WOYWW and a late night.......yawn!!

Well am rather bleary eyed this morning as stayed up late making a album to store swop tags in so excuse me if i go for a snooze soon!
Anyway this is my desk as off VERY late last night,when i remembered to take a picture before i did my normal tidying up as i am rather a neat freak ( i know how strange........lol)
I was following a tutorial which you can find here and using my new boofle papers which are rather cute. On my desk you can see my martha stewart board which i love,new ladybird scissors,uhu glue (go through it by the bucketful) and on the desks pull out board my bin,cutter and album base. You get extra marks if you can spot my homemade stamp a ma jig also made following a tutorial.
And this new piece of fab storage to hold my acrylic blocks and inks pads cost me the grand sum of 50p at a car boot sale. It has also freed up some more desk space :)
Just need to add some decoration to my album once i have woken up and then i will post it to my blog. I have the week of so shall enjoy it looking at your blogs as missed joining in last week but thanks for all the kind words re the death of my cat Otiz,x

  7. Hi Kay,
    Your number was first out of my lucky dip bag this week (can't possibly visit and comment on all blogs)! I love tidy too. I can't work well in a mess, although it does get like that at times so I just have to stop and sort - LOL.

    Spied the Duplo blocks and the link confirms my suspicions. I'll have a look at that later.

    Also your tag store looks great. We have been discussing tag storage on the craft group UKPC mainly due to the fact that my Art Journal is turning into a tag store and others were wondering what to do with theirs. So I'll be checking out that link too.

    Thanks for sharing. BJ #42

  12. Hi Kay. What a great work space you have. I love my distress ink storage, its the best thing ever. My dad made the blending tools and holder for me, which is great as I dont need to change the foam pads as frequently. Love your purchase from the boot sale. We can never have enough storage. Happy crafting and I shall check back next week to see what you have been up to as I have now joined your blog. I love your dog Sam, he is very handsome. Happy Crafting....Annie x

  19. Lovely desk, gorgeous papers, smashing new storage! Well done finding it! I'm very sorry to hear you lost your cat. I know exactly how you feel, having lost 2 lovely kitties on the road outside our house...

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. I can't wait for my birthday so I can start using my lovely new Inktense pencils! What a star my hubby is... The Choc-a-Bloc project progresses slowly and is very experimental, so not sure what it will end up looking like!!

    Happy WOYWW,

  21. Love your workdesk. So very sorry to hear about Otiz, he's similar to my Bertie who I lost in 2009. A white furry bundle who you probably saw in my site. You have my heartfelt sympathies as I know how you feel. Karen 111 x

  28. Thanks for the snoop around your desk. It looks like there lots of fun to be had there! I can't wait to see your finished album.

    I scrolled down and saw your post about Otiz. I'm so sorry. We have a solid white cat that looks just like him. She'll be 18 next month and I dread the day when we will have to make the same decision you had to make. I'm so sorry.

  37. That storage was a great find. There must be something in the air as so many of us are cleaning up and getting new storage. Still can't believe mine, sorry to say it probably won't stay that neat for long, but I know yours will.
    Have a great week.
