It's that show and tell time again courtesy of Julia at The Stamping Ground where you will find out all about the wonders of WOYWW!  
So here's this weeks mystery - how does this happen??!!
I have organised my craft room to give me more space on my desk - my shelves are directly in  front of me - so how is it that I end up working in a space of 10" by 8"(I measured it, the ruler was out for measuring up the card I'm making for my grandson)????
Do you spy my new TH die by the way - ordered from Country View Crafts on Monday - arrived today!! Free p&p too, what a service! Can't wait to get using it! Otherwise it's just a pile of stuff to put away!

Hopefully I will get around to visiting later - bad connection while we were away prevented me from getting back to a couple of visitors here last week so hope to remedy that today

Thanks for looking, Chris

Don't you just like it when it's free p&p & fast delivery. I hate waiting for things to come . Happy woyww jill #41

That's probably about the size my workspace ends up being, and I am forever organizing my craft supplies it seems like. Happy WOYWW - Sandy Leigh #67

I'm a little later visiting today cos I've been cleaning, sorting and tidying [again] ready to put our house on with another estate to get this house sold!!
It happens cos you just haven't pushed back quite far enough ;-) Enjoy your fun time.

I have an entire table but still end up working in a tiny space at one end! Happy Easter x Jo

I think we are all guilty of the 6 inch square syndrome. Couldn't quite see what die it is but I'm sure you'll have fun with it.Country View Crafts and Grafton Crafts are my two go to internet stores. Great prices and always so FAST even with the free p & p. Happy WOYWW and Happy Easter, Cindy #59

I always end up squeezed into a tiny space on the desk, too. Hope the card for your grandson comes out the way you want. Easter blessings, Chris # 31

Sarah Anderson said...

I've been wondering about that die, let me know if it's a must have!!

Hello Chris. You mean you manage a space as BIG as 10" x 8"??? I never manage that - and my work desk is over 15 feet long! It looks like you are going to have fun with those goodies - I suggest you use the left shove principle or a while yet!
Have a very special Easter.

Hi Chris, I love when you put a photo up of your craft workspace, always makes me laugh. I have been trying to tidy mine for last 2 days. I think I was down to a 6 x 6 space lol. Ordered some more storage for dies and reorganised my paints to give me more room for a little while LOL, Julie x

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Chris..this tiny desk space is a problem here too at times...I do try hard to clean up after a project. I see your TH die and do really like that one. Cheers and have a great Easter week RobynO#43'

Helen said...

That's a huge space you have to work in, lol, sometimes mine is smaller.... CVC are fabulous at service, and so helpful too. I use them lots. Enjoy the die. Helen 20

Julia Dunnit said...

Well of course the ruler was out already!! I don't know how it happens , it's stash stealth if you ask me....!
We've been looking at WOYWW crop page today...really excited that you're coming, just wanted to let you know if you don't already that Stonehenge has to be booked in advance since the new visitor centre opened!!

Christine said...

It's the thought that counts!!
Love the browny look to you desk this week. Brown is not my usual colour of choice but I love that card down on the left of the picture ...... looks like you've been having a good time anyways.
Happy Easter

How wonderful to have a new TH die I am sure you will get lots of use from such a great die.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Had to laugh because I don't have a whole lot of "stuff" to get out and put away. Maybe that's why my work areas are always neat (grin). More stuff, more mess maybe!!

So, are you going to the WOYWW May crop?

pearshapedcrafting said...

Oh Yes! Hubby booked a b and b a few weeks ago! YAY!!!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Yay, you're coming to the Crop!! Julia and I were having a chat about numbers yesterday, and we checked her blog link and there you were! How lovely, we really appreciate you coming all that way :-)
Btw, it tickled me no end that you measured your actual working don't leave yourself much room, do you?? Lol :-)
Hugs, LLJ 37 xx

Mrs.D said...

Oh Chris, just like me. I clear everything away and then start crafting and within minutes I am moving stuff away so that I can get to my glass mat. I'm sure soem of my things have legs and wander over to see what I am doing.
That die look interesting, just what I need for a card I'm struggling with which Is why I am snooping instead of gettting on with it.
Have a fun weekend.

Tam Hess said...

I have to have chairs set up all around me for more and more space! Thanks for sharing :)

butterfly said...

Yup... that's a familiar story! However clear I make the table, however often, this is how I end up in a very short space of time. In my recent mad spate of crafting, many many projects were scattered over the floor in various stages of readiness!
Hope you're enjoying a lovely sunny Easter weekend, Chris.
