WOYWW 165, miscellaneous organization

This is a wall never before seen on WOYWW lol. It's still in a state of reorganization. Basically I've come to see that having my large desk jammed in corner only made it harder to set up properly. So I switched the side table that was by the door (now on the right of the picture) with the desk.

One thing about my house is that there is only one interior door with a functioning doorknob. Only two interior doors in the house HAVE doorknobs. This door had a very sturdy sliding bolt as a closing mechanism (on the inside only) and a drawer pull. I took off the sliding bolt lest someone lock themselves in with my craft supplies lol.

Also in view is one of my Eiffel Tower lamps. The photo box really is not dangling precariously off the edge of the desk, it just photographed that way. Once that surface is put away it will become my sewing/felting embellishment desk. The devices on top of the tv help my little near 25 year old tv get the digital broadcasts (the lengths I go to to avoid getting cable lol). I have been watching a lot of Olympics this year, I'm thinking it's because Enfys posts all these interesting teasers on facebook lol.

 Some of the goodies I brought back from my sister's house (have I mentioned how awesome it is to have a crafty sister?). Yes I now have FOUR distress ink markers and some scrap dots to play with. The polaroid frames are amazing, they have the color and texture of the real McCoy.

The protractor stamped on my miscellaneous image page. This book saves me a lot of flipping through all the stamps sets to find out which one had the image in question. I find the image I'm thinking of, and then start flipping through all the stamps sets to find a particular set. It really is much faster :D.

The stamp put back on the acetate and the identification written in Sharpie.

If you are wondering what's all this WOYWW business, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander. Better yet, join in the fun and share a picture of your workspace.

Wow! What a lot going on, despite the reorganisation! Love the protractor stamp - never seen one like that before.

Happy WOYWW,

I like your idea of indexing your stamps. The protractor stamp is really nice. I never saw one like that before. dani #26

I'm busy in the studio, so didn't join WOYWW this week. I thought that was a REAL protractor and not a stamp. Guess I was wrong. Fooled me! Have a great week, dear.

If you think that needs re-organizing, you should see the mess I've got!!! LOL! Although I'd never have the nerve to show it to anyone... heee!

P.S. Hit the post button too soon -- wanted to get in a "hi" to you, my friend!

Thanks for sharing your great idea of organising your stamps. I will have a go at that looks like it will save a lot of time. Sandy :) #43

Oh, this is lovely! Your TV perched on top of the DVD made me giggle! If I didn't have my desk in the living room, I'd have something similar fixed up.

Happy Wednesday!

I enjoyed reading how you organize your stamps as I store and list mine the same way! It sure makes it easier to chose one! And to remember what exactly we have...tehee

Bernice said...

Great organisation - I've always intended to catalogue my stamps this way, but haven't got round to doing anything about it!

Gabrielle said...

What a seriously exciting set of photos! Your stash looks great (I wish my sister was crafty!) and the photo box, no matter what you say, does look precarious! Happy Wednesday! #55

You have some weird doors in your house, but I saw one that was weirder--an apartment my brother moved into had a huge notch cut out in the bathroom door so it could swing shut past the sink counter top. Insanity! Who would rent an apartment like that? Yeah, my brother, I know, but who else? It looks kind of chaotic in your room right now. I hope the reorg goes smoothly. I love the protractor stamp! How fun is that?! Also, those polaroid frames are huge! It will be interesting to see what you come up to do with them.

So much interesting stuff to peek at! Love the idea of indexing your stamps, I need to do that, I never remember what I have! Have a good week xx

I need to figure out how to store my un-mounted stamps. I must admit I haven't used most of them so there's been no taking them out of their original packaging. A big binder just might do the trick!

Happy WOYWW

Oh you lucky girl to have a crafty sister to steal...umm...borrow things from! How do you like the distress markers? I haven't tried them yet, but I just got a bunch of the Distress pads, and I'm super excited to try them out!

LOVE your Eiffel tower lamp!!

I'm having a giveaway, open worldwide this week. Come check it out if you get the chance!

Thanks for your comment - do try the Dylusions inks - they are amazing! Like you, I use the DIs on my craft sheet to paint with as well - DIs are incredibly versatile and are in no way replaced by Dylusions which are a different thing altogether. I've recently started using the nibs in the holder to pick up ink either from the pad or craft sheet, to draw and write with - saves £££s on buying Distress Markers lol!!

Interesting post - I enjoyed reading about your re-organisation of your space. I agree it's lovely to have a sister who crafts, mine makes jewellery so I get to acquire lots of lovely beads for my pins. The protractor stamp is very realistic. Hope you are enjoying the weekend. Elizabeth x #63
