WOYWW 54


Hi everyone, I can't believe I actually managed to join in for a second week, miracles will never cease! LOL!
It took me about 3 days to visit all the WOYWW blogs last week, but I eventually made it and I had such a lovely time being nosy. I wonder how many days it will take me to get around them all this week?
As you can see from my photo I was in a colouring mood and I forced myself NOT to clear up before taking my picture, so I hope all those WOYWWers who complained about my tidy space last week will be happier this time (if you'd like to know more or join in, just visit Julia at Stamping Ground)
I have to confess it......I am a tidy crafter!! Yes I know it seems unlikely, but really I am. I do try to be untidy but I just can't work in a mess, my Mojo goes walkabout and I have to join it, so I think I may find this WOYWW harder than I imagined
It's second nature to me now to clean up when I finish crafting so that my craft room's all nice and tidy for the next day.
If you are the same please leave me a message, otherwise I shall get some sort of complex about being the only neat crafter on the planet!

Oh you aren't alone at all Chrissie - I've visited a couple of tidy gals this morning! Your desk is a fascination to me - everything geometrically placed and of course, one or two pens!!

Bee said...

you are not alone Chrissie - there are a lot of tidy crafters hanging about in the closet - I think finding out there are a lot of us might bring a few more out into the open. I love to walk into my craftroom each morning and see it neat and tidy and just waiting for me. As for the ProMarker fest, I think it's time I bought more.

Hi Hun. I am not tidy while I am crafting, I have every box out possible but it all goes away within minutes as everything has it's proper box and place. I have numbers on my boxes and a list on the cupboard door what is in every numbered box.

Glen said...

I wish I WAS like you Chrissie but I am ashamed to say that I barely have time to put my things away before I begin another project. I don't even have time to photograph all of my creations to put them on my blog but hey...I appreciate we are all different and I LOVE to see a tidy desk...it's what I am aspiring to! *Ü* Since you are now retired and have more time to spare....maybe you would like to come and sort out my scraproom! *Ü* TFS. ~Glen~

You KNOW I love your desk. You also know I followed your lead from last week and left a mess on my desk, at least for a few minutes. I bet it didn't take you very long at all to clean up. Those containers look like they are functional and cleanup should be easy.

Thanks for coming back a second week and helping to show that neat is not a bad thing. Happy WOYWW.

Christine said...

Wish I could be tidy like you Chrissie, every thing on your desk is in order and WOW what a selection of Promarkers you have. Afraid the few I have are all in the same box
Hugs

Lavender Rose said...

It looks like there are some great cards in the making Chrissie judging by those lovely images and so many markers!!!!

Darcy said...

great space, made my heart beat a little fster when i opened your page and saw all your pens, mmmm yummy boxes of glee. Enjoy your colouring.

Helen said...

Twiglet said...

Rica said...

Tee-hee-hee - Chinese take-away tubs, Aren't they fab for crafting goodies. Don't get them here in Germany so when I go home the family has to feast on Chinese so I can collect more tubs - they are so happy when I leave for home lol. You really are too tidy, if I see the same tidiness next week I really gonna fall out with you!!!!
messy hugs Heather xx

Spyder said...

AW I wish I knew your secret..on how to be tidy, of course I blame the fact that I don't have enough shelves, so if I want what's on the bottom, it all has to come down...or up or over...love your Promakers..I now have five little draws, sim to yours and I'm trying to keep them 'colour coded!' Have a crafty week

Amazing coloured images and all those lovely Promarkes like little soldiers on parade day!!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Chrissie,

Had it not been for you and your comment last week about leaving something out long enough to show a "mess," I would never have even considered it this week. For that I am grateful.

I feature a blog each day, and since I really LOVE your style and neatness, I am naming you my blog pick of the day tomorrow (June 17). Thanks for being such a great inspiration.

Sunshine Girl said...

What a tidy desk! you seem to have the same Promarker addiction as me although I only have 98 and it looks to me like you have a few more!

Chrissie said...

Oh my goodness, that's what I call a lot of pens... and what fabulous colouring Chrissie!
Chrissie

Sandra said...

Wow! I feel some 'pro-marker-envy' coming on... great space. Colouring is my favourite part of a project!
Thanks for your lovely comment about my mini baby sculpt. I really appreciate it.

I can see you have an aversion to pens Chrissie! And I'm a tidy crafter too most of the time, I haven't been able to join in with WOYWW for a couple of weeks, but when I get going again I hope you'll see you're not alone in the tidy desk world!

Pam said...

Much to my husbands dismay I am not a tidy crafter!! Even with all your colouring out your desk looks tidy. Hugs Pam x
