A very good morning and happy WOYWW  to favourite day of the week.  So what do I have to share this week ?...any master pieces in the making...nope... not quite we do have an unfinished card surrounded by lots of usual I am being indecisive and not much else.I have taken a break from the watercolour /distress marker painting ...I do have loads of great helpful suggestions though; a big thank you to everyone who shared their ideas and  tips it is very very much appreciated and when I am  ready to try again I will  keep you posted on my success.
current project 

long shot 

pretty little drawers 

I hope you like my new cute floral drawers ...I couldn't resist them at such a bargain..reduced to £1.00 each unfortunately there was only two left and a small box that now holds my colour mist sprays, the drawers are perfect to store all of my ink pads...although if I get any more I will need to find something else to put them in!... it does mean though that bit by bit I am slowly running out of desk space...I may need to get another desk to work from at this rate...there is also some great  new Gorjuss stamps I bought 2 new sets (4 in total) at a bargain price and looking forward to having a play with them next...I've tried some of the little stamps and they stamp watch out lots of dark moody colour to come (maybe)how is your creative space?...can we get to see it ...go to the Stamping Ground to share it with us and if not check out the fab desks and workspaces that have there myself now before work. have a great day and week crafty hugs Andrea X


  1. ah love the colours of DP on your desk Andrea.. and your new drawers!! mm very handy and agree on losing space to work.. I now set up a small fold away table in centre of room - so everything can explode on that for the messier things Im working on, so room is left at desk! happy WOYWW Shaz in Oz./x #47

  2. Hi Andrea...I see maybe you are making Easter the soft blues. Cuuttee drawers and a bargain. Have a great crafty week, Cheers RobynO#40

  3. Such a busy - and pretty - desk! Love those drawers :)
    Happy WOYWW!

  5. Thanks for calling by already and for your kind comments.
    Gorgeous new drawers there....think you need a shelf just above your desk to put them all on so you can keep your desk space :-)

  6. Hello Andrea. What lovely blues - hope you manage to decide how to use them... Great new drawers - and I understand about putting so much on the workdesk there's no room to work...Just like mine. I like Shaz's suggestion of another table - but then I wouldn't get past that to get to the stairs - hmm - obviously needs more thought in my instance!
    You will see the finished garment - but I'm sworn to secrecy until she wears it!
    Have a great week.

  7. Goodness but I LOVE the colours of papers you're working with...those soft tones are just gorgeous. And those drawers for a £1??? I want some too now... ;-)

  8. Humm. Did you sort out the comment thing or am I misremembering? No matter, happy that I can say I love those little drawers. The silver eyelets (on a MASSIVE scale) are so pretty with the soft colours. They should be on display for sure.

    Happy WOYWW!

  9. I, too, love all the blue paper on your desk! Bet your card will be gorgeous when complete. Your drawers are very cute but I don't think they'd even begin to hold my ink pads. I do need to go through mine and get rid of those I don't use anymore. Happy WOYWW and thanks for popping by!

  10. Hi Andrea, thanks for visiting earlier. I love Gorjuss stamps...I need a bargain too, as I haven't purchased any yet. The drawers are so cute and seem to match your penchant for blue :) Cx #49

  11. Love your new floral drawers, so cute and useful, and what a great price! Your giraffe card in the post below is adorable, btw.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and for the nice comments.

    Happy Woyww,

  12. Wow that is a steal on the cute cubie draw for a 1.00 great find and the color is just to cute. I was peeking at your card making stuff.. love what you have going on, will you share when your all done? Please Roberta 42

  13. Those draws are so pretty and they go so well with the colours you are using too! Love this scheme because it is so fresh. #4

  14. Gorgeous drawers Andrea, what a bargain! I love the colour of those papers on your desk and that adorable coloured image - I can't wait to see the finished card.

  15. Lovely pretty pastel shades on your blog this week, Andrea, and I do love those little drawers! What a find.

    Thanks for your visit and comment - glad you like the teabag experiments! As for my beautiful ARTHaven - it was a combination of my design (after having worked in a room that was combined office/studio, neither of which worked properly) and our builder's expertise as he translated my ideas into reality! The result is a creative space that is a real pleasure to work in, with plenty of storage, and plenty of room to have lots of things permanently out, like my sewing machine. I feel extremely blessed to have such a wonderful room!

    Pop back to my blog and see what a great time we had today, celebrating Mum's birthday! She really enjoyed it. Good nosh, too, though I say so myself lol!!

    Happy WOYWW,
