WOYWW - still tidy

Yep, the room is still tidy, which may be due to me not being here last week!! As you can see I'm die cutting thousands of flowers. Well it feels like thousands. I'm still working on a project that has taken me ages so far it seems. I'm getting there though.


I'm not sure if we're still swinging (!) so I'm going to show you inside my drawers anyway. On my organising 'to 'do' list, I will be sorting my wooden stamps as they are all over the place at the mo. I've put the ones I've not used for ages in another drawer to make room for the newer ones. This stack of drawers (from Ikea of course) is on the desk as it has my fave Stampotiques (which almost have a whole drawer to themselves now), most used inkpads and greeting stamps.


This set of drawers are next to the desk and have a selection of flowers, greetings and other ones. The bottom drawer of the other unit is full of embossing stuff and the two closed drawers have scraps of paper in them - which will get sorted some day so I can buy new stamps to fill them!!


I'm working on the idea that if I post this early enough, I'll be able to keep up with the other WOYWW desks via ~{Julia's fab blog}~. It's turning into quite a cult thing now and there's loads joining in. I think we just like being told it's good to be nosey and know that nobody minds if you have a rummage!

Very, very organised. Love the look of those drawers. Looks as if you'll never cut another flower again after this project (whatever it is!)

Linda Elbourne said...

Great drawers ... but then I knew they would be ;0)
Are you managing to keep up with all the desks ... it is turning into a full time job :0)

Julia Dunnit said...

Hmmm, your stamps are astonishingly clean and ordered. It must make you gasp when I talk about my less than monthly clean up! Lovely to visit your desk, am starting to realise quite how organised you are..your die cutting even has a method, huh!! Am going to re-link you back at my space, your original link goes to March 12th. x

That is what I call order, I love your stamps all tucked away in their neat "beds" And I must say they are lovely too - I looked at that card with the Stampotique bird - soooo wish I had that one! Lovely stuff!

Carmen said...

First of all, can I just say, OMG I love your new header! It's flipping amazing!

Secondly, thank you for your lovely comment on my blog yesterday, I do hope your niece manages to quieten that voice. No matter what end of the scale it's horrible isn't it? My daughter - the eldest, is a stick with boobs, literally, but she has started saying how fat she feels so I reckon I will have to keep an eye on that. It's so horrible :(

Now t your desk, I love those drawers! We are off to Ikea next week so may have to have a shufty for those. You'll be pleased to know I'm gradually filling my desk up with baskets and containers - it'll match yours one day! :D

Hazel said...

I missed coming here yesterday, but glad I came now to have a peep in your drawers - very organised x

Kathy said...

Ooooh just peeping into your drawers, Kaz.....

Liking the sound of this flower project, I wonder what it could be?
