WOYWW 106 - ! Gorgeous PiF and Creative Chaos Abounds... No Really lol

Usually I start with my crafty spaces, but this week I'm showing the gorgeous PiF I received from Helen. It's a large tag and it is stunning! Sometimes it's near the computer and sometimes it's in the craftroom (set aside from the fray). If you haven't done a PiF before, I highly recommend it!!

Now if you are of delicate sensibilities and you find chaos (creative or no) paralyzing... look away... look away now!

Here is my desk this morning testing the earthly bonds of gravity lol. Front and center is a pinwheel I cut on my Cricut with the Mother's Day 2010 cartridge. I love a really free spinning pinwheel and have discovered that if some substantial cardstock is glued to the back it gives a nice solid framework to the whole thing. Another tip, eyelets. The jar is my water jar for washing out paint brushes, notice the lid? That lid has saved my bacon on more than one occasion lol. Balancing on top of the paint jar, are my labeled Distress Inks. I left part of the label white to show the ink against the white and then wrote across in black ink (so I can see at a glance if I like the color against black ink writing). And on top of the labelled Distress Inks are two more of the Maze Books (seriously, I'm addicted).

Joann's online was having a brilliant sale on all things Tim Holtz, so I picked up some Distress Inks I didn't have (to the left under the strip), and those ball feet for boxes. Upper left is a picture of DD waiting to be put on a scrapbook page. It's the reason to go to Disney World, the smiling, brilliantly happy child on the Dumbo ride. When I took the picture I had no idea it was the shot most often taken lol. But it is a brilliant picture of her :D.

The strip thing is another flash of inspiration. Put down a line of tombow glue and let dry (so it's tacky) and now it's perfect for decorating those clear half dome candle accents which we call skittles. Which reminds me, I found some diamond (as in argyle) shaped ones, but they are buried in there somewhere.  The plastic bag to the right is to keep the moisture in a brick of paper clay. So much fun to be had, but it really is time for a clearing... only I have to not get distracted... wish me luck lol. *looking for harness and safety helmet*

Now if you are wondering what's all this WOYWW then, head over to Julia's and have a gander, better yet, snap a picture and join in the fun. Honestly, could your desk be more ... creatively chaotic ... than mine???? LOL

You are very late getting to the table today. I missed you. You shopped Joanns online, while I went to their store yesterday. Hope you got some good bargains because they have NO TH in the store I went to. And sorry, dear S, but I have to look away. All I see is that pinwheel.. Talk about catching my eye! Happy WOYWW from #1 this week (I have NO idea how that happened, either).

Wowzer! You can really pack a lot into a space! Looks like you have lots of projects and supplies available...enjoy! And happy WOYWW!

So glad you like the PIF - I had such fun making it! Your desk looks incredible - in danger of falling over, so it's as well you have the lid on your paint water! Have a great day.

I feel not so bad now , having seen your desk. Everything just seem too precariously balanced even for me but I'm sure it is all fun and useable for you.

I've been nworking ontop of something that's on top of something today - I actually buried my scor pal to the point of not being able to find it.! LOVE that big pinwheel, how fun and cheerful. Love your PiF gift from Helen too - lovely colour! I admit, it IS!!

As soon as you said the word chaos, I was addicted, I couldn't look away! Fear was in me, but the adrenaline was pumping ... the outcome - you is worse than me (well this week at least)!

SueH said...

Is there really a desk under that lot…………are you sure. Lol!
I can’t help thinking that it’s like a house of cards, one false move and the lot topples.

Happy Crafting......well, if you ever find the space to!

By the way, I love your PIF....really beautiful.

Love the tag. I'm definitely going to check out what this WOYWW thing is. I have a sneaky suspicion it has something to do with cleaning my scraproom. I've already got a good start on it and making progress so I'll go check out the link. Thanks for sharing. Cindy
PS. So glad you were able to change your comment format so that it would be easier to leave you a comment. Totally appreciate it.

OMG! Your desk looks like what mine did over the weekend. I spent at least 15 hours between Sunday and Tuesday night cleaning up and rearranging. Good luck hope it doesn't slide off on the floor!! Love your PIF! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #46
