WOYWW May 19th 2015

Morning Dear Readers, sorry i missed Monday it was our anniversary and we took a day of doing nothing at all and that meant no computer too.  It was lovely to take the time to do nothing at all we watched TV and films and ate our favourite foods and that was it until it was time to collect the children from school, bliss.

But back to today and it is Wednesday so that means its time for the world wise snoop around the crafty world, now i took my picture on Tuesday morning because i am feeling a little under the weather today so have given up on this layout for now for fear of spoiling it i shall come back to it when my headache has gone, I'm sure the stormy weather is to blame and once that passes all will be right again. I love having a craft room now meaning that i can just leave works in progress and close the door on them until i can come back to them.

2015-05-19 11.17.52

So this is an arms stretched up in air picture whilst sat on my chair.

From this side <--- i have my new love my Webster’s craft mate folio with all my journaling pens and other essentials {tea bags, post its Winking smile} under that is the paper pad I'm using for this layout its a craftwork cards one themed for London.  some embellishments that go with the theme, my phone a note from Mr.C which he leaves for the days he starts work before we’re up.  My trimmer with a picture for this layout of one of my daughters with a Shaun the sheep from the trail in London atm – i am scrapping pictures taken this past Saturday, get me for being on the ball! Ha! i could let you think that it was me being organised where as actually it was because i went to an all day crop event on Sunday and i couldn't decide what pictures to take so when my daughter came back from her trip to London with a camera full that was my decision made Smile

Next to my trimmer just peaking into shot are two dry wipe magnet boards that i just got from Smiths {BOGOF} waiting to go up on the side of my stamp book cases for my to do lists etc.  Then in the middle i have my layout done project life style but with normal scrapbook papers that i cut to fit. I like making cards for my project life style layouts i can co-ordinate them if i want to do a matching tradition layout and also they can be a bit more personal to us and our albums.

On the window sill is my clock, my little ramekins of bits in progress usually bits i have stamped, coloured and die cut that are waiting their next step, a box with some bits and pieces that i am putting aside for some RAKs, my crystal effects{use this A lot!} a little brass bell – surprising how quickly the children respond to a bell ringing than you shouting their names! My heart shaped little pot of essentials – coco butter, lip balm, cuticle balm, hair brush etc., and my little house.

At the moment i am in the process of saving up some bits and pieces so that i can join in with pocket letters, i really like receiving snail mail and i am hoping that this may develop into pen pals with some people and ‘meeting’ new people if anyone would like to swap a pocket letter with me then do get in touch Smile

That’s it from me today until next time

  1. your room looks so sunny! the weather yesterday was all over the place, wasn't it! no wonder you had a headache.. Happy WOYWW Helen 7

  2. Yesterday I thought winter had returned with everything the weather could throw at us but today the sun is shinning & its looking a whole lot better.
    You've a lovely sunny room & makes for a good crafting room .
    I like the paper you've cut down for your project life . Happy woyww Jill #10

  3. You missed the spot closer to you haaha. I love your craft mate folio. Love the view you have
    Bridget #2

  4. Isn't it wonderful being able to close the door on the chaos? I can do that too - it's fab not having to clear up all the fabrics etc off the dining table, which is what I used to have to do before!
    What a lovely bright space you have...it must be a delight to sit there. But best of all, you have a bell!! I don't know if that would work in my house, lol.....
    Hugs, LLJ 15 xx
    PS Sorry about the earworm ;-)

  5. What a lovely bright picture. Had to smile at your pen folio - I have decided I must have a thing about pens just like I have about handbags (you know, the sort of thing I mean, lots of ladies have one about shoes) because my collection of pens for journalling is h-u-g-e and would not fit into a folio like that. Gosh, I am terrible and wonder when some of them will get used.
    Glad Saturday went as well as it did and realised so much for the charity.
    Hugs, Neet 17 xx

  6. Hope your headache goes away soon. I can totally relate.

    You have a lovely, lovely craft space. And having your own space to craft in is such a joy, isn't it? thanks for visiting me already. Happy WOYWW from #1.

  7. Hi Charlie and thanks for already popping over to my desk. You do have a lovely desk to work at with a great window and light. I like making my own bits to use too rather than buy the pre-made ones. Enjoy your crafting and have a great week Cheers RobynO#16
    ps I might just be interested in the pocket letter as I am a fan of snail mail too.

  8. Love that you have a craft room - i dream of one whilst i am crafting on a folding table sat on the settee.. One day! :) lea number 24

  9. Great desk - yes isn't it great to be able to just walk away and shut the door? Weather doesn't seem much improved today, hope you've got rid of the headache! Happy WOYWW Cindy #25

  10. Looks like a lovely outlook from your crafty room. Sandra de @32

  11. Hi Charlie, thanks for the visit to mine. Hope you're feeling better. The weather was all-over the place yesterday and isn't much better today but at least the sun has come out now. Wishing you a crafty woyww, Angela x 21

  12. Oooh lovely stuff Mrs C...love the spots on the bus papers, what a great combo. I love that your man leaves you a note if you' aren't up, that sort of thing needs a scrapbook page too! I'm often like that for Crop...take something instant and now rather than rifle back through old pics...sometimes I just cant face the choice!

  13. Sweet he leaves a note in the morning. I'm with Julia - that totally needs at least a layout and maybe a mini-book!

    Happy pre-anniversary WOYWW!

  14. You have a lovely craft space, so light and airy, and so great to be able to shut the door on half finished work and go back to it later. Thank you so much for stopping by my desk earlier - I hope you have a great week,
    Diana #30

  15. Thanks for your visit earlier.
    Interesting point about the weather - I had to take a Migraine tablet yesterday as my headache was so severe. Thought it was the stress we were under but that didn't make sense.... the weather ....TOTAL sense!!1 Thank you for that.
    PS love that London paper.
    Have a good week

  16. OO, lots of interest and fun going on here. I hope your headache has gone, so you can get back to enjoying yourself again. I'm only a little jealous of your crafting wallet of pens, as mine live in a clear plastic pencil case, with a purple zip - and I'm quite fond of that! I'm just getting back to a little papercrafting (as opposed to bookbinding), after some months of making only books. You saw some cards I've made, on your visit to my blog today. I'm hoping to do more cards and some scrapbook pages very soon.
    Have a good week!

  17. Happy anniversary ( mine tomorrow) :) Hope you are feeling better. I LOVE your websters pages wallet - do you have a journal as well? I like to be able to leave pages out on my desk - it takes me ages to complete anyway and sometime I just need to go back later . Soojay 59#

  18. What a lovely way to spend your Anniversary. I'm glad you had a lovely day.
    Being able to shut the door on a project in mid flow is great isn't it. No pressure to finish or have to tidy up mid way. I love having a room to be able to make a mess in without anyone complaining.
    I hope you feel better soon.
    Hugs Lisax #48

  19. Belated Happy Anniversary. Glad you did exactly what you w\anted and enjoyed your day.

    Hope your headache has gone.

    Looking forward to seeing your finished project.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy WOYWW

  20. Hmm, just heard of pocket letters (and saw an example) maybe two days ago, and now again! Looked like something that suits pocket- lifeists best, but can probably be done in many styles :) happy woyww!

  28. Thanks for popping over to mine yesterday. I had a full on 11 hour day with our two 3 1/2year old twinnie grandchildren yesterday so am sure you will understand why it's taken me til now to catch up....I was just a tad tired lol.
