It's that time of the week again when we are officially allowed to be nosey and have a good rummage around each others desks under the watchful guidance of the Desk Leader, Julia so if you want to join in with all the WOYWWer's pop over HERE.
I felt an urgent need this week to organise my life which is not an easy task. I keep everything and have a huge pile of empty boxes of every shape and size under my desk waiting to be turned into something amazing but in the meantime fall on me every time I sit down. Stamps are shoved into my filing trays and my promarkers are in a wooden box and make a terrible noise when I rummage for that certain colour that is always at the bottom!!
First job was the stamps. I keep them in handmade books and so this is what I have in progress on my desk this week. The front and back is two pieces of thick card that were at the back of a pack of envelopes in a previous life. I painted them with acrylic paint and then made a panel for the front with distress inks and paint fusion daisies.
The pages inside are thin card which the clear stamp protectors are stuck to and I make a note of the make and name of each set for future reference and hey presto. Stamps organised and easily found.
Hubby made this fantastic holder for my promarkers out of a sheet of foam board from Hobbycraft which cost all of £2.50. It sits neatly in the box the pens lived in previously to keep it all rigid and it's light enough but strong enough to be moved about easily. Isn't he clever? I love the fact that they look so organised and I can get just the colour I want first time.
By the way, if you are wanting new promarkers, Hobbycraft are selling them at £1.49 each, which is the best price I've seen them at.
So I'm feeling much tidier now. There's just that mountain of boxes to tackle...... well maybe next week!!!
I'm off to see what all the other WOYWWer's have been up to so thanks for stopping by and I hope your week is going well so far.
