WOYWW 101

We are now not long away until we are nearly at week 104. WOYWW is a massive success in it’s own right, but week 104 will be the 2nd Anniversary of WOYWW. It is addictive, having a look around everyone’s desks and getting lots of ideas. Last week I made it to everyone's desk and made comments. Pop on over to Julia's blog for the head start here

Thank you for all your comments last week, you are totally fab and do make me smile. I am not 8 foot tall and although the picture does make it look very tall. However, I can not see into the top two draws, but I can easily pull out the draw to take out what I need, when needed. Thank you for those who became a follower last week, if I have not become a follower as of yet do let me know and I will return the favour. If you love what you see, do become a follower and I will return the same.

As you can see I have done my first blog candy, and done it for charity. Do give it a shout out and participate, you can win £70 worth of goodies plus 50 stamped images from a range of Penny Black and Creative Expressions stamps. Plus you can gain additional entries to increase your changes of winning, details in the post above. However some of you have already entered, forgot to make a blog post, once you have have made a post do let me know so I can add your entry. If you have any feedback how I can improve this for the future, do let me know. I appreciate all comments.

With Ebay, I have had some sell and some go unsold. It is early days. For Charity, I have listed some non craft items for sale. Do help the cause and bid.

I am now able to change the URL of my facebook page. However I am not sure what to call it to. I want something to incorporate my name or initials SS. Although I only have cards listed, I will soon be listing bookmark corners and candles to my shop. Any suggestions? If I use one of your suggestions, I am sure I can find a free stamp to give away.

Do you have any tips you can share for the shop? If you do not want me to publish your comment or wish to share anything by email let me know, and I will not say a word.

On to why a lot of you are here, for a snoop around at my desk or my desk next to my desk?!?! The picture of my desk, is this desk I used to work under natural sunlight. See in the corner items on Ebay, glue, paints.

Well, a picture of what is underneath… Box of ribbons, and a lot of Wild Rose Studio paper that can not fit in any of my draws. Oh dear oh dear…. And you may notice a lot of uncrafty stuff there as well. I think it is about time I invested in another box for my ribbon I have accumulated… And what desk can you see there to craft on.... :)

MaudMartha said...

Nice to see someone else just as cluttered as me!That's a real crafters paradise. Thanks for your comments on my blog they're much appreciated. I've joined as a follower too. Luv Teresa x

Julia Dunnit said...

I THINK I've corrected the PIF link - it worked for me, so I've re-done it..anyway if I haven't, scroll down the left margin and click on my February archive, it's the second post, entitled 'so, this PiF thing...' Hope that helps. Now, I know you're really busy and I bet everyone appreciated your visit last week -go you! Now I think I have to offer some advice. Am confident when I say that you might have to actually use some of the WRS paper!! Good luck with creating a small working space - you only need about 6" square, so don't go too mad!!

sasa said...

Wow - that is a paper stack..wishing you well with the candy - great cause. Only think I can think of right now is Crafty BliSS Cards seeing as you have so much fun...
Thanks for sharing today,

Ohhh Snap said...

That is a desk chock full of crafty things lol. I'm thinking you know where everything is :D. I've no advice at all on selling, except keep at it. I really don't like Girl Scout cookie sales, but the girls learned it usually takes a run of 10 nos before they make a sale. Happy WOYWW :D. #74

Great blog candy! It's so funny when our craft supplies overrun our desks so much that we don't even leave ourselves space to craft! Happy WOYWW!

Spyder said...

trust me the bigger the room you have the more stuff you'll get and the smaller the space you'll be left with to craft in...(that sounded so much better in my head!) Happy WOYWW ((Lyn)) # 42

Chrissy said...

Hi Sapreet
Now I was really expecting a nice neat, tidy desk from you this week given all that lovely storage you were showing us last week, but you’re a crafter and that’s how our desks are supposed to look, right!
Happy WONWW
