too ashamed to post for ages, but I've had a go at tidying up.

Paula Gale said...

Wow Kaz - you do have some stuff don't you???

Thanks for popping over to my blog - yes, the shelving is from Ikea - so was the desk - you buy the top and legs separately and only worked out at £21 - bargain!!!

I can't tell you how lovely the poppy picture is, its making me feel all squishy inside to think I actually own it :O)

Linby said...

Kaz you are a STAR - thanks for the link would never have found one so quickly otherwise. On sale too with free P&P! so bought three refills whilst I was at it. Just got back from being discharged at the hospital so this is a great bonus. thanks so much.
hugs

ooh I really really must get myself one of those ATG things - I always mean to every time I see (and use!) one but never quite turn thought into action!!

Sam said...

Hiya, me again!! Saw your 3M link on someone elses WOYWW blog and have now actually bought an ATG!! Yayy!!! Good deal too I thought! Thankyou.

LadyBug said...

isn't it lovely how a good move about can spur a clean up and sort out :) i so love those black and white storage baskets/boxes you have I need something prettier than i have for my expedit. I wonder if they would fit???

Angelnorth said...

Noticed your ATG straight off - fab aren't they?! Hope you can get the damp sorted soon, not ideal in a room full of paper :o(

Kathy said...

Looking good Kaz! One day, if you get those new shelves, you might even be able to sit on that chair....

Honestly, P for Procrastinating? As if. Well I suppose it sort of is:
AWUMP = Avoiding Writing Up My Project!
for Thursday's Bubbly Scrumptious, in this case as you probably guessed!

Janice said...

Gosh you can see the chair properly now, why have you got stuff on it, it looks like a lovely comfy chair adn possibly even one that has an integral footrest. I'm coming to get it if you don't start using it!

I like your chair it looks really comfy and the cute penguin. You look to be well organised with pretty boxes.
Your Art Calendar pages are fab I love the fact that you are comfortable with wonky edges to your squares. Your February pages are so creative why can't i think of something like that. Pat xx
