WOYWW shocker

 After a couple of weeks away from WOYWW I am back.....with a shameful face!

Why?  Look.......

I know I am a slutty crafter....but really this mess is going too has been like this for weeks now.  I remembered to pick some words from 'Man Bites Dog' cards (not nice ones this week!) but the mess means that I have been unable to craft for a few weeks now!

On the desk are some 3D butterfly stickers I bought for £1 and a wooden house that has 3 wee drawers...only £2 and I thought I could alter it (at the moment its burgundy and has cats on it)... that means it will sit in the box with all those other things I think I will alter.......never to see the light of day again!

BUT.....I decided to have a clean up!!!  I of all people!  It must be hormones, a hot flush or too much cider.....something must be to blame for this unusual action!

So, if you don't have a heart condition feel free to scroll down and allow your eyes to feast on the delight that is my CLEAN desk!



are you ready?.....


Tad da!!!!!!
I scraped the dried paint off the desk, the glue and the multi medium (not an easy job that one!) cleaned it AND my craft mat and cutting mat!  I even cleared out (well sort of) my red box of scraps (some of the scraps had been in there for over 2 years...lets face it, they are NEVER going to be used) am off to craft and make it all messy again!

Happy Crafting

  1. good heavens, that is quite a before and after shot! Enjoy your clean space and I hope you can find everything as I usually can't after a clean up like this!

  2. What a transformation ... trouble is it never stays clean for long. I can't believe you threw out 2 years worth of scraps!!!! Treasures to be kept and hoarded for ever, waiting for that right project.

  3. WOW for WOYWW! What a transformation! Don't think you were 'slutty' at all, just creative and busy and side tracked and ... and ... just like us all.
    Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet #21 xx

  4. Sometimes the head are just empty - no mojo- no creativity. It comes back, give it time and clean desk always helps..

  5. Blimey, what a transformation - did you have to have a lie down and stiff drink afterwards?? Lol!!

  6. Awwwwwww and there was me getting all ready to dive into all that creative stuff on your it would be kinda like diving into an empty pool!
    Happy WOYWW

  7. Wow, what a difference. That would have taken some doing, better have a big rest before starting again.
    Have a great week.

  8. OMG! Congrats on the great desk I really feel bad about mine! Have a great week and get that desk a mess again. Vickie #38

  9. good for you! the desk looks great! I like the before pic too:) Happy woyww! Lindsay-frugalcrafter #25

  10. I'm not the neatest crafter either, lol. However, it is nice when your desk is all nice and neat And clean.....but it doesnt last long either. :-) I have a couple plastic storage boxes with scrap paper. I do go through the boxes often when I need smaller pieces for die cuts or backgrounds, etc..

  11. Wow, that is a major clean up! I love the little house in the first picture and I hope that with your newly cleaned desk you will alter it soon so I can see what you do with it!

    p.s. you asked about the instant camera film ... yes it is expensive but you can get much better deals on eBay, just have to be careful who you deal with as you don't want expired film! I don't use the camera as much as my real one or my iphone

  12. Thanks Karen. Will check out eBay

  13. wow that 2nd picture is a real shocker.... get back to it and make it messy again
    thanks for sharing

  14. I'm in the middle of a similar transformation in my ARTHaven, Kyla! Yours is certainly a dramatic before-and-after! I'm about to do a blog post about mine. I had a huge clear out yesterday and can't believe how different it all looks.

    Thanks for your visit. Glad you liked my annotated photo! It's the second time I've done one, and it's great fun - I got a very positive response each time. I can't promise one every week, but when I've got time and I get the urge lol!

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  15. Om goodness, come and tidy my crafty space please!! I'm leaning over things that keep falling down on top of me!! Gold star for tidiness! Sorry for the late comment...don't think I've slept since Tuesday! very busy week! Have a great crafting week, Happy WOYWW

  16. I am getting seriously worried now. It looks like an epidemic has hit WOYWW, whats with all this cleaning? It looks great though. Not good for the back or the legs or the arms though, I feel like I can just fall over and sleep for a week. It took me two whole days and some more to organise my space, thats why I am so very late visiting this week.
    Happy very belated WOYWW

  17. Can you pop over and perform one of those miracles on my desk please!
    What a transformation - are you still having the "vapours" (isn't that what the maidens get in the Barbara Cartland novels?).
    Hugs, Neet xx #21

  18. whoooo - well done on the tidy up! You must feel heaps better after that. I will have to go and do mine now - Doone and JoZart are coming to say for WOYWW-fest and I'm ashamed of my heap.... hehehe.... thanks for the inspiration and encouragement! Oh, and thanks for stopping by...
