WOYWW 179

Sorry everyone! Late for WOYWW today (unforgiveable! :O) It's been a manic morning and I didn't get time to photograph the 'ole workdesk in advance - epic fail. Still better late than never.


In case you are wondering what I'm prattling on about, every Wednesday crafters from around the globe drop in on each other for a catch up/snoop/chat. If you fancy joining in why not pop over to Julia Dunnit's blog HERE to find out more. One of her 'rules' is that we keep it short and sweet, so just a quick one from me. I've almost finished another tag for a 12 Tags of Christmas challenge and it's time to add trimmings. No tidy rolls for me, oh no. I have a shopping bag filled with all sorts of stuff collected over time. This is why I seem to take for ever to finish something which should be quick to do - too much choice and faffing :)) Oh, and there's a bag that big with buttons in too (inherited from my mum)!! Doesn't seem to stop me looking longingly at all sorts of other trimmings on offer out there though. One quick question to answer. Yes, the tubs in the background contain Indigo Blu Mega Flakes. The spray bottles to the right of them came from Wilkinsons (a shop in the UK) and were a real bargin - they hold my own ink spray conncoctions. OK, promised to keep this short so time to go. Thank you to everyone who wished me luck with my new job. I hope that you all get what you need to make you happy in your lives too. Huge hugs to all, Buttons x

  1. I agree, too many choices makes it hard for me to work at a face pace as well. #94

  3. Better late than never indeed... I'm afraid I'm going to be a "never" again this week. I'm in the process of trying to decide which bits of stash I can manage to transport to Stratford on the train. Workdesk chaos, and pretty much no clothes space in the suitcase now!!

  4. I'm smiling reading this - I can so identify with many of its elements ..."no tidy rolls", "too much choice and faffing", "yet looking longingly at other" .... me to a tee! Nicola x

  10. That's the desk of a creative person - love your bag of trimmings. I have a plastic box similarly jumbled and crammed which makes it difficult to choose sometimes but it is fun searching

  13. Oh I resonate with what you say about too much choice, but that's what we give ourselves don't we?
    I am looking forward to seeing your tag finished, I've still got 2 to catch up with. So glad I am not the only one with ribbons in a plastic bag lol.
    Haven't had time to do WOYWW again this week, had 2 back to back workshops today but lovely ladies.
    Take care.

  14. Hi Buttons. Loving those ribbons and trimmings. Great workspace too.

    My craft space is a bit tidier as I spent a few hours putting things away/ cleaning stamps and mounting stamps etc


    Hope to craft tonite and I am going to be selfish on the weekend as Oh is working.


    Congratulations on the new job. Is it with the local authority ?

  20. I'm too much of a storage hoarder to have my ribbons in a bag but it must be fun having a rummage not knowing what ya might find each time!
    Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog x
    Happy WOYWW

  22. Hi, I have a box full of lovely ribbons all wrapped nicely around dolly pegs and stored in colour order and also a bag of ribbons like yours - guess which one I use the most? tee hee - isnt Wilkinsons a fab shop. Off to the NEC today whoo hoo..... thanks for visiting me yesterday.

  23. Hi Buttons I have an elegant matching bag to your embellishment bag lol! I am sure that digging into yours gives you lots of possibilities and unthought of inspiration. Looking forward to seeing what I have no doubt will be another stellar tag from you.
    Hugs from Australia.

  24. Quite a busy desk you have, looks like tons of fun digging through all that ribbon...I keep mine in a glass jar though so I can see it all the time, it is just as pretty as you say! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment. :) Deeyll

  25. Oh! WOW! what I would do to have a rummage in that bag.....!! Just my kind of thing.
    I love ribbon, lace and buttons, how about Button Necklaces my sister and I have made and sold loads of these.
    Somewhere back in June on my Blog there are some we had ready for sale.

    Good Luck in your new job it is very daunting starting something different.
    Have a Great Day

  26. Your tag challenge sounds so fun! I love your bag of ribbons and things--would love to go through that! Thank you for visiting me too! Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #24

  27. What a tease you are! I want to reach my hand in and sort through that bag of ribbons LOL Mega Flakes - oh that sounds fun...still haven't done gold leaf. That would likely include me collecting a variety of flakes, paste and applicators! Tks for coming my way.. new job. I missed that will have to go looking but congrats! Sandi #37

  29. Hi there - and thanks for showing us that delectable bag of ribbons and lace. I am a real sucker for lace and recently found a lace waistcoat I wore years ago (size 10 - groan) that I will never wear again (too old as well as me being way too big). Cannot chop it up and cannot send it to charity. Told my son, it has to be found a good home when I am gone.
    Thanks for visiting me - have a lovely weekend.
    Hugs, Neet x 43

  32. Glad you squeeked in, Buttons! You do have a bag of fun there. Being blessed with Organized Crafting Disorder, I would love to get my hands on that and organize it for you! Hope the new job continues to go well for you! Thanks for coming by to see me and have a wonderful week! Darnell #42

  33. if you're late posting, I'm even later commenting!

    Sorry I'm late....


    Short and sweet this week, yes, and I think you speak for all of us when you say about not being able to resist looking at other scraps and trimmings when you've already got a lot... LOL

    Thanks for stopping by!

  34. Hi Buttons, I could have sworn I commented earlier but seemingly not - must have been a senior moment. Anyways, love your tiny bag of ribbons - just let me loose in it and I'll have it sorted in no time :)) Elizabeth, later than ever, x #75
