WOYWW 522 – not much to see

This is my first WordPress post for WOYWW (What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday) and will be a quick one. There is absolutely nothing going on in my craft room, except for packaging up some parcels to take to the post office later.

Therefore, I show you some of my displayed items and the new storage box for my very much reduced mixed media stash (yes, just one box!).

The pink document holder has a lovely pocket letter I received as part of a swap last year, a folder with some left over die cuts (I no longer have a die cutting machine) and some empty folders! The 2 bears were made by a lady who attends the craft workshops I go to at our local craft shop.

Still got a nice selection of tools and mediums if I really want to do some actual scrapbooking/journals.

I am loving seeing the photos and blog posts about the Crop on Saturday. So sorry I missed it. Basically I overscheduled by booking our car for a service in Swindon on the Friday. We had to travel down on Thursday afternoon, as it is a 4 hour drive, then went to the Outlet Shopping Centre for shopping/food that evening. Friday was spent touring around Wiltshire (Devizes and Avebury) whilst the car was in the workshop. I was exhausted after all that and we made the decision to return home that evening. We should have just travelled up to Shrewsbury on the Friday afternoon, ready for the Crop and got the car serviced another time. Oh well, I have learnt that I can only cope with one activity per trip away, which I did really know – but I am always over-optimistic about how much I can cope with.

I haven’t transferred any of my old Blogger posts over here yet, but will attempt that soon. Obviously there won’t be a huge amount of crafty stuff, but I will share my digital crafting ‘journey’ (a lot to learn) and the workshops I go to (got a papercrafting one on Friday), plus the rock painting (need to get some more done, as will be hiding a few today).

If anyone is interested in cleaning (especially trying to make up my own recipes and reducing the amount of products we use in the house), organisation and decluttering, and generally living with chronic illness, then my other blog posts are worth a read.

  1. such a shame that you couldn’t make the crop, but totally understandable. hope the car is now running perfectly though! Like your new look blog, good luck transferring stuff over! Helen #2

  2. Hi Ali, I have the very same pink box, but I think mine was bought at the Range. Sorry you weren’t able to make it to the Crop, it would have been lovely to meet you. Maybe next time. I like your new blog – Maybe I’ll look at WordPress again! Have a lovely week Heather x #6

  3. I am so sorry to have taken so long to visit. Unfortunately, my electricity was off this afternoon and into the night due to the storms. Now it is back on and I’m trying to play catch up.

    WOW, talk about decluttering. You did a lot of it. Good luck with this new blog. Happy WOYWW from #3.

  4. I do love that pretty box filled with wonderful supplies! Have a great rest of the week!

  5. Ah you’re up and running, well done Miss Ali! So sorry that you weren’t up to the Crop, it was a fab day, but I think you did the right thing because without the journeying alone, it was a busy and tiring day! Am thinking then that from your words that you’ve just about given up on paper crafting then? Golly, have you suddenly got masses of time?!!

Hi. Thank you for using your valuable time to visit my website. I treasure every comment, so add a few words or sentences. Ali x
