Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

WOYWW - 85


I seem to be having a problem with the picture on my blog this week.  They are either missing, so huge they cannot be viewed or showing as a black line in the middle of the screen.  Having had a play around, I have hopes that the photos are back in the correct place.  Please let me know if there is still a problem.

For anyone who has arrived here by accident, do make an effort to go over to Julia's blog on 
http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/
There you will find lots of like minded people who love crafting.

The views this week were to have been of a very messy room, hopefully only temporarily, while my very kind husband is finishing off the shelves on the other side of the room.  Even the floor is covered with stuff, and there is no chance of crafting for a couple of days.  Still a little pain now will be worth it in the long run.


Sorry I did not get round everyone this week, but I would like to say a big thank you to all those who took the trouble to visit my blog and to leave such lovely comments.  Hope to visit you all this week.

Hi there Maggie not sure if it is my computer (would not be surprised at present!!) but your picture does not show up at all..just a narrow black line, maybe that way we wont see the messy room!!
Love Shaz In Oz.xx

Susan Allan said...

I can't actually see your photo. There is just a stripe on the screen, but new shelves will be worth the wait. What a helpful husband you do have.
Have fun

Yes, progress always involves a little inconvenience. Enjoy your shelves when they're completed! Happy WOYWW!

karen said...

I like your shelves in this picture! Is your husband putting up the same shelves on the other side? I hope we get a picture next week when the new shelves are up!
Happy WOYWW!

Hope the craft room gets sorted soon - its a pain when you can't find what you want. Looking at the previous post about Clarity mounted stamps , I agree they are a pain. I only have one so ar and get fed up moving it from place to place cos it doesn't fit anywhere.

Nice little peek, even if it is a tad messy, loving the shelves, could do with making myself some of those... Happy bird watching too.
Thanks for visiting me today

Hi Marg, pics look ok to me, so it must be sorted. Is that an old mug tree I see with DST rolls on it? Very clever idea! I shall be looking out for one of those. See you soon, Love Shaz

butlersabroad said...

I see all your pictures just fine and you're right, a little pain now will be so worth it when your room is ready. I do have a question though... just how many rolls of dst does a girl need!!!!

Hugs

alexa said...

How wonderful to have someone to put up shelves in your craft room! My DH leaves this area strictly alone. Thank-you for visiting me today and for the suggestions for cleaning up my Mac - much appreciated. :)

hopefully you can get your computer/pic problem sorted soon. Lucky you have a husband who is willing and able to do a bit of carpentry for you.

Rhonda said...

Hi Maggie. I can see your photos too. Blogger must be up to it's old tricks again. Thanks for stopping by my desk. Happy WOYWW! #15

Hi Maggie
Glad you like the view from my kitchen window. I live on the Welsh/Shropshire border near Montgomery.

Spyder said...

Great pictures and they are showing me Useful boxes, I think I'm becoming addicted to them ...as I've just bought some tiny ones from HobbyCraft...sure they were priced up wrong as they had them hidden in a corner , while on the shelf,they were twice the price but advertised as half price!! So! Good deal!
Happy WOYWW!

judith@poppy cottage said...

Well, from what I can see, you have some great storage there. Your shelves look fab, Judith xx

Kim Dellow said...

Fabulous storage and I love how you store your tapes - so clever! Blogger has been doing the same to my photos from time to time, no idea why or what to do about it other than repost. Such a pain!
Love your work space.
Kim

Cardarian said...

You have great storage and by the looks of it quite a bit of room! Lots of interesting things on your desk so thank you for the good snoop! Enjoy your crafting!

Mrs A. said...

Those look like fab storage racks your hubby is constructing for you. Lucky you.
The playing Cards are for a flickr group where we have been challenged to make a 52 pack of playing cards one a week for the whole yr. You can choose your own colours and themes. Many thanks for asking.

Like the shelves you have already, so it will be brilliant when you have more.

It looks as if you are very organised,

Carola Bartz said...

Somehow I really love to see messy places - probably because it makes me feel better about my own messyness. Thanks for sharing.

Shaz in Oz. said...

Hi there Maggie yes it is all sorted this end.. love em when they are working but hate them when they are not...dont you? love the so very organised look, wonderful hubby! and did you figure somewhere where you could put a rod system to hang your clarity stamps at all? love Shaz in Oz.x

Neet said...

I was sure I had already visited you Maggie but guess not.
How wonderful of your DH to put up all those shelves for you - I wouldn't mind the/any inconvenience if I ended up with a room like you are obviously going to have.
Green with envy I am now running and hiding.

Marjo said...

It will be fantastic when it's done! Thanks for the peek and sharing. Happy WOYWW, hugs Marjo #10

Tuire Flemming said...

Hi Maggie,
can I just say, what a fab idea using the mug tree for hanging rolls of tape is

Charlene said...

The mug tree for tape is a brilliant idea! Thanks for the visit. #101

Sue, a.k.a. midwestgirl said...

I love those little shelves above your desk! Hope you can get back to crafting soon. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Sue #102

Debgem said...

I love the "coffee mug holder" - what a good idea! You have a super craft room, and I see that like me, you use the really useful boxes to store stuff. Thanks for your comment on my desk - it's certainly true about attacting more paper - you should see my office desk - then again maybe not :)

Angie said...

just checking that I left a comment ...but I hadn't ...senior moment ...love the mug tree idea

olive said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. The white 'tree' on my desk is supposed to be for hanging jewellery, but I'm going to change into something else. Got some great stuff on your desk..... Hugs xxx

Elizabeth said...

Hi Maggie, no problem with your photographs - showing up just fine on my pc. Left a fairly lengthy comment on your previous post so will keep this brief. The mug holder for tape is a great idea :) Regards, Elizabeth #78

oneoff said...

I agree with Elizabeth about that mug holder - that's really useful. Hope you will soon be carefully filling those new shelves.

Ciara said...

Your photo's look just fine. I love your shelves, they are brill.

In answer to your question on my blog; the little jars are glass ones from Ikea and just £2 for 4. I have quite a few already and use them for brads, paper flowers, other little embelishments. Very handy they are!

Lynne said...

Thanks for the info I am going to give it a try. Love all your storage boxes and I need more shelves too!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

your photos are fine so i guess you've fixed them up by now. i love to read about happily married couples and very kind husbands who put up shelves for their wives. warms my heart! your story about how you started (in about me) had me laughing. thanks for sharing!

Debs said...

Lots of luvverly stash and storage space, gosh I need a craft room!

Anne said...

I never get tired of looking at other people's shelves, storage, and stash! Another one here who loves your mug tree with the tape rolls on - now there's an idea!

Susan said...

Great storage ideas. Thanks for visiting. Susan xxox #19

Nicky said...

Thats the problem with improving things we always seem to get into a bigger miss first before it improves ~ Nicky 24

Nicky said...

Just popping back to say there is a little something on my blog for you here!

Sue from Oregon said...

Maggie, love those shelves in the background and your inventive tape storage!

SueH said...

Oh Maggie, I had to chuckle when you said that a lot of your stuff is on the floor while your other half is putting up some shelves for you.
I have no one putting up shelves and my crafting paraphernalia is on the floor the majority of the time Lol!

Hope you get your room sorted out soon and I look forward to seeing the finished results. There’ll be no excuse for a mess after that!

So far so good - patience and acceptance of what IS in the workroom is not easy, but you are on the right track. Loved the peek into your room. Looks nice to me.
