WOYWW #69 (titter titter)

Yay its Wednesday and as usual I am languishing in the bottom part of the list, but numbers don't mean anything unless you are adding it after your comment and then its incredibly helpful.  Poor Julia is feeling a bit left out as she has no number, :(  but we all know her, dont we, but if you want Julia, you can use zero, hope that helps.

So quite a few pictures this week for you, thought I would start to show you around my drawers of stuff !!

Shot 1 is a straight on shot of said drawers, on top of the drawers is a spare drawer from a broken set, I love buying these plastic drawers as you can often pick them up dead cheap, anyway the extra drawer has a filing system, yes it does honest, it has masks in it, on no it doesn't I moved them (oops).  It has all my transfers, 3d stickers, flat stickers and also some letter books.  Stored on their side I can pull the drawer out onto my lap and have a good flick through for what I want, I must admit some of the stuff in this drawer is of the strokable status, I love them so much can't bear to use them.  Next drawer has all my embossing powders, which I used to use all the time on everything but havent really used for a while, but am getting back into using them more now.  Plastic bags are distress powders that I shared with a thrifty friend.


Next drawers are slightly more boring, there is the envelope drawer, can never have too many of them and the junk drawer, which has sequin waste, music sheets, pics Ive pulled out of magazines, clothing tags, pattern paper, basically anything Ive thought may come in use again some day.  So thats it for drawer set 1, come back next week for another exciting installment.  LOL

This what I made out of last weeks desk and is a card for my sister in laws birthday, I tried to be a bit more creative rather than just sticking the picture down, so played with Tim Holtz stuff and some Viva gunk, had really messy fingers by the end, but I enjoyed myself.

And finally my desk, have got creative this week and am making a mini book, called "Stampotique Street", (close up below). This is the front cover of a Holtz ruler book so I have about 10 pages to fill inside of it, have started doing this but nothing to show yet of the insides, but the clue is in the name LOL.

So for all that don't know and I can't believe there are that many now, this is the link to find out what I am yapping on about, press here.

Enjoy the journey through WOYWW land.

Lovely card, love all the texture in the background and I always like this image. Great idea for the ruler book, be interesting to see it when it's all finished. Have a good evening, Tracy Evans (18).

Great projects and what a lot of stuff in your drawers.

Your drawers look very organised. I love the card you made - the background is fantastic and I like the colours you've used. I made one of those ruler books a while back - great title for yours and it's looking good so far.

Thanks for the look around!

Oh you crack me up, you've brightened my day. Love the card for your SIL, but I'm addicted to Stampotique, so looking forward to the books progress.

Thanks for sharing your work space & love that card !
I have a ring binder bulging with stickers & things but a file drawer looks like it would work much better ! Will mull over that idea ! Have a great crafty week ! Ali x #41

Loved seeing your drawers. I can't believe you have so many envelopes. I never make cards, so when I do make one, I don't ever have an envelope to fit. That card is lovely and the colors are so vibrant. I'm totally in love with that mini book. It is my style of art, too.

Sorry I'm so late getting here to see your desk. It's nearly time for the next go round. Happy really belated WOYWW from #1 (can't forget my number since I'm sure I left it off the comments a few times).
