WoywW

Funny how even the most uncomfortable places are ok for cats, as long as they achieve their utter goal - to be totally in the way!


But I abandoned the computer and instead I sorted all my papers and put all pieces colour-coordinated (of course hehe) on my desk. Unused cardstock and paper packs on top. Bits and bobs paper in the red folder on the floor. Now I can hopefully use these pieces instead of buying new papers all the time...

And a new needle cushion for my pins, I'm really pleased with it. It's just an IKEA plastic cup with fabric covered foam rubber in it, disguised with pretty paper to look like a cupcake.

Fab pin cushion and your craft area is very tidy. I have a little scamp of a dog and he's just as bad as your cats. I daren't leave any of my stickles or other plastic bottles about as he thinks it's fun to run off with them.

Britt-Inger said...

Hallå där. Tack snälla för din söta och värmande kommentar i min blogg :):) Mycke snyggt du gjort sen jag var här sist. Mitt skapande och pysslande ligger ganska lågt under sommaren, fyller på energi för höstens övningar ;);)
Hoppas allt är gott i sommarvärmen och semestern antar jag...
Kram, Britt-Inger

angeleef said...

Oh that pin cushion looks amazing!
And I organised my scraps as well. I managed to make three cards with my scraps and I managed to buy 25 other paper pieces. It's a solution and an addiction. You'll never get rid off it, whatever you do :)

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh the cats - they don't even look comfy! I got your card and pins yesterday - thank you so much....I really love them and have secretly coveted some for ages.. I bought some from Vikki's but gave them away as gifts! Your work area is amazingly organised - I guess that's how you get so much done in your busy life.
