Stampin' UP! a storm.....

Wow another week has passed and here we are again taking a peek at the desks of the creative curtesy of Julia over at Stamping Ground

As you can see the desk is still looking pretty tidy, I just wish I had remembered to take a photo when it was at its messiest this week. I really do make a mess sometimes honest!
To the left is a scrapbook page of my Nanna and Grandad on their wedding day which I am working on. I reached the point of 'do I need anything else on there' so decided instead of fretting about it I would catch up on some admin and give my brain time to rest lol. I find that the best way to asses things and so busied myself with sorting out my cardstock according to the new colour refresh we are undergoing. It should help me use up cardstock before it retires. 
Also on the desk are 40 (!) swaps for Sun and some booking forms for future craft fairs. 
The eagle eyed among you might have spotted something floral at the back of my desk and this is one of the display items for Sun when I can finally reveal all the Shhhhh! projects I have been working on.

Be sure to pop back next week to see them all revealed.

Till then Happy Crafting and Hopping


  1. Morning, happy WOYWW. Love the tidy desk and all those organised ink pads. I totally agree that admin and sorting is very relaxing,

  3. for a pretty tidy desk, there's lots going on! hope you'll show your grandparents' wedding page when it's done - when i've finished mum & dad's wedding album, i'll be going back a generation too!
    happy WOYWW and have a great week :)
    no. 4

  4. If I ever lose my mojo I always end up tidying my craft's so relaxing to just switch off. I usually find it hiding under a pile of card! Happy WOYWW. Pam#23

  5. I'm like that with a lot of my pages too. Coming back to them with fresh eyes gives you a whole new perspective and it really helps.

  6. Hi Emily,

    Can you tell me what you are using for your stamp pad storage? It looks perfect!

    Thanks for stopping by already. Still getting snow here, even though the calendar says it's Spring. Mother Nature has her own schedule.

    Happy WOYWW

  7. Too tidy for me to believe that you are a messy crafter ! Thanks for stopping by ! Ali #15

  8. Well your blog is certainly colourful, so where do you lack colour? Thanks for visiting me today BJ#20

  9. 40 swaps? Oh my, that's alot of work it seems. Brigita #138

  10. I wish I was stamping by the sea. You are very lucky to live by the sea! I have now had a glass of wine and I am still trying to visit everyone so my message may be incoherent lol! jenx 129

  11. Very neat. Your layout looks good and so does the basket. Happy WOYWW! Nan #9

  12. Emily, thank you, thank you, thank you for saying my room is in chaos. Why others cannot see I have no idea. I know there is not a place to stamp in it at the moment. It is a complete mess and I cannot see the wood for the trees. Anyway, enough of me, I came here to see you.
    Looks as if you have a lot on your plate at the moment. The LO looks good, can we have a closeup please at some later time and I can't wait to see what you have lined up for Sunday. Do show us after the event.
    Thanks for visiting me earlier - Hugs, Neet number 16 xx

  13. Oooh it all looks very organised and creative! The swaps look lovely and the mystery project very intruiging! Are the swaps for a training event? Hope you have fun at it. :D

  14. G'day Emily
    I've resigned myself to the fact that I shall ever be running late to get to others blogs due to my work but here I am. I grew up by the sea and miss it immensely. OMG you have been busy to make 40 swaps!!LOVE all your pretty stamp pads. Even though I have dabbled with paper crafting for over 20 yrs I actually have very few stamp pads.
