Wednesday again! And a lovely day it is here too - the sun is shining, we have a blue sky - and here's what's on my desk this morning.
I've been organising my humongous ribbon collection ... and baker's twine, and cord, and fibres! As you can see I've simply wrapped the ribbon, or whatever, round sheets of white card - colours sorted alphabetically - and slipped them into plastic inserts. They are then filed into some inexpensive but pretty ring binders found at one of the nation's largest supermarkets. Three ring binders, to be precise! It's shameful to have so much ribbon, etc., - hoarding at it's worst!!! During the process a drawer, several boxes, and not a few of those hanging up thingies, have been emptied/cleared/removed - the craft space is looking a lot less untidy than it did.
I've still to sort out a wee box of fibres ... later ... then it's back to cataloguing the stamps. A job I wish I'd thought of from the outset, but then it's easy to be wise after the event, and I certainly didn't think that I'd ever invest in more than a handful of stamps. Beginners, be warned! Mine, may be a modest
hoard collection but it's proving difficult to keep track of what is where.
To the left of the binders is a wee pile of photos and a sketch - the next scrap page project. At the back, on top of the usual
mess crafting necessities, there's the latest issue of Craft Stamper - you can see the brilliant free stamp lying beside that much needed cuppa. I can see those little people being very usefully employed on scrap pages :)
That's it for today - short and sweet, just like Julia likes it. Julia who? Julia Dunnit, of course, the brilliant instigator of this weekly desk fest. Hop on over to the Stamping Ground and join in, if you don't already. Once I've linked up, I'll be popping into to check out as many desks as I can ... I may be some time :)
Take care everyone and have a very happy WOYWW.
