WOYWW 71

It's Wednesday again (well it will be when you are reading this)....the week went so fast I almost missed it. I'm cheating a little, this is a Tuesday photo. On Wednesday I will be in a lovely village called Sirince so the desk wont have changed. Sirince is a wine producing village at the top of a very steep climb (by car). Amongst other things it has a lovely jewellery shop (I believe they made most of the period jewellery for Troy - the movie with Brad Pitt).

To join in the desk hop pop over to Julia's blog.

I have been clearing up my craft room in preparation for my family visiting. Here is the evidence, not often it looks this tidy.  My bookcase doubles up as a storage area for my 12x12 albums; craft mags and 12x12 paper pads. My little unit is where i keep the smaller albums and card stock.

It has been a busy week for me, so not much crafting other than a birthday card and the start of a halloween card. Not sure that i like the finished product for the birthday card but until more inspiration strikes this is what i have.
Now to pop over to see what other WOYWWers are doing. Well, I will do when i get back from the road trip! Happy Wednesday!

Carrie said...

Ooh, another tidy crafter...I love it. I love the way you have organised all your paper into colours and that your cupboards are so neat. I get all twitchy when my papers and bits and bobs are all over the place. I am sooooo jealous of all your paper and cardstock. Thanks so much for sharing your pictures with me, you are more than welcome to pop over to my desk if you fancy a peek.
Love
Carrie
