WOYWW #48

OOOOhhh I have now started loving Wednesdays at the fantastic idea of Julia's for WOYWW - it gives you a great time to go and nose at other peoples desks, creations, storage ideas etc! I tried to get to as many as possible last week but not the entire list. Thank you to all of you who stopped by and left a comment *mwah*.

So, after the pics of my awfully untidy desk and craft room last week, I thought it was time for a tidy up - and here is the end result - yes, that is what it looks like this morning!!

So on this pic you can see the newest addition to my craft room - 2 butterfly Martha Stewart punches (yay!) and some absolutely gorgeous butterfly diecuts. I have also moved my buttons and my dew drops to my desk as I thought they were prettier to look at than the black boxes that were there before. The sign at the window is plaque from my sister - its says "A balanced diet means a cake in both hands' - I love it!

Now, see those 3 huge boxes - can you believe I have had them for about 6 months and wasn't using them as I didn't know what to put in them!! One now houses all my ribbons instead of them being in 3 different places, another houses cards that I have made, and the other one has all things for me to alter. All my little black boxes are around these now, so I don't look at them all the time. The canvas on the boxes is something I have made to put on my table at craft shows. There is a pic on the pinboard that my daughter did a few months ago of us as a family - I absolutely love it!!

Lastly, look at what I found when I was tidying up! I don't even remember buying these so this was a nice little find!!

Remember, I have 3 Magnolia Fairytale Stamps up for grabs in my blogcandy - click here to go to the post to enter.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Great room! I love those little jars, too - so pretty. Now that my kids are grown, I've turned their room into my craft room :D

My best tip for storage is for Acrylic unmounted stamps. I've got them stuck onto a clear plastic report cover in which I've sandwiched a pictorial reference card - and then plunk 'em in a binder. Here's my craft space (lotsa neat, organized binders within easy reach. http://cardsandothermadness.blogspot.com/2010/05/carolyns-craft-room.html
