On the left, a pile of images I am determined to get turned in to cards, at the back, 2 already done, on the right, one image and a stack of white & black card for layering.
In the posts below this one, there are a few cards I made towards last weekend, including one about how to avoid lines in your cardstock if you are embossing with a small folder, or border ones, so if you get time, you may want to have a quick look.
OK, that was the good bit. Now you may need to brace yourself for the next few photos. This was my craft room over the weekend;
Besides my main workdesk, I have IKEA worktops in three other places in my room, two along walls, and one which is a table attached to an EXPEDIT unit, which I use as my cutting/embossing station.
This one on the right is the worktop in front of my inkpad storage.
The desk on the left here, is my main workdesk, and as you can see is an utter mess. The reason for all this is that a lady I know from work has decided to give up crafting completely, and take up quilting, so she sent me an enormous tub full of loads of crafting stuff.
This on the right is my 'desk behind my desk'.
This is my cutting/embossing station. In order to get everything put away,it involved creating even more mess to start with.
Just so you know I was successful, this it what it looks like now:
Looking much better, with the easel I use for photographing my cards on.
The white turntable caddy at the back is something she gifted me, and I have to say, whilst I'd never bought one as I thought it unnecessary, I'm actually loving being able to have so much to hand in such a small space.

My cutting/embossing station, clean & tidy.
I've found homes for Tattered Angels glimmer mists, a couple of dozen pots of embossing powder, mica powders, Cosmic Shimmers version of Liquid Pearls and Stickles, masses of tools, and loads more I can't even remember it all now.
Needless to say, despite her saying she didn't want anything for it, I've sent her a huge bunch of flowers, and a Hobbycrafts voucher.
And, finally, our tickets arrived yesterday for the Happy Stampers festival at Port Sunlight, so I've also booked us a hotel for Friday night, as Doug said we could drive up Friday afternoon and stay over. Really excited, as we get to meet our Neet!( And some purchasing of crafting items (mainly stamps I expect) may well be made. :)
P.S. Forgot to say that I might be missing next week, as we go off on holiday on Tuesday. Fly to Tenerife in the morning, but thinking about it, the ship doesn't sail until midnight on Tuesday, so might be able to do a post, it will depend on my tablet, and the ships wifi. We shall see. xx
