WOYWW, 18 August 2010

Good morning Everybody!

Why is everybody so early??? Or am I just late??? Oh well.... I promised I would be very short today and I promise I will be! I have been doing a lot of housework so my crafting was set to the side - I am working on a card for my daughters boyfriend but to be honest I don't know where I am going with it! I started off with this brilliant idea using some lovely mainly brown papers with a bit of gold but I am not sure about it now - of course I managed to make a really big mess in my craftroom as always...Believe me I can tidy up but when you go from one card to another it does pile up so you end up with 10 cm space....have a snoop then! You still haven't heard about this crazy thing called WOYWW????? Well pay a visit to the Queen of Snoop Julia at Stamping Ground and you will soon find out!
So here is my messy desk from all angles........this is how I started out - not bad - pretty tidy....



 Turn to the right - all the papers I have used and lots more stuff....



Turn to the right  - more mess....on top of that pile there is the card - memory thinge for my daughter which she still hasn't seen ( cause she doesn't have time to come see mommy!! ) so I can't really show it yet ...


and it all ended up like this.....


See I told you - only about 10 cm space left! Huh!!! Got all the boxes and reels with ribbon down to find the perfect one but now I am thinking I won't use it....
Ok I said I would be short today - just one more thing....as I blogged yesterday I will be at the autumn craft show at Ally Pally ( on the Saturday)- coming all the way from Slovenia! So if some of you girls will be there let me know I will put a big sign on with CARDARIAN written on it so you can spot me, ha, ha....not that you will have a problem spotting me as I am quite big!
Ok, Ok I am off now....
Have a lovely day and a great snoop!
Lots of hugs to all of you 
Cardarian

  3. This is tidy - well sort of - lots of good space still left. It's when we get crafting on the floor we have to worry LOL. Happy WOYWW!

  4. If that's the card on the desk, it looks great to me but I know how difficult it can be sometimes putting everthing together - why not just try changing the background paper or one of the elements.
    So sorry I won't be going to Ally Pally but keep us informed of any shows you can make it to in the future. Have a great time while you're there ;-)

  5. I've had trouble getting an ATC together, so I know how hard a card can be. And all the things we get out just to make it happen. I'm really late to the party today. My internet went down at the wrong time. I wish I lived closer, I would consider going to Ally Pally just to meet you and a few other WOYWWers.

  10. Well, that card looks pretty good from here! I always have problems with them too... never sure they are what they should be! Your desk looks organised in its untidyness so you get extra points for that!

  11. oh now I want to come to AP, I went a couple of years ago, it was a fun day. But no money so I am not allowed, have a great time.

    Yes i used your fabric, there was enough to line the first 2 bags, and all your denim has been cut up too.

    I have a pile of denim all pinned together on my desk just waiting to be stitched together.

    Have a great week, if by some miracle I make it to AP I shall shriek from the rooftos so you know I am coming then I shall search you out and hug you till you squeal! lol

  21. Ah D - you and I work in exactly the same way. Decide on one thing and then get everything out until you have a match....works but it makes the table fill up fast! Ally Pally dates are difficult for me, but you won't be alone..I will blog about it, see who else is going too!

  30. Looks like a well lived in crafty space. Wish I could make it to a craft show. I have no one who wants to travel with me. Usually have to drive to Tamps (brrrrrr) or Orlando. My back gives out so can't drive more than an hours drive and still all tight afterward. Oh well, maybe the next one. Have fun, spend lots of money, no no.
