Good morning and a very happy Wednesday to everyone, I hope you are well and ready to enjoy the day ahead...Wednesday seems to come around so quickly...which means its time to share my desk with you all...why you ask?...if you don't already know go check out the wonderful host Julia at the Stamping Ground and join in the fun..you won't want to miss it. Sorry Julia its not short and it's photo heavy...so apologies now for along post! I'm also not sticking to the rules and sharing a bit more than just my desk, but as birthdays are only once a year I did not think you would mind :-)
how did they do that !
I'm definitely showing off today as yesterday was my birthday and I had a lovely day, I was very very spoiled. I woke up to a beautifully arranged pile of pressies...had Christmas came early...I think it has...I had the most wonderful and relaxing day off work with husband and daughter...perfect,I couldn't have asked for anything more. Last week I went to the NEC and for various reasons and work I hadn't had the time to unpack my goodies and as I also got some great birthday presents; I just had to share the before and after photo's of my desk/craft room taken last night when I got everything together and had the time to rearrange and put everything away.
lots of goodies !
I am very fortunate as not only did I get lots of crafty goodies abut other great gifts too...dont panic I haven't taken photo's of them!...Hubby treated me to 2 new sets of copic pens and storage and my daughter bought me the beautiful glass jar also you can see my NEC purchases. I got some great buys including some poinsettia and alphabet dies.stamps, some great floral bits and pieces and fab new inks that have been on my wish list a while. you will also see a cute new friend the giraffe he doesn't have a name as yet!... will be coming soon .
the usually unseen side- more mess!
It took me just over 2 hours to re-arrange everything and it's not quite right yet... but progress has been made.I couldn't resist keeping out one of the pretty gift bags I received...it seems a shame not use it for something so has some "bits n bobs" in it for now!...now I just need to get some crafting time to play...alas not now as I need to go to work shortly but hopefully after work today. I wont be able to visit anyone until after work and over the next few days I will hopefully catch up with everyone ...We have a very busy and important week at work,as have inspectors in all week, which means I won't be around much. I hope you have a great day and a lovely week ahead sending you lots of crafty hugs from a very Happy Andrea X
All tidy-now more space than ever !...not to close as daughters half made Christmas card is there also !
organised and neat !
