WOYWW 171

Good morning everyone. I know you WOYWWers are out there because you appear to sit up 'til the wee hours on a Wednesday waiting to pounce on Julia Dunnit's Stamping Ground blog in order to link your crafty areas. If you have no idea what I am on about at this stage, we WOYWWers take a nosey round the World (quite literally) of fellow crafters' workspaces areas - for more deets go HERE.


You can tell the autumn is well and truly underway - my daylight lamp becomes more essential! Now (in your head imagine a David Attenborough voice at this point) you join me in the natural environment of a muddle-headed crafter. Oh, it may look fairly tidy, but there area at least two projects on the go here - one more inchie and the background to go - and a lot of it is experimentation. Does anyone else find they start with a bit of an idea in their head but no clear direction? That would be ok if, like the wonderous Julie Short I could just go for it and produce three projects at one sitting, but thinking seems to get in the way and everything takes days instead of hours! Then there are those ever-looming deadlines to meet so it starts to get slightly pressured, which is ridiculous really as this is supposed to be a relaxing hobby! Hmmm, a change of approach is required in this craftroom methinks...

OK, I know Julia likes us to keep it short and sweet, and the school run creeps ever closer so I'll be away and dropping in to see as many of you as poss later on. Hugs, Buttons x

  2. Hi Buttons, and there was me thinking that I was the only one who started things with no clear direction.......but at least you do finish your projects, even if you think it takes a while. Your desk does look very tidy but it does have some very interesting little bits on it......Happy WOYWW, Anne x #82

  6. Oh yes we always start with a bit of an idea, in fact, sometimes no idea at all! Great desk full of inspiration. Thanks for visiting us today.

    Love from the bears.

  7. I like your work desk. It's busy but there is still space to craft. I'm not very good at having several projects on the go, but I do go off at a tangent sometimes! Have a good week. Kate x #128

  10. Looks like you're making good progress. I love the look of the metal things, very Steampunkish from this angle.

    Happy Woyww!

  11. Hi Buttons! Cute inchies you are working on. I'll all of a sudden have ideas pop into my head...and yes, I guess I really don't know how or the exact way I'll do something, but the idea is there. Sometimes it takes me a long time to make one project, lol. I don't usually finish things very quickly.:-) Brigita #133

  12. Sometimes I start with loads of ideas and end up with nothing. Other times I plan out an idea and it still ends up nothing like it was meant to be.???? Love the inchies.xx#81

  22. Hi there Buttons, love the look of your desk and wonder what you are doing with those inches??? Hope I am right as they look so interesting.
    Know what you mean about deadlines - and blogging is the same - always in the head and no time to do.
    Thanks for sharing
    Hugs, Neet 17 xx
