My Craft Room Makeover

Oh my gawd! look! Its Wednesday already and Happy Monday along with Tuneful Tuesday has all gone out of the window this week!...Yep its official! I am in one of those moods! You know the kind! I feel very creative and my head has been filled up with plenty of ideas and yet I keep changing my mind about what to do and in the end I get nothing done!
I have been feeling like that since last week!...I have a list! yep a good idea that! write down everything that you need to do....and then realise after no. 49...that, that is really too much for anyone in their right mind to get around to doing and then sit back down again for a rest! ;)

So that has been my week so far...I have just sat down now at my computer desk, ready to start work and I seem to be placing custard creams (shh! don't tell the diabetic nurse!) into my mouth like it was a winter Olympic Sport!....Its not too bad though as I am pulling them apart and only eating the custard cream side...Half the fat! (Max is eating the other bit!) Yay!
Anyway! before you all get totally BORED about the custard creams and all that MILARKIE...I thought I would show you pictures of my craft room it is finished!
Some things have stayed the same....but to organise myself a little bit better I have added that rather 'Horrid' black plastic draw unit into the ensemble! I know, I is rather grotesque...but I have a place for everything now...and my mind (although full of ideas) feels more 'filed'!
As you can see here...below...I have a draw for badges...
...A draw for ribbons...
Lace and all...
In fact I even have empty draws! lol! no pun intended!
The week before...I thought the only way to organise myself was to get a 'LOAD' of Kilner jars, so off to the RANGE I went...skipping and a hopping! (more like skipping and a hobbling) lol ( I did at first write hobberling...but when I looked it up in the dictionary lol! it meant 'A person who possesses feet like a hobbit, short and hairy'! :D) ...Hmmm! moving on!
But to my surprise...when I arrived to the said shop, somebody had had the idea before me! and had already bought I was only able to purchase 12! OMG! I know what you are saying! But I thought to organise myself, I needed at least 24 as I have acquired so many bits and bobs...
I then got home and in between snoozing on the sofa through lunch...I had a brainwave about the drawer see it was hiding in Rosie's bedroom in the wardrobe...she hadn't used it for yonks, so I sneaked into her room and got them out...its like taking part in the Krypton Factor getting anything outta there at the moment! shhhheeesssh! It so needs a Spring Clean...but I managed to get both the units out with only knocking over one cup, two bottles and a precariously placed lamp standing on 17 books! lol!...RESULT!
Voila! my mission was accomplished....and she still hasn't realised yet, that they are missing from her room! lol!....Yes look here how organised I am now...I have even put bits into my jars...although for the life of me! I don't know why I had to put labels on these jars! As that is the whole point of glass jars! lol! YOU CAN SEE THROUGH THEM!...DeR!
So I have a list....and the first thing on it was to list 30 items on my website...well its nearly 4 o'clock now and here I am talking to you ;)
So I hope you have enjoyed my little conversation with you all and I do hope you have enjoyed the pictures I have put here for you...Rosie has just come back from her driving lesson and is demanding all I will have to go!
Hopefully I will get to list some more new items on my website at sometime today!
...and please squint your eyes looking at this picture....
I have tried to hide the drawer units up a bit and shoved the shelf unit in front of it to hide it more!

What have you been up to this week my lovelies xx

Happily Getting Organised

  This week I have tried to get a bit organised...I have finally sorted out my craft room...which is actually my laundry room/walk through/cold house...but I have decided to put all my crafty things in there to make space in here (the dining room) for all my webshop goodies...
...And I think I have it all sorted, it was really nice yesterday, packing up parcels to send from my website in the Dining room, knowing where everything was, really helped and it was a joy to use my new Box in a Box, (top pic) cardboard organiser too!

I ordered this from an ebay seller and rather than having all my pens, scissors and tape in a pencil case...I can now see what I have in front of I think I have solved that messy problem too....hey get me! I'm cooking on Gas this week! lol!

I think I have had the 'Let's get organised' bug because we have had a little bit of sunshine, here in the south...and that always helps doesn't it :)

What have you been up to this week? have you had any sunshine? and if so, has it made you want to finish an old project or start a new one?

Do tell ;)

Speak to you all tomorrow my lovely gals...
Oh and Thank you so much for your kind comments on my last post,

I really do appreciate them xx
(It has definitely put me back on track ;))



Recently I read a post about getting more visitors to your site...I don't really read this kind of thing usually...but somehow I was reading it!...and there it was in black and white....'DON'T BLOG TOO MUCH ABOUT YOURSELF' ...well that was a bit of a shocker for me, as all these years that is exactly what I HAVE been doing!

...And then I thought about the popular know the ones that win awards for the BEST blog in town by the Telegraph and wotnot...and I thought to myself...well they blog about other peeps all the time and even get people to blog for I suppose the comment was right, as these people have a hundred zillion followers!

So I have started to blog about other things and plus I have started to try and blog I suppose when you get into that genre of blogging once a do have to get a little help from other people and then that will 'hopefully' make things a bit more interesting for people.

What with my last post, and the lovely comment by Bohemian, I started to wonder whether peeps would just as sooner look at my pictures and read about the notions that go on in my head (WARNING I AM MAD :D)

And then!..Freddy said to me yesterday...'Don't loose your roots'.

And suddenly I panicked...what am I doing!
I think sometimes it best to not read too much on the internet and by the looks of things I had taken this article to heart...So..

What do you think...after all you are my readers and I value your opinion more than any article, so I want you to tell me what you want from me and what you would like to see on my blog...

I have been blogging for 7 years as you can imagine, I have blogged a lot about me!

Please help my lovelies and tell me what you think...I would really appreciate it :)
