WOYWW #222 Sharing the birthday love...

Happy WOYWW everyone!! I am joining in late today as I got in from work at 2am this morning.....Go to Stamping Ground and meet Julia and the gang, if you have no idea what I am yabbering about!

This week I have a bumper bonus stack of photos for you, as I got the final piece of furniture for the craft room...I was hoping to be all organised and have it all tidy for you...

Main photo - my rather messy desk, but now with Promarkers ON my desk!! Yay - front and centre is a stack of goodies from JT.

Card from JT - this is the card that you can see on my desk. It's beautiful and was waiting for me when I got in at 2am today and it's so me!

New expedit in the craft room - which now separates my desk from the 'bedroom' area - needs new boxes and a proper organising session, but you get the idea!

New Expedit - craft shelving for the bedroom 

Final photo is of my shiny new noticeboard (not the best photo) It is magnetic and has cork edges so you can pin stuff too. I covered it with some left over Ikea Fabric...I finally used the hot glue gun...go me!
It was an idea I saw on Pinterest and I think it works.

Sorry for the epic post....but I promise I am nearly done.

Now on to the sharing of the birthday love. As I am 40 next month and you are all so lovely, I thought that from the 28th of September for 40 days I would make cards for 40 lovely WOYWW'ers.

All you have to do is email me your address and let me know if I should leave it blank so you can use it - wherever you are in the world and I'll send you a card!!

It's a little bit off the wall, but I think it will be fun.

Happy WOYWW.


p.s small print on the 40 days of fun...I promise to post them all before December 31st!!


  1. Hello C, thank you for your visit - and lovely comments. To answer your question no I'm not a seamstress but I do make hand sewn gifts and decorations from felt.

    Your new room divider looks great and is going to be perfect when you get organised. Loved your colourful desk - and is that a carousel pin cushion I can see peeping out from behind your laptop?

    Have a happy week MMx #45

  2. Hello again Claire - a cupcake? Cool - I look forward to seeing the photo - the colours are gorgeous. Thank you. MMx

  3. I love my promarkers and they have to be on my desk ALWAYS! I only have a craft area not a whole room but I make it work all the same :)

  6. Have fun organising your space Claire. Love that unit. I think the invisible pin board is a novel idea!!! ;-) Guess you decide the photo wasn't up to scratch. Your card making celebration sounds fab. Happy WOYWW from Helen 70

  9. Glad you like the card! I loved making it. I hope I'm in your card exchange :)

  10. I like the Ikea shelf as a room divider. Pleasing to the eye and functional. Doesn't get any better than that. April #22
