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 - 168

Oh dear, it is worse than ever.  Never mind the push back or anywhere else.  The mountains are about to fall.  Added to that is the fact I have now lost so many stamps amongst the detritus, so a good sort out and put away is called for.
This is the tidiest bit - it gets worse.  Apart from the panic to get this month's cards done, I suddenly realised we are about to go on holiday and I have a mountain of  cards to do for early September, a load of sewing to shorten trousers for Geoff (denim jeans), baking to take away ..... and I WANT TO PLAY with my stamps.  That is one reason you can see my total stock of Adirondacks on show with a couple of Big and Juicys thrown in, post it notes with stamping masks cut out and a lot more.

Just turn to the left a little and it gets worse.  I won't bore you with a list of what you can find there, and just let you browse for yourself.  Just be careful - it might all fall down.  I will just point out the camera battery in the foreground.  You might know that as soon as I get my camera out to take a picture, the battery died.

In case you are wondering why I am showing you the shameful mess in which I was working (playing) yesterday, just take some time to pop over to Julia's place  where you will find loads of other desks to browse through each Wednesday.  I have been missing in action for a couple of months, due to lack of time.  I felt it was unfair to accept lovely comments from others when I could not find the time to return the visits.  Hopefully, things have calmed down a little and I will certainly do my best to get round as many desks as possible this week.

Calmed down, Maggie? Doesn't sound like that to me - you seem to have a mountain of stuff to do before that holiday, hope you get it all done. I've caught glimpses of your homework - lovely stuff. Hope you get all those to-do items done in record time :) Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #105

It's good to see you back - doesn't time fly.... typing this and a pile of finished tags have just slid off the scanner on which they are precariously resting...
Have a good holiday - hope you get everything done in time!

Lots of stuff piled on your desk. I promise to tread carefully and not to cause any avalanches. Sometimes when my desk gets like that and I still want to play I pull out a folding table-so shameful.

Joanne said...

Don't fret about not getting round to leave comments, I hardly ever manage everyone. Have to admit I was distracted to the left of your post which showed that amazing scene you won a prize with. Well done.
Happy woyww

So are the stacks like a game of Jenga, see what you can pull out without toppling the pile over? Do you get extra points? lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

How deliciously indecorous!
Maggie I'm pleased to come and find you again, having missed of late. The desk looks great to me. One must do some flinging and piling of things when on a roll. There is something pleasing about dismantling it and making it tidy again.
Have a fine holiday.

I hope you get all your crafting finished, so you can go right ahead and have a relaxing holiday, without worrying about a list of things to get done as soon as you get home!

Tertia said...

It sounds like you are in panic mode. I would just forget everything, sit down and play, the rest? well, they can take care of themselves. The jeans can be rolled up and food? who needs to eat when they can play?
Happy belated WOYWW!

RosC said...

Hi Maggie, seems like an age since we exchanged comments. Glad to see your desk and the juicy stamp pads and things.

Cameras and batteries are in cahoots; they have a plot going to konk at a critical moment. Maybe with things less fast and furious, the camera battery will behave.

Take care,
Ros. #125

Julia Dunnit said...

Well now, way I see it is that if you just walk away from it and have a great and prepared holiday, you face it fresh and ready!! Oh and by the way, that teeny pile? It's nothing...but if it toppled, it wasn't me, honest!!

I don't think your desk looks that bad from these pictures just looks well used and creative! Sorry I am so late getting around but it is what it is with family, crafts, etc. time can sometimes become a premium! Have a great week and thanks for sharing. Vickie #68
